This 1948 action of Stoccolma is for far a better of Furtwangler registers of a German Requiem. A sound is more than acceptable, that considers that it was of the emission and that an original tape has been destroyed.

To the equal that with a lot of the work of this manager adds, this is not so only the action, and the I a lot add one in that, is an experience . Some of him is taken a lot dulcemente in fact. That is familiarised with Klemperer monumental account in EMI will be surprised that Furtwangler takes the little on thirteen minutes in a first movement when Klemperer taken so only down dec. In a second movement Furtwangler is two slow minutes that Klemperer. But when an action is of such intensity and devotion some punctual results totally took up in him and a conclusion, as in all the actions add, is that ossia absolutely right and could not be fact in another way. As like this often with Furtwangler, a cumulative effect is overwhelming. Always it could see an end of a start and the work like the whole.

A heart is excellent, how is a soloist of baritone. A soprano is less very and certainly can not be compared to Schwarzkopf in a Klemperer register. An orchestra of Stoccolma has not been one of some orchestras adds of a world, but answered to Furtwangler the vision with devotion adds. There is hang-up here and there, but the one who the subject in the action has taken?

Like this always with a focuses & of Arts of the Music, the documentation is exemplary.
4 / 5
Yes loves magnitude then Furtwangler arguably can not be surpassed in a German repertoire adds. No another manager has to that way that be lauded not even Toscanini.
This in spite of production of his and the diverse quality the one who that considers that this action has been taken of the public action has dated 1948 is not surprising.
Give 5 stars because it is Will remarkable to the Furtwangler could take so out of all the world-wide treating and his incredible vision of a music that is seamlessly has maintained throughout.

Jumps so only on he

Ossia the deeply involved action of all has involved, especially a heart. An only drawback is a soprano, the one who is a feeble link . Otherwise, A manager Furtwangler draws the wonderful response of both orchestra and heart.

Any when being no a critic of music neither having an intellectual comprising chair quite the fraud in revising this CD. I touched it in the first place while in the travesía of long bus; listening his in mine discman. It is the beautiful register of the very preferred work and he certainly enthralled me all a way in both senses; i.et A music and a travesía of bus.
A lot of rest waiting for listening the in full stereo sound.

Has to that be quite the decision to commit to the register of new studio of the piece well his like this given a big number other versions. Cio Cio The saint will be compared in a flash the Tebaldi, Brakes, Scotto, Callus and all a rest. Angela Gheorghiu sings it fantastically and with some pathos, Jonas Kaufman is splendid and can compare with a better. A register is excellent, some voices are takings almost ideally and has any noise of microphone and colouration in Kaufman for once. As I am pleased with this like this register it thoroughly modern with an excellent mould, yes still prefers Renata Scotto so Butterfly, this in spite of enjoy Tebaldi version; This a merit situates among his illustrious forebears also.
4 / 5
Glorious mould, doing as well as they sing - ossia that the work is everything roughly.. And Pappano nurtures a bookmark with all a passion and questions of tragic power. I have on grown with a Tebaldi register it but ossia so better with all the actions of round of Kaufman and Gheorghiu
exceptional. Like the version of this Puccini masterpiece will return his frequently
5 / 5
These falls to register only short to take five stars, but does a lot of registering of a work never in really of mark of full merit. Pappano Is directing is excellently adapted to a way of a history. Jonas Kaufmann (Pinkerton )Is absolutely glorious, In fact, to buy this CD dipped the must. Although Angela Gheoghiu has the a lot good-looking voice does not touch sufficiently has involved emotionally; there is not any differentiation among some emotions is expressing. Ossia My only flu .

