Franck - Le chasseur maudit (The Accursed Hunter)

Eiji Oue / Minnesota Orchestra

It was inspired by the ballad Der wilde Jäger (The Wild Hunter) by the German poet Gottfried August Bürger. It tells the story of a Count of the Rhine who dares to go hunting on a Sunday morning, in violation of the Sabbath. As the piece begins, the count defiantly sounds his hunting horn, despite the warnings of the church bells and sacred chants which call the faithful to worship. Deep in the woods, the count is cursed by a terrible voice which condemns him to be pursued by demons for eternity.

Beethoven concert in Berlin

Here highlights and interviews of Mutter and Barenboim


And here the whole concert
Beethoven
Egmont Overture
Romance for Violin and Orquestra num 1
Romance for Violin and Orquestra num 2
Symphony num 9

Staatskapelle Berlin
Anne Sophie Mutter
Daniel Barenboim

A "Like", because I want them all to be able to perform with an audience present again.
And both Mutter and Barenboim are great artists.
But each individual chorister with a mic attached, in Beethoven's 9th is not the way I ideally want to hear this, or any other classical symphony live or recorded.
Some of the 2020 Salzburg Festival concerts had an audience in Grosses Festspielhaus and I really hope we'll get back to normal again ,asap.
Classical music amplified like this ,is definitely not my cup of tea, other than amplified via my own headphone or speaker amps.
The most disappointing concert I have ever attended was the Wiener Philharmoniker amplified in a huge Sports arena in Gothenburg Sweden, many many years ago.
They managed to squeeze in 4 to 6 K pax in the audience but the VPO sounded terrible amplifed.

I have also only seen him conduct once in Singapore doing the Planets quite impressively with the SSO.
He has recorded some orchestral spectaculars for Reference Recordings.
I have a cd with him conducting Bernstein's Candide overture and other "light" works by him.

Today's best cheering up video imho.
Apparently very recent and with an audience to.Orchestre de Paris, Marin Alsop, Khatia Buniatishvili 1 - YouTube
Kathia est formidable!

Her dynamic range and technique is amazing, and ( I do not have a real musical education) she reminds me of the passion of Leonard Bernstein the pianist, who was not technically as good but equally passionate in this marvelous record
