Bernd Alois Zimmermann would have been one hundred today. Mark Berry, in the New York Times, has a discerning overview of the great German composer, whose works bear unflinching witness to the darkest of centuries. I wrote about Die Soldaten in 1995 and 2008.

#morninglistening to #Mozart #PianoSonatas w/@WilliamYoun on @OehmsClassics
Recorded @SchlossElmau1, this is Vol.1 of the fabulous cycle that is now being released as a box.
Wholly engrossing – and solidly among my favorites next to Haebler et al.

The instrumental album ‘Long Day’s Flight Till Tomorrow’ was released by Kåre & The Cavemen in 1999 before the band changed its name to Euroboys when the double LP was to be launched beyond the Norwegian borders for an international audience.
In 2011 the record was hailed among the 100 best Norwegian albums ever by paper Morgenbladet, who claimed the capitol Oslo to be “the epicentre of pan-european coolness” of the late 90s age of ironic counterculture, pointing to Euroboys’ 70 minutes long melodious rock document as its manifest. Others featured Long Day’s Flight Till Tomorrow as The Album’s response to a Quentin Tarantino movie; fast, elegant, raw and direct.
Excerpts and references to joyful moments from the history of rock shines confidently and cheerfully through the four sides – like shadow images of the past on a colorful carpet sparking into the future.
“Long Day’s Flight, without losing the sight of tomorrow for one moment,” wrote Fredrik Wandrup in norwegian paper Dagbladet.
“One of the best Norwegian albums ever”, Frank Michaelsen in Deichman’s music blog writes.

Eric Clapton’s four year old son, Conor, fell to his death from the 53rd story of a New York City apartment after a
housekeeper who was cleaning the room left a window open. The boy was in the custody of his mother, Italian actress, Lori Del Santo and the pair were visiting a friend’s apartment. Clapton was staying in a nearby hotel after taking his son to the circus the previous evening. The tragedy inspired his song Tears in Heaven.
