Two generations. Two styles. Two voices. And an album in common… For about twenty years, crooner Tony Bennett and singer and pianist Diana Krall had produced a few duos here and there, but never an entire album. With this Love Is Here To Stay, they jumped right in and involved another five-star tandem in their enchanted parenthesis of refined vocal jazz: George and Ira Gershwin. They went digging through the vast repertoire of the most famous brothers of 20th American popular music to create this album that seems from another time, produced with the trio of impeccable pianist Bill Charlap, Peter Washington on the double bass and Kenny Washington on drums…

Without question, the Byrds were one of the great bands of the ’60s and one of the few American bands of their time to continually turn out inventive, compelling albums. As they were recording a series of fine records, they turned out a number of classic singles that unquestionably defined their era. The Byrds’ Greatest Hits does an excellent job of chronicling the peak years of their popularity before they went country-rock on 1968’s Sweetheart of the Rodeo. Apart from the minor hits “It Won’t Be Wrong,” “Set You Free This Time,” and “Have You Seen Her Face,” all of the group’s hit singles – from 1965’s “Mr. Tambourine Man” to 1967’s “My Back Pages” – are included: “All I Really Want to Do,” “Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is a Season),” “Eight Miles High,” “5D (Fifth Dimension),” “Mr. Spaceman,” and “So You Want to Be a Rock N’ Roll Star.” Yes, some great songs were left behind on the albums, but important cuts like “I’ll Feel a Whole Lot Better,” “The Bells of Rhymney,” and “Chimes of Freedom” are added, making this pretty close to a definitive single-disc summary of the Byrds’ prime.

Gyorgy Vashegyi – Haydn – Symphonies Nos. 6-8 (2020) [Official Digital Download 24bit/48kHz]

György Vashegyi – Haydn – Symphonies Nos. 6-8 (2020)
FLAC (tracks) 24 bit/48 kHz | Time – 01:11:30 minutes | 753 MB | Genre: Classical
Studio Masters, Official Digital Download | Digital Booklet, Front Cover | © Accent

founded in 1761, the year Joseph Haydn entered the service of the Esterházy family, for which he would remain for more than thirty years, Symphonies No. 6, 7 and 8 form a unique trilogy in the history of music and are, according to musicologist Marc Vignal, Haydn’s first masterpieces in this field, and probably even for the genre of the symphony in general.

It must be said that Haydn had put all his science and know-how into it, at the time when he was still on trial with the prince, with an overwhelming specification that would give nightmares to all musicians today. In these three jewels of a concise and virtuoso writing, Haydn distributes solos to all the musicians of the orchestra, including the double bass and the bassoon, who are not accustomed to this kind of exercise. It is a festival of sound garlands, as found in the ancient Baroque “concerto grosso”, alternating with dark pages of a moving gravity.

The subtitles, the only ones given by Haydn himself to his symphonies, ” le Matin “, ” le Midi “, ” Le Soir “, were suggested to him and even commissioned by prince Paul Anton to describe an allegory of the “hours of the day” and, above all, of the three ages of life.
