The music of distinguished American composer Charles Wuorinen is notable for its compositional wit, dynamic virtuosity and intellectual rigor. This CD features vocal chamber works from the late 1990s to 2007, a new piano work, and Wuorinen’s ‘remakings’ of music by Josquin des Prés. Ashberyana, a major new work commissioned by Da Camera of Houston, sets the dazzling poetry of John Ashbery for a tour-deforce ensemble led by the composer. Fenton Songs I and Fenton Songs II offer contrasting poems by James Fenton, ranging from lyrical confessions of love to the horrors of Tiananmen Square. Two personal solo piano pieces – one dedicated to conductor James Levine – and Josquiniana, composed for the Brentano Quartet, complete this compelling portrait of one of today’s most important musical voices.

French | 2009 | 93 Pages | ISBN: 2268067807 | EPUB | 118 KB

Dans tous les récits de Henry James, il y a une présence invisible et inquiétante. Pourtant, il ne s'agit pas toujours d'un fantôme. Il peut s'agir d'une présence plus terrible, plus déroutante et plus évanescente. C'est le cas de L'Image dans le tapis qui est construit comme un roman policier dont le coupable se révèle être l'enquêteur lui-même, le malheureux narrateur, coupable d'être le seul sur la piste de cette mystérieuse présence et de laisser le crime s'accomplir, coupable enfin de faire d'une œuvre littéraire le cœur de son existence…

George Fenton delivers on his soundtrack for Anna and the King with an instrumental score that deftly mixes sweeping orchestrations with ethnic percussion. The main theme "Arrival at the Palace" begins with a very exotic violin solo that quickly blossoms into an epic orchestral movement seemingly ready to crescendo at a moment's notice (and it does!). Shorter cues such as "Letter of the Week" and "The House" are passages that perfectly convey the movie's exoticism and its melancholic moods. Throughout, Fenton's music seems to balance between excitement and sadness–the perfect sonic interpretation of The King and I's classic tale. Obviously, many folks will turn to this soundtrack for Joy Enriquez's Babyface-produced single "How Can I Not Love You," included at the very beginning of this disc. One hopes they'll stick around long enough to enjoy the film's score, one of Fenton's very best.

Roger Fenton (1819–1869) was England's most celebrated photographer during the 1850s, the young medium's most glorious moment. After studying law and painting, Fenton took up the camera in 1851 and immediately began to produce highly original images. During a decade of work he mastered every photographic genre he attempted: architectural photography, landscape, portraiture, still life, reportage, and tableau vivant.

His Japanese fans reverently dubbed Fenton Robinson "the mellow blues genius" because of his ultra-smooth vocals and jazz-inflected guitar work. But beneath the obvious subtlety resides a spark of constant regeneration – Robinson tirelessly strives to invent something fresh and vital whenever he's near a bandstand. The soft-spoken Mississippi native got his career going in Memphis, where he'd moved at age 16. First, Rosco Gordon used him on a 1956 session for Duke that produced "Keep on Doggin'." The next year, Fenton made his own debut as a leader for the Bihari Brothers' Meteor label with his first reading of "Tennessee Woman." His band, the Dukes, included mentor Charles McGowan on guitar. T-Bone Walker and B.B. King were Robinson's idols.

A 1996 Academy Award nominee for Best Dramatic Score, Braveheart is one of composer James (Titanic) Horner's most accomplished works. Utilizing the full range of the London Symphony Orchestra, the Choristers of Westminster Abbey, and a small ensemble of traditional folk instrumentalists, Horner largely eschews the bombast typical of the genre and cuts a more emotionally complex–and satisfying–musical course through this 14th-century tale of betrayal and rebellion. This album presents ample evidence of why Horner is currently at the peak of his profession.

