While ''West Side Story'' is Leonard Bernstein's most popular and often performed Opera, most veteran critics and even Bernstein himself regarded ''Candide'' as a superior achievement. Having reworked the piece throughout his life this Deutsche Grammophon recording presents Bernstein's final thoughts, and all who've treasured the longstanding Columbia (now Sony) original cast recording will find much to enjoy here as well. In 1991 when this set was first issued it won Stereo Review's record of

This is a reissue of the Grammy Award Winning recording of Nixon in China. The 1988 Grammy Award Winner, John Adams, describes this landmark as ''part epic, part satire, part parody of political posturing, and part serious examination of historical, philosophical, and even gender issues.'' The Boston Globe called the Grammy-winning 1987 work ''a milestone in American operatic history.'' This first recording, featuring the original cast, says Los Angeles Times music critic Mark Swed,

Der Freischütz is one of the great milestones in the history of opera. The resounding success of its premiere in 1821 practically made it a manifesto for German Romantic opera, one that would become a significant formative influence on Wagner. Although it has its roots in the Singspiel tradition exemplified by Mozart's Die Zauberflöte, Der Freischütz cut new ground with its potent mixture of supernatural elements, dreams, folk melodies, evocations of nature, and symphonic tone painting.

A strong cast--with Lucia Popp a radiant Susanna and Frederica Von Stade deliciously precocious as Cherubino--makes this Figaro a delight from start to finish. Georg Solti presides masterfully, uncorking a propulsive reading with all the fizz of vintage champagne. --Ted Libbey.

All our books are brand new. We ship worldwide Tatiana Troyanos was reportedly never comfortable on stage as Carmen, but she sings it ravishingly well in this recording, in good voice and at home with the character. Placido Domingo, seemingly the only Don José of our era, gives one of his best accounts of the role; Dame Kiri Te Kanawa sings beautifully as Micaëla, and Jose van Dam's Escamillo offers just the right blend of macho swagger. The dialogue is unusually well done, and Georg Solti's

CD For all its exotically tinged, trademark Orientalism, so fashionable in late-19th-century France, Delibe's opera Lakmé is at heart a simple story of tragically misplaced love. This marvelous and sensitively wrought interpretation renders the intensity of that love story with a surprising emotional credibility. Conductor Michel Plasson allows the music's arching melodies to breathe and unfold leisurely, like a lovingly cultivated floral display; he even discovers hidden nuances within the

No Description Available.Genre: Classical MusicMedia Format: Compact DiskRating: Release Date: 1-JAN-2002 Joan Sutherland is not usually considered a Puccini singer, and in fact she sang the role of Turandot only in the recording studio. But for that assignment she had exactly what was needed: a voice that seemed to have no upper limits and a personality that concealed vulnerability under an air of icy detachment. She also had an ideal set of colleagues, notably Luciano Pavarotti, whose

Certified platinum by the RIAA (10/94). It's not opera; it's not a pop concert; it's not Broadway. It's all of these and none of them. Once you accept the fact that this sequel to the original blockbuster concert recording is less about music and more about entertainment and the power of musical personalities, you can appreciate what you're hearing as an event--phenomenal and bizarre, momentous and frivolous. This is an occasion to celebrate the voices and egos of three huge superstars, and to