Swift delivery and the one who the this of wonderful register!
The flange adds and stunning orchestration a plus there is never has listened this wonderful Work never sung and desires touched , only was the DVDES because it want to see a production as well as it hears his glorious sounds!
Is Puccini will love you this place of disks... If you do not know this calm Work then is in still the wonderful experience! I can it do not rent quite big!
5 / 5
Angela Gheorghiu is not not reddening little butterfly. When you Leave rasga does not take any prisoner. Tenor Reels, Under droop and some ducks of heart for coverage. It takes the moment for a singer to take to a function of butterfly this in spite of more to comprise precise to share a phase with other voices. There is a fabulous voice, has to very sure of that, but the little more shading could have helped the whole plot.
A packaging is the delight , but is then state frustrated to find a lyric discharge has German, french and Italian versions of some words, but no English!
5 / 5
The word is insufficient to describe this register of Madam Butterfly. It is all this has been expecting and the plot more. Antonio Pappano is for real the Puccini expert.
5 / 5
Is a lot of - except in of the parts where calm the just cup of a song to go to a next part - bondadoso of odd - has thought was my stereo at the beginning - but nope he he on another also - so much is a CD - but any way - is lovely to listen my preferred 'A Day Fino'

I was to return this has believed so it has been the DVD but now can not separate with him . It does not believe has any register for this artist would want part with. It is the character and can not imagine the musician the complete plus that Jonas Kaufman. Like this very happy is of tower in circulation, any one says that his defenders quite listen less often and for more than years that knows that our recognition caused ache!!!

Embroiders and utmost music. Shame a chance of CD has been streaky and broken before it was included dipatched.
5 / 5
No, it is not fooled for a hype that surrounds this emission of CD. It is almost like this because it is now like this scarce that companies records, in the declining phase, subject of new @register of work that the critiques think that that they require to promote them to say a product is better that in fact is.

Well, is not .

Vocally, Gheorghiu Is good but fault of a sweetness of bell of classical Butterflies and, in a hole, Pappano touch it orchestral is gruesome.

Has listened to this CD with my woman another night and, in mine fine-CD PLAYER, am spent to have for casualidad another Madama register of Butterfly (RCA Leontyne Estimativas / Richard Tucker / Ereich Leinsdorf - excellent!). With which in the minute there is prendido a playback and changed CDs of a far, without my woman that knows that more it was in a player. When A Leinsdorf has begun to touch say 'concealed is better, sound as have something wrong with a CD so only then'.

An orchestral sound is thin, that lacking of the deep, compared to Leinsdorf vibrant register. There is another, equally the available impressive register and, in a theatre, a lot of a lot orchestral interpreters of Butterfly, like a manager Julian Smith. Some vocal actions in this CD any up for an orchestral shortcomings.

My joint is that unless you are the collector of Butterflies, or the recently arrived those who is drawn by a billing of Gheorghiu likes spear, then remains well was.

Has purchased this - and turning Japanese for some Steams -(of some sublimate to some ridiculous?)- For the friends that goes to Giappone still is time gone in to give to them in his dinner of goodbye has appreciated so much.
5 / 5
Ossia One of these insiemi where a sum of some parts leaves one to forgive any small defects. Pappano Bars an auditor from now on to a tragic end and is a complete opposite of Karajan the one who need three disks for his expansionary, view of epic.

But more the people will be attracted for Gheorghiu and is glorious. Each sentence is sung with scrupulous musicianship, exemplary diction, and true feeling. It can be missing of a last bit of paint' can in some moments plus very dramatic that Tebaldi or Callus or Scotto compensates with sweet, soul your rounded and delicate shading, without appealing to artifically fabricating the 'little daughter' voice. In this sense is more afterwards to Brakes or perhaps of the Angeles in his approximation.

His Pinkerton, Jonas Kaufman, is the mixed blessing. In a one hands his is an interesting voice with the baritonal bell, company and young. This in spite of has the I quite dry that touch the voice and his soft flange is being missing of in Italianate sweetness (likes to take with Bergonzi and Pavarotti, Bjorling, has given Stefano). A time still has any Latin juicy 'ping' in his big notes that these other tenors give neither. It is not the very sympathetic function, but finds slightly unidiomatic. Alagna Could have been better...

