Pierre Monteux had one of the longest active careers as a conductor, probably exceeded among famous musicians by Pablo Casals and Leopold Stokowski. He retained a youthful appearance with black hair (although his mustache was white), and was expressed by any suggestion that the color was not natural. He said anyone who said otherwise was welcome to come with shampoo, alcohol, or whatever to wash his hair and prove the color was natural. "Also you might mention that I have all my teeth," he added. This story also illustrates his sense of humor and genial nature. It is often stated that the man made no enemies, or even that he was loved by all.

Organ music magical,symphonic, dancing, and jazzy from one of the world’s great wizards of the organ, Thomas Trotter, performed on the magnificent 2002 Klais organ in Birmingham’s Symphony Hall.
An unashamedly entertaining selection of old and new, with well-loved pieces from Saint-Saëns and Widor to Thomas Trotter’s own new transcription of Dukas’s ‘The Sorcerer’s Apprentice’. Two sets of dances - one from the 16th-century Susato and the other from the 20th-century John Gardner are a riot of rhythmic energy and expressive colour.

Loss of hearing forced Smetana to leave his position at the Provincial Theatre and withdraw from social life and his musical career. In 1876 he moved to his daughter Zofie's house in Jabkenice. Here he was able to enjoy the calm and quite needed so that he could focus on his compositions. The change in his circumstances made him reflect on his life and he captured his feelings in his String Quartet No. 1 in E-minor, "From My Life". Smetana described the work as “intimate and private music for four instruments talking about my life”. However, the opposite was true of this epic score of programme music. Until this time the techniques used by Smetana in this quartet had only been used by composers writing for symphony orchestra. He used symphonic techniques with brilliant effect for chamber music.

Playing host to an ad hoc group of musicians, the Prazák Quartet presents two of Arnold Schoenberg's classic works in a program that coheres most effectively. The pairing of the expressionist melodrama Pierrot lunaire and the angular, twelve-tone Suite requires the addition of a female vocalist, flute doubling on piccolo, two clarinets, a bass clarinet, and a piano to the Prazák's members, so this is a practical match-up for a concert, provided the players are available. Soprano Alda Caiello delivers the sprechstimme of Pierrot lunaire with a variety of expressions that sort with the bizarre moods and characters in the songs, and her delivery is theatrical, intense, and disturbing in its edginess. The instrumentalists are obviously at home in Schoenberg's music, so the complexities of Pierrot's tense accompaniment and the pungent counterpoint of the Suite come off with apparent ease. The recording space is quite spacious and reverberant, so this takes some of the harshness off Schoenberg's dissonances, and the roominess of the sound provides a great deal of separation, so the players can be differentiated with little difficulty. This may not be the best choice for listeners who like dry textures and crisp definition in these pieces, but that preference should take nothing away from the merits of this album.

Genre: Rock, Pub-Rock, New Wave / Label: Graham Parker

Graham Parker Stereotyped early in his career as the quintessential angry young man, Graham Parker was one of the most celebrated singer/songwriters to emerge from England's pub rock scene in the early '70s. Drawing heavily from Van Morrison and the Rolling Stones, Parker developed a sinewy fusion of driving rock & roll and confessional folk-rock, highlighted by his indignant passion, biting sarcasm, and bristling anger. At the outset of his career, his albums crackled with pub rock energy, snide witticisms, and perceptive insights, earning him a devoted following of fans and critics, who lavished praise on his debut, 1976's Howlin' Wind, recorded with the Rumour, his backing band of pub rock all-stars.

All of the Estudios sencillos represent, in a few lines of music, the stylistic evolution of Leo Brouwer throughout his compositional itinerary. The first series of ten pieces, conceived as a pedagogical study of particular difficulties, was written in 1971 and still embodies the Cuban influences of the early Brouwer. Starting with the very first, which had been largely sketched in the early Sixties, and in which the study of syncopations against a bass is joined to a typical South-American rhythm, all of the Studies focus on the challenges which the students may face when confronting a style markedly different from that of the simple tunes or regular arpeggios found in the teaching methods hitherto used – and which dated back from the early nineteenth century; this does not apply, of course, to the concert etudes written for the professional performers.
