Best Albums of 2013

The music we loved between January and December of 2013 was likely recorded over a series of months or years. The trail of the intense recordings released this year will disperse and be recognized later in the work of comers. You will disagree with the particulars of my 2013 lists because you’re you. My me is here: this Spotify playlist contains songs I like that Spotify hosts. It is not comprehensive, but it’s what we can do. You can argue about the weighting of any music I listed—I have little interest in that bit, as the albums list makes clear. The year’s first-half standouts—Daft Punk’s maddening but immovable “Random Access Memories,” West’s alpha self-challenge “Yeezus,” and Queens of the Stone Age’s firm and infallible “…Like Clockwork”—bear traces of people who grew up with some kind of Great Album narrative.

Thurston Moore's 38 Favourite Songs Of All Time / Features / Music News from THE FLY - The UK's Most Popular Music Magazine. Symphony guide: Dvořák's Eighth. So much of the symphonic thinking of the late 19th century is bound up with doing so many things at the same time, through densities of structure and motive, of harmony and counterpoint, that some of the most obvious yet hardest things to achieve in music can get forgotten in a complex symphonic maelstrom of ideas and technicalities.

Symphony guide: Dvořák's Eighth

I'm talking about the art of writing tunes: not just any old tunes, either, but composing a whole symphony that teems with tunes that appeal straight to the musical pleasure zones of any listener, but which can also carry and create a whole symphonic edifice.

The Mikado

S. Gilbert, their ninth of fourteen operatic collaborations. It opened on 14 March 1885, in London, where it ran at the Savoy Theatre for 672 performances, which was the second longest run for any work of musical theatre and one of the longest runs of any theatre piece up to that time.[1][n 1] Before the end of 1885, it was estimated that, in Europe and America, at least 150 companies were producing the opera.[2] The Mikado remains the most frequently performed Savoy Opera, and it is especially popular with amateur and school productions. The work has been translated into numerous languages and is one of the most frequently played musical theatre pieces in history.

Setting the opera in Japan, an exotic locale far away from Britain, allowed Gilbert to satirise British politics and institutions more freely by disguising them as Japanese.

Tosca (Italian pronunciation: [ˈtɔska]) is an opera in three acts by Giacomo Puccini to an Italian libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa.


It premiered at the Teatro Costanzi in Rome on 14 January 1900. The work, based on Victorien Sardou's 1887 French-language dramatic play, La Tosca, is a melodramatic piece set in Rome in June 1800, with the Kingdom of Naples's control of Rome threatened by Napoleon's invasion of Italy. It contains depictions of torture, murder and suicide, as well as some of Puccini's best-known lyrical arias, and has inspired memorable performances from many of opera's leading singers.

Puccini saw Sardou's play when it was touring Italy in 1889 and, after some vacillation, obtained the rights to turn the work into an opera in 1895. Turning the wordy French play into a succinct Italian opera took four years, during which the composer repeatedly argued with his librettists and publisher.
