A Thousand Thoughts, whose title comes from the traditional Swedish melody that opens the program, is not a release of new material but a compilation of prior Kronos Quartet performances that draw on international materials. They go back as far as 1989, but the majority come from after 2000, when this aspect of the group's repertoire has become more important. As such, your reaction to them may well depend on whether you think this kind of experiment represents a laudable curiosity or a drive-by approach to world music. Even the detractors, though, would do well to note the following positives. The Kronos Quartet have been highly influential in this regard, as they have in so many others, and it's due to their efforts that it's commonplace nowadays to hear tango music (as you do here) or something similar in a string quartet recital. The Kronos do not simply rely on standards that fit the quartet medium but often feature representatives of the ethnic traditions involved, pushing themselves a bit to enter into exotic sound worlds. (Especially successful in this regard is the concluding version of "Danny Boy," sung by the late Texas country singer and yodeler Don Walser, the so-called Pavarotti of the Plains; this version was available on one of Walser's albums, but is not exactly a common item.) The sound engineering associated with the Kronos has always been high-class, and this collection of live and studio tracks recorded over almost a 25-year period holds together as a unit quite well. Likewise, the quartet itself has maintained a consistent sound over the several changes in personnel represented here. This has the potential to serve as a good sampler for those interested in the ethnomusicological side of contemporary chamber music. ~ James Manheim

Tim Burton in 10 album

Che si tratti di riprese reali o di stop motion, Tim Burton ha costruito in oltre 30 anni un mondo cinematografico in cui meraviglia e poesia si sposano allo stile gotico e ad uno humor macabro. Con poche eccezioni, è il compositore Danny Elfman a fargli da spalla in questa avventura. Senza le immagini di Burton, la musica di Elfman non avrebbe lo stesso sapore, e viceversa. Lo hanno dimostrato ancora una volta nel 2019 con il travolgente Dumbo.

Jorge Bolet & Franz Liszt

Fra le sue dita, la musica di Franz Liszt è emersa sotto una nuova luce, grazie ad una visione allo stesso tempo poetica e lirica, molto lontana dal virtuosismo gratuito e chiassoso che si sente troppo spesso. Ai primi degli anni Ottanta, Jorge Bolet incide per DECCA un’antologia del compositore ungherese che farà storia, alla quale si aggiungono altre incisioni realizzate per l’etichetta spagnola ENSAYO, per RCA negli anni Settanta, per EVEREST nel 1960, nonché registrazioni di studio e radiofoniche negli anni Cinquanta, quando aveva ancora tutte le sue straordinarie risorse tecniche.

Bernard Herrmann e Alfred Hitchcock: una coppia quasi perfetta

Dal 1955 al 1966 il regista Alfred Hitchcock e il compositore Bernard Herrmann hanno lavorato insieme in una serie di capolavori come Psyco o Intrigo internazionale. Una collaborazione tanto eccezionale quanto turbolenta…
