One twentieth-century composer that trod his own path decisively, perhaps more than any other, is Gottfried von Einem. Since his breakthrough with the premiere of his opera Dantons Tod ('The Death of Danton') at the Salzburg Festival in 1947, through to the composer’s death in 1996, many of his works have been performed on the international music stage, as recordings featuring the likes of Böhm, Karajan and George Szell on Orfeo testify. Now, the label is delighted to mark the 100th anniversary of the composer's birth by releasing a retrospective of von Einem’s work featuring the very best performers of today.

History is re-claimed with two significant archive recordings, newly restored and re-mastered, by the BBC Symphony Orchestra of a master British symphonist in his early prime on Somm Céleste. The first appearance on disc of Edmund Rubbra conducting the wartime premiere of his own Fourth Symphony (taken from an off-air recording of the live broadcast) is coupled with a live 1954 BBC radio broadcast – considered ‘quite stupendous’ by the composer – of the Second Symphony conducted by the work’s dedicatee, Sir Adrian Boult. On the strength of his first four symphonies, the musicologist and composer Arthur Hutchings described Rubbra as ‘first and foremost, a symphonist’.

Ernst von Dohnanyi’s piano works are influenced by the late romantic era, with different character pieces woven together as a cycle like the late piano works of Brahms. Dohnanyi first made his mark on the music scene as a pianist. He made his debut in Berlin in 1897 and was at once recognized as an artist of extremely high merit. Similar success followed in Vienna, and then he toured Europe. After he began composing, the piano was his natural instrument to write for.

Mauro Giuliani is one of the most important figures within the history of the guitar. After spending his early years in Bisceglie, Barletta and Trieste, he moved to Vienna in 1806, instantly becoming an integral part of the prestigious musical circles within the city. He was an esteemed friend of, amongst others, Beethoven, Haydn and almost certainly Schubert, and a partner in the concert performances of virtuosos such as Hummel, Moscheles and Mayseder. The works presented on this release are performed in a historically sensitive manner, and combine the two musical genres to which Giuliani devoted his greatest efforts: vocal chamber music, and, to a greater degree, the solo guitar repertoire.

Label: Tactus

Taking advantage of two great historical instruments (the Giacomo Bazzani e Figli, 1832, organ of San Lorenzo in Cavazzana (RO) church, and the Gaetano Callido 1797, organ of the Beata Vergine del Rosario in Polesella (RO) church), in this double CD organist Alessandro Perin offers a significant collection of the works by the Paduan composer Gaetano Valeri, a leading exponent of the late eighteenth century Italian keyboard music scene. Remaining anchored to the 'galante' style, Valeri’s sonatas are characterised by great inventiveness, singability, rhythmic variety and formal elegance, and naturally enhance the variegated tonal characteristics of the Italian seventeenth-century organs. The release also features Roberto Loreggian, performing on the world premiere recording of the two four-hands works, Ouverture ridotta a quattro mani and Suonata a quattro mani.

Sibling act the Harden Trio was basically a one hit wonder, but they spent many years at the Grand Ole Opry. Robbie, Arleen, and Bobby Harden were all born in England, Arkansas, an area of the Ozarks noted for its rich musical heritage. They teamed as teens and performed locally, first gaining professional notice when they joined Barnyard Frolics in Little Rock. They became popular and joined the Ozark Mountain Jubilee in Springfield, Missouri, and Louisiana Hayride. Their success led them to Nashville, where they appeared on WSM's Opry Almanac.

If everyone on the northwest side of Chicago who claims to have hung out with the Buckinghams during their heyday had faithfully bought all their releases, the rock group might have sold more records than the Beatles. Popular attractions while still in high school, the quintet changed its name from the Pulsations to the Buckinghams to reflect the British Invasion craze and signed with Chicago's USA Records in 1966. Backing Dennis Tufano's buoyant lead vocals with prominent harmonies and punchy soul-styled brass, the group came across the wistful "Kind of a Drag," and in short order, the Buckinghams had a million-selling pop chart-topper on their hands. They quickly graduated to recording for Columbia.

In many ways, Rod Picott is living the dream. Releasing his first album in 2001 – when he was already into his mid-30s – the Nashville based singer/songwriter began a second career. He has made up for lost time since. “Out Past The Wires” is not only his 10th studio album since then (we think) but a massive 22 song effort, a double album no less. If the Long Player is dead as the makers of taste like to claim, then evidently such nonsense hasn’t reached Picott.

Born in South Africa in 1939, flugelhorn, trumpet, and cornet virtuoso Hugh Masekela was inspired by American jazz as a young boy and served an extensive apprenticeship with some of his homeland's musical giants. In 1959, he and pianist Dollar Brand (aka Abdullah Ibrahim) formed the legendary Jazz Epistles, but after a brutal government crackdown on political opposition, Masekela and a host of other artists and intellectuals fled the country. A long but fruitful period followed, during which he worked with Yehudi Menuhin, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Harry Belefonte, Miriam Makeba (his ex-wife), Herb Alpert, and Paul Simon, consolidating his reputation abroad.

"We keep it 100 real, official how we deal/We could bang pistols all night if it feel/Reclining in the black GT, I hate to see me shining/Black started with rockstar, we DB-9ining," Starr spits on the track, before offering to "put a price on your head like a New York fitted." "I'ma Fuckin Rockstar" is the first single from Black Rock, an album Fredro says was inspired by a cut Onyx did back in the 1990s. "The inspiration for the album came from the song 'Judgement Night' we did for the Judgment Night movie soundtrack, hip-hop meets rock and roll.
