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
Pavane pour une Infante Défunte by Maurice Ravel ピアノバージョンです。 "Pavane pour une Infante défunte" Maurice Ravel
Maurice Ravel. Pavane pour une infante défunte. Versión extraída del Cd "Adagio Karajan II". Ravel compuso esta famosa pieza, para piano solo, en 1899; en 1910 publicó una versión orquestada de la misma. Ricardo Viñes fue quien la estrenó, tocandola en Paris el 5 de abril de 1902. La pavana (pavane) era una danza lenta y solemne que gozó de mucha popularidad en el Renacimiento; sin embargo, esta pieza de Ravel no tiene de pavana más que el título. Música tranquila y serena, me gusta.

Mozart Piano Concerto 20, K 466 (Ivan Klánský) mvt 1, pt 1 go here to see part 2 of the first movement (Allegro):\ www.youtube.com to see score of the K. 466, go here: dme.mozarteum.at Ivan Klánský, Piano Virtuosi Di Praga, Jiri Belohlavek, Conductor Recorded Live At The Rittersaal Of Palais Waldstein, 19--20 November 1990 Charles Rosen ("The Classical Style: Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven") writes: ..But even at a time when Mozart's reputation was low--when his grace obscured his power--the estimation of this work remained high. It is not a work, of course, that is much discussed (it excites no controversy) or much imitated; nor is it the favorite Mozart concerto of many musicians just as no one's favorite Leonardo is the 'Mona Lisa". Like the G minor symphony and 'Don Giovanni', the D minor concerto can be said to transcend it's own excellences. The historic importance of the K. 466 is that it belongs to the series of works that made Mozart the supreme composer in most musician's minds within ten years of his death. It represents the Mozart who was considered the 'greatest' of the Romantic composers, and it was the character of this work and a few others like it that pushed Haydn in the background for more than a century. It was the concerto that Beethoven played and wrote cadenzas for. It is the fullest realization of that aspect of Mozart that the nineteenth century quite rightly named 'daemonic', and which, for so long, made a balanced assessment of the rest of his work so difficult. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791 ...

Fauré - Pavana (Pavane) - Orquesta y coro - With choir La pavana de Gabriel Fauré, una de las obras más bellas de la música occidental. Orquesta y coro. Desconozco los intérpretes.

Peoples Artist of Russia he was the leading soloist of the Academic Kirov Opera & Ballet Theatre in Petersburg. On the stage of this theatre he created a whole gallery of unforgottable characters. In 1949 eighteen-year old Boris enterd at the Sverdlovsk (Ekaterinburg) Conservatory. When still a sophomore he sings at the Opera.

In things discovered long ago I would like to discover their innermost meaning, get to the very heart of my characters, - writes Shtokolov. I want to rediscover each role. For instance I want to sing the part of Boris again & again. The profound quality of music, text & character is so great then even if I could live three lives it still would not be enough to apprehend it all In 1959 Boris Shtokolov is invited to sing at the Opera & Ballet Theatre in Leningrad. Besides the aforementioned roles Shtokolovs repertory includes Ivan Susanin, Ruslan in Glinkas operas, Demon in Demon by Rubinstain AG, Kochubey in Mazepa by Tchaikovsky, Mephistopheles in Faust Gounod etc Boris Shtokolov ...
"Ouvre Ton Coeur a L'Amour" from Bizet's Opera, Ivan IV Though Bizet is most certainly best known for his classical treatment of the Spanish gypsy, Carmen, his career included several dramatic works of various success both from a commercial and a creative point of view but which, nevertheless, fell out of the active repertory, only to be rediscovered in recent times. One of these pieces is a grand opera, "Ivan IV". Hailing from the early 1860s and composed just before "Les pecheurs de perles" it represents an attempt by Bizet to use the Meyerbeerian idiom to enliven a rather illogical story of a romantic entanglement at the court of the Russian Tzar: the story is about Ivan the Terrible, his requited love for a Circassian maiden and court intrigue that ensnares her father and brother in an assassination plot; Ivan appears at the end to save the siblings and replace them on the gallows with the evil courtier, Yorloff. It wasn't a success (perhaps, it just wasn't the right time, as grand opera was falling out of favor after the poor showing of Meyerbeer's "L'Africaine" in 1865, while Bizet himself had yet to attract a strong enough following), though it does seem to be an ambitious project. There is a full recording of the work but the present except comes from a series of highlights which provide a supplement for a 1962 recording of "Les pecheurs" with Nicolai Gedda and Janine Micheau.
