Two spectacular gala concerts from the stage of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, are brought together here in their unforgettable glory. In the 1993 Winter Gala, world-leading singers (including Plácido Domingo, Dmitri Hvorostovsky and Kiri Te Kanawa) and dancers (including Darcey Bussell, Lesley

Collier, and Irek Mukhamedov) celebrate the music of Tchaikovsky, in highlights from such opera and ballet favourites as The Queen of Spades and Eugene Onegin, The Nutcracker and The Sleeping Beauty. In the famously glittering 1996 gala concert, Domingo is joined by a cast of opera stars including Angela

Gheorghiu, Roberto Alagna and Susan Graham. Asher Fisch conducts this programme of great opera arias by composers including Bizet, Massenet, Gounod, Mozart and Donizetti.

These classic recordings are preserved in their original Standard Definition and 4:3 picture format, capturing The Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet at a memorable period in their long history.

Vocalise, Op. 34 No. 14

Sabine Devieilhe (soprano)

Pieces (2) in A major for piano 6 hands - Waltz & Romance

Aleksandar Madžar (piano) & Alexander Melnikov (piano)


French pianist Alexandre Tharaud takes on the blockbuster ‘Rach 2’ concerto in a thrilling performance with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and Russian maestro Alexander Vedernikov. It is coupled with more intimate Rachmaninov for piano six-hands (for which Alexandre is flanked by Alexander Melnikov and Aleksandar Madžar) and the icing on the cake: a sublime Vocalise in the original version for voice and piano, with pure-voiced French soprano Sabine Devieilhe.

Alexandre Tharaud’s recorded catalogue is large and eclectic, but this is the first time he has devoted an entire album to Russian repertoire – specifically to the music of Sergei Rachmaninov. “I was still quite young when I first played this concerto,” explains Tharaud. “I adored it … Rachmaninov’s virtuosity really appeals to young pianists. Today, of course I’m still enthralled by the concerto’s virtuosity, but now I’m more interested in its dark shadows: the sense of despair, of staring into the abyss. My interpretation of Rachmaninov has changed a lot over the years.”

“After the famous introductory bars – following the score rather than the composer’s recording – the sweeping first subject enters faster, thankfully, than Richter’s celebrated account but with the same majestic assurance.” Gramophone Magazine, October 2016

Alisa Weilerstein: Chopin & Rachmaninov

Polonaise brillante Op. 3 for cello & piano

Rachmaninov:

Cello Sonata in G minor, Op. 19

Vocalise, Op. 34 No. 14


Alisa Weilerstein (cello) & Inon Barnatan (piano)

Together with long-term duo partner Inon Barnatan, best-selling Decca cellist Alisa Weilerstein records two of the giants of ‘cello chamber music: the Rachmaninov and Chopin sonatas.

Alisa Weilerstein’s debut on Decca with the Elgar Cello Concerto (conducted by Daniel Barenboim; his first recording of this outstanding work since his earlier recording with the legendary Jacqueline du Pre) was received rapturously by critics worldwide; and her subsequent recording of the Dvorak cello concerto no less well-received.

Alisa Weilerstein and Inon Barnatan are two of the world’s leading instrumentalists, and this album clearly shows the benefits of a long-lasting chamber music partnership with two exceptional musicians, captured in their prime.

The Rachmaninov Sonata in G minor for Cello and Piano – premiered with the composer himself playing the fiendishly tricky piano part – is Rachmaninov’s last chamber music work. One of the first major pieces to be written after Rachmaninov overcame “writer’s block” with a course of hypnotherapy, this is a piece to be discovered and treasured.

Chopin’s Cello Sonata in G minor is one of the few works Chopin wrote for instruments other than the piano; and the last of his works to be published in his lifetime. Remarkable for its concentration of material, no work of Chopin’s gave him more trouble; “I write a little and cross out a lot”, wrote Chopin. Alisa and Inon bring out a wealth of feeling in this emotional rollercoaster of a piece.

