Description

Pelléas et Mélisande (3 CD)
Label: PRX/Warner Classics/Parlophone
Release Date: 01/20/17

Pelléas et Mélisande, often perceived as an opera of understatement and half-lights, is transformed by Herbert von Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra into an intense, but still mysterious drama of seething passions. As the powerful yet tortured Golaud, José van Dam is heard in perhaps his greatest role, while the poetic Richard Stilwell as his half-brother Pelléas falls under the spell of Frederica von Stade, enigmatically sensuous as Mélisande.

For many, Herbert von Karajan (1908-1989) - hailed early in his career as `Das Wunder Karajan` (The Karajan Miracle) and known in the early 1960s as `the music director of Europe` - remains the ultimate embodiment of the maestro.  He was closely associated with EMI for the majority of his recording career (specifically from 1946 to 1960 and then again from 1969 to 1984).
