Les Sacqueboutiers de Toulouse, Florent Tisseyre

A magical creation mixing together puppets, Cervantes and Spanish Renaissance music.

Puppets and puppeteers, narrator, singers, musicians: such is the remarkable team that Les Sacqueboutiers brought together for an original musical show. They bring to the stage the extravagant madness of Don Quichotte through his delusional life, tilting at windmills as well as the encounter with Dulcinea del Toboso, or the episode of 'El retablo de Maese Pedro'.

Les Sacqueboutiers are an ensemble based in Toulouse, playing on early brass instruments. They have been in existence for more than 30 years, during which time they have built up a reputation as one of the finest early music ensembles, regarded as a reference in the interpretation of 17th-century instrumental music, particularly that of Italy and Germany.

When they decided to form Les Sacqueboutiers in 1974, Jean-Pierre Canihac and Jean-Pierre Mathieu were among the first to embark on the adventurous rediscovery of early instruments. The quality of their work soon attracted attention, and they took part in the groundbreaking recording of Monteverdi's 'Vespro della Beata Vergine', conducted by Michel Corboz. Since then, they have performed music ranging from the Renaissance to Mozart, with many prestigious ensembles including Les Arts Florissantsand the Ens Clément Janequin. The group comprises a nucleus of cornetts and sackbuts, which are joined, as the needs arise, by other instruments (violins, viols, bassoons, shawms) and vocalists.

James Rhodes (piano)

With childhood abuse, drug addiction and suicide attempts behind him, James is not your typical concert pianist but with his passion and rock-star aura, he is bringing new audiences to classical piano. In 'Piano Man', James plays the music of his favourite composers, including Bach, Beethoven and Chopin, many of whom had, like James, troubled lives. In this highly personal collection, James explains how they’ve given him solace in his darkest moments and why we should all be listening. With stunning solo piano performances and witty insight into these lives 'Piano Man' is an exciting and radical new approach.

Mahler: Symphony No. 5 in C sharp minor

Mahler: Symphony No. 5 in C sharp minor


As Riccardo Chailly points out, “The Fifth begins with a dark, gloomy, and tragic tone, but then is enlivened in the Scherzo and Adagietto, and eventually ends with a more positive character in the Finale – perhaps for the last time in Mahler’s life. The Adagietto is a revelation, a spiritual oasis. It is not an expression of pain, but rather Mahler’s declaration of love to Alma – a song without words.“ With the Gewandhaus Orchestra, Chailly gives the piece an unsurpassed intensity of sound and emotional expression. He achieves a compelling arc of tension in which the symphony’s unique fascination unfolds. The Wiener Zeitung characterized Chailly’s interpretation as „impressive with powerful and unreserved intensity.“

Claudio Abbado conducts Brahms, Schoenberg & Beethoven

Claudio Abbado conducts Brahms, Schoenberg & Beethoven


Beethoven:

Symphony No. 3 in E flat major, Op. 55 'Eroica'

Brahms:

Tragic Overture, Op. 81

Schoenberg:

Lied der Waldtaube (from Gurrelieder)

Mihoko Fujimura (alto)

Orchestral Interlude (from Gurrelieder)


With his very own “mysterious seductive power and legendary elegance” (Le Monde), Claudio Abbado opened for the last time the LUCERNE FESTIVAL in the summer of 2013. Only a few months later, the world had to bid farewell to a monumental artist, humanist, great conductor and orchestra founder. Even in the concert itself, documented here, lived a moment of farewell, as the three great works performed tell of the transience of life. The centerpiece of the Eroica is the funeral march revealing “abysses of shattering dimension” - an “intense experience” (Neue Zürcher Zeitung). This record, the last audio-visual documentation of his work, captures once again the extraordinary atmosphere of “vibrant emotionality” that always emerged when Abbado created music with his “orchestra of friends”.

Donizetti: Maria Stuarda

Donizetti: Maria Stuarda

Live at the Metropolitan Opera, 2013


Joyce DiDonato (Maria Stuarda), Elza van den Heever (Elisabetta), Matthew Rose (Talbot), Joshua Hopkins (Cecil), Matthew Polenzani (Leicester), Maria Zifchak (Anna Kennedy)

The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and Chorus, Maurizio Benini

On New Year’s Eve 2012 Joyce DiDonato became the first singer to take the title role in Donizetti’s Maria Stuarda at New York’s Metropolitan Opera. With her at its heart, the production became, in the words of Opera magazine, “a high point of the season and of the company’s performance history of bel canto operas”.

