Image 5CD-BOX: Choral Classics from Cambridge
This set of 5 CDs showcases the celebrated choral music tradition that is at the heart of Cambridge's Clare College, King's College and St John's College. Featuring a collection of popular choral favourites from composers such as Mozart, Elgar, Mendelssohn, Brahms and Purcell, and an in-depth exploration of Renaissance lamentations, this set also features a recording of Evensong and Vespers at King's, evoking the college's tradition of daily choral singing.

Image The Romantic Cello
This invaluable survey of that most Romantic of instruments includes both the classic concertos of the era, by Dvorak and Saint-Saens, as well as a generous selection of encores and showpieces, performed by a variety of cellists from this and earlier generations. Including Zara Nelsova, in whose classic interpretation of the Dvorak one may readily hear the admiration evinced by the composer's friend Brahms who, on hearing the work, remarked that he would have composed a concerto for the instrument himself had he realised the possibilities inherent in a combination that may present certain problems of balance, pitting the mellow voice of the solo instrument against a full orchestra, but that yet may be overcome through a sensitive songfulness that came beautifully and naturally to Dvorak. Brahms, of course, can be considered to have made good his omission with the late flowering of the Double Concerto. His expansive E minor Sonata is here, alongside the deft turns of Mendelssohn's first sonata (in a performance by Luca Fiorentini on a rare Strad cello), as well as more lyrical sonatas by Chopin and Rachmaninoff, treasured by cellists for their juicy melodies and the opportunity to engage with the idioms of composers who largely wrote for the piano.The last disc opens with perhaps the most famous of all cello encores, The Swan, from Saint-Saens's Carnival of the Animals, which seems perfectly to capture the potential both for melancholy and for imitation of the human voice which places the cello alone among the string family.

Image Russian Ballets (3 CD)
Towards the end of the 19th century, ballet was declining in popularity in Western Europe but acquired an increased significance in Russia. This was thanks in part to the music for dancing which had been part of native operas ever since Glinka founded a school and tradition with Ruslan and Ludmila and A Life for the Tsar. However, it was also due to a succession of gifted French choreographer such as Marius Petipa that the St Petersburg ballet flowered. Minkus, Delibes and Adam, among many others, were commissioned for scores by Petipa, but it was with Tchaikovsky that ballet music would alter radically, away from its incidental, accompanimental role and towards a symphonic status which is recognized by the ballets on this compilation being at least as famous for their music as their dancing. Petipa was responsible for commissioning the composer’s most familiar ballet – perhaps the best-loved ballet of all, The Nutcracker, on which the composer exercised all his mastery of timing and orchestration. Although Serge Diaghilev was the great innovator in commissioning and choreographing music for dancing at the turn of the last century, his example was ignored in Russia under Soviet rule. The great state companies in Leningrad and Moscow continued the 19th century tradition of full-evening ballets to which these examples by Prokofiev (Romeo and Juliet, Cinderella and the more rarely encountered Stone Flower) and Khachaturian (Spartacus and Gayaneh) belong. ‘Dancing,’ said the Danish choreographer August Bournonville, ‘is an expression of joy, a desire to respond to the rhythm of the music.’ That joy is amply illustrated by the suites from eight ballets in this compilation, which would make an invaluable introduction to the artform.

Image Armenian Composers
Mariam Sarkissian, mezzo-soprano
Artur Avanesov, piano

This year's commemoration of the Armenian Genocide has drawn attention to the rich cultural heritage of this "hidden" country, with its unique language, script and folklore.

This new recording presents three Armenian composers of three generations.

The song cycle "Emerald Songs" by Romanos Melikyan is written on words by 8 contemporary Armenian poets, in a spicy Ravelian language inspired by Armenian folk music. Mansuryan is of the same generation and blood group of Schnittke, Gubaidulina, Pärt and Kancheli. Young Avanesov's piano cycle "Feux follets" is in postmodern style, free and associative.

Sung with great intensity and feeling for the idiom by Armenian mezzo soprano Mariam Sarkissian, who recently received an "Orphée d'or" for her CD of vocal works by Tchaikovsky and Cui.

