The ballet is about a peasant girl, Giselle, who dies of a broken heart after discovering her lover is betrothed to another.  The Willis, a group of supernatural women who dance men to death, summon Giselle from her grave to target her lover.  However, Giselle's great love frees him from their grasp. This performance is by the CMD Philharmonic of Paris and is conducted by William Boult.

I due Foscari (The Two Foscari) is an opera in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi to an Italian libretto by Francesco Maria Piave, based on a historical play, The Two Foscari by Lord Byron. After his success with Ernani, Verdi received a commission from Rome's Teatro Argentina and he went to work with Piave in considering two subjects, one of which eventually became this opera. I due Foscari was given its premiere performance in Rome on 3 November 1844 and was generally quite successful, although not on the scale of Ernani, which remained Verdi's most popular opera until Il trovatore in 1853. Thank you for listening to Verdi's "I due Foscari" performed by the CMD Grand Opera Company of Venice.  This recording is available at our online store "www.ClassicalRecordings.co" for only $1.99 as a digital download.

Shostakovich's Symphony No. 6 was originally intended to be a very large scale work dedicated to Lenin and titled the "Lenin Symphony."  However, for whatever reasons this project was never fully realized.  Instead, this large symphonic and choral behemoth was trimmed down to a 3 movement symphony which is purely instrumental.  The symphony, according to Shostakovich, became a celebration of Spring, youth and joy, quite the opposite of the composer's previous symphony. The symphony was debuted by the Leningrad Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Yevgeny Mravinsky on Nov. 21, 1939.  The symphony was officially known to have its first recording by Leopold Stowkowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra in December 1940 for RCA Victor. However, the premiere concert of the symphony was recorded by Melodiya and was never released.  This recording has remained buried in the vaults at Melodiya until discovered and given to Classical Music Discoveries in 2014. Now, fully restored and digitized by Classical Music Discoveries is available to the public for the first time in over 76 years.

Richard Wadsworth, from Philadelphia, is a rock and classical musician who specializes on the electric guitar.  This work is performed with the band "Renaissance." This very Avante-Garde solo work entitled "Christ" was composed over a 4-year period and musically illustrates Christ's battle with Satan during the 40 days of fasting in the desert and Christ's ascension. Richard says this new work is also a new beginning for classical music and fully illustrates his belief of the future direction of classical music. The staff at Classical Music Discoveries wants to gently remind our audience that this extremely Avante-Garde music is not our usual fare of music to broadcast, but we believe this music will be interesting to some of our listeners, especially to those that appreciate experimental music. While Richard does not have a website, his music is available on Itunes and Amazon. To download/listen to Richard's entire library of works for FREE, please click HERE.

Ernani is an operatic dramma lirico in four acts by Giuseppe Verdi to an Italian libretto by Francesco Maria Piave, based on the play Hernani by Victor Hugo. Verdi was commissioned by the Teatro La Fenice in Venice to write an opera, but finding the right subject took some time, and the composer worked with the inexperienced Piave in shaping first one and then another drama by Hugo into an acceptable libretto. As musicologist Roger Parker notes, the composer "intervened on several important points, insisting for example that the role of Ernani be sung by a tenor (rather than by a contralto as had originally been planned). Ernani was first performed on 9 March 1844 and it was "immensely popular, and was revived countless times during its early years".  It became Verdi's most popular opera until it was superseded by Il trovatore after 1853. In 1904 it became the first opera to be recorded completely.
