Never-before-seen North Korea - a rare glimpse into the country behind the regime and the creativity behind the propaganda This incredible collection of prints dating from the 1950s to the twenty-first century is the only one of its kind in or outside North Korea. Depicting the everyday lives of the country´s train conductors, steelworkers, weavers, farmers, scientists, and fishermen, these unique lino-cut and woodblock prints are a fascinating way to explore the culture of this still virtually unknown country. Together, they are an unparalleled testament to the talent of North Korea´s artists and the unique social, cultural, and political conditions in which they work.
His father was an investigator who was murdered. Matthias Jones became an athlete and coach, but he solved his father´s murder. Hamilton College on the coast of New Hampshire hired him to coach sports, but getting into murder investigations remains his passion. He knows the cops and the district attorney Herbert Lane hates his guts. He´s best buds with Cocoa Stefani, a major underworld character and a good friend of parish priest, Father Jim Gallagher. Jones´ persistence gains him the upper hand over the cops and the DA - and the murderer. Mathias Jones´s longtime friend Leo Crowley is found dead under a concrete foundation at the Applegate Development in Hamilton, New Hampshire. Bonner Development´s unsavory owner Bobby Bonner becomes an immediate suspect because of his activities around the time of Leo´s murder. The belligerent attitude of Bonner´s construction superintendent Scott Gleason confronts Jones and Cocoa Stefani as they delve into the murder. Dennis Cruchek, who lured Leo out to the site, has disappeared, and Kim Rose, a tall blonde, is seemingly deeply involved in the development. Watching over the development is the pugnacious Red Kroc, a Bonner worker on the site who will pick a fight with anyone. As always District Attorney Herbert Lane tries to block Jones´ efforts. Jones finds love with his friend Frannie McShane but needs counseling from Father Gallagher when fate takes a turn for the worse. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robert P. Fitton.

WoO 27Clarinette(flûte, hautbois, violon) et basson (violoncelle)The present edition is based on the score published in the Complete Edition of 1864, which in its turn took as its source a print published by André in Offenbach circa 1830. An autograph or transcription has yet to befound. Whereas earlier Beethoven specialists traced the Duets back to the time of the Septet Op. 20, which was composed in 1799/1800, contemporary musicologists tend to believe that these works belong to Beethoven´s Bonn years before 1792. This view is supported by the fact that the voice leading of the clarinet (Duet l and 2 in C) is primarily in the clarino register whereasthe chalumeau register seems to be avoided. Only in two bars of Variation II in the third duet the g and e are reached in broken chords in the clarinet (in B flat)part. Thus the permanently high register of the clarinet part makes it equally practicable for a flute, oboe or violin.

Templar Commander Lieutenant Gero of Breydenbach is to flee to Germany with the ´´Head of Wisdom´´ to keep their secret. A truly fantastic journey begins. Suddenly he finds himself in 2004 - dependent on a fascinating young woman, who might help him to fulfill his mission...Perfectly researched. Historically accurate. Based on a real legend. An outstanding adventure.Bestselling author Martina André was born in 1961 in Bonn, Germany. She has published many successful works and is best known for her Templar novels.
