La jacquerie is a four-act opera commenced by Édouard Lalo in 1889 to a libretto by Édouard Blau and Simone Arnaud. The opera was unfinished when Lalo died in 1892, and it was completed by Arthur Coquard. The first performance was at the Opéra de Monte-Carlo on March 9, 1895.
New love, position, power, revenge, disguise, mistaken identity, complications and passionate devotion – the full spectrum of baroque opera seria is here in this new recording of Pergolesi’s ‘Adriano In Siria’. Franco Fagioli leads the cast, alongside Romina Basso, Yuriy Mynenko, Dilyara Idrisova, Juan Sancho and Cigdem Soyarslan, accompanied by the exuberant Polish orchestra Capella Cracoviensis under the baton of Jan Tomasz Adamus. Famed for his Stabat Mater, Pergolesi died aged just 26 but had already completed four opera seria; ‘Adriano in Siria’ is the third of these and has a libretto by Metastasio.
Hall of Sermon is happy to announce the all new album from Tilo Wolff [LACRIMOSA]’s Industrial / electro sideproject, the first new sign of life of SNAKESKIN exactly 10 years after the release of the previous album “Canta’tronic.” “Tunes for my Santiméa” features vocals by Tilo Wolff with female singers Kerstin Doelle (who was already present on “Canta’tronic”) and the new entry Carina Boehmer! 10 new songs of uncompromising electro, melting with classical arrangements, a flavour of pop and a tremendous amount of anger and emotions! Although this release is closer to the style of LACRIMOSA, than the two previous albums, also this third album is very ‘industrial’ influenced and faithful to the project’s unique style. With three singers the range of the project’s sound is wider than ever before! Tilo is currently putting the final touches on a high quality video clip, produced in Los Angeles with crewmembers of Steven Soderbergh (“Ocean’s Eleven,” “Magic Mike”…).
Under one cover collection compilers gathered the greatest composers of all the classics I have never seen such a comprehensive, coherent, astonishing album of classical music like this. I think that the most passionate plays the greatest composers in the history enrich your rainy night for more than 3.5 hours without faltering on any note.
Debut album from Nashville-based Progressive Rock band delivers powerful but approachable Art Rock. Musically sublime from epic to elegant, lyrically poetic. This is that "why don't they make music like this anymore" album…
