Depending on who you ask, this is either Nektar's greatest or worst album. As Albrighton explained later, it was the band's attempt to re-invent itself as someone else – like the Magical Mystery Tour. Old fans were appalled; but as the first album to get much airplay in the U.S., it brought in new fans who found it by far their most accessible work. Its progressive and funk elements are set around a demented circus theme, with the songs introduced by a loony Teutonic ringmaster. "That's Life," powered by chattering drums and a positively orgasmic Rickenbacker bass sound, is a standout of progressive rock showmanship. Delicate pieces like "Little Boy" and "Early Morning Clown" – where Albrighton uses rotating Leslie speakers to great effect – alternate with pub rockers like "Fidgety Queen" and the lumbering funk of "Nelly the Elephant." For new fans, this album is the place to start; and if they're willing to take it on its own terms, old fans might find a place in their heart for it too.

ROYAL HUNT will release their new studio album - "Dystopia. Part 2" - on October. The second and final part of the concept will again feature guest performers: Mats Leven (TSO, Skyblood, Vandenberg), Mark Boals (Y.J. Malmsteen, Ring of Fire, Royal Hunt), Henrik Brockman (Royal Hunt, Evil Masquerade, N´Tribe), Kenny Lubcke (Narita, Zoser Mez) and Alexandra Andersen (Royal Hunt, JSP). "Dystopia - Part 2" will be released in following formats: regular CD, various Deluxe editions/bundles and a gatefold, heavy vinyl double LP (availability date pending). ROYAL HUNT keep expanding their trademark sound. As the story which inspired the project - Ray Bradbury´s classic novel "Fahrenheit 451" - gets more intense towards the end, the music turns into more dynamic, heavier direction. Once again the guest singers add even more dramatic contrasts to an already cinematic yet solidly rocking soundscape. Simply a "must have" for any symfo/prog/power fan out there!

Raphael Wallfisch is one of the leading English cellists of his generation. His repertory is vast, taking in 19th century staples by Tchaikovsky, Brahms, and Dvorák, as well as 20th century standards by Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Respighi, and Barber. Yet he has also focused much attention on works by British composers, too, from Elgar, Delius, and Bax to Maxwell Davies, MacMillan, Simpson, and Tavener. Wallfisch has recorded extensively for many labels, including Chandos, Nimbus, and Naxos. Wallfisch was born in London on June 15, 1953.

5 years ago the Munich Radio Orchestra under Andrew Parrott performed Mozart's Singspiel 'Die verstellte Gärtnerin' - the rarely performed German version of 'La finta gardiniera', which can now finally be released on cpo. A top cast is assembled here: Sandrine Piau, Lydia Teuscher and Julian Prégardien, among others. When this opera was premiered, Mozart was 19 years old - an age at which most composers had not even begun. Wolfgang Amadeus' career as a musician - and as a composer - had been in full swing for several years, however. The work belongs to the genre of opera buffa, within which it follows the type of opera semiseria (half opera) popular at the time. Accordingly, in addition to buffa parts, there are also semi-seria parts and even a pure seria part. The music is of great richness. Mozart shows himself here as a true master of opera buffa. At the same time, the music already points beyond these to masterpieces such as Le nozze di Figaro and Don Giovanni. The first two acts of the opera contain large-scale, effective finales.

Obwohl beide Meister denselben Text verwenden, unterscheiden sich die Vertonungen sowohl in ihrer Art als auch in ihrer Form erheblich. Während Haydns Melodien den Inhalt mit einem Augenzwinkern und viel Feinsinnigkeit präsentieren, lädt Holzers Stück vor Lebensfreude und Musikalität sprühend zum Mittanzen ein. Joseph Haydns Lieder umfassen ein breites musikalisches Spektrum und sind für die Entwicklung der Gattung von unschätzbarem Wert: Sie stellen einen entscheidenden Beitrag zur Weiterentwicklung des Wiener Liedes bis hin zu Franz Schubert dar. Wie bei vielen Wiener Charakteristika vermischen sich verschiedenste Stilmittel: volkstümliche Elemente, Merkmale des Singspielliedes und des norddeutschen Liedes werden unter dem zusätzlichen Einfluss der italienischen Arie zu einer völlig neuen Musikgattung geformt. Die Verbindung zum neunzehnten Jahrhundert wird durch französische Lieder hergestellt, die erstmals 1810 von dem italienischen Gitarrenvirtuosen Mauro Giuliani in Wien ausgegeben wurden. Für dieses Projekt wurde ein historisches Streichinstrument gewählt, um ein noch größeres Gefühl der Intimität zu erzeugen.

