5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect balance of topics, info, length, 15 Sept. 2009
An excellent resource for performing students, though somewhat short on vocal chamber/parlour music (Schubert is in the Classical volume, if I remember).
The CD is a valuable intro. for many students. Clear writing and good musical exx.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bits of the exotic, 15 Sept. 2009
This review is from: The 30-Minute Cook (Paperback)
Easy recipes as in his other books, some with some unusual spices and ingredients (easy to buy), but on the whole not as creative as some of his earlier volumes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Saw the original, 18 Dec. 2006
I saw this movie when it first showed in the U.S. It is shot according to the Japanese principles of shibui--harmonious beauty, which contrasts with the "ghost" aspects of the simple stories. It is incredibly colorful (visually) and intense. "Hoichi the Earless" makes visible the trials of a reciter-singer of a medieval epic, who is called to the underworld to recite the history of the final battle between the Heike and the Genji before the assembled court of the losing Heike clan--and the movie shoots the images of tale the singer is recounting.
