Renee Fleming, Sacred Songs

This lovely CD features Renee Fleming singing religious music in an unaffected, lovely manner. Many favorites are here: both the Bach/Gounod and Schubert versions of "Ave Maria," each offered with long breaths and soft tone; "Rejoice Greatly" from Messiah, delivered with virtuosity and gleaming sound, and "He Shall Feed His Flock," also from Messiah, sung in a smooth, laid-back manner. Bits of the Faure Requiem and Poulenc Gloria are welcome, as is the gorgeous "L'Adieu des Bergers" from L'Enfance du Christ. In the prayer from Humperdinck's Hansel und Gretel, Fleming is joined by the splendid Susan Graham, and a version of "Amazing Grace" features Mark O'Connor on violin. Two excerpts from Mozart's Mass in C Minor, pieces by Reger and Franck, and a few surprises round out this devotional CD. --Robert Levine

Wait Me, My Bird Love Sung Poetry and Instrumental Pieces in the 17th Century Hungarian Courts Most part of the Hungarian love song poetry of the 17th century was composed by anonymous authors. The poems that show either Renaissance o Barocque influence can be found today in manuscripts of songbooks – among them in the Songbook from Vasarhely (Vasarhelyi daloskonyv; after 1672) and in the Songbook of Gyorgy Szentsei from Transdanubia (1704). They were popular, first of all, in the aristocratic circles, because even the well-known songs were not printed in that period, only during the 18th century; they became national treasure and part of the poetry tradition. Although originally these poems were passed from one person to another, and the copies of the manuscripts often changed their texts, they had a great influence on the poets of that age (Pal Esterhazy, gr. Balint Balassa, Istvan Gyongyosi, Miklos Zrinyi etc.), and then in the 18th century on the folk poetry, as well. We picked from this rich offer a bouquet in our line-up – the metaphor is not a coincidence, since these songs might have been called also ‘flower songs’, although none of them carries a title like that. It is important beyond the flower symbols, the subtle grid of bird motifs (falcon, swan, thrush, etc.), the appearence of mythological characters and the honesty of the words about faith (happyness and sadness, separtion and encounter). The melodies of songs and the intrumental pieces (among them) originate from the Hungarian sources of the 17th century and from Turkish and Polish manuscripts. With their common presentation we would like to show the special mingle of the musical fashion of the Central Europe where the late Renaissance, Baroque and oriental motifs completed eachother. Some of the melodies were preserved in the Hungarian and Slovakian folks music (Moldavia, Felcsik, Zobor Region), but they fit in the melodies that we know from the notes of the 17th century.

Day 286: Lucky
Day 286: Lucky
October 14, 2011 I wish people would realize how truly lucky they are. I know, I fall into the trap of "why this, why that, why me?" and I know I complain too much (especially to my wonderful friend Maris, who is always there to hear me out and vise versa) - but I do realize what I have, and how lucky I am. I started out last year with a completely different look on my life here at my school. Those of you who don't know, I am extremely orchestra-minded. I play cello, and orchestra is the one place I feel like I've always been my happiest - making one collaborative massive piece of music with 100 other people. 100 other people all playing different parts - but by some genius of the composer - it comes together beautifully. It's crazy. I couldn't be in a better place right now. I couldn't. I can't even tell you the list of amazing opportunities I've been able to partake in here with the orchestra... it's unreal. Not only that, but I have support - considering how long it took me to realize that or not - it's there. I just have to take it, work with it, work on myself, push myself, do something. Not everyone realizes the great opportunites they have. How lucky they really are... and I wish they would. I feel like I've done a lot in the past week - as far as building myself up mentally. It's kind of nice. We had our rehersal with Maestro Lockhart tonight - it was a lot of fun, and I still can't get over how relaxed he was with us and his sense of humor about things. It was great. And tomorrow? Our concert with Boston Pops - craziness. I am so lucky. Life is Good. P.S. Shooting selfies with a remote is so much easier. :). +1 B/W Edit in Comments.

Elgar: Cello Concerto / Sea Pictures
This is rightly regarded as the finest recording of Elgar's attractive and elegiac Cello Concerto. It's held in almost irrationally high esteem in the UK, largely because of the universal affection for Jacqueline Du Pre, the wife of Daniel Barenboim, whose early death from multiple sclerosis cut short what would have been a stellar career. This disc is equally noteworthy for Janet Baker's magnificent singing of the Sea Pictures, the composer's only orchestral song cycle. It's not Elgar's fault if the tune of the last song sounds like an excessively inflated version of "Hello, Dolly!" A classic then, even if neither work is a raging masterpiece. --David Hurwitz
