Oramo, Stockholm Philharmonic - Elgar: Symphony No. 1, Cockaigne (2014)
EAC Rip | Flac (Tracks + cue + log) | 1 CD | Full Scans | 308 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Bis | Catalog Number: 1939

It was during the winter of 1900–01 that Elgar began to sketch what he hoped would turn into a symphony – his first. But the sketches were quickly absorbed into several shorter pieces, one of which was the Cockaigne overture. Although composed in the rural area of the Malvern Hills, the work is nevertheless an unashamedly populist portrait of ‘old London town’, complete with references to whistling errand boys and a marching band – the composer himself described the music as ‘cheerful and Londony’.

Joshua, Hulcup, Davies, Christie, Les Arts Florissants - Handel: Belshazzar (2013)
EAC Rip | Flac (Image + cue + log) | 3 CDs | Full Scans | 880 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Les Arts Florissants | Catalog Number: 001

A brand-new label from one of the world's finest early music ensembles makes an auspicious debut with this stunning new recording of Handel's oratorio Belshazzar. Les Arts Florissants, led by the great William Christie, have launched their new label with the goal of expanding the ensemble's connection to the listening public on a scale far beyond the concert hall. Belshazzar was first performed in 1745, and was frequently revised. Christie has chosen what he considers to be the most successful of the various versions of Belshazzar, resulting in the restoration of the piece in all its splendor. The libretto's subject, which focuses on the decline of a once glorious society and the ephemeral nature of Empire, is especially relevant today. This deluxe set also includes a bonus essay by Jean Echenoz entitled In Babylon, printed separately on special paper and included alongside the regular booklet. This specially commissioned work draws the reader deep into the ancient, majestic city, the seat of power of Belshazzar the King.

Suzuki, Bach Collegium Japan - Bach: Secular Cantatas Vol 4 - Academic Cantatas (2014)
EAC Rip | Flac (Image + cue + log) | 1 CD | Full Scans | 351 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Bis | Catalog Number: 2001

The two works on this disc perfectly illustrate a particular type of secular cantata, the so-called ‘dramma per musica’. In such works the libretto is constructed dramatically, and the singers embody various roles, such as gods and other characters from antiquity, and allegorical figures. The parallel with opera is apparent, although the ‘drammi per musica’ do without any scenic element. Bach primarily used the form in works intended for princely tributes or academic festivities: educated audiences could be expected to recognize the characters and literary traditions involved.

Darcey Bussell and Roberto Bolle star in Frederick Ashton’s Sylvia, restored to the splendour of its elegant and opulent three-act form for the 75th anniversary celebrations of The Royal Ballet. Ashton was inspired by the music of Léo Delibes to create such great choreographic sequences as the famous Act 3 pas de deux and the mischievous role of Eros, one of the delightful, darkly comic characterisations for which Ashton became known and loved.

Frans Bruggen put the recorder on the map as a solo instrument, and no one before or since has made such a huge impact, nor had Bruggen's musicality and expressiveness. Once the world's most famous recorder player, today Frans Brüggen is considered among the foremost experts in the performance of eighteenth century music. He studied the recorder with Kees Otten and flute at the Amsterdam Muzieklyceum. In addition, he took courses in musicology at the University of Amsterdam.

Handel - Admeto (Howard Arman) (2009)
BluRay | BDMV | MPEG-4 AVC Video / 1080i / 29,970 fps | 196 min |41,7 GB
Audio1: Italian / LPCM Audio / 2.0 / 48 kHz / 1536 kbps / 16-bit
Audio2: Italian / DTS-HD Master Audio / 7.1 / 48 kHz / 3183 kbps / 16-bit (DTS Core: 5.1 / 48 kHz / 1509 kbps / 16-bit)
Classical | Arthaus Musik | Sub: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian

Axel Köhler, the celebrated counter-tenor who is active in Munich, Halle and Berlin – now also well known for his work as a director - has brought ‚Admeto‘ into the modern era in timeless style by the skilful application of imaginative theatrical digressions. Köhler’s production at the Halle Opernhaus revisits a work that encompasses comedy, tragedy and almost absurd grotesqueness and gives it a convincing metaphor in the form of a modern hospital.

Oramo - Nielsen: Symphonies No 4 & 5 (2014)
EAC Rip | Flac (Image + cue + log) | 1 CD | Full Scans | 289 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Bis | Catalog Number: 2028

In 1962, when Leonard Bernstein chose to record Carl Nielsen’s Fifth Symphony, this provided the composer with a wider international breakthrough some thirty years after his death. The work has since been hailed as one of the greatest symphonies of the twentieth century, but at its first performances during the early 1920’s audiences were less enthusiastic, finding it puzzling and difficult to understand.

Kilanowicz, Dobber - Gorecki: Beatus Vir; Symphony No.2 (2001)
EAC Rip | Flac (Image + cue + log) | 1 CD | Full Scans | 269 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Naxos | Catalog Number: 8555375

You might remember Polish composer Henryk Górecki's best-known work for voice and orchestra, 1976's Third Symphony ("Symphony of Sorrowful Songs"). After all, David Zinman's recording for Nonesuch with soprano Dawn Upshaw raced to the top of the classical and pop charts when it was first released in 1992. It might be tempting to understand Górecki by that singular success; in the case of the Second Symphony and Beatus vir, you wouldn't be too far off base. The Symphony No. 2 "Copernican" was written four years before the Third Symphony; Beatus vir was written in 1979. Both works call for voice and orchestra (as well as mixed choir). By the late 1960s, the composer already had settled into a signature aesthetic that many came to know in the Third Symphony: a lone voice floating over a murmuring pulse, thunderous blows of percussion, massive blocks of orchestral chords, and religiously oriented texts.
