Pure Schumann : the solo concertos by Robert Schumann( Visual )

4 editions published in 2014 and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Who would have thought to hear the Freiburger Barockorchester playing Schumann? At the end of a long journey from Baroque to Romanticism the FBO and Pablo Heras Casado perform the three great solo concertos by Robert Schumann and his rarely heared "Ouvertüre, Scherzo und Finale" op. 52. Isabelle Faust, Jean-Guihen Queyras and Alexander Melnikov. More than being exceptional soloists, Isabelle Faust, Alexander Melnikov and Jean-Guihen Queyras all three are members of the same trio and this experience will not fail to give their interpretation homogeneity and absolutely unprecedented scale. A unique concert recording from Berlin Philharmonic Hall: Pure Schumann!
La Calisto by Pier Francesco Cavalli( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in Italian and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When they dusted off this archetype of Venetian opera in 1993. Rene Jacobs and Herbert Wernicke probably had no idea that their recreation was destined for worldwide acclaim. But then La Calisto (1651) still has plenty to say to today's audiences: first of all because it shows the gods as falible, indeed lustful: and secondly, because it is served here by an absolute gem of a production, and by a musical realisation that manages to be both inventive and rigorous. Constantly mingling nobility and triviality, comedy and tragedy, this Calisto juxtaposes Monteverdian declamation and new-fangled aria as effortlessly as it juggles the divine and the earthly."--Container

Molière by Ariane Mnouchkine( Visual )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in French and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Moliere is known everywhere as one of the world's greatest playwrights. But who was he? Born Jean-Baptiste Poquelin in 1622, the son of a prosperous tapestry maker. His mother died when he was a boy. Growing up in the teeming streets of 17th century Paris, Jean Baptiste received a good Jesuit education and was fascinated by the street fairs and traveling carnivals that flourished in spite of the religious repression and hypocrisy of those cruel times. As a young man he joined the theatrical Bejart family to establish the Illustre-Theatre, which soon went bankrupt. The troupe reformed, found patronage, and went on the road for thirteen years, performing all over France. Poquelin developed his stagecraft adapting Commedia dell Arte plots to please brutalized peasants and cynical townspeople. He also married Madeline Bejart, the widowed daughter of the troupe's founder. Later he entered into a love affair with Mme Bejart's daughter, to the dismay of all. The troupe eventually returned to Paris and, on October 24, 1658, greatly impressed the 20-year old King Louis XIV, later to be called the Sun King. Moliere's life became bound up with the magnificent court at Versailles, and with its intrigues. He wrote, staged and acted in the plays now famous all over the world. He fought with his enemies and his friends, enjoyed success followed by failure, organized court festivities and defended himself against increasingly fanatic religious authorities. Above all, his theater was taken from life as his life was theatrical". --IMDB
L'Orfeo : favola in musica by Claudio Monteverdi( Visual )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in Italian and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First seen 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. This is doubtless because it offers a total symbiosis of music, text and movement - described by the critic of the Daily Telegraph of London as being as close to the perfect dance opera as I have ever seen
