  • Live from Berlin

    Daniel Barenboim & West-Eastern Divan Orchestra

    Year: 2006

    Runtime: 1 hr 59 min

    A miracle, one would in light of the middle East conflicts believe: the worldwide respected West Eastern Divan Orchestra is made up of young musicians from countries that are engaged in war. The orchestra with youngsters from Israel, Palestine, Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, and Spain was formed in 1999 in Weimar. In the following years there have been concerts among others in Berlin, Seville, Rabat, and in summer of 2005 even in Ramallah - a hotspot in the middle east conflict.

    A highlight of the summer tour 2006 was the performance of Beethoven's 9th Symphony conducted by Daniel Barenboim featuring star singers including Anglika Denoke and Burkhardt Fritz as well as Waltraud Meier and René Pape. The proceeds from this benefit concert will go to the Fundacion Barenboilm-Said and their music education programs in the Palestinian territories.

  • Haydn - 7 Last Words

    Various Artists

    Year: 2011

    Runtime: 1 hr 8 min

    Haydn's Seven Last Words of Our Saviour on the Cross was recognised throughout Europe as a masterpiece when it was premiered in the church of Santa Cueva, Cadiz in 1796. Haydn himself thought it was the best piece of music he ever wrote, and it established his fame in Europe and beyond. Paradoxically, the first version for orchestra, the most famous in Haydn's era, is the least known today.
    Now, for the first time, the work has been recorded in its original setting using the original orchestral score, which has only been available in a modern edition since 1962. This historic television recording is performed by Le Concert des Nations under the baton of Jordi Savall, one of Europe’s leading exponents of period music. The performance is enhanced by specially shot footage from the Holy Week processions which take place in Cadiz every Easter.
    Shot in HD, in the setting where the work was commissioned, the city of Cádiz, the performance is available in two versions - music only, or also containing stunning images from the Holy Week processions in Cadiz & readings of the Seven Last Words by a priest.

  • Beethoven: Piano Concerto No.2

    Various Artists

    Year: 2011

    Runtime: 35 min

    In time for his 65th birthday in 2007, Daniel Barenboim has completed a cycle of Beethoven's
    piano concertos. Recorded live at the prestigious Klavier-Festival Ruhr in May 2007, this
    recording reflects both a very individual and special reading of Beethoven’s music and the
    artist’s life-long dedication to the composer. Daniel Barenboim is one of the most prolific and
    high-profile artists performing on international stages today and Beethoven’s masterpieces
    have been a key part of his repertoire throughout his career, both as conductor and as pianist.
    Beethoven himself was a keyboard virtuoso of almost awesome abilities who created a
    sensation wherever he played. It is no wonder, therefore, that the piano was central to
    Beethoven’s overall output. Daniel Barenboim, artistic personality and former wunderkind,
    long an essential part of the international musical scene both on the conductor’s podium and
    at the piano, is the perfect match for this demanding music. Conducting and playing at the
    same time, Barenboim chose his orchestra of almost two decades, the Staatskapelle Berlin,
    which he has praised warmly for its exceptional, dark and warm sound. With a tradition
    reaching back to 1570, the Staatskapelle Berlin is one of the oldest orchestras in the world.
    Barenboim plays Beethoven brings together two musical masterminds.

  • Mozart: The Great Mass

    Uwe Scholz

    Year: 2005

    Runtime: 2 hr 16 min

    Uwe Scholz, ballet director in Leipzig, was hailed as one of the most brilliant choreographic minds of his generation when he died in November 2004 at the early age of 45. His ballet “The Great Mass” is one of the most impressive works of this important neoclassical Choreographer - a requiem, a choreographic revelation and certainly his grand legacy to the Leipzig ballet. The full length Choreography, here recorded at the Leipzig Opera in a performance in June 2005, takes its name from Mozart's famous unfinished Mass in C minor. It absorbs the structure of the liturgy of the mass and adds other works by Mozart as well as passages of Gregorian chant, and sequences from contemporary music by György Kurtág, Thomas Jahn and Arvo Pärt and readings of poems by Paul Celan. Internationally famous soloists from the Leipzig Ballet, among them Kiyoko Kimura, Christoph Böhm and Oksana Kulchytska, take on the leading roles and the staging proves the ensemble to be one of the best ballet companies worldwide.