Sharpless And Suzuki is well, if the shadow undercharacterised (Gobbi is unmatched like sharpless). A sound is respendent, although I have thought a too far heart in a humming heart (still although this leaves the new recognition of Puccini like orchestrator...).

Can tolerate the historical register would suggest to try Victory of the Angeles' first register on Will (concentrated for Gavazzeni, with has given Stefano and Gobbi) to listen that it thinks is an action more orders on disk. A simply falls enamoured with this Cio Cio a sound is in sure ancient ape good.

This together new will give a lot of pleasure I any small reservations. For an alternative stereo register, Karajan Decca the neighbour is very beautiful, if enough indulgently directed and Brakes is glorious likes Cio Cio Santo. Scotto First EMI conjoint with Bergonzi is acclaimed correctly (although his big notes are sour).

Antonio Pappano record of Madama the butterfly is likely to be considered like legendary as, for example, Victor of Sábata Tosca with Callus-has given Stefano-Gobbi or Gentleman Thomas Beecham Bohème with Of the Angeles-Björling-Merrill. It is the formidable action , full of dynamics, vitalities and desesperanza harrowing, very been due to a glorious flange of Angela Gheorghiu in a main part, one the majority of vulnerable and disconsolate heroine in a repertoire of whole work. It is tender, with distinctions subtiles, and voluminously awe-inspiring in his desperation. His 'A bel has given will see' is incomparable and , supposes, goes in stops to be so much. In everything, ossia the creation of function of the bondadoso that the frames have included the superlatives turn pale.
Is Jonas very assisted Kaufmann, the one who the maximum of a ungrateful anti-function of heroine of Pinkerton, his tenor that is one the majority of versatile and expressive one among young tenors to-day. Enkelejda Shkosa And Fabio Capitanucci complete a main pair excellently eat Suzuki and Sharpless, a last the classical Italian baritone of Gobbi-like height. All some the smallest parts am very fill up, and Corazón of Cecilia of the Saint and the orchestra resembles glow with particular ardour and elevate to the maximum level under an inspiring guidance of Pappano.
Puccini Has had mostly an exceptional capacity to press a melodious web to a climax to absorb in an end of some laws, and Pappano and his triumph of singers in these summits. A fiery duet of amour in an end of Work is rapturous, how is a bitter end of Law II, breathtakingly tragic, with this emotion of horror that is true to a dramatic meaning of the real tragedy.
Highly recommended, of course! Ossia The winner of confidence and a everlasting joy, any to be neglected by any lover of work.

An a lot of fact that this register has been done at all is the cause for celebration. One 2004 'Tristan und Isolde' has been declared for EMI to be a last commercial register of his class; from now on the work would be available so only on DVD is alive actions - but here is with the new mark soyadama Butterfly' treated for the upper-estimate launched and manager. When you Result a Manager of Real Work of Music in 2002, Pappano has sworn to do register so only with his resident forces, but when being the pragmatist and very first has given of an old school, he sensibly compromised his principles when an occasion is arisen to do this register in Rome. Of a register of work can incur the costs that approximation the averages the million books, the facts felt to integrate a register to an annual schedule of a National Academy has given Santo Cecilia. Overheads Like a room, a recording studio and an orchestra was absorbed like this inside an Academy the estimativa and a project is resulted commercially feasible. Besides, a timing was a lot: had a paste of the current financial crisis earlier, or a register plans state retarded, some marvels if there is not never of an earth.

