Philip Glass, Lee Perry, The Gun, by Yo-Yo Ma, Khatia Buniatishvili, and many more
“I don't know what I'm doing and it's the not knowing that makes it interesting.” Philip Glass
Fresh from the press: the critically acclaimed Philip Glass opera Einstein On The Beach, packed in a deluxe lift-off Box Set. Cloak and Dagger is a testament to Lee Perry's lo-fi mastery and for the likes of the British The Gun hit "Race with the Devil", we have their debut album Gun available. Besides we have the brand new Not Our First Goat Rodeo record by Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile. More into solo piano works from Bach to Pärt and from Brahms to Kancheli? don't hesitate to order Khatia Buniatishvili's Motherland. We have Elvis Costello's Brutal Youth available as a transparent red vinyl edition and The Derek Trucks Band's Already Free on blue & white swirled vinyl. Last but not least, new on our At The Movies label, the incredible score David Arnold composed to the James Bond movie Casino Royale.
This album is dedicated to Khatia Buniatishvili's mother who was her and her sister's first piano teacher - hence, the title Motherland. The various works come in different forms: there are etudes by Chopin and Scriabin, a sonata by Domenico Scarlatti, a song-like piece by Liszt (Wiegenlied), and more.
The Gun were a late 1960s British rock guitar trio who had a single British Top Ten hit, "Race with the Devil". Brothers Adrian (guitar) and Paul (bass) Gurvitz teamed up with drummer Louis Farrell to create some energetic music.
The soundtrack to the 2006 film Casino Royale was composed by David Arnold and is Arnold's fourth soundtrack for the popular James Bond movie series. Frequent collaborator Nicholas Dodd orchestrated and conducted the score. The traditional James Bond Theme builds throughout the film before appearing in its full form over the end credits as track 25, “The Name's Bond... James Bond”.
Not Our First Goat Rodeo is the long-awaited follow-up to the critically-acclaimed Grammy Award-winning album The Goat Rodeo Sessions and combines the talents of the four solo artists, each a Grammy Award-winning talent in his own right, to create a singular sound that's partly composed, part improvised, and uniquely American.
On Already Free (2009), the ninth studio album by The Derek Trucks Band, the band has had more time to mature, and the album's sound is more balanced between the different contributions of its members, who developed its overall effect as they arranged the songs that were recorded for this album. The album marks the band's highest debut on the Billboard Top 200 chart to date. The album won the 2010 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album.
Einstein on the Beach is the much anticipated and critically acclaimed opera composed by Philip Glass. It's the first in Glass's thematically related Portrait Trilogy, along with Satyagraha and Akhnaten.
