This performance features the legendary African-American contralto Marian Anderson in her history-making Met debut role of Ulrica, the fortune-teller. At first her predictions are all good news. But who would believe the best friend of the king would actually murder him? Absurd. That's what the king (Jan Peerce) thinks. But he loves Amelia (Zinka Milanov), the wife of his friend Renato (Robert Merrill). And when Renato discovers them together, he joins the plot against the king. This is Verdian passion at its best
Ouvertures by Gioacchino Rossini( Recording )

1 edition published in 1995 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

16 von 20 Ouvertüren zu Bühnenmusiken, angefangen von dem ganz frühen Apollo et Hyacinthus über alle Opern Mozarts bis hin zu seinen letzten, der Zauberflöte und La clemenza di Tito, liegen hier in einer äußerst gelungenen Einspielung mit dem La Cetra Barockorchester Basel unter dem ausgewiesenen Barockspezialisten Andrea Marcon vor. Ouvertüren machen neugierig auf das, was kommen wird und nehmen gleichzeitig schon die Stimmung des folgenden Dramas auf. "Man kann dabei nicht schlafen", schrieb Mozart in einem Brief an seinen Vater über die Ouvertüre zur Entführung aus dem Serail. Gleiches trifft aber auch auf die anderen Ouvertüren zu und die mitreißende Interpretation von La Cetra und Andrea Marcon macht eine breite Empfehlung leicht. Titelliste: 1. Apollo et Hyacinthus 2. Bastien und Bastienne 3. La finta semplice 4. Mitridate, re di Ponto 5. La Betulia liberta 6. Ascanio in Alba 7. Lucio Silla

Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss( Recording )

in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Karl Bohm's only studio version of the work was recorded in 1958. When Deutsche Grammophon originally planned to record the work, there were already two rival versions on the market: the Decca recording under Erich Kleiber and EMI's version under Herbert von Karajan. Karajan's recording was made in December 1956 and should have included Irmgard Seefried as Octavian and Rita Streich as Sophie, but in both cases cast changes became necessary: Seefried was replaced by the young Christa Ludwig, and pregnancy forced Rita Streich to withdraw. As a result, Deutsche Grammophon was able to use both these singers for its own recording exactly two years later. It boasts a wonderful cast, with the full-throated Marianne Schech as the Marschallin, Irmgard Seefried bringing a range of colour to the 'trouser' role of Octavian, Rita Streich light and exquisite as Sophie, and a rounded, lyrical portrait of Faninal from Fischer-Dieskau. The recording also reunited Bohm with his 'old' orchestra, the Dresden Staatskapelle, an orchestra often referred to as the Zauberharfe or Magic Harp for the fluent and airborne quality of its sound
Tristan und Isolde by Richard Wagner( Recording )

1 edition published in 1989 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Wagner's revolutionary score changed the world of music with its radical portrayal of an all-consuming passion that can only be fulfilled in death. The legendary Birgit Nilsson sings Isolde, one of her greatest roles, in her second Met season. Karl Liebl is Tristan, the man she loves--and the best friend of the man she is forced to marry. Jerome Hines is the sorrowful King Marke and Irene Dalis sings Isolde's stalwart companion, Brangäne
