Who was Thomas Dyck Ackland Tellefsen? Outside of his native Norway, Tellefsen is not a household name in the romantic piano literature. Listening to the Mazurkas that open this disc, the influence of Frederic Chopin is unmistakable, and for good reason. Tellefsen moved to Paris in his twenties, met the great Polish composer, and, the rest they say, is history. But rather than being solely derivative, Tellefsen’s piano works, and we get all fifty-three here in chronologic order, show progressive melodic development. No doubt we continue to hear the voice of the master but this is much as would be the case for those coming to early Mozart after hearing his musical predecessor and mentor, Haydn. What aids the cause for Tellefsen’s catalog is the committed performance by one of Norway’s preeminent pianists, Jorgen Larsen, who treats even the smallest work as a miniature masterpiece.

Language: English | EPUB / MOBI | ISBN-10: 0802119042 | 2013 | 288 pages | 1 MB / 1 MB

In 1903, on Coney Island, an elephant named Topsy was electrocuted, and over the past century, this bizarre, ghoulish execution has reverberated through popular culture with the whiff of urban legend. But it really happened, and many historical forces conspired to bring Topsy, Thomas Edison, and those 6600 volts of alternating current together that day. Tracing them all in Topsy The Startling Story of the Crooked Tailed Elephant, P.T. Barnum, and the American Wizard, Thomas Edison, journalist Michael Daly weaves together a fascinating popular history, the first book on this astonishing tale.

Und jetzt – kurz vor seiner Pensionierung – gibt es gleich fünf Tote auf einmal, ausgerechnet in einer Buchhandlung. Die auch noch über ein sehr leckeres Büfett verfügt …

This CD presents the brief but remarkable output of songs by Duparc during his artistic period that was cut short by a nervous affliction. These works are beautifully performed by mezzo-soprano Sarah Walker and baritone Thomas Allen, with sensitive piano accompaniment by Roger Vignoles. The collection opens with Duparc's best known melody, L'invitation au voyage, which is a setting of a text from Baudelaire's Les fleurs du mal. The lovely rolling impressionist piano harmonies are played with exquisite fluidity, as they underscore Walker's velvety and intimate vocals. The Sérénade florentine is an impressionist lullaby to a loved one, delivered with touching emotion by Thomas Allen. Extase, Elégie and Testament show the influence of Wagner, and the Chanson triste is one of Duparc's early, Gounod-style songs. Au pays oú se fait la guerre (1869) is also an early work, but is particularly entrancing with simple modal harmonies and easily perceived song construction. By sensitive use of passing tones in the piano, the harmonies are subtly redefined and the music is extended dramatically toward the end by expressive on-rushes.
