Dior Homme Menswear Fall/Winter 2015-2016

"Leave it to Kris Van Assche to remind us that, whilst Day-Glo and man skirts come and go, Paris menswear at its heart has always been about rigour and refinement. The creative director of Dior Homme opened his AW15 show by grandly sweeping back a curtain to reveal an ensemble of violinists to welcome his sleek tuxedo suiting onto the stage. Normally, the eveningwear is the final flourish to a designer’s collection but here Van Assche presented it straight off the bat as a statement of intent."

"Eno has given Arena unprecedented access to observe him working in his studio and talking with friends and colleagues.

Victory Over the Sun

The Russian Museum - The Moscow Stas Namin Theatre of Music and Drama reconstruction of the Alexei Kruchenykh, Mikhail Matiushin, Kazimir Malevich opera, Victory over the Sun (Russian: Победа над Cолнцем, Pobeda nad Solntsem), a Russian Futurist opera premiered in 1913 at the Luna Park in Saint Petersburg.

Zaum and Sun: The first Futurist opera revisited.

"When the Futurist opera Victory over the Sun was first performed in St Petersburg in 1913, the audience reacted violently to the chaos of Mikhail Matiushin's music, Alexei Kruchenykh's nonsensical text and Kazimir Malevich's costume. Subsequent critics and historians have reacted in a similarly negative fashion, and although the work is referred to often in histories of the Russian Futurist movement, it is largely on account of Malevich's contribution. His costumes were composed of bright geometric shapes and the backdrop included a black square - together these elements mark his first experiments with the technique of 'suprematism', which he was to continue to develop over the next two years. In 1915 at the 0.10 Exhibition, Malevich exhibited a large series of suprematist canvases composed of planes of colour, with his Black Square holding centre place, hung like an icon in the corner of the room."

"It is India in the fifth century BCE, the age of the historical Buddha, and a rather peculiar principle of reasoning appears to be in general use. This principle is called the catuskoti, meaning ‘four corners’. It insists that there are four possibilities regarding any statement: it might be true (and true only), false (and false only), both true and false, or neither true nor false."

Mozart - Idomeneo (1781)

"Season 2005/2006 (the world is going to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's birth): with this performance of Idomeneo, Daniel Harding debuts on the Milanese rostrum, after 19 years of Riccardo Muti’s conducting.

"Having reduced the size of the orchestra, Harding also cuts the score: in addition to the final ballet, and a few arias, the most impressive cut is the Intermezzo after the first act, which makes for smooth progression into the second, thus benefiting the rhythm of the dramaturgy.

"But this was an opera that undewent a ruthless revising and cutting by his own author, right up until a last-minute surgery, in order to achieve the maximum dramatic pacing and verisimilitude: Mozart had immense difficulty in balancing the conflicting claims of naturlness, brevity and dramatic flow and an overlong libretto. Varesco had inherited the fable from the French tragédie lyrique, Mozart was going to loosen eighteenth-century stereotyped forms: romantic upheaval was knocking on the door…

"Harding does nothing but delete or reduce antiquated residuals: some dances, secco recitatives and mannerist arias. … As well as at that time traditionalists were silenced by young Mozart’s genius, at present habitués and Muti loyalists has been conquered by young Harding. (On the premier, after two curtain calls, Harding joined the cast on stage for 12-minute ovation).

"Personally, I’ve found this performance excellent (!) and so I’ve enriched it with english subtitles, to improve its disclosure."

Tangerine Dream - Rubycon

"If Phaedra invented the Berlin-School sound, then Rubycon defined it. Taking all of the individual elements of the former album, Tangerine Dream arranged them into a winning formula: each side opens and closes with washes of ambient sound, with an improvised sequencer section in the middle. Part One opens with a rich, glorious display of the nearest the band came to Eno's style of 'ambient' music, particularly excellent in its use of electric piano to add warmth and texture. If this type of music, and TD themselves, have become synonymous with extended sequencer workouts then it's interesting to note that that particular element of the track doesn't come in until almost halfway through the piece. When it finally appears, with a meandering mellotron melody and dramatic reversed piano accompaniment, it becomes one of the most striking and memorable moments in the band's history."
