Una discografia bàsica: els 100 enregistraments essencials

.

Amb l'aparició del seu número 100, la revista musical anglesa The Wire va publicar al juny del 1992 una discografia selectiva excepcional que considerem de gran valor com a recurs professional que pot ajudar a completar les col·leccions musicals de les nostres biblioteques públiques, motiu pel qual el volem destacar i difondre també des d'aquest bloc que s'adreça de forma especial al bibliotecari musical.

Presentem el document en format de simple llista. Pels interessats en llegir els comentaris corresponents que raonen cada selecció, us remetem al document original (en anglès) dins la website de la revista:

Director Wilkins ha dit...

Genial! Tota selecció es controvertible, i mai definitiva. Aquesta discografia té un fort equilibri entre l'agosarament i la responsabilitat, entre la diversitat i el focus.
M'ha encantat: és 100% recomanable per comandes.

Fonti ha dit...

Comparteixo la teva opinió. En bona part, els artistes i les obres escollides semblen també força indiscutibles. Hi ha obres que tenen bastant consens des de diferents punts de vista i penso que és bo que es publiquin aquestes seleccions.
Amb la consulta de les diferents obres de referència acaben apareixent algunes obres que sempre són destacades com excepcionals.

En el cas d'aquesta selecció, recomano vívament una lectura dels comentaris originals de cada disc escollit. Són arguments molt sòlids que ajuden a perfilar la nostra responsabilitat per decidir quina música es vol proposar des de la biblioteca pública.

Thanks 4 yor comments! ;-)
