    The Three Tenors 25th Anniversary (Awaiting Repress)

    The Three Tenors is a name given to the Spanish singers Plácido Domingo and JosÉ Carreras and the Italian singer Luciano Pavarotti, who sang in concert under this banner during the 1990s and early 2000s. The trio began their collaboration with a performance at the ancient Baths of Caracalla, in Rome, Italy, on 7 July 1990 the eve of the 1990 FIFA World Cup Final. Zubin Mehta conducted the orchestra of Maggio Musicale Fiorentino and the orchestra of Teatro dell'Opera di Roma.

    Mozart Requiem (Speakers Corner)

    Among all those sacred compositions that deal with the end of life, Mozart's Requiem penetrates one's heart and soul like no other apocalyptic work. One reason for this is surely the rather mysterious story surrounding its composition, a mixture of truth and legend, which arose during the arduous last months of the ailing Salzburg composer. Although the various developmental stages and the extent to which Mozart's pupils participated in the composition may never be fully clarified, the mystical power of the enigmatic fragments remains constant to this day.



    Sir Colin Davis lends an immediate relentlessness to the sounds of despair that is already apparent in the tense, pulsating opening bars, and which is taken to the very limits of playability in the climactic Dies irae. While the swift tempi might appear rather surprising, they serve to dampen any sort of opera-like sentimentality of which many recordings are guilty. The consolatory timbre in the vocal parts make them come across as oases of calm in the prevailing atmosphere of biting cold, fearsome drama, and flickering hope, all of which breathes musical life into this mass for the dead.



    Musicians:



    • Soloists

    • The John Alldis Choir

    • The BBC Symphony Orchestra

    • Sir Colin Davis (conductor)

    About Speakers Corner



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Nessun Dorma - The Puccini Album

    After years of singing Giacomo Puccini's heroes on stage to vast critical and audience acclaim, "the world's greatest tenor"(The Daily Telegraph), Jonas Kaufmann, finally records an album entirely devoted to the world's most-loved opera composer. The new album, Nessun dorma is a selection of Puccini's stupendous tenor arias drawn from his greatest opera's including Tosca, Manon Lescaut, La Bohème, Madame Butterfly and La fanciulla del West. Spanning the breadth of Puccini's output from the early operas Le Villi and Edgar, the album culminates in the mighty aria "Nessun dorma" from his final opera Turandot. Jonas Kaufmann is joined on this album by Maestro Antonio Pappano, the Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and soprano Kristine Opolais. Nessun Dorma - The Puccini Album is also available on 180-gram vinyl and on CD as a Deluxe Edition with a bonus DVD that includes an EPK plus excerpts from upcoming DVD releases Manon Lescaut and La Fanciulla del West.


    Munich-born singer, Jonas Kaufmann, is without a doubt at the absolute top echelon of the operatic world. He is in extreme demand with the world's most influential conductors, selling out opera houses and concert venues months in advance wherever he performs. In 2011, he received the Opera News Award in New York and was made a Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in France. He has been awarded "Singer of the Year" by many prestigious journals including ECHO Klassic and Musical America. Kaufmann is also an internationally sought-after concert and lieder singer. In October of 2011 he performed the first solo recital to be given at the Metropolitan Opera since Luciano Pavarotti in 1994

    Russian Orchestal Music - Barenboim - Chicago Symphony Orchestra on 180g Import LP


    "There is no one quite like Daniel Barenboim today in the music world. General music director of the Berlin State Opera and its orchestra, the Berlin Staatskapelle; principal guest conductor at the Teatro Alla Scala in Milan; formerly music director of the Chicago Symphony and the Orchestre de Paris; for years a conductor at the Bayreuth and Salzburg festivals; a champion of new music since the 1950s; a chamber musician who has performed with every great singer and instrumentalist in half a century, from Gregor Piatigorsky and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau to his late wife, the cellist Jacqueline du PrÉ, and the bass-baritone Thomas Quasthoff, Mr. Barenboim was a child prodigy who remains, despite a full-time conducting career, a towering figure at the keyboard." - Michael Kimmelman, New York Times


    Here, the 2003 Grammy-winner conducts the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in performances of Borodin's Polovtsian Dances, Mussorgsky's Night On The Bald Mountain, and Rimsky-Korssakoff's Russian Easter Overture and Capriccio Espagnol. 180g vinyl pressing from Clearaudio.


