Bertolt Brecht - Vita di Galileo

Bertolt Brecht - Vita di Galileo
Italian | Einaudi | 2015 | ASIN: B016EDPW68 | 150 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Frutto di diverse stesure, quest'opera teatrale nasce negli anni che precedono immediatamente la Seconda guerra mondiale e che vedono sperimentare e utilizzare a fini bellici la scissione dell'atomo, gli anni in cui si compie definitivamente una paurosa frattura tra progresso tecnico e progresso sociale. La figura di Galileo, lo scienziato che con le sue rivoluzionarie intuizioni rischia di mettere a repentaglio gli equilibri teologici e sociali del suo tempo e che si piega alla ritrattazione per timore della tortura e per mancanza di agonismo eroico, è la metafora dello scienziato moderno, dell'intellettuale perseguitato dall'inesorabile binomio scienza-fanatismo…

Skeptikern sei garantiert: Weill wurde nicht verfälscht. Aber in der fetzigen Interpretation durch die Band, vor allem durch Horwitz´ markante und wandlungsfähige Stimme, durch seinen frechen Zugriff auf Text und Musik bekommen diese viel geliebten Songs etwas ungemein Heutiges (…) Zum Auftakt eine kurze Verbeugung vor dem Original (und) dann geht´s los – so rasant, so keß, gleichsam auch so sensibel und zart, insgesamt so unvorhersehbar, daß es einem mitunter scheint, als würde man etwa das Eifersuchtsduett oder das Lied der Seeräuberjenny zu ersten Mal hören.

"…In spite of Brecht’s often heavy-handedness, the opera has plenty of pertinent points to make today. The Blu-ray looks great, even in the many very dark scenes, and the impact of the lossless surround track is excellent. I find that of the three productions, I’ll stick with this one now, and not just because it’s Blu-ray. You may want to keep the English subtitles on the screen to appreciate the details of the lyrics, which are not always discernible. 5 Stars." ~audiophile-audition

Paul Dessau - In Memoriam Bertolt Brecht, Symphonies 1 and 2  Music

Paul Dessau - In Memoriam Bertolt Brecht, Symphonies 1 and 2

Paul Dessau - In Memoriam Bertolt Brecht, Symphonies 1 and 2
Classical | EAC: FLAC+Cue+Log | 1 Cd, Covers + Booklet | 394 Mb
Label: Capriccio - Date: 2009

Paul Dessau famously collaborated with Berthold Brecht, and his In memoriam Berthold Brecht is a skilled and moving orchestral work. It, and a number of his other pieces (two symphonies, orchestral songs), are excellently performed by soprano Ksenija Lukic, mezzo Manuela Bress, with pianist Holger Groschopp in Les Voix for soprano, piano and orchestra, with Roger Epple leading the German Symphony Orchestra of Berlin. The symphonies, dating from 1926 and 1934 (with a movement in memory of Bartók in Bulgarian rhythm added in 1962) are easy, if not fascinating, to listen to but not as memorable as the songs. Excellent sound.
