In recent years John Eliot Gardiner's name has been linked more than any other to a huge upsurge of interest in Monteverdi's extraordinary Vespers of Id 10. lieu-itched al his firsl hearing of the work us a child, he went on to conduct it as a Cambridge undergraduate. For that first performance of the then almost unheard-of Vespers, Gardiner formed The Monteverdi Choir, which today enjoys a considerable international reputation in the performance of a wide range of music. In all of their performances over the last twenty-five years the choir has been accompanied by The English Baroque Soloists, also founded by Gardiner (in 1978). It is these forces, together with His Majesties Sagbutts and Cornetts and the London Oratory Junior Choir, which perform the Vespers in St. Mark's.While the Vespers were published three years before Monteverdi took up his post as maestro di cappella of St. Mark's, Gardiner believes the work may well have been written to attract the attention of the Venetian authorities. For, although a highly successful court composer in Mantua, Monteverdi was deeply unhappy there and would have seen Venice as likely to In-more appreciative of his talents. (Indeed, he stayed in Venice for the remaining thirty years of his life and enjoyed there the eminence and fortune which he considered his due.) In his introduction to the performance, Gardiner produces evidence from the Venetian State Archives to suggest that it may have been the Vespers which were performed at Monteverdi's audition for the St. Mark's job.In fact the origins of the Vespers are shrouded in mystery - and it is not even known where or whether they were performed in Monteverdi's lifetime Nevertheless, it is. as John Eliot Gardiner contends, a work that fits the architecture and resonance of St. Mark's perfectly. As the composer of L'Orfeo, Monteverdi was a man of the theatre par excellence. Musically, the Vespers are L'Orfeo's twin and form a highly theatrical work' which seems to find its natural stage in St. Mark's. Although much of Gardiner's performance takes place on a central platform, he also positions singers, at different times, in pulpits, galleries and archways, creating an extraordinary visual and acoustic effect.In recent years the Vespers have been the subject of considerable speculation. Some academics have argued that the Vespers as published do not constitute a liturgical or musical entity. The interweaving of the psalms and the sometimes remarkably sensuous motets, in place of the traditional plainchant and antiphons, is the cause of much controversy. Gardiner is far from dismissive about this speculation but emphasizes that it is not more than that - pure guesswork. He remains impressed by the structural balance and unity of the Vespers as published - and that is how they are performed here.

The great folk-singing phenomenon known as the Kingston Trio returns in this star-studded special for an exciting and moving reunion - with original members, replacement members, and special guests. "Tom Dooley," "M.T.A.," "Where Have All The Flowers Gone," "Scotch And Soda," "Hard Travelin'," "Worried Man," and many other well-loved songs from that benchmark era come back to life here. The camaraderie is fun and powerful - the Trio moves easily from self-deprecating humor to deeply felt emotion.

"John E. Woods is revising our impression of Thomas Mann, masterpiece by masterpiece." - The New Yorker "Doctor Faustus is Mann's deepest artistic gesture... Finely translated by John E. Woods." - The New Republic Thomas Mann's last great novel, first published in 1947 and now newly rendered into English by acclaimed translator John E. Woods, is a modern reworking of the Faust legend, in which Germany sells its soul to the Devil. Mann's protagonist, the composer Adrian Leverk?hn, is the flower of German culture, a brilliant, isolated, overreaching figure, his radical new music a breakneck game played by art at the very edge of impossibility. In return for twenty-four years of unparalleled musical accomplishment, he bargains away his soul--and the ability to love his fellow man. Leverk?hn's life story is a brilliant allegory of the rise of the Third Reich, of Germany's renunciation of its own humanity and its embrace of ambition and nihilism. It is also Mann's most profound meditation on the German genius--both national and individual--and the terrible responsibilities of the truly great artist.1049 Руб.

John Bunyan was variously a tinker, soldier, Baptist minister, prisoner and writer of outstanding narrative genius which reached its apotheosis in this, his greatest work. It is an allegory of the Christian life of true brilliance and is presented as a dream which describes the pilgrimage of the hero - Christian - from the City of Destruction via the Slough of Despond, the Hill of Difficulty, the Valley of the Shadow of Death and Vanity Fair over the River of the Water of Life and into the Celestial City. The Pilgrim's Progress has been translated into 108 languages, was a favourite of Dr Johnson and was praised by Coleridge as one of the few books which might be read repeatedly and each time with a new and different pleasure.333 Руб.
ntroduction and Notes by David Blair, University of Kent at Canterbury Set in the reign of Richard I, Coeur de Lion, Ivanhoe is packed with memorable incidents - sieges, ambushes and combats - and equally memorable characters: Cedric of Rotherwood, the die-hard Saxon; his ward Rowena; the fierce Templar knight, Sir Brian de Bois-Gilbert; the Jew, Isaac of York, and his beautiful, spirited daughter Rebecca; Wamba and Gurth, jester and swineherd respectively. Scott explores the conflicts between the Crown and the powerful Barons, between the Norman overlords and the conquered Saxons, and between Richard and his scheming brother, Prince John. At the same time he brings into the novel the legendary Robin Hood and his band, and creates a brilliant, colourful account of the age of chivalry with all its elaborate rituals and costumes and its values of honour and personal glory.194 Руб.
