Nicolai Ghiaurov’s unmistakable timbre brought him the title “Re dei bassi” – “King of Basses”. In live recordings from two Sunday Concerts by the Münchner Rundfunkorchester he can be heard in key roles from the bass repertoire as well as rarely performed arias by Bizet, Glinka and Rimsky Korsakov.

The program also contains arias from two roles in which Ghiaurov became world-famous: the title role in Boris Godunov and Mephistophèlès in Gounod’s Faust.

- Previously unreleased recordings by Nicolai Ghiaurov

- Documents of the beloved Sunday concerts with the Münchner Rundfunkorchester from the 1960’s under the direction of Georges Prêtre and Alfredo Antonini.

Mariss Jansons conducts Stravinsky and Mussorgsky

Mariss Jansons conducts Stravinsky and Mussorgsky


Mussorgsky:

Pictures at an Exhibition

orch. Ravel. Live Recording, Munich, Herkulessaal der Residenz, 13. / 14. November 2014

Stravinsky:

Petrushka (1947 version)

Live-Recording, Munich, Philharmonie im Gasteig, 14.-17.04.2015


Two well-known masterpieces of Russian music complement each other perfectly on the latest CD of Mariss Jansons and the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks. Firstly, Stravinsky's ballet music "Petrushka" in its 1947 version which, with its smaller orchestra and more prominent piano part (played by Lukas Maria Kuen), is more of an instrumental work, or "a kind of concert piece"; and secondly, Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition." Originally written in 1874 as a piano cycle, it can be heard here in the colourful, universal and engaging orchestral version of 1922 by Maurice Ravel, which made it world-famous.

The recordings were made in November 2014 (Mussorgsky) and April 2015 (Stravinsky) at concerts in the Herkulessaal of the Munich Residenz and in the Philharmonie im Gasteig.
