China 1911: Die chinesische Bevölkerung leidet unter der Herrschaft der seit 250 Jahren regierenden Qing-Dynastie. Hunger, Armut und unzureichende politische Reformen spalten das Land. Die Kaiserwitwe Longyu (Joan Chen) und ihr siebenjähriger Sohn reagieren auf die aufkeimenden Aufstände der Bevölkerung gnadenlos und stellen unter der weiteren Ausbeutung des bereits geschröpften Landes eine ´neue Armee´ auf. Huang Xin (Jackie Chan) und Sun Yat Sun (Winston Chao) sind die Anführer der Revolution und führen gemeinsam eine zunehmend verzweifelte Serie von bewaffneten Aufständen gegen die mächtige Qing-Dynastie. Mit einem unmenschlichen Willen gelingt es den Revolutionären schließlich die Qing-Dynastie und damit die seit 2000 Jahren bestehende Monarchie zu stürzen. Eine Republik wird geboren.

Emile Joseph Trognée was born in Tirimon,in Belgium, on 4th July 1868. He studied trumpet at the Brussels Conservatoire. After winning a European competition in 1902, he became solo trumpet and cornet at the Mariinskiy opera theatre in St. Petersburg (the theatre is now the Kirov and the city is now Leningrad). He spent the rest of his life in Russia, working at the Mariinskiy for 25 years. Trognée was an outstanding musician. A weil known Soviet conductor, Karl Eliasberg, wrote: Trognée had a unique feeling of ensemble; his playing was remarkable for accurate dynamics and for an infallible sensitivity towards the meaning and character of the musical phrase. His sound was never forced but always bright, powerful and even in ail registers. He was also a great master of very soft sound production (without-using the tongue). He was noted for his performances of Wagner´ s Ring of the Nibelun´gen, Rienzi and Lohengrin and of operas by Tchaikovsky and Verdi.» Trognée was recognised by both performers and composers. He advised RimskyKorsakov to make some changes in the trumpet parts of his opera The Legend of the Invisible City of Kitezh (the weil known difficult trumpet phrase in the symphonic picture The Battle at Kerzhenets). He taught at the Baltic Fleet music school from 1911 to 1917 and at the Leningrad Rimsky-Korsakov special music school from 1928 to 1941.He wrote several works for trumpet and cornet. His Fantasia-Caprice, which appeared in Tabakov´s Elementary Progressive Trumpet Tu-tor, published in Moscow in 1946, was especially popular for many years. His Studies for Trumpet, published in Leningrad by the state publisher Triton in 1932 and dedicated to Tabakov, are also weil known. The studies presented in this edition were written at various times but not published during Trognée´s lifetime. After his death in Leningrad in 1942 they were preserved by the Soviet trumpeter, composer and teacher Sergey Bolotin. This edition of Trognée´ s studies gives us an opportunity to study the work of someone who, like Vasiliy Wurm, Vasiliy Brandt and Oskar Böhme, made a great contribution to the history of the trumpet in Russia.Anatoly Selyanin
We have all seen, whether live, in photographs or on postcards, some of Claude Monet´s legendary water lily paintings. They are in museums all over the world and are among the most beloved works of art of the past century. Yet, ironically, these soothing images were created amid terrible personal turmoil and sadness. The extraordinarily dramatic history behind the creation of these paintings is little-known; Ross King´s new audiobook tells that story for the first time and, in the process, presents a compelling and original portrait of one of our most beloved artists. King tells the full history of the special circumstances in which Monet created the Water Lilies. As World War I exploded within hearing distance of his house at Giverny, he was facing his own personal crucible. In 1911, aged 71, his adored wife, Alice, died, plunging him into deep mourning. A year later he began going blind. Then his eldest son, Jean, fell ill and died of syphilis, and his other son was sent to the front to fight for France. Within months a violent storm destroyed much of the garden that had been his inspiration for some 20 years. At the same time, his reputation was under attack, as a new generation of artists, led by Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse, were dazzling the art world and expressing disgust with Impressionism. Against all this, fighting his own self-doubt, depression, and age, Monet found the wherewithal to construct a massive new studio, 70 feet long and 50 feet high, to accommodate the gigantic canvases that would, he hoped, revive him. Using letters, memoirs, and other sources not employed by other biographers, and focusing on this remarkable period in the artist´s life, Ross King reveals a more complex, more human, more intimate Claude Monet than has ever been portrayed and firmly places his water lily project among the greatest achievements in the history of art. 1.
