Weimar and Thuringia proclaim Bach's greatness - Turkey TelegraphFriday, April 13, 2018
Conceiving Passion as a great tapestry chamber in which his constant interventions as an evangelist operate as a warp, are each of instrumentalists and singers who are weaving each part that corresponds to m: with an unusual autonomy, But also with an absolute implication and a concentration without which shipwreck would be continually bordered. They are all counting and living story of Passion of Christ, even when y do not touch or sing. Padmore seems to live it, as if it were physically suffering, as if it caused an irreversible emotional tear, as if it were first time – or last – that sings it.It is not difficult to imagine after this passion according to San Mateo extensive and intense essaysNothing would be possible without complicity of musicians who took capital of ir share of responsibility and who ended up literally exhausted. It is impossible not to emphasize superb flute solos of veteran Lisa Beznosiuk, or to stop extoling astonishing translation of continuum offered by cellist Luise Buchberger, an essential supporter of entire evangelistic narrative. Vocally, both choirs exhibited a seamless compactness, both collectively and individually in incarnation of secondary characters, although arias and recitals sung by Roderick Williams (who was also a Jesus of an extraordinary Humanity) and Claudia Hucke (with a beautiful alto timbre) contained an added emotion.Padmore, who sang by heart, as in "Ritualizaciones" of two passions of Bach imagined by Peter Sellars in Philharmonie of Berlin, hardly suggests extramusical movements, but few that poses, as when singers are rising one after Anor by singing "Lord, Am I?" after foreshadowing Christ that one of his disciples will betray him, y are of great efficacy. Everyone knows exactly what to do at any time, although this is first concert of a tour that will continue in Dortmund, Paris, London, Amsterdam, Krakow and Basingstoke. It is not difficult to imagine after this passion according to San Mateo extensive and intense essays.Balloons, flowers and music to celebrate Bach's birthday in front of his birthplace in Eisenach. l.g.The extreme transparency of choral passages (it is possible to visualize almost each one of voices and instrumental lines) does not subtract an iota of intensity, like when both choruses cry "have rays and thunders vanished between clouds?", which Padmore bonded with Immediately, as if score prescribed a attacca, with evangelical narration, in which Lur's linguistic genius, Bach's musical rhetoric, and dramatic force of English tenor, whose falsetto seems supernatural when he recalls prophecy of The three denials of Peter or describe earthquake after death of Christ.The Orchestra of Age of Enlightenment and two groups of eight singers work miracle of giving life to this pinnacle of our civilization understood as an exercise of sincere collective fervor, in which re is no place for Personalismos. The entire group withdrew from stage and returned to thank enthusiastic reception of public up to four occasions, without any room for individual applause to vocal or instrumental soloists. Something like this would have completely denied spirit of experience we had just shared. The audience of Weimar, who listened concentrated and absorbed, perfectly understood message: it was an interpretation of everyone, with everyone, for everyone.Happy birthdayBach was born in Eisenach 333 years ago, a threefold Trinitarian (and semidiabolical, ors would say) that would have made delights of composer, so friend of numerical symbology. Like all March 21, his current neighbors congregated in morning next to his birthplace to remember most famous son of city. In a simple act were deposited several bouquets of flowers at foot of his statue and a small children's choir and a group of wind instrumentalists interpreted his music. We all sang toger a chorale of composer and in end, to miti...http://www.turkeytelegraph.com/life-style/weimar-and-thuringia-proclaim-bach-s-greatness-h16596.html
At Home with Stéphanie Watine Arnault, the Fashion Royal and Founder of Clos19 - W MagazineThursday, March 15, 2018
Last year, she launched Clos19, a digital platform that offers a range of luxe entertaining options, centered around Dom Pérignon, Moët & Chandon, and Krug, all part of LVMH’s stable of champagne and fine spirits brands. “We’re not selling bottles, we’re selling lifestyle, with a touch of hedonism,” says the blonde Parisienne, whose drink of choice is a martini with “just the zest of the lemon” before, or perhaps after, dinner.Clos19—named for the French term for a walled vineyard and the 19th century, when champagne began being widely consumed—has launched in the U.S., the U.K., and Germany, and will send everything and everyone you need to stage the perfect soirée: hard-to-find vintages, mixologists, glassware, sommeliers, and waiters. But as an “experience” business, the company can also take you on a tour of the finest wineries in France, or even to Antarctica on one of its catered adventures (a $94,500-per-person, eight-day trip includes champagne at the South Pole). “We live so much through the screen, it’s good to focus on creating wonderful happenings in real life,” Watine Arnault says. “I knew Clos19 needed to be a digital company, but I’m still the sort of person who likes to send handwritten Christmas cards.”An occasional table by the French designer Elizabeth Garouste.