Schoenberg’s famous Verklärte Nacht (Transfigured Night), inspired by Richard Dehmel’s poem in which a woman announces to her companion that she is pregnant by another man, is presented here in its version for piano trio by Eduard Steuermann: ‘This brilliant pianist, the creator of many of Schoenberg’s pieces, brings the story to life by entrusting the dialogue between the man and the woman to cello and violin alone’, says Thomas Dieltjens, pianist of the group Het Collectief. Anton Webern made a transcription of Schoenberg’s Kammersymphonie op.9 in 1923 for the same forces as Pierrot Lunaire. This miniature orchestra, consisting of just two wind instruments (flute, clarinet), two string instruments (violin, cello) and a piano, ‘preserves great clarity in the polyphonic line’. Het Collectif asked the young composer Tim Mulleman to transcribe for the same ensemble the Piano Sonata op.1 of Alban Berg, who himself made arrangements of some of his own works, including the famous Adagio from his Kammerkonzert, also presented in this programme.

This is the third and final instalment of the Well-Tempered Consort series (5 Diapasons, Gramophone Editor’s Choice, BBC Music Magazine Chamber Choice). In this programme devised by its director Laurence Dreyfus, the viol consort Phantasm continues to shine new light on the fugues from Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier interspersed with some of the composer’s most harmonically adventurous experiments from the Clavierübung III. This polyphonic feast also includes two works from the Inventions and Sinfonias as well as the Fantasia in G major BWV 572, or Pièce d’orgue as it is sometimes called, which boasts an extraordinary closing pedal point. A fitting end to a remarkable journey!

While Lajos Lencses may not be widely known to the average classical concertgoer or record buyer, he is generally considered one of the most talented oboists in Europe. He has appeared on over 30 recordings and has actively promoted contemporary music for the oboe. Lencses is not only a virtuoso oboist but is equally talented on the oboe d'amore and English horn. While he has attained nearly the level of acclaim of iconic oboist Heinz Holliger, Lencses has chosen to balance his career as a soloist by remaining the first chair oboist in the Stuttgart Radio Orchestra. His repertory is amazingly broad, taking in works by J.S. Bach, Vivaldi, Cimarosa, Handel, Rosetti, Mozart, Dittersdorf, Bellini, Koechlin, Nielsen, Françaix, Martinu, and contemporary Hungarian composers Sandor Balassa, Frigyes Hidas, and Josef Soproni. Stylistically, he is known for his ingratiating tone, lyrical sensibilities, and brilliant technique. Lencses has recorded for a variety of labels, including Hänssler Classics, Hungaroton, MD&G, Capriccio, CPO, and Bayer.

Legendary singer Graham Bonnet and ANTHEM team up for a short noticed studio jam to record 8 tracks which include a collection of hits from both of their catalogues. The legendary singer Graham Bonnet who has been active in rainbow and Alcatrus and the authentic heavy metal band ANTHEM that Japan is proud of are united here. Graham agrees with the invitation of ANTHEM leader Naoto Shibata to “record like a jam session.” But it’s easy to say and hard to do. It is commonplace that the hurdles to reach realization are high. What I could easily overcome was the work of friendship for more than 20 years. Only if there is a lot of trust between them. Thus the emergency session was fulfilled.

Psycho Fantasy is the fourth studio album by rock group Phenomena, released in 2006 on Escape Music label. Phenomena is a rock concept around a supergroup formed by record producer Tom Galley, Metalhammer magazine founder Wilfried Rimensberger and Tom's brother, Whitesnake guitarist Mel Galley. Contributors were leading rock musicians such as Glenn Hughes, Brian May, Tony Martin and John Wetton amongst others. In a cover story, run by Kerrang! magazine in 1985, Phenomena's production of rock songs based on a story line running through a whole album, attached to artworks and other multi-media aspects was credited for the "return of the concept album" in the 1980s.
