The sole, eponymous album of this great progressive band was released in May 1970 by the Danish Sonet Records as a pressing of just 1000 copies. The music of Pan was an ambitious mixture of heavy rock sounds with folk, jazz and classical music and was characterized by great English (and some French) vocals from Robert Lelievre (who sadly committed suicide in 1973), fluid tasteful guitar parts, atmospheric Hammond phrases and loose, but solid rhythm section. This tightly arranged and beautifully produced LP is now regarded as one of the very best rock albums ever recorded in Denmark.

"The process of writing any piece of music really is one of discovery and the feeling I always have is that what I’m setting myself to write already exists and that what I have to do is unveil it, discover it". This characterisation by Daniel Jones of the creative process as one of exploration and excavation seems appropriate for a composer whose scores have a powerful sense of rightness and inevitability. His lifelong dedication to music meant that he was unwilling to compromise by diluting it with other work, such as teaching. When he was mischievously accused of never having had a proper job, his response was to tap his manuscript and reply, "This is a proper job". In fact he undertook a wide variety of roles during his long life, as he once wryly observed: "my career has been a very complicated one. As a matter of fact, it’s a pity I was not divided into several people".

Gilda (Miriam Alejandra Bianchi) was an Argentine singer and songwriter. She was the most successful tropical singer of the 90's in Argentina. Gilda started getting involved in music while organizing festivals at a Catholic school. After meeting musician Tito Giménez, the teacher became a backup singer, joining a band called la Barra and soon participating in a second project named Crema Americana. In 1993, Giménez convinced her to start a solo career, recording De Corazón A Corazón after signing up to local label Magenta. The following year, "La Única" featuring the hit "Corazón Herido" and "La Puerta" was released. In 1995, Pasito A Pasito came out, getting the hit and one of her most popular songs "No Me Arrepiento De Este Amor."

The most popular folk group of the 1960s, Peter, Paul and Mary in later decades have also proved themselves to be among the most durable music acts in history. Their longevity dwarfs that of the Weavers, while the fact that the trio continues to be associated with a major record label (Warner Bros.) after decades in the business sets them apart from rivals like the Kingston Trio and the Brothers Four. Then again, perhaps it isn't so surprising – Peter, Paul and Mary's roots run deeper than almost any other folk act one might care to name, while their appeal crosses audience lines that other acts couldn't (and can't) even approach.

Francoise Groben played with notable orchestras such as the Saint Petersburg Philharmonic, the Japan Philharmonic and the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, the Chamber Orchestra of Georgia and the Zurich Chamber Orchestra under conductors of the calibre of Leopold Hager, Daniel Harding, Mstislav Rostropovich and Yevgeny Svetlanov. She died in Luxembourg, quite unexpectedly, on May 28, 2011. The recordings collected here illustrate the entire spectrum of Françoise Groben's artistic interests, demonstrating that she was not only a leading soloist but also a gifted and coveted chamber musician who regularly included pieces by Luxembourg composers in her programmes and was strongly committed to contemporary female composers.

During his short life Don Banks (1923–80) enjoyed a reputation as the leading modernist among Australian composers. Studies with Mátyás Seiber, Milton Babbitt and, especially, Luigi Dallapiccola helped refine his serial technique, but his music never retreated into academic abstraction, as this recital of chamber and vocal works demonstrates: it retained a keen sense of drama, an ear for atmosphere, a rather angular lyricism and, occasionally, a touch of humour.

The Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and its Music and Artistic Director Jonathan Nott continue their acclaimed series of 20th-century masterpieces on PENTATONE, together with star pianist Francesco Piemontesi, presenting piano concertos by Ravel and Schoenberg alongside Messiaen’s Oiseaux exotiques. Each of these composers redefined 20th-century music in a highly personal way, and the works recorded here share a connection to the United States which one would perhaps not expect right away from these European master composers. While Ravel and Schoenberg’s piano concertos provide the most original and colourful 20th-century contributions to this genre, Messiaen employs a similar scoring to express his profound reverence for nature in Oiseaux exotiques. These challenging and multifarious scores fit Piemontesi, Nott and the orchestra like a glove.

Francesco Corti and il pomo d’oro continue their acclaimed series of Bach harpsichord concertos, now moving to the works for two harpsichords, BWV 1060-1062, together with Andrea Buccarella. Compared to the previous two instalments, the accompanying ensemble is small, allowing for maximal transparency and focus on the soloists. The greatest discographic asset of this album is Corti’s arrangement of Bach’s unfinished concerto for harpsichord, oboe and strings in D Minor, BWV 1059. In his extensive contribution to the booklet, Corti explains why and how he used parts of Cantata BWV 35 to complete the score. Emmanuel Laporte performs the solo oboe.

Weichenberger certainly must have had a certain reputation. In the New Groves, Wolfgang Botticher writes that he was held in high esteem "although he was only an amateur". The more recent perspective does not follow this disparagement, with good reason. Considering the beautifuI works by these composers the idea of dilettantism is far from the truth. We find first class compositions. Weichenberger' s compositions touched especially because of their beauty and naturalness.

With his album, …Before The Beginning, Anthony Gomes offers a powerful collection of unplugged compositions, promising to be his most compelling work to date. Anthony delivers again in a very different way in this acoustic set! This is not the high flying electric blues a lot of AG fans have come to expect instead AG definitely brings us back to old style blues with a touch of Gospel thrown in. A very well thought out concept CD with haunting lyrics and of course Anthony's signature guitar sound!
