Timeline Photos John Renbourn’s sudden passing is a devastating loss to his family, friends and music in general. Throughout the 1960s, John and Bert were often inseparable, spurring each other to ever greater heights, first on 1966's Bert & John, then on the genre-defying albums of @[187637961259237:274:Pentangle].
Reconciled in 2007 for the Pentangle reunion at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, they then often spent happy hours tinkering away in Bert’s home studio and reviewing the live recordings from Pentangle’s 2008 tour.
After Bert’s passing, John remained a great champion of Bert’s work and an active supporter of @[763997147002806:274:The Bert Jansch Foundation]. We were delighted when he devised one of his renowned @[349979311799399:274:Renbourn Guitar Workshops] entirely about Bert’s music in 2014. Thanks to the RGW team, we were able to offer a Bert Jansch Foundation Scholarship for a young musician to attend the course. Among John’s many plans this year, which was celebrating his 50th anniversary, was an additional week-long workshop exclusively for applicants for this scholarship as the field was so strong.
Like Bert, John never stopped – still touring, playing, teaching, sharing right up to his final days. He wasn’t done yet and his loss will be felt by many for a long time to come.

A mix of Italian songs that remind me of a my childhood. A mix for the feast. For the Italian festival. For warm summer evenings under a well established pergola drinking vino and espresso. What a great blessing it was to grow up this way. I cherish the nostalgia fostered by memories of the wonderful Italian American immigrant community that raised me.

In 1989, the Beastie Boys released their second album, "Paul's Boutique", a sonic collage of a whopping 105 song samples put together by the Boys and their producers, the Dust Brothers. It eventually became what many consider to be one of the greatest albums ever released.
Sadly, the world lost Beastie Boy Adam "MCA" Yauch on May 4, 2012. As a tribute, let's revisit the epic "Paul's Boutique" and mix up a healthy selection of some of the original songs later sampled on this masterpiece.
Super-tight, high-end disco groovers.

It's that time of the year again: twelve months full of exciting releases and stunning sounds come to a close, a perfect opportunity to look back and do what us geeks love to do most... a list. Sure enough, it will be a spotty selection at best, as there's always a personal favorite which didn't make the cut - still, we think we managed to compile a nicely balanced podcast featuring obvious bangers alongside secret weapons and other surprising outings from our distribution labels. Behold three hours of sonic majesty with Kompakt.fm's Best Of 2013!

"When I left the control room, everybody was moved, was excited, most of the people were crying. People are more, yeah, they have difficulties to believe that it happened, so, but we are very busy, the control team is busy in checking the situation, stabilising the situation, so they won't have much time to think of the historical moment - they have to work," head of ESA operations Paolo Ferri told journalists after the landing."Signs continue coming, of course the scientific experiments will start a bit later, but the measurements for the instruments which were already active - and they are already active now - are coming," Mr Ferri added.

The dedicated sound engineers of Abbey Road explain how they have unveiled the voice of Maria Callas in greater clarity and depth than ever before.

Unlike Beethoven's Sixth, which leaves little doubt as to their subject with babbling brooks, singing birds and summer storms, the musical images arise in Vaughan Williams indirect. The horror, the demands Walton, was the participation in the First World War for Vaughan Williams. Only in 1938, 16 years after the completion of the work, the composer revealed the great influence that his war experiences had taken in France on his Third Symphony. The declared pacifist had there, voluntarily served with already 42 years as a paramedic. Powerful images »Vaughan Williams' music conjures up images vast landscape," says Norrington during a rehearsal break last June. "But it is the scenery of the First World War, a landscape, have suffered infinitely in the human. The music is not programmatic, but very vivid - and she has four slow movements. At first this may sound boring, but it is incredibly touching. "His imagination helps Norrington going to keep the tension to work out a development in four slow movements. How four seasons, so he told them act on it. Starting with a serene summer, followed by a plaintive trumpet player in the fall, probably blows to his own funeral - incidentally, the only real quote that brought the composer from the war. The third set represents Norrington for the winter, clear and white, the horror graciously be obstructions. The fourth then the spring, which always is otherwise a fresh start, but here only a bleak Call to nowhere -. According to all those who will never recur These are strong images, and they represent an intense and exciting music in all seriousness an elegiac, almost unearthly beauty and exudes tranquility.
