Mozart - Don Giovanni (complete opera)
ID: OPD7080
Disk: 3
Type: CD
Podkolekce: Opera

Live performance, Rome, May 12, 1970. Features original artwork by Rafal Olbinski, re-mastered sound, and 76-page booklet with historic photos. Complete Italian-English libretto newly translated for this release, with an extensive essay on the history and interpretation of the opera. Don Giovanni is commonly considered Mozart’s finest opera, and is often nominated by connoisseurs as the greatest of all operas. The music is of the highest quality throughout; there is hardly a number from beginning to end that is not memorable in some way. And although there are facets of the story that have sparked ongoing controversy, the wide spectrum of its humanity is paramount.

Facing Goya puts science on the cultural stage through the music of Michael Nyman and the inspiration of one of the world’s greatest painters.

Facing Goya is a taut thriller that follows one woman’s passionate search for the 18th Century Spanish artist Goya’s missing skull. Her journey takes us into the dangerous world of racial stereotyping, gene therapy, cloning and humankind’s follies as seen through Goya’s paintings, etchings and captions. The idea for the opera arose from Michael Nyman’s fascination with the insidious study of craniometry that developed in the 1870s. Goya was regarded as one of the greatest painters of his time. Buried in Bordeaux, legend has it that he asked friends to ensure his head was removed prior to burial to prevent the early craniometrists and researchers of eugenics from getting hold of his brain.

“Facing Goya asks the question ‘if Goya’s skull was found, and if indeed, Goya was cloned, what would happen?’”

Michael Nyman - An opera in two acts (Libretto by Michael Hastings)

Michael Nyman - An opera in two acts (Libretto by Michael Hastings)
ID: MNRCD111_112
Disk: 2
Type: CD
Podkolekce: Opera

The tenth release on MN Records, and the second opera recording for the label, Love Counts is a love story between the unlikeliest of couples: Avril, a lecturer in mathematics at a major college who has divorced a man who physically abused her, and Patsy, a middle-weight fighter at the end of his career who cannot read or recognise numbers.

Michael Nyman uses Riemenschneider's collection of 371 Bach chorale harmonisations to help Patsy find his voice - they are harmonically fragmented, sped up, slowed down, overlaid with themselves. Just as Dr P, the Alzheimer's suffering protagonist of Nyman's The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat, has 'his' Schumann, so, in Love Counts, Patsy, a parallel sufferer, has 'his' Bach.

Award-winning writer Michael Hastings had previously worked with Nyman on the libretto for the opera Man and Boy: Dada, also available on MN Records.

Love Counts was commissioned by the Badisches Staatstheater, Karlesruhe, Germany and first performed there on 12th March 2005, directed by Robert Tannenbaum. This is a recording of the Almeida Theatre (London) production of Love Counts where it was performed in July 2006 by the Michael Nyman Band, bass baritone Andrew Slater and soprano Helen Williams, designed by Peter McKintosh and directed by Lindsay Posner.

R. Strauss - Der Rosenkavalier, Opera, Op. 59
ID: GFO01065
Disk: 3
Type: CD
Podkolekce: Opera

Recorded live at Glyndebourne on 30 May 1965.
Includes 3 discs in a 175 page hard-bound book.

This recording of Der Rosenkavalier captures the intimacy of the Glyndebourne opera house preserving what is, without doubt, an engrossing performance with notable contributions from key soloists at poignant stages of their careers.
This 1965 production, first staged by Glyndebourne in 1959, was not without its casting complications. Baron Ochs was to be Manfred Jungwirth but only sang two performances due to ill health and was replaced by Otto Edelmann.
Miss Caballé was ill for the first week of rehearsals and Edith Mathis arrived at Glyndebourne announcing that she was pregnant and was not be able to sing her August performances.
Many considered Der Rosenkavalier too big a production for Glyndebourne’s intimate house. Artistic director Carl Ebert, and conductor Fritz Busch, had entertained the possibility of mounting Der Rosenkavalier pre-war, using Strauss’ own reduced orchestral version but by 1959 the volume of the theatre had been increased considerably, and this production, was hailed as one of his finest achievements, in what was Ebert’s final year at Glyndebourne.
The recording captures a stellar cast. Not only is this Caballé’s sole recording as the Marschallin on disc but preserves her Glyndebourne debut, in the same year also singing the role of the Countess in Le nozze de Figaro. The Finanical Times observed: ‘‘First praise should perhaps go to the Marschallin of Montserrat Caballé... a beautiful voice... And an eloquent presence. The role lived in her.’’ Edith Mathis as Sophie was her second appearance at the Festival, the New Statesman lauding her role as ‘‘my own favourite is Edith Mathis’ wonderfully fresh Sophie’’.