MacMillan's vision has been vital in shaping The Royal Ballet's style and repertory, and what better way to appreciate his art than with this rare chance to experience three contrasting works in a single performance. Abstract, dramatic, humorous - this programme gives a wonderfully varied introduction not just to MacMillan's work but to the beauty and dramatic power of ballet itself. Concerto, to Shostakovich's Second Piano Concerto, contrasts moments of exuberance and elegiac reflection. The Judas Tree places a single woman among 13 men to enact a harrowing event that is recognizably contemporary but with biblical overtones. Elite Syncopations completes the programme with a sparkling evocation of a dance hall that brings ragtime rhythms to the dance, and a ragtime band to the stage.

Image A Beethoven Journey
Leif Ove Andsnes is undoubtedly one of the top pianists of our age. For four years he has been performing and recording the five Beethoven piano concertos, primarily with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra but also with the major conductors & orchestras worldwide - such as Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Philharmonic. Award-winning film-maker Phil Grabsky has been with him throughout.

The film is much more than a portrait of a great pianist on tour - it is an in depth exploration into the much misunderstood life of Ludwig van Beethoven, as revealed by these five masterworks. The relationship between Beethoven and his world is mirrored by the relationship between the pianist and orchestra in these concertos. Grabsky's acknowledged skill is biography and he believes that many people know too little about arguably the greatest composer of all time.

This is an exciting, beautifully cinematic film offering a fresh look at Beethoven through the widely acclaimed performances and articulate insight of the great Leif Ove Andsnes.

Orchestra & Chorus of the Bolshoi Theatre
Teodor Currentzis

Stage direction and set design: Dmitri Tcherniakov

In 2010, for the first time in its history, the Bolshoi Opera presented Alban Berg's masterpiece 'Wozzeck'. Dmitri Tcherniakov's truly historic production is now available in this HD DVD.

The Russian director's aim with this bold, sensitive transposition was "to highlight the hidden sorrows of a late 20th-century man dwelling in a megalopolis." The redoubtably complex title role was entrusted to Austrian baritone Georg Nigl. Nigl studied with Kammersängerin Hilde Zadek. Over the last few years he has worked with, among others, Thomas Hengelbrock and his Baltasar Neumann Ensemble, Jordi Savall and his Hesperion XXI Ensemble, and Giovanni Antonini and Luca Pianca and their Il Giardino Armonico.

American soprano Mardi Byers plays Marie. A native of Colorado, she made her international debut as 'Tosca' in Lübeck and Elisabetta in 'Don Carlos' in Wiesbaden and Basel. She has also sung Donna Anna and Suor Angelica at the New York City Opera, as well as Elisabeth in 'Tannhäuser' and Ariadne. The Proms audience saw her in Mahler 8 in 2010 with Jiri Belohlavek.

Greek conductor Teodor Currentzis directs the Bolshoi Theatre Orchestra and Chorus. Artistic director of the Perm Opera and founder and musical director of the Musica Aeterna ensemble, Currentzis is now to be seen in the world's leading venues: the Opéra de Paris, Opernhaus Zurich, Bayerische Staatsoper Munich, the Royal Opera House Covent Garden and the Teatro Real in Madrid.

Bonus: Introduction to the opera

Un giorno di regno is the rare case of a musical comedy by Verdi. But his second stage work proved a complete fiasco when unveiled at La Scala, Milan, in 1840 and more than half a century was to pass before he attempted a second comedy with his final opera, Falstaff. Today, conversely, Verdi's early melodrama giocoso enjoys increasing popularity thanks to its wellspring of musical ideas and effervescent melodies.

