This recording presents three different, utterly contrasting responses to the quest for expression and the solution to the old problem of how to merge text and music into a unity. The common theme linking these compositions, 'The Passion and Pains of Love', has been wrested from the texts of these choral works: they are poetic declarations of love, descriptions of nature with erotic and intimate imagery, poems that speak of unfulfilled yearning and breaking hearts. Their poetic quality opens a range of expression every bit as varied as the three musical settings they stimulated.

This beloved operetta, which takes place during Carnival celebrations in 18th-century in Venice, shows Strauss's descriptive writing at its best, helped by his love of Italy. Eine Nacht in Venedig inspired Strauss to compose some of his most successful operetta-music. The Italian atmosphere, the sun, the sea and the Venetian way of life appealed to his creative imagination

The stellar cast includes such eminent singer as Anton de Ridder, Sylvia Geszty, Julia Migenes and Trudeliese Schmiedt; Kurt Eichhorn conducts the Münchner Rundfunkorchester

This film-production from 1973 was made by the well known Czech conductor and stage director Vaclav Kaslik


Among other songs in this operetta, two in particular immediately come to the music-lover´s mind: the infatuating yearning “Komm in die Gondel mein Liebchen” and the captivating waltz “Ach wie so herrlich zu schauen sind all die reizenden Frauen”
Subtitles: German (original language - sung texts only) English

Count Imre Széchényi of Sárvár-Felsovidék moved in the highest echelons of the Austrian diplomatic service, in a career that ran parallel with his musical activities. Széchényi's dances, all but three of which were composed in St Petersburg, were popular in his day, and of a quality that saw them placed in concert programmes by his friend Johann Strauss II. Appearing here in their premiere recordings, they reveal a brilliant collection of mazurkas and polkas with a keen sense of humour and deep feeling in their arching musical brush strokes and romantic melodies.

This is a star-led performance of one of the most popular romantic operas with the unrivalled pairing of Fleming and Hvorostovsky as the doomed lovers. Their onstage chemistry, emotional singing and outstanding acting make this a truly special and unique production. Thousands of movie-goers watched this production live in cinemas across Europe and the US in February 2007, when the production and the singing of the central characters met with great critical acclaim.

Valery Gergiev, Russia's greatest living conductor, leads Russia's classic opera, with a thrilling account of Tchaikovsky's most intense and passionate score.

Robert Carsen, described in the International Herald Tribune as 'one of the most sought-after stage directors on the operatic scene' creates an evocative and striking staging. Anne Midgette, reviewing this production in the New York Times, wrote, 'this remains one of the most extraordinarily beautiful stagings I've seen.'

Staged by Stefan Herheim

Former Music Director Mariss Jansons returns to Amsterdam to conduct Pique Dame at the Dutch National Opera with 'his' Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. He encounters a noteworthy cast and under his baton the orchestra sounds 'brilliant and splendid' (Der Tagesspiegel). Renowned director Stefan Herheim staged Tchaikovsky's much-loved opera about a young man who, for the prospect of earthly wealth, gambles away his chance for love and happiness. Herheim, whose stagings are famous for their multi-layered levels of interpretation, attempts to reflect on the composer's contested sexuality. 'The Latvian maestro, the intriguingly performing orchestra, the smartly-chosen soloists, and director Stefan Herheim have succeeded in staging an extraordinary production' (Die Presse). 'Stefan Herheim makes a great picture show out of Tchaikovsky's 'Pique Dame'' (NMZ). 'A masterpiece' (Der Standard).
