Auteur de savoureuses nouvelles policières, d'humour et de science-fiction, Fredric Brown (1906-1972), prix Edgar Poe en 1947, commença sa carrière d'écrivain dans le journalisme.

Fredric Drum, l'investigatore gourmet, vive a Oslo, dove, tra i molti suoi interessi, gestisce anche con successo un ristorante stellato. Il suo grande amico Hallgrim Hellgren, conservatore della Galleria nazionale, dopo una giornata di lavoro torna a casa, in una valle vicina alla città. Lì, al centro del suo piccolo salotto, trova la gigantesca statua in pietra di Assurbanipal, re degli Assiri, uno dei pezzi più preziosi del museo. Sconvolto, si rimette in macchina verso Oslo per dare la notizia, ma mentre guida viene colpito da un oggetto che sfonda il parabrezza e gli fracassa il cranio. Fredric Drum questa volta deve affrontare un mistero che sembra impossibile da risolvere: l'inspiegabile omicidio di Hellgren e la presenza di una statua pesante quattro tonnellate in un piccolo casolare di campagna. Negli stessi giorni attorno a lui iniziano ad accadere cose impensabili, e Fredric si ritrova invischiato in un dramma che sfida le leggi della natura umana..

Philip Glass' opera from 2009 explores the life of scientist Johannes Kepler though a series of dramatic scenes with two hours of Glass' music. Kepler in many ways hearkens back to Glass' portrait operas of the early 1980s and continues the composers interest in scientists after having also written operas on Einstein and Galileo. The opera premiered at the Landestheater Linz in 2009 as part of Linz 09, the European Cultural Capital, and continues the amazing 30 year collaboration between Glass and the conductor Dennis Russell Davies, the music director of both the Landestheater Linz and its orchestra, the Bruckner Orchester Linz who has also recorded Glass' music extensively for the Orange Mountain Music label including Glass Symphonies 6, 7, and 8, and Glass' large scale opera The Voyage which was originally written for the Metropolitan Opera. Kepler is a refreshing return to large scale symphonic writing for the opera house. Recent Glass operas including Waiting for the Barbarians and Appomattox carry more dialogue and intimate narrative scenes whereas Kepler is a musical dedication to the life of this great scientists - triumphs and human flaws.

This is an enchanting CD, every item a sheer delight. Margaret Leng Tan worked with Cage in the last decade of his life and her earlier recordings (1/92; 7/95) show a special sympathy for the magical world of Cage's keyboard music. The second of her New Albion CDs included the piano solo version of The Seasons, and Cage was honest enough to admit to her that he had help from Virgil Thomson and Lou Harrison in making the orchestral version recorded here. The result is recognisably Cage at his most poetic, evoking each of the four seasons in lovely changing colours. There are two realisations of one of the last of what are called Cage's 'Number Pieces', Seventy-Four, written specially for the American Composers Orchestra a few months before his death in 1992. Several hearings have confirmed for me that this seamless garment of sustained sound in two overlapping parts is an immensely moving document from a unique human being at the very end of his life.