To the equal that has each reason to acclaim and hope that like this risked the adventure like the new, complete, the register of work tries financially succesful. I seat the sure pressure on eat me the reviewer to be like this positive like possible in this together - and, felizmente, concealed is not too hard. Some indications are all good: a reigning EMI wife diva Angela Gheorghiu has the particular affinity with Puccini; his voice there is so only a legislation plangency and morbidezza for his heroes. It has not sung a function on phase - but then, has had neither Mirella Brakes when you it his seminal version with Karajan - and in fact, does not treat it never alive. German tenor Jonas Kaufmann is one of a two or three quoted more in a circuit, with the voice of a class of heft ossia all too scarce today. Antonio Pappano is looking for to be one the majority of dependable and achieved of managers; in spite of being so only in mid-the career has has done already the registers of work of the dozen the time when more the managers can so only sleep of like this doing. Finally, an idea to return that it imports he Puccini registering to a National Academy has given Santo Cecilia has the nostalgic as well as the practical appeal: they were manager for registers of legion of upper quality in a 50 east.

To the equal that can I be sufficiently positive in this register? Yes; but with some qualifications. Sinister start with an obvious: a sound is spectacularly well; spacious, warm, and upper in any leading neighbour - so much so that there is enough the plot of external noise, especially if one listens by means of headphones: it creaks, thumps, groans and the cars that accelerates everything forms the sonic underlay, like this acute is some microphones. The balances are very good and a virtuosidad of Pappano the orchestra is there for everything to listen; there is energy and attack in abundance, in combination with some lovely gradation of dynamics. Few details and the emergent subtleties under Pappano direction; there is clearly king-has thought a bookmark and has spent his customary zest to resist. Karajan Reading - my comparison of point for of main reference - is often more along breathed and more glorious, and a sound the little more plush, less aimed - but has not listened a lot of complaints in any sound in leader or a technical quality of a Decca register.

Soyadama Butterfly' stand of must or fall for a quality of his two principals, but will treat a mould of first support. All are more than pertinent, this in spite of each one which so it is bettered elsewhere. I have believed whenever Robert Kerns Sharpless, in a Karajan near, is unfairly state critiqued for dullness; has the pleasant voice and answered so wisely and sympathetically to a caddish Pinkerton self-has caused predicament. It is a lot of Gobbi, whose nuanced vocalisation, averts of some tension in an upper achieves of his row, is ideal near in a 1954 that the records have directed for Gavazzeni. Compared with both of these, Fabio Capitanucci is the bit of the bellower; has the good voice but pocola subtlety. It likes Suzuki, Enkelejda Shkosi is the little wobbly and matronly has compared with Christa Ludwig, although his Duet of Flower with Gheorghiu goes a lot well. Similarly, Cristina Reale Kate develops also wobble in his few sentences. Gregory Bonfatti Goro has one of this 'cutting flange' tenors of character that beats appreciated in an ear; a lot it prefers Michel Sénéchal silky insolence in a Karajan. Raymond Vinegar Bonzo is simply unacceptable; his uningratiating the tone is like this bad to the equal that have agreed (of the his Capellio in 'I Capuleti and the Montecchi'); I give Marius Rintzler' his noble any day now. A heart is excellent, especially some ladies that accompanies Butterfly to the equal that locate a hill.

Now to a reason to be of this together: Gheorghiu' Butterfly. As with his registers of 'The Rondine' and 'Tosca', both fact before it have sung some separates on phase, ossia his first test is the majority of demanding of lyric-pushed work - although not to guess it never. Really alive a part and the sure moments are unforgettably has @to @give : a searing, surging desesperanza of his 'Ah! There is scordata?', A lovely, liquid portamenti in a duet of amour, a heart-rending cries of soyorta!' Has' what had heart' - like this Sharpless commentaries, 'That mercies' in fact; it does not fail never to move. Still without enough having some vocal resources of some of the his illustrious vocal forebears, directs triumphantly a transition of fragile adolescent the mother of heart and the woman broken the tragic hero. It can not emulate a unearthly beauty of Mirella Brakes is floated D-slowly in a gone in air - Gheorghiu is is not ideally in bylines - but she almost all more admirably. His defenders will love this together for his action so only. ( There is a puzzling little rarity, quotes an obvious time and question expended in this register: Gheorghiu fluffs some words in a start of Law 2, saying 'Because it answered' in place of 'has'. An insignificant error - but reason any king-take?)

