Le prophète [opera in five acts by Giacomo Meyerbeer( Recording )

73 editions published between 1970 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Meyerbeer's grand operas once ruled the operatic world, but they're rarities today. With this performance the Met pulled out all the stops to show modern audiences what all the fuss was about. James McCracken is Jean of Lyden, a simple innkeeper who is proclaimed the Prophet and who leads a religious uprising in medieval Holland. During the turmoil he denounces his mother, Fidès (Marilyn Horne at her spectacular best), and his fiancé, Berthe (a passionate Renata Scotto), turns on him. The opera ends catastrophically but is filled with colorful music

Im Jahr 1918 wurde mit dem Verein für musikalische Privataufführungen in Wien eine neuartige und bis heute konzeptionell spannende Veranstaltungsform etabliert. Eine in der Repertoirepflege dominierende Praxis war jene der künstlerisch hochqualitativen Bearbeitung von groß besetzten Werken für Klavier und kleinere Ensembles. Diese historischen Voraussetzungen dienten als Inspiration für die vorliegende Produktion mit Werken von Gustav Mahler und Alban Berg, hier in einer Neuinterpretation durch drei Komponisten unserer Zeit. Rainer Riehn konnte aufgrund seiner Ergänzungen an Schönberg-Bearbeitungen von Mahler-Orchesterliedern eine reiche Erfahrung mit der Bearbeitungspraxis des Vereins gewinnen und interpretiert Mahlers Kindertotenlieder neu. Alban Bergs Violinkonzert, ein musikalisches Epitaph, wurde durch den Komponisten und Arrangeur Andreas N. Tarkmann für das Linos-Ensemble in eine neue Klanggestalt gebracht. Die kammerorchestrale Einrichtung der Altenberg-Lieder Bergs schließlich geht auf den dänischen Komponisten und Musiktheoretiker Diderik Wagenaar zurück

Carmen by Georges Bizet( )

8 editions published between 1974 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carmen is enticing, irresistible, and devastatingly fatal. Men can't resist her, but she refuses to be tied down. In Bizet's ever-popular opera, this leads to broken hearts, jealousy--and death. The composer expresses every nuance of the riveting title character in her music, and seldom has it been as superbly sung as the great Marilyn Horne does here. She is earthy, erotic, dangerous, and unforgettable. James McCracken is an explosive Don José, the poor soldier who gives up everything for Carmen, only to lose her in the end and seal his own fate
