Benvenuto Cellini [opéra-comique in two acts and four tableaux] by Hector Berlioz( )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in French and Undetermined and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Berlioz's opera about the legendary hot-blooded Florentine sculptor and goldsmith is a rarity. But under James Levine's masterful conducting the huge and complex score dazzles like one of Cellini's artworks. Marcello Giordani is Benventuo Cellini, who must finish a statue of Perseus for Pope Clement (Robert Lloyd) by nightfall or be hanged as a murderer and rapist. Against all the odds, including the conniving of his vicious rival Fieramosca (Peter Coleman-Wright), Cellini's artistry triumphs, and he can finally be with the woman he loves, Teresa (Isabel Bayrakdarian)

Cloud atlas original motion picture soundtrack by Tom Tykwer( Recording )

3 editions published in 2012 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cloud Atlas is a major cinematic event, and the most expensive independent film of all time with a budget of US$ 100 million and a cast including such big names as Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant and Susan Sarandon, in addition to outstanding actors in Jim Sturgess, Ben Whishaw and Jim Broadbent. The size of the budget and the large ensemble cast correspond to the multiple strands of the story: Drama, mystery, action and enduring love thread through a single story that unfolds in multiple timelines over the span of 500 years. Characters meet and reunite from one life to the next. Born and reborn. As the consequences of their actions and choices impact one another through the past, the present and the distant future, one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and a single act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution

Homage to Robert Schumann live from the Frauenkirche Dresden by Robert Schumann( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in German and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1844 and 1859 Robert Schumann lived in Dresden where he composed a third of his complete works. This concert marks the 200th anniversary of Robert Schumann's birth and offers a welcome opportunity for Daniel Harding and the Staatskapelle Dresden to introduce three of the most impressive but now too rarely performed works from his Dresden period (Overture to Genoveva, Requiem für Mignon and Nachtlied). Particular highlights - which will come as a surprise even to connoisseurs of his works - are a first performance and a world premiere of rediscovered and reconstructed symphonic movements dating from the composer's legendary "symphony year" of 1841. Moreover, Rhenish Symphony, composed by Schumann after leaving Dresden and widely influenced by his impressions of the Cologne Cathedral, blends in perfectly with the sacral architecture of the Frauenkirche
