from Deutsche Grarmno phon Anne Sofie von Otter Music for a While Anne Sofie has been associated with Deutsche Grammophon and Arch.iv since 1985. For her 20th anniversary release she returns to the music where it all began - that of the Baroque era. Music for a While features Oner accompanied by lutist Jakob Lindberg and Jory Vinikour on cembalo; songs by Purcell, Monteverdi, Dowland, Frescobaldi & Caccini. Emerson String Quartet Felix Mendelssohn: Complete String Quartets/Octet - 4 CD Set Grammy Award winners, Emerson String Quartet, are famous for presenting the complete string quartet repertoire ofBart6k, Beethoven and Shostakovich. Here they follow up with a specially priced 4 cd set of the complete string quartet repertoire of Mendelssohn, a set guaranteed to set new standards for this music. In addition to the seven quartets the 4th disc, offered as a free bonus to the set, includes Mendelssohn's Octet (all parts performed by the Emersons!) as well as an enhanced CD-ROM track, Recording the Octet. Ben Heppner Richard Wa g ner: Die Meistersin g er von Niimber g - 2 DVD Set The MET video production of Richard Wagner's only comedy, Die Meistersinger von Nfunberg, features the revival of Ono Schenk's production recorded in December 2001, with an unmatchable ensemble: Ben Heppner -James Morris - Karita Mattila- Thomas Alan - Rene Pape and the MET chorus and orchestra under the direction ofJames Levine. The Finnish soprano Karita Mattila sang Eva when the production was premiered and again in l 995. Ben has been singing the demanding role of Walther since 1990. For all of his Heldentenor credentials, he takes a properly lyrical approach to the Prize Song. As one critic has remarked, his performance had "the grace of Schubert lieder". available wherever fine music is sold www.deutschegrnmmophon.com
