When Leonard Bernstein died in 1990 at the age of 72, music lovers the world over mourned the loss of one of the 20th century's artistic giants. In addition to his role as conductor, composer, educator and performing artist, Bernstein was one of the early pioneers in bringing the arts to television. As such, he became one of the most internationally recognized musical personalities in the world. He was a man who not only needed music in order to live, but who saw in artistic communication the means to touch the mind, the heart and the spirit all at once. His need to generate this communication dictated his life from the day he discovered music to the day he died. Recorded in March 1990, this performance is Leonard Bernstein's last concert with the Vienna Philharmonic, an orchestra he deeply loved.

The Vienneseborn Carl Czerny, student and confidant of Beethoven and teacher of Liszt, found fame in his native city by writing a series of fashionable pieces, among which numbered fantasies and potpourris as well as a series of important pedagogic studies. His large-scale pianistic works are of great interest and include the First Piano Concerto, in D minor, which expertly balances foreboding, pastoral richness and exuberant brio, a bravura Introduzione e Rondo Brillant and a vivacious salute to Webers Euryanthe. Tuck is dazzlingly articulate and secure in the countless runs and fast passagework Czerny asks of her, wrote MusicWeb International of 8.573417. This is a world-premiere recording.

Unfinished works by great masters possess an appeal that is hard to put into words. It can reach almost mystical dimensions if the creator died before finishing it. Just think of Mozart’s Requiem and Schubert’s «Unfinished Symphony». The same is true for Anton Bruckner’s ninth symphony. He was able to complete three movements. But on 11 October 1896, after working on the Finale in his flat at Belvedere palace in the morning, the 71-year-old composer succumbed to his serious illness. Bruckner reportedly planned to dedicate the symphony to «the Dear Lord», which indicates that he intended his «Ninth» as a farewell piece.

Globalization creates what physicists and chemists call increased entropy. Skel breaks down, flows flow freely, new orders and new disorder occur. It brings challenges and enrichments. This has always been the classical music where musicians have crossed borders for centuries to find income and good living conditions. What kind of enrichment this year causes in our domestic little spirit dam can be studied by looking at the Danish chamber ensembles, which together with our energetic organ orchestras ensure that at least live classical music is played throughout Denmark. From Armenia via Germany, Pianist Marianna Shirinyan came to Denmark 15 years ago and got a job in the Esbjerg Ensemble.

Between 1961 and 1986, Herbert von Karajan made three recordings of the Mozart Requiem for Deutsche Grammophon, with little change in his conception of the piece over the years. This recording, from 1975, is, on balance, the best of them. The approach is Romantic, broad, and sustained, marked by a thoroughly homogenized blend of chorus and orchestra, a remarkable richness of tone, striking power, and an almost marmoreal polish. Karajan viewed the Requiem as idealized church music rather than a confessional statement awash in operatic expressiveness. In this account, the orchestra is paramount, followed in importance by the chorus, then the soloists. Not surprisingly, the singing of the solo quartet sounds somewhat reined-in, especially considering these singers' pedigrees. By contrast, the Vienna Singverein, always Karajan's favorite chorus, sings with a huge dynamic range and great intensity, though with an emotional detachment nonetheless. Perfection, if not passion or poignancy, is the watchword. The Berlin orchestra plays majestically, and the sound is pleasingly vivid.

The most brilliant of Belgian composer César Franck's compositions were written during the final decade of his life; the Symphonic Variations for piano and orchestra, the famous Violin Sonata, the D major String Quartet, and, perhaps most important, the Symphony in D minor are all the products of a single, remarkable five-year period. The Symphony, by no means an immediate success with critics or audiences, has nevertheless become so fused with the popular image of César Franck that it is nearly impossible to think of him without also thinking of this 40-minute orchestral juggernaut.

Thank you Kathleen Battle for making another masterful recording.Mozart's requiem is an excellent work,and this particular version is well recorded too.I just wish mozart wrote more music for the soprano to sing in his requiem.I must say that Verdi's requiem is the greatest ever composed,but thus far of all the requiems i've listened to,mozart's requiem must come in second.Mozart,you go boy!!Kathleen,you go girl!!!! Ps,requiems should be listened to especially on rainy evenings & nights with some introspective thoughts.Perhaps,mozart is now composing an anti-requiem for the afterlife..

Enregistrée en public les 15 et 17 juin 2016 à Munich, cette Troisième de Mahler – la plus longue du compositeur, avec quelque cent minutes de durée – bénéficie grandement de la vision architecturale du vénérable Bernard Haitink, alors âgé de quatre-vingt-six printemps, toujours aussi présent dans l’âme et à la fois discret dans la gestuelle.

Beethoven called Mozart's Requiem "wild and terrible", and that's what we get in Harnoncourt's new recording. Ominous dread hangs from every note of the dark opening measures, the Rex tremendae and Confutatis are driven with terrifying strength, and the supplications of the Lacrimosa, with their weeping stabbings of the orchestra, are freighted with emotional power. The Tuba mirum duet of bass soloist and trombone has a beauty almost never achieved in other readings. Nor does Harnoncourt overstep the stylistic boundaries of this classical-era work; rather, the intensity is heightened for being in the idiom of its time.
