Image Luigi Dallapiccola: Il Prigioniero der Gefangene
Dallapiccola‘s timbres lead us through the darknesses of the human soul, allowing us to hope together with the prisoner, for we hear with him the saving word 'fratello' (brother). At the moment of the greatest fulfilment of hope, he is seized by the arms of the Grand Inquisitor and must acknowledge that hope was the worst torture of all. The performance series in Graz in March 2017, from which the present recording is taken, was praised in the highest terms by the musical press.

Image Andrea Lorenzo Scartazzini: Edward II (world premi
When one selects the subject of a gay king and his tragic story for an opera, the aspect of homosexuality is naturally at the foreground, as is the question of whether such a subject is still relevant in Central Europe in view of the strivings for equal rights there. Edward II is not the first 'gay' opera and will surely not be the last one, either. But most dramas concerning relationships in literature and opera have always focused on the classical heterosexual constellation. Telling more stories about love between people of the same sex, however, does not necessarily have to be due to current political reality. Rather, it is a sign of a growing social variety that is also reflected in contemporary art. (Andrea Lorenzo Scartazzini)

Image Friedrich von Flotow: Martha
With a terrific cast including Maria Bengtsson and Katharina Magiera, and under the baton of Sebastian Weigle, OehmsClassics and Opera Frankfurt bring back to life a nearly forgotten jewel of comic opera in the 19th century. After the premiere at the Viennese Kärntnertortheater in 1847, Friedrich von Flotow’s Martha became one of the most popular operas in Europe for nearly half a century. Full of charming melodies and with a plot as hilarious as it is fast-paced, the story of bored Lady Harriet Durham and her friend Nancy, who travel as 'Martha' and 'Julia' to the Richmond servant’s fair not only to find a job but also true love, is an enchanting example of 1850’s opera and also Friedrich von Flotow’s wonderful light-hearted music.

Image Aribert Reimann: L'Invisible
For L’Invisible, like his other two most recent operas Bernarda Alba’s House and Medea, Aribert Reimann has turned to a text of world literature, adapting it as his own librettist. With it, he returns to his 'home' opera house, the Deutsche Oper Berlin. Four of his stage works were commissioned by that opera house and the world premiere of his new, ninth opera was also given there. It was staged by Vasily Barkhatov, one of the most interesting Russian directors of his generation, who made his debut at the opera house on Bismarckstraße after having worked at the Moscow Bolshoi Theatre and the Mariinski Theatre in St. Petersburg. The premiere was conducted by the Principal Conductor himself, Donald Runnicles.

Image Alban Berg: Wozzeck
Alban Berg’s Wozzeck, premiered at Lindenoper, Berlin in 1925, is regarded as one of the key music compositions of the 20th century and an essential work in any connoisseur’s collection. Frankfurt Opera, under the baton of Sebastian Weigle, delivers a razor-sharp and exciting interpretation. With Audun Iversen and Claudia Mahnke in the main roles the recording shows an ideal cast.

£24.99
Image Martinu: The Greek Passion
The style of the Czech composer Bohuslav Martinu was enriched by numerous influences which are reflected in The Greek Passion; magnificent choirs contrast vividly with intimate chamber music, and folkloristic elements are placed next to complex, classically worked-out orchestral movements. A highly emotional mixture of oratorio and dramatic opera takes the listener into a world in which catastrophes abound. Lorenzo Fioroni, who has directed operas in Nuremberg, Augsburg and Heidelberg, has produced this dramatic contest against fear in Graz.

Image Antonio Cesti: L'Orontea
The premiere of L’Orontea took place in 1656 in Innsbruck at the court of Archduke Ferdinand Karl, grandson of Duke Ferdinand of Tuscany, whom at that time was the patron of the first attempts of the art form of opera in Florence. Alongside Francesco Cavalli's opera La Giasone, L’Orontea went down in history as the most successful opera of the late 17th century.??On the occasion of the premiere in Frankfurt, the following could be read in Deutschlandradio Kultur (Natascha Pflaumbaum): 'It is a scenic production that will remain in one's memory - not because the production in Frankfurt is so shameless and trashy. Instead, it re-minds us of why Antonio Cesti's opera L'Orontea once belonged to the most beloved of all stage works. And it is well worth taking a look into the orchestra pit at this performance'.

Image Giacomo Meyerbeer: Le Prophète
The present CD is the first recording of Meyerbeer‘s principal work, recorded on the basis of the new critical edition of the opera. This edition not only considers the musical text of the version known during the 19th century and released by the publisher by Brandus, but also offers the version of the work that Meyerbeer produced for the definitive instrumentation and allowed to be rehearsed in Paris beginning in December 1848. OehmsClassics is delighted not only over the magnificent production, but also over the continuation of their collaboration with the Aalto Music Theatre in Essen.

Image Björk: Vespertine - a pop album as an opera
An album as an opera. Pop music is theatrical, it lives on stories, constantly creating new characters of art. In addition, no other style has changed and influenced music reception as enduringly as pop music. Most people can draw biographical references on the map of pop mu-sic. So, it seems high time to open the doors of the opera to a new visitor. With its symphonic elements, dramatic singing lines and ethereal choir vocals, Vespertine seems to be the perfect model for the complex project. OehmsClassics begins the new partnership with the Nationaltheater Mannheim (NTM Edition) with a bang. Rarely has a premiere in Germany experienced such a press echo as this, in May 2018.