Abandoned cello hits a high note in Bethlehem - San Francisco ChronicleThursday, March 15, 2018
Thomas Wentzel of Lititz.Antes also composed some music — he's believed to be the first American to produce chamber music and wrote choral pieces including the popular "Go, Congregation, Go."In 1779 in Egypt, Antes forwarded a letter and a set of six string quartets he composed to Benjamin Franklin, whom he had met in Pennsylvania as a young man. In that letter, Antes suggested that the Moravians, pacifists, were being charged too much in lieu of not fighting in the Revolutionary War.Antes eventually went back to Europe, marrying Susanna Crabtree in 1785. He invented a pedal music stand, and improved other musical mechanisms, according to "John Antes — American Dilettante" by Donald M. McCorkle. Antes died Dec. 17, 1811, at age 71 in Bristol, England.Antes cello?Could Riddle's cello really be the work of John Antes?Riddle invited Kass, a member of the Appraisers Association of America, to the Lehigh Valley this month to find out.They met in Nazareth's 1740 Whitefield House, the Moravian Historical Society museum that isn't too far from C.F. Martin.The cello was placed on a long table wrapped in a white cover. A table next to it contained the two known Antes instruments: the 1764 viola from Lititz and the 1759 violin from Nazareth.Wearing white gloves and using a lighted wand, Kass explored the inside of the cello for clues. He quickly found Antes' label, similar to what is in the other instruments.The cello has an American maple exteri...

What's in a Home? - CityLabFriday, April 13, 2018
He was astonished by Peru’s diversity, both in terms of geography and inhabitants, as he traveled around the country.Thomas Dworzak travelled around the world—Bavaria, Georgia, Iran—to capture the places he had called home: places that he says still burn within him. Of Tblisi, Georgia, in particular, Dworzak wrote in the forward to his photo set, “I force myself away for longer periods but am sure to always come back. And still, I will always remain a foreigner…I think I will never gain the same level of understanding, the language, the dialect, the humor, than whenever I return to visit my father in that place I left so desperately 30 years ago.” Dworzak photographed his father in the Bavarian village from which he was deported as a child; his wife in Tehran; his friends in Tblisi. While Dworzak also included images of location and scenery, it is clear that, for him, home is haunted by the people who inhabit it.It is impossible for “home” to be interpreted exactly the same way by different people, influenced as we are by entirely different things: the way light strikes the wall of our favorite diner, the curve of our grandmother’s cheek, the way it feels to walk the same street for years. But the book proves that there are many ways to think about a home, and even more ways to visualize it.Home is available for purchase at the Magnum shop.
Keukenhof Gardens: Discover a wealth of flowers - United States Army Friday, April 13, 2018
Dutch growers and a wealth of flowers, sorted by color. The Keukenhof, translated to Kitchen Garden, owes its name to Countess Jacoba van Beieren (Jaqueline of Bavaria), who had a castle at this location in the 15th century. She stayed there very often, because the area provided good hunting grounds. Herbs and vegetables were grown in the yard for her kitchen and these have given way to more colorful plants and flowers. Over six million flower bulbs provide beautiful scenic spots throughout the park. Large flower palaces are filled with oceans of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and smaller varieties of their species as well as orchids, roses, carnations, irises, lilies and many more flowers. As the season progresses, the emphasis shifts to different groups of flowers. It is a display of colors and an overwhelming perfume.Endless varieties of tulips can be seen most of the time, but the best time to view them is mid-April. Other flowers bloom again at a different time. However, the park is always a colorful sight. The flower shops in the park can actually mail flower bulbs to the U.S. for customers.The park is open only in the spring time. This year, you can visit from March 22 to May 23. The Keukenhof is open daily from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Ticket office closes at 6 p.m. Entry is €16 for adults and €8 for children age 4 to 11. Keukenhof is easy to reach via the A4 (exit Nieuw-Vennep) and the A44 (exit 3 Lisse). Follow the Keukenhof s...