Image Roberto Devereux (DVD)
In the last and most dramatic aria in “Roberto Devereux,” one of the four Tudor period operas composed by Donizetti in 1837 (along with “Anna Bolena,” “Maria Stuarda,” and “Il Castello di Kenilworth,”) the protagonist, Queen Elizabeth I of England, exclaims: “I do not reign, I do not live.” This statement encapsulates great operatic themes, and it is the culmination of an opera that reveals the passions of characters who live among palace intrigues. Written in the mature period of the leader of Italian romanticism, the opera displays a great vocal virtuosity, and is an example of Donizetti prizing the voice above all in the genre. The staging, by South African director Alessandro Talevi, who has been very successful in great opera houses as well as with more experimental theatre, places the play in an undetermined period, focusing on the chiaroscuro. Bruno Campanella conducts the production with Mariella Devia in the lead. “This was a most promising start to the season, a first-class rendition of a neglected work and a joyful confirmation of Mariella Devia’s well-deserved place in bel canto history.” (Bachtrack.com)

A new 'Don Giovanni' in Aix from renowned Russian stage director Dmitri Tcherniakov, awarded best director at the International Opera Awards 2013, and conductor Louis Langrée.
More than two centuries after its creation, the emotional pull of this supreme opera remains absolutely intact. Dmitri Tcherniakov duly revisits the myth and makes the seducer of Seville a 'man without qualities', a cipher whose words have a hypnotic power over women. His words will disrupt the proprieties ruling the Commandatore's family. His words are also what makes Don Juan such a subversive figure and the embodiment of one of the most powerful modern European myths.

Leading the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra is one of the best Mozart conductors, Louis Langrée. Bo Skovhus portrays a dispirited Don Giovanni, old playboy and anti-hero. Kyle Ketelsen is his servant Leporello, currently a shoe-in for this rôle.

The superb female trio is composed of Marlis Petersen (Donna Anna), Kristine Opolais (Elvira) and Kerstin Avemo (Zerlina).

...With his new production for NETHERLANDS OPERA of Orfeo, Pierre Audi has completed a well-received cycle of Monteverdi’s major stage works. On stage we saw the usual Audi juxtaposition of elements: some vast tree trunks, a stone wall, an immense round pond, and later, fire. The prologue was magnificently sung by the counter-tenor David Cordier as La Musica. … The chorus sang with such spirit and refinement that one regretted that they did not have more to do. … Stephen Stubbs, seconded by Emmanuelle Haïm playing various keyboard instruments, led his ensemble Tragicomedia with obvious affection and understanding. All the instrumentalists played with fluent ease, a long way from the scratchy ‘authentic’ bands of 20 years ago...

Philharmonia Zürich, Chor der Oper Zürich / Fabio Luisi

Andreas Homoki, Stage Director

The soldier Wozzeck (Christian Gerhaher) flits through a world that he is unable to decipher. The doctor torments him with absurd medical experiments; the captain humiliates and ridicules him. And Wozzeck’s lover, Marie (Gun-Brit Barkmin), with whom he has a child, cuckolds him with the drum major. Wozzeck becomes a murderer, stabbing Marie to death. Georg Büchner’s drama fragment, on which Alban Berg based his first opera, is an unflinching case study of social injustice and human suffering. But it is also a grotesque piece that thrives on exaggeration – and in which only a fine line separates the unfathomable from the ridiculous. Accordingly, director Andreas Homoki forgoes all realism. His nightmarishly radical production is inspired by puppet theatre. Christian Gerhaher’s role début as Wozzeck can only be described as sensational: his capacity for vocal and dramatic subtlety is simply breath-taking. At the rostrum of the Philharmonia Zurich, Fabio Luisi explores both the expressionistic and the more intimate aspects, reminiscent of chamber music, in Berg’s seminal score.

‘The quite sensational Chorus and Orchestra, revealed a world-class theatre company, with a conductor London should book soon.

John Copley's enduring production of one of the most famously melodious and popular of all operas is a classic of the Royal Opera repertory. With historically accurate designs by Julia Trevelyan Oman and an excellent cast headed by Hibla Gerzmava and Teodor Ilincai, this 2009 revival, in which conductor Andris Nelsons makes a distinguished Royal Opera House debut, does full justice to Puccini's masterpiece. Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true surround sound.

"[Ilincai] gave a thoroughly assured and engaging performance. ... Sumptuously sung, Gerzmava's portrayal was sensitive and well-rounded - timid yet warm and attractive in her first scene with Rodolfo, intimate rather than melodramatic in her final death-bed moments." Classical Source
