Handel - "Water Music" Suite in D/G Major HWV349/350 (1)
Handel - "Water Music" Suite in D/G Major HWV349/350 (1) GEORGE FRIDERIC HANDEL (1685-1759) Orchestral suite for flute, two oboes, bassoon, two horns, two trumpets, strings and basso continuo in D/G major HWV349/350 "Water Music" [1.] [Ouverture] [2.] Alla Hornpipe *The Water Music is a collection of orchestral movements, often considered as three suites, composed by George Frideric Handel. It premiered in the summer of 1717 (July 17, 1717) when King George I requested a concert on the River Thames. The concert was performed by 50 musicians playing on a barge close to the royal barge from which the King listened with some close friends (including the Duchess of of Bolton, the Duchess of Newcastle, the Countess of Godolphin, Madam Kilmarnock, and the Earl of Orkney). George I was said to have loved it so much that he ordered the exhausted musicians to play the suites three times on the trip. The music in each of the suites has no set order today. When the suite was played for the King, slow, often soft music was played when the King's boat and the orchestra's boat were close together, while louder, brisk passages were played when the boats drifted apart. This performance follows Samuel Arnold's first edition of the complete score in 1788 and the manuscript copies dating from Handel's lifetime. Therefore, the Suite in D and the Suite in G are mixed together. Performed by The King's Consort Conducted by Robert King

The libretto is adapted by an unknown hand from that by Silvio Stampiglia for an earlier opera of the same name by Giovanni Bononcini. Stampiglia's libretto was itself based on one by Nicolò Minato that was set by Francesco Cavalli in 1654. Serse is considered Handel's most Mozartian opera, and one of his finest. Passion is mixed with farce and satire; the folly of human nature is exposed but never ...

Julia Hamari - GF Handel "Giulio Cesare" Act l, Cornelia "Nel tuo
Julia Hamari - GF Handel "Giulio Cesare" Act l, Cornelia "Nel tuo GF Handel "Giulio Cesare" Act l, Cornelia "Nel tuo seno, amico sasso" Julia Hamari - Cornelia Karl Richter - Conductor Recording -April 1969 Paintings - Guido Reni (1575 1642) -Special thanks to andrea585ny for her continuous support. Julia Hamari (1942- ) was born in Budapest, Hungary. She is one of the leading oratorio and Lieder performers of her generation, known for her musicality and rich, full tone. She is particularly admired for her Bach performances and has taken the alto part in almost 30 of Rilling's recordings of the complete Bach cantata. She first studied voice with Fatime Martins and Jeno Sipos, continuing her studies at the Budapest Academy of Music. In 1954, she won the Erkel competition and studied for several years at the Stuttgart Hochschule für Musik. Her concert debut was in 1966 as the alto soloist in Bach's St. Matthew Passion in a Vienna performance. That launched her concert and Lieder career, which has taken place largely in Europe, though she made her United States debut in 1967 with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. She also made her opera debut the same year as Mercedes in Bizet's Carmen and since then has appeared, primarily with the Deutsche Oper am Rhein, in various Baroque and Classical operas. In 1989, she returned to Stuttgart as a professor. Guido Reni (1575 - 1642) was an Italian painter of high-Baroque style. Born in Bologna into a family of musicians, Guido Reni was the son of Daniele Reni and Ginevra de Pozzi. As a child of nine, he ...
Fritz Wunderlich Handel: Xerxes "Ombra mai fu" (Largo)
Fritz Wunderlich Handel: Xerxes "Ombra mai fu" (Largo) Vinyl Fritz Wunderlich Handel: Xerxes "Ombra mai fu" (Largo) Handel: Xerxes "Ombra ma fu" (Largo) Fritz Wunderlich, lyric tenor an operbathosa video Friedrich "Fritz" Karl Otto Wunderlich (September 26, 1930 September 17, 1966) was a German lyric tenor, born in Kusel in the Rhineland. His mother was a violinist and his father was a choir-master. For a short time, the family kept the inn "Emrichs Bräustübl". Fritz's father lost his job due to pressure imposed upon him by local Nazis, in addition to suffering from a severe battlefield injury. He committed suicide when Fritz was five years old. The story regarding Wunderlich's discovery parallels many of his contemporaries (notably Nicolai Gedda and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau). As a young man Wunderlich worked in a bakery. At the insistence of neighbors and passers-by who had witnessed his musical gifts and beautiful voice, Wunderlich decided to begin studies in music. He managed to obtain a scholarship in order to pursue his studies at the Freiburg College of Music where he studied French horn and voice. Wunderlich was soon noted as a brilliant young tenor, especially in Mozartian roles, but he later expanded his reach to the full range of the lyric tenor repertoire. It was the fashion during Wunderlich's career for German theaters to perform operas in the local rather than original language. Therefore, most of his recordings of the standard operatic repertoire are sung in German, including Verdi's Rigoletto and Don Carlos ...

Hallelujah Chorus - GF Handel
Hallelujah Chorus - GF Handel George Frideric Handel's Hallelujah Chorus from his oratorio The Messiah. It is common in performances of this piece for the audience to stand while the Hallelujah is being sung. This is reportedly because at the oratorio's premier in 1742 the present King George II stood up as this section started. Royal protocol dictates that all others must stand and thus a tradition was born (apparently!) His majesty could have stood for various reasons namely he was so moved by the music he wanted to give his appreciation or that he was signifying his obedience to the ultimate 'King of Kings' as the work described. Of course it could have been that his leg had fallen asleep!
