Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg series
This is a multiple-release collaboration with the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg (OPL), and their conductor, rising star Gustavo Gimeno. Conceptually tying together the albums in the series is the idea of pairing major works with lesser-known music from the same composer. Elements of the architecture of the Philharmonie Luxembourg link together all the covers.
AMERICAN OPERAS Series
As the American repertoire has expanded over the centuries, so have American audiences, drawn to contemporaneous topics played out in their native tongue. But American operas are no longer confined to listeners in the US; the works of American composers have been increasingly heard throughout the world. American opera embodies the individualism of its homeland, and with each generation new musical language has found its voice in American opera – a voice that resonates with all who love the music, the drama and the brilliance that is opera.
PENTATONE’s dance music series is a mini-series of three albums that feature ballet, theatre and dance music performed by the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande conducted by Kazuki Yamada. The series lets you savour the famously vibrant compositions from the French, German, and Russian speaking countries. These are vigorous performances of famous works and the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande is in top form. The music is popular, yet there is always room for conductor Kazuki Yamada and the orchestra to approach it with verve and enthusiasm.
REMASTERED CLASSICS Philips Classics
Philips Classics began making multi-channel recordings back in the 1970s. The concept of surround sound was as yet unheard of, let alone the possibility that this might some day be reproduced at home in the living room. Just as the birds intensify and refine the beauty of nature with their song – at times soothing, at others forceful, or amusing, yet on the whole extremely attractive – the perfect mixture of classical works and superior quality of the REMASTERED CLASSICS series, are sure to intensify and refine your own musical journey.
