As early as the 17th century in the days of Fleet Admiral Michiel de Ruyter, one of the initiators of the Netherlands Marine Corps, music has played an important role in the navy. Transforming from ships' bands and ensembles into a land-based full-sized orchestra ashore, the Marine Band turned into the all-round musical ambassador of the Royal Netherlands Navy.

From military marching formation, intimate accompanying ensemble, extended big band and classic symphonic wind band to a stunning cover band; no music style is absent from the enormous repertoire.

The Marine Band of the Royal Netherlands Navy developed an appreciation for Russia and the music of her great composers. As part of the celebrations of 300 years Peter the Great and the jubilee of the city, concert tours to St. Petersburg were made in 1997 and 2003. In 2009 the branch of the Hermitage in Amsterdam was opened with a concert and attended by Queen Beatrix and President Medvedev.

In 2013 the Marine Band and the Drums & Fifes of the Netherlands Marine Corps participated in the famous International Military Music Festival 'Spasskaya Tower” on the Red Square in Moscow.

In 2017 the Marine Band of the Royal Netherlands Navy appointed maestro Arjan Tien as its principal conductor and music director. Musicians and critics alike appreciate his interpretations for their warmth, energy and sensitivity, and he is widely considered to be one of the most versatile conductors of his generation.

Ek is lief vir jou, Groot Beer!
Die eerste keer toe Lara vir Groot Beer sien, is op 'n skooluitstappie. Hy lyk nes haar teddie - net baie, baie groter.
Groot Beer lyk hartseer. Daarom gesels Lara met hom. “Moenie hartseer wees nie,” sê sy sag vir hom. “Ek is hier.”
Sy vertel vir hom hy is nie alleen nie. Sy sê vir hom hy hoef nie bekommerd te wees nie en sy vertel vir hom geheime waarvan niemand anders weet nie.
Maar toe Lara daardie middag by die huis kom, staan daar 'n tas en bokse in die gang. Sy hoor harde stemme en kort daarna ry Pappa weg.
“Moenie bekommerd wees nie, my skat,” sê Mamma vir haar. “Ek en jy gaan piekfyn wees.”
Maar daardie aand kan Lara nie slaap nie.
En kort voor lank klim iemand deur haar venster.
“Moenie hartseer wees nie,” sê 'n sagte stem. “Ek is hier.”
En daar is Groot Beer!
Kort voor lank beleef hulle hope avonture saam …
'n Sensitiewe, roerende storie oor 'n kind se hantering van egskeiding, en die wonderlike genesende krag van verbeelding en stories.
Ook in Engels beskikbaar as Big Bear, ISBN: 9780799389203.

I love you, Big Bear!
The first time Sarah saw Big Bear was on a school outing. He looked just like Mr T, her teddy, only much, much bigger.
Big Bear looked sad. So Sarah started talking to him.
“Don't be sad,” she said softly. “I'm here.”
She told him he was not alone. She told him not to worry and she told him secrets that nobody else knew.
But when Sarah went home that afternoon, there were suitcases and boxes in the hallway. She heard angry voices and then Daddy drove away in his car.
“Don't worry, darling,” Mum said. “You and I are going to be just fine.”
But that night Sarah couldn't sleep.
And before long, someone climbed through her window.
“Don't be sad,” said a soft voice. “I'm here.”
And there was Big Bear.
Before long, they were having loads of adventures together…
A sensitive, moving story about a child's experience of divorce and loss, and the wonderful healing power of the imagination and stories.

Leif Ove Andsnes' last release of rare Sibelius piano works was universally acclaimed by critics worldwide. Now comes a release of very popular solo piano works by Chopin. The album includes all four famous Ballades interspersed with shorter Nocturnes.

Andsnes intentionally inserted the Nocturnes between the Ballades to serve as a 'breather' to the epic nature of the Ballades. In doing so he breaks with the tradition of performing and recording the ballades as a cycle.

This recording is a long-held dream come true for Andsnes, who has wanted to record the Ballades ever since discovering them as a teenager and instantly falling in love with them. These epic works have accompanied him and his career ever since. This is his first recording of Chopin works in 25 years.

