Good Shaolin monk story. Actually contains some interesting Buddhist thought. Martial arts directed by Yuen Biao, and it shows. Impressive wu shu performances throughout. Lengthy training scenes, excellent finale. Story has a dead spot in the middle in which the hero (the annointed Shaolin successor) wanders the country in disguise and saves a town from being overrun by bandits.

Chamber music has always formed the heart of Maria João Pires’s musicianship. Indeed, she has often commented that she is happier working with others than performing on her own. “Not sharing a stage is very difficult for me,” she once remarked (in an interview for ArtsJournal in 2012) “You are apart from the group, apart from community, apart from everything. You become different and special. And, if you become different and special, you’re alone.”

Having reunited for 1976's The Best of Two Worlds, saxophonist Stan Getz and Brazilian singer/guitarist João Gilberto celebrated the album's release with a week of shows at San Francisco's Keystone Corner. Marking over a decade since the pair had made history with 1964's landmark Getz/Gilberto album, the shows, which took place between May 11-16, 1976, would prove one of the rare times they appeared live together. Resonance Records' 2016 album, Getz/Gilberto '76 (and the separate release Moments in Time), documents these shows via live recordings made by Keystone Korner club owner Todd Barkan.

Jo Nesbo - Il dottor Prottor e la superpolvere per petonauti
Italian | Salani | 2012 | ISBN: 8867150030 | 98 pages | EPUB | 4 MB

Il dottor Prottor è uno scienziato pazzo. O quasi. Da tempo sta cercando l'invenzione del secolo, e dopo l'incontro con Tina e Bulle, due ragazzini suoi vicini di casa, sembra che il suo sogno si stia per realizzare: insieme hanno scoperto una polvere per fare puzzette esplosive, assolutamente non puzzolenti, così potenti da rompere i pantaloni, spalancare le porte e, a volte, far finire la gente sugli alberi. Ma non hanno fatto i conti con i due grassi e truci gemelli Tronz, per non parlare del Buco della Morte, dell'intricato sistema fognario di Oslo e soprattutto dell'affamata anaconda che vi abita. Personaggi assurdi e indimenticabili, una folle corsa dell'immaginazione degna di Roald Dahl, un conto alla rovescia verso un finale col botto.

This work is very hard to characterize emotionally, but it sighs and it sings enigmatically. Surprisingly, so many performances are very straightforward, never capturing these soulful, longing qualities that almost approach reverie at times. Not so this time. The interplay here is amazing, Pires' delicate approach is ideal for this music, and the conducting is elastic in that "Furtwanglerian" way. But don't get the impression this is bloated, Romantic Mozart…it's not. (Maybe Furtwangler wasn't the right name to evoke after all.

Maria-Joào Pires has recorded these concertos before, for Erato, and this experience shows in assured playing. In K449 I find the sound of the Vienna Philharmonic, recorded in Vienna's Musikverein, too big: the string section seems large and the hall over-reverberant. Furthermore, the piano sounds plummy, and even those who dislike the fortepiano may question its suitability. With these reservations, one can enjoy Pires's deft and sensitive performance, without strong individuality but offering consistent intelligence, and the brisk finale shows her and Abbado at their best. Even so, this is a romanticized slow movement; the gooey orchestral sound does not help, but the pianist is also partly responsible in a way that I have sometimes noted in her performances of Mozart's sonatas.