By contrast, Chopin’s Introduction and Polonaise Brillante is one of his first published compositions. Full of bravura and verve, it has an undeniable feel for the spirit of the dance and a distinctive theme. Then Chopin’s Etude – essentially a nocturne – brings a dramatic change of character and mood “somber, mysterious dreams” (Heller); “a song of happiness irredeemably lost” (Koczalski).

When Alisa Weilerstein and Inon Barnatan perform together, audiences are enthralled, critics enraptured. This disc sets a new benchmark for recordings of these great works, and this exceptional quality of music-making is certain to set the bar for a long time.

“The pair closed with Chopin’s Sonata for Cello and Piano, a work of such fiendish difficulty that even Chopin was convinced that parts of it might be unplayable. Ms. Weilerstein and Mr. Barnatan put that notion to rest with their poise and passion, and they returned amid thunderous applause”

“The glorious ebb and flow of melodic material that courses through the veins of the Rachmaninov and Chopin Sonatas seems absolutely tailor-made for a cellist with the flamboyance and intensity of Alisa Weilerstein. In this superbly recorded recital, she delivers one of the most compelling performances of the Rachmaninov I've ever heard...Barnatan brings great musical insight and a marvellous variety of tone to the hugely demanding piano part.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2016 *****

“it's hard to imagine many cellist-pianist duos more mutually fond of risk-taking. They certainly don't hold back in Rachmaninov's Cello Sonata, often pushing it to the brink…what emerges is an interpretation in which no single colour outstays its welcome. The same goes for Chopin's Cello Sonata, whose sense of restlessness suits this duo well” Gramophone Magazine, November 2015

“Ms. Weilerstein and Mr. Barnatan give rhapsodic and stylish accounts of these impressive works, neither of which turns up that often on recital programs.” San Francisco Chronicle, 5th January 2015

Seven Virtuoso Etudes on Gershwin Songs: No. 3. The Man I Love


Nicholas McCarthy (piano)

Born without his right hand, award-winning British pianist Nicholas Mccarthy is a champion of the brave, dynamic world of left-hand repertoire. here, in his first solo album, he scales the heights of expressive and virtuosic possibility, presenting his own and others’ transcriptions of works – many of them classical favourites, such as Puccini’s “o mio babbino caro” and Gershwin’s “summertime” – alongside pieces written especially for the left hand. the result is a fascinating and absorbing programme which traces the history of this unique genre from its nineteenth-century beginnings to the present day.

“McCarthy offers good, solid, forthright interpretations, especially of the works that appear in their original form. It is an excellent opportunity to celebrate this unusual corner of piano repertoire. But where this CD wins most is in its symbolism: an unlikely candidate for piano stardom overcomes a massive obstacle and fulfils his dream despite everything. That can do more than offer pleasant listening; it can be an example and an inspiration” BBC Music Magazine, December 2015 ****

Rachmaninov:

Vocalise, Op. 34 No. 14

arr. Julius Conus


Leonore Piano Trio: Tim Horton (piano), Benjamin Nabarro (violin) & Gemma Rosefield (cello)

Arensky’s Piano Trios represent a fine example of the Russian romantic piano trio, a form ‘invented’ by Tchaikovsky, Arensky’s close friend and influence.

Piano Trio No 1 is the more popular of the two, dedicated to the cellist Karl Davidoff. Davidoff is regarded as the founder of the Russian school of cello-playing, and Arensky’s dedication accounts for the fact that the cello plays such a prominent role, having most of the principal themes and often seeming to eclipse the violin in importance. Piano Trio No 2 is one composer’s last works, and marks a considerable advance in Arensky’s compositional techniques.

Hyperion is delighted to present the Leonore Piano Trio (Tim Horton, Benjamin Nabarro and Gemma Rosefield, who features as soloist on Hyperion’s Romantic Cello Concerto series Volume 3: Stanford Cello Concertos) in its debut recording.

“here is music for all those who weary of grappling with the complexities of contemporary works to rejoice in an all-Russian fountain of melodic charm...The Leonores play with truly glorious affection and security, and it is hard to imagine playing of a greater empathy.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2014
