Markus Stockhausen and the Metropole Orkest by Markus Stockhausen( )

5 editions published in 2013 in 3 languages and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jazzorchestrale Meditationen mit wunderbarem Trompetenton. "Umso schöner, dieses auch in den Streichern groß besetzte Jazzorchester in seiner vollen Pracht und mit seinen vortrefflich improvisierenden Solisten zu hören. Markus Stockhausen hat zwei komplementäre neue Werke komponiert, ,Yin und Yang' betitelt. Er bevorzugt den lydischen Modus mit der erhöhten 4. Stufe, was seiner Musik stets einen offenen, lichten, heiteren, nach oben strebenden Charakter verleiht. Yin ist das sanftere Stück, getragen von vier durchgängig tätigen Solisten an Vibraphon, Gitarre, Harfe und elektrischem Klavier, sehr weich pulsierend. Yang hingegen ist in seiner Energie straffer, mit fesselnden Soli von Trompete, Sopransaxophon, Posaune und elektrischer Geige, und mit immer wieder eingestreuten, markanten Trompetenfanfaren." (nmz.de) "Die vorliegende Aufnahme belegt, dass der Klangkörper auf dem Höhepunkt seiner Musikalität ist und mit ungeheurer Sensibilität und Aufmerksamkeit, mit überbordender Spielfreude und einer beeindruckenden Technik ausgestattet ist. Ebenso ist auch der Einfluss des Dirigenten Jules Buckley (fester Gastdirigent neben Vince Mendoza) nicht zu unterschätzen, der das Orchester behutsam in die Formensprache Stockhausens eingeführt hat. Seine Erfahrungen in zahlreichen Crossover-Projekten (wie in dem von Buckley mit gegründeten Heritage Orchester) sind unüberhörbar, Genrehürden werden denn auch hier locker übersprungen. Markus Stockhausen und das Metropole Orkest: eine wirklich gelungene Zusammenarbeit, die das Publikum bei der Aufführung begeisterte. Und die wir jetzt als Mitschnitt erleben dürfen - jede Minute ist hörenswert" (jpc.de)

Sylva by Michael League( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Forests. Just how important are they? Frankly, they are essential to sustain life on Earth; we need them to sustain clean air and water, not to mention the shade and shelter they provide, along with the multiple products that are derived from them or the domain they offer the world's wildlife. Unfortunately, all too often they are at risk from deforestation and the purpose of this short, reverent program is to underscore to viewers of all ages that a forest is our friend, an important biome that is a natural living organism. Here we are offered a warm, sensitive look at the pastoral beauty of life in the forest with the hope of inspiring viewers to look for the magic and mystery of the forest, to explore the nature and feeling of the forest, and to ultimately remember our responsibility to preserve and protect this treasured natural resource