New Year’s Eve 2012 brought the first-ever performance at New York’s Metropolitan Opera of Donizetti’s Maria Stuarda, famed for its incendiary – if fictional – confrontation between Mary Stuart (Mary, Queen of Scots) and Queen Elizabeth I of England.

As the New York Times wrote: “The production stars the great American mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato in the title role ... [Her] performance will be pointed to as a model of singing in which all components of the art form – technique, sound, color, nuance, diction – come together in service to expression and eloquence.” The performance on this DVD took place on January 19th 2013 and was broadcast to cinemas around the world.

Based on a play by Friedrich Schiller, Maria Stuarda achieved new currency in the 1960s, and the title role has attracted such legendary singers as Joan Sutherland, Leyla Gencer, Beverley Sills and Janet Baker. “To have brought this character to life at the Metropolitan Opera for the first time in its history is an incredible privilege,” said Joyce DiDonato. “It is a role that has been inhabited by the best of the best – each star singer bringing a completely different set of strengths to her treacherous phrases and her dramatic journey. To have had the chance to put my stamp on her with such a supportive team will, I’m certain, always remain a career highlight for me.”

Opera magazine duly described DiDonato’s “glowingly-sung, fully-formed portrayal” as “a high point of the season and of the company’s performance history of bel canto operas”.

Directing the production, with its striking use of vivid colors and stark imagery, was David McVicar, and Maurizio Benini conducted a cast that also featured the imposing South African soprano Elza van den Heever, making her Met debut as – again in the words of the New York Times – “a vocally burnished and emotionally tempestuous Elizabeth ... Her voice has penetrating depth and character. She turns flights of coloratura passagework into bursts of jealousy and defiance as Elizabeth contends with the threat that Mary, a blood relative, poses to her reign in England.” As the Earl of Leicester, caught between the rival queens, American tenor Matthew Polenzani brought “melting sound and appealing vulnerability to the role”.

The magnificent final scene of the opera sees Mary preparing for her execution. “What can be said about the final 20 minutes of this opera?” asks Joyce DiDonato. “It is like being shot out of a cannon and there is no slowing down or adjusting along the way. Mary is certainly terrified and yet she manages to find a deep reservoir of determination and fortitude that enables her to climb to her death. She has finally found her peace.”

Karim's Journey

Karim's Journey

A Voyage Of Discovery


The Beethoven Orchestra, Karim Said

A film which traces the development of an exceptional musical talent from childhood to the beginnings of musical maturity.

This is the latest in our series of films with young artists in the early stages of their careers, the others were Jacqueline du Pré, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Daniel Barenboim, Pinchas Zukerman, Itzhak Perlman, Evgeny Kissin and Daniil Trifonov.

Karim Said was born in Amman where he studied percussion with his father and the piano with Agnes Victorovna Bashir (alumna of the Gnessin School, Moscow). He has been applauded by established musicians and juries in several countries and already won nine international prizes. His distinguishing characteristics are his naturalness, both in his music and his personality, his humour, his intelligence and a total lack of pretence but, above and beyond these things, it is the way in which his music gets through to his audiences and touches people, that sets him apart.

Our film seeks to capture all of these qualities and to watch his youthful progress in a story with which a great many people will be able to identify worldwide.

Karim Said is a lively fellow with a very endearing gift. He is a true musician, similar in some ways to Edwin Fischer or to Karim’s mentor, Daniel Barenboim.

The film has been shown on television by the BBC and in Finland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Australia, Estonia and in the Barbican Centre in London.

Bruckner: The Mature Symphonies (Symphony No. 7)

Bruckner: The Mature Symphonies (Symphony No. 7)


Bruckner:

Symphony No. 7 in E Major


In Anton Bruckner’s 7th Symphony, the listener encounters a music characterized by great spaciousness and profound solemnity, a music which speaks of grief and lamentation, but also of their transcendence. With its monumental architecture and intensity of sound, the symphony has moved listeners ever since its triumphal premiere in 1884. The Guardian calls Daniel Barenboim’s London interpretation “Tremendous … Barenboim and the Staatskapelle seem to have this work in their systems, and the overall impression was of music unfolding organically at its own pace rather than of a work being self-consciously interpreted or led.”
