Dvořák - Rusalka, opera, B. 203 (Op. 114)
ID: GFO00709
CDs: 3
Type: CD
Subkolektion: Oper

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.

Ana María Martínez (Rusalka), Brandon Jovanovich (Prince), Tatiana Pavlovskaya (Foreign Princess), Mischa Schelomianski (Vodnik), Larissa Diadkova (Ježibaba), Natasha Jouhl (1st Nymph), Barbara Senator (2nd Nymph), Élodie Méchain (3rd Nymph), Diana Axentii (Kitchen Boy), Alasdair Elliott (Gamekeeper)

London Philharmonic Orchestra & The Glyndebourne Chorus, Jirí Belohlávek

Brian Elias - The House That Jack Built

Brian Elias - The House That Jack Built
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Kolektion: Orchestral Works

Brian Elias studied at London’s Royal College of Music with Humphrey Searle and Bernard Stevens and privately with Elisabeth Lutyens.

Brian was born in Bombay (Mumbai) and lived there until the age of thirteen.

His ballet The Judas Tree won an Olivier Award for Best New Dance Work and an International Emmy Award for Performing Arts.

Doubles was awarded the Best Orchestral prize at the 2010 British Composer Awards 2010 ‘Purely as psychodrama, The House is gripping. But what makes it really memorable is the clarity and vigour of Elias's orchestral writing. Humming throughout with perky rhythms, never cluttered, and full of imaginative ideas (including the 21st-century equivalent of the Pizzicato Polka), it struck me as among the best things that the 53-year old composer has penned.’ The Times (2002).

The bold and dazzlingly inventive The House That Jack Built - inspired by the rumbustiousness, games and jeers of the playground - is coupled with the elaborate, intense Doubles (a large orchestral work commissioned by the BBC Symphony Orchestra) and A Talisman, for bass-baritone and small orchestra which is based upon Hebrew text inscribed on a silver 19th century amulet - intended to protect against the Evil Eye - which was given to Elias's mother in 1969 by her uncle, whose family emigrated from Kurdistan to Bombay in the middle of the 19th century.
