Oberto, Conte di San Bonifacio is an opera in two acts by Giuseppe Verdi to an Italian libretto by Temistocle Solera, based on an existing libretto by Antonio Piazza probably called Rocester. It was Verdi's first opera, written over a period of four years and was first performed at the Teatro alla Scala, Milan, on 17 November 1839. The La Scala production enjoyed "a fair success" and the theatre's impresario, Bartolomeo Merelli, commissioned two further operas from the young composer. This rarely performed opera, by the CMD Grand Opera Company of Venice, can now be purchased at our online music store for only $1.99.  Visit www.ClassicalRecordings.co, or if your browser supports hyperlinks, just click on the name of the chapter as the opera is being played.   Please click on the link below to support Classical Music Discoveries.  Your kind donation of ANY amount is greatly appreciated!

In this month's edition of Classical Essentials we bring to you Beethoven's Symphony No 3 in E-flat Major, also known as the Eroica symphony. The back story for this symphony is as famous as the symphony itself.  Beethoven was a great admirer of Napoleon Bonaparte as he believed that Napoleon would stand up for the common people.  As with all tyrants, Napoleon's support of the common people was only a front to disguise his real intentions - to be a dictator.  We know this all too well, even in today's world. Once Napoleon declared himself to be the Emporer of France, then Beethoven quickly changed his mind about Napoleon.  Beethoven tore up the 1st page of the symphony, with the dedication to Napoleon.  Later, of course, the 1st page was re-written along with the title change to "Eroica" or the "Heroic Symphony." Indeed, this new title more fully describes this masterwork of Beethoven.  Breaking free from the restrictions of the previous Classical period, Beethoven ushers in the early romantic period of music.  This symphony breaks new ground and ushers in a period which would bring the world such greats as Brahms, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky and many others.  Also Beethoven would continue breaking new ground in symphonic writing with his later 6 symphonies which we will explore in later editions of Classical Essentials. Thanks to a generous donation from Dennis Loeffel, this and other great works can be downloaded, for free, at our Classical Essentials website at: www.CMDEssentials.com This performance is presented to you by the CMD Philharmonic of Paris and is conducted by Charlotte Twig of the United States.
