Selected Poems: with parallel German text (Oxford &hellip by Rainer Maria Rilke
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 6 Mar 2014
An excellent edition. Ther selection of the poems is very representative. The parallel texts really helpful. The introduction is very good. I can't judge the kindle edition because I haven't seen it. Maybe poetry should be read from paper and not from a screen.

Great music played by an excellent organist on a wonderful organ!
Organ music in the 19th century French tradition.
Very attractive and not really expensive.
Ashley Grote reveals himself as one of the important organists of our age.
He plays the organ of Gloucester Cathedral.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good and warm music, 9 Mar 2012
All the music on this set is good. An excellent introduction to Janacek.
Especially the pieces conducted by Sir Charles Mackerras are great, both as music and because of the way they have been performed and recorded: Târas Bulba and the Sinfonietta. A real bargain!
Janacek is a Czech composer of the first half of the 20th century. I would call his music expressionistic. Don't be put down by the difficult word. The music is good, warm and colourful.
