Pretty cool vid of Ray Chen comparing violin sounds and playing violin against his chest better than I can dream of playing normally.

Gould made some of my favorite Brahms recordings although most of his non-baroque stuff isn't really great

Thanks for the heads up about this, I finally got around to listening to the Intermezzi album and I enjoyed it a lot.

The Bayreuth festival is currently streaming their production of Tannhauser. I find it a bit of a snooze fest but they set design/staging is loving wild and they are currently singing in a burger king with a prostitute, some clowns and a little person.

German opera staging is loving crazy. I saw the ring cycle when I lived in Hannover and it was buckwild. The Valkyrie was set in suburbia and the valkyries were on motorcycles, Wotan was jogging in shorts and t-shirt with a bunch of bodyguards and there were a ton of naked people... but I kept looking at the house Siegfried was in and there was this weird growth on the ceiling, and I was like... wtf is that, that kind of looks like... is that... a vagina?? And then Siegfried pulls the sword from it and all this green goop falls out on him and he's singing covered in this vagina goop and Act 1 ends and the whole theater loving erupts in boos and jeers like Rite of Spring style, it was nuts.

Boheme was set on the moon, Rigoletto gave birth to his daughter... I've seen some poo poo, man.

this is amazing.
i consistently find the staging to be the most interesting part of many productions these days. If they're going to be running back the same stuff they gotta find ways to keep it interesting. If anything I'd be open to them messing with the score or plot even but I think that would be a bridge too far for the donor class.
A few years back I saw Aida set in some dystopian Argentinian futuristic fascist state and Valkerie set in some 90s American-Psycho style wall street office/boiler room. I actually thought the Verdi one was really good and it was even better to see all the geezers who go for the spectacle and pomp being frustrated that they didn't play it straight.

Is it okay to post about modern/contemporary classical music in this thread? One of my favourite artists is Ludovico Einaudi, Una Mattina is one of my favourite albums of all time, and I just love how piano driven his stuff is.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Bvm9yG4cvs

Also, the late Jóhann Jóhannsson, in particular his epic album "IBM 1401, A User's Manual"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBw_wSoVQrY

Recently I heard a song used in a car commercial which sounded familiar, turns out it was "Arrival of The Birds" by The Cinematic Orchestra, originally written for the DisneyNature film "The Crimson Wing: Mystery of The Flamingos" but was also used in the last scene of the Stephen Hawking biography "The Theory of Everything"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqoANESQ4cQ

I know this stuff isn't strictly classical but it is beautiful music I think so belongs here, also The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra do some amazing performances of modern songs as well as movie tracks, such as Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know" and "This Land" from The Lion King

That's a bummer. I enjoy watching him conduct, very much in control but still expressive. He made some lovely comments about women conductors, which was a bummer coming from someone like him, but he did kind of walk it back.

The Met is streaming operas for free every day until they reopen and they're available for 20 hours after the broadcast. Tonight is Carmen and tomorrow is Boheme. Sunday is Yevgeny Onegin conducted by Valery Gergiev

They're all old broadcasts but still nice if you haven't seen them yet, or even if you have.

Unfortunately they're website's getting hammered and all I'm getting is 503 lol

Amazon Firestick, Apple TV or Chromecast. D/lL the Met's app and use the free preview rather than signing up. This version of Carmen is glorious.

quote:

The Metropolitan Opera has laid off all of its union employees.

According to NPR’s Anastasia Tsioulcas, this includes musicians and chorus members (OperaWire has reached out to the Met for further comment and will update this story with any new developments).

This comes on the heels of another report from Middle-Class Artist stating that the company would not be compensating its contracted soloists; in this latter report, the Met invoked the Force Majeure clause in its contracts with regards to these cancelations (Middle-Class Artist also has a piece on how the Met Opera was helped by artists taking pay cuts on two separate occasions when the company was facing financial straits). A recent NPR article noted that Met Opera General Manager Peter Gelb made an estimated $2.17 million during the company’s previous financial year. He also signed a contract extension in late 2019 to stay on until 2027.

The company has not yet confirmed the status of its 2019-20 season and whether it will be completed, though this latest situation suggests that there won’t be more opera come April. The Met has officially closed its doors through March 31, but several companies around the world are already taking precautions of shutting down into the summer. The Dallas Opera recently announced that it was done with the 2019-20 season, while the Glyndebourne Festival noted that instead of opening in May, it was pushing back the start of its 2020 festival in July.

The Met Opera recently kicked off a nightly online streaming service in which it allows audiences to check out performances from its Live in HD archives.
