La Donna è Mobile - Giuseppe Verdi La donna è mobile Qual piuma al vento Muta d'accento E di pensiero Sempre un'amabile Leggiadro viso In pianto o in riso È menzognero La donna è mobil Qual piuma al vento Muta d'accento E di pensier E di pensier E di pensier è sempre misero Chi a lei s'affida Chi le confida Mal cauto il core Pur mai non sentesi Felice appieno Chi su quel seno Non liba amore La donna è mobil Qual piuma al vento Muta d'accento E di pensier E di pensier E di pensier...

Wagner - Die Walküre: "The Ride of the Valkyries" (Boulez) start of Act III, as the Valkyries gather the soldiers' bodies, and clip ends a bit after Brünnhilde's entrance. Wagner used the Valkyries of the Norse Sagas, rather than the depiction of them in the Nibelungenlied.

[Arthaus 100713] TCHAIKOVSKY: Swan Lake (Bolshoi Ballet, 1989)
[Arthaus 100713] TCHAIKOVSKY: Swan Lake (Bolshoi Ballet, 1989) From the Bolshoi Theatre 1989. Swan Lake is the very essence of classical ballet and has a rather venerable history of its own. First choreographed in 1877 by the great Marius Petipa for the Bolshoi, this original choreography has since been tweaked by almost every choreographer to get hold of it down through the years. Yuri Grigorovich keeps the general outline of the story of a prince who falls in love with the mythic half-woman, half-swan Odette (only to betray her when she appears to him in disguise as Odile). Grigorovich however added a controversial twist with his inclusion of a psychological dimension to the proceedings: the evil sorcerer cast as the dark twin of the hero-prince. The pearl of this production is undoubtedly Alla Mikhalchenko as Odette-Odile. Her impressive technique and brilliant acting gives the character a new expressive dimension.

Americas Got Talent - Jackie Evancho 10 Opera Singer
Americas Got Talent - Jackie Evancho 10 Opera Singer The YouTube.com community picked their favorite Jackie Evancho. She is a young opera singer from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and can be compared to Susan Boyle. Now she may look like an average kid, but this child has a set of pipes. The video entry gave an amazing performance that one person commented sounded like an Angel. Looking to be a very young contestant, there is no doubt she might steal the show. Bio Jackie Evancho - 10yrs old - Singer Jackie has a style that is all her own. At ten years old, she possesses an ability that many older artists lack. Her talent and presence captivate all that hear her. Jackie performs with such style and grace that we forget that we are watching/listening to a child. She has been called by a many, a singing prodigy! By Jerry Shriver, USA TODAY When a 10-year-old singer belted out a Puccini aria with the polished voice of someone thrice her age on Tuesday night's episode of America's Got Talent, the "next Susan Boyle!" superlatives flowed across the mediascape. But so did the question: Is Jackie Evancho for real? The precocious soprano, a Pittsburgh-area fourth-grader who auditioned for the NBC show with a YouTube video, wowed the panel with a live performance of O Mio Babbino Caro. But a video clip appears to show that her lips are ever-so-slightly out of sync with the audio. Fremantle, the company that produces AGT and Fox's American Idol, makes contestants available only to local media. But "there was no lip-syncing," says producer Jason Raff. LIFELINE LIVE:More on Jackie, plus see video During rehearsals, "the whole crew was saying it looked like she's lip-syncing," he says. "And on the close-ups, her mouth is moving a different way than the sound coming out. It is weird, but it's just how she sings." The voters embraced her happily: On Wednesday's results show, Evancho advanced to the semifinals. Further testimony to her true talent comes from her track record: Her self-released EP, Prelude to a Dream, has sold around the world, and she has performed with David Foster, sung the national anthem at the Pittsburgh Pirates home opener and appeared on PBS. "She is just truly blessed with a voice that's phenomenal," says classical-crossover composer/conductor Tim Janis, who is including Evancho in his American Christmas Carol show (Dec. 2) at Carnegie Hall. A film producer had alerted Janis to Evancho two years ago, and he put her in one of his Celebrate America specials for the Pittsburgh public television station WQED. "Jackie just stood out and shined," he says. Her voice "totally captivated me and sent me to a place that was uplifting and inspiring." Even if listeners don't know that it's a child singing, "the voice stands on its own. It's a big sound that fills the room." The reaction recalls the Cinderella story of Boyle, who became an Internet sensation after her Britain's Got Talent appearance and went on to record an album that has sold 9 million copies worldwide. Evancho trains with at least two vocal coaches, which is essential at her age "to make sure you don't abuse the gift," Janis says. "A young vocalist is in the process of developing those muscles, and you don't overdo it." He won't speculate whether Evancho, who sings both pop and classical, will choose one specialty. "She has a rare gift to speak to many hearts. In my mind, the classical setting is a really nice match for her voice. But someone who doesn't follow that genre can still appreciate the beauty. "Whatever she picks, she will do well." http://www.JackieEvancho.co http://www.JacquelineEvancho.co http://www.JacquelineMarieEvancho.com
Pavel Steidl interprets Luigi Legnani - Caprice no. 36 - Virtuoso "
Pavel Steidl interprets Luigi Legnani - Caprice no. 36 - Virtuoso " Pavel Steidl interprets Luigi Legnani's Caprice 36 (Moderato), Op. 20 Played on a copy of a "19th century guitar by Georg Staufer". Recorded May 1997. This video was uploaded to show that there are guitarists who are just as relaxed and expressive when playing fast, as when playing a slower work. Also: speed alone - is never Steidl's focus. Steidl always shapes the music to a charming effect. He's one of the few players who give 19th century guitar music the charm and friendly playfulness, which so many other guitarists either do not understand (nothing wrong with that: there are so many different musical styles), or do not have as their focus (their perverted focus usually being only speed). Bravo Mr. Steidl ! www.naxos.com

Mozart-Symphony No. 41 "Jupiter"/Leibowitz/Pt. 1 (of 3)
Mozart-Symphony No. 41 "Jupiter"/Leibowitz/Pt. 1 (of 3) Rare. Rene Leibowitz conducts The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (1962) Rene Leibowitz (1913-1972) was born in Warsaw but moved to Paris in his teens and there began a long, illustrious conducting career. Particularly interested in contemporary music, he studied with Webern and Schoenberg and wrote a detailed analysis of twelve-tone music. A keen ear for instrumental coloration (Ravel was his orchestration teacher) was evident in his kaleidoscopic transcriptions of such works as Bach's Passacaglia and Fugue in C (for double orchestra!). But he is best known for his often highly personal renditions of many staples of the Classical and Romantic repertoire. Here's Part 2 www.youtube.com
