Notebooks and conversations by Sviatoslav Richter( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout a life dedicated to music, Richter maintained a stubborn silence about his own ideals and aspirations. Here at last he opens up his heart, both in an exceptional interview, and in his private musical Journals." "Bruno Monsaingeon - renowned for his documentary films - became close to Richter not long before the pianist's death in 1995, and assembled the memories of his childhood, and his early career for the film on which this book is based. Richter recounts what it was like to be an 'artist of the people', his meetings with Russian performers and composers - Oistrakh, Rostoprovich, Gilels, Prokoviev, Shostakovich - and his rise to international acclaim." "The pianist's personal Journals, kept for nearly thirty years, constitute an unparalleled witness to the music of our time. He notes with precision, humour and clarity his reactions to concerts, operas, fellow musicians - even his own recordings. Richter is uninhibitedly himself. These are the private thoughts of a nonconformist, one of the greatest performers of the century, yet one whose life was bound inextricably to the history of the USSR."--Jacket

David Oïstrakh, the man violin, under Stalinist terror. "How ever hard I try, I can't recall ever having been without a violin during my childhood. I was three and a half when my father brought home a toy violin for me. As I played it I imagined I was a street violinist, a poor man's occupation that was widespread in Odessa at the time. But I could not imagine any greater happiness." The little prince adulated by his mother ("Do you know why he is so intelligent? Because, as a child, he bathed in my milk!") becomes for all of his fellow musicians "King David," a title he did not usurp. It is the violinist's story that Bruno Monsaingeon tells from his birth in Odessa in 1908 until his death from a heart attack, in Amsterdam in 1974. But it is a story marked by a wound, because it mostly takes place under Stalin. "I remain loyal to Russia, to the country, irrespective of who is in power." This choice, which his friend Shostakovich also made, has terrible consequences which combine fear and compromise. "The regime forced people to have two faces, to think in one way and to appear in another," says Rostropovich. Oïstrakh, who lives in dread of being arrested, becomes, in spite of himself, a propagandist for the regime. Until Stalin's death in 1953, he wasn't allowed to play on the other side of the Iron Curtain. But according to Rostropovich, who experienced this dark period: "For us music was the only window onto the sun, oxygen and life." Menuhin, Rostropovich and Rojdesvensky, who knew him well and played with him, talk of his "delightful" nature and of his incomparable talent which we are able to appreciate thanks to prodigious sound archives. The testimony of his son Igor, also a violinist and a great teacher, is just as precious because of what it reveals of the man. And there is a miraculous find: The telephone conversation recorded between Oïstrakh and Shostakovich after the violinist had premiered the same evening the Concerto No. 2 for Violin written for him by the composer. From his hospital bed Shostakovich had heard the concert on the radio. "Your interpretation is fantastic," he says to him. "I'm going to make you a foolish compliment: It's as if I had played it myself." Oïstrakh: the music man

Masterclass with Julia Varady by Bruno Monsaingeon( Visual )

4 editions published in 2009 in German and French and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2003, after a career spanning nearly forty years, Julia Varady discreetly retired from the public stage. She now dedicates her time to teaching. While for most great singers the transition from performing to teaching generally follows signs of vocal deterioration, Julia Varady's voice has never been so dazzling. She constantly sings in full voice during her classes, with the same intensity and generosity of spirit that made her one of the very finest lyric sopranos of our time. BONUS: The complete master class with Julia Varady. Selections from: Rossini's II barbiere di Siviglia, (Una voce poco fa) ; Ponchielli's La Gioconda, (Stella de l marinar!) ; Bizet's Carmen, (Habanera: l'amour est un oiseau rebelle) ; Massenet's Werther, (Werther! Werther) ; Mozart's La clemenza di Tito, (No.19, Aria Deh per questa istante solo), and Cosi fan tutte, (Come scoglio) ; Weber's Der Freischutz, (Wie nahte mir der Schlummer) ; Verdi's Nabucco (Oh , dischiuso e il firmamento!)
