mpn: 28944213423, ean: 0028944213423,

4.0 out of 5 stars with 95 reviews
This brilliant recording is Sir Colin Davis's second shot at Hector Berlioz's setting of Roméo et Juliette, and it proves one of the best- justified cases for rethinking a score to be found on disc. There are splendid performances from mezzo-soprano Olga Borodina (one of the few Russian singers who perform non-Slavic works satisfactorily for the Western ear), tenor Thomas Moser, bass Alastair Miles, and, not least, the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks, whose chorusmaster, unforgivably, is not

This is undoubtedly the most successful oratorio composed since Handel's Messiah, and for a long time in mid-19th-century England, where Mendelssohn had conducted the first performances, it was even more popular than Messiah. It has lost some of that popularity, along with the oratorio form generally, in our less reverent time, but opera-lovers can appreciate the dramatic treatment of the life of the prophet--summoning the people to righteousness, performing miracles, struggling against

Jussi Bjorling Edition (Studio Recordings, 1930-1959)
By Perterson
In Stock

mpn: PET-M203R, ean: 0724356630628,

4.0 out of 5 stars with 237 reviews
Red This set tells you why Jussi Bjorling is a perennial entrant in the ''Tenor of the Century'' sweepstakes. Even as the voice darkens from the light lyric to the full, darker instrument of the later recordings, we hear a singer whose elegant style, lovely timbre and innate musicality touch the heart. Many of the selections are sung in Swedish, less of a liability than you might suppose. In whatever language, Bjorling's molten gold flows lavishly. He eschews the sobs and sentimentality that

mpn: 074646634226, ean: 0074646634226,

4.5 out of 5 stars with 139 reviews
James Levine's is a more recent entry in the realm of Dutchman recordings, and sonically the recording is absolutely stunning, with great attention having been paid to the recording process. The casting for this Metropolitan Opera effort is also uniformly first rate, even in the less grateful roles of the hapless Erik, sung by the impressive Ben Heppner, and the scolding nurse, Mary, sung by Birgitta Svendén. Morris's brooding Dutchman is hard to match on any other available recording, and

mpn: 028942541023, ean: 0028942541023,

4.0 out of 5 stars with 256 reviews
1990 This opera becomes a battle of the divas in its great second act, with Sutherland, as Mary Stuart, pitted against the jealous, paranoid, and vengeful Elizabeth I (Tourangeau). There is an intensely dramatic confrontation in which insults are violently exchanged between the powerful monarch and her imprisoned but still regal rival to the throne. Mary wins the battle of insults, but this is a dangerous victory over one who has the power of life and death. Elizabeth orders Mary's execution

4 compact disc Sir George Solti's renditions of Wagner's operas often defined the standard interpretation practice in the post-World War II musical world, and he is at his best in this late 1980s digitally mastered recording partnered with his long-time collaborators, the Vienna Philharmonic--perhaps the most emotionally satisfying orchestra in the world for these challenging scores. Domingo, in the title role, shows himself as a true Heldentenor (i.e. a baritone with high notes), and his

Few singers received the adulation accorded Lucrezia Bori, whose glorious soprano finally gets its recorded due in these miraculous transfers by Ward Marston, which convey the body and warmth slighted in her previous incarnations on LP and CD. Bori's light, lyric voice was used with intelligence and pathos, making her one of the greatest Puccini singers, a wonderful Traviata, a spirited Carmen, and a masterful advocate of Spanish song, all virtues in evidence here. Most treasurable are the

Orff,C. ~ Carmina Burana This most favorite of choral works is infused with life through the fluid singing of the soloists. Hagegard's everyman baritone overflows with sensitive phrasing and a deliciously appealing timbre. McNair's lovely lyric glides across the music, capturing the subtle textual nuances--she has never been more appealing. The chorus is void of feeling in the first half, hypnotically following Slatkin's joyless lead. However, once they enter ''The Court of Love'' in Part III,

Mozart: Idomeneo

ean: 0028941180520,

4.7 out of 5 stars with 167 reviews
Premiered two days before Mozart's 25th birthday, this is the first opera of his maturity (i.e., the amazing last 10 years of his too-short life). It is written in a modified form of opera seria, a Baroque rather than a classical style, with a plot from Greek mythology and rigid structures that Mozart bent somewhat to his own preferences. It poses stylistic problems quite different from those raised by Don Giovanni or The Magic Flute, which are much closer to modern concepts of opera and,

Puccini: Suor Angelica / Bonynge, Sutherland
By Decca
In Stock

ean: 0028945821825,

4.1 out of 5 stars with 162 reviews
Though Puccini's trilogy of one-act operas, Il Trittico, is hard to love in its totality, Suor Angelica shows the composer retreating from melodramatic verismo into a more lyrical expression, as befits this story of a nun driven to suicide when told her child is dead. Though this cast isn't ideal, it more than does the job, with Joan Sutherland in unusually articulate, dramatically alert form. As her evil, unyielding aunt, Christa Ludwig avoids obvious melodramatics and is plenty chilling as a

Now that conductor Richard Bonynge doesn't have his now-retired wife Joan Sutherland to accompany him on his arcane journeys into forgotten French opera, he has hooked up with the spectacular coloratura Sumi Jo for a series of recordings exploring mid-19th-century operetta. This one is a nice aria compilation, especially welcome since you wouldn't want to hear the entire scores of these works by Adam, Grétry, Messager and Delibes. One hears influences by Rossini, flashes of Mozart, and lots of

Verdi: Aida
By RCA Legacy

ean: 0078635665222,

4.9 out of 5 stars with 138 reviews
Here's a prime-1950s cast in good monophonic sound, and it delivers the vocal thrills to keep its place high among the preferred recordings of Aida. The first voice you hear is the rich, rumbling bass of Boris Christoff and that immediately lets you know this will be no ordinary Aida. Bjorling's ''Celeste Aida'' is gold- standard, with gorgeous timbre, firm line, and a haunting mezza voce. From there, he just gets better. Zinka Milanov's Ethiopian princess is outstanding, full of marvelous

Berlioz: Les Nuits D'Ete / Ravel: Sheherazade ~ Jessye Norman
By Philips
In Stock

ean: 0028941249326,

4.4 out of 5 stars with 245 reviews
The most important thing to remember about Les Nuits d'été is that there's only one quick song and one moderate one to balance out three long, slow ones. Although the work is not a cycle in any coherent sense, most performers do the pieces in Berlioz's final order: the quick one first, then the three slow ones, then the moderate one. This makes for a very long middle. Norman's rich, dark voice might be thought a bit heavy for this particular order, but she has another card up her sleeve: Her
