  • The Club Album

    Anne Sophie Mutter

    Year: 2016

    Runtime: 1 hr 9 min

    In May 2015 Anne-Sophie Mutter put her noble, impressively named “Lord Dunn-Raven” Stradivarius through more than its usual paces. For a change, rather than standing on stage in one of the world’s renowned well-tempered grand concert halls, she spent two evenings playing in a tiny graffiti-scrawled nightclub in the Friedrichshain district of Berlin. The name of the club was Neue Heimat, or “new home”, and on two evenings in early summer it was jam-packed with hip young people.

The soloists also flourished in these remarkable surroundings" (Los Angeles Times).

  • Lohengrin

    Richard Wagner

    Year: 2017

    Runtime: 3 hr 35 min

    Lohengrin is a Romantic opera in three acts composed and written by Richard Wagner, first performed in 1850. The opera has inspired other works of art. King Ludwig II of Bavaria named his fairy-tale castle "New Swan Castle", or "Neuschwanstein", after the Swan Knight. It was King Ludwig's patronage that later gave Wagner the means and opportunity to compose, build a theatre for, and stage his epic cycle The Ring of the Nibelung.
    The most popular and recognizable part of the opera is the Bridal Chorus, better known as "Here Comes the Bride", often played as a processional at weddings in the West.

  • Elina Garanca, Matthew Polenzani, Mariusz Kwiec - Donizetti La Favorite

    Various Artists

    Year: 2016

    Runtime: 2 hr 37 min

    In the autumn of 2016 the Bavarian State Opera staged Donizetti’s La Favorite in the original French version, with Elīna Garanča making her debut in the title role in a staged production of this grand opéra. Director Amélie Niermeyer’s dense and minutely choreographed production had the intimacy of a chamber opera, the tiniest gestures shedding light on the action and allowing Niermeyer to bring out the opera’s feminist potential. Alongside the Fernand of Matthew Polenzani and the Alphonse of Mariusz Kwiecień, Elīna Garanča painted the portrait of a woman who, able to see through others’ motives, is overcome by disillusionment but who by controlling her two lovers succeeds in remaining their superior.

    Wagner

    Wagner's supporters say that he took music to new heights of expression here; his detractors say it's the death-knell for melody and structure. It's four hours of aching yearning that does not rest until the last few minutes of the opera.

  • Un Ballo in Maschera Act II

    Giuseppe Verdi

    Year: 1989

    Runtime: 1 hr 25 min

    The outstanding production of Verdi’s Masked Ball at the Salzburg Festivals 1989 and 1990 was Herbert von Karajan’s legacy to the Festival. Supported by a cast of superlative actor-singers in opulent scenery, Sir George Solti agreed to conduct the opera at short notice after Karajan’s unexpected death in 1989. The production had been expected to be a highlight in Karajan’s series of Verdi operas at Salzburg. Karajan’s celebrated ability to unite a cultivated sound with dramatic effects was known to create extraordinary and highly acclaimed opera events. For Un ballo in maschera Karajan planned something unusual: He would not set the opera in colonial Massachusetts, as the censors had forced Verdi to do when he was composing the work, but in Stockholm in the 1790s at the court of King Gustav III of Sweden, as Verdi had originally conceived his work. Together with the film director John Schlesinger and his stage team, Karajan developed a concept that promised theatrical splendour equal to the musical excellence that the conductor and the handpicked cast of singers would surely provide in collaboration with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. But this was not to be: stage rehearsals had already begun for the opening performance of the 1989 festival when Karajan died on 16 July. Therefore it was extraordinarily lucky that a conductor of Sir Georg Solti’s standing, was prepared to undertake the task just a week before the premiere, and with the whole world watching. He and the staging by Hollywood film director John Schlesinger was acclaimed by audience and press alike.

  • Diva Of Dance

    Maya Plisseskaya

    Year: 2006

    Runtime: 51 min

    These filmed excerpts at the Bolshoi Theatre between 1945 and 1977 bear witness to the unique and eternal art of the prima ballerina assoluta Maya Plisetskaya: unique because of the height of her jumps, the incredible fluidity of her arms and the longevity of her career (she was born on 1925 and danced until she was seventy). Unique also because, like Maria Callas, another prima diva assoluta, she was able to reconcile the most amazing technique with the most dramatic expression; her dancing is intelligent.

  • Live at Soundstage

    30 Odd Foot Of Grunts

    Year: 2003

    Runtime: 55 min

    Before New Zealander Russell Crowe became an Oscar-winning Hollywood heavyweight, he was a guy in a band writing songs about his parents, his politics and his then-sweetheart. Crowe wrote his first song at age 6, and in the 1980s formed 30 Odd Foot of Grunts, or TOFOG - the name for a sound effect that Crowe heard while working on the set of the 1995 film, Virtuosity. Crowe and his bandmates give a performance that features the bravado-stripped, engaging and garrulous Crowe along with the rocking, carefree, and guitar infused Grunts.

    Crowe's deep baritone sings songs written for his then-sweetheart, "Inside Your Eyes," along with "Swallow My Gift," a tune he wrote in response to critics who over-scrutinize his music. The band features other songs off their album Other Ways of Speaking including "Never Be Alone Again," "What's Her Name?" and "Charlie's Song." Crowe's cover of "Ring of Fire" reveals the rough-edge rock that the band builds from while also hinting at their blues, folk and pop influences.

    The highlight of the evening is a duet with country-pop icon Kris Kristofferson. TOFOG and Crowe cover the hits "Me and Bobby McGee," originally sung by Janis Joplin, and Kris' "Sunday Morning Coming Down," recorded by Johnny Cash. On his own, Kristofferson performs hits that highlight his philosophical lyricism and poignant arrangements including "The Circle," "A Moment of Forever" and "Help Me Make It Through The Night."
