Sylvain Cambreling is one of the leading French operatic conductors. He is known for his often startling innovations in many opera productions: in a performance of Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro at the 2001 Salzburg Festival he employed a synthesizer to deliver recitative accompaniments, and at a performance of Janácek's Katya Kabanova, he used some of the composer's songs as transitional material between acts.

Michel Plasson is one of the most important French conductors from the later twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. He is well known for his interpretations of French opera, particularly those of Gounod and Massenet. He has also received praise for his work in the choral music of Duruflé and Fauré, and the orchestral works of Magnard, Ravel, and other French composers.

EAC | FLAC (image+.cue, log) | Covers Included | 66:15 | 288 MB
Genre: Classical, Choral | Label: Harmonia Mundi | Catalog: 501608

This is a rather brisk reading of Brahms' masterpiece, the most ambitious work in his output and one of the greatest compositions of its type. Though Herreweghe's tempos often pushed the music to its limits here (except for the first section), the performance never actually sounded fast, or at least not offensively fast. In fact, it challenges the Levine/RCA effort.

Adriano Falcionis recordings on Brilliant Classics of a diverse repertoire, from Couperin to Bruhns to Franck, reveal an uncommonly versatile artist, and one who relishes the colouristic possibilities of each particular instrument at hand: he has recorded the complete sonatas of Alexandre Guilmant on a richly caparisoned, eminently suitable four-manual organ from 1897 by Carlo Vegezzi-Bossi, who was one of the foremost Italian builders around the turn of the last century.

The French conductor François-Xavier Roth was born in France in 1971 and studied at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique. In October 2000 he won joint first prize at the Donatella Flick Conducting Competition in London, following which he was appointed for two seasons assistant conductor with the London Symphony Orchestra. From 2000 to 2002 he was also assistant conductor with the Caen Orchestra. In 2003 François-Xavier Roth created the chamber orchestra Les Siècles (The Centuries), combining period and modern instruments, an orchestra which covers a vast repertoire from Baroque to contemporary music.

"Paris-based Quatuor Ebene has released three classics of the French repertoire, the quartets of Debussy, Ravel, and Faure. Although the works are frequently grouped together on recordings, they inhabit vastly different aesthetic worlds and are more notable for their individuality than their similarity…

Warm, lyrical, and aristocratic in his interpretations, Artur Rubinstein performed impressively into extremely old age, and he was a keyboard prodigy almost from the time he could climb onto a piano bench. He came from a mercantile rather than a musical family, but fixated on the piano as soon as he heard it. At age three he impressed Joseph Joachim, and by the age of seven he was playing Mozart, Schubert, and Mendelssohn at a charity concert in his hometown.

Colin Davis is arguably the finest Berlioz conductor in the world; both of his recordings of Les Troyens are magnificent and elsewhere he's rarely bettered. His winning streak continues with this live performance with the LSO of Harold in Italy and the ballet music from Troyens. Tabea Zimmermann's solo viola is as grand, brilliantly flavorful, and picturesque as the LSO's playing; and the entire performance swift and rhythmically propulsive is simply fantastic.

This recording presents an unusual pairing of the complete string quartets by Szymanowski and Debussy. Szymanowksi is one of Poland’s most famous composers. Influences on his style are many (Bartók’s percussive and motoric drive, Ravel’s coloristic sonorities) but he found his own personal language, lush, opulent, rich and sometimes exotic, always expressing a deep emotional content. Debussy’s string quartet dates from his early years, a beautiful and romantic work, the French answer to Wagner’s richly chromatic language.

Elmas was born into a family of wealthy entrepreneurs in Smyrna (now İzmir), a city in the Ottoman Empire. It was soon discovered that the little boy was a child prodigy: he began taking piano lessons and writing short piano pieces under the tutelage of a local music teacher, Mr. Moseer, and already at the age of thirteen, the young virtuoso performed an all-Liszt piano recital…

The myth of Orpheus and Eurydice is one of opera's most potent archetypes, the subject of the earliest experiments in the genre by Peri and Monteverdi. But Offenbach's wickedly witty operetta uses it as a vehicle to lampoon stuffy artistic conventions as well as the social and political realities of Paris in the Second Empire. In this sublimely ridiculous scenario, Eurydice is a flighty flirt only too happy to be separated from husband Orpheus, a dullard violin teacher, when Pluto kidnaps her into his realm.

Musical politics can be about as nasty as the other sort. Willi Boskovsky was born in 1909, joined the violin section of the Vienna Philharmonic in 1932, became a co-leader in 1939 and took over the traditional New Year’s Day Concerts after the death of Clemens Krauss in 1954. With his natural style and elegance (conducting from the violin) he seemed the ideal person to take the New Year’s Day Concerts out of the confines of Austria and into the world of Eurovision, and by the late seventies it looked as if he would be conducting them for all eternity.

De levensgeschiedenis van Josef Lanner (1801-1843) is niet zo kleurrijk als die van de leden van de Straussfamilie. Bovendien is er nog niet zo veel over bekend. Pas in 1994 verscheen in Wenen een betrouwbare biografie en een oeuvrecatalogus met daarin zo'n 300 werken. De populariteit van Johann Strauss (1804-1849) strekte zich uit over heel Europa terwijl die van Lanner beperkt bleef tot Graz, Mailand en Br³nn. In de jaren dertig van de vorige eeuw waren Strauss en Lanner beiden aktief in Úen van de meest populaire danslokalen in Wenen.
