The River Tour 2016 is a concert tour by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band in support of Springsteen's 2015 The Ties That Bind: The River Collection box set. The nine week tour was announced on December 4, 2015, with tickets going on sale on December 11, 2015. This marks the first tour in two years for Springsteen and the E Street Band.
Each night of the tour will be mixed for release on as high-quality downloads and CDs. Recordings will be available within days of each performance. The River Tour has been extended as of January 24, 2016; with Las Vegas date being cancelled.
Springsteen released The Ties That Bind: The River Collection on December 4, 2015. The extensive box set features the original 1980 The River album along with many outtakes from those sessions. Along with the full album performance, select outtakes are also expected to be performed live, some possibly for the first time.
Unlike the previous few tours, the touring lineup will be downsized and will not feature a full horn section or backing vocalists. Each night of the tour will feature a full-length sequential performance of The River album, a practice that began during 2009's Working on a Dream Tour (albeit with other albums performed at different times). This will be the first tour in which all dates will feature the same album performed in its entirety.
The original River Tour began in October 1980 and continued through September 1981. With sets that regularly approached the four-hour range, the 140-date international tour firmly established a reputation for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band as marathon performers.

Brett Dean - Epitaphs, String Quartets Nos. 1 & 2 - Doric String Quartet, Allison Bell (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Brett Dean (b.1961)
Artist: Doric String Quartet, Allison Bell, Brett Dean
Title: Brett Dean - Epitaphs, Eclipse (String Quartet No. 1), String Quartet No. 2 ‘And once I played Ophelia’
Genre: Classical
Label: © Chandos Records
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: theCLASSICALshop
Duration: 01:01:05
Recorded: Potton Hall, Dunwich, Suffolk 27 and 28 April 2014 (Epitaphs, Eclipse) & 12 and 13 December 2014 (String Quartet No. 2)

Australian composer Brett Dean’s long professional life as a violist (he served 14 years in the Berlin Philharmonic) surely explains the highly refined mastery with which he writes for strings, even when employing extended techniques. The first movement of his String Quartet No. 1, Eclipse, begins with slow moving patterns that often use harmonics. Tremolos increasingly enter the landscape and reach a climax before launching into a jagged pizzicato episode. The second movement is vigorous and energetic, with hints of a jig and lots of microtonal interaction before concluding quietly. The almost panoramic stillness of the first movement permeates the third.
Based on texts by Matthew Jocelyn after Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Dean’s String Quartet No. 2 makes a stronger, more original impression in its first three movements, although again he opts for a slow, freeze-framed ending. The amazingly agile soprano soloist Allison Bell’s madcap quasi scatting, aspirated syllables, and astounding leaps into the vocal stratosphere work hand in glove with Dean’s looser, more uninhibited string writing.
Dean ends the string quintet Epitaphs more or less the same way as in the quartets, but there’s attractive material elsewhere, such as the fourth movement’s Bartókian asymmetry and colorfully varied bowings and articulations, and the first movement’s widely spaced melodic doublings between violin and cello flanking wiry inner-voice movement.
Given the composer’s supervising presence and, in the quintet, his actual participation as second violist, one assumes that the Doric String Quartet’s extremely accomplished and polished world-premiere recorded performances are as authoritative as you’ll get. Yet what ultimately closes the deal is Allison Bell’s phenomenal vocal artistry.

Big Brother & The Holding Company feat. Janis Joplin - Big Brother & The Holding Company (1967/2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Artist: Big Brother & The Holding Company feat. Janis Joplin
Title: Big Brother & The Holding Company
Genre: Rock, Blues-Rock, Rock & Roll, Acid Rock, Psychedelic Rock, Hard Rock
Label: © Columbia Records
Release Date: 1967/2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 27:53
Recorded: December 12–14, 1966 in Chicago, Illinois

Six months before becoming an overnight sensation following a blistering set at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival, Big Brother was an unknown group from San Francisco playing a month-long Chicago club engagement. The band, made up of bassist Peter Albin, drummer David Getz, and guitarists James Gurley and Sam Andrew, was completed when the quartet was introduced to singer Janis Joplin by mutual friend Chet Helms.
When their gig was cut short, Big Brother avoided returning to California when Bob Shad signed the group to Mainstream Records, his small, struggling jazz label. The three-day recording session in December 1966 resulted in a set of mostly original songs, with the exception of New York City street musician Moondog's 'All Is Loneliness' and a more secular arrangement of the gospel standard 'Down on Me.' Despite Joplin's fiery singing style, Big Brother was still the kind of democracy in which Joplin shared vocals with Sam Andrew on the trippy 'Light Is Faster Than Sound' and the more soulful duet 'Call on Me.' But most of this record featured Joplin reaching back and channeling her hero Big Maybelle on songs like the brassy 'Women Is Losers' and the no-nonsense 'Intruder.'

