Collection: Opera Collection

Now that Reinhard Goebel, pioneer in the world of historically informed early music performance, has officially declared that his work with Musica Antiqua Köln is coming to an end, we now encounter him in a new role: as conduc-tor of a modern symphony orchestra. But Goebel’s move away from original instruments does not mean that he will be restricting himself to the standard repertoire! In his first opera production, Goebel presents a seldom heard work by late 18th century composer Michael Haydn, “Andromeda and Perseus”, composed in 1787 and premiered in Salzburg. This release is the first CD of the historic German setting of the libretto as found in Haydn’s original score. The unimaginably virtuosic arias and recitatives are linked by modern texts that compellingly lead us through the drama.

Verdi’s timeless masterpiece brought up to date in a hilarious new English version, shot on and around a golf course.

At a golf club near Windsor, “Big John” Falstaff props up the bar at the nineteenth hole, (the member’s bar) which is where he is invariably to be found. He doesn’t actually play golf, because no-one wants to play with him - and anyway he’s probably too plump to make it beyond the first green. However he takes comfort in the fact that his bar bill is about to be settled, and all he has to do to achieve this extraordinary feat is to seduce the lovely Alice Ford, a task that he considers himself eminently qualified to undertake. As the big man blunders from one catastrophe to another and the plot races towards its uproarious conclusion, Tony Britten’s trademark wit and accessibility perfectly compliments Verdi’s glorious comedy.

Falstaff is an operatic commedia lirica in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi, adapted by Arrigo Boito from Shakespeare's plays The Merry Wives of Windsor and scenes from Henry IV.

The world premiere recording of the opera Alfred, by central Czech musical figure and composer of the New World Symphony, Antonín Dvořák, is a monumental event of great scholarly interest for experts and the general public alike.

This Wagnerian-style opera originated in 1870, and was performed and recorded for the first time as written (i.e. in the German language) in Prague's premiere acoustical venue: the Dvořák Hall at the Rudolfínum. The critical edition of the score and materials were prepared by a team of leading Dvořák scholars.

The recording features premiere Wagnerian singers, as well as the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra, Czech Philharmonic Choir, and conductor Heiko Mathias Förster.

Significant concert activity planned to mark Sir Peter Maxwell Davies 75th birthday in 2009, including concert performances of Taverner in November by BBC SSO (UK).
Sir Peter Maxwell Davies was appointed Master of the Queen’s Music in 2004.
Maxwell Davies and Harrison Birtwistle studied together at the Royal Northern College of Music where they founded the contemporary music touring ensemble the Pierrot Players (later renamed The Fires of London).
Maxwell Davies Lives in Sanday in the Orkney Islands which are located off the northern tip of Scotland where the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean meet. Orkney is an archipelago of 70 or so islands; just 21 of them are inhabited.
This is Peter Maxwell Davies’ first release on the NMC label. To mark Sir Peter Maxwell Davies’s 75th birthday NMC issue the long-awaited release of his seminal opera, Taverner.
This release is of the landmark 1997 BBC recording featuring an astonishing line up of the cream of British contemporary music interpreters, alongside specialist period instrument ensembles Fretwork and His Majestys Sagbutts & Cornetts, conducted by Oliver Knussen. Although what is now known about the 16th-century English composer John Taverner differs considerably from the plot of this opera, the piece is both a fascinating study of an artist as a man for all seasons and an extraordinary indictment of the horrors inflicted on humanity by religion, or religious zealotry.
The Taverner of the opera abandons music to become a persecutor of the Catholic faith and thus betrays all that is good in himself. In Act 1 we see him being tried for heresy by the White Abbot and pardoned by the Cardinal (Wolsey) because of his music. In Act 2, which is a parody of the first, Taverner is trying the White Abbot, who is burned at the stake. That is the bare outline. A sub-plot is Henry VIII’s wish for a break with Rome in order to divorce Catherine of Aragon and the machinations of a Jester, otherwise Death, who controls Taverner’s fate.
