(PL) Capella Cracoviensis CD Released: "Pergolesi - Adriano in Siria" (Nov 2016)

Contributed by admin on Dec 09, 2016

"Adriano in Siria, just like the remaining drammi per musica of Giovanni Battista Pergolesi, was in oblivion for two and a half centuries. In his time, the composer was a prominent figure on the musical scene of Naples. Today, when his work has been retrieved, the contemporary audience may find out that this neglect was utterly unjustified and admire Pergolesi’s artistry in composing. ...

(US) The Atlantic Article: "Searching for Lost Knowledge in the Age of Intelligent Machines" (by Adrienne Lafrance, 01 Dec 2016)

Contributed by admin on Dec 08, 2016

An interesting in-depth article on the evolution of search engines and what to expect in the near future. How the compilation of historical facts may be presented/offered by future search engines.
