JP Marat - Charlotte Gainesbourgh - Rest - Released on April 17, 2017

French Actress and Singer Charlotte Gainesbourgh has just released one of my favorite albums of 2017. You've seen her films including Jane Eyre, Les Miserables, 21 Grams and Melancholia. Her latest collection of tracks, primarily in French, are lovely, innovative and artful. Is "Rest" the best album of the year ?

Nixon in China (English Language Opera) and Red Detachment of Women (Chinese Ballet)

Today we proffer the first act of the English Language Opera "Nixon in China" written by John Adams (libretto by Alice Goodman). This opera tells the story of Richard Nixon's trip to China in 1972 which helped reverse decades of hostility between our two nations. Later in the show we present "The Red Detachment of Women." This was the Chinese ballet/symphony/opera presented to Richard and Patricia Nixon during their visit. It tells the story of Wu, an oppressed female peasant who is beaten by her landlord and left for dead. Wu revives, escapes to the mountains and joins the "Red Detachment of Women" who return to overthrow the landlord and liberate her village. As the situation on the Korean peninsula deteriorates, these works are presented in the hope that listeners will reflect upon the hardship caused by national antagonisms and promote relationships of mutual trust and benefit, particularly with those with whom we disagree.

JP Marat - Classic Marat - Alexander Nevsky

This week we offer the soundtrack from the 1938 film entitled "Alexander Nevsky" directed by Sergei Eisenstein and scored by Sergei Prokofiev. This brilliant composition marries soaring choral with a deeply emotive orchestration. The film tells the story of a 13th Century invasion of Russia by the Teutonic Knights and their subsequent defeat by Prince Alexander Nevsky. In actual fact . . . coming immediately before WWII . . . it presages the Nazi Invasion of the Soviet Union and their subsequent rout.
