"Dies ist eine Aufnahme, von der man als Hörer sehr viel lernen kann. Es ist gewusst, dass Musik von Richard Strauss wirklich gut klingt, wenn sie von einem Toporchester wie der Staatskapelle Dresden, dem Concertgebouw Amsterdam oder den Wiener Philharmonikern gespielt wird..... Nun kommt ein Dirigent wie Sebastian Weigle daher und legt sich mit den 'Großen"an. Er weiß genau, dass sein Frankfurter Opern- und Museumsorchester ein hervorragender Klangkörper ist, der aber nicht mit den Wienern & Co zu vergleichen ist. Was macht also Weigle? Er akzeptiert die Grenzen seines Orchesters und versucht auch nie, darüber hinaus zu gehen. Vielmehr nutzt er die Chance und liest die 'Alpensinfonie' recht vertikal. Er verlässt somit den sicheren Pfad Strauss'scher Klangopulenz und bewegt sich auf den 'Nebenpfaden'. Und wie ein Bergführer nimmt er den Hörer mit sich und zeigt ihm die ganze Alpenwelt von einer anderen Seite. Hier hört man plötzlich ganz neuartig wirkende Farben, neue Schattierungen, Crescendi und Akzente. Alles wirkt zwar vertraut und erscheint doch in einer komplett neuen Aufmischung, die der Musik unendlich gut tut. Und so fasziniert man von den Einspielungen Karajans, Thielemanns, Kempes und vielen anderen sein kann, man muss dieser Frankfurter Aufnahme allerhöchste Integrität und künstlerisches Können zugestehen" (pizzicato.lu)

Má vlast by Bedřich Smetana( )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Smetana's cycle "My Country" is a pinnacle of symphonic literature. There is nothing quite like it: six musical poems which, while independent of each other, form an organic whole. As a composer, Smetana was in the vanguard. This visionary work is unmistakably personal, connected to the Czech nation's tragic history and to the Bohemian-Moravian landscape; it is not only about memory, it also gives hope for the future, brilliantly describing landscapes of the human soul. As such it goes beyond time, to create something of a lasting significance. This is music of nostalgia, which sets thoughts and emotions free. After hearing "My Country," one emerges stronger. Every one of these six pieces has a tremendous energy, and enables one to live with melancholy and sorrow: the work transforms the listener and enriches his soul

Experience the 2011 Glyndebourne Festival production of Benjamin Britten's two-act opera The Turn of the Screw, whose libretto by Myfanwy Piper is based on the book by Henry James. The plot of The Turn of the Screw truly is as described in the opera's Prologue a "curious story". An isolated manor in the English countryside, a faithful old chambermaid, two young orphans and a new governess filled with enthusiasm, sent from London to take care of them. But nothing is as it seems in the protected world of Bly... Directed by Jakub Hrůša, Musical Director of Glyndebourne on Tour, Jonathan Kent's strangely disturbing production was filmed at the Glyndebourne Festival in 2011. The staging updates Henry James' late-Victorian ghost story to the postwar England in which Britten composed the opera, a choice that, as put by Martin Kettle in The Gaurdian "is very effective, underlining that Britten, not James is the evening's presiding spook". With the score realized by an assured cast of soloists, supported by the London Philharmonic under Edward Gardner, the production serves up a shiver-inducing evening of insidious musical mystery
