Flotow: Martha brilliant classics

Nagrania>Nagrania muzyczne

Though its popularity has sadly diminished over the years, up to about the middle of the last century Martha was one of the most frequently performed operas on the German stage -- largely owing to the great tenor Enrico Caruso's acclaimed portrayal of Lyonel, a role which he repeated all over the world. The work is one of about 30 operas written by Friedrich von Flotow, and indeed it was through Martha that the German composer achieved lasting fame. Only a decade after its first performance, and Martha has already been performed as far afield as Algiers, San Francisco and Sydney.The seed of the opera can be found in the pastiche ballet Lady Harriette, whose Act 1 Flotow was commissioned by the Paris Opéra to write in 1844. Set in Richmond, England, during the reign of Queen Anne, the plot centres around Lady Harriet Durham who, tired of court life, decides to have some fun by visiting the local fair with her foppish cousin Lord Tristan and maid Nancy. Disguised as servant girls, both she and Nancy hire themselves off to the rich farmer Plumkett and his foster brother Lyonel (whose origins are unknown, the only vestige being a ring which his father left him and which he should present to the queen if ever he is in danger) -- only to be wooed by the two men, who have each fallen for the maid and her lady respectively. When the next day Queen Anne is out hunting with Lady Harriet and her court, a chance encounter with Lyonel sees him make claim to his 'maid', and he is subsequently arrested, having been declared insane by Harriet and Lord Tristan. But when his ring is brought to the queen, Harriet is told that he is in fact the son of the unjustly banished Early of Derby, and she rushes back to the farm to relay the news and to ask for Lyonel's hand in marriage. Lyonel at first angrily rejects her, but a replica of Richmond Fair sees the initial encounter between the four characters renewed, giving rise to jubilant celebrations.Made in Berlin in 1944 while Germany was still in a state of 'total war', this recording remains one of the most acclaimed interpretations of the opera. Comprising some of the best singers of that generation, it is astutely conducted by Johannes Schüler -- to whose credit the Staatsoper was able to rebuild its repertoire after 1945 -- and thus represents an invaluable addition to Brilliant Classics' ever-growing opera collection.Other information:- Historical recording of the grand German-Romantic opera Martha by Friedrich von Flotow, made in 1944 at the Funkhaus an der Masurenallee in Berlin.- One of the best ever recordings of this highly attractive opera, starring great German singers like Erna Berger, Else Tegetthoff and Peter Anders.- Sonics are surprisingly good (considering the circumstances), the booklet contains extensive liner notes on the music, the history of this particular performance and a synopsis.- Includes detailed notes on the music and production as well as a synopsis....

Excerpt from The Writings of William Paterson, of Dumfrieshire, and a Citizen of London, Vol. 3 of 3: Founder of the Bank of England, and of the Darien Colony Two Sovereigns, founders of a new line, and distin guished statesmen held him in high esteem. The chief merchants of London, the whole Scottish nation, and the United Parliament, followed his counsel. But it is not on account of what he accomplished so well, that this appeal is made. Its object is rather, to ask the con sideration of some things he proposed in vain for us all and also of what, in his own case, the Government of the time long disregarded - administrative justice - still neglected among us as grossly as it was in the reign of Queen Anne - but which now awaits reforma tion under circumstances of peculiar promise.

Kings & Queens of Scotland Amberley Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The kingdom of Scots was the last of the non-Anglo-Saxon states of Britain to survive as a political entity. Alone of the 'Celtic' nations, it was not absorbed into England by conquest. James VI of Scotland came to the throne of England in 1603, and when union with England finally came in 1707 during the reign of Queen Anne, it was technically on equal terms. This success owed much to the abilities and tenacity of a succession of rulers. The story of the rulers of Scotland's constituent states and then of the united kingdom of Scots from Kenneth MacAlpin onwards is complex and often violent. It is full of rapid reversals of fortune, brilliant and incompetent leadership, family strife, and triumph and tragedy closely intertwined. The obscure earlier history is often as fascinating as the better-known stories of the Bruce and Queen Mary, though less familiar. This saga of a thousand years is a tribute to the qualities of Scotland's rulers.

