Dvorak: Rusalka, Op. 114

Live Recording from The Opéra National De Paris – Opéra Bastille 2002


Renée Fleming, Larissa Diadkova, Sergei Larin, Franz Hawlata, Eva Urbanova & Michel Sénéchal

Orchestra and Choirs of the Opéra national de Paris, James Conlon (director) & Robert Carsen (director)

Set Design and Costumes by Michael Levine

At a time when the verismo operas enjoyed great success, the Czech composer Antonin Dvorak turned to the world of fairy tales for his penultimate opera. Finally his hopes were fulfi lled and one of his works for the stage was successful. Today Rusalka is as popular with Czech children and adults as Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel is in Germany. With René Fleming in the title role as Rusalka, this production is a rare and outstanding document for a modern staging of this Czech national opera.

An American in Paris, tone poem

Wagner:

Lohengrin: Prelude to Act 3


Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

Hundreds of millions watched the historic concert on television. Now exclusively on DVD: the New York Philharmonic concert in Pyongyang.

Music became diplomacy when this courageous musical project united Americans and North Koreans.

The musicians went from strength to strength in a beautiful programme which illustrated the excellence of the orchestra.

Lorin Maazel once more proved his reputation as one of the best contemporary conductors.

Includes previously unreleased documentary with 53 min of exclusive material.

"Astounding was the fact that the orchestra played the North Korean national anthem and the Star Spangled Banner on a stage flanked by flags of both nations … a rare moment of harmony, proving the power of music that bridges the divides." The Korea Times (South Korea)

"For at least 90 minutes in a theatre in Pyongyang it was possible … to believe that 55 years of cold-war hostility were coming to an end." James Miles, The Economist

“Both fascinating and enjoyable, this comes warmly recommended.” Presto Classical, 6th October 2008

Zubin Mehta conducts Mozart, Bartók & Dvorak

Zubin Mehta conducts Mozart, Bartók & Dvorak

Music Center, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Los Angeles, January 1977


Bartók:

Concerto for Orchestra, BB 123, Sz.116

Dvorak:

Carnival Overture, Op. 92

Symphony No. 8 in G major, Op. 88

Slavonic Dance No. 8 in G minor, Op. 46 No. 8

Mozart:

Bassoon Concerto in B flat major, K191


Zubin Mehta, at the age of 26, was the youngest ever conductor to head a major American orchestra. Truly ingenious, he led them to international acclaim.

This DVD was recorded at the height of this collaboration, and beautifully portrays an emerging star.

In his youth, Mehta was already so much more than a conductor. His profound connection with the orchestra leads to a unity of sound which is rare in today's jet-set reality.

He understands how to stretch the orchestra technically because he knows it inside out.

In turn, the orchestra inspires Mehta. In their joyful collaboration, hidden musical meanings emerge.

Mehta shows his versatility in his interpretations of great works from the 18th, 19th and 20th century.
