  • Rossini: Semiramide [1991] Rossini: Semiramide | DVD | (31/12/2007) from £50.20  |  Saving you £-15.21 (-43.50%)  |  RRP £34.99

    Bel canto can be translated as "pretty singing", and that definition seems tailor-made for this production, which offers grace, charm, and a fine-tuned sense of style in abundance to compensate for its limited psychological and emotional impact. The four principal singers are all specialists in the bel canto style and this opera has played a key role in building their substantial reputations. For its sweeping musical imagination and technical wizardry, Rossini's epic about royal assassination and misdirected lust in the ancient Babylonian Empire deserves a place in any inclusive opera collection, and we are not likely to have a better video recording of Semiramide in the foreseeable future. June Anderson has an attractive appearance and sounds exactly right in the music's florid melodic lines. But she is not dramatically compelling as the wicked queen who had her husband killed and fell in love with a man who turned out to be her long-lost son, Arsace. Marilyn Horne rose to the highest levels of international fame in the role of that conflicted son, and her presence alone would be enough to give this video classic status. Her voice was a bit past its prime when this performance was recorded in 1991, but still there is no other voice quite like it, no other voice so suited to Rossini's heroic mezzo roles. Samuel Ramey is a close bass counterpart to Anderson: great tone, agile florid singing, and a rather wooden but visually appealing stage presence. Sanford Olsen has a small role and sings it near perfectly. James Conlon gets excellent musical results; John Copley's staging is massive and static. --Joe McLellan, Amazon.com

    This legendary Bayreuth Festival production of Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen directed by Harry Kupfer with designs by Hans Schavernoch and conducted by Daniel Barenboim is considered perhaps the finest video recording of these four operas ever made.

Barenboim's authoritative yet highly responsive reading of the immense score and the extraordinary performances of the cast help to make this a truly memorable Ring.

    By 1978 Leonard Cohen had already produced a staggering body of work that had firmly set the standard for the singer-songwriter genre and contained numerous classic songs within its cannon. If like many of his contemporaries his muse had abandoned him around this time he would still today be regarded as a genius. But the 6 studio albums released between then and 2006 contained some of the finest work of Cohens entire career and on tracks such as First We Take Manhattan Dance Me To The End Of Love The Future I'm Your Man Ain't No Cure For Love Tower Of Song and so many others he augmented his music with a philosophy wisdom and enlightenment that both delighted his existing fanbase and endeared him to new generations in a manner that few others could hope to achieve. This film mixes rare performance footage studio recordings interviews rarely seen photographs location shoots and many other features with contributions from some of Cohens closest colleagues and from experts on his life and music. Featuring his official biographer Ira Nadel; Cohen producers John Lissauer David Gold and John Simon journalists Robert Christgau [Village Voice] Anthony De Curtis [Rolling Stone] and Nigel Williamson [Uncut] authors Johnny Rogan and Jim Devlin and many others.
