A Word About Timings

All timings are listed in both Greenwich Mean Time and Eastern Daylight Time. North America is now on Daylight Time. Europe is shifting to Daylight Time today at 2:00AM local time. For those of you who live in other time zones, you will need to make a calculation to derive the time of an event where you live. In North America subtract four (4) hours (from GMT) for the Eastern Time Zone, five (5) hours for the Central Time Zone, and six (6) hours for the Mountain Time Zone. Subtract seven (7) hours for the Pacific Time Zone and eight (8) hours for Alaska, and nine (9) hours for Hawaii. UK, Ireland and Portugal are one (1) hour ahead of GMT. In most of the rest of Europe add two (2) hours (some Eastern European countries are three (3) hours ahead of GMT). In the Southern Hemisphere, Australia and New Zealand are still on Daylight Time (Australia is 11 hours ahead of GMT; New Zealand is 13 hours ahead of GMT).

For those in the United States, it is useful to keep in mind that broadcasts in the evening hours often appear in the NEXT day's listings because they occur in the small hours in GMT time, which is our primary reference in the following listings.

For more information on time zone calculations, double click the time display on the lower right of your screen (if you are using a PC) to display the Time Zone tab, then click on the drop-down menu for a full list of time zones and their relationships to Greenwich Mean Time. You may also let the TIME CONVERTER do the calculations for you.

Puccini: Turandot (CETRA 1938) July 21, 2018

Tune in to hear the very first recording of Puccini's Turnadot, made in 1938.

Turandot is an opera in three acts by Giacomo Puccini, completed by Franco Alfano, and set to a libretto in Italian by Giuseppe Adami and Renato Simoni.

Though Puccini's first interest in the subject was based on his reading of Friedrich Schiller's 1801 adaptation of the play, his work is most nearly based on the earlier text Turandot (1762) by Count Carlo Gozzi. The original story is based on one of the seven stories in the epic Haft Peykar (The Seven Beauties), work of 12th-century Persian poet Nizami. Nizami aligned the seven stories with the seven days of the week, the seven colors and the seven corresponding planets. This particular story is the story of Monday ("moon day"), being told to King Bahram by his companion of the red dome. In the very first line of this story, the protagonist is identified as a Russian princess. The name of the opera is based on Turan-Dokht (daughter of Turan), which is a common name used in Persian poetry for Central Asian princesses.

The opera's version of the story is set in China and involves Prince Calaf, who falls in love with the cold Princess Turandot. To obtain permission to marry her, a suitor has to solve three riddles; any wrong answer results in death. Calaf passes the test, but Turandot still refuses to marry him. He offers her a way out: if she is able to learn his name before dawn the next day, then at daybreak he will die. In the original story by Nizami, the princess sets four conditions. The first is "a good name and good deeds", and then the three challenges.

The opera was unfinished at the time of Puccini's death in 1924, and was completed by Franco Alfano in 1926. The first performance was held at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan on April 25, 1926 and conducted by Arturo Toscanini. This performance included only Puccini's music and not Alfano's additions. The first performance of the opera as completed by Alfano was the following night, April 26, although it is disputed whether this was conducted by Toscanini again or by Ettore Panizza.

Turandot – Gina Cigna
Calaf – Francesco Merli
Liu – Magda Olivero

Ernst Daniël: Portret van Giuseppe di Stefano
Giuseppe di Stefano (Motta Sant'Anastasia (Sicilië), 24 juli 1921 - Milaan, 3 maart 2008) was een Italiaanse tenor. Hij was mede bekend door zijn veelvuldig optreden met Maria Callas, met wie hij ook vele grammofoonplaten opnam en met wie hij een korte romance had.

Zijn debuut beleefde hij in 1946 in Reggio Emilia als Des Grieux in Jules Massenets opera Manon. Met dezelfde rol maakte hij een jaar later zijn debuut aan het Teatro alla Scala van Milaan. In 1948 maakte hij zijn debuut aan de Metropolitan Opera als de Hertog in Rigoletto van Giuseppe Verdi. Tijdens zijn internationale carrière won hij een Gouden Orfeo, een Italiaanse muziekprijs, vergelijkbaar met de Amerikaanse Oscar. In december 2004 raakte Di Stefano levensgevaarlijk gewond bij zijn tweede huis in Diani Beach in Kenia doordat hij door onbekend gebleven brute overvallers in elkaar werd geslagen. De zanger was een week bewusteloos, onderging verscheidene operaties en kreeg voeding via een infuus. Daarna werd hij overgevlogen naar de San Rafaëlkliniek in Milaan waar hij op 3 maart 2008 overleed.

Hoogtepunten uit A Quite Place
A Quite Place is een Amerikaanse opera uit 1983 met muziek van Leonard Bernstein en een libretto door Stephen Wadsworth. A Quite Place vertelt het verhaal van een Amerikaans gezin dat worstelt met emoties na de dood van een geliefde bij een auto-ongeluk waar drank in het spel was. (2 hrs.)

Sunday Afternoon at the Opera: Handel, Acis and Galatea.
Every summer I try to include in the programming mix something pastoral in nature. Over the decades several recordings have been made of George Frideric Handel's delightful masque in two acts Acis and Galatea (1718), which like Henry Purcell's Dido and Aeneas (1689) vies for consideration as the first true opera in English language. The libretto was written by John Gay, who a few years later would write The Beggar's Opera, the enormously popular lyric comedy. Handel's original Cannons scoring for this pastoral entertainment called for pairs of violins, cellos and oboes or recorders with harpsichord. The five singers Handel required sing in solo capacity as characters in the mythic drama. They join voices to form a mini-chorus. Such were the musical resources available to the composer on the country estate of his patron the Duke of Chandos. This intimate, small-scale version of the work was the one released in 1988 by Newport Classics on two compact discs. Johannes Somary conducts the tiny period instrument Amor Artis Orchestra. I last broadcast this recording on Sunday, July 20, 2008 and before that on Sunday, June 4, 1995. The English masque was rendered into a German language secular oratorio, Handel's music adapted for a larger orchestra and rescored in high classical style by none other than Mozart in 1788. The 1991 DGG Archiv recording of the Handel/Mozart Acis und Galatea, with Trevor Pinnock conducting the English Concert, I broadcast first on Sunday, May 21, 2006 and again on Sunday, July 14, 2013.

'It is the best thing I have ever done,' said Mahler of his Eighth Symphony - for which tonight the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Thomas Søndergård, in his final season as Principal Conductor, join forces with no fewer than five choirs. One of the grandest symphonic statements of the repertoire, concluding with a dramatic setting of the mystical closing scene from Goethe's Faust, its mammoth scale matches the impressive space of the Royal Albert Hall.