Montserrat Caballé (Die Marschallin), Teresa Żylis-Gara (Octavian), Otto Edelmann (Baron Ochs auf Lerchenau), Edith Mathis (Sophie), David Hughes (Valzacchi), John Andrew (A Singer) & John Modenos (Herr von Faninal)

Britten - Peter Grimes, Opera, Op. 33

Britten - Peter Grimes, Opera, Op. 33
ID: GFO00800
Disk: 3
Type: CD
Podkolekce: Opera

Recorded live at Glyndebourne in June, July and August 2000.
Includes 3 discs in a 80 page hard-bound book.

Glyndebourne’s association with the music of Benjamin Britten extends back to the early 1940s. Benjamin Britten and Glyndebourne’s then Chairman John Christie were not obvious colleagues. They had very little in common. Both were from very different backgrounds, John Christie being a recipient of the Military Cross while Britten spent World War World II years in the US as a conscientious objector. Glyndebourne staged the premiere of The Rape of Lucretia in 1946 and in the following year, the premiere of Albert Herring. After this premiere, Britten commented of Christie as “a mischievous, mad old man”. Britten wasn’t invited back, and 34 years of the Glyndebourne Festival elapsed until another of his operas Midsummer Night’s Dream was staged in 1981. Glyndebourne has gone onto acclaimed productions of The Turn of the Screw, Billy Budd, Owen Wingrave, Death in Venice, Albert Herring and this acclaimed Trevor Nunn production of Peter Grimes from 2000.

Peter Grimes premiered in London in 1945 and was the first of Britten’s operas to be a critical and popular success. This 2000 Glyndebourne production is no exception. The role of Peter Grimes is amongst the toughest company on disc, with a heritage laid down by Peter Pears and Jon Vickers. In this recording Anthony Dean Griffey has the lyricism of Peter Pears and the weight and size of voice of Jon Vickers and above all is totally convincing in entering the mental state of Grimes. Vivian Tierney is an authoritative Ellen Orford, compassionate yet lonely and vulnerable, and likewise utterly convincing.

Anthony Dean Griffey (Peter Grimes), Vivian Tierney (Ellen Orford), Steven Page (Captain Balstrode), Susan Gorton (Auntie), Camilla Tilling (First Niece), Linda Tuvas (Second Niece), John Graham-Hall (Bob Boles), Stafford Dean (Swallow), Jard van Nes (Mrs Sedley), Wolfgang Ablinger-Sperrhacke (The Rev Horace Adams), Christopher Maltman (Ned Keene), Michael Druiett (Hobson) & Michael Haughey (Dr Crabbe)

Product Description
Le nozze di Figaro has been Glyndebourne's `signature' opera since the company was founded in 1934. To the social satire of Beaumarchais's original play da Ponte added the sparkling bustle of Italian intrigue, and Mozart a miraculous, fizzing score whose music rings variations on the pains, pleasure and follies of the human heart. This recording of the 1962 Glyndebourne production features a vintage cast with Heinz Blankenburg in the title role, Mirella Freni as Susanna, who had made her international breakthrough at Glyndebourne the previous summer.
**Rare recording of a Glyndebourne signature piece from the 1962 Festival with a vintage cast. **Le nozze di Figaro opened the first Glyndebourne Festival in 1934 and continues to be one of the most performed works at Glyndebourne. **Libretto translated from original Italian into English, French and German. **Extensive accompanying booklet including a commissioned article about the opera and a synopsis in English, French and German. **3 discs in 300-page hard-bound book.

