    Maud Cotter at Dublin's Rubicon Gallery in Brussels

    A pyrex tea cup containing nothing less than the entire universe, is among the objects sculptor Maud Cotter has brought along as Dublin's Rubicon Gallery takes temporary residence in Brussels.

    Riccardo Chailly and the Gewandhaus Orchestra take another significant step in an extraordinary musical journey with the release of the two Brahms Serenades. The Serenades have been unjustly neglected and are rarely heard in concert, making them perfect repertoire for Chailly’s enquiring mind. Widely respected as a conductor with a “rare talent for transforming music ripe for rediscovery” (Gramophone), his reading of the Serenades fits with his philosophy that “all music must aspire to be ‘new music’ again”. 

    Sadly, after nearly 30 years together the wonderful vocal group  Anonymous 4 will make the 2015-16 season its last. What a legacy they have left behind, over 20 recordings on the harmonia mundi label and here on Classic Drive we love their latest, 1865 is a CD with Bruce Molsky of material from the American Civil War. That year marked the end of the war and it was also smack dab in the middle of the Romantic period in art, literature, and music. Romanticism flowed through American pop culture as well, so on this disc of Civil War-era songs, expect to hear music infused with highly expressive, sensitive, personal, ofttimes sentimental overtones.
