Adamo, M: Little Women - An Opera in Two Acts

Adamo, M: Little Women - An Opera in Two Acts

Recorded at the Cullen Theater, Wortham Theater Center, Houston, Texas, 17–18 March 2000


Stephanie Novacek (Jo), Joyce DiDonato (Meg), Chad Shelton (Laurie), Stacey Tappan (Beth), Margaret Lloyd (Amy), Daniel Belcher (John Brooke) & Chen-Ye Yuan (Friedrich Bhaer)

Houston Grand Opera Orchestra, Patrick Summers

Based on Louisa May Alcott’s enduringly popular novel about the adventures of Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy in civil-war era New England, Mark Adamo’s opera Little Women has been performed in more than 70 national and international engagements since its 1998 première by Houston Grand Opera and has achieved the status of an American classic.

This recording, with a superb cast expertly directed for television, vividly brings to life an opera that The New Yorker hailed as “A beautifully crafted work, brilliantly molding Alcott’s tale into operatic form,” and The New York Times dubbed a “masterpiece”.

Stage Production Director: Peter Webster

Directed for Television by Brian Large

“It's expertly staged and acted, and interesting to see the young Joyce DiDonato in repertoire far removed from her familiar one.” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2010 ****

“What was an outstanding cast in 2000 is still astounding today...[Novacek] patiently creates for Jo a spectrum of intimate depth and then explores it with a sure dramatic touch and a voice of power and beauty...a convincing demonstration that Little Women could be an audience-pleaser wherever it plays.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2011

“It will prove too sentimental for some tastes...But you can't fault the performance, filmed in 2002 during a revival of the original Houston production. Joyce DiDonato fans will be fascinated by her self-assured Meg. But it's Stephanie Novacek's self-willed Jo, and Stacey Tappan, heart-rending as fragile Beth, that make the strongest impression.” The Guardian, 9th December 2010 ***

Adams, J: Doctor Atomic

Adams, J: Doctor Atomic

Recorded live at Het Musiektheater, Amsterdam on 7th, 25th & 29th June 2007.


Gerald Finley (J. Robert Oppenheimer), Jessica Rivera (Kitty Oppenheimer), Eric Owens (General Leslie Groves), Richard Paul Fink (Edward Teller), James Maddalena (Jack Hubbard), Thomas Glenn (Robert R. Wilson), Jay Hunter Morris (Captain James Nolan), Ellen Rabiner (Pasqualita)

Chorus of De Nederlandse Opera & Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, Lawrence Renes (musical director) & Peter Sellars (stage director)

Note: This Blu-ray Disc (BD) is not compatible with standard DVD players

The longing to overcome human boundaries led the physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer to begin an experiment that formed a threat to the whole of humanity, and whose scientific results still do today. The question of the moral implications of the atomic bomb is raised in John Adams’ opera, just as much as that of the influence on the private lives of the main characters. Doctor Atomic is the fifth work to result from almost twenty years of collaboration between the American composer and his fellow American director and Erasmus Prize-winner Peter Sellars.

'The cast is flawless… Adams has created a beautiful provocative work that refreshes the repertoire.’ The Times

LENGTH: 231 Mins
SOUND: DOLBY TrueHD 5.1 & 2.0
SUBTITLES: EN/FR/DE/ES/IT/NL

“Doctor Atomic centres on the hours before the first detonation of the atomic bomb… Peter Sellars's film of the opera is expressionistic, claustrophobic, sometimes deliberately out of focus. The sound quality is exceptionally good, as is the singing and playing under conductor Lawrence Renes.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2008 *****

“Gerald Finley carries the problems of the world on his shoulders as Oppenheimer and the Netherlands Philharmonic and Lawrence Renes play like it’s the best score since Fidelio.” Gramophone Magazine, December 2008

“The heart throbs...in scenes featuring Jessica Rivera as Oppenheimer’s wife, the opera’s symbol of warmth, sensuousness, and hope. But these are moments: the overall tone stays cool, intellectual. We watch as observers, not participants. Sellars directed this TV version himself. There are virtues here, and vices. Cinema aficionados dismayed by static shots may revel in the nervous visuals, the quick editing and close-ups (you grow very familiar with Rivera’s tongue). But by fidgeting so much, Sellars the film director often works against the interests of Sellars the stage director. Body movements are truncated; the patterns of Lucinda Childs’s choreography get lost. All too rarely do we grasp the big picture and enjoy the full impact of Adrianne Lobel’s stark sets, with desert hills silhouetted and the bomb, cradled with wires, looming overhead like a malevolent planet. Finley, Rivera, Eric Owens and the rest of the cast are always as eloquent as the opera allows, and Lawrence Renes’s conducting is on the ball. Extras are disappointing: too much of Sellars holding forth, not enough on the production” The Times, 1st August 2008 ***

