This disc includes all the music for string quartet written by Louis Andriessen, recorded by the Schoenberg Quartet in the years before the group dissolved in 2009. Even in the early Quartet in two movements, written when Andriessen was 18, the composer's inventiveness and quirky sense of humor peek through. It's an affable piece, entirely professional and assured, with enough individuality to be recognizably the work of a composer who has something to say and the wherewithal to say it.
While the connection between Cuban pianist Omar Sosa and Italian trumpeter Paolo Fresu was established back in 2006, their partnership truly blossomed with Alma (Ota Music, 2012), a beauty of an album with a soft sell approach. That record—quite possibly the most moving item in either man's discography—prioritized heart over all else, and this follow-up date follows suit.
En Ciertos Momentos / In certi momenti (At Certain Times) is the third album by Italian pop/rock singer Eros Ramazzotti, produced by Piero Cassano and released in 1987 on the BMG label. The decision was taken not to release any singles from In certi momenti in the domestic Italian market, although "La luce buona delle stelle" was released in other European territories. This track features the first of many vocal collaborations between Ramazzotti and other singers, in this case English singer/actress Patsy Kensit. In certi momenti topped the Italian Albums chart, selling 800,000 copies, while global sales currently stand at 3,000,000.
Nuovi eroi (New Heroes) is the second album by Italian pop/rock singer Eros Ramazzotti, produced by Piero Cassano and released in 1986 on the BMG label. Lead single "Adesso tu" won the 1986 San Remo Music Festival, and topped the singles charts in Italy, Switzerland and Austria. The version included on the album is 1:05 longer than the single version, with additional instrumental passages. Nuovi eroi went on to reach #1 in the same three countries. It is the first of eleven consecutive full-length studio albums by Ramazzotti, up to and including 2009's Ali e radici, to top the Italian Albums chart. The CD issue of the album contains four additional tracks taken from Ramazzotti's debut album Cuori agitati.
