Carmen by Georges Bizet( )

101 editions published between 1959 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 1,247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Esta versión de Carmen, es sin duda alguna maravilla. Las cualidades vocales de MVictoria de los Angeles, así como la interpretación desarrollada, la dirección orquestal y coral logradas, no son fáciles de encontrar en registros actuales. Por tanto es la mejor forma de conocer a Carmen. Como Carmen, Victoria De Los Ángeles da a oyente un cuadro claro de una mujer que sabe lo que desea y no tiene que gritar para conseguirlo. Ella tiene una voz excelente y se supera en una apasionada escena de muerte. Nicolai Gedda ofrece un magnífico Don José ; él es uno de los pocos tenores que canta el dúo con Micaela con verdadera dulzura

Symphonie fantastique by Hector Berlioz( )

13 editions published between 1958 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die unglückliche Liebe von Hector Berlioz zu einer Schauspielerin führte in nur 2 Monaten 1830 zur Komposition seiner Symphony fantastique. Sie gehört inzwischen zu den wohl populärsten Werken der klassischen Musik. Als "musikalisches Drama" mit dem Untertitel Episoden aus dem Leben eines Künstlers konzipiert, folgt das 5-sätzige Werk einem szenischen Programm, das bei der Uraufführung als Text an das Publikum verteilt wurde. Mit dieser revolutionären Neuorientierung der Form schuf Berlioz die Grundlage für das Genre der sinfonischen Dichtung, die im Lauf des 19. Jahrhunderts viele Meisterwerke hervorbrachte. Gekoppelt ist die Fantastische Sinfonie mit der viel gespielten, temperamentvollen Ouvertüre Römischer Karneval aus der Oper Benvenuto Cellini. Die Fantastische Sinfonie ist unverzichtbar für alle Bibliotheken, diese Interpretation von Jos van Immerseel und dem Ensemble Anima Eterna Brugge auf historischen Instrumenten ziert jeden Bestand
