Les nuits d'été ; Harold en Italie by Hector Berlioz( )

5 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Les Nuits d'été, the most famous cycle of melodies for soprano and orchestra composed by Berlioz, and Harold en Italie, a symphony where the viola is especially prominent, are among the most beautiful and accomplished works of the French composer. This new recording offers Anne Sofie von Otter's second recording of Les Nuits d'été. The first one, on Deutsche Gramophon, has always been a landmark recording. As some conductors or instrumentalists record several times their masterpieces, the Swedish mezzo-soprano, who has recorded exclusively for Naïve since 2010, is now offering a new vision of the work, where inspiration and technique have evolved. But intensity and emotion are still at an outstanding level. This is of course her first recording of the work with period instruments and with long-time partner Marc Minkowski. Over the past few years they performed this piece many times together. Especially at the Proms 2007 - about which the Guardian wrote "Anne Sofie von Otter was the soloist in a restrained, yet at times unbearably intense performance of Berlioz's Les Nuits d'été. The playing was exquisite, a reminder that Les Musiciens du Louvre-Grenoble is, quite simply, one of the greatest orchestras in the world." The other work of the recording, Harold en Italie, the second of Berlioz' fours symphonies, features one of the most renowned viola players of the time, Antoine Tamestit. His warm sound is especially underlined is this work composed by Berlioz for Paganini and much inspired by the years the composer spent in Italy."--Marbeck's website

Harold en Italie ; La mort de Cléopâtre by Hector Berlioz( )

3 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Any Berlioz recording by Valery Gergiev promises to be an exciting tour de force, but considering that this disc is also an audiophile recording of the London Symphony Orchestra in concert, it promises even more. There are few composers more dynamic and startling in originality than Berlioz, and his "Harold en Italie" is one of the most innovative works in the Romantic repertoire: part symphonic poem avant la lettre, based on Lord Byron's poem, Childe Harold's Pilgrimage; part autobiographical symphony, in the manner of its immediate predecessor, the "Symphonie fantastique"; and part concerto, for the viola soloist. Gergiev maintains a strong tension from the outset, and paces "Harold en Italie" with an urgency and emotional fire that are rare, and violist Antoine Tamestit brings a dramatic flair to his part, in contrast with more purely lyrical interpretations that tend toward the introspective. In the cantata, "La mort de Cléopâtre," mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill projects a similar kind of intensity and presence, and the lyricism and passion of the music is heightened in her collaboration with Gergiev and the LSO. The sound of this hybrid SACD is vivid and close-up, so every detail of the performances can be heard, as well as some incidental noises in the live setting

The piano quartets, opp. 25, 26 & 60 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )

10 editions published in 2010 in Undetermined and No Linguistic content and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this eagerly-awaited new recording on Chandos, the Schubert Ensemble returns with a programme that has been in its repertoire for many years: the piano quartets by Saint-Saëns and Chausson. It would be hard to find a more vivid demonstration of the variety of French music making in the last quarter of the nineteenth century than these two quartets, and the differences between them are all the more striking in that neither of them conforms wholly to the casual cliché of French music as being light, graceful, charming, and anti anything that might be classed as intellectual. From Saint-Saëns's witty and elegant Quartet in B flat major to Chausson's relatively unknown, rhapsodic, and full-blooded Quartet in A major, the thirty-year old Schubert Ensemble reveals two extremes of the French romantic repertoire and here offers a rare, attractive, and diverse programme
