What is more legitimate than the fourth centenary of Shakespeare's death in 1616, is an album of melodies whose texts or subjects are taken from the inexhaustible treasure chest that is the work of the Stratford bard: Of legend - Ophelia, Desdemona, Shylock -, famous tirades, without forgetting his unforgettable sonnets, for four centuries that composers seize them with eagerness. The mezzo Isabelle Druet and her pianist Anne Le Bozec have chosen a few great hits (Schubert, Fauré, Schumann, Brahms, Sibelius), but also several works by musicians less often tackled such as Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Korngold or Gurney whose production Is far, far from being negligible. Druet plays with her magnificent vocal range ranging from murmuring to explosion, from joy to despair, all in several languages of which she seems to master the pronunciations with great agility.

“Shakespeare has been a part of my life as a performer from the very start” says Ian Bostridge, “Britten's Midsummer Night's Dream and Ades's The Tempest have been milestones for me as a singer. It has been a great joy to rediscover the music in Shakespeare's incomparable texts and the music that has been written over the past four centuries toclothe them, from the simplest songs of his own contemporaries, through the melodic delights of the likes of Haydn, Britten and Finzi to the matchless complexity of the late Stravinsky. Working again with Tony Pappano has been a joy; and making my first recording with a long term musical partner, lutenist Liz Kenny, a particular pleasure.”

The art of Shakespeare was a recurring fascination for Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco. In addition to two operas and numerous settings of songs and sonnets, he wrote 11 Shakespeare Overtures which here receive their first ever complete recording. Deploying all the resources of the symphony orchestra, these are some of the twentieth century’s most dramatic and tuneful orchestral works, spectacular evocations of Shakespeare’s greatest plays.

Gustavo Dudamel, the “energetic ambassador for classical music” (Vanity Fair), conducts symphonic pieces derived from Shakespeare as re-imagined in music by Tchaikovsky. In every case, Dudamel elicits the most appropriate interpretations imaginable from his electrifying Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra. He conclusively demonstrates that in addition to being able to generate excitement, he is a sophisticated musical thinker.
