News and opinions of the music world GMD wanted! Most recently, the journalist colleagues of the “Augsburger Allgemeine” were always close at hand when various conductors applied for the position of local general music director in symphony concerts and opera performances. Elias Grandy and William Lacey stood out among them. But now it's time for the Augsburg critic: detention! Because as the search committee has now decided, the application process starts all over again. The reason for this: A conductor who had worked his way up to the shortlist signaled that he was not interested in the vacant post after all. Bad news, especially since the music business in the third largest city in Bavaria has a very good reputation - also thanks to the previous GMD Dirk Kaftan. Since he wants to concentrate on his job as chief conductor of the Graz Opera and the Graz Philharmonic Orchestra in the future, a successor should be found at the beginning of the coming season. Now all those among the more than 160 applicants who did not make it to the finals in 2013 can again count on a chance. RL Himself is the man Valery Gergiev's Mariinsky Orchestra has one, as does the Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra. And even the early music drivers Gardiner, Savall and Christie belong to the select group of musicians who have founded their own label. Now, within a few days, two further start-ups were presented in Berlin. The Berliner Philharmoniker announced that from now on they will be releasing mainly symphonic works as CDs and DVDs under the name “Berliner Philharmoniker Recordings”. Thereupon Daniel Barenboim let the cat out of the bag: his label "Peral Music" (Peral is the Spanish word for "pear tree", which is derived from the Yiddish "Barenboim") is aimed at a younger classical audience and therefore only sells the recordings online via iTunes. But was this illustrious name not offered a blanket contract for projects of all kinds by one of the major labels? Apparently not, because as Olaf Maninger, the orchestra director of the Berlin Philharmonic, who is responsible for media, explained that the companies are primarily concerned with celebrity cults - and soloists who can sell well. GF home visit to Callas From 1910 onwards, the French production company Pathé informed its compatriots in the cinema newsreels in short films about politics, sport and culture. In the course of the next few decades, a lot of material came together - including curiosities, as can now be found on www.britishpathe. com made accessible archive with around 80,000 videos. It is worth browsing through, especially for music lovers: you can marvel at the nine-year-old conductor Pierino Gamba, who in 1945 leads the Lamoureux Orchestra in shorts but with the self-confidence of an adult. With Toscanini you can take the chairlift up into the mountains. And while Isaac Stern presented his $ 100,000 violin to a journalist in Australia, Van Cliburn, the newly crowned winner of the Tchaikovsky competition, picked up a congratulatory kiss from jury chairman Emil Gilels. A visit to the hard-working housewife Maria Callas in her apartment in Milan in 1958 is particularly recommended. First the roses are tugged a little - before there is a high-proof to relax. GF 4 Letters to the Editor On New Releases and the Quality of Sound Carrier Production, RONDO 6/2013 Only a question of time the world goes on and on and so the record was replaced by the CD over 30 years ago. Really? In fact, it now looks almost the other way around. A multitude of new releases and high-quality re-releases on vinyl can be discovered in music advertising. The CD has faced considerable competition from formats such as download, SACD, Blue-Ray, and streaming and, in the opinion of many experts, will not be able to hold its own as a sound carrier in the long term. [...] In your beautiful portrait of the Berliners with the draft horse Lang Lang and his trainer Rattle it says, for example, "Diary of a CD recording", although the production is currently available as a vinyl edition and is also available as a download. Recordings are no longer just made for CDs. I would like it if you could soften the outdated focus on the CD as the sole medium in your reports and reviews and could refer to vinyl and other formats in the case of new releases. [...] Quality will prevail in the long term and therefore it was only a question of time when the CD with its tonal limitations would lose the race for market leadership. With audiophile greetings, Your loyal readers, Matthias Reidans, Darmstadt On the review of Rameau's “Platée”, RONDO 2/2014 Humor and self-irony I found the comment about Karl Lagerfeld [s double] in the review of the Viennese “Platée” production simply outrageous , or really offensive! You can stand by Mr. Lagerfeld however you want, but the man is certainly not an idiot! If he has given permission for his person to be quasi quoted in the current production, could it just be that the good man is simply proving that he has a certain amount of humor and self-irony?

A holiday brought him to the region for the first time: Fascinated by the surrounding mountain scenery and the Italianità of western Switzerland, Yehudi Menuhin is quickly persuaded. The first Yehudi Menuhin Music Summer takes place in 1956, based on an idea from the then spa director Paul Valentin and with Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears as the first star guests. Almost fifty years later, the festival still skilfully combines local color with international charisma, and Menuhin's idea of ​​making music in front of an audience in the Bernese Oberland “among and with musical friends” also has an unmistakable appeal in the now strongly grown European festival landscape. The RONDO readers' trip to Gstaad takes you to chamber music highlights of the festival season and sights of the region over five days and lets you share in Yehudi Menuhin's original enthusiasm for Gstaad.
