Strauss: Vier Letzte LiederIn 2015, we are celebrating the centenary of Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, one of the greatest singers of the 20th century. The sublime and moving culmination of Richard Strauss's love affair with the soprano voice, the Four Last Songs are interpreted by Schwarzkopf with insight, wisdom and gentle radiance. In the early years of his career George Szell was mentored by Richard Strauss himself, and he provides Schwarzkopf with an exquisitely sensitive orchestral context for all nine songs in this classic anthology.1.

Nessun Dorma - The Puccini AlbumAfter years of singing Giacomo Puccini's heroes on stage to vast critical and audience acclaim, "the world's greatest tenor"(The Daily Telegraph), Jonas Kaufmann, finally records an album entirely devoted to the world's most-loved opera composer. The new album, Nessun dorma is a selection of Puccini's stupendous tenor arias drawn from his greatest opera's including Tosca, Manon Lescaut, La Bohème, Madame Butterfly and La fanciulla del West. Spanning the breadth of Puccini's output from the early operas Le Villi and Edgar, the album culminates in the mighty aria "Nessun dorma" from his final opera Turandot. Jonas Kaufmann is joined on this album by Maestro Antonio Pappano, the Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and soprano Kristine Opolais. Nessun Dorma - The Puccini Album is also available on 180-gram vinyl and on CD as a Deluxe Edition with a bonus DVD that includes an EPK plus excerpts from upcoming DVD releases Manon Lescaut and La Fanciulla del West.

Schubert: Symphonies Nos. 8 & 3Carlos Kleiber conducts the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra as they play Franz Schubert's 3rd and 8th Symphonies.
The year 1815 saw a veritable flood of music pour from the pen of the eighteen-year-old Franz Schubert: during that single year he produced no fewer than four operas and operettas, two symphonies, two masses, many sacred and secular choral pieces, sonatas and other works for piano, as well as some 145 lieder, among them the Erlkonig. Schubert wrote all this vast amount of music, which seemed to flow from him effortlessly, in his little room during the evenings. The position of assistant teacher exempted him from military service, and his daily nine hours of school duties did not stem his immense creative urge.
On the 24th of May, Schubert began the composition of his Third Symphony in D Major, which he finished on the 19th of July. This work, written with undisturbed facility directly in full score, is unproblematic. At that time, Schubert was untroubled by doubts concerning formal construction, or by a sense of the need to solve problems by exploring unknown territory. The last movement in particular, a Presto vivace in which the instruments toss the spritely theme about between them, also bears witness to the growing individuality of its composer, who was rapidly becoming a mature master of his art.
The secret of the Unfinished symphony has never been completely solved. Schubert wrote the two complete movements in 1822 and began a third movement, but for unknown reasons did not finish it. He evidently considered the two movements a work in their own right, to judge from his dedication of the score to the Steiermarkischer Musikverein. The artistic director of that association kept the score to himself, and it was not untnil 1865 that this symphony received its first performance. The occasion was a triumph, and it became a posthumous act of homage to the composer who had died so young.
Eduard Hanslick praised this symphony enthusiastically, declaring that it belonged among Schubert's most beautiful instrumental works. The Unfinished is more than that - its place is among the supreme achievements in the world of music.1. Symphony No. 8 in B minor, D. 759 Unfinished
