Extractions: Home January 2002 January 2001 January 2000 ... December 1997 Felix Draeseke Symphony No. 2 Serenade in F ALEXANDER GRECHANINOV (1864-1956): Piano Trio No. 1 in C Minor, Op. 38, Cello Sonata in E Minor, Op. 113, Piano Trio No. 2 in G, Op. 128. Dedicated to Taneyev, the first trio is an exciting, Russian sounding piece, which anyone who likes the Tchaikovsky trio will absolutely love. There are hints of Rachmaninov in the last movement, which concludes on a much more optimistic note than the Tchaikovsky. The cello sonata comes across as a more serious work with great lyrical outpourings guaranteed to please the most romantic of listeners. The second trio is characterized by Slavic sounding melodies, and a real tug of war between key signatures, which is one of this composer's most distinguishing, stylistic features. It ends highly energetically, and recalls material from the first movement in Franckian, cyclical fashion. The performances and recorded sound here couldn't be better and blow the previous competition (nla) away. Moscow Rachmaninov Trio. Hyperion CDA 67295 (England) NINO ROTA (1911-1979): Piano Concerto in C, Piano Concerto in E "Piccolo mondo antico". Who'd have thought you'd ever be able to compare and contrast Rota piano concerto recordings? And have one of them be on a major label? Well, even though Chandos offered this coupling a couple of years ago (right about the same time as this, apparently, since this was published in 1999 although it was quickly deleted in the U.S.), the music is so irrepressibly upbeat, infectiously melodic and rhythmically acute with the C major work which opens like Mozart and then shows the composer's assimilation of Bartók, Prokofiev, Ravel and practically anyone else of importance in the 20th century (from 1960 and dedicated to Michelangeli), and the E major which opens like Rachmaninov and goes on to pay homage to Romanticism in general (from 1978), we had to make this available!

Extractions: Controversial director Michael Moore says big names like Meryl Streep and Martin Scorsese supported his outburst at the 2003 Academy Awards. The Fahrenheit 9/11 film-maker took to the stage at the glitzy ceremony to accept the award for his acclaimed movie Bowling For Columbine , and proceeded to call shame on President George W. Bush 's war on Iraq. But, while the media insisted many were infuriated by Moore's speech, the documentary maestro insists he was sent letters of support by many Hollywood 'A' listers - including Jeff Bridges and Jonathan Demme . Moore says, "Some complained about it on TV - James Woods and others, just horrible, disgusting people. I was glad they didn't like it. I got incredible notes, phone calls, e-mails and letters from Jonathan Demme Jeff Bridges Martin Scorsese Meryl Streep - I could go down a whole list, but I don't know if I should out them. Then, when everyone was saying that any person who criticized America at a time of war would be shunned and boycotted and ignored and vilified, the sales of my books and movies went through the roof."

Extractions: PART TWO Kirk McElhearn Johann Sebastian BACH Sonatas for Viola da Gamba and Harpsichord, Preludes and Fugues from the Well-Tempered Clavier Book I Alison Crum, viola da gamba; Laurence Cummings, harpsichordRec: November 1999. SIGNUM SIGCD024 This recording was a discovery that made me reconsider these pieces, which I had often considered to be minor works. Not only is the playing outstanding, but the recording quality of this disc is among the finest I have ever heard of these instruments. As I said in my review, "This is perhaps the best recording available of Bach's Sonatas for Viola da Gamba and Harpsichord. Beautiful performances by both musicians, instruments that sound fresh and alive, and an excellent recording make this an essential disc for any Bach lover." KM

Extractions: click on any cover to go directly to its review FIELD: Piano Concertos 5 And 6. Benjamin Frith, piano. Northern Sinfonia conducted by David Haslam. Naxos 8.554221 It must have been hard to live as a composer in the late Eighteenth and early Nineteenth century; after all your peers were Beethoven and Schubert! Such was the plight of the Irish-born composer John Field (1782-1837). On the other hand, Field had a successful career as a pianist. Not of the virtuoso Liszttian ilk, but rather one whose strength was color and sensitivity of touch. These characteristics emerge in Field's Fifth and Sixth Piano Concertos, The Fifth (1817) has the subtitle 'fire by lightning,' but the source of the title is unknown. It opens with a resounding Beethoven-like chord, but the music that follows more closely resembles the piano concertos of Chopin. The piano's role emphasizes delicate nuances, sonorous and intricate melodies, convincingly played by Benjamin Frith. The orchestral passages appropriately contrast the piano's role with drama and tension. The work brims with felicitous melodies and dramatic flourishes that engage the mind and heart. The Sixth Piano Concerto (1819) opens with a stately orchestral introduction that extends into an engaging 20 minute dialogue between piano and orchestra. A lovely, delicate larghetto is followed by an energetic but finely spun rondo. These concertos combine the drama and tension of Beethoven with the lyric delicacy of Chopin. Both are immensely enjoyable: they express the exuberant spirit of a composer who knew and loved the piano. Benjamin Frith plays with the freshness of discovery and wit that serve the composer perfectly. The Northern Sinfonia accompanies enthusiastically and the sound is clear and close, slightly wanting in reverberation. Those wanting to explore Field further are advised to try his Nocturnes, lovely, engaging pieces that admirably predate those of Chopin.

Extractions: Number in set: 1 This lovely, 1991 adaptation of Elizabeth Von Arnim's novel has a superb cast and a tone so mellow you can feel your pulse get slower. Josie Lawrence and Miranda Richardson play a pair of unhappily married women who rent an Italian villa for a month, sharing the rent with a crusty Englishwoman (Joan Plowright) and a lonely aristocrat (Polly Walker). Sun, rest, sinking into the green grass for long napsthey all have a soulful effect on the quartet, and then on the men in their lives who make a surprise visit. Mike Newell ( Into the West ) directs with seeming effortlessness, and it is impossible not to be swayed by the promise of restoration for these burdened charactersor for anyone alive. Wonderful performances all around, including a particularly sensitive one by Alfred Molina and a very funny one by Jim Broadbent.

Extractions: Number in set: 1 Julia Roberts's command of the screen is so effortless, it's easy for moviegoers to take her for grantedbut we shouldn't. Mona Lisa Smile about a noncomformist teacher at a private school who encourages students to pursue their individualityis pretty much an all-girls version of Dead Poets Society that mixes '50s fashions with '70s feminist thought. However, its lack of ambition doesn't diminish the talent that's gone into it: The writing and directing are well-honed and skillful; the actorsa talent-studded cast featuring Marcia Gay Harden, Kirsten Dunst, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Julia Stiles, and Juliet Stevensonare uniformly excellent. But without question, Mona Lisa Smile rides on Roberts's shoulders and she carries it with ease. She's possibly the only contemporary actor who simply owns a movie the way Bette Davis, Jean Arthur, or Claudette Colbert once did, radiating a engaging mix of intelligence, drive, and emotional warmth that cannot be matched.