Adams, J: Nixon in China

Adams, J: Nixon in China


James Maddalena (Richard Nixon), Janis Kelly (Pat), Kathleen Kim (Chiang Ch'ing), Robert Brubaker (Mao Tse-tung), Russell Braun (Chou En-lai) & Richard Paul Fink (Henry Kissinger)

Metropolitan Opera

‘The opera and the production may have come to the Met at just the right time to comprehend the continuing resonances of this audacious and moving opera.’ New York Times

‘A modern masterpiece.’ Washington Post

Nonesuch Records releases the Metropolitan Opera's performance of John Adams' Nixon in China, with the composer conducting, on Blu-ray and DVD together in one package on November 19. The Met's production, staged by Adams' long-time collaborator Peter Sellars, stars James Maddalena as Richard Nixon, a role he created at the opera's world premiere in 1987 and has since performed at international leading opera houses, including the English National Opera, Netherlands Opera, and Brooklyn Academy of Music. Nixon in China was recorded and broadcast live in movie theatres around the world as part of The Met: Live in HD on February 12, 2011 - 10 days after the opera received its Met premiere.

The opera's libretto is by American poet Alice Goodman, who also collaborated with Adams and Sellars on The Death of Klinghoffer. The Met's production, which was originally created by the English National Opera, features the work of the 1987 world premiere's design team, including set designer Adrianne Lobel, costume designer Dunya Ramicova, lighting designer James F. Ingalls, and choreographer Mark Morris. Nixon in China also features Janis Kelly as Pat Nixon, Kathleen Kim as Chiang Ch'ing, Robert Brubaker as Mao Tse-tung, Russell Braun as Chou En-lai, and Richard Paul Fink as Henry Kissinger. Adams, who regularly conducts major orchestras around the world, made his Met debut as conductor with Nixon in China; his opera Doctor Atomic had its Met premiere in a well-reviewed 2008 production.

"I met Peter Sellars in 1983, and he proposed the idea and even the title for Nixon in China. My first response was pretty skeptical-Nixon was little more than a butt for late night comedians by that time," Adams tells the Met's Elena Park in an interview published in the Blu-ray/DVD's booklet. "But I eventually realized it was a perfect idea, and that it was right to find our mythology in our own contemporary history."

In the same interview, Sellars says of Nixon in China's arrival at the Met: "It's very sweet after 25 years. We created it as anti-grand opera originally, and now it's beautiful that at the Met it can be genuinely grand. The work was made by a group of very young, very idealistic people. We were trying to show what opera can contribute to history, which is to deepen it and move it into its more subtle, nuanced, and mysterious corners, which might just open into more surprising and satisfying possibilities for a future."

“Though vocally strained, James Maddalena brings baffled tenderness to the title role. Janis Kelly is a superb Pat Nixon, Russell Braun a noble Chou En-lai. Robert Brubaker's Mao is tetchy, while Kathleen Kim is an incendiary Madame Mao and Richard Paul Fink an oily Kissinger.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2013 ****

“As a record of [Sellars's, Adams's and Maddalena's] achievement, this is a valuable document...by 2011 Maddalena was in vocal decline. Future generations will see Nixon in China as the composer intended But it gives due prominence to Janis Kelly’s Pat Nixon and Kathleen Kim’s Madame Mao, and it is wonderful to be re-acquainted with Mark Morris’s choreography.” Financial Times, 29th December 2012 ****

“Maddalena (though not in best voice) portrays a more noble Nixon pushed to his diplomatic limits. The heart of the opera is Pat Nixon, portrayed by Janis Kelly with less sense of submission and a lot more depth..Given Sellars's penchant for tight camera close-ups in his video direction, the opera often feels like the intimate chamber work that, in its conflicted heart, it actually wants to be.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2013

“It’s hard to imagine the piece looking better...It sounds terrific too. A beaming Adams conducts, the players sharing his delight in what remains his most melodically generous score...This production is brilliantly cast – Janis Kelly’s weary Pat Nixon is a joy” The Arts Desk, 1st June 2013

