German violinist Tanja Becker-Bender returns to the Romantic Violin Concerto series along with Hyperion house band the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra conducted by Garry Walker. Volume sixteen features concertos by Busoni and Strauss. In D major, the key of Beethoven's and Brahms's violin concertos, Busoni's Violin Concerto is clearly intended to continue their lineage although it never descends into mere imitation. The seventeen-year-old Strauss wrote his Violin Concerto during his final year at the Ludwigsgymnasium. The work is fairly unknown on the concert platform, but Becker-Bender's interpretation should win it new friends.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1974 and the culmination of a life's work, The Denial of Death is Ernest Becker's brilliant and impassioned answer to the "why" of human existence. In bold contrast to the predominant Freudian school of thought, Becker tackles the problem of the vital lie: man's to acknowledge his own mortality. In doing so, he sheds new light on the nature of humanity and issues a call to life and its living that still resonates more than 30 years after its writing.

Traditional Music of Notional Species Vol. II pays a return visit to the otherworldly noumenal ecosystem inside Rashad Becker's head, relaying indecipherable messages in something resembling an expressive language of psychoacoustic, cuneiform glyphs. No Rosetta Stone is required to comprehend these deeply abstract auditory tableaus; all you need is an open mind and functioning set of lugs for reception, whilst whatever counts for your sense of consciousness will fill in the gaps, and that’s where the “fun” starts.

Ernest Chausson’s death in 1899 in a bicycle accident robbed French music of a major talent. Almost his entire orchestral output fits on this extremely fine CD. Yan Pascal Tortelier’s performance of the richly romantic Symphony is the best since Munch’s Boston Symphony recording. Like Munch, Tortelier knows how to keep the music moving along–he’s only an insignificant two minutes slower than Munch for the whole work–without overindulging the more luscious moments, which in Chausson’s opulent setting really do take care of themselves. Even better, rather than some overplayed encore piece by another composer, the symphony is coupled with two very attractive, rarely heard tone poems and two charming orchestral excerpts from the composer’s incidental music to Shakespeare’s The Tempest. The orchestra plays with conviction, Chandos’ sonics are gorgeous, and if you don’t buy this disc, you’re missing out on some marvelous stuff.

Ernest Hemingway - Di là dal fiume e tra gli alberi
Italian | Mondadori | 1993 | ISBN: 8804455136 | 336 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Scritto nel 1950, Di là dal fiume e tra gli alberi narra le vicende di un cinquantenne colonnello americano reduce dalla Seconda guerra mondiale, follemente innamorato di una ventenne nobildonna europea. Con i suoi pazzeschi e disperati modi di dire, di fare, di bere, di distruggersi con dolcezza, l'ufficiale diventa l'ennesima maschera dello scrittore che, giunto alla maturità, inizia a sentire tutto il peso della propria vita. Fa da affascinante sfondo al racconto un ambiente in gran parte veneziano, dall'Hotel Gritti all'Harry's Bar, dalla laguna ai palazzi della buona società, ma anche la campagna di Fossalta in cui il protagonista - come l'autore giovane, come il tenente Henry di Addio alle armi - trent'anni prima é stato ferito e per la prima volta ha scoperto la caducità umana.

Ernest Hemingway - Fiesta
Italian | Mondadori | 1996 | ISBN: 880457111X | 288 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Pubblicato nel 1926, "Fiesta" ebbe un immediato successo, collocando Hemingway tra i più ammirati scrittori di quella che Gertrude Stern definì la 'generazione perduta'. Romanzo per quei tempi di palpitante attualità, per le situazioni che descrive e per i riferimenti alle burrascose inquietudini di un gruppo di emigrati internazionali, "Fiesta" tratteggia l'intensa suggestione dell'ambiente, le notti insonni trascorse tra clamorose sbornie e tempestose discussioni con uno stile tutto teso tra cronaca e poesia. La narrazione, caratterizzata tra l'altro da un dialogato che rimane esemplare per incisività ed eleganza, viene definita, in una lettera di Hemingway al suo editore, "non una satira, ma una tragedia che ha come eroe la terra".
