James Lance Bass (born May 4, 1979) is an American pop singer, actor, film and television producer, and author. He grew up in Mississippi and rose to fame as the bass singer for the American pop boy band 'N Sync. 'N Sync's success led Bass to work in film and television. He starred in the 2001 film On The Line, which his company, Bacon & Eggs, also produced. Bass later formed a second production company, Lance Bass Productions, as well as a now-defunct music management company, Free Lance Entertainment, a joint venture with Mercury Records. After completion of 'N Sync's Pop Odyssey Tour, Bass moved to Star City, Russia in much publicized pursuit of a seat on a Soyuz space capsule. Bass was certified by both NASA and the Russian Space Program after several months of cosmonaut training, and planned to join the TMA-1 mission to the International Space Station. However, after his financial sponsors backed out, Bass was denied a seat on the mission.

A 'splendid' novel based on the rise and fall of the Browns, Arkansas siblings who became country music legends, by an award-winning author (Dallas Morning News). Late in 1959, the Brown siblings-Maxine, Bonnie, and Jim Ed-were enjoying unprecedented international success, rivaled only by their longtime friend Elvis Presley. They had a bona fide mega hit on their hands, which topped both the country and pop charts and gave rise to the polished sound of the multibillion dollar country music industry we know today. Mesmerized by the Browns' haunting harmonies, the Beatles even tried to learn their secret. Their unique harmony, however, was only achievable through shared blood, and the trio's perfect pitch was honed by a childhood spent listening for the elusive pulse and tone of an impeccably tempered blade at their parent's Arkansas sawmill. But the Browns' celebrity couldn't survive the world changing around them, and the bonds of family began to fray along with the fame. Heartbreakingly, the novel jumps between the Browns' promising past and the present, which finds Maxine-once supremely confident and ravenous in her pursuit of applause-ailing and alone. As her world increasingly narrows, her hunger for just one more chance to secure her legacy only grows, as does her need for human connection. Lyrical and nuanced, Nashville Chrome hits all the right grace notes with its vivid evocation of an era in American music, while at its heart it is a wrenching meditation on the complexities of fame and of one family-forgotten yet utterly unforgettable when reclaimed by Bass-who experienced them firsthand.

Quintetto Bottesini: Piano Quintets
22,90 CHF *

Louise Farrenc was a woman in a man's world: 19th-century musical Paris. Clara Schumann had previously been the only woman to be praised for her compositions and performances; it was generally considered that to earn money from music was a masculine pursuit. Farrenc not only achieved the near impossible of getting her music published, leading to Robert Schumann's praise of her work, but was awarded a piano professorship at the Paris Conservatoire. Compositions for piano formed a part of her oeuvre, alongside works for chamber ensemble and orchestra. These pieces gradually fell out of the repertoire and only began to be revisited towards the end of the 20th century. This special collection brings together Farrenc's two piano quintets, both scored for the slightly unusual forces of piano, violin, viola, cello and double bass. The works, both of which owe much to the inspiration of Hummel and Mendelssohn, provide a pleasing contrast to each other - the first being in the solemn key of A minor and the second in the sunnier E major. The musicality of the pieces provides ample proof for the 19th-century historiographer and musician François-Joseph Fétis's claim that Farrenc's mind had 'the conceptual strength of a consummate master'. The works are performed by acclaimed ensemble Quintetto Bottesini, founded in 2006 with the intent of rediscovering a rarely performed musical repertoire that brings together violin, viola, cello, double bass and piano. Other information: - Recorded in 2013. - Louise Farrenc (1804-1875) was one of the first succesful female composers in 19th century France. Born in a family of high artistic activity, she became an accomplished pianist (having had lessons with Moscheles and Hummel), eventually holding a professorship at the Paris Conservatoire. - Her two piano quintets (with double bass) are firmly rooted in the classical tradition of Schubert, Schumann and Mendelssohn. They are delightful, brilliantly scored works, full of instrumental virtuosity and melodic invention. - Played with enthousiasm and good humour by the Quintetto Bottesini. - Contains liner notes on the composer and works, ensemble biography and instrument specifications.