Czech composer Bedrich Smetana is best known for his orchestral cycle My Country (Ma Vlast) featuring the ever-popular Moldau, and his opera The Bartered Bride. It is less known that the larger part of his output is written for piano solo. Smetana was a well known pianist of no mean powers. One of the first “Nationalistic” composers, he wrote many Polkas, the national dance of his homeland. These, often quite substantial, works are the Czech equivalent of Chopin’s Polonaises, or Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsodies.
This 2-CD set features the Complete Czech Dances (Book I and II), Souvenirs de Boheme, a selections from his beautiful cycle Dreams, and a few remarkable separate pieces.
Played with great understanding of the idiom by Czech pianist Antonin Kubalek, and Peter Schmalfuss.

Disk: 3
Type: CD
Podkolekce: Opera

Recorded live at Glyndebourne August 2009.
Includes 3 discs in a 76 page hard-bound book.

Lyric fairy tale in three acts: Libretto by Jaroslav Kvapil after Friedrich Heinrich Carl de la Motte Fouque's tale Undine. Dvorak's opera Rusalka reaches extraordinary heights of melodic eloquence. Rusalka is also the most consciously 'through-composed' of Dvorak's operas but this does not prevent Czech opera's most famous aria the ineffably beautiful 'Song to the Moon', being frequently extracted from the score and sung as a stand alone aria. Sometimes
thought of as a 'one aria opera', this is just one of many glorious arias for Rusalka, among them the moving first act plea, 'Your ancient wisdom everyone knows' ('Staleta moudrost tva vsechno vi'), made to the witch Jezibaba asking her to make her human, and her desolate lament 'Robbed of my youth' ('Mladosti sve pozbavena') at the start of Act 3. Rusalka is by no means a mainstay in the operatic oeuvre but this new 2009 production and recording from Glyndebourne is destined to put this much overlooked masterpiece to the forefront of romantic repertory.

The recording is aided by a stellar cast. Ana María Martínez's astonishing humanity shines through in her heart rending portrayal of Rusalka, burly tenor Brandon Jovanovich is
a handsome Prince, with real Slavic flavour added with Mischa Schelomianski as Rusalka's wise old father Vodnik, and Larissa Diadkova as the evil witch Jezíbaba, both
giving exemplary performances, with Czech conductor Jirí Belohlávek and the London Philharmonic Orchestra, giving the music a wonderful emotional intensity at all the right moments.

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra & The Glyndebourne Chorus, Vittorio Gui

3 discs in 200-page hard-bound book.

Pelléas et Mélisande was Claude Debussy’s only completed opera and the fantastical, imaginary world in which it is set, shimmers with Impressionist colour brought alive by his orchestral sound-world. The opera was first produced at Glyndebourne in 1962 as a tribute to Debussy’s centenary.
The highly acclaimed cast is led by Denise Duval, the pre-eminent French soprano of the day and artistic muse of Poulenc. The renowned conductor, Vittorio Gui, had known Debussy well - indeed Debussy’s stepdaughter attended the first night - and his performances attracted glowing reviews.
This recording is taken from the 1963 revival of the production and was to be the last time Artistic Director, Carl Ebert directed at Glyndebourne. Ebert worked at Glyndebourne for 30 years and of the vast body of his work, this production of Pelléas et Mélisande was considered, by many, to be his best ever.
Previously unreleased recording of Pelléas et Mélisande from the 1963 Glyndebourne Festival conducted by Vittorio Gui with Denise Duval.
This production was the last that Carl Ebert directed at Glyndebourne.
Recorded live at Glyndebourne in the summer of 1963.
Reviews and publicity expected in national newspapers, radio and specialist music magazines.
The first two Glyndebourne releases, Prokofiev’s Betrothal in a Monastery and Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro, were greeted with critical acclaim.
The 3 CDs are packaged as a hard bound book containing a full libretto translated from the original language in English, Italian and German along with a commissioned article about the opera, and a synopsis in English, French and German.
