Dmitry Shostakovich - Hamlet: First Complete Recording of the Published Film Score (1964/2004)

EAC | FLAC | Tracks (Cue&Log) ~ 280 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320/Stereo) ~ 191 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included
Genre: Soundtrack, Score, Classical | Label: Naxos | # 8.557446 | Time: 01:02:26

This here is the first ever complete recording of the published film score by Dmitry Shostakovich! Written in the early 1960s for Kozintsev's film (which won several film festival prizes), this score was used for a number of ballets based on Hamlet, and includes music not used in the final cut of the film! The Russian Philharmonic Orchestra brings the music fully to life.

De Rore: Missa Doulce Memoire, Missa A Note Negre - Rice, Brabant Ensemble (2013)
EAC Rip | Flac (Tracks + cue + log) | 1 CD | Full Scans | 300 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Hyperion | Catalog Number: 67913

The Brabant Ensemble continue their investigation into unknown jewels of the Low Countries Renaissance, researched by their director Stephen Rice and recorded with equal amounts of passion and erudition by the young singers of the group. Cipriano de Rore was and is principally known as a madrigal composer, and, as Stephen Rice writes, ‘blended the contrapuntal complexity of Low Countries polyphonic style with Italian poetic texts to create a newly expressive vernacular genre’. This recording represents something of a new departure in presenting some of the least well-known aspects of the output of a composer who is justly famous in other fields.

Palestrina: Missa de Beata Virgine, Missa Ave Maria - O'Donnell, Westminster Cathedral (2013)
EAC Rip | Flac (Tracks + cue + log) | 1 CD | Full Scans | 308 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Helios | Catalog Number: 55420

In this album we find Westminster Cathedral Choir at the peak of their powers, performing masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance. These two magnificent and contrasting settings perfectly demonstrate why Palestrina has been acknowledged as the master of this repertoire from his lifetime to the present day.

Poulenc - Gloria, Stabat Mater (Ozawa, Tanglewood Festival Chorus, Boston Symphony Orchestra; Battle) [1989]
EAC Rip | FLAC, TRACKS+CUE, LOG | Covers | 1cd, 224 MB
Classical | Label: DG | Catalog Number: 427 3042 7 | TT: 51’56

This is the simply a slpendid recording- well paced, energetic and in excellent sound. I have a suspicion that many people drawn to these works pay undo emphasis on the choir [or they are choir singers] and understandably get frustrating when the choir is not front and center in the musical proceedings. But what Poulenc wrote here does not emphasize the choir [he was a master instrumentalist after all!] so the orchestra should be more prominent at times. Ragardless, this is a great performance!

Charles Ives - Complete Music For String Quartet
Leipziger Streichquartett / Steffen Schleiermacher / Yeon-Hee Kwak / Ingo Goritzki
EAC+LOG+CUE | FLAC: 291 MB | Full Artwork: 122 MB | 5% Recovery Info
Label/Cat#: MDG "Gold" # 307 1143-2 | Country/Year: Germany 2002
Genre: Classical | Style: Early 20th Century

Charles Edward Ives (October 20, 1874 – May 19, 1954) was an American modernist composer. He is one of the first American composers of international renown, though his music was largely ignored during his life, and many of his works went unperformed for many years. Over time, he came to be regarded as an "American original". Ives combined the American popular and church-music traditions of his youth with European art music, and was among the first composers to engage in a systematic program of experimental music, with musical techniques including polytonality, polyrhythm, tone clusters, aleatoric elements, and quarter tones, foreshadowing many musical innovations of the 20th century...

Rachmaninov: Symphony No 2, Vocalise - Slatkin, Detroit Symphony (2010)
EAC Rip | Flac (Image + cue + log) | 1 CD | Full Scans | 258 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Naxos | Catalog Number: 8572458

In the wake of his First Symphony’s catastrophic première, Rachmaninov took a decade before commencing his Second, painstakingly revising it before conducting the triumphant première in 1908. Although haunted, like his First, by the Dies irae chant melody, the Second Symphony brims with Rachmaninov’s revitalised assurance as a composer, from its brooding opening to the vigorous grandeur of its conclusion.

Cuarteto Casals - Franz Joseph Haydn: Die sieben letzten Worte / The Seven Last Words of Chris (2014)
Classical | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 01:00:06 | 141 MB
Label: Harmonia Mundi | Tracks: 09 | Rls.date: 2014

Haydn wrote his Seven Last Words in 1786/87 for Good Friday devotions in Cádiz. The task of composing a purely instrumental ‘oratorio’ consisting of seven contemplative slow movements was by no means an easy one; but the outcome was a work of sublime nobility, which in Haydn’s own transcription for string quartet has enjoyed unfailing popularity ever since. Such a haunting work needs a certain amount of expressive power at times and a mournful reserve as well, a glimmer of hope and regretful contemplation. The Casals Quartet provides the proper balance that the music demands.

Rota: Symphony No. 3; Divertimento Concertante; Concerto Soiree - Noseda, Filarmonica ’900 Del Teatro Regio, Turin (2011)
EAC Rip | Flac (Tracks + cue + log) | 1 CD | Full Scans | 209 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Chandos | Catalog Number: 10669

Nino Rota is today best known as a composer of film music – and he probably always will be, or for at least as long as classics such as Fellini’s La Strada, La dolce vita and 8 1/2, Visconti’s The Leopard, and Coppola’s The Godfather remain in circulation. It is all too easy to forget Rota’s sizeable contributions to the concert hall and the theatre, but he also composed dozens of piano pieces, all kinds of chamber and orchestral music, numerous choral works, and no fewer than eleven operas and five ballets.

Hans Werner Henze - Complete Violin Concertos
Torsten Janicke, violin / Magdeburg Philharmonic Orchestra / Christian Ehwald
2x CD | EAC+LOG+CUE | FLAC: 331 MB | Full Artwork: 134 MB | 5% Recovery Info
Label/Cat#: MDG "Scene" # 601 1442-2 | Country/Year: Germany 2005
Genre: Classical | Style: Contemporary

"Hans Werner Henze has written three violin concertos so far, separated in his output by gaps of 23 and 26 years. As you'd expect, they are very different pieces stylistically, and hearing them in succession provides a revealing map of the trajectory Henze's evolution has followed in his orchestral music. However, it's the two most widely separated works here that have the most similarities, suggesting how, in some important respects over the last half-century, he has come full circle. (...) The result is arguably one of the strongest of Henze's works from the 1970s; certainly that is how it seems in this very impressively controlled performance from Torsten Janicke and the Magdeburg Philharmonic." ~The Guardian

Wolfgang Rihm - String Quartets, Vol. 3 (Minguet Quartett)
Classical | EAC: FLAC+Cue+Log | 1 Cd, Covers | 239 Mb
Label:ColLegno - Date:2005

Col Legno's third volume of Wolfgang Rihm's string quartets is, like its predecessors, an album of vigorous and challenging works that defy easy descriptions, resist stylistic associations, and put listeners on their mettle. If the fragmentary gestures, sudden digressions, and unconventional sounds (wood blocks, voices) of the String Quartet No. 7, "Veränderungen" (1985), are signs of Rihm's restless search for a music freed of expectations, then the .....