Królowe rywalki - Nancy Goldstone

Książki & Multimedia > Książki

Opis - "Królowe rywalki" to porywająca i autentyczna opowieść o przebiegłej, żądnej władzy Katarzynie Medycejskiej i wytwornej, namiętnej królowej Margot - matce i córce - których konflikt ukształtował historię XVI-wiecznej Europy. Pochodząca z możnego florentyńskiego rodu Medyceuszy Katarzyna słynęła z makiawelicznej polityki i bezwzględnych ambicji. Dominowała na tronie Francji przez trzydzieści lat, podczas których królestwo było rozdzierane przez starcia polityczne i religijne. Jej najmłodsza córka Małgorzata, powszechnie podziwiana jako jedna z najpiękniejszych kobiet Europy, była upartym, wolnym duchem i jedyną przeciwniczką, której matce nie udało się zastraszyć ani ujarzmić. Pod pretekstem pojednania Katarzyna zaaranżowała małżeństwo żarliwej katoliczki Małgorzaty i jej kuzyna Henryka z Nawarry, przywódcy stronnictwa protestantów. Zaledwie pięć dni po ceremonii zainicjowała brutalną rzeź, podczas której stracili życie wszyscy ślubni goście pana młodego oraz przeszło pięć tysięcy protestantów w całej Francji. Małgorzata - zniewalająca, inteligentna i wielkoduszna - stanęła w obliczu przejmującej decyzji, od której zależał los całego królestwa. Książka "Królowe rywalki" to pełna szczegółów i napisana ze swadą, żywa opowieść o władzy i miłości, wielkiej polityce, dworskich intrygach, zdradach, zbrodniach i wielkich skandalach renesansowej Francji. Nancy Goldstone studiowała historię na Cornell University. Jest również absolwentką Columbia University. Jej zainteresowania skupiają się głównie wokół wybitnych kobiecych postaci średniowiecznej Europy. Wśród napisanych przez nią biografii znajdują się m.in. "Four Queens: The Provenal Sisters Who Ruled Europe", "The Lady Queen: The Notorious Reign of Joanna I, Queen of Naples, Jerusalem, and Sicily" oraz "The Maid and the Queen: The Secret History of Joan of Arc".

Beauty, Sex and Power ANTIQUE COLLECTORS CLUB

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Charles II's reign was a period of revolutionary experimentation: in science, art and sexual etiquette. For the first time in British history, Royal mistresses - such as Nell Gwyn - played an active, public role in court life. Women sensed new possibilities and freedoms, appearing on stage, managing their own financial, matrimonial - and extra-marital - affairs. Encouraged by a licentious King, 'being beautiful' could get you what you wanted. But if beauty was admired and revered, praised by poets and idealised by artists, it was also distrusted and feared, pursued and possessed. Beautiful women were chased and abused, pilloried as whores. This equivocal nature of beauty explains the lives of some of the most charismatic and controversial men and women in British history - those Restoration mistresses and degenerate libertines who lived, loved and died amidst the bespangled luxury of the late Stuart Court. This beautiful book, published to accompany an exhibition at Hampton Court Palace, traces the rise and fall of the 'beautiful revolution' from the Restoration of Charles II to the death of Queen Anne in 1714. It is also a book about beauty itself: its ambiguity, its authority and its transience. This is a timeless tale about our continuing obsession with beauty, celebrity, power and love.

Manuscripts of His Grace the Duke of Portland, Vol. 4 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Manuscripts of His Grace the Duke of Portland, Vol. 4: Preserved at Welbeck Abbey The first volume of the Calendar of Harley letters and papers concluded with the year 1700, immediately after the death of Sir Edward Harley, and a month or two before the first election of his son Robert to the Speakership of the House of Commons. A few of the earlier pages in this volume contain abstracts or copies of other letters written in 1700, which were not forthcoming at the time when the first volume was completed at press, but the main portion of the manuscript material here printed ranges in date between 1701 and the end of May 1711, just after Robert Harley's elevation to the peerage as Earl of Oxford and Mortimer and his appointment to the supreme office of Lord Treasurer. The letters, private and confidential for the most part, addressed to Robert Harley and to members of his family by persons of greater or less eminence during that interesting and eventful period of our history, cannot fail to attract attention; but it will be no surprise to those readers of historical and biographical tastes, to whom the annals of Queen Anne's reign are specially familiar, to find that the main events and the characters of the leading statesmen as conceived by them will need few modifications on account of the new contemporary evidence printed for the first time in the following pages. The attraction of such correspondence, passing during such a well-known period, is rather to be looked for in the minor details of events and in the glimpses we get from it of many interesting persons not necessarily in the front rank of eminence. On one point, however, of some historical and of great literary and biographical importance, this volume may claim to be somewhat of the nature of a revelation by recording the very intimate relations, for public purposes, which existed for many years between Harley and De Foe.

