New DVD-ROM and DVD

The Italian Radio (RAI) broadcasts of 1951 to mark the 5oth anniversary of the death of Giuseppe Verdi. During 1951 RAI broadcast virtually all of the operas by Verdi to mark the 50th anniversary of his death in 1901. This remarkable set of performances has well stood the test of time, with many of them being reissued in different formats. This DVD-ROM brings together in mp3 form all the 21 broadcasts that have survived, in performances which really capture the unique essence of Verdi. The conductors include Mario Rossi, Fernando Previtali, Vittorio Gui, Carlo Maria Giulini and Alfredo Simonetto. Amongst the leading singers are names both now largely forgotten and others well-remembered, including Caterina Mancini, Maria Vitale, Lina Pagliughi, Gine Penno, Carlo Bergonzi,  Giacomo Lauri-Volpi, Paolo Silveri, Rolando Panerai, Gian-Giacomo Guelfi, Sesto Bruscantini, Giulio Neri, Italo Tajo, Mario Petri and Boris Christoff. A treasure-trove of great Verdi perfomances.

Rafael Kublelik conducts Janacek’s ‘Jenufa’
Jenufa: Hildegard Hillebrecht; Kostelnicka: Astrid Varnay; Laca: Willam Cochrane; Steva; Jean Cox; Bavarian State Opera Chorus and Orchestra, Rafael Kubelik, conductor. Live television broadcast from the National Theatre, Munich, 1970

The great Czech conductor Rafael Kubelik had few equals as a conductor of the operas of Janacek, and his direction of ‘Jenufa’ was particularly outstanding, remembered at Covent Garden and in both the USA and Europe. This rare recording of his conducting a performance at Munich’s National Theatre in 1970 has further advantages: the production is by the great German stage director Günther Rennert, and the cast includes the mesmerising Astrid Varnay as the Kostelnicka.

The Cetra Sopranos: Gigliola Frazzoni and Carla Gavazzi
During the post-war era the Cetra LP label introduced international audiences to many excellent Italian singers of the period, most of whom were eclipsed in the public eye by the major record companies’ contracted artists. Two of the most exciting sopranos of the period were Carla Gavazzi and Gigliola Frazzoni, both of whom delivered emotionally charged performances of the traditional operatic repertoire. This DVD-ROM brings together not only their original Cetra recordings but also live operatic performances of note.

Rudolf Kempe conducts opera in New York and London
The conductor Rudolf Kempe remains one of the greatest conductors of opera to have appeared since the Second World War, still unparalleled in his realisations of the operas of Wagner and Richard Strauss as well as of many other major composers. This new DVD-ROM brings together in mp3 format all his broadcasts from the Metropolitan Opera during the two seasons that he appeared there, 1954-1955 and 1955-1956, and many of his performances at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, from 1953 to 1973.

Homage to Flaviano Labò
The Italian tenor Flaviano Labò was a mainstay of the world’s major operatic stages from the mid-1950s to the mid-1970s. However competition was intense at this time – for instance Corelli and Bergonzi were just two distinguished contemporaries – and Labò made only two studio recordings of complete operas. This DVD-ROM seeks to redress the balance by bringing together more than a dozen recordings of Labò’s complete live opera performances on a single DVD-ROM in mp3 format, to provide an overview of his considerable strengths as a powerful and communicative singer. The list of the prima donnas with whom he sang is alone staggering: Caballé, Cerquetti, Gencer, Maragliano, Olivero, Leontyne Price, Ricciarelli, Roberti, Stella, Tebaldi, Tucci and Zeani to name just a few. Not to be missed by lovers of full-strength operatic performances.

Singing For Arthur
by Robin Moore
This book is devoted to Arthur Oldham, one of the greatest English chorus masters in the second half of the twentieth century. It is written from the point of view of a chorister who had the privilege of singing symphonic choral music under Oldham’s direction, first as a member of the LSO Chorus from 1969 to 1974 and then the Edinburgh Festival Chorus from 1974 to 1977. The book describes how Arthur Oldham became a chorus master and examines his approach and methods with regard to choral training. It looks at the origins and development of the Edinburgh Festival Chorus and Oldham’s work with the LSO Chorus. Pre-eminent among the conductors he worked with are Carlo Maria Giulini and Colin Davis and the book examines his relationship with both. The list of legendary conductors he also worked with includes Bernstein, Stokowski, Kertesz, Previn, Abbado and Barenboim. To that list two composer-conductors, Britten and Tippett need to be added, and particularly the former as Arthur was Britten’s only composition pupil. The book looks at and compares the differing interpretative approaches to the choral masterworks of these conductors and reviews the critical reaction to the resulting concerts and recordings. It also chronicles the stresses and satisfactions of an amateur chorister who has to hold down a demanding job while singing symphonic choral music at the highest level with major orchestras under leading maestros of the day.
