Sony Classical is pleased to announce the release of ‘The Sarajevo Concert’ by the Vienna Philharmonic under Franz Welser-Möst. On June 28th, 2014, the Vienna Philharmonic played under Franz Welser-Möst the Concert in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, commemorating the Centenary of the Assassination at Sarajevo on June 28th, 1914. The concert took place in the National Library of Sarajevo, metres from the site where Austro-Hungarian heir Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated exactly 100 years previously. This invitation-only event was transmitted by EUROVISION to TV and radio broadcasters around the world as part of a co-production involving EBU Members BHRT (Bosnia & Herzogovina), ZDF (Germany) and France Télévisions. Performance fees were waived for the concert, which featured a musical program with strong connections to the historical events of 1914-1918, inviting reflection, analysis and remembrance of an era-defining conflict. The concert was relayed free to giant screens outside the Vijećnica to a large public audience.

Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme is the sparkling result of the union of the geniuses of Molière and Lully, working together for the pleasure of Louis XIV. Here, Molière is served by Denis Podalydes’s staging, and Lully by Christophe Coin and the Ensemble Baroque de Limoges, with costumes by Christian Lacroix.

This work’s comic force has not aged a bit, and its ability to make text and music coexist remains marvellously intact.

Lang Lang (piano) with dancers of the Houston Ballet

Choreographed by Stanton Welch

In November 2013 Lang Lang and internationally acclaimed choreographer Stanton Welch teamed up to explore a new collaboration by combining a live piano recital with a live ballet performance. The performances took place at the renowned Théâtre des Champs Elysées in Paris, France over four evenings with 16 dancers of the Houston Ballet, one of the largest and most prestigious ballet companies of the United States. Stanton Welch's choreography is built upon a selection of piano music by Chopin, chosen by Lang Lang because of its visual nature and dance potential. This 85-minute film captures the complete performance and offers an opportunity to re-live an unforgettable live experience. On the 'Sony Classical' label, this is a standard DVD & Blu-Ray packaging, with full colour booklet in English.

Produced by Alexei Lubimov, A Film by Alexandre Bragé.

Live recording of the concert at the School of Dramatic Arts, Moscow, 7 March 2011

In the period from 1947–1988 Galina Ustvolskaya wrote six piano sonatas. These Sonatas are the laboratory of her spiritual quest: In them there is the combination of the creation of the universe and maximum personal deepening and confessing. Her work recalls discoveries in physics, showing that the macrocosm and microcosm are built to the same laws. Galina Ustvolskaya (1919-2006) spent her life in St Petersburg, where she studied with Shostakovich (declining a marriage proposal from him) and in turn taught composition at the conservatory. She was a reclusive figure whose mature music deals mostly in extremes.The First Sonata is vaguely similar in style to Shostakovich. The first and second movements of this sonata bring to mind Shostakovich's compositions from the 1920s, while the third movement is reminiscent of work he did in the 1970s. But the Second Sonata is different; its musical language is more sacred in nature. At about 18 minutes, the Third Sonata is the longest. In it, Ustvolskaya's style achieves its culmination. The Fourth Sonata is closest in form to a suite. There are echoes of the 12 Preludes (1953). Ustvolskaya wrote the Fifth Sonata in ten sections across a period of nearly thirty years. It has a "theme" running through it which consists of a single sound: that of the first octave. This sound keeps appearing, as if symbolising a kind of centre of the universe or of the keyboard, or of the human and divine spirit. The Sixth Sonata is the last and the shortest. In it, Ustvolskaya introduces new techniques to her music, involving playing the piano using the palms of the hands and the elbows. Alexei Lubimov had the idea for a performance of all of Ustvolskaya's piano sonatas during a single concert while he was studying her music with his students: “A Moscow theatre, the School of Dramatic Art, gave us the use of its unusual ‘Globe Hall’ for this project. The hall is shaped like an octohedron, with three tiers of seating around a central empty space [...]. The acoustics of this cramped space concentrated sounds and carried them upwards. The audience was at the very centre of Ustvolskaya's sound laboratory and was able, quite literally, to be inside the instrument and inside its sound.”

In the golden age of the 1920s and 1930s, the fabled ballroom “El Palacio” in Buenos Aires was home to the day’s legendary tango dancers and musicians, and even today it remains a meeting place for stars of the Argentine tango scene. The great Rodolfo Mederos, the incomparable Juan Carlos Godoy, as well as Astor Piazzolla’s musical partners Teresa Parodi and Fernando Suárez Paz all here take part in this electrifying “Fiesta del Tango”, while on the dance floor celebrated couples present consummate tango performances. This uncommon experience in an authentic atmosphere tells many stories of the tango – stories of longing, passion, and melancholy.
