Janet Baker (mezzo-soprano)

A new 2-CD compilation from Dame Janet Baker's many Decca and Philips recordings, released to mark her 75th birthday on 21 August 2008.

This generously-filled 150-minute programme ranges from arie antiche and baroque arias through to one of Benjamin Britten's last works, the cantata Phaedra, written specially for Janet Baker.

Recordings included in this programme were made between 1961 and 1977 and showcase the many and varied vocal talents of this much-loved, and justifiably internationally-lauded artist.

“A fine selection which demonstrates the English mezzo's huge range of expression in repertory ranging from Baroque to Britten (the cantata Phaedra written for her) and the unique commitment she brought to everything she sang.” BBC Music Magazine, February 2009 *****

Christine Schäfer (soprano) & Eric Schneider (piano/amplified piano)

“Given Christine Schäfer's wide-ranging repertoire, this mixing of 17th-century English and 20th-century American songs is no surprise. Her exemplary clarity of tone and diction, and her emotional commitment to both composers, make for a powerful recital.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2008 ****

“The first part of the disc intersperses Crumb's moderately Coplandesque Three Early Songs (1947) with Purcell favourites like "Sweeter than Roses" and "Music for a While". The sovereign authority of Schäfer's voice and the intensity of her presence makes for a seamless narrative, and the clarity of her diction and innate dramatic sensibility revitalise the Purcell works.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2008

The final track Monteverdi's 'Pur Ti Miro', is an exemplary duet with countertenor Robin Blaze.” BBC Music Magazine, Proms 2007 ****

Purcell:

Stokowski:

Two Ancient Liturgical Melodies


“…even more impressive is the extraordinarily powerful version of the great C minor Passacaglia and Fugue, here given a thrilling, thrusting performance. The orchestra respond superbly to Serebrier's direction which, as a former pupil of Stokowski, he has based on the maestro's recordings and performances. Starting the sequence is the Air from Suite No 3. Serebrier loyally reproduces the ultra-romantic approach taken by Stokowski, with portamento slides between notes and the broadest possible phrasing and a massive rallentando at the end. It is good that we can now accept such a reading as offering a valid view, representing its period. The result is lusciously beautiful, with the Bournemouth strings wonderfully refined.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2006