Modern Electric Blues, Chicago Blues | Alligator Records #ALCD 4705

One of the most subtly satisfying electric blues albums of the '70s. Fenton Robinson never did quite fit the "Genuine Houserocking Music" image of Alligator Records – his deep, rich baritone sounds more like a magic carpet than a piece of barbed wire, and he speaks in jazz-inflected tongues, full of complex surprises. The title track hits with amazing power, as do the chugging "The Getaway," a hard-swinging "You Say You're Leaving," and the minor-key "You Don't Know What Love Is." In every case, Robinson had recorded them before, but thanks to Bruce Iglauer's superb production, a terrific band, and Robinson's musicianship, these versions reign supreme.

For the most part, another easy-going trip to the mellower side of contemporary blues, Robinson's jazzy tone and buttery vocals applied to a couple of his '50s-era numbers ("Crazy Crazy Lovin'" and "Schoolboy") along with some intriguing new iteams and Lowell Fulson's mournful "Sinner's Prayer." Tasty backing helps too. His Japanese fans reverently dubbed Fenton Robinson "the mellow blues genius" because of his ultra-smooth vocals and jazz-inflected guitar work. But beneath the obvious subtlety resides a spark of constant regeneration – Robinson tirelessly strives to invent something fresh and vital whenever he's near a bandstand…

Modern Electric Blues, Chicago Blues | Evidence Music #ECD 26025-2

Fenton Robinson is among the second-line blues musicians who have come close but never made it over the hump. He has certainly got the guitar goods, and his vocals are often memorable and anguished. Unfortunately, the 13 songs he did on this 1989 date were mostly good but nowhere as intense as he has delivered on other occasions. Neither is the instrumental work on this Evidence CD; his solos are firmly articulated, often elaborately constructed and paced, but they lack impact. Too many times Robinson falls just short of turning in a triumphant or exciting number, either through a less than emphatic vocal or a mundane solo.

This soundtrack album to the acclaimed BBC television series Blue Planet – Seas of Life is by George Fenton. Isolated from their accompanying videos, soundtrack albums often just don't hold up. Even if you haven't seen this television program, however, that is not the case with the Blue Planet CD. Indeed, the music here works quite well as a "sit down and listen" album. It also seems that the neo-classical arrangements surely capture the mystery, majesty, beauty, playfulness, power, and even terror of the ocean world very well. You may be reaching for a towel after listening to this one.

After James' first album of electronic Baroque keyboard music, Rameau, proved to be a charming left-field success, the erstwhile jazz composer/arranger came up with a sequel devoted to the miraculous sonatas of Domenico Scarlatti. The results here, though, aren't quite as charming. He takes more timbral and textural liberties, putting unneeded additional weight into the fabric. His keyboard arsenal had been updated considerably from the Rameau record, and these new gleaming digital textures strike the ear as a bit harsh, closer in some cases to Don Dorsey's Disneyland tweaking of Bach and Beethoven than to James' previous record. James also sneaks in an acoustic Steinway, which he uses conversionally at times with the electronic instruments, as well as a lone sampled harpsichord in the "Allegro."

Intrada is proud to announce the premiere CD release of James Horner's score for the 2015 documentary Living in the Age of Airplanes. Horner was passionate about flying and loved to score the subject of aviation. Having previously scored the documentaries First in Flight and The Fourth Horseman, not to mention films with flying as a central theme such as The Rocketeer, Horner gravitated to the subject and poured his heart into it. One can hear Horner's very soul soaring through his music. Through a beautiful melding of wordless vocals, electronics and orchestra, Horner takes the listener on a musical journey, around the world, through time, and into the air above the clouds.

Barclay James Harvest was, for its first few years, one of the real hard-luck outfits in the field of progressive rock and art rock. Though the group later enjoyed considerable success in Europe with the Polygram label, its first five years on EMI were littered with gorgeous songs that somehow never sold the way they should have. Perhaps it was just that they had too much musicianship and not enough personality; they were indeed, in some respects, "poor man's Moody Blues," John Lees and Les Holroyd being less charismatic than that rival group's Justin Hayward and John Lodge. This 1992 concert from the Town and Country in London is a fair if way-too-short account of who and what they were, 25 years into their history…
