String Quartet No. 19 in C, ‘Dissonance’

Piano Concerto No. 21 in C, K467

The Marriage of Figaro

Mozart’s comic masterpiece courted controversy by showing a vain aristocrat being bested by his servants, but continues to entertain with its brilliant depth of characterisation.

Sena Jurinac, Graziella Scuitti, Rise Stevens; Glyndebourne Festival Chorus & Orchestra/Vittorio Gui
EMI 476 9422

Symphonies Nos 39-41

In an extraordinary burst of creativity, Mozart composed his last three symphonies in less than three months – and every one a masterpiece.

On this Day January 27, 2014

American folk singer and activist Pete Seegar died at the age of 94. He had a string of hit records during the early 1950s as a member of the Weavers, most notably their recording of Lead Belly’s ‘Goodnight, Irene’, which topped the charts for 13 weeks in 1950. Members of the Weavers were blacklisted during the McCarthy Era. In the 1960s, he re-emerged on the public scene as a prominent singer of protest music in support of international disarmament, civil rights, counterculture and environmental causes.
