Die Schöpfung by Joseph Haydn( )

38 editions published between 1986 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Haydn gave birth to a new type of oratorio that reflected perfectly the spirit of his time. With German texts, direct expression of feelings and many grand choruses, it stood for the transition from the aristocracy to a bourgeois society, in which music-making in a group was seen as an expression of civil pride. Extremely popular with amateur choirs, performances with a large ensemble became the rule until well into the 20th century. And the 1960 Electrola recording represents this tradition, with a top-class trio of soloists consisting of the great Elisabeth Grummer, outstanding tenor Josef Traxel and Gottlob Frick, "the blackest of all bass singers"

Taped at La Monnaie in Brussels in May 1998, this production of Monteverdi's L'Orfeo has become an operatic classic in a few short years. Choreographer/director Trisha Brown, conductor René Jacobs, and designer Roland Aeschlimann have created an ideal fusion of words, action, sight, and sound, one that never lets the viewer down and manages to tell the story in an elegant, unusual, and ultimately intensely moving manner

"The performances of the Missa solemnis at the Styriarte Festival in Graz and at the Salzburg Festival in summer 2015 were Nikolaus Harnoncourt's last concerts. After his retirement from the stage later that year, it was Mr. Harnoncourt's express wish that this album, made from the material captured at the Graz concerts and rehearsals, also be his last released recordings. Beethoven's late masterpiece has thus become the final chapter of an unparalleled discography spanning 65 years"--Container

Musik als Klangrede : Wege zu einem neuen Musikverständnis : Essays und Vorträge by Nikolaus Harnoncourt( Book )

80 editions published between 1982 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wenn Nikolaus Harnoncourt seine Sammlung von Aufsätzen, Vorträgen und Vorlesungen "Musik als Klangrede" nennt, bekennt er sich damit zur Wiedergewinnung beredten Musizierens, für das er selbst mit seinem Ensemble "Concentus musicus" seit 1953 wegbereitend gewirkt hat. Harnoncourt geht mit dem gegenwärtigen Musikleben streng ins Gericht: Es erscheint ihm als ein aufwendiges Ornament, um über die kulturelle Leere des Lebens hinwegzutäuschen. Dem stellt er die Rückbesinnung auf ein verstehendes Hören entgegen, mit dem Interpreten und Hörer gemeinsam versuchen, sich die vielen Sprachen und Stile der Musik vergangener Jahrhunderte wieder zugänglich zu machen. Doch er verordnet nicht etwa den nostalgischen Rückblick auf "originales" Barockspiel mit "historischen" Instrumenten: Hier ist Harnoncourt oft missverstanden worden. Vielmehr setzt er sich mit der Alten Musik, ihrer Spielweise und ihren Instrumenten auseinander, um Impulse für die heutige Musikpraxis zu gewinnen. Nikolaus Harnoncourt erläutert in diesem Buch die Grundprinzipien seiner musikalischen Praxis, die ihn in der gesamten Musikwelt berühmt gemacht haben. Dabei geht es ihm nicht um die museale Interpretation Alter Musik, sondern um eine moderne Interpretation der Meisterwerke der Vergangenheit, deren Impulse unsere Hörgewohnheiten auf neue Fundamente stellen.

"... es ging immer um Musik" eine Rückschau in Gesprächen by Nikolaus Harnoncourt( Book )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in German and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Musik schenkt Freude: Überzeugend und leidenschaftlich reflektiert Nikolaus Harnoncourt über sein Metier. Seine Texte, Reden und Gespräche entfalten das Lebensprogramm eines großen Künstlers, der auf sein eigenes Wirken und weit in die Musikgeschichte zurückblickt. Er befasst sich mit der Notwendigkeit der Kunst ebenso wie mit Haydn und einem "Krokodil namens Mozart", er macht sich Gedanken über romantische Einsichten und barocke Reminiszenzen. Harnoncourt blickt in die Abgründe einer unmoralischen Welt und lässt an Geschichten aus dem Musikverein teilhaben. Er erläutert, warum ein Künstler nicht lügen kann, warum die Zauberflöte ein ewiges Rätsel bleibt - und warum große Kunst letztlich aus Zweifeln entsteht