    "Beautiful though their melodies remain, the "Polovtsian Dances" mean less when, as here, deprived of voices. This is a very animated performance, however, with fine playing by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and first-class recording, everything being absolutely distinct in well-proportioned stereo, and with virtually no tape hiss. Stich points have even more importance than usual in items like those by Rimsky-Korsakov, which are mainly studies in orchestral colour." - Gramophone/1977

    Strauss: Elektra (Speakers Corner)

    Richard Strauss was filled with doubt as to whether he would be capable of expressing in music the crazed revenge of Elektra after writing his opera Salome with its shocking story. It is quite understandable that he had trouble in composing the work, although such difficulties are not in the least evident during the course of the drama or in the musical flow. Drawing on natural sources, the forceful melodies make use of polyphonic, complex motifs and extreme dissonances. Here and there, Strauss's typical chordal harmonies gleam through, though hardly audible, taking the harsh dissonances and chromaticism to the very extremes of atonality.




    Sir Georg Solti, whose outstanding Strauss interpretations constitute the focus of his life's work, leads the enormous orchestra through the highly complex score and provides his singers with a powerful but finely chiselled sound. Birgit Nilsson personifies an icy-cold Elektra consumed with hatred, and her counterpart Regina Resnik as Clytemnestra is no less extreme in her role. Gerhard Stolze, one of the greatest singers of his time, masters the exhausting role of Aegistheus, and Tom Krause is highly convincing as the determined Orestes. The phenomenal acoustics of Vienna's Sofiensaal provided an ideal recording venue, and the audible quality of the sung text is excellent - although the final bloodbath can scarcely be expressed in words.




    Recording: June, September and November 1966 at Sofiensaal, Vienna, by Gordon Parry and James Brown

    Production: John Culshaw and Christopher Raeburn

    Ballet Music From The Opera

    Mastered By Willem Makee From The Original Master Tapes


    Anatole Fistoulari was always a specialist in the interpretation of ballet music. He was also, a noted conductor of Tchaikovsky and the Russian School, as well as romantic and impressionistic French music. This album, originally released in 1960, features selections from William Tell, Khovantchina, Aida, and Samson and Delilah, performed by the Paris Conservatoire Orchestra conducted by Fistoulari.


    Although this record isn't quite as dynamic as Witches Brew, it shares most of that disc's electrifying sound. Very lively midrange with superbly coherent staging, top rank clarity and deep, powerful and well-defined bass. Recorded by renowned Decca audio master Kenneth Wilkinson.

    S+@DIUM ROCK: Five Nights At The Opera

    In July of 2015, noted rock band Titus Andronicus [hereafter +@] made
    history, twice.


    The wider world shook upon the impact of The Most Lamentable Tragedy
    [hereafter TMLT], the triple-LP rock opera that immediately established itself
    as the most ambitious punk record of all time, a distinction challenged only
    by a foolish few.


    Meanwhile, in the hallowed halls of Shea Stadium, New York City's longestrunning
    active all-ages DIY space, +@ was doing the unthinkable again,
    becoming the first band in the history of NYC DIY to sell out five
    consecutive nights at the same venue. While these epic shows ostensibly
    served as a record-release celebration for TMLT (as well as an uproarious
    shindig for the 30th birthday of +@ singer-songwriter Patrick Stickles), they
    shattered the limits of mere promotional exercise and reached mythical status.
    Sadly for the wider world, you had to be there until now.


    +@ and their patient patrons at Merge Records are pleased to announce the
    new live LP, S+@DIUM ROCK: Five Nights at the Opera, a record which will
    allow fans everywhere their chance to relive the auspicious occasion from the
    comforts of their own home. +@'s position as the most thrilling live act in
    rock and roll has long been etched in stone, but never before has that
    riveting energy been captured on wax as it is here.