“James Maddalena, the original Nixon, may have lost some vocal tautness, but his presentation of Nixon’s complex character has grown only richer. And most of his colleagues are magnificent: Janis Kelly, shining bright as Pat Nixon; Russell Braun, wonderfully pained and sombre as Zhou Enlai; Kathleen Kim as Chairman Mao’s wife, eyes and mouth dripping venom.” The Times, 30th November 2012 ****

Orquestra de la Comunitat Valenciana & Cor de la Generalitat Valenciana, Patrick Fournillier

Stage Director & Stage Designer: Michal Znaniecki

While best known today for having composed the ending to Puccini’s unfinished Turandot, Franco Alfano wrote some dozen operas, including Cyrano de Bergerac (1936) with a libretto by Henri Cain based on Edmond Rostand’s drama of the same name. It is a moving tale of romantic misunderstanding, swashbuckling bravado and heartbreaking loyalty, in which the eloquent Cyrano feels unable to express his love for Roxane because of his famously protuberant nose – except on behalf of his handsome but inarticulate friend, Christian.

“Domingo is unquestionably moving and makes a good case for having added the title role to his huge gallery of characters; his dark tone can still be thrilling and he is a more committed actor than many of his colleagues. …Sondra Radvanovsky matches him as a spirited Roxane, using her gleaming soprano to musical effect. Michal Znaniecki's traditionally costumed production... works effectively enough in tandem with Patrick Fournillier's light-textured conducting.” BBC Music Magazine, March 2010 ****

“Domingo's…voice is also caught in marvellously fine condition. This may well be the heroic last act in his career as the world's greatest tenor, and in the final scene especially his performance is intensely moving.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2010

“the sets are simple but effective...Sondra Radvanovsky makes for an impressive Roxane...Domingo’s voice remains remarkably powerful and eloquent, even if the high notes are noticeably effortful once or twice. His death scene is genuinely touching...The performance is well filmed, visually, with some split screens from different camera angles and the occasional slow-motion reminiscence of earlier action” Opera Britannia, 30th June 2011 ***/****

An Experimental Opera

Giorgio Battistelli

"Experimentum Mundi is arguably the most important work in the field of contemporary music in recent decades. In one fell swoop, Giorgio Battistelli's pioneering work has fulfilled all the artistic aspirations and dreams of his century. In the wake of his various attempts to bridge the gap between life and art, he has ultimately managed to achieve this in his hour-long musical work.

The timbral, rhythmic and harmonic variations, created with 'instruments' from everyday life, make this work a unique, unforgettable experience." Giorgio Pressburger (2005)

This extraordinary performance of the Experimentum Mundi was recorded in the Auditorium Parco della Musica in May 2013 under the baton of Giorgio Battistelli.

A Tribute to Hans Knappertsbusch

A Tribute to Hans Knappertsbusch

Live recording from the Theater an der Wien, Wiener Festwochen, 1962 & 1963


Beethoven:

Leonore Overture No. 3, Op. 72b

Piano Concerto No. 4 in G major, Op. 58

Wilhelm Backhaus (piano)

Wagner:

Die Walküre: Act 1

Claire Watson (Sieglinde), Fritz Uhl (Siegmund) & Josef Greindl (Hunding)

Tristan und Isolde: Prelude & Liebestod

Birgit Nilsson (Isolde)


The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and Hans Knappertsbusch worked together for the first time at the Salzburg Festival in 1929. Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusik, De Falla’s Nights in the Gardens of Spain and a Dance Suite by the composer Franckenstein formed the first half of the programme while Beethoven’s Eroica took up the second half. Although the orchestra and the conductor had never met before, Knappertsbusch rehearsed only the first part of the programme. He refused to rehearse Beethoven’s Eroica, saying, “You know the work, I know the score”. The violinist Otto Strasser remembers, “He radiated such confidence on the evening of the concert that a rehearsal had indeed not been necessary”…

This incident was characteristic for the relationship between the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and Hans Knappertsbusch, which lasted for 35 years, giving 210 concerts and playing for innumerable performances at the Vienna State Opera. Although Knappertsbusch was born near Wuppertal in Westphalia in 1888, the conductor felt particularly at home in Vienna. When the National Socialists removed the somewhat defiant Musical Director of the Munich State Opera from his post in 1936 in the middle of a performance and forbade him to conduct any further performances or concerts, Knappertsbusch took up a position as conductor at the Vienna State Opera, where Bruno Walter was Artistic Director at the time. As a result he had a particularly close relationship with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, which remained unchanged till the end of the war. After the Second World War Vienna continued to be the centre of his conducting activity - together with Munich and Bayreuth - and until shortly before his death in Munich in 1965, Knappertsbusch’s concerts were the annual highlights of the season not only for the orchestra but also for his many fans.

