  1. Soli Deo Gloria are proud to release the first in a new series celebrating the music of Brahms and of those who influenced him: **NEW RELEASE** [img]http://www.solideogloria.co.uk/images/cover21b.gif[/img] Johannes Brahms - Symphony 1 Brahms - Begräbnisgesang, Op.13 Mendelssohn – Mitten wir in Leben sind Op.23 Brahms – Schicksalslied The Monteverdi Choir | Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique | John Eliot Gardiner Release Date: 1 September 2008 Cat number: SDG 702 1CD [b] PRESS ACCLAIM FOR JOHN ELIOT GARDINER AND HIS BRAHMS PROJECT[/b] “at last we are hearing Brahms with a difference” – Andrew Clark, The Financial Times “A daring and thought-provoking rendition of the First Symphony ended a concert which was in every way a thrilling beginning” – Hilary Finch, The Times ‘Despite Gardiner’s stellar reputation as an early music specialist Brahms might be his real musical soulmate’ Ivan Hewett, The Telegraph [b]SALES INFO[/b] · SDG is proud to be releasing the first disc in a new series that sees John Eliot Gardiner and his Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique explore the music of Johannes Brahms. · Importantly, Gardiner has set Brahms’ symphonies in the context of his own superb and often neglected choral music, and that of the old masters he particularly cherished (Schütz and Bach especially) and of recent heroes of his (Mendelssohn, Schubert and Schumann). In doing so, Gardiner gains a new perspective on his symphonic compositions, drawing attention to the intrinsic vocality at the heart of his writing for orchestra. · The recordings from this series are drawn from Gardiner’s two-year Brahms and his Antecedents project which is in two parts. The first segment of the project, featuring the first two symphonies and the German Requiem, began in October 2007 and included two concerts at the newly reopened Royal Festival Hall. The second part of the project featuring the 3rd and 4th symphonies – also in a historical and vocal context - will take place in September/October 2008. · This project not only celebrates Brahms the composer, but traces the roots from which Brahms drew his creative inspiration. No other composer of the 19th century had such a close and informed relationship to music of the past and for this reason, great choral works by composers as varied as Bach, Schütz and Mendelssohn are performed alongside Brahms’ compositions. · This release is therefore the first in the series coinciding with the second part of Gardiner’s project, which will be touring extensively in Europe in the autumn. (Please see tour dates below) · This exciting new recording combines the large-scale vigour, drama and passion of Brahms with the expert musicianship and authentic approach that has come to be expected of John Eliot Gardiner, The Monteverdi Choir and his superb Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique. · Unique to this recording is the way in which Brahms’ Symphony is set within its historical and vocal context. As Gardiner explains: "When we approach Brahms nowadays the temptation is to concentrate exclusively on his orchestral output - the overtures, concertos and symphonies - and replicate a safe 'meat-and-two-veg' approach. But the more I thought about it, the more convinced I became that a worthwhile approach would be to juxtapose his symphonies with vocal music - music which Brahms himself cherished (studied, edited and conducted) - and so to set them in a historical Brahms-specific context rather presenting an encyclopaedic survey of all his orchestral output". · For this project, Gardiner not only explores Brahms’ musical origins but he attempts to reveal the very sounds which inspired him. Such authenticity has been sought by using instruments favoured by the composer. Valveless natural horns, for instance, give exactly the right flavour to the haunting, valley-resounding alphorn theme in the finale of the First Symphony. · This series is an important milestone for SDG heralding the development of the label beyond the music of Johann Sebastian Bach and the Renaissance choral repertoire which have so far dominated its catalogue. · Inside the same elegant packaging used for the Bach Cantatas CDs, the liner notes feature an in-depth conversation between John Eliot Gardiner and composer Hugh Wood.

