LIVE FROM THE EASTER FESTIVAL IN BADEN-BADEN

EuroArts Music presents two live productions, which will be recorded at this year's Easter Festival in Baden-Baden

PUCCINI: MANON LESCAUT
Wednesday, 16 April 2014, 6:00 p.m. CET
Live signal available

Opera in four acts by Giacomo Puccini after Histoire du Chevalier Des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut des Abbé Prévost

Berliner Philharmoniker • Sir Simon Rattle, conductor • Philharmonia Choir Vienna
Eva-Maria Westbroek, Manon Lescaut • Lester Lnych, Lescaut • Massimo Giordano, Chevalier Renato Des Grieux • Liang Li, Geronte de Ravoir • Bogdan Mihai, Edmond • Reinhard Dorn, Innkeeper • Magdalena Kožená, Singer • Kresimir Spicer, Dancing Master • Arthur Espiritu, Lamplighter • Johannes Kammler, Sergeant
Richard Eyre, direction • Robert Howell, stage • Fotini Dimou, costumes • Peter Mumford, light design

The fact that the Berliner Philharmoniker turn to Puccini – this beloved yet ostracized composer – is symbolic. Here is someone who was thought to be outmoded for a long time, but there is really so much more to be discovered about him and his work. The tale of one, who becomes a model but remains a girl, is very contemporary.

Length: approx. 150' • HD
Directed by János Darvas
Produced by EuroArts Music in co-production with SWR/arte & NHK

SOL GABETTA & SIR SIMON RATTLE IN BADEN-BADEN
Sunday, 20 April 2014, 6:00 p.m. CET
Live signal available

Berliner Philharmoniker • Sir Simon Rattle, conductor
Sol Gabetta, cello
György Ligeti: Atmosphères
Richard Wagner: Prelude to Act 1 of the opera “Lohengrin”
Edward Elgar: Cello Concerto in E minor, Op. 85
Igor Stravinsky: Le Sacre du Printemps

It has changed over the years that Edward Elgar’s warm and melodically charged Cello Concerto –long considered to be behind the times– once again sounds modern and fresh. Sol Gabetta recently released a highly praised recording of the work and on Easter Sunday 2014 the cellist will make her debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker.

Length: approx. 90' • HD
Directed by Torben Schmidt Jacobsen
Produced by EuroArts Music in co-production with SWR/arte & NHK

Both programmes are available for TV Distribution
