Hayley Westenra - Pure (2003)

Hayley Westenra - Pure (2003)
Title: Hayley Westenra
Artist: Pure
Genre: Vocal
Label: Decca

Format: Image (flac+cue+log) or mp3/320kbps tracks
Quality: lossless
Size: flac 261mb / mp3 117mb

Description:
Comparisons with Charlotte Church are inevitable, yet 16-year-old New Zealand singer Hayley Westenra has her own distinctive sound. She has impeccably clear diction coupled with a gorgeous voice with a very wide range: her high notes in the Kate Bush hit "Wuthering Heights" are especially striking, and like Bush she is also a dancer, having performed with the Royal New Zealand Ballet. If there's a problem, it's that Pure doesn't have a focus to match Westenra's talent, the tracks spanning everything from "Amazing Grace" to a Maori lullaby ("Hine e Hine") to hybrid pieces adapted from Ravel ("Never Say Goodbye") and Vivaldi's Four Seasons ("River of Dreams"). Ultimately what this set does demonstrate is that whatever direction Westenra finally settles on, she has the ability to go to the very top. For now she is a young artist finding her way, and for many listeners the result is Pure magic. --Gary S Dalkin
Product Description

First international CD release from the New Zealand bred prodigy. On 'Pure' she explores the worlds of pop, traditional Maori choral singing, & gives a new freshness to well-known classical repertoire. 14 tracks including a bonus track on the audio CD, 'My Heart & I' which is unavailable on the US edition. The bonus VCD features three additional tracks, 'Who Painted The Moon Black?' (Video), 'Making of Pure' (Video), & 'I Dreamed A Dream' (Live). 17 tracks in all with a slipcase. Universal. 2003. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Description:
Maria João Pires and Deutsche Grammophon – the perfect match is still a wow!

Maria João Pires, widely recognized as one of the most brilliant pianists of the last forty years, celebrates her 20th anniversary as a Deutsche Grammophon exclusive recording artist with this 2-CD release devoted entirely to the works of Chopin, the artist's first new recording in over four years. Pires's affinity for Chopin has always been well-known to both critics and audiences; in fact, her interpretations are so beloved that her 1996 recording of Chopin's Nocturnes remains the best-selling solo piano recording of the past 20 years by a living Deutsche Grammophon artist. The works chosen were all composed during the last five years of Chopin's life and are the culmination of his artistry. Including a number of musical forms--from sonata to mazurka, waltz to nocturne--this expansive recital is a true treat. Available at a special price in a deluxe digi-pack.

Description:
A scintillating combination of edge-of-the-seat spontaneity and technical wizardry, Shlomo Mintz's 1981 traversal still reigns supreme. The Way he throws himself into the paralysing descending and (even more perilous) ascending thirds of No. 1 with a devil-may-care nonchalance still inspires incredulous head-shaking at the sheer effrontery of it all, while the velocity and miraculous left-hand co-ordination of No. 5 becomes increasingly more astonishing each time I hear it. If I could only take one version of these endlessly inventive miniatures to my desert island, this would be it.

Description:
Helene Grimaud presents her first-ever Bach recording! Once again, charismatic Helene Grimaud presents an album with an individual concept. Bach vs. Bach Transcribed brings together original keyboard works by the master with works by Bach arranged (transcribed) for the piano by pianist-composers of later generations: Busoni, Liszt & Rachmaninov. This is the first time that Hélène Grimaud has recorded Bach - a challenge for any musician. The repertoire includes the famous Well-Tempered Clavier II and the Concerto no. 1 in D minor, the latter performed with Grimaud's regular collaborators, the Kammerphilharmonie Bremen. Bach "Transcribed" features the Bach/Busoni version of the Chaconne in D minor, the Violin Partita in E major arranged for piano by Rachmaninov, and Liszt's version of the Prelude and Fugue in A minor. A landmark project in Grimaud's successful career, this recording is bound to be a best-seller.