VIRGINIA VALLEJO: Top Colombian television journalist, cover model and socialite PABLO ESCOBAR: Head of the Medellin cartel, the founder of the global cocaine industry and one of the most ambitious - and brutal - criminals in history Over the course of their tempestuous love affair, Vallejo witnessed first-hand the bloodshed, fear and corruption that accompanied the rise of Escobar's crime empire. In this explosive tale of drugs, sex, wealth and violence, Vallejo describes the man she knew and loved. But, increasingly plagued by threats of kidnap and death for her knowledge on Escobar's ties to the political establishment, Vallejo sought extradition to the United States. Her testimony would reopen one of the most important criminal cases in Colombian history.

Introducing American soprano Nadine Sierra with her debut album, There's A Place for Us. The album is not only a showcase of her stunning, MET-seasoned vocalism but also a reflection of America's history as a refuge for all. In this spirit, the album features music by Leonard Bernstein and émigrés Igor Stravinsky and Osvaldo Golijov, as well as songs from Heitor Villa-Lobos in homage to Sierra's Portuguese roots.

Offering her sumptuous voice in a range of genres from Brazilian art music to American opera and art song, Sierra reminds us that all music and all people have a place in America.

Sony Classical is proud to announce the release of Yo-Yo Ma's new album Six Evolutions - Bach Cello Suites, his third and final recording of these works. Bach and his Cellos Suites entered Yo-Yo Ma's life when he was four, when he learned the first measure of the Prélude to Suite No. 1 under his father's instruction. Ma has never lost his initial fascination.

“Bach's Cello Suites have been my constant musical companions,” Ma writes of the music. “For almost six decades, they have given me sustenance, comfort and joy during times of stress, celebration and loss. What power does this music possess that even today, after three hundred years, it continues to help us navigate through troubled times?”

Ma is more convinced than ever of the suites' ability to create shared meaning that extends far beyond the here and now. The suites' collective vision - at once divergent and coherent, empathic and objective - reminds us of all that connects us despite an increasingly discordant public conversation.

The August release of Six Evolutions also signals the beginning of a two-year, six-continent journey in which Yo-Yo Ma will devote himself to Bach's music, playing all six Cello Suites in a single setting in familiar and unlikely locations.

Six Evolutions - Bach: Cello Suites will not only offer an essential encapsulation of what this music means now to one of the world's most celebrated artists, it begins a new chapter in the cellist's 58-year relationship with this music.

Marking Leonard Bernstein's centenary, Sir Antonio Pappano conducts the American composer's three symphonies and Prelude, Fugue and Riffs. The Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia had a long association with Bernstein, who first conducted the orchestra in 1948. “I find these symphonies revelatory in the true sense of the word,” says Pappano. “They are hugely emotive and personal … At heart, Lenny was filled with the desire for the brotherhood of man to be something real and concrete … As a great Renaissance man, he was trying to make the world good.”

This recording of works for violin and piano/orchestra by Krzysztof Penderecki marks and celebrates the long and fruitful cooperation and friendship between Anne-Sophie Mutter and Krzysztof Penderecki on the occasion of his 85th birthday on 23 November 2018.

Deutsche Grammophon is releasing a double album showcasing a number of the composer's works for violin and piano or violin and orchestra, including La Follia, Duo concertante, Sonata No.2 and Metamorphosen. All of them feature the violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter, whose name is closely associated with that of Penderecki. Penderecki dedicated his Violin Sonata No.2 for Anne-Sophie Mutter, out of admiration for her interpretative skills, as have many other contemporary composers. The piece consists of five parts and is almost as long as the composer's concertos for violin. Anne-Sophie premiered the work together with Lambert Orkis, her longtime musician partner, at the Barbican in London on 29 April 2000 and has recorded it now for the first time. The recording of Duo concertante includes the young bass player Roman Patkoló as Anne-Sophie Mutter's partner. Patkoló was a student of the Anne-Sophie Mutter foundation.
