Nina Stemme 1993 - Der Freischütz "Wie nahte mir der Schlumm "Singer of the World" competition 1993. 30 years old Nina Stemme sings Carl Maria von Weber: Der Freischütz AGATHE (Arie) Wie nahte mir der Schlummer, Bevor ich ihn gesehn? Ja, Liebe pflegt mit Kummer Stets Hand in Hand zu gehn! Ob Mond auf seinem Pfad wohl lacht? Welch schöne Nacht! Leise, leise, Fromme Weise! Schwing dich auf zum Stemenkreise. Lied, erschalle! Feiernd walle Mein Gebet zur Himmelshalle! O wie hell die goldnen Sterne, Mit wie reinem Glanz sie glühn! Nur dort in der Berge Ferne Scheint ein Wetter aufzuziehn. Dort am Wald auch schwebt ein Heer Dunkler Wolken dumpf und schwer. Zu dir wende Ich die Hände, Herr ohn' Anfang und ohn' Ende! Vor Gefahren Uns zu wahren Sende deine Engelscharen! Alles pflegt schon längst der Ruh? Trauter Freund, wo weilest du? Ob mein Ohr auch eifrig lauscht, Nur der Tannen Wipfel rauscht; Nur das Birkenlaub im Hain Flüstert durch die hehre Stille; Nur die Nachtigall und Grille Scheint der Nachtluft sich zu freun. Doch wie? Täuscht mich nicht mein Ohr? Dort klingt's wie Schritte! Dort aus der Tannen Mitte Kommt was hervor! Er ist's! Er ist's! Die Flagge der Liebe mag wehn! Dein Mädchen wacht Noch in der Nacht! Er scheint mich noch nicht zu sehn! Gott, täuscht das Licht Des Monds mich nicht, So schmückt ein Blumenstrauss den Hut! Gewiss, er hat den besten Schuss getan! Das kündet Glück für morgen an! O süsse Hoffnung, neu belebter Mut! All meine Pulse schlagen, Und das Herz wallt ungestüm, Süss entzückt entgegen ihm! Konnt'ich das zu ...

Carlo Bergonzi - Che gelida manina (Live)
Carlo Bergonzi - Che gelida manina (Live) Carlo Bergonzi (b. 1924) is an Italian operatic tenor. Although he performed and recorded various bel canto and verismo roles, he is above all associated with the operas of Giuseppe Verdi, including a large number of his lesser-known works which he helped revive. Essentially a lirico-spinto tenor, Bergonzi is greatly admired for his pointed diction, beautiful legato and elegant phrasing. Bergonzi here sings the famous aria 'Che gelida manina' from La Boheme, in a live performance. This is one of my favorite renditions, absolutely spectacular performance by Maestro Bergonzi. Bergonzi was still singing and giving masterclasses as of 2005. When I visited China that year, a friend of mine and I attended Bergonzi's masterclasses in Beijing...Bergonzi's voice is still in good shape and sounds fantastic!

Rachmaninoff -  Vocalise For Violin
Rachmaninoff - Vocalise For Violin Title : Sergei Rachmaninov, Vocalise (Songs (14), Op. 34: no 14) From Wikipedia,Vocalise, Op. 34 No. 14 is a song by Sergei Rachmaninoff, published in 1912 as the last of his Fourteen Songs, Opus 34. Written for voice (soprano or tenor) with piano accompaniment, it contains no words, but is sung using any one vowel (of the singer's choosing). It was dedicated to soprano Antonina Nezhdanova. Although the original publication stipulates that the song may be sung by either soprano or tenor voice, it is usually chosen to be performed by a soprano. As with many classical vocal pieces, it is transcribed in a variety of keys, allowing the performer to choose a vocal range more suitable to their natural voice, so that artists who may not have the higher range of a soprano can nevertheless perform the song. When sung by a tenor, it is sung an octave lower than the same key when sung by a soprano.

