This recording presents–almost–Berlioz's original thoughts on this very complicated opera (which went through more than a dozen versions, with additions and subtractions, in the composer's lifetime), although conductor John Nelson also adds an aria or two Berlioz later added, making it somewhat different from the version recorded by Philips under Sir Colin Davis a little over 30 years ago. If I had to choose one of these two superb performances, it would be this: the opera's odd rhythms are more strongly underlined by Nelson, the whole work seems more lively, and the comic moments are genuinely funny. And the singing is superb, with Patrizia Ciofi a simply great, light-toned Teresa, Gregory Kunde tackling the title role and singing as impressively as Gedda did for Davis, and Joyce di Donato singing Ascanio's music as well as you'll ever hear it. The darker-voiced roles are equally well taken, with Laurent Naouri's Balducci particularly vivid. The orchestral playing, choral singing, and ensemble work and sonics are first rate. This is a superb recording, presenting Berlioz's odd masterwork brilliantly.

Una tempesta senza precedenti si abbatte sulla capitale con ferocia inaudita. Quando un fulmine colpisce una delle centrali elettriche, alle autorità non resta che imporre un blackout totale di ventiquattro ore, per riparare l’avaria.
Le ombre tornano a invadere Roma. Sono passati cinque secoli dalla misteriosa bolla di papa Leone X secondo cui la città non avrebbe «mai mai mai» dovuto rimanere al buio.
Nel caos e nel panico che segue, un’ombra più scura di ogni altra si muove silenziosa per la città lasciando una scia di morti… e di indizi…

Teodorico Pedrini is the only 18th century composer of which we know that he wrote European music in China, where he arrived after an eight year long journey from Italy to the Canary Island, Chile, Mexico, Peru and the Philippines. After his arrival in Beijing in 1711, he worked for the emperors Kangxi, Yongzheng and Qianlong until his death in 1746. Until today, he has been appreciated as one of the most important cultural ambassadors for Western music in Asia of all times.

Joyce/Foucault: Sexual Confessions

Joyce/Foucault: Sexual Confessions by Wolfgang Streit
English | Dec. 8, 2004 | ISBN: 0472110004 | 239 Pages | PDF | 23 MB

Sheds new light on James Joyce's use of sexual motifs as cultural raw material for Ulysses and other works
Joyce/Foucault: Sexual Confessions examines instances of sexual confession in works of James Joyce, with a special emphasis on Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Ulysses. Using Michel Foucault's historical analysis of Western sexuality as its theoretical underpinning, the book foregrounds the role of the Jesuit order in the spread of a confessional force, and finds this influence inscribed into Joyce's major texts.

“Perhaps my most personal project to date,” is how American mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato describes In War and Peace: Harmony through Music. Her ambitions for this collection of arias from Baroque operas are substantial. Surrounded as we are by instability, she hopes it will help us find an answer to a vitally important question: “In the midst of chaos, how do you find peace?”

One of opera’s most outspoken and impassioned personalities, Joyce DiDonato reminds us with her new albumIn War and Peacethat music “soothes turmoil, threatens power and the status quo, and gloriously exalts the spirit”. Her selection of arias demonstrates how powerfully Baroque opera explores the extremes of human nature – from the tumult of Handel’sScenes of Horror, Scenes of Woeto Purcell’s descent into despair,Dido’s Lament.Joyce’s longtime partners, the spirited Italian Baroque ensemble Il Pomo d’Oro, join her on this unique journey through sublime, challenging music; through chaos transformed by the eternal search for serenity.
