Verdi: Rigoletto

Verdi: Rigoletto

A stage performance of the Opernhaus Zürich, June 2014


Saimir Pirgu (Il Duca di Mantova), George Petean (Rigoletto), Aleksandra Kurzak (Gilda), Andrea Mastroni (Sparafucile), Judith Schmid (Maddalena) & Julia Riley (Giovanna)

Philharmonia Zürich & Chor der Oper Zürich, Fabio Luisi (conductor) & Tatjana Gürbaca (stage director)

Set and Lighting Designer: Klaus Grünberg

Costume Designer: Silke Willrett

Grand festivities are held at the court of the Duke of Mantua. But the community which enjoys itself no longer knows values and amuses itself out of deadly boredom. The most cynical of all is court jester Rigoletto. He only wants to protect his daughter Gilda against the depraved world. He prohibits her everything – the young woman, however, goes her own way. On the first DVD of the new label Philharmonia Records we present Giuseppe Verdi’s popular opera «Rigoletto» live from the Opernhaus Zürich. Therewith, Director Tatjana Gürbaca – chosen as the Director of the Year 2013 by the «Opernwelt» – succeeded in producing a scenically reduced as well as expressively poetic production, acclaimed by press and public alike. Fabio Luisi, general music director of the Opernhaus Zürich and one of the leading interpreters of Italy’s opera repertory, stands at the desk of the Philharmonia Zürich.

Schubert:

Symphony No. 8 in B minor, D759 'Unfinished' - Allegro moderato


It was a deeply affecting and appropriate farewell. The spirit of Claudio Abbado, the great conductor and founder of orchestras who died in January 2014, was present in music, words, and silence. Thousands upon thousands came to the Basilica di Santo Stefano in Bologna and the Piazza della Scala in Milan to pay their last respects. In Lucerne, the members of the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA paid tribute to this extraordinary man and friend with a deeply moving concert – “The emotional intensity was unbelievable; this could only be achieved by true musicians, by those capable of love.” (Neue Zürcher Zeitung) Friends and associates look back fondly on Claudio Abbado and speak of how they experienced these moments of grief and farewell.

Steen-Andersen: Black Box Music

Steen-Andersen:

Black Box Music

Run Time Error #1+2


Oslo Sinfonietta, Hakon Stene

The Danish composer Simon Steen-Andersen’s audio-visual work Black Box Music is a surprising, energetic, noisy and yet profoundly entertaining deconstruction of traditional musical drama. The starting point is the classical setting of a conductor in front of an orchestra – but quickly the scenery explodes in musical and choreographic energy ad absurdum, bending the conductor’s role through puppet theatre, hand choreography and eventually a musical performance involving tuning forks, finger snaps, rubber bands and the construction of a musical machine within the black box.

The DVD also includes Steen-Andersen’s signature work Run Time Error, filmed at the Royal Library in Copenhagen, as well as a short documentary, and thus offers a fascinating meeting with one of Nordic Music’s most visionary voices today.

Since its conception in 2012, Black Box Music has been performed 15 times in 9 different countries. The work was nominated for the Nordic Council Music Prize 2014.

JS Bach and Vivaldi’s' Magnificat's: desert island repertoire to illustrate the splendour of the orchestra Le Concert des Nations and choir of La Capella Reial de Catalunya. Jordi Savall offers a vivid and striking performance of these two masterpieces, recorded live at the Royal Chapel in Versailles in 2013. Each of them is introduced by a concerto by the same composer in the same tonality.

The superlative performance of Pierre Hantaï in the Concerto BWV1052 is another jewel to the crown of this album.

Phill Niblock: Brazil 84

Phill Niblock: Brazil 84

16mm film with music soundtrack by Phill Niblock


Niblock:

Three Orchids for 3 orchestras

Orchestra of the SEM Ensemble, Petr Kotik

Two by Tom for 2 orchestras

Trio Scordatura (Amsterdam) and the Nelly Boyd Ensemble (Hamburg)

Three Orchids

Trio Scordatura


Phill Niblock (b.1933) is an intermedia artist using music, film, photography, video and computers. He makes thick, loud drones of music, filled with microtones of instrumental timbres which generate many other tones in the performance space. Simultaneously, he presents films / videos which look at the movement of people working, or computer driven abstract images. 'Brazil 84' is from Niblock’s series “The Movement of People Working.” 16mm, unedited long shots, carefully framed to compress single movements, shot in rural and urban settings, capturing people in their working environments: men and women using their hands and body to an eternal working choreography that seems tuned to the microtonal universe of Niblock’s music.