Finally, Jonas Kaufmann Pinkerton - and for me, here is a rubs. I have it quell'has very admired his flange, both alive and on disk, although it was far less enthusiastic that some in his flange of some functions of classical Italian tenor in his disk of recital; it looks mine that his bell is far better adapted the Weber, Wagner and Bizet Gentleman José and I listen at all here to change my alcohol. I lose a smile in a voice, a Italianate gleam, a seamless legated of the true Puccini to the tenor likes Pavarotti in his prime. Kaufmann hefty, baritonal The sound certainly is that it thrills and there is each justification to characterise a cruel, feckless Pinkerton like the bit of the gross. This, apparently, was Kaufmann conception of Pinkerton as 'cold, calculating'; he both suitable his voice and exlains reason, according to reports, both Gheorghiu and Pappano has called the passion more orders in a music of amour, but robs Pinkerton of an essential vocal appearance and an audience of any casualidad to suspend his condemnation of an essentially unattractive anti-hero. You owe that think that Pinkerton, like the 'wandering Yankee', temporarily believes his own lies while it is serenading his new boy-woman. Besides, I am disturbed for Kaufmann apparent acquisition of the vocal bad habit new: repeatedly it injects little glottal sobs to that it would have to be it the seamless sound. Probably He this for emotional effect but too much of 'his tears in the voice' resulted the tiresome tic. A short of his voice, although often that it thrill, does not develop or caress in a way of apes like Bergonzi or Björling, for this a climactic B-plans of 'Amsterdam for ever' is uncomfortable, a pianissimi can turn husky, and too many big notes are approached with this little bleat which interrupts a line. Still I have enjoyed a lot listen to his viril, his amateur, but has found his portrait of Pinkerton the tad two-dimensional, and expect that it does not leave a glottal the habit takes root in his voice.

A packaging of this neighbour is the '2CD Edition has limited deluxe clamshell, [with] 152pp booklet, libretto, synopsis, liner notes, [and] photos'. It say of another way,, fantastically presented - although a way a booklet rattles inner one in the big box is the bit to nettle . Coincidentally, This year sees one 150th anniversary of Puccini birth; this new register certainly lucido honour he but will not substitute a Karajan in my loyalties.

Ossia Another creditable action of Madama Butterfly. Angela Gheorgiu sings a function of title with good-looking tonal quality and emotional expression. Jonas Kaufmann Adds his supreme musicality like Pinkerton and some other main characters of Suzuki and Sharpless is sung a lot well. But a star of a show is Puccini and his wonderful sense of theatre and orchestration that an orchestra of National Academy has given Santa Cecilia touches to perfection goes down a baton of Pappano. A critique so only is the tendency to flood some singers occasionally. In a whole, the worthy tribute to a composer.
5 / 5
In front of everything are them the big defender of Angela Gheorghiu but still would not doubt to critises his register is so only perfect for his and another ,Suzuki,Sharpless is everything perfectly casted and roughly Antonio Pappano is directing is any reason anymore to speak reason is so only fill to be able to,harmonies and beatiful colours.
He Love the Butterfly that calm you amenos the tears,that the recomend this registering to all the world-wide any one discovers the new but astounding Madamma Butterfly.

Yes, in a sport there any must to be the winner ;felizmente in an art some winners can be much more!
In this register is still five nomination the conquest a big plus is the same, improves each one which so another.
Already has 'Butterly' with Sinopoli and Karajan,but with Pappano and his mould ,this work touch in the first place time like this deeply-I found my Butterfly-Gheorghiu ,so that offered,like this poetic,and vulnerable !
Kaufmann A lot of persuasive like this lover,and like this dramatic in his desperation !
Pappano, Orchestra dell National Academy has given Santa Cecilia,Gheorghiu and Kaufmann .(Ossia My favourite mould )
And finally a winner a big plus are is- an audience!
Real masterpice !!!

