In Hope and Glory, Stuart goes in search of the places, people and events of the century we have just left behind that have shaped the look and character of modern Britain. From the death of Victoria to the demise of New Labour, he takes a single event from each decade of the 20th century that offers up a defining moment in our history and then goes in search of its legacy today. The death of a queen, a bloody war, a nation on strike, a first broadcast, a ship coming into land, reaching for the top of the world, an epic football match, a youth rebellion, a pop concert and an election – each event in turn has shaped our national culture and spirit to make us who we are. Some were glorious days, some tragic, even shameful, but each has played its part – from sport to music, politics to war, industrial relations to exploration – in making modern Britain. 1901 – the death of Victoria and the rise of British women; 1916 - the First World War in the national psyche; 1926 - the General Strike and industrial conflict; 1936 – how the British invented television; 1948 – the docking of the Empire Windrush and multi-cultural Britain; 1953 – Edmund Hillary’s ascent of Everest and the tradition of British adventure; 1966 – how we won the World Cup and our continued obsession with the game we gave the world; 1977 – Royalists and Rebels, the Queen’s Silver Jubilee and the rise of punk; 1985 – how Live Aid gave birth to celebrity culture; 1997 – the rise and fall of Blair’s spin revolution. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stuart Maconie. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rhuk/001073/bk_rhuk_001073_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Celebration Suite - I. Jig

Celebration, a 4-movement suite, was written for and premiered by Gerry Mulligan at the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival in Lübeck, Germany in 1994. Recorded by Bob Brookmeyer and the New Art Orchestra on New Works (Challenge CHR 70066), featuring Scott Robinson, baritone sax. 'The good will and beautiful playing of the musicians can not be described in words... just music. They have my eternal gratitude for making my life and music shine.' Bob Brookmeyer Bob Brookmeyer (b. 1929) began writing music at age 14 and also began playing the valve trombone, arriving in NY in 1952. After joining Stan Getz in 1953, he replaced Chet Baker in the Gerry Mulligan Quartet, remaining with Mulligan for nine years, writing much of the music for the Concert Jazz Band. With Thad Jones-Mel Lewis, he wrote ABC Blues, Willow Weep For Me and St. Louis Blues, all seminal additions to the big band literature. After returning from California in 1978, he became Musical Director of the Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra and wrote some of the finest music for that band including American Express, Ding Dong Ding, First Love Song, Hello and Goodbye, and Skylark. In the 1980s he wrote for both Jazz and Classical Orchestras and in 1994 formed the New Art Orchestra, an 18-piece ensemble of mainly European musicians. They have recorded two CDs for the Challenge label and commenced touring in 2001. A book on Composition is in the works and a DVD on Band Teaching is also planned. During the past decade, Brookmeyer has composed a diverse collection of jazz material, chamber music, and large orchestral works. Instrumentation: big band

Ritual Dances
51,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Tippett’s decision to extract the four Ritual Dances from his opera 'The Midsummer Marriage' as a self-contained concert suite reflects the fact that the medium of dance was always present in his conception of the opera. From the start, there was to be an interaction within the opera between the real world and the world of mythology, partly Greek, partly Celtic. This mythological element culminates, in the finished opera, in the 'Ritual Dances' of Acts 2 and 3. Tippett himself described his opera as ‘a kind of elaborate 'L’après midi d’un faune’, in which the 'Ritual Dances' display a powerful sexual energy, though of a very different kind from Debussy’s voluptuous langour. Composition of The Midsummer Marriage occupied Tippett for six years from 1946 to 1952. The first performance of the Ritual Dances as a concert suite was given in Basel on 13 February 1953 by the Basel Kammerorchester conducted by Paul Sacher, and preceded the premiere of the complete opera by two years. Today the Ritual Dances rival the Concerto for Double String Orchestra (ETP 1331) as Tippett’s most widely-performed orchestral work. Instrumentation: orchestra, choir and 4 soloists ad. lib.

The Victim

Saul Bellow was born in 1915 to Russian ¿gr¿arents. As a young child in Chicago, Bellow was raised on books - the Old Testament, Shakespeare, Tolstoy and Chekhov - and learned Hebrew and Yiddish. He set his heart on becoming a writer after reading Uncle Tom's Cabin, contrary to his mother's hopes that he would become a rabbi or a concert violinist. He was educated at the University of Chicago and North-Western University, graduating in Anthropology and Sociology; he then went on to work for the Encyclopaedia Britannica. Bellow published his first novel, The Dangling Man, in 1944; this was followed, in 1947, by The Victim. In 1948 a Guggenheim Fellowship enabled Bellow to travel to Paris, where he wrote The Adventures of Augie March, published in 1953. Henderson The Rain King (1959) brought Bellow worldwide fame, and in 1964, his best-known novel, Herzog, was published and immediately lauded as a masterpiece, 'a well-nigh faultless novel' (New Yorker). Saul Bellow's dazzling career as a novelist was celebrated during his lifetime with an unprecedented array of literary prizes and awards, including the Pulitzer Prize, three National Book Awards, and the Gold Medal for the Novel. In 1976 he was awarded a Nobel Prize 'for the human understanding and subtle analysis of contemporary culture that are combined in his work'. Bellow's death in 2005 was met with tribute from writers and critics around the world, including James Wood, who praised 'the beauty of this writing, its music, its high lyricism, its firm but luxurious pleasure in language itself'.

The Russian ballerina Lydia Kyasht was very much a free spirit. A childhood friend of her fellow ballerina Tamara Karsavina, she appears frequently in the early pages of the latter's autobiography, usually as chief mischief-maker, and her autobiography reflects that aspect of her personality. She gives her impressions and experiences of European life and society, especially of the Russian Court before the revolution, but her book is as much about the author's romantic adventures as it is about her dazzling career as a dancer - 'I believe it is a good thing for a woman to have a lover', she writes, a bold sentiment for 1929 when her book was first published.Kyasht was born in 1885. She studied at the St Petersburg Imperial Ballet School with Pavel Gerdt and joined the Maryinsky Theatre in 1902, becoming second dancer in 1905 and first dancer in 1908. She was also a soloist with the Bolshoi (1903-4) and performed in various concert recitals. In 1908 she went to London where she succeeded Adeline Genée as prima ballerina at the Empire Theatre, performing there for several seasons until 1913. In 1912 she also danced with Diaghilev's Ballets Russes (and again in 1919), and made her New York debut in 1914. After returning to Russia to dance concert performances (1914-17) she settled in London and founded her own school (which moved to Cirencester in 1948) while also dancing in cabaret and the theatre. In 1939 she founded her own company, Ballet de la Jeunesse Anglaise, which toured England (1939) and Europe (1944) and in 1940 also ran the Lydia Kyasht Ballet. From 1953 she also taught at the Legat School. She died in 1959.
