The Lyric Stage: August 6 - Der Rosenkavalier

Aug 6, 2017

In late 1995, engineers and producers sat down with Elisabeth Schwarzkopf  at the Abbey Road studios of EMI in London, to remaster her 1956 recording of Der Rosenkavalier for compact disc. The result is described as not just a re-mastering but a re-engineering of the performance originally supervised by Schwarzkopf's husband Walter Legge, and it is always mentioned as one of the best recordings of Rosenkavalier available. This week week on the Lyric Stage we have selections from that recording.

This week on Well-Tempered Baroque, Dr. Lewis Baratz discusses new releases of Baroque music on the Brilliant Classics label.  Selections from the new 16-CD set of the complete keyboard music of Johann Jacob Froberger, chamber music of Alessandro Stradella, motets of Giovanni Paolo Colonna, music of John Ravenscroft, and sacred music of Antonio Caldara.

The Tournai Mass (late 13th-mid 14th centuries)  is the first complete mass that we know of, that is, the first mass with a fixed ordinary. although each movement was composed by a different anonymous scribe. A performance by the Trio Mediaeval. There are also several ricercari and salterelli  by Giovanni Maria da Crema  (mid 16th century) from his 1546 book of lute pieces, featuring lutenist Christopher Wilson. And we'll conclude with music written by Henry VIII of England, the suite "Rose without a Thorn" which he wrote while wooing Anne Boleyn.
