La Chambre Philharmonique, Emmanuel Krivine

Created on the initiative of Emmanuel Krivine, La Chambre Philharmonique likes to see itself as the achievement of a utopia. An orchestra of a new kind, comprising members of the finest European ensembles motivated by the same musical urgency, La Chambre Philharmonique places pleasure at the heart of a new adventure in music.

It is also a space for research and exchange, identifying the instruments and period techniques appropriate to each repertory.

In May 2014, La Chambre Philharmonique performed the Symphonie Fantastique of Berlioz in a memorable concert at the Cité de la Musique in Paris. It is this occasion that is now presented on DVD. The symphony is complemented by four fascinating bonus features: Emmanuel Krivine discusses with some of the musicians their work in common and the practice of period-instrument performance, three of the orchestra’s principals (violinist, bassoonist and timpanist) demonstrate the specific characteristics of their instruments, and the DVD offers the option of watching the entire symphony with commentary by Krivine.

At the moment when he is about to become Music Director of the Orchestre National de France, here is the rewarding testimony of an illustrious musician, highly respected by all those who work with him, who talks about music with simplicity, humour and sincerity.

Bruckner: Symphony No. 6 in A major

Bruckner: Symphony No. 6 in A major

Semperoper Dresden, September 2015


Since taking up his post as principal conductor of the Dresden Staatskapelle in 2012, Christian Thielemann has launc hed each new concert season with a Bruckner symphony. In autumn 2015 he chose the Sixth for the opening concert at Dresden’s historic Semperoper, and for the Sächsische Zeitung this performance marked 'another Bruckner triumph for Dresden'. Thielemann once more 'conjured up the most magical of sonorities' and 'the orchestra played magnificently under him' (Der Neue Merker).

Donizetti: Roberto Devereux

Donizetti: Roberto Devereux


Mariella Devia (Elisabetta), Sonia Ganassi (Sara), Stefan Pop (Roberto), Mansoo Kim (Duke of Nottingham), Alessandro Fantoni (Lord Cecil), Claudio Ottino (Sir Gualtiero Raleigh), Matteo Armanino (A page), Loris Purpura (A servant of Nottingham)

Orchestra and Chorus of The Teatro Carlo Felice, Francesco Lanzillotta

Donizetti composed Roberto Devereux during a period of intense creativity. The work had an uninterrupted 10-year run after its première in 1837, before going on to enjoy international success throughout Europe and in the Americas, with versions in French, German, Russian and Hungarian. When Donizetti moved to Paris in 1838, he furnished the opera with the overture that

paraphrases the British anthem God Save the Queen. The Queen dominates from her very first appearance, a true protagonist, performed here by the great Mariella Devia: her pure voice, impeccable intonation and great stage presence, all combined with the technical qualities of her voice, led to an extended standing ovation. It was a triumph, too, for Sonia Ganassi (Sarah) and the tenor Stefan Pop (Devereux).

Available also in DVD and Blu-ray with subtitles in Italian, English,

German, French, Japanese and Korean.

Lehár: Paganini

Lehár: Paganini


Antonio Theba (Paganini), Teresa Stratas (Princess Anna Elisa), Peter Kraus (Pimpinelli), Dagmar Koller (Bella Giretti), Johannes Heesters (Prince Felice)

Symphony Orchestra Kurt Graunke, Munich, Wolfgang Ebert

Franz Lehár’s operetta “Paganini” (Vienna, 1925) marked the start of a new period in the composer’s work that was strongly influenced by the tenor Richard Tauber. Lehár now began to write works that were highly demanding in vocal terms and stylistically closely modelled on the opera repertoire. One of

the most successful operettas from this period was undoubtedly “Paganini”, which includes the immortal melody “Gern hab’ ich die Frau’n geküsst”. Now, the legendary 1973 fi lm version of the operetta offers an opportunity to experience once again stars like Teresa Stratas, Peter Kraus, Dagmar Koller and, last but not least, Johannes Heesters.

Schubert: Winterreise

Schubert: Winterreise

Live from the Siemensvilla, Berlin, 1979


Schubert:

Winterreise D911


Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau (baritone), Alfred Brendel (piano)

Franz Schubert’s song cycle Winterreise was written late in his life. It is regarded both as a highlight of the genre and as the touchstone by which lieder singers are judged. To succeed in interpreting Winterreise is the artistic equivalent of a patent of nobility for a singer. The song cycle certainly became one of Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau’s calling cards and it is probably this work that made the baritone an international household name. Time and again his interpretation could be heard in the concert hall, at festivals, on the radio and on numerous records. In this recording made for the Sender Freies Berlin in January 1979, we see two of the leading musicians of their day in the prime of their lives and at the very peak of their art and experience appearing together in the service of Schubert’s Winterreise. Both the experienced Schubert lieder

singer and the Austrian pianist – known throughout the world for his authoritative interpretations of Schubert’s piano music – had performed Winterreise together frequently between 1975 and 1989. In a way, Fischer-Dieskau’s approach to Schubert’s lieder has become the touchstone for today’s singers. This recording of rehearsal and concert offer a glance into the development of a masterly interpretation of a masterwork.

Special Feature: The Rehearsal

This 56-minute documentary offers fascinating insights into how

Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and Alfred Brendel rehearsed prior to

their recording of Schubert’s “Winterreise”.

New Year's Concert 2002


Wiener Philharmoniker, Seiji Ozawa

The Vienna Philharmonic New Year’s Concert It has long been a Philharmonic New Year’s Day tradition to present a program consisting of the lively and at the same time nostalgic music from the vast repertoire of the Johann Strauss family and their contemporaries. These concerts not only delight the audience in the Wiener Musikverein, but also enjoy great international popularity through the worldwide television broadcasts, which now reach over 50 countries. The concert was conducted by Seiji Ozawa for the first time in 2002

and the light-hearted nature of the event finds this always engaging conductor at his most impishly playful.

Helga Papouschek

Graunke Symphony Orchestra, Kurt Graunke

“The Count of Luxembourg”, composed in 1909, is a worthy equal to Léhar’s other operettas in terms of imaginative content, visual ideas and instrumental colouring. After the sensational success of the “Merry Widow” (1905), the composer quickly wrote an operetta that displayed real Parisian flair. This film version offers a wealth of artistic entertainment, with a superb cast that includes Eberhard Wächter, Lilian Sukis, Erich Kunz, Jane Tilden, Peter Fröhlich and Helga Papouschek.

Bavarian Radio Chorus, Munich Radio Orchestra, Heinz Wallberg

With his operetta “Gypsy Love”, premiered in 1910, Franz Lehár succeeded in combining the dramatic genre of opera with rousing Viennese waltzes and Hungarian folksongs. Dragotin has promised the hand of his daughter Zorika to the rich Jonel. Shortly before the engagement is formalised, the nature-loving

Zorika comes across the gypsy Józsi on the Czerna, a mountain river in Romania inhabited by mermaids, and invites him to play music at her engagement party. But when it comes to the engagement kiss from Jonel, she takes fright and fl ees back to the Czerna, where she hopes a glass of water from the river will reveal the future to her …
