Stéphane Bern lève le voile sur Cléopâtre VII, dont seul le récit romancé de ses détracteurs, l'empereur Auguste et les historiens romains, a traversé les siècles. Pourtant, il y a beaucoup de choses à découvrir sur celle qui fut la première reine grecque à parler égyptien et qui, non contente de restaurer la grandeur de son royaume, est aussi parvenue à dompter l'Empire romain. Femme fatale, la dernière reine d'Égypte a conquis Jules César et Marc-Antoine, les deux hommes les plus puissants de son temps. Incroyable et fascinante femme de pouvoir, elle dirige le pays, mène des armées, tue, assassine et organise de somptueuses fêtes, avant que son suicide légendaire ne marque la fin de plus de 3000 ans d'histoire pharaonique.

The young Austrian Minetti Quartett follow up their first two hänssler CLASSIC releases of works by Haydn and Mendelssohn with works from the pen of the Grand Master of the String Quartet: Ludwig van Beethoven. Two early works from Opus 18, the 4th in the tragic key of C minor and the 2nd in a serene G major, frame the stormy “Quartetto serioso” op 95 in F minor. The unprejudiced naturalness and the multifaceted articulation of these four musicians is presented to fullest advantage in these expressive works, once again showcasing the outstanding musicianship of this young quartet.

Recordings such as this superb one serve to remind us that though we may think we know the output of the major composers, there are still treasures to be discovered. Works for individual instruments find their way into recital programs but often lie in shadow of the 'big works' for the concert.

This has always been the version of Shostakovich's Symphony No. 11 to go by. All others pale against this. This first appeared as a double vinyl LP in the 1960s, then as a single LP in the 1970s, and now on this CD. But give credit where all the credit is due: Stokowski extracts a deeply felt performance from the Houston Symphony Orchestra that catches all the nuances of the slow passages of each movement. But kudos go to the sound engineers who capture the incredible bass passages in the last movement. Since this is also a mid-price CD, this is the one to get. –Paul Cook

Monteux draws a brisk and clean performance from the orchestra. The rich and melodic symphony is presented with vitality. Sound is a plus factor, and an interesting portrait of the composer lends excellent display values. There are other versions, but this can compete strongly

Beethoven: Symphony No. 5 in C minor Op. 67; Sibelius: Symphony No. 2 in D, Op. 43 - Concertgebouw Orchestra, Georg Szell

The excellence of these two famous performances hasn't diminished a bit over time. George Szell's Beethoven Fifth exists in three versions: this one; another with the Cleveland Orchestra on Sony; and (finest of all) one with the Vienna Philharmonic live from the Salzburg Festival on Orfeo. Talk about an embarrassment of riches! It's really pointless to dwell on minute variations in interpretation or playing: all three recordings represent a surpassingly high level of achievement, from the taught opening and generously "con moto" Andante, right through the grim scherzo to the explosive finale. It's simply great Beethoven….
