There's passion and drama galore in Tchaikovsky's rich setting of Pushkin's chilling novel of obsession. Dashing Dmitri Hvorostovsky is Prince Yeletsky, engaged to Lisa (Galina Gorchakova) who is also loved by Gherman (Plácido Domingo at his most romantically impassioned). Lisa's grandmother, the old Countess (Elisabeth Söderström) had been given the secret of winning at cards, and when Gherman tries to force it out of her at gun point, she dies of fright. After Lisa commits suicide, the old Countess's ghost gets even with Gherman. Valery Gergiev leads a mega-watt performance

Das Lied von der Erde by Gustav Mahler( Recording )

58 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der deutsche Bariton Christian Gerhaher ist zweifellos einer der besten Liedsänger der Welt. Auf seiner neuen CD widmet er sich gemeinsam mit Kent Nagano und dem Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal sowie Klaus Florian Vogt, Tenor, erstmals Mahlers berühmtem Werk "Das Lied von der Erde", seiner Vertonung von sieben Gedichten für Tenor, Alt und Orchester, laut Mahlers eigenem Bekunden "das Persönlichste, was ich je geschrieben habe". Das Werk komponierte Mahler 1907, einem Jahr, in dem sein Leben durch mehrere schwere Schicksalsschläge (dem Tod seiner Tochter, dem Rücktritt als Direktor der Wiener Hofoper und eigener Krankheit) gezeichnet war. Christian Gerhaher, Klaus Florian Vogt und dem Orchester unter Nagano gelingt es, die Tiefen und die Farbigkeit von Mahlers Werk in allen Details auszuloten. Nr. 1 Das Trinklied vom Jammer der Erde: Allegro pesante Nr. 2 Der Einsame im Herbst: Etwas schleichend. Ermüdet Nr. 3 Von der Jugend: Behaglich heiter Nr. 4 Von der Schönheit: Comodo. Dolcissimo Nr. 5 Der Trunkene im Frühling: Allegro Nr. 6 Der Abschied: Schwer

When Phyllis falls in love with the shepherd Strephon, she doesn't know that he is the product of a marriage between a mortal and a fairy. So when she sees him embracing the apparently young and undeniably attractive Iolanthe, Phyllis naturally refuses to believe his assurances that the lady in question is actually his mother, and gets her own back by becoming engaged to not one but two peers of the realm. Whereupon Strephon does what any self-respecting shepherd lad would do under the circumstances: he goes into Parliament--with hilarious consequences
