In 2009, LSO Live released an acclaimed recording of Haydn s Die Schöpfung (The Creation) conductedby Sir Colin Davis. This month, Sir Colin returns to the music of Haydn with a superb cast of young singers for his later oratorio Die Jahreszeiten (The Seasons). Following the success of Die Schöpfung, which had swiftly gained popularity throughout Europe, Haydn s librettist Baron Gottfried van Swieten suggested another project, based on James Thomson s pastoral epic, The Seasons. One of Haydn

Shostakovich: Symphonies Nos.5 & 9 by Kirov Orchestra, St Petersburg [Orchestra]When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply. Gergiev pairs Shostakovich's most popular symphony with one of his wittiest. The Fifth was a lifesaver for the composer, literally. He'd come under severe attack from Stalin and his minions over the opera Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk, and Siberia or worse loomed. The Fifth was
Sibelius: Symphony No.2, Pohjola's Daughter
mpn: LSO0605, ean: 0822231160526,
4.0 out of 5 stars with 11 reviews
Sibelius was one of the 20th century's greatest and most innovative symphonists, with a musical style evoking beauty, mystery, colour and light. Influenced as much by a period of living in Italy as by his Finnish homeland, the Second Symphony marked a major step in his development as a composer, and remains one of his most popular works..

Music of Peter Lieberson (Rilke Songs, The Six Realms, Horn Concerto)
4.7 out of 5 stars with 77 reviews
Peter Lieberson's is certainly one of the most refreshing compositional voices to have entered the repertoire of the world s leading orchestras during the past several decades. Lieberson's music ranges broadly: his compositions address the listener with a generous variety of character, while his harmonic palette expresses richly developed hues of both tonality and atonality. This CD features premiere recordings of three major works, opening with a setting of five Rilke poems written for the
Wagner: Die Walkure / Tannhauser- (2) excerpts (second Ring cycle, 1955)
mpn: TES1432, ean: 0749677143220,
4.6 out of 5 stars with 7 reviews
The release of Joseph Keilberth's legendary stereo recordings of the first cycle of the 1955 Ring at Bayreuth brought Testament worldwide acclaim. Partly for recording security, partly out of interest, Decca's engineers also recorded the second cycle, from which this first-ever release of Die Walkure is drawn. While taping both the Ring cycles and the performances of Der fliegende Hollander (also conducted that year by Keilberth, see Testament SBT2 1384), the Decca team also made some

SWR Big Band: Live at the Kulturpalast Dresden
4.8 out of 5 stars with 10 reviews
Perhaps no other musical style has exerted a greater influence on the culture of the first half of the 20th century than Jazz. This utterly American music travelled to every corner of the globe: from Shanghai to St. Petersburg; from New Orleans to New Dehli, from Harlem to well... Haarlem. While classical composers embraced the rhythmic vitality and melodic freedom of their own compositions, others sought to legitimize Jazz in the concert hall including: Debussy, Stravinsky, Hindemith and
Beethoven: Late String Quartets (Great Recordings of the Century)
4.7 out of 5 stars with 138 reviews
This album is part of a series of twenty must-have titles from the Warner Classics catalog, featuring their original and well-known iconic covers. The members of the Alban Berg Quartett learned and refined their art at the very heart of the Viennese musical tradition. Here, in transcendent live performances recorded at Vienna’s Konzerthaus, they rise to the challenge of the complex and ambitious works that stand at the summit of the chamber repertoire: Beethoven’s Late Quartets.

4.6 out of 5 stars with 86 reviews
Two of the world's legendary pianists join each other for a virtuoso recital of Brahms, Rachmaninov, Schubert and Ravel. Recorded live this past August at the Salzburg Festival, the recording features Martha Argerich and Nelson Freire in an astonishing program. The works by Brahms, Rachmaninov and Ravel are all better known in their orchestral versions, but each was arranged for two pianos by the composer, and it is in this spirit (avoiding the imitation of orchestral effects and concentrating

András Schiff. Piano. Live
By Naxos of America, Inc.
4.2 out of 5 stars with 90 reviews
One of the most prominent pianists of modern times, Andras Schiff nevertheless does not belong to the so-called competition format. The musician who earned the pedestal of philosopher pianist, a representative of intellectual musical tradition in its high apprehension, has never had virtuosity, sonic lustre and visual artistry in his sphere of interests. However, the live recordings of the then 21-year-old Hungarian are of unquestionable interest. Soviet music critic Leonid Gakkel described his
