The South Korean composer, born in 1978, studied in the UK and has made a name for himself in both in his native country and in Europe, regularly performing to sell-out audiences around the globe. Despite his definite celebrity status, his music remains resolutely simple and unpretentious; more in the style of short pop music songs than regular solo piano pieces, the very best of it can be enjoyed on this exciting 2CD release - which includes, among others, the hit River Flows In You, now a regular feature on wedding music albums. Jeroen van Veen, himself a prolific composer as well as renowned pianist, fell in love with Yiruma´s music on first hearing. As he explains in his liner notes, the music´s enduring popularity is down to its simplicity for player and listener alike. Not many classical composers can boast of having millions of fans, and millions of YouTube views to boot; Yiruma, however, effortlessly bridges the gap between popular and classical, and, most of all, allows the listener to relax and unwind. Brilliant Classics is proud to offer this new recording in the same month together with a new line of vinyl LP releases. With music by Pärt, Satie, Einaudi and other renowned minimalist composers making up the first two batches of vinyl, this exciting new development gives the listener a real opportunity to sit down and savour music just the way it used to be appreciated.

Illustrated with facsimile reproductions of Cash´s own handwritten pages. Now an album with music by Rosanne Cash, Brad Paisley, Willie Nelson, Kacey Musgraves, Elvis Costello, and more. Since his first recordings in 1955, Johnny Cash has been an icon in the music world. In this collection of poems and song lyrics that have never been published before, we see the world through his eyes and view his reflection on his own interior reality, his frailties and his strengths alike. In his hallmark voice, he pens verses about love, pain, freedom, and mortality, and expresses insights on culture, his family, his fame, even Christmas. Forever Words confirms Johnny Cash as a brilliant and singular American literary figure. His music is a part of our collective history, and here the depth of his artistry and talent become even more evident.

Born Declan Patrick MacManus, Elvis Costello was raised in London and Liverpool, grandson of a trumpet player on the White Star Line and son of a jazz musician who became a successful radio dance band vocalist. Costello went into the family business and had taken the popular music world by storm before he was twenty-four. Costello continues to add to one of the most intriguing and extensive songbooks of the day. His performances have taken him from a cardboard guitar in his front room to fronting a rock and roll band on your television screen and performing in the world´s greatest concert halls in a wild variety of company. Unfaithful Music describes how Costello´s career has somehow endured for almost four decades through a combination of dumb luck and animal cunning, even managing the occasional absurd episode of pop stardom. This memoir, written with the same inimitable touch as his lyrics, and including dozens of images from his personal archive, offers his unique view of his unlikely and sometimes comical rise to international success, with diversions through the previously undocumented emotional foundations of some of his best known songs and the hits of tomorrow. The book contains many stories and observations about his renowned co-writers and co-conspirators, though Costello also pauses along the way for considerations on the less appealing side of infamy.

Play Guitar, a new guitar method in two parts, offers for the first time the possibility of learning both playing strokes (apoyando = rest stroke, and tirando = free stroke) either simultaneously or successively. Play Guitar offers a wide choice of compostitions and arrangements, which should give even beginners access to the many stylistic ranges of guitar playing. Numerous illustrations with new perspectives make the technical procedures clear and exact in an easily comprehensible way. Additional workshops deal with blues and song accompaniment. Part 1 starts with one-voiced playing, in order to promote an awareness of melody and a feeling for rhythm. As Soon as the left hand fingers can be placed on the notes with minimal force, and the right hand fingers have learned a stability and sureness when playing , from a technical point of view the typical guitar arpeggios can be begun (this is an essentisl theme in Part 2)

Die gelangweilten Kinder der Superreichen suchen nach dem nächsten Kick: Luxus, Drogen und Partys. Diese Spirale dreht sich um den Dealer White Mike und steuert unaufhaltsam auf eine Katastrophe zu. Nick McDonell verfasste den Roman Twelve im Alter von 17 Jahren - er trifft damit genau den Ton der Teenager.

The story of how Las Vegas saved Elvis and Elvis saved Las Vegas in the greatest musical comeback of all time. The conventional wisdom is that Las Vegas is what destroyed Elvis Presley, launching him on a downward spiral of drugs, boredom, erratic stage behavior, and eventually his fatal overdose. But in Elvis in Vegas, Richard Zoglin takes an alternate view, arguing that Vegas is where the King of Rock and Roll resurrected his career, reinvented himself as a performer, and created the most exciting show in Vegas history. Elvis´s 1969 opening night in Vegas was his first time back on a live stage in more than eight years. His career had gone sour—bad movies, and mediocre pop songs that no longer made the charts. He´d been dismissed by most critics as over the hill. But in Vegas he played the biggest showroom in the biggest hotel in the city, drawing more people for his four-week engagement than any other show in Vegas history. His performance got rave reviews, ´´Suspicious Minds´´ gave him his first number-one hit in seven years, and Elvis became Vegas´s biggest star. Over the next seven years, he performed more than 600 shows there, and sold out every one. Las Vegas was changed too. The intimate night-club-style shows of the Rat Pack, who made Vegas the nation´s premier live-entertainment center in the 1950s and ´60s, catered largely to well-heeled older gamblers. Elvis brought a new kind of experience: an over-the-top, rock-concert-like extravaganza. He set a new bar for Vegas performers, with the biggest salary, the biggest musical production, and the biggest promotion campaign the city had ever seen. In doing so, he opened the door to a new generation of pop/rock performers, and brought a new audience to Vegas—a mass audience from Middle America that Vegas depends on for its success to this day. A classic comeback tale set against the backdrop of Las Vegas´s golden age, Richard Zoglin´s Elvis in Vegas is a feel-good story for the ages.
