J. C. BACH: SIX SONATAS OP. 5 Brilliant Classics
Nagrania muzyczneMuzyka poważna
The genius of Johann Sebastian Bach often overshadows the achievements of his four prodigiously talented sons, all of whom played a crucial role in further advancing music?s development during the 18th century. Johann Christian, the youngest, was indeed among the most pivotal composers of his day, his move to Italy in 1755 precipitating a noticeable change in style that, known as the galant, looked forward to the soon-to-emerge Classical period. In 1762 the composer moved to London, where he soon acquired the title ?English Bach?. Among his admirers was Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who studied and later arranged a number of the German maestro?s works.Something of a keyboard virtuoso, J.C. Bach was the first to champion the newly invented fortepiano in concert, and his set of Six Sonatas Op.5 (1766) ? the subject of this engaging release ? was the first publication to mention both the fortepiano and harpsichord as performance options on the title page. Clearly the composer wanted to showcase his multi-faceted skills in the opus; the works not only grow in scope as the collection progresses, but also display the widest possible range of compositional manners and characters. From the singing galant style of the early numbers to the grand Baroque fugue in the last, French-oriented, sonata ? a clear allusion to the past, but a ?modern? take in view of the right hand?s countless doubled thirds ? this collection is packed full of virtuosity, poise and bravura ? a set truly befitting of a composer who would later became music master to the English royal family.At hand to perform this delightful collection is one of today?s leading fortepianists, renowned Dutch keyboardist Bart van Oort. The set is a welcome follow-up to van Oort?s previous recording for Brilliant Classics ? Mozart?s Complete Keyboard Music (94198) ? giving voice to a composer who was instrumental in bringing the fortepiano to public attention. More J.C. Bach is in the Brilliant Classics pipeline, too, with van Oort?s recording of Six Sonatas Op.17 set for release in February 2014.Other information:- Recorded 8 February & 24 June 2013, Capuchin Monastery, Velp, The Netherlands.- Johann Christian Bach, the youngest son of the great Johann Sebastian, went into history as the ?English Bach?. He became one of the most important musicians and composers in London the 2nd half of the 18th century, ultimately gaining the desirable post of music master of the Queen.- Johann Christian was the embodiment of the ?Galante Stil?, graceful, tuneful and brilliant music composed to entertain and please. Mozart was a great admirer of him, and transcribed some of his sonatas as mini piano concertos.- Johann Christian introduced the fortepiano as the new instrument ?en vogue?, rather than the old fashioned harpsichord.- Bart van Oort, a specialist on the fortepiano with an international reputation, plays these sonatas with scintillating clearness and charm, on a copy of a Walther fortepiano from 1795.- Contains excellent liner notes written by musicologist Sylvia Berry.

Table Talk Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Table Talk: Essays on Men and Manners The first edition was published in two 8vo volumes, the first volume in 1821 with the following title-page: 'Table-Talk; or, Original Essays. By William Hazlitt. London: John Warren, Old Bond-Street 1821'; the second volume in 1822 with the following title-page: 'Table-Talk; or, Original Essays. By William Hazlitt. Vol. 11. London: Printed for Henry Colburn and Co. 1822.' Both volumes were printed by Thomas Davison, Whitefriars. The first volume contained the following Advertisement: 'It may be proper to observe, that the Essays "On the Pleasure of Painting" and "On the Ignorance of the Learned," in this Volume, have already appeared in periodical publications.' The second volume contained a list of 'errata.' The second edition appeared in 1824 in two 8vo volumes. The title-page ran as follows: 'Table-Talk, or Original Essays on Men and Manners. Second Edition. London: Printed for Henry Colburn, New Burlington Street. 1824.' The volumes were printed by J. Nichols and Son, 25 Parliament Street. This edition, apparently a mere reprint of the first edition, is here reprinted verbatim except that the mistakes referred to in the 'errata' of the first edition have been corrected. In 1825 two 8vo volumes appeared in Paris (A. & W. Galignani) entitled, Table-Talk: or Original Essays, By William Hazlitt.' This edition omitted several of the essays included in the English editions of Table-Talk, and included several papers which were afterwards published in England in The Plain Speaker. An Advertisement (see notes to this volume) was prefixed to Vol 1. In the third edition (2 vols. foolscap 8vo 1845) entitled 'Table-Talk: Original Essays on Men and Manners. By William Hazlitt. Edited by his Son. London: C. Templeman, 6, Great Portland Street,' some essays were omitted, the order of the essays was altered, and two essays, 'On Travelling Abroad' and 'On the Spirit of Controversy,' were added. The fourth edition (1857-1861) is a reprint or a re-issue of the third. In the fifth edition (1 volume 8vo, 1869, Bell & Daldy), edited by Mr. William Carew Hazlitt, the text and arrangement of the first two editions are restored, but the essays are divided into three Series. In a later edition edited by Mr. Hazlitt (1 vol. 8vo Bohn's Library, 1891) the essays are arranged continuously.

