Giuseppe Verdi: Falstaff – Tito Gobbi; Luigi Alva; Rolando Panerai; Elisabeth Schwartzkopf; Anna Moffo; Fedora Barbieri;
Philharmonia Orchestra and Chorus; Herbert von Karajan

Classical | 2 CDs + Bonus CD | EAC Rip | 636 MB (3% recovery) | FLAC+LOG+Cue | Complete scans
Publisher: EMI Classics | Recorded: 19563 | Published: 2011

None of the Falstaff recordings that have come along subsequently – 15 are listed on the current Gramophone Database, not including videos – has come close to what Karajan and his hand-picked cast achieved in Kingsway Hall, London, in June 1956. It will surely prove difficult to surpass its particular combination of virtues. - Gramophone

"Once the head conductor of the Netherlands Philharmonic and the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra, and as the principal guest conductor with the Deutschen Staatsoper (German State Opera) in Berlin since 1995, Hartmut Haenchen (originally spelled Hänchen) is noted for the clear, precise phrasing and sumptuously sonorous tones he evokes from his musicians.

Classical | EAC: FLAC+Cue+Log | 1 Cd, Covers + Booklet | 296 Mb

Bartoli’s dramatic command and vocal presence dominate the stage and reveal her artistry to be entering a rich new stage of development.

Christoph Willibald Gluck - Orfeo ed Euridice (Vienna Version-1762)
Nancy Argenta / Michael Chance / Kammerchor Stuttgart / Tafelmusik / Frieder Bernius
2xCD | EAC+LOG+CUE | FLAC: 362 MB | Artwork: 38 MB | 5% Recovery Info
Label/Cat#: Sony Classical # SX2K 48 040 | Country/Year: Germany 1992
Genre: Classical | Style: Opera, Viennese School

Frieder Bernius began his career primarily as a conductor of choral music, focusing largely on repertory from the Baroque and early Classical periods. Gradually he took a greater interest in orchestral music while still maintaining a preference for choral works. He has favored authentic performance practices and has become one of the leaders in the historically informed performance (HIP) movement. (...) Bernius began recording with Sony Classical in 1989, and among his most successful early recordings for that label was that of Gluck's opera Orfeo ed Euridice (1992), with Nancy Argenta and Michael Chance. Along with his successes in the recording studio in the 1990s and first decade of the new century, Bernius continued to lead many highly acclaimed concerts at home and abroad with his three Stuttgart ensembles.

Elina Garanca - Meditation (2014)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 01:11:42 | 168 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Deutsche Grammophon

"Meditation" is an album for contemplative moments in our lives, for slowing down our everyday life and a return to what is really important in life to us. It conveys all emotions, which itself takes religion remote people, when they hear sacred music - whether in the church, in the concert hall or on the home stereo system: emotion, grandeur and simply the power of the pathetic. Not for nothing have dedicated their most beautiful melodies and maximum expressivity, both the great composers in music history as well as many of their lesser known colleagues of sacred music.

Donizetti - Don Pasquale (James Levine) (2011) [Full Blu-ray]
BluRay | BDMV | MPEG-4 AVC Video / 31000 kbps / 1080i / 29,970 fps | 142 min | 40,5 GB
Audio1: Italian / LPCM Audio / 2.0 / 48 kHz / 2304 kbps / 24-bit
Audio2: Italian / DTS-HD MA 5.1 / 48 kHz / 4093 kbps / 24-bit (DTS Core: 5.1 / 48 kHz / 1509 kbps / 24-bit)
Classical | Deutsche Grammophon | Sub: Italiano, English, Deutsch, Francais, Espanol

A red hot ticket at the Metropolitan Opera in 2010/2011 was Donizetti's comic gem, Don Pasquale, with Anna Netrebko reviving Norina, the part that made her a star in New York. Opera summed up the simple truth: ". . . everyone adored her". John Del Carlo's impressive singing and acting chops as the Don are given every boost by Otto Schenk's hilarious staging and James Levine's witty conducting. Leading this opera for the first time at the Met, the renowned maestro demonstrates that his gifts suit Donizetti as perfectly as Wagner. Mariusz Kwiecien and Matthew Polenzani scintillate as Malatesta and Ernesto. When Norina slaps Pasquale, the old man sees how deluded he has been to believe that the young beauty loves him. The San Francisco Chronicle paid homage to this turning point thus: "Netrebko captures the moment that gives the opera a heart it otherwise would lack" Filmed in November 2010, the DVD features backstage intermission interviews caught during the hubbub of performance.

John Cage - Indeterminacy & Solo For Piano [Fontana Mix] (Deutsche Übersetzung)
Joachim Król, Rezitation / Susanne Kessel, Klavier / Martin Erdmann, Übersetzung

Label/Cat#: Oehms # OC 855 | Country/Year: Germany 2012
Genre: Classical | Style: Contemporary, Recital

"...Joachim Król’s reading is suitably undemonstrative, but the novel aspect of his role is that the text has been translated into German. As one might expect, this alters the experience in a fundamental—but not necessarily frustrating—way. Yes, listeners who don’t speak German will lose the sense of the stories, but, in an ironic Cagean twist, this in turn may allow them to focus greater attention upon the music, and perhaps notice the musicality, rather than just the meaning, of the language..." ~Fanfare