Staging: Claus Guth

Sets and costumes: Christian Schmidt

Claus Guth’s strikingly experimental new production drew fervent reactions at its premiere at the 2015 Salzburg Festival. On an elegantly spartan set - suggestive of Freud's ‘salon of the unconscious’ - the opera is reworked with amplified noises and ambient sounds substituting for the traditional dialogue and the inclusion of hand-signing doppelgangers who shadow some of the lead characters. “Jonas Kaufmann’s gorgeously sung Florestan”(Financial Times) and Leonora - “triumphantly sung by Adrianne Pieczonka” (The Guardian/Observer) - masterfully execute Guth’s conceptual exploration of the mind’s ability to self-impose its own prison.

Live from the Zurich Opera House, 2004


Camilla Nylund (Leonore), Jonas Kaufmann (Florestan), László Polgár (Rocco), Christoph Strehl (Jaquino) Alfred Muff (Pizarro), Elizabeth Rae Magnuson (Marzelline), Günther Groissböck (Fernando), Boguslaw Bidzinski (First Prisoner) & Gabriel Bermúdez (Second Prisoner)

Orchestra and Chorus of The Zurich Opera House, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Jürgen Flimm (director)

Beethoven’s only opera Fidelio never ceases to fascinate audiences with its spellbinding story of true love. Staged by renowned opera director Jürgen Flimm this production is the outstanding result of the teamwork of the orchestra and chorus of the Zurich Opera House with a cast of magnifi cent singer-actors. Finnish soprano Camilla Nylund in the title role presents a wonderful portrayal of the opposing characters of the loving wife, Leonore, and her alter ego, the young man Fidelio. The internationally renowned tenor Jonas Kaufmann is her counterpart Florestan – the attractive singer plays a convincing suffering prisoner, brought back to life by marital love. László Polgár is the jailer Rocco, torn between greed and sympathy and Alfred Muff takes on the sinister Don Pizarro to complete the setting.

Under the musical direction of Nikolaus Harnoncourt, this production became a highly memorable event. The Austrian conductor is universally celebrated for the structural transparency of his interpretations, his intellectual penetration and his emotional understanding of both music and opera plot. He once called this opera “a hymn of praise to marital love”. Although the work has a long tradition of being interpreted in political terms portraying oppression and liberation, imprisonment and freedom, Harnoncourt is adamant that, for Beethoven, these topics were only a means to an end: “What he was concerned about is love. The real action is between Leonore and Florestan. Essentially, the work is about what can be achieved by true love and the fact that a loving wife is ready to do anything for her husband.”

“Jonas Kaufmann and Camilla Nylund fearlessly [pack] every phrase with compellingly truthful shades of meaning. Harnoncourt's Beethoven is famously raw and earthy: strong on struggle and on the composer's robust musical roots...The cameras' eyes direct us almost imperceptibly to crucial moments of musical and human relationship.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2016 *****

“[Nylund’s] bright soprano is on the right side of heroic while still remaining feminine, the perfect mix for the noble wife disguised as a boy…[Harnoncourt’s] interpretation here sees him at his best. The opening chords of the overture bristle with excitement and dramatic tension [and] his dramatic pacing of the big moments feels just right, and the ensembles move with great style” MusicWeb International, August 2016

“Kaufmann sings his big aria with his customary combination of immaculate technical address, a blend of lyricism with a wide range of dynamics, including serious power when required.” Opera, August 2016

Nikolaus Harnoncourt is one of the few true stars among conductors worldwide. Performances like the New Year’s Concert of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra enable him to reach an audience of millions, displaying the characteristic passion and fiery intensity that identify him, first and foremost, as a true servant of his art.

His first opera production dates from 1971, when he conducted Monteverdi‘s 'Il ritorno d‘Ulisse in patria' at the Theater an der Wien, and soon after this he embarked on a fruitful cooperation with Jean-Pierre Ponnelle at the Zurich Opera.

Harnoncourt has maintained his close connection with the Zurich Opera to this day. Arthaus Musik presents three of his legendary Zurich productions in this unique Opera Collection. Staged by famous directors Ruth Berghaus, Jürgen Flimm and Martin Kušej, with renowned stars of the opera scene as Camilla Nylund, Jonas Kaufmann, Juliane Banse and Peter Seiffert, these recordings are true highlights of Maestro Harnoncourt‘s work.
