Schoenberg Gurrelieder

Gurrelieder

Hedwig's Cathedral Choir Period: 20th Century Written: 1900-1911; Vienna, Austria. Rather than limiting himself to a list of themes in a loose aphoristic form, Berg provided a deep and comprehensive account of the music in which themes were presented in all of their developmental, variational, formal aspects, with extensive information about harmony, tonal plan, counterpoint, and orchestration and with absolutely no poetic language or hermeneutics. Wie zwei Ströme waren ihre Gedanken, Ströme gleitend Seit' an Seite. The setting for the Gurre-Lieder is the 12th-century Gurre Castle in the Danish province of Zealand, approximately five kilometres west of HelsingÞr Elsinore on Lake Gurre. Ach, war das licht und hell! Waldemars Mannen: Der Hahn erhebt den Kopf zur Kraht, hat den Tag schon im Schnabel, und von unsern Schwertern trieft rostgerötet der Morgentau.

Arnold Schoenberg, Gurrelieder:: Guide

Gurrelieder

It was probably Zemlinsky who introduced his friend and pupil Arnold Schoenberg to the works of the Danish poet. So laß uns die goldene Schale leeren ihm, dem mĂ€chtig verschönenden Tod. Wild starrte des Königs Auge, suchte nach einem Blick, seltsam lauschte des Königs Herz nach einem Wort. Zuletzt vor die TĂŒr noch Stahl und Stein, so kann mir nichts Böses zur TĂŒr herein. Bauer: Deckel des Sarges klappert und klappt, Schwer kommt's her durch die Nacht getrabt. Together with Chailly's alertness my listening notes hardly ever remark that he is faster in this or that section than Ozawa, yet he is the swifter by ten minutes overall this makes for a Gurrelieder which is much more of a drama, much less of a distended song-cycle than usual.

Schoenberg: Gurrelieder / Abbado · Berliner Philharmoniker

Gurrelieder

Es ist so still in mir, so seltsam stille. Waldemar: Mit Toves Stimme flĂŒstert der Wald, mit Toves Augen schaut der See, mit Toves LĂ€cheln leuchten die Sterne, die Wolke schwillt wie des Busens Schnee. Wer gab der nackten Wahrheit Kleider? Vom stranglosen Bogen Pfeile zu senden, mit hohlen Augen und KnochenhĂ€nden, zu treffen des Hirsches Schattengebild, daß Wiesentau aus der Wunde quillt. His combined vision and audacity have earned him respect, both in the Netherlands and far beyond its borders, as both the Director of Dutch National Opera and as a stage director. Das sind nicht Wolken, die den Himmel schmĂŒcken, und Tal und HĂŒgel nicht der Erde RĂŒcken, und Form und Farbenspiel, nur eitle SchĂ€ume, und alles Abglanz nur der GottestrĂ€ume. Wer war dafĂŒr geprĂŒgelt leider? Und ich tausch' auch nicht ihren Mauerwall und den Schatz, den treu sie bewahren, fĂŒr Himmelreichs Glanz und betĂ€ubenden Schall und alle der heiligen Schaaren! Die leuchtenden Sterne am Himmel droben bleichen wohl, wenn's graut, doch lodern sie neu jede Mitternachtzeit in ewiger Pracht.

Sinopoli takes 12 minutes longer over the piece than Chailly. Was mag der Wind nur wollen? Nein, ich seh's, es flieht der Weg hurtig unter der Hufe Tritten. Zwar ist mein SĂŒndenregister groß, allein vom meisten schwatz ich mich los! The Chorus of Dutch National Opera is joined by the KammerChor des ChorForum Essen. So is Thomas Moser, sometimes a stalwartly baritonal Waldemar, once or twice a little unsteady, but with ringing, heroic top notes. Yes, I suppose Deborah Voigt is less than ideal: her voice is bright, vibrant, fearless in ff and in the upper register, but needing hard work to fine it down to really expressive, quiet singing. The short score of Part I, written on three staves and supplied with notes on instrumentation, is dated March and April 1900. Die Glieder noch bekreuz ich klug, wo der Herr seine heiligen Wunden trug, so bin ich geschĂŒtzt vor der nĂ€chtlichen Mahr, vor Elfenschuß und Trolls Gefahr.

Weit flog ich, Klage sucht' ich, fand gar viel! Christof Hetzer designs both sets and costumes, and works in leading European theatres with directors like Hans Neuenfels, Jan Philipp Gloger, David Hermann and Stefan Herheim. Weit flog ich, Klage sucht' ich, fand gar viel! But when she does work hard not always, but often enough she is impressive. He studied piano, organ, singing and music education at Cologne University of Music and the Mozarteum University in Salzburg. Herrgott, ich bin auch ein Herrscher, und es ist mein Herrscherglauben: Meinem Untertanen darf ich nie die letzte Leuchte rauben. So kurz ist der Tod, wie ruhiger Schlummer von DĂ€mm'rung zu DĂ€mmrung.

