What work could be better suited to the occasion than Mahler's 'Resurrection' Symphony with it's 'evocation of every aspect of life' and 'it's profound sense of hope', as the Philharmonic's Music Director Alan Gilbert put it? This concert became an unforgettable event, a 'consistently impressive' performance with 'gripping playing', 'magnificent' soloists and an 'excellent' chorus (New York Times). 4260234830217 ACCT20241DVD 16102149 .00 27.99 .23 ACCENTUS DIGITAL VIDEO DISC CLASSICAL ORCHESTRAL & SYMPHONIC 11/08/2011 http://media.aent-m.com/graphics/items/sdimages/b/500/6/4/2/8/1908246.jpg 672 RIMSKY-KORSAKOV / BOSH / CHISJAKOV MAY NIGHT Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908) composed his comic opera May Night in 1878-9, at a time when he was fascinated in the stories for the supernatural and the fantastic. It was also at this time that he had been appointed to a teaching role at the St Petersburg Conservatory - a role he thought himself ill prepared for. Much to the astonishment of his fellow composers and friends - Borodin, Balakirev, and Mussorgsky he threw himself in to the study of counterpoint, writing canons, fugues - all far removed from the spirit of Russian Nationalism in music he and his friends had championed. To show that he hadn't deviated from the path of music inspired by Russian folklore and culture, May Night, his second opera is perhaps his most 'Russian'. Based on a story by Nikolai Gogol, May Night, or the Drowned Maiden, Rimsky uses Gogol's story virtually unaltered, writing his own recitatives and some of the texts to arias. This adaption of ordinary speech or dialogue from the written story gave the work a colloquial folk like feel. Many of the tunes in the opera are from a collection published in 1872 by Alexander Rubets of Ukrainian folk songs. Rimsky's orchestration is superb, glittering and highly illustrative of the supernatural realm of the 'rusalki' and in places foreshadows the music Wagner wrote in act 2 of Parsifal for the depiction of Klingsor's Garden. A footnote to the premiere at the Mariinsky Theatre in 1880 the role of Levko's tyrannical father was sung by Fyodor Stravinsky, who, two tears later would become the father of Igor Stravinsky. 842977040364 BRLT94036.2 15754998 .00 17.99 .26 BRILLIANT CLASSICS COMPACT DISCS CLASSICAL OPERA / OPERETTA / ORATORIO 05/01/2010 http://media.aent-m.com/graphics/items/sdimages/b/500/6/7/0/8/1638076.jpg 4 GODARD / TRIO PARNASSUS COMPLETE PIANO TRIOS 760623161525 MDG3031615.2 15017192 .00 23.99 .21 MD&G RECORDS COMPACT DISCS CLASSICAL CHAMBER MUSIC & RECITALS 05/04/2010 http://media.aent-m.com/graphics/items/sdimages/a/500/2/9/0/8/1638092.jpg 2 SCHUMANN / ZACHARIAS / LEIPZIGER STRING QUARTET PIANO QUINTET OP 44: STRING QUARTETS OP 41 760623161020 MDG3071610.2 15017147 .00 45.99 .44 MD&G RECORDS COMPACT DISCS CLASSICAL CHAMBER MUSIC & RECITALS 05/04/2010 http://media.aent-m.com/graphics/items/sdimages/a/500/3/9/0/8/1638093.jpg 13 DE SILVA / MUSICA CONTEXTA / ENGLISH CORNETT CANDLEMASS IN RENAISSANCE ROME 095115077924 CHN779.2 15757661 .00 20.99 .25 CHANDOS COMPACT DISCS CLASSICAL CLASSICAL VOCALS 05/31/2011 http://media.aent-m.com/graphics/items/sdimages/a/500/3/1/8/4/1844813.jpg 3 BEKEN / DENHARD MEETING PLACE: MEDIEVAL & RENAISSANCE MUSIC LUTE 053479213327 SONL92133.2 15758545 .00 18.99 .22 SONO LUMINUS COMPACT DISCS CLASSICAL CHAMBER MUSIC & RECITALS 05/31/2011 http://media.aent-m.com/graphics/items/sdimages/b/500/5/1/8/4/1844815.jpg 5 NISHIMOTO-NEUBERT,MIKU / BACH MIKU NISHIMOTO-NEUBERT PLAYS JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH 4260123641542 SLMS154.2 15758514 .00 20.99 .16 SOLO MUSICA COMPACT DISCS CLASSICAL CHAMBER MUSIC & RECITALS 05/31/2011 http://media.aent-m.com/graphics/items/sdimages/b/500/6/1/8/4/1844816.jpg 8 BRITTEN / CONNOLLY / RYSANOV / BBCSO / GARDNER PHAEDRA / CHARM OF LULLABIES / LACHRYMAE 095115167120 CHN10671.2 15757630 .00 22.99 .24 CHANDOS COMPACT DISCS CLASSICAL ORCHESTRAL & SYMPHONIC 05/31/2011 http://media.aent-m.com/graphics/items/sdimages/c/500/9/1/8/4/1844819.jpg 25 REIMANN / NIELSEN / FOMO MEDEA 4260034869554 OEHM955.2 15758385 .00 31.99 .54 OEHMS COMPACT DISCS CLASSICAL OPERA / OPERETTA / ORATORIO 05/31/2011 http://media.aent-m.com/graphics/items/sdimages/b/500/4/2/8/4/1844824.jpg 10 FISHER,PHILIP EDWARD PIANO WORKS BY THE MIGHTY HANDFUL 095115167625 CHN10676.2 15757647 .00 22.99 .23 CHANDOS COMPACT DISCS CLASSICAL CHAMBER MUSIC & RECITALS 05/31/2011 http://media.aent-m.com/graphics/items/sdimages/c/500/7/2/8/4/1844827.jpg 3 NIELSEN / TAFFANEL / BARBER / QUINTET CHANTILY QUINTET CHANTILY 881488806359 PROL8063.2 15758484 .00 13.99 .23 PROFIL - G HAENSSLER COMPACT DISCS CLASSICAL CHAMBER MUSIC & RECITALS 05/31/2011 http://media.aent-m.com/graphics/items/sdimages/c/500/8/2/8/4/1844828.jpg 5 ESCHENBACH / NSO / MITCHELL / DREYFUSS / WILD REMEMBERING JFK - 50TH ANNIVERSARY CONCERT To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the inauguration of President John F.
