Philip Blackburn - Music of Shadows (2014)
Electronic, Environmental Sound Art, Contemporary Classical | Innova 250 | 2014 | 70:40 | EAC (FLAC, cue, log) | Full Scans | Various File Hosts | 328 MB
Philip Blackburn (home-made instruments, electronics, field recordings), Studio Z Chorus, University of Colorado VAPA/The Sun Palace chorus and instrumentalists, Bob Paredes (clarinet)

Environmental sound artist, composer, author, filmmaker, designer, and sculptor Philip Blackburn’s (b. 1962) music has been called trippy, hallucinatory, intense and riveting. Verging on transcendental, Music of Shadows contains three substantial works that are explorations of ways of listening as much as they are music in the usual sense. Blackburn’s sound world maps the inner ear to the outer world in stunningly imaginative and time-defying ways, leaving impressions and shadows in its wake.

Gerald Finley, Julius Drake - Schubert: Winterreise (2014)
EAC Rip | Flac (Image + cue + log) | 1 CD | Full Scans | 266 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Hyperion | Catalog Number: 68034

The Gramophone-award winning partnership of Gerald Finley and Julius Drake turns to perhaps the most celebrated song-cycle of them all. Schubert’s Winterreise is a masterpiece of despair, astonishing in its bleakness and enthrallingly mesmerizing as the journey continues. Finley brings all his considerable dramatic powers to his performance—and all but submerges them under the ice.

Myroslav Skoryk - Violin and Piano Music (Soroka, Greene)
Classical | EAC: FLAC+Cue+Log | 1 Cd, Covers + Booklet | 365 Mb
Label:Toccata - Date:2012

The leading Ukrainian composer of today, Myroslav Skoryk (born in Lwów, now Lviv, in 1938) grew up in Siberia, where his family was deported after the Second World War, and he began to write music under the tutelage of other political prisoners there. He later studied with Kabalevsky in Moscow before settling back in his native city, where he soon became an important teacher and is now a major figure in Ukrainian cultural life. His music is direct and forthright, with echoes of Prokofiev: there are passages of driving energy and power and a keen sense of drama – and Skoryk, too, is not afraid of writing a glorious tune when he wants to.

Legendary Performances of Carreras: Donizetti - Maria Stuarda (Nello Santi, Montserrat Caballé, José Carreras) [2007/1972]
EAC Rip | FLAC, IMG+CUE, LOG | Covers | 2cd, 405 MB
Classical | Bravissimo | BRV 9909 | CD1:62'55; CD2:56'24

All of these are live recordings so the sound is quite variable. The standard square box contains separate soft plastic sleeves in which the cds are inserted. The advantage is that the cds are well protected (minor risk for scrapes compared to cardboard), but there is no information printed on the sleeve since it is made of plastic. There is some basic information printed on each cd (name, composer, cd #, the act/s and the date of the recording). There is also a small 24pg booklet that introduces the box including some photos as well as content description for each disc (opera, singers, time and location as well as a list of the separate tracks). I have been collecting these boxes for a while and always find it worthwhile as there are gems nicely interspersed in these collections. By Moonfish

Frank Zappa - Boulez Conducts Zappa: The Perfect Stranger (1984) {1995 Ryko Remaster Complete Series}
EAC rip (secure mode) | FLAC (tracks)+CUE+LOG -> 176 Mb | MP3 @320 -> 88 Mb
Full Artwork @ 300 dpi (jpg) -> 23 Mb | 5% repair rar
© 1995 Rykodisc / The Zappa Family Trust | RCD 10542
Classical / Avant-Garde / Modern Composition / Experimental Rock

Having recorded some works with a large orchestra in January 1983, in January 1984, Frank Zappa arranged for some of his chamber works to be performed by Pierre Boulez's Ensemble InterContemporain, a 16-piece group. "The Perfect Stranger," "Naval Aviation In Art?," and "Dupree's Paradise" were given this treatment, and the four remaining tracks are the product of Zappa's music synthesizer, the Synclavier. As usual, Zappa's "serious" works are rhythmically interesting and make for challenging listening.

Label/Cat#: Deutsche Grammophon # 419 499-2 GH | Country/Year: Germany 1986

"Vladimir Horowitz's April 20, 1986 Moscow recital has become so legendary that further comment seems superfluous. To say that this concert was an emotional experience is understatement. (...) The sound is excellent, if a bit close. I heard Horowitz in concert in Boston this same year - - this is how he sounded."

Antonio Vivaldi - Juditha triumphans devicta Holofernes barbarie
Orchestra da camera dell'Angelicum di Milano - Alberto Zedda

Label/Cat#: Sarx Rec. # ANG 97007-2 | Country/Year: Italy 1997, 1964
Genre: Classical | Style: Baroque, Sacred, Oratorio

"Italian conductor and musicologist Alberto Zedda is widely recognized as one of the world's most prominent authorities on the operas of Gioachino Rossini. (...) Although his work on behalf of Rossini remains widely appreciated, Zedda's handling of early opera composers has drawn criticism, particularly as he eschews period instruments and prefers to devise modern orchestrations for seventeenth century operas.

With her sensational role debut at the Vienna State Opera, superstar diva Anna Netrebko displays a performance of rare vocal and dramatic power. The Russian soprano sings the role of the unjustly accused second wife of British King Henry VIII, ‘veering between indignant fury and tender righteousness’ and demonstrating a new level of confidence in her technique with excellent ‘passagework, particularly in trills, and seamless runs even to the lowest notes’ (Opera News).

Jonas Kaufmann - You Mean the World to Me (2014)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 01:02:45 | 149 MB
Genre: Classical, Opera | Label: Sony Classical (Sony Music)

Jonas Kaufmann ist momentan der bekannteste und erfolgreichste Tenor der Welt, sieht gut aus, ist intelligent und vielseitig. Grundsätzlich könnte er also ohnehin tun, was er möchte, und alle wären begeistert. Doch hinter der neuen CD »Du bist die Welt für mich« steht er mit Überzeugung und Leidenschaft. Operetten-Evergreens wie »Dein ist mein ganzes Herz«, »Freunde, das Leben ist lebenswert« oder »Du bist die Welt für mich« sang er in der Vergangenheit regelmäßig als Zugabe bei Konzerten. Das sind Hits, die selbst Operettenverweigerer kennen und heimlich mögen. Das positive Lebensgefühl, die teilweise wortwitzigen Texte und einprägsamen Melodien der Stücke auf »Du bist die Welt für mich« haben Jonas Kaufmann bei den Aufnahmearbeiten am Album ein dauerhaftes Lächeln in die Stimme gezaubert
