    Tried to find some recordings of my favourite interpreter of Chopin's songs and found this aria by Gluck by her:



    Pretty nice coloratura-mess.

    Stumbles across this today, by accident and find it hilarious. Always loved this part for the music but this dance (the dance, literally, not the music) is so delightful. And I never saw so much great customes at one time, or any other ballet scene made with such flourish, truely splendid sight:

    I begin to start every of my posts "accidentally I stumbled upon..." but I can't help it, again, by accident, I have stumbled today upon stuff by Mykola Lysenko I've posted somewhere else and again I must regret his music is not avaiable anywhere.

    Like this magnificent overture ending with one of greatest folk stylizations ever:



    Or this aria:

    With Marietta's Lied, the song of Pierrot is perhaps the most popular fragment of Die Tote Stadt, and one of the best of this wonderful score.

    In the tempo of a "slow and sentimental vals", Pierrot starts to sing this beatiful rondo:



    As we can see Korngold request to sing rubato, mark the portamenti, there are aslo tempo markings practically in each bar... We hear a sweet melody, but also pervaded with a subte irony. The baritone must produce some high F and G flat in piano. Near the end, a mysterious choir of eight sopranos, maybe the answer of the city of Bruges to Fritz, drove us to the piece climax, with the last "zurück" an almost imperceptible pianissimo.




    FRITZ
    Mein Sehnen, mein Wähnen,
    Es träumt sich zurück.
    Im Tanze gewann ich,
    Verlor ich mein Glück.
    Im Tanze am Rhein,
    Bei Mondenschein,
    Gestand mirs aus Blauaug
    Ein inniger Blick,
    Gestand mirs ihr bittend Wort
    O bleib, o geh mir nicht fort,
    Bewahre der Heimat
    Still blühendes Glück –
    Mein Sehnen, mein Wähnen,
    Es träumt sich zurück…
    Zauber der Ferne
    Warf in die Seele
    Den Brand
    Zauber des Tanzes
    Lockte, ward Komödiant,
    Folgt ihr, der Wundersüßen,
    Lernt unter Tränen küssen.

    8 SOPRANOS
    Ah, Ah!

    FRITZ
    Rausch und Not – Wahn und Glück:
    Ach, das ist Gauklers Geschick…
    Mein Sehnen, mein Wähnen,
    Es träumt sich zurück,
    Zurück, zurück…


    There are some great performances of the Pierrot's lied, let's hear some of them:

    1.- Gerald Finley from the Covent Garden



    2.- Bo Skovhus from the Liceu




    3.- The fantastic performance from Hermann Prey in his first recording of the piece, back in 1957.



    4.- And the two best, in my opinion, for the last. First, in 1930 Karl Hammes gave us this great recording, in a tempo slightly quicker than usual, following indications by Korngold himself, and where we can appreciate fully the wonderful effect of the eight sopranos choir:



    5.- And baritone Carlo Drago Hrzic in 1928, the ideal voice for Pierrot.

    Mein Sehnen, mein Whänen - Carlo Drago Hrzic

    Now would someone please remove "Du bist die welt für mich" from my brain as I can't get it out myself? I thought I would laugh at this schmaltzy stuff. Instead I can't stop humming it.

    Is it my German DNA? I did once own a cassette of Austrian oompah band music from my time there that I played nonstop, and I still play my Austrian folk music Christmas CD constantly over the holidays. Argh. dooooooobistdiewellllltttfuuuuuurmiiiiiichhhhhhlaa alaaalaaalaaallaaalaaaa *waltzes around office*

    Vielen Dank, FragendeFrau! These clips are from the "Summit of the Stars" series of concerts which JK, Anna, and her Significant Other (no, not Alma! ) have been giving in Europe this summer. Perhaps if we're lucky, this may be released on DVD when the series is complete. There are lots of interesting items in their program, including Anna and Erwin singing a duet from Porgy and Bess.
