As with the rest of the world, the staff at Classical Music Discoveries was horrified to learn of the recent tragic events happening on the evening of November 13th in Paris France.We wish to thank all of our French listeners and musicians that notified us on Facebook that they were safe and unharmed.  It is indeed tragic that a country that opened its doors to refugees from the mideast was attacked by militants posing as refugees seeking the safe harbor of France.To honor the brave people of France we have put together this show featuring music of the French master composer Claude Debussy.Debussy was one of the prominent figures associated with French Impressionism and his use of non-traditional scales and lyrical chromaticism influenced many composers who followed in his footsteps.In this broadcast we will hear:  Nocturnes Jeux The Children's Corner All works are performed by the CMD Philharmonic of Paris and conducted by Alise Bonnet.

The Bandits is an opera in four acts by Giuseppe Verdi to an Italian libretto by Andrea Maffei, based on Die Räuber by Friedrich von Schiller. As Verdi became more successful in Italy, he began to receive offers from other opera houses outside the country. The London impresario Benjamin Lumley had presented Ernani in 1845 and, as a result of its success, commissioned an opera from the composer which became I masnadieri. It was given its first performance at Her Majesty's Theatre on 22 July 1847 with Verdi conducting the first two performances. While reasonably successful there and in Italy up to the mid-1860s, the opera disappeared for about 90 years until revived in 1951. It has been revived from time to time in the 21st century.

Welcome to another edition of Classical Essentials, made possible by a generous donation from Dennis Loeffel. Scheherazade, Op. 35, is a symphonic poem composed by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov in 1888 and based on One Thousand and One Nights, sometimes known as The Arabian Nights.   This orchestral work combines two features typical of Russian music and of Rimsky-Korsakov in particular: dazzling, colorful orchestration and an interest in the East, which figured greatly in the history of Imperial Russia, as well as orientalism in general. It is considered Rimsky-Korsakov's most popular work. This and many other classical works are available as a free download on our Classical Essentials website at: www.ClassicalEssentials.co.  This series is made possible by a generous donation from Dennis Loeffel. Performed by the CMD Philharmonic of Moscow Conducted by Roger Johns You can download this performance for free at www.ClassicalEssentials.co or just click on the link provided below on this show's title page. We want to thank Dennis Loeffel for sponsoring Classical Essentials which provides all of our listeners a great way to build their classical music library free of charge.
