Mozart:

Piano Concerto No. 23 in A major, K488


“Finely chiseled, this documentary reveals a point of view of exceptional quality and a rare gift for listening.” Sandrine Marques / Le Monde

An uncommon glimpse into the world of an artist who is considered one of the most talented of his generation: Alexandre Tharaud. Born into an artistic family, Alexandre melds his passion for the piano with his fertile disquiet. The film explores intimate moments in which the artist is faced more with himself than with the audience: a confrontation both tender and brutal with his passion, his inaccessible star.

Philippe Jaroussky is a counter-tenor superstar and deservedly so. In the years since his first solo release on Erato, he has established his reputation as the pre-eminent counter-tenor of his generation through the expressive clarity of his voice and his eclectic choice of repertoire. While Baroque repertoire is naturally a constant mine of music to explore for him, Philippe broke the counter-tenor mould with his 2009 album Opium, an album of French songs from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and included guest appearances from some of France’s best music exports, such as Renaud and Gautier Capuçon, and Emmanuel Pahud.

Following his last two releases of baroque masterpieces – Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater with soprano Julia Lezhneva, and a collection of outstanding opera arias by Neapolitan composer and singing teacher Nicola Antonio Porpora, whose most famous singing student was the castrato Farinelli – Philippe Jaroussky returns to the studio with the orchestra he founded, Ensemble Artaserse, for Pietà, a survey of some of Vivaldi’s most beautiful sacred works. DVD includes video of Antonio Vivaldi Stabat Mater (studio recording) and a video of Philippe Jaroussky following Vivaldi’ steps in Venice.

Bach, J S: Goldberg Variations, BWV988

Bach, J S: Goldberg Variations, BWV988


Zhu Xiao-Mei (piano)

Zhu Xiao-Mei ranks among the greatest pianists of our time and is one of the most renowned interpreters of J. S. Bach’s music. The Goldberg Variations stood at the beginning of her international career and represents the “greatest musical encounter” of her life. “It is a universal piece of music that knows no frontiers”, this is the message of her extraordinary playing which is being celebrated in concert halls around the world. Her unique interpretation has now been captured on DVD for the first time. The live recording was produced at her critically acclaimed concert at the Leipzig Bach Festival at J. S. Bach’s final resting place in St. Thomas Church in 2014.

Michel Mollard’s exquisite documentary “The Return is the Movement of Tao: Zhu Xiao-Mei and the Goldberg Variations” complements the concert recording. Mollard accompanies the pianist to concerts as well as to the reclusiveness of the French Alps and offers insights to the mind of a fascinating artist and her vision of the Goldberg Variations.

In 1786 Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach presented the greatest musical achievements of his century to a captivated audience and enthusiastic reviewers.

Bach and works by George Frideric Handel. As a tribute to the 300th anniversary of C. P. E. Bach the RIAS Kammerchor and the Akademie für Alte Musik in Berlin will revive the memorable concert from April 9, 1786 and reawaken a great historic moment in music history.

Mahler: Symphony No. 9 in D major

Mahler: Symphony No. 9 in D major


Theodor W. Adorno regarded Mahler’s Symphony No. 9 as “the first work of modern music”. Adorno’s teacher, Alban Berg, saw in it “the expression of a tremendous love for this world, a longing to live in peace and to savor Nature to its depths – before the arrival of Death. For it will inevitably come.” This live recording of the composer’s last completed symphony is part of an ongoing Leipzig cycle of Mahler’s symphonies. It confirms once more the Gewandhaus Orchestra’s reputation as an exemplary ensemble for the performance of Mahler’s music. The highest level of performance culture combined with a sharply contoured, transparent, polished, and detailed manner of playing, plus infectious verve and an unmistakable sound characterized by a darkly golden color – these are qualities responsible for the Gewandhaus Orchestra’s international reputation. Since the time of Bruno Walter, the orchestra has developed over the years a deep understanding of the works of Gustav Mahler, which in their collaboration with Riccardo Chailly has been continued.

BONUS: Riccardo Chailly on Mahler 9 and in conversation with Henry‐Louis de La Grange.

Prokofiev: Romeo and Juliet, Op. 64

Prokofiev: Romeo and Juliet, Op. 64


Diana Vishneva (Juliet), Vladimir Shklyarov (Romeo), Alexander Sergeyev (Mercutio), Ilya Kuznetsov (Tybalt) & Islom Baimurado (Benvolio)

Mariinsky Ballet & Mariinsky Orchestra, Valery Gergiev

DVD / BLURAY DOUBLE PLAY: NEW FORMAT

Leonid Lavrovsky’s celebrated production of Prokofiev’s 'Romeo and Juliet', is released for the first time in HD, and in a Double Play, blu-ray and DVD package. Filmed in the historic Mariinsky Theatre in 2013, it stars Mariinsky ballet dancers Diana Vishneva, Vladimir Shklyarov, Alexander Sergeyev, Islom Baimurado, Ilya Kuznetsov and is conducted by Valery Gergiev.

Lavrovsky’s realisation was created at the Mariinsky Theatre in January 1940, and the staging has been treasured in St. Petersburg ever since and this production still honours that original version. Guided by the dramatic force and lyrical power of Prokofiev’s score, Lavrovsky’s choreography creates a grandly moving portrait of the star-crossed lovers and the Renaissance society which frames their tragedy.

Diana Vishneva [Juliet] is a prize-winner of numerous awards, including the People’s Artist of Russia (2007) title and receipient of the State Prize of Russia (2000), as well as founder of the Diana Vishneva Foundation (2010). Her title roles with the Mariinsky ballet include Giselle (Giselle), Nikia in the live cinema broadcast of 'La Bayadère' and Aurora (The Sleeping Beauty). Multiple award winner, Vladimir Shklyarov [Romeo], won 1st prize at the XI International Ballet and Choreography Competition in the “Solo” category (Moscow, 2009). His repertoire with the Mariinsky includes James (La Sylphide), Count Albrecht (Giselle) and Prince Désiré (The Sleeping Beauty). He has also recently starred in 'La Bayadère' which was screened across the globe.
