Benvenuto Cellini by Hector Berlioz( )

6 editions published in 2006 in French and held by 368 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 )

2 editions published in 2012 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 117 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 88 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

Ein deutsches Requiem : op. 45 by Johannes Brahms( )

3 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Deutsche Requiem von Brahms gehört in der Musikgeschichte zu den bekanntesten und umfangreichsten Requiem-Kompositionen. Die Texte sind der Luther-Bibel entnommen und setzen den Schwerpunkt auf den Trost der Lebenden für ihren Verlust und die Hoffnung auf Auferstehung. Marin Alsop gehört inzwischen nicht nur zu den bekanntesten NAXOS-Dirigentinnen sondern hat auch weltweit einen hervorragenden Ruf als Meisterin ihres Fachs. Diese Aufnahme gibt eindrucksvoll die heraus-ragende Zusammenarbeit Alsops mit dem Leipziger MDR Rundfunkchor- und Orchester wieder. Sopranistin Anna Lucia Richter ist Preisträgerin zahlreicher Wettbewerbe und hatte zuletzt großen Erfolg in Aufttritten u.a. mit dem Gürzenich Orchester Köln, dem WDR Rundfunkorchester, und dem HR Frankfurt. "Die Dirigentin, die heute das Baltimore Symphony Orchestra leitet, gab ihr Europa-Debüt 1993 beim Schleswig-Holstein-Festival. Seitdem ist sie hier immer wieder gern unterwegs, vorrangig mit den Werken zeitgenössischer amerikanischer und deutscher Komponisten. Dass ausgerechnet Johannes Brahms auf dem Programm des "Zauber der Musik" steht kommt nicht von ungefähr. Marin Alsop arbeitet gerade an einer Brahms Gesamteinspielung, die demnächst erscheinen wird. Für "Ein deutsches Requiem" hat sie sich für die Ensembles des MDR entschieden" (