Henry James - Outcry New York Review of Books Classics
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
The Outcry, Henry James's final novel, is an effervescent comedy of money and manners. Breckenridge Bender, a very rich American with a distinct resemblance to J.P. Morgan, arrives in England with the purpose of acquiring some very great art; he is directed to Dedborough, the estate of the debt-ridden Lord Theign. But plutocrat and aristocrat come into unexpected conflict when a young connoisseur, out to establish his own reputation, declares a prize painting from the lord's collection to be in fact an even rarer, and pricier, work than had been thought. A popular success in its own day, but long unavailable since and now almost unknown, The Outcry is one of the most surprising and amusing of James's works. Here he explores questions of privilege and initiative, repute and honor, high art and base calculation, revisiting some of his favorite themes with a deft and winning touch.

Roberts, Cyrus Smith, Unorthodox Engineers, John Renwick, Daedalus. Excerpt: Charles Irving "Chuck" Bartowski is the main and titular character of the American fiction television show Chuck on NBC. He is portrayed by Zachary Levi. At the outset of the show, Chuck Bartowski is presented as a twenty something underachiever who lives in the Echo Park Section of Los Angeles, California and works at a dead end job at the Burbank Buy More in its Nerd Herd division (a fictionalized Geek Squad). Chuck's life stalled after his college roommate, Bryce Larkin, planted test answers under Chuck's bed and then reported him to the officials, which led to Chuck's expulsion from Stanford University (where he was a scholarship student) in 2003 - only twelve credits shy of completing his bachelor's degree. For a long time, Chuck hated Bryce for his betrayal, but he later learns that Bryce got him expelled to protect him from being recruited into the CIA because he knew Chuck wouldn't survive in the field. He also lost his college girlfriend, Jill Roberts (Jordana Brewster). Following his expulsion, Chuck moved in with his sister and began working at the Burbank, California branch of Buy More. At some point over the next five years Chuck becomes the Nerd Herd supervisor. That's his job at the time of the pilot, when the viewers are introduced to the key people in Chuck's current life: his older sister, Eleanor Fay "Ellie" Bartowski, M.D. (Sarah Lancaster), her live-in boyfriend, Devon "Captain Awesome" Woodcomb (Ryan McPartlin) and Chuck's best friend since childhood, Morgan Grimes. Very little else is known about his family. His mother left when Chuck was in the fifth grade and his father was "never really around" even before he also left (roughly eleven years ago), so Chuck and Ellie increasingly had to fend for themselves. On his birthday in 2007, Chuck opens an email from Bryce Larkin that causes Chuck to download into his brain the full contents of a CIA/NSA supercomputer known as the Intersect, which has served as a database for their combined collected i

Along with his friend, Sir Philip Sidney, Bruno travels to Plymouth on the Queen's behalf. There, they meet Sir Francis Drake, who is preparing to launch a daring expedition against the Spanish, which could turn the tide of war. Unbeknownst to Bruno, however, Sidney plans to stowaway with Drake's fleet and return a hero - dragging Bruno with him to the New World. But when a murder occurs aboard Drake's own ship, fear and suspicion grip the fleet and threaten to abort the expedition before it begins. Navigating the jealousies and loyalties of the crew, Bruno learns that someone with a deadly grudge is shadowing his investigation. Tracking the killer through Plymouth's menacing backstreets, he uncovers some of the darkest secrets the city is harbouring. Failure will come at the highest cost - not just for Bruno, but all of England...

Powieści i opowiadania
In The Red Pony, John Steinbeck's celebration of the spirit and courage of adolescence, we meet Jody Tiflin. Like most ten-year-old boys, Jody feels the urge for rebellion as well as the need to be loved. In these stories, Jody begins to learn about adulthood -- its pains, its responsibilities and its problems -- through the acceptance of his father's gifts. First he is given a red pony and later he is promised the colt of a bay mare. But both these gifts bring tragedy as well as joy, and Jody not only learns some harsh lessons about life (and death), but is also made painfully aware of the fallibility of adults.