Cheap Thrills is a studio album by American rock band Big Brother and the Holding Company. It was their last album with Janis Joplin as lead singer. For Cheap Thrills, the band and producer John Simon incorporated recordings of crowd noise to give the impression of a live album, which it was subsequently mistaken for by listeners. Only the final song, their cover of "Ball and Chain", had been recorded live at The Fillmore in San Francisco ... In 2003, Cheap Thrills was ranked #338 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. The magazine previously ranked it #50 on their Top 100 Albums of the Past 20 Years list in 1987. It is also listed in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. On March 22, 2013, the album was deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" by the Library of Congress and thus it was preserved into the National Recording Registry for the 2012 register.

"This is an invitation: an invitation to join me in an adventure. It would normally take place in the concert hall, because the combination of pieces I’m presenting to you here is not a typical programme for a CD. It’s an overwhelming recital that demands a great deal not only from me as the musician, but also from you as the audience. When I play this recital in a concert setting, which I’ve done on many occasions, I always find it to be a battle, where I’m reaching for my own limits and for the audience’s limits. But this is a constructive battle. The battle is the pathway and at the end of it we’re in a better place. From the stage, I can take the audience by the hand as stunning beauty alternates with uncomfortable and what can even be almost ugly sounds.
These are exactly the pieces I wanted to record. This is a highly personal program. It’s a program of contradictions: the ostensible simplicity of Biber and Bach contrasting with the complexity of Bartók and Berio. It’s emotional but at the same time highly cerebral.
Bach’s Chaconne is the focal point, to which the works of Bartok and Berio make strong references , making it the core of this programme. Biber’s Passacaglia provides focus, with its persistent repeated cadence of the four falling notes. This pulse underpins the entire recital: sometimes hidden and barely audible, like a sort of primeval pulse (as in the Berio), and sometimes quite clear. Bartók’s Sonata is a real masterpiece, It’s the pinnacle of what is possible on the violin, without having virtuosity as its objective. The consonance – or actually the battle – between two notes lies at the heart of Berio’s Sequenza VIII. This also presents us with a degree of ugliness. But after the powerful confrontations, as the music gradually subsides in volume these two notes end up forming a brotherly union. The battle has led to some good after all." --Liza Ferschtman

Hector Berlioz - L'Enfance du Christ - London Symphony Orchestra, Sir Colin Davis (2007) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Hector Berlioz (1803-1869)
Artist: London Symphony Orchestra, Sir Colin Davis
Title: Berlioz - L'enfance du Christ (1850-1854)
Genre: Classical, Oratorio
Label: © LSO Live

Recorded live in DSD, 2 and 3 December 2006 at the Barbican, London

Described as a ‘sacred trilogy’, Berlioz’s oratorio L’enfance du Christ began as a short piece called Shepherds’ Farewell. It tells the story of the birth of Jesus and the journey of the Holy Family as they escape Bethlehem and head across Egypt to the city of Saïs. Unlike many of the composer’s more flamboyant works, it is an exquisite and gentle composition scored for relatively small forces.

Ludwig van Beethoven - Triple Concerto & Archduke Trio - Storioni Trio, The Netherlands Symphony Orchestra, Jan Willem de Vriend (2013) High-Fidelity DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz

Сomposer: Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
Artist: Storioni Trio, The Netherlands Symphony Orchestra, Jan Willem de Vriend
Title: Beethoven - Triple Concerto & Archduke Trio
Genre: Classical
Label: © Challenge Records | Northstar Recordings
Release Date: 2013
Quality: DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz

Duration: 01:11:00
Recording location: Muziekcentrum Enschede Triple Concerto), Evangelisch Lutherse church Haarlem (Archduke Trio)
Recording dates: 2-3 July 2012 (Triple Concerto), 8-9 October 2012 (Archduke Trio)

The piano trio was the ensemble type with which Beethoven opened his series of works published with opus numbers in Vienna in 1795. In his Triple Concerto, published as Opus 56, Beethoven confronts this genre with a large orchestra. Anton Schindler, since 1822 Beethoven’s self-named secretary and also his first, sadly all too often untrustworthy biographer, stated that the piano part of the trio instrumentation was specified for Archduke Rudolf; but the facts do not support this. The Archduke was only sixteen years young when the work was written around 1804, a year marked by the composition of the Third and Fifth Symphonies, Fidelio and the “Appassionata”, and when the Triple Concerto was put to print in 1807 the piece was dedicated not to a schoolboy from the Imperial House, but to another member of the high nobility and confidant of the composer, Prince Lobkowitz.
