Anna Vinnitskaya has now joined Alpha Classics. Her first recording for the label is devoted to one of her repertories of choice: the concertos of Shostakovich.'When I performed the Second Piano Concerto for the first time at the age of eleven, his music seemed very optimistic to me. Only later did I understand everything else that is concealed behind the "façade" of Shostakovich's music.'[The Russian pianist reveals two facets of the composer's music on this disc by juxtaposing the First Piano Concerto in C minor op. 35, an 'insolent' composition with a kaleidoscope of atmospheres and stylistic registers (Russian Romanticism, American jazz, neoclassicism) that constantly surprise the listener, and the more traditional Concerto in F major, which radiates youthful high spirits.] A pupil of Sergey Ossipenko at the Serge Rachmaninoff Conservatory, then of the great Evgeni Koroliov at the Musikhochschule in Hamburg, Anna Vinnitskaya won the Leonard Bernstein Prize, but it was her First Prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels in 2007 that launched her career. For this recording, Anna Vinnitskaya is surrounded by partners of the front rank: the famous Kremerata Baltica, regarded as one of the most creative ensembles on today's musical scene, and the prestigious wind players of the Staatskapelle Dresden

The story: Act I. The action unfolds on Cyprus, under Venetian rule in the 16th century. The scene is outside the castle, residence of Otello, governor of the island, facing the port. It is night. A furious storm churns the sea, and a crowd of Venetian citizens and soldiers helplessly watch while the ship of the Moor Otello desperately tries to make it into port. Only Iago, one of Otello's men, does not participate in the general apprehension for the safety of his leader: he hates Otello, because Otello has promoted Cassio captain instead of him; he meditates revenge. The crowd is jubilant as Otello finally lands safely and announces that the Turkish fleet has been defeated. When the Moor enters the castle, the fireworks start and all drink to his victory. In the midst of the rejoicing, Iago starts to weave the scheme that will lead to his commander's downfall: he treacherously insinuates to Roderigo, who had revealed to Iago his love for Otello's wife, Desdemona, that Captain Cassio also feels the same affection for the woman. Then Iago gets Cassio drunk, and incites a fight between the two men, but the dangerous duel that starts between them is stopped by Montano. However, the peacemaker is wounded by Cassio. Iago sounds the alarm, swelling the episode out of proportion until the crowd is in tumult. Called back by the shouts and noise, Otello, falsely informed by Iago, punishes Cassio and demotes him. This is a first victory for Iago, who exults

Thaïs by Jules Massenet( Recording )

38 editions published between 1970 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Take one ascetic monk named Athanaël and one ravishingly beautiful courtesan named Thaïs, add Massenet's sensual, melodious music, with equal dashes of eroticism and religious fervor--and you have a powerful opera that is at once a celebration of the sacred and the profane, of flesh and soul. This rarity had not been heard at the Met for almost 40 years when it was brought back as a vehicle for the great soprano Beverly Sills and the magnetic singing actor Sherrill Milnes. Together, they masterfully bring to life the searing conflict at the heart of the drama

Don Giovanni by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Visual )

1 edition published in 1979 in Italian and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Watch Joseph Losey's remarkable adaptation of one of Mozart's most famous operas: Don Giovanni. This marvelous production created in 1979 recounts the legend of Don Juan, the libertine seducer. Don Giovanni is the result of Mozart's second collaboration with the mercurial librettist Lorenzo da Ponte. It draws its inspiration from Molière's Don Juan, a play that Mozart knew almost by heart. As Mozart said it himself, it is an opera buffa. Don Giovanni was ordered to Mozart by the Teatro di Praga which had just hosted the successful Le Nozze di Figaro. Both opera were played by the same company: the company Bondini. Don Giovanni was premiered in 1787. Legend has it that the overture had been composed by Mozart the night before the premiere in only three hours. Argument This opera deals with the libertine seducer Don Giovanni, who, helped by his assistant Leporello, seduces and abandones young women. As he tries to seduce Donna Anna, her father, Il Commendatore, interposes. Don Giovanni kills him in a duel. Nonetheless, he continues his conquests and tries to seduce a new girl, Zerlina, who is about to marry Masetto. Don Giovanni is pursued by Donna Elvira, whom he neglected (she still has feelings for him). In an attempt to escape his victims, he requires Leporello to exchange their identity. In the second act, Don Giovanni is in a cemetery at night when a voice from a statue asks him to leave the dead in peace. He invites the statue to dinner. The statue, which is in fact Il Commendatore, shows up at Don Giovanni's. Grabbing the hand of Don Giovanni, the statue asks him to repent. Don Giovanni refuses and is engulfed in the flames of hell. I believe that Don Giovanni is a piece of rebellion, if not revolution... (Joseph Losey) The film Joseph Losey's film adaptation combines Mozart's original work with his own reading of the opera. It is an encounter of two imaginary worlds. The first world is personal, it presents Joseph Losey's own image of the character, while the second one is universal: the fruit of Western music. Don Giovanni is played and sung in Italian, the libretto's original language. The cast is international, composed of artists of many countries, and starring such great names as Ruggero Raimondi, Kiri Te Kanawa, Teresa Berganza, Edda Moser and José van Dam. The film is played in the decor of the Palladio villas near Vicenza, monumental constructions of the 16th century which are both strict and baroque. Losey banishes the limits of the stage and favors an authentic decor. We are creating a new form. A real film, set in real locations with people acting out a real story which is told cinematically and in words as well as in music... (Joseph Losey)
