In 1977 The Metropolitan Museum of Art presented Age of Spirituality: Late Antique and Early Christian Art, Third to Seventh Century, the largest exhibition ever to focus on the period that spans the transition between the classical and medieval ages. In keeping with the didactic spirit of the exhibition, the Museum held a symposium in November 1977 to provide the public with a broad background for appreciation of this little-known field and to offer art historians the provocative speculations and conclusions of their colleagues. In addition to art history, the distinguished scholars who participated in the symposium discussed the theology, literature, politics, economics, and architecture of the first centuries of the Christian Era.

Cinquant'anni dopo le indagini a Bay City, il cinico Takeshi Kovacs ha cambiato custodia e lavoro: adesso è un mercenario al soldo del governo di Sanzione IV, pagato per soffocare una rivolta. Ma la fedeltà a una causa non è mai stato il suo forte, così, quando gli viene offerta una bella somma per partecipare a una spedizione "archeologica", Kovacs si dimostra più che disponibile a lasciare il vecchio lavoro per gettarsi in questa nuova missione. Lo scopo della spedizione è il ritrovamento e il recupero di una nave marziana, la civiltà più antica e più evoluta dell'universo.

Da tempo immemorabile, Harlan's World - un pianeta ricoperto dagli oceani e con soltanto il cinque per cento di terra abitabile - è dominato da un'unica famiglia: gli Harlan, appunto. È questo il luogo in cui è nato Takeshi Kovacs e in cui l'ex mercenario è tornato. Ma New Hakkaido, la fredda, insensibile e labirintica capitale, è un posto molto pericoloso, soprattutto per Takeshi, che prima di diventare un soldato era un elemento di spicco nelle gang locali…

A fascinating amalgam of personalities and styles, this 1996 release from Franco-Italian accordion virtuoso Richard Galliano achieves a wholly original musical synthesis. Bracketed by an opening track from tango ace Astor Piazzolla and a concluding piece from Jaco Pastorius, the session finds the common ground in such seemingly disparate choices. With nine Galliano originals in between, the result is a cohesive, uncompromising set of performances and an essential work in the leader's discography.

Legendary accordionist Richard Galliano again forges new paths in classical music with this album of well-known Mozart pieces. The third album of classical repertoire from the legendary jazz accordionist, this follows his extremely successful albums of Bach and Vivaldi. Richard Galliano shows a clear empathy for the music of Mozart, largely borne from his origins playing classical music at the beginning of his career before turning his attentions to jazz. Here he enlists the help of a talented sextet of musicians to enable the listener to experience some of these best-loved works as theyve never heard them before.

Il mistero della nascita dell'uomo viene dibattuto da oltre centocinquant'anni. Cos'è che ha scatenato quell'insieme di cambiamenti morfologici, sociali e psicologici che hanno fatto sì che una popolazione di animali dalle fattezze scimmiesche evolvesse in una forma di vita inedita, che noi chiamiamo Homo? Dov'è avvenuto il passaggio? Quando e, soprattutto, come? Cosa ci ha resi quel che siamo? A questo «mistero dei misteri» si sono applicati naturalisti, antropologi, filosofi e paleontologi. L'ingresso nel dibattito di un primatologo, che studia le scimmie attuali, porta aria fresca e una teoria nuova, che come tutte le teorie nuove fa discutere, e come tutte le buone teorie si basa su dati solidi e anni di ricerche…

“[These suites] have rarely been recorded or promoted by harpsichordists during the most recent revival of interest in ‘early music.’” I realize that Richard Egarr is entitled to his own opinions—his liner notes on an earlier release, for example, likened the humor in Purcell’s harpsichord music to that of the wonderful old 1950s BBC comedy The Goon Show —but he’s not entitled to his own facts. Christopher Brodersen pointed out in a 2011 review of these works featuring Laurence Cummings ( Fanfare 34:5) that ArkivMusic listed nine complete sets played on the harpsichord, with several others on the piano. I find some of the suites have considerably more recordings than that, in 2014: 26 for the Suite in A Major, 28 for the Suite in D Minor, 25 for the Suite in E Minor, 47 for the Suite in E Major. If such numbers reflect rare recordings, I have to wonder what Egarr would consider a moderate number, let alone a frequent one.

A feature documentary on the life and work of filmmaker, Richard Linklater. Produced and Directed by Louis Black (founder of SXSW Festivals and the Austin Chronicle) and Karen Bernstein (Emmy and Grammy Award winning documentary filmmaker), this is an unusual look at a fiercely independent style of filmmaking that arose from Austin, Texas in the 1980s/ early 90's and how Linklater's films, Slacker, Dazed and Confused, Waking Life and Boyhood, sparked a low budget, in your own backyard movement in this country and around the world.
