Les nuits d'été ; Harold en Italie by Hector Berlioz( )

5 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Les Nuits d'été, the most famous cycle of melodies for soprano and orchestra composed by Berlioz, and Harold en Italie, a symphony where the viola is especially prominent, are among the most beautiful and accomplished works of the French composer. This new recording offers Anne Sofie von Otter's second recording of Les Nuits d'été. The first one, on Deutsche Gramophon, has always been a landmark recording. As some conductors or instrumentalists record several times their masterpieces, the Swedish mezzo-soprano, who has recorded exclusively for Naïve since 2010, is now offering a new vision of the work, where inspiration and technique have evolved. But intensity and emotion are still at an outstanding level. This is of course her first recording of the work with period instruments and with long-time partner Marc Minkowski. Over the past few years they performed this piece many times together. Especially at the Proms 2007 - about which the Guardian wrote "Anne Sofie von Otter was the soloist in a restrained, yet at times unbearably intense performance of Berlioz's Les Nuits d'été. The playing was exquisite, a reminder that Les Musiciens du Louvre-Grenoble is, quite simply, one of the greatest orchestras in the world." The other work of the recording, Harold en Italie, the second of Berlioz' fours symphonies, features one of the most renowned viola players of the time, Antoine Tamestit. His warm sound is especially underlined is this work composed by Berlioz for Paganini and much inspired by the years the composer spent in Italy."--Marbeck's website