  2. Well, I am now ready to present an "insight" into at least a part of my musical world on video. The various videos that can be seen on this page: http://www.dwsolo.com/videos.htm (high definition mpg files housed on Googlevideo) and on http://www.esnips.com/web/dwsolosHomeVideos (lower definition wmv files housed on esnips) were recorded on video tape at various times between 1984 and 2000. (The choice between high definition mpg and low definition wmv will depend on your computer setup and connection speed.) These videos include my compositions for classical guitar and alto voice including April, the sneezing song the personal ads song and the asexual blues, and stage productions in which I perform in drag and burst forth with very high notes and, at times, unashamed histrionics. Kind regards ________________________ [url=http://www.acutrack.com/services/dvd/]dvd replication[/url]|[url=http://www.cardcraft-uk.co.uk/cricut-c-476.html]cricut[/url]
  3. Hi all In case there are guitarists out there looking for repertoire, and especially repertoire for "guitar plus" (guitar plus flute, clarinet, voice, cello etc) you might like to browse my new "shopfronts". I have one at Lulu.com in which I am selling arrangements at rock bottom prices ranging from renaissance to folksong and a few romantic songs : http://stores.lulu.com/store.php?fAcctID=1319207 The other is at MyScore Store and includes my own compositions published by DaCapo arrangements of classics such as Music for While, Come into the Garden Maud and Après un rêve and one or two new pieces specially for virtuoso guitarists (including Professor Burble's First Invention, which is very effective and great fun) http://www.myscorestore.com/list/user/id/95/dwsolo.html I hope some folk will find pieces of interest there. In both places there are preview pages of each piece and, in most cases you can hear performances of the music too, if so you desire. This collection will grow over the next year, as I realise my project to notate all my arrangements and compistions still hidden away in scribbled pencil format in my pile of manuscript books.... Kind regards David W Solomons http://www.dwsolo.com ________________________ [url=http://www.acutrack.com/services/dvd/]dvd replication[/url]|[url=http://www.cardcraft-uk.co.uk/cricut-c-476.html]cricut[/url]

    2011 in music

    Though I've listened to more albums from 2010 than any other year, I've found it to be the most disappointing year thus far, with only 4 albums deserving of my "four star rating" or above. 2011 will be much better, I believe, as it will contain many new albums from bands I am very fond of. Here is a short list of bands I know of that are releasing things! of Montreal - False Priest (no idea when this will finally come out!) Architecture in Helsinki - Vision Revision (this was supposed to come out last year and it isn't even done yet) Vampire Weekend - Contra (this might not be very good from the songs already out) Gorillaz - Plastic Beach Final Fantasy/Owen Pallet - Heartland Spoon - Transference She & Him - Volume Two MGMT - Congratulations The Magnetic Fields - Realism Massive Attack - Heligoland Smashing Pumpkins - (more of) Tear Garden by Kaleidoscope New albums without names yet from: LCD Soundsystem !!! Interpol (Paul Banks said that it will be better than the last one!) The Strokes (I thought this last year too but they're apparently back in the studio so it's more than a rumor now! but I have low expectations regardless) blink-182 (hoping this won't be too awful) My Chemical Romance (this will be pretty awful) I'm sure I'm forgetting some, and there will be surprise albums later... This year seems exciting any which way though! Beach House's album [i]Teen Dream[/i] already leaked back in November and I'm quite fond of it, or at least the first half of it. Much better than whatever they've done in the past (though I'm just judging that their past work was awful from the singles).

  5. Audio mastering is essential in today’s day and age of excellence. It is done to make the track sound professional. The audio mastering can be attempted for correcting the tracks in terms of frequency, dynamics, width and loudness. It is also essential for enhancing the sound and making it a sweeter sounding track. How the mastering is done? Mastering is done using tools that eq or compress the sound accordingly. Besides these tools, the mastering requires a monitoring system and an acoustically suited room. Mastering is performed by a mastering engineer with expertise and experience. The trained ears of a mastering engineer can identify any lags in the recorded track and fulfill them. In effect, mastering makes up for any kind of deficiency that might be present in a recorded track. This would also mean making the sound sweeter or enhancing the feel of the sound, which is highly essential in today’s competitive music industry. Mastering renders the finish and the finesse that is demanded by the music track. This would make sure that the music track sounds good among its peers. However, care need to taken in not making the sound too loud to kill the song. professional mastering renders clarity and loudness to the song, which makes it, sound professional. The mastering service is now available online as well. The online mastering services are at par with that of its attended counterparts, in terms of quality and perfection. It is also highly convenient and affordable as compared to the attended mastering services.

  8. This isn't exactly a miracle, but it's something that has been sitting right in our kitchens for thousands of years that we never really look into all that much. Food. [url="http://www.whfoods.com/index.html"]World's Healthiest Foods[/url] I found this site about a year ago and it's wonderful! Recipes, fact sheets on foods and nutrients, and some information about various health related medical studies. :) Wasn't really sure if this should go here but it's the first health related thread I found!
