Wild, passionate, and over in less than an hour, Purcell's Dido and Aeneas is one of the greatest operas ever composed and it has received some of the greatest performances of any opera ever recorded. And while some of them have been sung with more refinement or more fervor, few can match this performance with Susan Graham as Dido and Ian Bostridge as Aeneas for wild passion. Bostridge, always a passionate interpreter, tears into Aeneas with more excitement than he's brought to any other role, filling his Aeneas with strength, dedication, dignity, and overwhelming passion. And Graham, always an ardent and brilliant performer, is more affecting than any Dido since de Los Angeles, filling her Dido with warmth, love, sensuality, and overwhelming passion. The rest of the singers are all excellent, but Felicity Lott is superlative as an uncanny Sorceress and David Daniels is superb as a strange spirit. Emmanuelle Haim directs a dramatic performance from the harpsichord and Le Concert d'Astrée provides a vivid and evocative accompaniment. Virgin's sound is intimate in the intimate sections, huge in the big sections, and incredibly effective. Anyone who loves Dido and Aeneas, or even just great opera, will love this disc.

Album Description

Wild, passionate, and over in less than an hour, Purcell's Dido and Aeneas is one of the greatest operas ever composed and it has received some of the greatest performances of any opera ever recorded. And while some of them have been sung with more refinement or more fervor, few can match this performance with Susan Graham as Dido and Ian Bostridge as Aeneas for wild passion. Bostridge, always a passionate interpreter, tears into Aeneas with more excitement than he's brought to any other role, filling his Aeneas with strength, dedication, dignity, and overwhelming passion. And Graham, always an ardent and brilliant performer, is more affecting than any Dido since de Los Angeles, filling her Dido with warmth, love, sensuality, and overwhelming passion. The rest of the singers are all excellent, but Felicity Lott is superlative as an uncanny Sorceress and David Daniels is superb as a strange spirit. Emmanuelle Haim directs a dramatic performance from the harpsichord and Le Concert d'Astrée provides a vivid and evocative accompaniment. Virgin's sound is intimate in the intimate sections, huge in the big sections, and incredibly effective. Anyone who loves Dido and Aeneas, or even just great opera, will love this disc.

Scriabin's Flamboyant Raptures

Somewhat overshadowed today by his compatriots Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky and Rachmaninov, Alexander Scriabin is nonetheless a key figure in Russian music. At the beginning of the 20th century, the composer and virtuoso pianist broke away from the Romantic legacy to offer a unique and innovative musical language which no one would follow. His work, deeply influenced by mystical philosophy and synaesthesia, would undergo a dazzling evolution in barely two decades, interrupted by his premature death at the age of 43.

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.
