This recording of Bruckner's Eighth Symphony is from Sir John Barbirolli's last London concert, some 10 weeks before his death, when the conductor knew heart problems might overtake him at any time. What better way to say goodbye than with one of the greatest symphonies ever written? And this craggy, towering masterpiece is given as urgent a performance as you'll ever hear (complemented by vivid recorded sound).

The music of Brahms held an important place in Sir John Barbirolli's repertoire and these recordings of the symphonies, made with the Vienna Philharmonic in 1966 and 1967, stand as one of the peaks of his discography. Barbirolli's relationship with this music is rooted in his time as an orchestral cellist, and these performances are notable for their rich, ripe sonorities and expansive warmth. This Japanese SACD reissue features the 2011's EMI Remaster.

Il Trittico, Turandot, and Puccini's Late Style

Il Trittico, Turandot, and Puccini's Late Style (Musical Meaning and Interpretation) by Andrew Davis
English | Sep 9, 2010 | ISBN: 0253355141 | 328 Pages | PDF | 4 MB

Giacomo Puccini is one of the most frequently performed and best loved of all operatic composers. In Il Trittico, Turandot, and Puccini's Late Style, Andrew Davis takes on the subject of Puccini's last two works to better understand how the composer creates meaning through the juxtaposition of the conventional and the unfamiliar—situating Puccini in past operatic traditions and modern European musical theater.

"This Grammy winner, one of the most successful versions of Puccini's final opera, offers Nilsson's first recording of the title character, and Bjoerling's last operatic portrayal on disc, including a heroic, for-the-ages "Nessun dorma". The extraordinary orchestration, befitting a story set in ancient China, benefits from the new DSD remastering."