    The A-side to S+@DIUM ROCK revisits some of TMLT's most celebrated
    hits in a newly concise context, stripping away all studio wizardry until only
    the primal passion remains. The B-side offers fresh electric arrangements of
    the largely acoustic fifth act of TMLT's rock opera narrative, presenting a new
    perspective on the material Tiny Mix Tapes praised for "emotional intensity
    unrivaled anywhere in rock music," as well as debuting the previously
    unreleased TMLT outtake, "69 Stones." Taken as a whole, S+@DIUM ROCK
    is a whirlwind journey through a moment in time never to be repeated,
    preserved for future generations starving for "the real deal."

    A Night At The Opera (Awaiting Repress)

    Ranked 230/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Nothing succeeds like excess, at least that's the case with Queen's breakthrough classic, A Night At The Opera. On one level, the title is a reference to the band's operatic pretensions as evidenced here on the classic Bohemian Rhapsody. It also happens to be the title of a Marx Brothers movie, and the reference isn't lost on Queen, who seldom scaled the heights of pomprock without a knowing wink. The album is remembered for its meticulously produced bombast, but the truth is that there's a wide variety of material here, from the gorgeous piano-based You're My Best Friend and the McCartneyesque 39, to the music-hall-style Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon and the pedal-to-the-metal rockers Death on Two Legs and I'm in Love with My Car. A Night at the Opera is widely considered to be the quintessential Queen album and justifiably so.


    This fall marks Queens return to studio recording for the first time in 13 years, to commemorate that occasion, Universal has created the Queen on Vinyl Collectors Edition re-issue program in which every Queen studio album is to be released on vinyl LPs over the next two years. The original albums are being re-issued correct in every detail to the original releases, including inner sleeves, packaging and bonuses.

    An Acoustic Evening At The Vienna Opera House

    Import


    Joe Bonamassa: An Acoustic Evening at the Vienna Opera House was recorded at the historic Vienna Opera House last July during a very special two-week long unplugged tour, played to a limited audience over seven exclusive European shows. Varying from his predominantly electric blues shows, this presentation was an all-acoustic concert performance, making it a unique and very special show fans had been waiting years to experience.


    Produced by long-time collaborator Kevin Shirley, Joe is supported on his vintage acoustic instruments by an eclectic assortment of craftsmen from around the globe. They include: Gerry O'Connor, a music historian and traditional Irish fiddler from many generations of Irish music, on Irish fiddle, mandolin, and Irish banjo; Swedish multi-instrumentalist Mats Wester will play the Nyckelharpa, a Swedish keyed-fiddle; Los Angeles keyboard maestro Arlan Schierbaum, whose extensive recording career focuses on organic instruments, plays accordions, celeste, toy pianos, and more; and legendary Puerto Rican percussionist, Lenny Castro, whose works spans genres and reads like a who's who of artists, including the Rolling Stones, Sir Elton John, Eric Clapton, Boz Scaggs, Toto, Stevie Wonder, David Sanborn, Avenged Sevenfold, Little Feat, Tom Petty, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and many more.

    An Acoustic Evening At The Vienna Opera House

    Joe Bonamassa: An Acoustic Evening at the Vienna Opera House was recorded at the historic Vienna Opera House during a very special two-week long unplugged tour, played to a limited audience over seven exclusive European shows. Varying from his predominantly electric blues shows, this presentation was an all-acoustic concert performance, making it a unique and very special show fans had been waiting years to experience.



    Produced by long-time collaborator Kevin Shirley, Joe is supported on his vintage acoustic instruments by an eclectic assortment of craftsmen from around the globe. They include: Gerry O'Connor, a music historian and traditional Irish fiddler from many generations of Irish music, on Irish fiddle, mandolin, and Irish banjo; Swedish multi-instrumentalist Mats Wester will play the Nyckelharpa, a Swedish keyed-fiddle; Los Angeles keyboard maestro Arlan Schierbaum, whose extensive recording career focuses on organic instruments, plays accordions, celeste, toy pianos, and more; and legendary Puerto Rican percussionist, Lenny Castro, whose works spans genres and reads like a who's who of artists, including the Rolling Stones, Sir Elton John, Eric Clapton, Boz Scaggs, Toto, Stevie Wonder, David Sanborn, Avenged Sevenfold, Little Feat, Tom Petty, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and many more.

