Auf dieser CD "Arias" traf Christine Schäfer aus ihrem großen Repertoire sowie aus Wunschpartien eine sehr mutige, persönliche Auswahl von sehr unterschiedlichen Arien aus drei Jahrhunderten. Ergänzt wird diese Abfolge durch handverlesene Orchesterstücke von Schönberg, Bizet, und Ambroise Thomas. "Es ist hier vor allem die Zartheit der Stimme, die bezaubert. Eine Zartheit, eine Zärtlichkeit, die an einigen Stellen ganz neue Musik entstehen lässt - intimer, zerbrechlicher und spannungsvoller, als man die Arien ansonsten hört... Eigenwillig wie eh und je beweist Christine Schäfer aufs Neue, dass die Größe einer Stimme nicht allein im Volumen liegt. Schlank, geschmeidig, mit warmen Timbre, glockenhell in den Höhen, demonstriert sie mit dieser schier wahnwitzigen Bandbreite - vom Barock übers italienische Belcanto bis hin zu Messiaen - ihre Wandlungsfähigkeit und Intelligenz" (dradio.de). "Christine Schäfer ist, neben Anna Netrebko und Diana Damrau, DIE Sopranistin der Gegenwart. Wer sängerisch die Nase vorn hat, kann man unmöglich sagen - zu unterschiedlich sind Stimmfarbe und Persönlichkeit. Künstlerisch die eigenwilligste und vielseitigste unter den drei Starsopranistinnen ist zweifellos Christine Schäfer... Und Christine Schäfer gelingt es tatsächlich, allen Arten von Stilen und Stimmungen mit ihrer atemberaubend wandlungsfähigen Stimme gerecht zu werden. Das klingt ätherisch bei Messiaen, warm bei Strauss, innig bei Verdi, schlank bei Händel und leichtfüßig bei Bellini. Absolute Intonationssicherheit, bestechende Klarheit in der Führung der Gesangslinie und ein stets einnehmendes Timbre mit glockenheller Höhe, das sich manchmal angenehm umschleiert - das sind die sicheren Grundlagen dieser Wandlungsfähigkeit. Das deutsche Symphonieorchester Berlin unter Julien Salemkour ist Christine Schäfer ein ebenbürtiger Partner, klanglich und in der stilistischen Vielseitigkeit. Das ungewöhnlichste und schönste Arienalbum seit langem" (br.de)

Vermeer music of his time( )

1 edition published in 2005 in Undetermined and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This uniquely cross-sectional approach to culture combines great art with great music, and examines the connections between the two. Each piece of music from the carefully chosen selection takes on a new dimension and provides a musical context to the work of leading painters and sculptors. This fascinating series, with a colour booklet including a chronology of the principal artistic and political developments of the period, broadens our view of the music itself. Few painters are as enigmatic as Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675). His works command admiration for their meticulous observation and the sensitive rendering of light and colour. But beneath the perfection of form the artist's meaning remains obscure, his figures eternally serene and passive, their thoughts a mystery. On this audio, the world of Vermeer is given a musical perspective with a carefully chosen selection of pieces by the finest composers of his time
