Recorded in 2013 at the BBC Proms in celebration of Richard Wagner's bicentennial year, this semi-staged concert performance of Parsifal with the Hallé Orchestra is part of Sir Mark Elder's series of the music dramas, intermittently issued since 2010, which includes Götterdämmerung and Die Walküre, along with projected releases of Das Rheingold and Lohengrin. The stateliness of Wagner's music and the slow pace of the drama give Parsifal some resemblance to a liturgical ceremony, and the frequent use of the Dresden Amen as a leitmotif reminds us that this work is indeed a "Festival Play for the Consecration of a Stage," composed for the dedication of Wagner's Festspielhaus at Bayreuth. Taking rather slow tempos, Elder captures the reverent, mystical mood that is required in Parsifal, and the cast delivers a compelling performance that works well on disc. Sir John Tomlinson is a stalwart Gurnemanz, who carries the opening with clear narration, while Katarina Dalayman is powerful as Kundry, Detlef Roth is a sympathetic Amfortas, and a light-voiced Lars Cleveman conveys the naïve but passionate Grail knight. Listeners will likely savor this recording for the committed playing and sumptuous sound of the Hallé, which is well suited to Wagner's rich score and the vibrant acoustics of the Royal Albert Hall.

Album Description

Recorded in 2013 at the BBC Proms in celebration of Richard Wagner's bicentennial year, this semi-staged concert performance of Parsifal with the Hallé Orchestra is part of Sir Mark Elder's series of the music dramas, intermittently issued since 2010, which includes Götterdämmerung and Die Walküre, along with projected releases of Das Rheingold and Lohengrin. The stateliness of Wagner's music and the slow pace of the drama give Parsifal some resemblance to a liturgical ceremony, and the frequent use of the Dresden Amen as a leitmotif reminds us that this work is indeed a "Festival Play for the Consecration of a Stage," composed for the dedication of Wagner's Festspielhaus at Bayreuth. Taking rather slow tempos, Elder captures the reverent, mystical mood that is required in Parsifal, and the cast delivers a compelling performance that works well on disc. Sir John Tomlinson is a stalwart Gurnemanz, who carries the opening with clear narration, while Katarina Dalayman is powerful as Kundry, Detlef Roth is a sympathetic Amfortas, and a light-voiced Lars Cleveman conveys the naïve but passionate Grail knight. Listeners will likely savor this recording for the committed playing and sumptuous sound of the Hallé, which is well suited to Wagner's rich score and the vibrant acoustics of the Royal Albert Hall.

Undervalued: a Look Back on Female Composers

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho and Clara Schumann, several women have managed to break through the macho codes of the milieu and become composers. While the classical music landscape has been largely dominated by men in recent centuries, the work of their female colleagues, whether pioneers or contemporaries, is just as fascinating. Here we put eleven undervalued figures of female composition in the spotlight.
