    Gustav Mahler

    Year: 2010

    Bernard Haitink is one of the most sought-after Mahler conductors of our day.

Particularly Haitink’s interpretations of Mahler and Bruckner made a worldwide impression. The Concertgebouw Orchestra was founded in 1888. On the occasion of its 100th anniversary in 1988, the orchestra officially received the appellation ‘Royal’.

  • St. Matthew's Passion

    Johann Sebastian Bach

    Year: 1985

    Runtime: 1 hr 33 min

    Johann Sebastian Bach composed the St. John Passion in Cöthen during the winter of 1722/23. The text is drawn from chapters 18 and 19 of the Gospel according to St. John, and includes some excerpts from St. Mathew and additional text from a Passion poem by the Hamburg town councillor Barthold Heinrich Brockes. The composer led the first performance at the Good Friday services on 7 April 1724 at St. Nicholas Church in Leipzig, where he had since become municipal music director and cantor of the Thomasschule. This Passion is heard less often today than the St. Matthew Passion, perhaps because the St. John Passion is in some ways more raw and evokes the anguish of the Passion more painfully than the St. Matthew work. A musician’s musician, an occasional firebrand and a constant paradox – Nikolaus Harnoncourt (born in 1929) is one of the most profound and intriguing conductors of our time. Considered one of the world’s leading specialists of Baroque music, he has long since turned his attention to Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, and even to Jacques Offenbach and Johann Strauss. He spent many years as a cellist with the Wiener Symphoniker before founding the "Concentus Musicus Wien" with his wife Alice in 1953. It soon became one of the world’s most respected ensembles specializing in the performance of early music on original instruments. In the 1970s, Harnoncourt joined forces with Jean-Pierre Ponnelle to stage a series of Monteverdi operas at the Zurich Opera House. This universally acclaimed cycle contributed to a renaissance of Monteverdi’s music and set standards for early Baroque performance practice. He later began to turn his attention more and more to the music of Mozart, whom he considers "the most romantic of all composers". Harnoncourt did not make his official debut at the Salzburg Festival until 1992. He has been conducting there regularly since then and is a sought-after guest conductor of such reputable ensembles as the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonics, the Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe.

  • Kremerata

    various artists

    Year: 2015

    Runtime: 1 hr 27 min

    Gidon Kremer is, and has always been, one of the most headstrong and original artists in the music business and he was once hailed by Herbert von Karajan as the world’s best violinist. He celebrated his 60th birthday in 2007 and he has always kept himself young musically with his spontaneity and a readiness to take risks. In his artistic development over the past 25 years, Kremer often found himself functioning as a crossover figure as he discovered fresh routes through well-trodden paths in music. It was in this spirit, that his fine young ensemble Kremerata Baltica, which he founded by bringing together young musicians from the Baltic states, presents music by Mahler, Shostakovish, Sibelius, Sallinen, Piazzola, Rota and a cycle called “Sempre Primavera” compiled by himself.

  • Beethoven: Piano Concerto No.1

    Various Artists

    Year: 2011

    Runtime: 41 min

    In time for his 65th birthday in 2007, Daniel Barenboim has completed a cycle of Beethoven's
    piano concertos. Recorded live at the prestigious Klavier-Festival Ruhr in May 2007, this
    recording reflects both a very individual and special reading of Beethoven’s music and the
    artist’s life-long dedication to the composer. Daniel Barenboim is one of the most prolific and
    high-profile artists performing on international stages today and Beethoven’s masterpieces
    have been a key part of his repertoire throughout his career, both as conductor and as pianist.
    Beethoven himself was a keyboard virtuoso of almost awesome abilities who created a
    sensation wherever he played. It is no wonder, therefore, that the piano was central to
    Beethoven’s overall output. Daniel Barenboim, artistic personality and former wunderkind,
    long an essential part of the international musical scene both on the conductor’s podium and
    at the piano, is the perfect match for this demanding music. Conducting and playing at the
    same time, Barenboim chose his orchestra of almost two decades, the Staatskapelle Berlin,
    which he has praised warmly for its exceptional, dark and warm sound. With a tradition
    reaching back to 1570, the Staatskapelle Berlin is one of the oldest orchestras in the world.
    Barenboim plays Beethoven brings together two musical masterminds.