Many of his compositions have been used on television and in numerous films, and many became jazz standards. The jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald recorded many of the Gershwins' songs on her 1959 Gershwin Songbook (arranged by Nelson Riddle). Countless singers and musicians have recorded Gershwin songs, including Fred Astaire, Louis Armstrong, Al Jolson, Bobby Darin, Art Tatum, Bing Crosby, Janis Joplin, John Coltrane, Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday, Sam Cooke, Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Madonna, Judy Garland, Julie Andrews, Barbra Streisand, Marni Nixon, Natalie Cole, Patti Austin, Nina Simone, Maureen McGovern, John Fahey, The Residents, Sublime, and Sting. About the composer: George Gershwin (September 26, 1898 July 11, 1937) was an American composer and pianist whose early death brought to a premature halt one of the most remarkable careers in American music. Gershwin's compositions spanned both popular and classical genres, and his most popular melodies are universally familiar. He wrote most of his vocal and theatrical works in collaboration with his elder brother, lyricist Ira Gershwin. George Gershwin composed music for both Broadway and the classical concert hall, as well as popular songs that brought his work to an even wider public. Gershwin's compositions have been used in numerous films and on television, and many became jazz standards recorded in numerous variations. Countless singers and musicians have recorded Gershwin songs. Early life Gershwin was named Jacob Gershowitz at birth in Brooklyn on September 26, 1898. His parents were Russian Jews. His father, Morris (Moishe) Gershowitz, changed his family name to 'Gershvin' sometime after immigrating to the United States from St. Petersburg, Russia in the early 1890s. Gershwin's mother Rosa Bruskin had already immigrated from Russia. She met Gershowitz in New York and they married on July 21, 1895.[1] (George changed the spelling of the family name to 'Gershwin' after he became a professional musician; other members of his family followed suit.) George Gershwin was the second of four children.[2] He first displayed interest in music at the age of ten, when he was intrigued by what he heard at his friend Maxie Rosenzweig's violin recital.[3] The sound and the way his friend played captured him. His parents had bought a piano for lessons for his older brother Ira, but to his parents' surprise and Ira's relief, it was George who played it.[4] Although his younger sister Frances Gershwin was the first in the family to make money from her musical talents, she married young and devoted herself to being a mother and housewife. She gave up her performing career, but settled into painting for another creative outlet — painting was also a hobby of George Gershwin. Gershwin tried various piano teachers for two years, and then was introduced to Charles Hambitzer by Jack Miller, the pianist in the Beethoven Symphony Orchestra. Until Hambitzer's death in 1918, he acted as Gershwin's mentor. Hambitzer taught Gershwin conventional piano technique, introduced him to music of the European classical tradition, and encouraged him to attend orchestra concerts.[5] (At home following such concerts, young Gershwin would attempt to reproduce at the piano the music that he had heard.) Gershwin later studied with classical composer Rubin Goldmark and avant-garde composer-theorist Henry Cowell.
Dmitri Hvorostovsky - "Zhuravli (The Cranes)" - Yan Frenkel - Alex
Dmitri Hvorostovsky - "Zhuravli (The Cranes)" - Yan Frenkel - Alex Frenkel was born in Kiev, Ukraine. He was originally taught violin by his father, and later studied classical violin at the Kiev Conservatory under Yakob Magaziner . During the Second World War he was evacuated to Orenburg, where he studied at the Orenburg Zenitnoe Uchilishche, and played the violin in the orchestra of the Avrora Cinema. After the war he lived in Moscow, where he wrote orchestral arrangements and played the violin in various restaurants of the city. He began composing songs in the 1960s. His first was the song Gody ('The Years'), written to lyrics by Mark Lisianski. During his later career he worked in collaboration with many prominent Soviet musicians, including Mikhael Tanich, Igor Shaferan, and the husband and wife team Konstantin Vanshenkin and Inna Goff. Thanks to Mark Bernes his song Zhuravli ('The Cranes', lyrics by Rasul Gamzatov) became a major hit. Frenkel gave concerts in which he performed his own music. During these concerts the audience would generally join in. His songs were included in the repertoire of many Soviet performers. He also appeared in the movie The Elusive Avengers, for which he composed a score. Yan Frenkel died on August 5, 1989 in Riga (as foreshadowed in his song Avgust ('August') to the lyrics of Inna Goff). His wife Natalia died in the mid 1990s, but his daughter Nina has lived in Italy since the 1980s. His grandson Ian Frenkel is a musician (pianist and arranger) in the United States Coast Guard Band ...
