IL CANTO DI MALAVITA - LA MUSICS DELLA MAFIA

IL CANTO DI MALAVITA - LA MUSICS DELLA MAFIA
ID: ARNR0903
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection:
World Music

format: Digipack with booklet 32 pages

After selling over 150,000 copies abroad, here it is at last in Italy: the controversial "cult" disc of the Mafia's music which traces the origins of the criminal tradition through a repertoire of lyrics from the past that express an old Mafia with a code of honour that no longer exists.

Mimmo Siclari is the scholar and musician who has sought out these old songs of the 'ndrangheta throughout Calabria and has been recording them since the Seventies.
This first volume of the trilogy, SONGS OF THE UNDERWORLD, produced by the Calabrian scholar and photographer, Francesco Sbano, is a collection of eighteen dramatic songs which relate stories of blood, honour and "omertà", showing the old code of the 'ndrangheta and the behaviour of the associates.

This disc is a very important historical document which encourages us to think about the roots of a phenomenon and the current situation in Calabria, as well as being a means of preserving our country's heritage of popular culture.
It also acts as a starting point for reflection upon the phenomenon of the Mafia and of the 'ndranghetta , because it is only by understanding the phenomenon, through to its most secret rites, that we can really free ourselves from it.

"Drink to your friends' health, drink up, because on the 5th December the most trendy and cool cd will be arriving in all the best music stores: "The song of the underworld" or "The music of the Mafia".
It's a real cult disc, produced with an anthropologist's flair by Francesco Sbano and Maximilian Dax: the cd has been a success in Germany and France where it has been on sale since last year and arrives in Italy in perfect time for the next Sanremo Music Festival directed by Tony Renis (...)"

Gerhard Oppitz - Japanese Piano Works

Gerhard Oppitz - Japanese Piano Works
ID: HAEN098631000
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection:
Instrumental

The program covers 70 years of Japanese classical music, beginning with a Piano Sonata by the German-trained Saburo Moroi. Moroi was Japan's first great symphonist and his musical language shows the influence of Hindemith. "Second Generation" composer Toru Takemitsu is arguably Japan's most famous composer. Takemitsu composed music in nearly every style, from experimental electronic pieces to film scores and even lounge jazz songs.His best works are characterized by a successful blending of Japanese aesthetics with western compositional techniques. The music of the Post War generation is represented by works from three of Japan's most popular living composers. Shin-Ichiro Ikebe is best know for his many soundtracks and film scores for the director Akira Kurosawa and the popular Miyazaki anime movies, while composer Akira Nishimura has consciously sought to create a distinctive Pan-Asian musical language, bringing together aspects of the aesthetic, spiritual and philosophic traditions from many different cultures. Keiko Fujiie, the youngest composer represented in this recital is no doubt familiar to guitarists around the world. She has composed many popular works for performance by her husband, the phenomenal guitar virtuoso Kazuhito Yamashita. This is an extraordinary recital, beautifully performed by Oppitz and an invaluable documentation of a still-neglected area of the 20th century piano repertoire.

Michael Nyman- VertovSounds - A Sixth Part of the World, The Eleventh Year- The Composers Cut Series - Vol.4

Michael Nyman- VertovSounds - A Sixth Part of the World, The Eleventh Year- The Composers Cut Series - Vol.4
ID: MNRCD118
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Film Music

Michael Nyman has now completed scores for the three major films that the pioneering Soviet filmmaker Dziga Vertov made in the late 1920s. To ‘Man with a Movie Camera’ he has added ‘The Eleventh Year’ and ‘A Sixth Part of the World’ and as a unique experiment for MN Records he has created a new Michael Nyman Band work - by making a montage of material from both of the soundtracks into a single, continuous piece which runs for 77 minutes.
I wrote the score for Man with a Movie Camera in 2002 and now, with A Sixth Part of the World and The Eleventh Year, I am in the privileged position of having written soundtracks for the three major films that Dziga Vertov made at the end of the 1920s and on which his reputation is based in the west. In the same way as I avoided reading Vertov’s background notes to the music he designated for Man with a Movie Camera when I wrote my score, so with A Sixth Part and The Eleventh Year research was deliberately limited and most of my interest seemed to focus on the similarities and differences between those two films and Man with a Movie Camera (and had me musing on an interesting trio of self-borrowers -Handel, Laurence Sterne and Vertov, with whom I have a strong affinity!) My reaction was to Vertov’s images and the process of their organisation - to the two interrelated, but dissimilar worlds that he presented and promoted in these two films.
Subsequent research, with the help of Barbara Wurm and other archivists from the Austrian Film Institute (which has released a DVD of the two films with the new soundtracks), has allowed me to appreciate differently the content and the context (both cinematic and political) of these two films. And my discovery of the book ? Lines of Resistance: Dziga Vertov and the Twenties, edited by Yuri Tsivian (2004) has thrown up some wonderful supplementary texts like the critic Izmail Urazov's appraisal of A Sixth Part of the World. He writes very powerfully about the musicality of Vertov’s film, which instinctively had influenced my score:

‘Vertov edits sequences like a composer’

That is the cause of the emotion which the film arouses. You cannot relate it; there is no plot, no intensification of the action, but there is an intensification of emotion. Like in music. That is where the emotion comes from. Vertov leads the 'melody', returning to it, playing with dissonances, using the exoticism of the polar snows and the burning hot sands, almost like something beyond sense, almost like a composer using the texture of the sounds.

