Music for lute( )

3 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The beautiful and contemplative sounds of the lute are heard in this 4 CD set celebrating the masterful musicianship of Walter Gerwig (1899- 966). Gerwig was a leading pioneer of early music in post-war Germany. Unlike some musicians who lived through the war years, Gerwig refused to join the Nazi party. After the war, Gerwig, through recitals and recordings developed a reputation in Europe akin to Julian Bream in the England. This box set brings together for the first time on CD, Gerwig's recorded legacy on the Archiv label and features solo lute music by Italian, French and German masters from the 16th through 18th centuries. The set also includes the first recording ever made (1949) of Bach's G Minor Lute Suite. Historic mono recordings featuring solo instruments or small ensembles are prized by audiophiles. The intimate sound quality can become, as the music takes hold, practically indistinguishable from modern recordings"--ArkivMusic website (viewed May 1, 2014)

13 editions published between 1955 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Six suites for violoncello solo. by Johann Sebastian Bach( )

44 editions published between 1950 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new edition, in contrast to the array of Bach Cello Suite publications available today, has made use of all the five sources which have come down to us. The basis for this edition is the most reliable of the sources, the manuscript copy in the hand of Anna Magdalena Bach. All variant readings from the four other sources are clearly laid out for performance. Cellists now have the possibility of rendering performances based on just one of the five sources as well as the option of combining the sources in a mixed version. - Publisher
