Nocturne symphonique : op. 43 by Ferruccio Busoni( )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thielemann kombiniert nun Werke der beiden Antipoden: neben Pfitzners selten gespieltem Klavierkonzert dirigiert er auch Busonis" Nocturne symphonique". In der zweiten Konzerthälfte erklingt dann die erste Symphonie von Johannes Brahms. Dieser galt seinerseits den einen als konservativ, den anderen als fortschrittlich. Den Solopart im Klavierkonzert von Pfitzner übernimmt der amerikanische Pianist Tzimon Barto, der schon in der Vergangenheit mit Christian Thielemann musiziert hat und für die außergewöhnlichen Herausforderungen dieses Konzerts in besonderem Maße geeignet sein dürfte. Das Magazin" Der Spiegel"bezeichnete ihn in einem großen Porträt als einen der" vielschichtigsten, unerschöpflichsten und besten Pianisten der Gegenwart". Zahlreiche CD-Einspielungen legen davon eindrucksvoll Zeugnis ab

Parsifal [ein Bühnenweihfestspiel] by Richard Wagner( Recording )

21 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's mystical opera makes extraordinary demands on the conductor, but James Levine is renowned for the special affection and authority he brings to this transcendent work. The music shimmers and glows, evoking the legendary world of the Knights of the Holy Grail and the pure fool who brings healing power to the land. Peter Hofmann stars as the questing title hero, Jerome Hines sings the wise old man, Gurnemanz, and Mignon Dunn is the voluptuous Kundry, whose erotic temptations almost ensnare the young hero

Eine Alpensinfonie op. 64 by Richard Strauss( Recording )

14 editions published in 2001 in 3 languages and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The year 2014 marks the 150th birthday of the Munich-born composer Richard Strauss, and this CD highlights two key genres in his oeuvre: the "Alpine Symphony", composed in 1915, his last and greatest tone poem, and the four symphonic interludes from the opera "Intermezzo", first performed in Dresden in 1924. The Austrian conductor Franz Welser-Möst, currently Musical Director of the Vienna State Opera and Principal Conductor of the Cleveland Orchestra, is also a popular guest conductor of the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks. The music of Strauss lies on the threshold of the modern age, and Welser-Möst interprets it with a musical dramatic style enhanced by the classical-romantic tradition. This CD from the BR-KLASSIK label celebrates not only the 150th anniversary of Strauss's birth but also the 25th anniversary of Franz Welser-Moest's regular appearances as a guest conductor with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks" (prestoclassical.co.uk)

Mein Leben mit Wagner by Christian Thielemann( Book )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in German and Spanish and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christian Thielemann kennt Richard Wagner wie kein anderer. Jetzt widmet der große Wagner-Dirigent seinem Lieblingskomponisten zum 200. Geburtstag ein Porträt. Er erzählt darin von seinen Erfahrungen mit Wagner, führt den Leser durch den Kosmos von dessen Werk und spürt jener nie ganz erklärlichen Magie nach, die Wagners Musik so einzigartig macht. "Ich weiß nicht mehr, was in meinem Leben zuerst da war: der Gedanke an Wagner oder der ans Dirigieren." Richard Wagner war für Christian Thielemann seit Beginn seiner Karriere Herausforderung und Inspiration, musikalisch wie technisch, emotional wie intellektuell. In seinem Buch schildert er, wie er zu Wagner kam, was er auf seinem Weg mit dem Komponisten gelernt hat und welche Begegnungen ihn geprägt haben. Er führt persönlich durch die Opern, stellt uns deren Helden vor und schaut in Wagners Giftküche, wo die narkotischsten Klänge der Welt gemischt wurden. Daneben gewährt er uns einen seltenen Blick in die Werkstatt des Dirigenten. Was muss er alles beachten, wenn er Wagners Zauber am Abend entfalten will? Vor welchen Fallen muss er sich hüten? Und was rechtfertigt noch heute den Mythos, der Bayreuth umgibt? Wagner wurde seit seinem Tod leidenschaftlich verehrt und leidenschaftlich verabscheut. Auch damit beschäftigt sich dieses Buch. Am Ende macht es jedoch allen, Wagner-Kennern wie Wagner-Debütanten, klar, warum sich ein Leben mit Wagner lohnt
