Thomas then retraces Stravinsky's journey to the cultural crossroads of pre-war Paris, where the composer collaborates with the great impresario Diaghilev and his star dancer Nijinsky to develop the shocking, erotic, and violent evocation of pagan Russia that became The Rite of Spring.

Symphony no. 7 by Anton Bruckner ( Recording )
6 editions published in 2005 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mahlers Zevende Symfonie, geschreven tijdens de zomervakanties van 1904 en 1905, is de laatste van drie zuiver orkestrale Symfonieen. Mahler herzag de partituur meerdere malen. Het is een merkwaardig en moeilijk te doorgronden werk. De Symfonie bevat twee zogenaamde 'Nachtmusiken' waarin weer wat van de oude 'Wunderhorn'-sfeer terug lijkt te keren. Opvallend is verder het gebruik van koebellen, gitaar en mandoline
S & M by Metallica (Musical group) ( Recording )
3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
After 1988's ...And Justice for All, Metallica pared down its progressive, heavy metal sound. During the '90s, the band's studio releases grew slicker and more produced, resulting in mostly radio-friendly, good ol' boy metal. By the end of the decade, Metallica was established as the pioneer of modern metal, but the band hadn't done anything innovative, arguably, in ten years. In April 1999, the group performed two concerts with the San Francisco Symphony, and the result was S&M, a two-disc collection of the concerts. Overall, the album successfully pairs violin strings with guitar strings, but it's no surprise that the best tracks here are the older songs; their multi-layered, compositional style works well with symphonic arrangements. "Master of Puppets," "Call of the Ktulu," "One," and "For Whom the Bell Tolls" sound richer and fuller with violin, trumpet, clarinet, harp, trombone, and flute accompaniments, but "Sad but True," "Devil's Dance," and especially "Of Wolf and Man" range from haphazard and melodramatic to uninspired. S&M definitely has its moments, and not just with the pre-Black Album material: "Fuel" surpasses the furious pumping energy of the studio version, "Hero of the Day" stays poignant throughout, and "Until It Sleeps" has a wonderfully sinister feel. James Hetfield maintains his madman persona from beginning to end, laughing maniacally and grunting and growling at all the right moments. Overall, the symphony adds a macabre, ghoulish atmosphere -- it all sounds like a Broadway freak show or a revved-up Danny Elfman nightmare. Which is exactly what a Metallica album should sound like, even if every song isn't the best (or most appropriate) in the band's catalog. Gina Boldman
