Angela Gheorghiu stars as Marguerite alongside a divine cast of operatic superstars, including Roberto Alagna, Bryn Terfel, Simon Keenlyside and Sophie Koch, in David McVicar's spectacular 2004 production of Gounod's best known opera, Faust, for the Royal Opera House in London. This production was the Royal Opera Company's first performance of Gounod's Faust in 18 years. Gounod's Faust is the story of a scholar who sells his soul to the Devil in exchange for unlimited knowledge and worldly indulgences. McVicar's innovative production sets this story around the time of the Franco-Prussian War (1870) in the gothic, seamy underbelly of Paris. He characterizes Faust, performed by Roberto Alagna, as a man both torn between the theater and religion, and grappling with his own sexuality.

This is a reissue of a recording from 1993 (re-released a few years ago and deleted in 2003), recently remastered for SACD, and it really impresses with a renewed presence and impact, even on standard CD playback. As I said in my original review, Savall's reading "comes as close as these things can to placing us in the best seat in the house and treats us to a rare experience: the sensation of believing we're hearing a ruggedly familiar piece for the first time. Literally bursting with energy, scintillating strings, blazing horns, and incisive winds, and never boring even for one second, these performances give you Handel at his most exciting." If you have the earlier release, you probably don't need this one–unless you now own an SACD system–but it does deserve a place in every Handel collection, not only for the unsurpassed performances, but also for the effect of Savall's several decidedly "non-standard" tempos(!), and of course for the phenomenal sound, which now must have reached its ultimate realism in this format.

David van Reybrouck - Contro le elezioni. Perché votare non è più democratico

Che la democrazia sia in crisi è ormai un luogo comune del dibattito politico in Occidente. In tutta Europa, i cittadini votano sempre meno, sono sempre più inclini a prestare fede a retoriche populiste, non credono più nella classe politica. Che fare? In molti si sono posti questo interrogativo, ma in pochi hanno risposto con una proposta altrettanto radicale e sorprendente di quella di David van Reybrouck: abolire le elezioni, non scegliere più con il meccanismo elettorale i componenti del Parlamento. E affidarsi al sorteggio per determinare chi ha la responsabilità di scrivere le leggi dello stato.
Se ci sembra inconcepibile un simile scenario, sostiene van Reybrouck, è perché abbiamo un’idea sbagliata della funzione e dei vantaggi delle elezioni come metodo di selezione della classe dirigente: per molti di noi le libere elezioni a suffragio universale sono sinonimo di democrazia, e solo i regimi totalitari le hanno abolite.

The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and conductor Daniele Gatti join with the Netherlands Radio Choir and soloists Chen Reiss and Karen Cargill for a vibrant live recording of Mahler's Symphony No. 2 in C Minor "Resurrection”. The history of the world-famous orchestra is interlinked with that of Mahler's own, and the Concertgebouw musicians certainly appear to have an affinity for this music, offering up a rousing and intense interpretation of this well-known symphony with sparkling vocal contributions from Reiss and Cargill.

Anyone listening to this admirable set will gain an accurate impression of David Oistrakh’s overall playing style, his poise, composure, interpretative finesse, velvety tone and highly sophisticated musicianship. Various of the works programmed are - or have been - available in alternative Oistrakh recordings (the Tchaikovsky and Brahms concertos in around six versions apiece), but Melodiya’s selections are, in general, judiciously chosen.
