In 1975, Dr. Richard Charles Haefner had it all—a Ph.D. from Penn State University, a prestigious job offer with UCLA and a thriving family business. Then it all came crashing down. Two boys who worked for Haefner accused him of sexual molestation, but allegations of police brutality, prosecutorial misconduct, bribery and corruption soon overshadowed what seemed like an “open-and-shut-case,” ultimately resulting in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s amending state law.

Today the ethical and normative concerns of everyday citizens are all too often sidelined from the study of political and social issues, driven out by an effort to create a more “scientific” study.

Elizabeth I in Donizetti’s Roberto Devereux was, Beverly Sills has said, the role that took 10 years off her career, and indeed, it’s a fearsome undertaking. The very long role is composed over a slightly larger than two-octave span, and there are forte passages at both ends, both in ensembles and alone, and the sheer number of notes the character has to get out is awe-inspiring. Emotionally, too, the part is ripping: The elderly Elizabeth, in love with the Earl of Essex, who in turn loves Sara, the Duchess of Nottingham (forget real English history), is a ferocious monarch, comfortable and powerful only when ruling, and in private, a shattered woman, filled with vulnerabilities. Sills’ voice was at its pristine best in 1969, when this was recorded, before she sang it on stage. She is in absolute control of every resource she ever had: accurate roulades, brutal chest tones, full-bodied high notes, the ability to express both rage and joy, an impeccable bel canto line, stupendous breath control.

The compositions herein are performed by two of the famed Charles Mingus Jazz Workshop groups and they are considered among his best recorded works. These 1954 recordings represent the grass roots from where all the innovative forms and expressions of tomorrows jazz conceived by Mingus really began. From then on, Mingus became the most influential composer and bassist of various generations in jazz history. After its first date, he said about the improvised interplay between every instrument: I feel that it is usually impossible to attempt such delicacies with musicians who do not enjoy the unusual freedom or understand the thought of the leading instrument. Teo Macero, John LaPorta, George Barrow and Mal Waldron, of course, are just as responsible as I am for the final construction.

Charles Earland is among the most consistent of organists, with nearly every one of his recordings on that instrument (as opposed to his interlude on synthesizers) being easily recommended to soul-jazz and hard bop collectors. For this CD, Earland heads a sextet also including trumpeter Virgil Jones (long an underrated player), Bill Easley on tenor, guitarist Bobby Broom, drummer Buddy Williams and occasionally Frank Colon on conga. Other than a throw-away version of the theme from Moonlighting, the mostly basic music on this set is rewarding, with Earland infusing the tunes with plenty of grease and funk.

Charles Nodier - Il bibliomane. L'amante dei libri
Italian | 2018 | 46 pages | ASIN: B07G66Q8XX | EPUB | 0,6 MB

Scritto intorno al 1830 da Charles Nodier (considerato da Calvino il capostipite della famiglia dei grandi scrittori-bibliotecari), Il bibliomane racconta la giornata di un bibliofilo tranquillo, in una Parigi assolata che ancora porta i segni dei drammi della rivoluzione di luglio. È l’ultima passeggiata di Monsieur Théodore, compiuta tra librai antiquari, editori e case d’aste, un cammino che con poche variazioni si potrebbe percorrere ancora oggi. L’amante dei libri, del 1841, accanto alle descrizioni del bibliofilo, delinea un futuro fosco per l’editoria: schiacciato sotto il peso dell’iperproduzione, il libro è destinato a morire. Profezie allarmate e allarmanti si mescolano ad aneddoti sul mondo del libro, tra curiosi tipi umani (tra cui il bibliofobo) e ritrovamenti avventurosi, secondo il principio per cui “meglio un libro raro che un buon libro”, in due scritti divertenti, leggeri e terribilmente pessimistici sulla sorte della lettura.
