Le prophète by Giacomo Meyerbeer( Recording )

87 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 909 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Meyerbeer's grand operas once ruled the operatic world, but they're rarities today. With this performance the Met pulled out all the stops to show modern audiences what all the fuss was about. James McCracken is Jean of Lyden, a simple innkeeper who is proclaimed the Prophet and who leads a religious uprising in medieval Holland. During the turmoil he denounces his mother, Fidès (Marilyn Horne at her spectacular best), and his fiancé, Berthe (a passionate Renata Scotto), turns on him. The opera ends catastrophically but is filled with colorful music

Souvenir of a golden era by Marilyn Horne( )

"The two doughters of Manuel Garcia and Joaquina Stichès, Maria Malibran and Pauline Viardot are the most famous sisters in the history of opera. In their time they were both labelled mezzo-sopranos, but with careful study their voices were able to encompass many parts suns as a general rule by sopranos. Marilyn Horne has recorded a selection from their widely varying roles. This is a feat probably unique today, nevertheless proving that an exceptional artist can still revive an era thout, until recently, to have been abandoned to the past. The sisters di not appear together (Maria died when Pauline was only fifteen), but their repertoires contained many roles in common. Maria can fairly be described as a great singer of the earlier part of the nineteenth centure, but Pauline lived through and took part in the great transformation from Rossini to Meyebeer, Verdi and Gounod. This recording sets out not only to present a virtuoso feat of the present day, but also to be an important historical document."--Program notes

Kindertotenlieder by Gustav Mahler( )

14 editions published between 1969 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im Jahr 1918 wurde mit dem Verein für musikalische Privataufführungen in Wien eine neuartige und bis heute konzeptionell spannende Veranstaltungsform etabliert. Eine in der Repertoirepflege dominierende Praxis war jene der künstlerisch hochqualitativen Bearbeitung von groß besetzten Werken für Klavier und kleinere Ensembles. Diese historischen Voraussetzungen dienten als Inspiration für die vorliegende Produktion mit Werken von Gustav Mahler und Alban Berg, hier in einer Neuinterpretation durch drei Komponisten unserer Zeit. Rainer Riehn konnte aufgrund seiner Ergänzungen an Schönberg-Bearbeitungen von Mahler-Orchesterliedern eine reiche Erfahrung mit der Bearbeitungspraxis des Vereins gewinnen und interpretiert Mahlers Kindertotenlieder neu. Alban Bergs Violinkonzert, ein musikalisches Epitaph, wurde durch den Komponisten und Arrangeur Andreas N. Tarkmann für das Linos-Ensemble in eine neue Klanggestalt gebracht. Die kammerorchestrale Einrichtung der Altenberg-Lieder Bergs schließlich geht auf den dänischen Komponisten und Musiktheoretiker Diderik Wagenaar zurück

Marilyn Horne recital by Marilyn Horne( )

10 editions published between 1965 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marilyn Horne fue un fenómeno vocal del siglo XX, y este temprano recital (su primer solo?) de 1964, es un ejemplo de un tipo de voz y cantar aparentemente fácil de encontrar en el siglo XIX pero que tenía, al parecer, poco que hacer en el XX hasta el "renacimiento" del bel canto. Aquí ofrece 52 minutos del más deslumbrante canto que sea posible oír