All these images are timeless, they could have been shot today, in the ‘60s or even earlier in the century. All these images have a perfect timing, a perfect framing, captured not as a document but more as a choreographic gesture, as visual music. The images are raw, colours are saturated and the sound seems to happen in your head. Phill Niblock says: “In 1984, I returned to Brazil, deciding to travel the coast, closest to the ocean, from Salvador, Bahia, to as far north as I could get in the time I had. I was the sole film crew, carrying the camera bag and tripod, loading the film, reading the light... The film from that trip is the material on this DVD. And it was beautiful to see that country and those people.”

Originally silent, Niblock chose to add his music as the soundtrack, as he often does during screenings of his films. These works, specially compiled for this release, are presented in both stereo and surround mixes. For this DVD, a new transfer was made of the original 16mm film, which was then restored under Niblock’s supervision. The Digipak package contains a booklet of essays by Niblock, Bob Gilmore (music), Carlos Casas (film) and Johan Vandermaelen (the recordings).

From today on your name is Sara (Ab Heute heisst du Sara)

From today on your name is Sara (Ab Heute heisst du Sara)

By Volker Ludwig and Detlef Michel


Grips Theatre Berlin

Lyrics: Volker Ludwig

Music: Hansgeorg Koch

Based on the autobiography 'Ich trug den gelben Stern', published in English as 'Outcast: A Jewish Girl in Wartime Berlin' by Inge Deutschkron

1933. Inge is eleven years old, a bright Berlin kid, who refuses to understand why all of a sudden she is not allowed to play on the street. In the years after that for Inge, being a Jew means not only humiliation, attacks and restrictions, but also never going dancing or to the cinema. It means growing up without having been young. “Starting today your name is Sara,” a police officer tells 16-year-old Inge in 1938 and stamps a “J” on her ID card. “J” as in Jew. From that point on everything changed in the life of the self-confident, young Berliner. Constantly on the run from the Nazis, she and her mother wander through Berlin from one hiding place to the other….

The play, based on Inge Deutschkron’s book 'Ich trug den gelben Stern', tells a story in 33 scenes. Of the fear of the hunted. Of numerous individuals who helped Inge and her mother and who became, for Inge Deutschkron, the “quiet heroes.” And last but not least, of the fierce courage of a young girl who refused to give up. It has had 350 sold-out performances in the GRIPS Theater and is still part of its repertoire. In Berlin alone more than 120,000 theatergoers have seen the play since its premiere in 1989. In the meantime it has been staged by 42 theatres. Berlin’s GRIPS Theater, founded in 1969 under the influence of the student movement, is today the world’s most famous theatre for children and young people. As a comedic, musical “hang-in-there” Theater, it deals with the real problems of its audiences.

After many years working as a journalist in Tel Aviv, Inge Deutschkron lives once again in Berlin, significantly encouraged by her experiences with the play 'From today, your name is Sara'.

Ravel: Concert for a Deaf Soul

Ravel: Concert for a Deaf Soul

A Play for Ragna Schirmer and Puppets about Maurice Ravel


Ravel:

Miroirs, 5 pieces for piano

Gaspard de la Nuit

Pavane pour une infante défunte


Katharina Kummer, Nils Dreschke, Sebastian Fortak, Lars Frank (puppeteers & actors) & Ragna Schirmer (piano)

Stage Director: Christoph Werner

Film Director: Axel Fuhrmann

'Concert for a Deaf Soul' is a theatrical take on the secretive life of French composer Maurice Ravel. A harmonious collaboration between Halle Puppet Theatre and pianist Ragna Schirmer has produced an "evening of empathy, filled with love for Ravel and his music." Scenes from the life of Ravel alternate and merge with some of his most impressive pieces for piano. Music, imagination, puppets and actors conflate into a touching and poetic experience.

Pianist Ragna Schirmer is one of the most distinguished artists of the younger generation. She has been awarded a total of 15 first prizes, becoming the only person to win the International Johann Sebastian Bach Competition in Leipzig twice. Ragna Schirmer has performed with the Münchner Philharmoniker under Zubin Mehta, Gewandhausorchester Leipzig under Herbert Blomstedt, Orchestre National de France under Kurt Masur and other orchestras. Her CD's have received numerous awards and excellent reviews throughout Europe (Diapason, Le Monde de la Musique, Gramophone, FonoForum, Crescendo).

Euripides interprets 'Elegy', the grand ancient song of lament, as a “barbaric, Asian cry of sorrow”. To some extent an exotic sound coloration also infuses the elegiac compositions of the European masters of romantic and early modern music that have been assembled for this CD.

Twenty-three year old Dutch cellist Harriet Krijgh is one of today’s most exciting and promising young cellists. Harriet has been invited on to the 'Rising Star' series of the European Concert Hall Organisation (ECHO) for the 2015/16 season - she was nominated by Musikverein and Konzerthaus Vienna.
