Tra biografia e racconto d'armi, le vite di John Hawkwood, soldato inglese ribattezzato Giovanni Acuto, e dei condottieri al soldo. Attraverso la vita eccezionale di colui che è stato il più grande, stimato e temuto condottiero al soldo dei fiorentini, l'autore descrive le esistenze dei cavalieri e guerrieri mercenari, l'apprendistato delle armi, la struttura delle compagnie, il rapporto con la gente e i committenti, il denaro, gli strumenti del mestiere e la trasformazione delle compagnie di ventura in eserciti regolari. …

What can i say, The 3rd Hawkwood book and they go from strength to strength, The attention to historical detail is amazing and it feels like you are there, The atmosphere of the prison hulks is captured briliantly. The day the book was delivered i began and 16hrs later sadly i had come to the end, When's the next due? Not much of Jago in this but Lasseur more than makes up for that, Will we see him again?. I know this is meant to be a review but i'm sure others will do that so i'll just enthuse. If your new to Hawkwood i recommend starting with Ratcatcher always start at the beginning, but you wont regret the money spent, Richard Sharpe watch out your history.

With his symphonies the Danish composer Rued Langgaard offered 16 vastly different versions of what a symphony can be. His captivating, complex genius made room for all conceivable idioms and a wealth of styles ranging from the grandiosely Late Romantic to the purest Absurdism. This box is the first collected recording of Langgaard's 16 symphonies based on the critical edition of the scores; recordings which demonstrate, with spectacular sound quality, Langgaards masterly grasp of the orchestra and his ecstatic view of art: "Mr. Dausgaard's keen advocacy elicits polished, persuasive accounts that live up to Langgaard's motto: 'Long Live Beauty'", wrote The New York Times.

Recordings of Beethoven's Triple Concerto, Op. 56, by a piano trio rather than by a group of virtuosi (a configuration that almost always misunderstands the work) are not abundant. Still rarer are those like the present release by the Storioni Trio, a Dutch group that takes its name from the maker of the 1790s instrument played by the violinist (and strung, like the viola, with gut strings). Pianist Bart van de Roer plays an 1815 Lagasse fortepiano. This recording is part of a series devoted to Beethoven's piano trios, but the Triple Concerto actually is more comfortable in those surroundings than when forced to keep company with the likes of the Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 61.

ISBN: 1846030773 | edition 2007 | PDF | 68 pages | 21 mb

Originally hired by wealthy Italian city states to protect their assets during a time of ceaseless warring, the Condottiere of the Italian peninsula became famous for his wealth, venality and amorality during the 14th century.
The Condottieri's pursuit of profit meant they were prepared to change sides for the right price, even during battle, and they prospered, becoming both powerful and rich in the process. Leaders such as John Hawkwood, with his famous 'White Company', became major political figures.
