I have a rather esoteric taste in music, I like a bit of everything in moderation.
Glass's music is in a particular genre(Minimalism) that is a bit like marmite, at first you either love it or hate it.
However, there are so many layers and within a single movement, it's impossible not to grow to appreciate at least some of his compositions.
With the violin concerto being performed so fantasticlly here(in particular, although both 'Company' and the 'Akhnaten' pieces also well performed), it's impossible not to be drawn into it.
Just give it a chance.

This is a brilliant edition of the wonderful collection of concertos in Vivaldi's Opus 10. They are all stunning concertos, but in particular 1st Concerto "La tempesta di mare" is particularly spellbinding, and No. 3 "Il Gardellino" isn't far behind.
Drahos is a superb Flautist having won a several awards and played Principle flute with the Budapest Sym. Orch. for a number of years, and here he plays the flute spectacularly.
If you're a fan of the Vivaldi or the Flute or just Classical or Baroque music, buy this. If you're learning to play the Flute, this is a Must Buy!
I would even recommend it if it were at full price, but at budget price it's a steal!

Living in a very predominantly Turkish and Greek part of London, in this very well presented book I found many of the locally sold fares and having made a couple of my favourites, I would have to say they stand up well against the shop bought ones.
The recipes range from snacks and breads and pastries, making 'Village' cheese to meats, vegetables and desserts.
Apart from that, this book is very well illustrated with photographs, and gives the names of each recipe in Turkish and English. The introduction is interesting with a brief explanation of the different origins of some foods and explanation of of the areas of Turkey.
Well worth buying.
