Claudio Abbado (1933–2014) R.I.P.

– entartetemusik.blogspot.com

Claudio Abbado (1933–2014) R.I.P.The Italian conductor Claudio Abbado has died at the age of 80. He had been suffering from cancer for a number of years. One of the finest musicians of recent decades, Abbado was equally at home in Mozart, Mahler or Musorgsky, directing consistent benchmark performances, whether live or on disc. I cherished his Viennese DG recording of Pelléas et Mélisande throughout my late teens, I first heard him live conducting a revelatory performance in 2002 of Bartók, Ravel and Debussy with Martha Argerich and the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester – an orchestra founded by Abbado in 1986 – and have recently bowed down to his peerless interpretation of Mahler 9 from the Lucerne Festival and his exemplary conducting of Beethoven and Berg’s Violin Concertos with Isabelle Faust…

It is always exciting to see a long-vanished work of music live again, especially an opera that comes back to life on the stage. This is what Opera Lafayette does, in earlier years in concert performance and lately on the stage of the Kennedy Center Terrace Theater and other venues. In many cases, the thrill of seeing the revival is where it ends, with the rediscovery of a work that one feels

A Song at Midnight 1937

– classical-iconoclast.blogspot.com

A Song at Midnight 1937A Song at Midnight has cult status in Chinese cinema. Although the film compares to Lon Chaney’s The Phantom of the Opera (1925), the music and the socio-political context lift it above the level of ordinary horror story.  A Song at Midnight (夜半歌聲) is usually billed as the first Chinese horror movie, but that’s not what makes it really interesting…