Hilary Hahn - Mendelssohn & Shostakovich: Violin Concerto (2002)

Hilary Hahn - Mendelssohn & Shostakovich: Violin Concerto (2002)

Format: Image (flac+cue+log) or mp3/320kbps tracks
Quality: lossless
Size: flac 288mb / mp3 146mb

Description:
Though at first glance these two concertos seem an odd coupling, Hilary Hahn offers convincing reasons for pairing them in her scholarly but rather chatty program notes. For the listener, the most important one is her avowed love and affinity for the music, which speak through every note of her performance. At 22, Hahn has developed from an arresting teenage prodigy into a formidable violinist. Her technique is equal to all challenges and so effortless that one forgets about it. Her tone has the directness and intensity of a laser beam and the unblemished purity of fine-spun crystal. This carries over into her style: clear and straightforward, without fuss, external effects, or exaggeration--there is hardly a slide on the whole record. If her playing is rather cool, it's also noble and emotionally so genuine that she can make a popular warhorse like the Mendelssohn sound fresh and new. She takes few rhythmic liberties, but freely changes tempo for mood and expression: the second theme of the first movement is much slower than the rest. The Shostakovich, too, sounds new and different. A repertory staple of all great Russian violinists, it is usually played with a lush tone and unbridled emotionality. Hahn captures the work's bleak, lamentatious despair, the obsessiveness and sardonic irony, but her playing has the sort of fire that burns ice-blue rather than red-hot. It projects a sense of restraint, of pent-up tension and excitement that finally burst out in the cadenza. It is a riveting performance. The orchestra is very good, but often too loud in the Mendelssohn.

Description:
繼上一隻的《聆極物語》的成功後,雨林音樂製作中心再接再厲,推出《聆極物語2》,這個作為後續之作,無論是選曲還是製作都更加精緻。此諜不但歌唱得好,錄音更加好,專輯繼承以往那種位置明晰的錄音方式,每個聲部都有自己在空間中的“站位”,甚至有發撒友在聽他們唱歌的時候,連歌者的高度亦可“看”到,而且雨林的唱片一直都是走高質而不貴的策略,十分體貼國內發燒友,是絕對值得買的一張人聲靚碟。

[聆極物語2]帶來的驚喜,只是有增無減,首先CD封套的設計就相當吸引,今次的配搭跟第一輯有點兒分別,以一男兩女的組合來演繹十四首溫磬浪漫的動聽樂章,男主音許樂音腔純厚,兩位女主音為陳潔麗與黃韻,都是青燕子演唱組的成員,今次的組合更顯他們的個人技巧,音色的混合就不必懷疑了,他們的演繹,不但將原曲的美妙旋律盡顯發揮,難得的就系連副旋律都演繹得極為美妙,這種的配合,在傳統的民歌四部合唱中可以聽到,今均在流行歌曲都可以做到如此動聽,第一必定歸功於三位歌手高質素的演繹,另外值得一贊就是編曲的功勞,可以稱得上是[藝術與流行]的結晶品,這種配合國內同類型的編曲很多,確實有很多失敗之作,但是[聆極物語2]的編曲,完完全全見證出這種配合的美態,不但更加突出旋律的感染力,並且把這些簡單而熟悉的美樂更加藝術化,更難得的一點是這類歌唱風格非一般現今的歌手可以做到,有如此靚的聲喉並且擁有極高的音樂技巧,確實是具欣賞的一張靚碟!

Indeed, there were many who thought that it would take an event as cataclysmic as the one described in the album title to get these seminal '70s soft-rockers back together. But here they are, revisiting some of their most beloved tunes as well as four new ones, on this mostly live, largely acoustic disc. Frey, Henley, Walsh, Schmit, and Felder tackle iconic Eagles standards like "Hotel California," "Tequila Sunrise," "Take It Easy," "Desperado," and "Life in the Fast Lane" and new tunes like "Get Over It" and "Love Will Keep Us Alive" with the smoothly cocky assurance that originally made them icons. --Scott Schinder

Genre: Vocal/ Torch Songs/ Vocal Jazz/ Traditional Pop
Quality: MP3
Bitrate: 320 Kbps
Total Time: 01:46:27
Total Size: 251.05 MB

Description:
We've called them torch singers, divas, chanteuses, and the First Ladies of American Song. And as the contemporary, Grammy-bedecked ascent of Norah Jones (who appears here with Charlie Hunter) attests, these ladies who sing the blues continue to reinterpret a tradition rooted in the blues, yet steeped in songcraft that spans jazz, pop, and even rock. This double-disc, 26-track collection spans a half-century-plus and offers up not only a tantalizing introduction to legends and pioneers (including Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Della Reese, Etta James, Lena Horne) and an equally rich body of song standards, but also chronicles how an originally largely black heritage in effect became the pop mainstream in the '40s and '50s (and beyond) via the work of singers like Dinah Shore, Kay Starr, June Christy, Peggy Lee and Julie London. It's also a testament to how vital that legacy remains, with Jones' own Brazilian-inflected cover of Bryan Ferry's "More Than This" and Patricia Barber's spare, sultry '90s read of "The Thrill Is Gone" but two strong examples of the set's expansive scope. It's a compelling sampler and the best kind of musical appetizer: One that leaves you craving more.
