SCHOENBERG : Moses und Aron by Arnold Schoenberg( )

18 editions published between 1984 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schoenberg's masterpiece in the twelve-tone system he developed was his unfinished opera, a vastly complex work based on a single tone row that it remained a fragment may be essential to its spiritual message, for while Schoenberg never stated it explicitly, it would seem that he left this most ambitious project of his mature style incomplete on purpose

Mozart's charming fairy tale has something for everyone: comedy, adventure, eternal wisdom, outrageous characters and, of course, a hero who dares everything for his true love. Barbara Bonney is Pamina, beautiful daughter of the Queen of the Night (Mary Dunleavy), who is kidnapped by Sarastro (a superb Kurt Moll). Prince Tamino (Frank Lopardo)--with the dubious help of the bird catcher Papageno, sung by Gerald Finley in his Met debut role--takes one look at her portrait, falls in love, and knows he must rescue her

The young Roman patrician Sesto, sung by Tatiana Troyanos in one of her greatest performances, is besotted by the vengeful and manipulative Vitellia (Elizabeth Connell). An enchanting Gail Robinson is Servilia, Sesto's sister, who is desired by the emperor himself but in love with another man

Er präsentiert mit den "Faust-Szenen"ein groß angelegtes Meisterstück, das die komplexe und hochphilosophische literarische Vorlage von Goethe in einer losen Szenenfolge musikalisch nachzeichnet. Immer wieder beschäftigte sich Schumann gerade in seinem letzten Lebensjahrzehnt mit den Möglichkeiten, die im vokal-symphonischen und musikdramatischen Komponieren liegen. Die Partie des Faust gestaltet der außergewöhnliche Bariton Christian Gerhaher, ihm zur Seite stehen Christiane Karg als Gretchen sowie weitere international hoch angesehene Solisten, der Kammerchor der Augsburger Domsingknaben und der Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks" (
