Mozart - Zaide, K. 344
PG01:51:002008HD
Mozart left his Singspiel Zaide unfinished, but its wonderful music is most definitely still worth performing. And which director is better suited to staging this tale of slavery and love than Peter Sellars, who is famous for the tremendous passion with which he confronts political and intercultural questions in his productions and interprets classical operas in altogether convincing ways? “In Zaide”, Sellars insists, “Mozart was attempting to construct a musical and dramatic bridge between Europe and the Muslim world, replacing the ‘menace’ perceived on both sides with mercy and compassion.” In this 2008 concert from the Aix-en-Provence Festival, the Camerata Salzburg performs the diamond in the rough under the baton of conductor Louis Langrée, accompanied by the Choir Ibn Zaïdoun and several wonderful soloists.

Nelsons and Opolais perform Dvořák
G01:44:002017HD
Andris Nelsons, together with his then-wife, the great soprano Kristine Opolais and the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig present a program dedicated to Antonin Dvořák, singing the melodies that the composer hid in all layers of his music with tender, warm, soft colors. Nelsons’ tempos remain calm and relaxed, allowing the omnipresent beauty of Dvořák’s music to unfold and flood the Gewandhaus. The program opens with Othello, a Concert Overture for Orchestra, Op. 93. Opolais performs “Song to the Moon” from Rusalka, “Songs my Mother Taught Me” from Gypsy Songs, Op. 55/4.

Mahler - Symphony No. 4
G01:03:002006HD
The program is introduced with a short documentation about Schönberg's Pelleas et Melisande, based on a text by Claudio Abbado. Every musical theme relates to a special colour appearing on screen. What has been so remarkable about Abbado’s Mahler performances is that their impact has never been achieved at the expense of the multiple sensitivities, subtleties and extreme sophistication. Together with the world's leading youth orchestra – the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester (GMJO) – Abbado performs Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 and Schönberg’s Pelleas und Melisande, Op. 5. The Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester was founded in Vienna in 1986, by Abbado’s initiative. The orchestra's high level of artistic quality and its international success have moved important conductors and soloists to work with the ensemble.

Schumann - Piano Quartet, Op. 47
G01:01:002012HD
The Ébène Quartet, consisting of Daishin Kashimoto (violin), Lise Berthaud (viola), François Salque (cello), and Eric Le Sage (piano), performs Robert Schumann's Piano Quartet, Op. 47.

It is perhaps the most frequently performed piano quartets in the repertoire. The work was composed during Schumann’s “Chamber Music Year,” in which he concentrated a whole year on the genre, writing three string quartets and a piano quintet in addition to this piano quartet. This performance is recorded at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk, Denmark.

In an accompanying interview, Montero speaks about composing, improvising, and performing works of her own alongside those of others. She discusses her home country of Venezuela, where she no longer performs for political reasons.

Brahms - Ein deutsches Requiem (2 piano's)
G01:06:002007HD
Johannes Brahms’ ‘Ein deutsches Requiem’ is known for its secular focus; it is not aimed at God or the afterlife, but at comforting the bereaved in the here and now. Therefore Brahms steered clear of the common Latin texts, rather, he selected passages from the Old and New Testaments in Martin Luther’s German translation. In combination with the wonderful music, the piece resulted in one of the most touching Requiems ever written. This broadcast was recorded by the Flemish Radio Choir accompanied by two pianos.

Villa-Lobos - String Quartet No. 9
G00:33:002018HD
Quarteto Radamés Gnattali performs Heitor Villa-Lobos's String Quartet No. 9 at the Theatro Municipal in Rio de Janiero, Brasil. The ensemble was founded in 2006 and consists of Carla Rincón and Francisco Roa (violins), Fernando Thebaldi (viola), and Hugo Pilger (cello). The quartet, which specializes in Brazilian music, focuses on educational activities. Their recording of all of Villa-Lobos string quartets is a major achievement and was very well received by international music critics. Except for his Bachianas brasileiras, the performance of many of the Brazilian's compositions is limited to Latin America. Highly regarded as a composer, conductor and educator in his native country, Villa-Lobos has operas, symphonies, concertos, piano repertoire, choral music, and seventeen string quartets to his credit.

Bach - Sonata No. 1 BWV 1014
G00:50:002009HD
This Sonata for Violin and Harpsichord No. 1 BWV 1014 is the first of the set of sonatas Johann Sebastian Bach composed before 1725, probably during his time as chapel master in Köthen. Presumably, he wrote these sonatas for Prince Leopold and later adapted them for further use in Leipzig. Maybe this is why these pieces are well playable for amateurs, while every sonata still has the finesse that can offer a challenge to professional musicians. The different pieces are meant to be a set, just like the Brandenburg concertos.
