    18222 Rossini: William Tell

    18222 Rossini: William Tell

    William Tell is a French-language opera in four acts by Italian composer Gioachino Rossini to a libretto by Victor-Joseph Étienne de Jouy and L. F. Bis, based on Friedrich Schiller's play Wilhelm Tell, which, in turn, drew on the William Tell legend. The opera was Rossini's last, although he lived for nearly 40 more years. Fabio Luisi said that Rossini planned for Guillaume Tell to be his last opera even as he composed it.  The often-performed overture in four sections features a depiction of a storm and a vivacious finale, the "March of the Swiss Soldiers".Paris Opéra archivist Charles Malherbe discovered the original orchestral score of the opera at a secondhand book seller's shop, resulting in its being acquired by the Paris Conservatoire.Conducted by Kathryn CavanaughCMD Grand Opera Company of VenicePurchase the music (without talk) at:Rossini: William Tell (classicalsavings.com)Your purchase helps to support our show! Classical Music Discoveries is sponsored by La Musica International Chamber Music Festival and Uber. @khedgecock#ClassicalMusicDiscoveries #KeepClassicalMusicAlive#LaMusicaFestival #CMDGrandOperaCompanyofVenice #CMDParisPhilharmonicinOrléans#CMDGermanOperaCompanyofBerlin#CMDGrandOperaCompanyofBarcelonaSpain#ClassicalMusicLivesOn#Uber Please consider supporting our show, thank you!http://www.classicalsavings.com/donate.html staff@classicalmusicdiscoveries.com

    18195 Sibelius: Complete Symphonies

    18195 Sibelius: Complete Symphonies

    The project began as a nine-month exploration of the Sibelius symphonies to mark Mäkelä’s inaugural season with the Oslo Philharmonic as Chief Conductor but, with Covid cancellations, turned into a completely immersive recording project. With the orchestral season disrupted, Mäkelä and the orchestra devoted much of the Spring of 2021 to playing nothing but the music of Sibelius.Purchase the music (without talk) at:Sibelius: Complete Symphonies (classicalsavings.com)Your purchase helps to support our show! Classical Music Discoveries is sponsored by La Musica International Chamber Music Festival and Uber. @khedgecock#ClassicalMusicDiscoveries #KeepClassicalMusicAlive#LaMusicaFestival #CMDGrandOperaCompanyofVenice #CMDParisPhilharmonicinOrléans#CMDGermanOperaCompanyofBerlin#CMDGrandOperaCompanyofBarcelonaSpain#ClassicalMusicLivesOn#Uber Please consider supporting our show, thank you!http://www.classicalsavings.com/donate.html staff@classicalmusicdiscoveries.com This album is broadcasted with the permission of Katy Solomon from Morahana Arts and Media.

    18230 Rossini - Aureliano in Palmira

    18230 Rossini - Aureliano in Palmira

    Aureliano in Palmira is an operatic dramma serio in two acts written by Gioachino Rossini to an Italian libretto in which the librettist was credited only by the initials "G. F. R." The libretto has generally been attributed to Felice Romani, but sometimes to the otherwise unknown Gian Francesco Romanelli.  It has been suggested that the latter name may have resulted from a confusion of Romani with Luigi Romanelli, La Scala's house poet prior to Romani's appointment to the post.Purchase the music (without talk) at:Rossini: Aureliano in Palmira (classicalsavings.com)Your purchase helps to support our show! Classical Music Discoveries is sponsored by La Musica International Chamber Music Festival and Uber. @khedgecock#ClassicalMusicDiscoveries #KeepClassicalMusicAlive#LaMusicaFestival #CMDGrandOperaCompanyofVenice #CMDParisPhilharmonicinOrléans#CMDGermanOperaCompanyofBerlin#CMDGrandOperaCompanyofBarcelonaSpain#ClassicalMusicLivesOn#Uber Please consider supporting our show, thank you!http://www.classicalsavings.com/donate.html staff@classicalmusicdiscoveries.com

Brilliant

Wonderful but maybe we could do without the ads for blankets!

Occasional gems, lots of worthless stuff put out for no good reason

This is a very odd podcast. Amid some real gems are lots of fluff. Not really classical, or off somewhere in left field. I am open to ‘new’ music, but many of the offerings are trite, weird, or boring. There’s no editorial judgment applied, apparently. Three hours of a trumpet making screeching noises. Really? For the claim of millions of listeners, it seems very sloppy. The program notes are absurdly florid, seemingly starting in mid paragraph. The names of performers or composers, if mentioned at all, are just last name. Track listings, if present, have format all over the place. There were several podcasts with glaring typos in the titles. Just sloppy. And then there are the ads for blankets…

Digital moonscapes

And the Bach digitized Brandenburg concerti are by Wendy Carlos. Rather well known if you are into early midi realizations.

Pretty sure that “Leicester” in Donizetti’s Maria Stuarda is pronounced “Lester” by the English.