Honradamente Can say that have enjoyed really a whole of this register. Both Kaufmann and Gheorghiu is glorious, some singers of support are all splendid and an orchestral touching glorious under a baton of Antonio Pappano. Calm will not be disappointed in this yes calm register already enjoyed some vocal qualities of Kaufmann and Gheorghiu, and @give that ossia an individual election .

Beautiful, pursuing sonorous music - spiritual more than religious in feeling. I have listened the clue in Classical FM and was impressed like this has had to that buy a CD - in prize of @@subject on has walked.

A CD has arrangements of Gurdjieff spiritual music for cello and piano, as well as five pieces for pianist Tsabropoulos. A music often has a Armenian, Ukranian and your Orthodox Greek and is touched in the subdued and almost introvert way.

ECM boss of focus Manfred Eicher obviously ports an interest in a Armenian &8220;incidental composer&8221; Gurdjieff whose quotation in a concrete inner content of ancient art adorns a coverage of one of a focuses&8217;s the majority of celebrated register, &8220;Morimur&8221; and 15 of of which the compositions have been previously registered for Keith Jarrett and released in a focuses.
Gurdjieff Has run an Institute for a Harmonious Development of the next man Fountainebleu and is described likes &8220;philosopher, reconciler of science and esoteric lore&8221; in an informative liner notes. In spite of Gurdjieff&8217;s shamanistic side, pianist Tsabropoulos and cellist Lechner has been in of the aches to stress that his interest was musical and no philosophical
In all the chance, fijamente Gurdjieff&8217;s compositions of piano for piano and cello, has created the glorious album that, develop an inner content to date any apparent, stands like the document of the confluence in of the sensibilities and of the musical fashions, where east fulfils west. Gurdjieff&8217;S the compositions owe that to intriguing and exotic titles like &8220;Flange of the Saint Book&8221;, &8220;Duduki&8221; (a Armenian instrument of wind) and more than everything in the each sense &8220;Woman of Assyrian Mourners&8221; of the that appoints is reminiscent of to the titles like &8220;Song of a Thracian Plain&8221; of a 4album of the AD of Bulgarian choral music has titled &8220;he Mystere dex Bulgarian Voices.&8221;
Has the richness and fullness in a sound in spite of a presence of only two instruments. It was familiarised with Tsabropoulos of his action in Arild Andersen&8217;s &8220;A Triangle&8221; and his album of only &8220;Akroasis&8221;. Well although those are, Tsabropoulos&8217;s the action achieves another level here. His piano has an extraordinary sound, full of religious purity and has ensured still ethereal and hypnotic and has echoes of nineteenth a lot of late century and twentieth music of the piano of the century likes Debussy, Ravel and Satie. This in spite of, for all a plaudits deservedly has directed the Tsabropolous, Lechner&8217;s cello is a revelation resupplying the weight, dissonance and contrast to a piano that means that a more next comparison to this register is a wonderful &8220;Music for Egon Schiele&8221; for an American gender-jumping group, Rachel&8217;s, which would recommend unreservedly.
Rid-finalised for of the variac. Of &8220; it Embroiders Of the Saint Woman&8221; ossia an album in those very few moments are less than spellbinding. Paradoxically, two of some signals underlined for me is both Tsabropoulos compositions, a second and third of one &8220;pieces of trios apr&232;s give hymns byzantins&8221; that forms a centrepiece of an album. One revises has read was quite dismissive of Tsabropoulos&8217;s compositional skills, comparing his pieces the music of light new age. Similar claims are entirely misplaced and pieces II and III is absolutely glorious in his beauty.
Perhaps included better that these this in spite of is an outside- has mentioned &8220;Woman of Assyrian Mourners.&8221; there is the few moments in music that augments on some a lot of thousands of hours of the beauty registered in all his forms and these twelfth rivals of clues a 18th to 24.os small of a second movement of Jarrett&8217;s &8220;it Scale&8221; to the respect. For this reason so only, ossia an album the cherish.