And within Vertov’s sequences there is a rhythm, with which he infects the viewer: 'a Negress with a child on her back, hammering into your consciousness the tempo and rhythm of the montage of dancing legs, linked to the rhythm of a dance, of the movement of machines...' (Tsivian, p 187)

VERTOV SOUNDS represents a very different approach to the way of processing a soundtrack album: since the music for both films is sectional but continuous and, like Vertov, constantly refers back on itself, there are no ?named tracks' that can be separated out in the way that, say, ?Chasing Sheep is Best Left to Shepherds' from The Draughtsman's Contract has become an independent concert work. So the music for the films is presented as a non-stop montage of alternating sequences (sometimes quite complex in themselves) from each film.

Michael Nyman - McAlmont and Nyman - The Glare

Michael Nyman - McAlmont and Nyman - The Glare
ID: MNRCD116
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection:
World Music
Subcollection: Vocal and Piano

For 'The Glare', McAlmont selected various Nyman compositions and turned to world news for inspiration. These new songs, written in the first person, draw on a variety of subjects from 21st century piracy (Going to America), lothario world leaders (In Rai Don Giovanni) drug mules (In Laos) and banking errors (Take the money and Run). David McAlmont's exquisite voice has enthralled soul and jazz fans both as a solo artist and as one half of the hit-making duo McAlmont and Butler ''One day he will open his mouth and a cathedral will fall out'' Melody Maker. Michael Nyman is one of the UK's most prestigious and innovative composers whose work reached its widest audience through his film scores for The Piano, Greenaway's The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover and The Draughtsman's Contract (available on MN Records)


Michael Nyman and David McAlmont first met at the Freud Museum in London in the summer of 2000. They had both been invited to the launch of Nose Book: Representations of the Nose in Literature and the Arts by the author Victoria De Rijke. David had been a student of Victoria’s at Middlesex Polytechnic and the score of Michael's Nose-List Song (1985) was included in the book.


Michael and David talked and discovered that they were signed to the same record label, Virgin, at the time. Years before, David had become 'utterly entranced' by Nyman's soundtrack to Peter Greenaway’s film The Cook, the Thief, his Wife and her Lover and soon after he acquired the box set of Nyman's soundtracks became a huge fan.

In the years following the Nose/ Freud meeting it was often mentioned on the grapevine that Michael might be interested in working with David but this was all hearsay until 2007 when David, in a state of creative frustration, decided to join Facebook. Nyman contacted him within a week. They recollected their first encounter and quickly began plotting a collaboration.

Michael mentioned that he was totally unable to write his own song texts and David realised that he had become bored with 'the navel-gazing futility of writing love songs about his own feelings' and at 40 wanted to create something more worthwhile with his lyric writing

At this point Géricault’s painting The Raft of the Medusa emerged as a subject of interest to both musicians as David indicated that he had become fascinated with the life of the 19th century French painter - especially his determination to create documentary canvases based on contemporary life: battle-field injury, asylum inmates and shipwreck memoirs.

But this project was soon replaced by the current project where David wrote new songs based on contemporary news stories over pre-existing Nyman compositions. McAlmont's subject matter explores pertinent subjects as varied as 21st century piracy (Going to America), trafficked prostitution in Europe (City of Turin), sexually-charged world leaders (In Rai Don Giovanni), assisted suicide (Friendly Fire), reality television (The Glare), African orphan migration (Fever Sticks and Bones), banking errors (Take the Money and Run)and drug mules (In Laos).

David felt strongly that the songs were most effective if written from the first person point of view of the individual characters discovered in the researched reports to create an emotional engagement with the subjects that is lost by the time their stories emerge in the glare of the 24 hour news media. This process of course caused initial concern for McAlmont because he was taking already brilliant compositions, adding to and adjusting them. But fortunately, Michael Nyman was delighted with the result.

The guitar has always been the outstanding vehicle for Latin American music. Some composers stand out as exceptional and Astor Piazzolla is certainly Argentina’s most celebrated composer. The Five Pieces were written for Roberto Aussel and this is the definitive recording of his most important work for the guitar.

Roberto Aussel is Argentina’s most famous guitarist. His reputation as a leading figure in the guitar scene was cemented in 1980 when Astor Piazzolla composed and dedicated his ‘Five pieces’ to the young virtuoso.

REPERTOIRE Astor Piazzolla: Universally regarded as the most important exponent of the New Tango. Atahualpa Yupanqui: was without doubt the greatest exponent of Argentinean folk music. Hector Ayala: Another important and influential figure in the Argentinean folk music tradition. Antonio Lauro: Venezuela’s leading guitar composers.
