Esprit d'Arménie

De totes les cultures desenvolupades, la música –representada per certs instruments i per les maneres de cantar i de tocar que la poden definir–, esdevé el reflex espiritual més fidel de l’ànima i la Història dels pobles. De tots els instruments utilitzats en les seves antigues tradicions musicals, Armènia ha atorgat una preferència particular a un instrument únic, el duduk, fins al punt que hom pot afirmar que aquest instrument l’ha definida d’una manera gairebé absoluta.

La Futura / ZZ Top

LA FUTURA, produced by Rick Rubin and Billy F Gibbons, the band’s guitarist/singer, finds the legendary group infusing the newly recorded work with the electric blues/roots approach that typified ZZ Top's earliest work while, at the same time, reaching for new sonic horizons. At its fundament, this is the incarnation of the band whose influence resonates today with such artists as The Black Keys, Jack White, Queens of the Stone Age and many others.

El Rèquiem (Op. 5, Grande Messe des morts) d'Hector Berlioz fou compost el 1837 i revisat el 1852 i el 1867.