    Duets

    Famed opera singers Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazón collaborate again for their much anticipated Duets album. Already a platinum-seller internationally, this album is a collection of their favorite pieces from the world's most celebrated operas including La Bohème and RomÉo et Juliette. As a gift to one another, Anna and Rolando also sing in each other's native language with duets from Luisa Fernanda and Iolanta. This release coincides with the pair's engagement at New York's Metropolitan Opera in Gounod's RomÉo et Juliette from September-December, 2007. Netrebko and Villazón established themselves as the new operatic dream team when they sang in the Salzburg Festival production of Verdi's La Traviata in 2005 (their interpretations are preserved on Deutsche Grammophon CD and DVD). Since then, they have conquered the world's stages in Gounod's RomÉo et Juliette in Los Angeles, and Verdi's Rigoletto at New York's Metropolitan Opera (conducted by Plácido Domingo).

    In War & Peace: Harmony Through Music

    One of opera's most outspoken and impassioned personalities, Joyce DiDonato reminds us with her new album In War and Peace that music "soothes turmoil, threatens power and the status quo, and gloriously exalts the spirit". Her selection of arias demonstrates how powerfully Baroque opera explores the extremes of human nature - from the tumult of Handel's Scenes of Horror, Scenes of Woeto Purcell's descent into despair, Dido's Lament. Joyce's longtime partners, the spirited Italian Baroque ensemble Il Pomo d'Oro, join her on this unique journey through sublime, challenging music; through chaos transformed by the eternal search for serenity.

    Eternamente (Verismo Arias)

    For Eternamente, her first studio recording in six years, soprano Angela Gheorghiu focuses on Italian composers of the generation that followed Verdi and predominantly on repertoire she has not sung before - including some fascinating rarities. Joining her for duets from Mascagni Cavalleria Rusticana and Giordano's Andrea ChÉnieris another star of today's opera stage, tenor Joseph Calleja. Eternamente is described as a collection of verismo - the term used generically for Italian opera of the immediate post-Verdi era. No matter when they were composed, and no matter what their subject matter, all these operas demand great passion and commitment from their performers - and they get it from Angela Gheorghiu. "It is like my soul, it is something different, it is not the voice," she explained in an interview with Opera magazine. "The voice is also there, it has to be there, and it has had to be prepared - but at that moment of the performance, there is more. The response is never a conscious exaggeration - it is a natural expression. I am never pretending. It is just how I am at that moment." The character and impact of her voice were summarized thus in Gramophone: "With her smooth and dark-toned soprano, a voice at once powerfully firm and vulnerable, Gheorghiu stands out from an entire generation of talented singers. Her sound is convincingly Italianate in the great tradition; her voice, once heard, is never forgotten."

    Wagner: The Collector's Edition

    The 6-LP limited edition set includes landmark performances from Jessye Norman, Herbert von Karajan, Karl Böhm, Jess Thomas and more; a musthave
    for the dedicated Wagner collector.


    Richard Wagner was one of the most revolutionary figures in the history of music, a composer who made pivotal contributions to the development of harmony and musical drama that reverberate even today. Indeed, though Wagner occasionally produced successful music written on a relatively modest scale, opera -- the bigger, the better -- was clearly his milieu, and his aesthetic is perhaps the most grandiose that Western music has ever known. Early in his career, Wagner learned both the elements and the practical, political realities of his craft by writing a handful of operas which were unenthusiastically, even angrily, received. Beginning with Rienzi (1838-40) and The Flying Dutchman (1841), however, he enjoyed a string of successes that propelled him to immortality and changed the face of music. His monumental Ring cycle of four operas -- Das Rheingold (1853-54), Die WalkÜre (1854-56), Siegfried (1856-71) and GötterdÄmmerung (1869-74) -- remains the most ambitious and influential contribution by any composer to the opera literature. Tristan and Isolde (1857-59) is perhaps the most representative example of Wagner's musical style, which is characterized by a high degree of chromaticism, a restless, searching tonal instability, lush harmonies, and the association of specific musical elements (known as leitmotifs, the flexible manipulation of which is one of the glories of Wagner's music) with certain characters and plot points. Wagner wrote text as well as music for all his operas, which he preferred to call music dramas.