Gurrelieder

Paul Chamber Orchestra, the Philadelphia and Cleveland Orchestras, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks. In recent seasons, Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra has had great success with audiences and international press alike, with productions including Gurre-Lieder, Lohengrin, Der Rosenkavalier, Il Trovatore and HĂ€nsel und Gretel. Stephen Gould studied at the New England Conservatory of Music and completed his vocal training at the Lyric Opera of Chicago Center for American Artists. I haven't heard the role of Waldemar better sung. Eh' der Laut, der jetzo klinget, ruht, um nimmermehr zu tönen, muß dein flinker Hufschlag, Renner, ĂŒber Gurres BrĂŒcke dröhnen; eh' das welke Blatt - dort schwebt es -, mag herab zum Bache fallen, muß in Gurres Hof dein Wiehern fröhlich widerhallen! Driven to near madness by grief over the loss of his beloved, the king curses God. TrĂ€nen, die sie nicht weinen wollte, funkelten im Auge.

Denn mir ist's, als schlĂŒg' in meiner Brust deines Herzens Schlag, und als höbe mein Atemschlag, Tove, deinen Busen. Tove, bist du's, mit Zaubermacht gefesselt an Sees- und Waldespracht? I feel instinctively that Dunn's purer, cooler voice is more right for the role of Tove than Norman's mezzo-like opulence, despite a couple of awkward corners she scoops through a difficult interval in her third song but Norman's ample richness, her vibrancy and sheer presence are undeniably more exciting, and Philips's recording highlights her most glamorously. Zur trĂ€umeschwangern Ruh' Oh, könnten in Frieden wir schlafen! Der König öffnet Toves Sarg, starrt und lauscht mit bebenden Lippen, Tove ist stumm! The latter is gruffly baritonal, tends to yelp under pressure and sings reliably but seldom quietly, whereas Jerusalem has the virtues both of a lyric and a dramatic tenor: a beautifully sustained line, coloured by sensitive care for words, but with the ability to open out to an impressive vehemence where needed. Rasen nieder vom HĂŒgel rollt, ĂŒber den GrĂŒften klingt's hell wie Gold! They are also rather forward in the 'new' Decca version, but within a much more palpable space, allowing one to focus on instrumental details. Gemischter Chor: Seht die Sonne farbenfroh am Himmelssaum östlich grĂŒĂŸt ihr Morgentraum. He directs the Netherlands Philharmonic with gossamer transparency, never losing the narrative thread, shaping the whole with an arresting combination of vision and modesty.

A nightmarish scene follows, of a fierce army killed in battle, which rampages like a horde of ghosts. His repertoire includes Basilio Le nozze di Figaro and Monostatos Die Zauberflöte , Schuysky Boris Godunov and Valzacchi Der Rosenkavalier. Es jagen die Sinne, sie zu fassen, Gedanken kĂ€mpfennach ihrem Bilde. On the contrary, it is self-evident that ten years later I would orchestrate differently. Triebst mich aus der letzten Freistatt, die ich meinem GlĂŒck erwarb! What started out as a modest song-cycle grew into one of the most opulent musical giants of the 20th century — a cantata of Wagnerian ambition and proportions. Michael Stegemann Translation: Phyllis Anderson The Scottish mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill studied in Glasgow, Toronto and London and was joint winner of the Kathleen Ferrier Award in 2002.

Simon Rattle conducts Schoenberg’s Gurre

Gurrelieder

He added large choruses, a melodrama, preludes and interludes, all of it scored for a huge orchestra. Aber Tove ist hier und Tove ist da, Tove ist fern und Tove ist nah. Hier ist das Schloß, wie einst vor Zeiten! As of 1 January 2013 he has become Director of Dutch National Opera. Arnold Publisher: Oxford University Press This chapter presents a translation of Berg's Guide to Schoenberg's massive cantata Gurrelieder. Denn wir gehn zu Grab wie ein LĂ€cheln, ersterbend im seligen Kuß. Given the eminence of the performers assembled for this recording, this is a particularly disappointing reading of 's Gurrelieder.

Gurrelieder

Der Schatten dehnt sich, der Ton verklingt, nun falle, Blatt, magst untergehn: Volmer hat Tove gesehn! Tönend rieselt der Tau zu Tal, Sterne schießen und schwinden zumal; flĂŒchtend durchraschelt der Falter die Hecken, springen die Frösche nach feuchten Verstecken. But Schoenberg composed the entire Jacobsen cycle nonetheless — but no longer for one voice alone. Burkhard Ulrich was born in Aachen. But Becht as the Peasant and Haage as Klaus-Narr a vehemently dramatic Alberich and an incisively flexible character-tenor respectively are both preferable to Ozawa's rather under-cast equivalents, while Fassbaender is an urgently expressive Wood Dove, communicating the tidings of Tove's death with bitter plangency. Resumed in Berlin the middle of 1902. Das tote Herz, es schwillt und dehnt sich, Tove, Tove, Waldemar sehnt sich nach dir! She is in particular demand as a concert singer, in which capacity she regularly appears with all the major British orchestras.
