Purcell: The Fairy Queen

4.4 out of 5 stars with 34 reviews
a great performance Purcell worked immensely hard on his score for The Fairy Queen, but the original was lost. The version on which this performance is based arrived at London's Royal Academy of Music by devious routes a century and a half later. But in Roger Norrington's hands, it emerges in its pristine beauty: you could not wish for a better introduction to Purcell's greatest stage work. Only a ''semi-opera,'' maybe, but one studded with exquisite songs and majestic choruses. The anonymous li

An uncut Porgy & Bess may well be too long in the theater. On CD, though, you can play one act at a time, letting Gershwin's wide-eyed, inexhaustibly inventive score run its course at leisure in the comforts of your rumpus room. Some listeners might find Sir Simon Rattle's tempos on the draggy side, but he's got Gershwin's syncopated idiom down cold. Similarly, the singers fuse Gershwin's prodigious musical demands with effortless, characterful diction more succesfully than in other recordings,

Offenbach: Operas & Operettas (30CD)

He was born in Cologne, but it was in Paris that Jacques Offenbach achieved fame. A special feature of this 30CD collection are star-studded recordings in both French and German of his most celebrated operettas - works that overflow with joie de vivre and satirical wit - and of Les Contes d'Hoffmann, an opera that daringly fuses fantasy, comedy and tragedy. It also includes irresistibly stylish performances of such tempting rarities as Les Brigands, Pomme d'Api, Monsieur Choufleuri and Mesdames

4.2 out of 5 stars with 43 reviews
This 1995 recording doesn't have an especially promising pedigree but confounds low expectations. Though Dame Kiri Te Kanawa often seems interpretively non-committal, the more mature version of her often thinks more about what she's singing now that the notes aren't so free. Thus, this is a dramatically credible Mimi while also having much of Te Kanawa's customary vocal luster. At the other end of the spectrum, Richard Leech is known for yelling but here is in gratifyingly restrained form. Kent

Phalanxes of woodwinds, organs, and voices pulse through Philip Glass's most famous opera like nothing so much as a migratory flock engaged in acrobatics overhead. There is no center to the kinetic activity; the down beat might shift, in split-second hindsight, to the up beat, and the synthesizer might suddenly upstage the libretto of nonsense syllables. The exuberant cacophony of overlapping scripts makes the term ''counterpoint'' seem inadequate, antiquated. Such was Glass's hope, of course, w

It, regrettably, comes as a surprise to many, including highly informed and well-trained musicians that among the most important of the compositions of William Grant Still are his several operas. (NOTE: The Eileen Southern Biographical Dictionary of African American and African Musicians of 1982 lists six operas, but in fact there are nine). In addition to Highway One on this recording, there are also the operas: Blue Street, Troubled Island, A Bayou Legend, A Southern Interlude, Costaso, Mota,

4.7 out of 5 stars with 43 reviews
Given the renaissance in recent years of an interest in Jules Massenet--consider, for example, the 1999 release of two Werthers back to back--the time definitely has become ripe for a new account of his late opera, Thaïs. This is the first alternative to appear on CD since the problematic version with Beverly Sills from the 1970s. While far from flawless (curiously, it was recorded in two stretches, with a pause of 15 months between them), it makes a mostly convincing case for the stirring beau

4.4 out of 5 stars with 50 reviews
CD For all its exotically tinged, trademark Orientalism, so fashionable in late-19th-century France, Delibe's opera Lakmé is at heart a simple story of tragically misplaced love. This marvelous and sensitively wrought interpretation renders the intensity of that love story with a surprising emotional credibility. Conductor Michel Plasson allows the music's arching melodies to breathe and unfold leisurely, like a lovingly cultivated floral display; he even discovers hidden nuances within the for

Insert is included. Both CD's play well. Is it possible to have a great Turandot recording without a great Turandot? This recording almost convinces you that's the case. Whatever one makes of this fairy tale about a Chinese princess who beheads failed suitors, the score is among Puccini's most sophisticated and forward looking, and never has that been more apparent in Herbert von Karajan's interpretation. The opera unfolds in a magical blanket of orchestral sound (sumptuously rendered by Deutsch
