1966 Salzburg Festival "Le Nozze di Figaro" cinque dieci venti tre 1966 Salzburg Festival "Le Nozze di Figaro" -cinque dieci venti trenta - Retitativo - Se vuol ballare Conductor - Karl Böhm Figaro - Walter Berry Susanna - Reri Grist Performance on 11/08/1968 -Salzburg Festival (part 2)- Post World War II Festivals The post-war festival slowly regained its prominence as the premier summer opera festival, especially in works by Mozart, with conductor Herbert von Karajan becoming artistic director in 1956. In 1960 the Great Festival Hall (Großes Festspielhaus) opera house opened its doors. As this summer festival gained fame and stature as the premier venue for opera, drama, and classical concert presentation, its musical repertoire concentrated on Mozart and Strauss, but other works, such as Verdi's Falstaff and Beethoven's Fidelio, were also performed. Upon Karajan's death in 1989, the festival was modernized by director Gerard Mortier, succeeded by Peter Ruzicka in 2001. In 2006, Salzburg celebrated the 250th anniversary of Mozart's birth by staging all 22 of his operatic works (including two unfinished operas), to great acclaim. All 22 were filmed and were released to the general public in November 2006. Since 2006 the festival is led by intendant Jürgen Flimm and concert director Markus Hinterhäuser. Alexander Pereira is scheduled to succeed Flimm, future director of the Berlin State Opera, after the 2011 summer festival.

Beethoven Piano Concert No 4 - 1.mov part 1 - Wilhelm Backhaus - Kar GOOD QUALITY WILHELM BACKHAUS & KARL BÖHM Concerto for Piano no 4 in G major, Op. 58 by Ludwig van Beethoven Performer: Wilhelm Backhaus (Piano) Conductor: Karl Böhm Orchestra/Ensemble: Vienna Symphony Orchestra Date of Recording: 3-9/4/1967 Venue: Studio Rosenhügel, Vienna Period: Classical Written: 1806; Vienna, Austria * Backhaus was regarded by many as the greatest interpreter of Beethoven. * Backhaus and Böhm were friends of nearly forty years' standing and collaborated in concertos by both these composers on many occasions. * The present performance was among their last. Two years later, Backhaus died, aged 85, after a career of some seventy years. * Both men were technicians of exceptional brilliance. * Böhm's command of orchestral ensemble, sonority, textural clarity and subtlety of rhythm was legendary. His musicianship was impeccable, his authority unquestioned. * A marvellous testament to great Brahms conducting! Perhaps this DVD will act as a reminder of the power of the medium. These are two fine performances by two great artists - and here we have the opportunity to study their most intimate movements in performance. Piano students will surely glean volumes from Backhaus's sovereign technique; conducting students may find less to admire in Böhm's rather staid manner and gestures, but nevertheless can observe a major podium figure of the past at close quarters. The set-up in the studio is typical for the period, with the conductor rather isolated from his ...
Gustav Mahler - "Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen" (Rückert) -
Gustav Mahler - "Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen" (Rückert) - During the summers of 1901 and 1902, Gustav Mahler set to music five poems by the German Romantic poet Friedrich Rückert. The third of these, "Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen", portrays a world-weary artist who exists in our everyday world, but who actually lives his life in another, more ethereal plane reserved for great artists. Mahler, much maligned as composer during his lifetime, identified strongly with the poem, saying that it expressed his very self. In fact, he felt so strongly about this song that he reused much of the music in the famous Adagietto of his Fifth Symphony, which he composed during the summer of 1902. The orchestral song begins with a mournful melody played by solo English horn. This melody is then restated and extended by the singer during the first stanza, which speaks of the artists isolation in a world that already thinks him dead. The tempo increases slightly for the second stanza, during which the artist reflects that he does not really care what the world thinks. The third stanza is remarkably peaceful as the artist describes the other world in which he resides: I live alone in my heaven, in my love, in my song. The gentle consonant-dissonant alternation of the violins and English horn in the coda seems to portray the artist staring beyond the horizon into his musical paradise. Many consider "Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen", as Mahlers greatest song, one of his most profound and moving works and was of immense personal significance ...