Cleopatra Dismounts - 2869403817

72,48 zł

Cleopatra Dismounts Grove Press / Atlantic Monthly Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Carmen Boullosa's Cleopatra Dismounts tells three versions of the life of Cleopatra. In the first sequence, Marc Antony had just disemboweled himself, knowing they had lost the war against Octavian and believing that Cleopatra was dead. Hugging his corpse, Cleopatra castigates Octavian and history for its betrayal of her, recalling variously how she had herself delivered to Caesar in a roll of carpet, and bore his child (Caesarion); the twins and third child she bore to Marc Antony; the bitterness of the recent military defeat. At this point Diomedes, variously described as an informer and her official chronicler, intercedes, admitting that this version of the story is not true to the brilliant, accomplished woman who was the true Cleopatra really was. Telling of how he betrayed Cleopatra, by altering the histories of her reign and allowing Caesar and others to destroy or change her scrolls, he begins again with the story of Cleopatra's flight from Pompey (the Roman leader who was placed in charge of Cleopatra and her brothers and sisters after Ptolemy Auletes, her father and ruler of Egypt, died). The girl queen (Cleopatra inherited the throne as a teenager) sneaks with several faithful servants out of the palace into a wagon, accompanied by a group of brightly costumed gladiators, on her way to Ascalon. She and her supporters carve the words "Queen of Kings" (Cleopatra's motto in real history) into the boards of the wagon in which she is traveling, and leave it behind when they reach Rome. When they are beset by pirates, Cleopatra stages an elaborate show using some costumes the young gladiator Apollodorus, who has become part of her retinue, helped her buy. She convinces the pirates that she is Isis (a myth which was in reality part of her statecraft). She makes an alliance with them and is taken in peace to Cilicia. The third and longest version of the Cleopatra story is a delightful interlude in which Cleopatra goes live with the Amazons. Cleopatra is at war with the Ruling Council of her husband and brother Ptolemy (she was, historically, forced to marry her brother because she could not rule alone as a woman). The Ruling Council has sent an envoy to summon her to Alexandria to make peace, but when she realizes it is a trap, she flees with her retinue. She arrives in Pelusium, a trade center on the Mediterranean, where many merchants have been stranded by bad weather, and where, as if by magic, she sees a replica of the cart, carved with the words "Queen of Kings," she left behind in Rome. Chased by the "reception committee" of the Ruling Council, she escapes on the back of a magical bull. He carries her across the Mediterranean to the land of the Amazons, who take her in. The Amazons welcome her into their society of women, eschewing marriage and traditional female roles to live as warriors and hunters. They sing her the stories of their joining the Amazons and of the many myths that surround them. She meets a group of aged poets, kidnapped by the Amazons to write verses for them, because they love poetry and music. She learns that one Amazon, Orthea, is in love with a god who has the power of extreme heat and cold, and who caused an earthquake that day. The Amazons go to bed, falling into each other's arms and making love. Though initially disgusted, eventually Cleopatra falls asleep in the protective (and erotic) embrace of Hippolyta, the Amazons' queen. The next day, the Amazons go to battle a group of rebellious male warriors who charge the Amazons and seek, ultimately, to follow the Sirens. Charging them on their horses, driving cattle at them, the Amazons battle the men. One of their prized poets, however, in an act of suicide, surrenders himself to the Sirens, who devour him before everyone. This breaks the spell and the men cease their clamoring to get to the Sirens. Cleopatra sees Orthea consummating her passion for the god, which kills her. The Cyrene male warriors, who withstood the Sirens' onslaught in their fort by plugging the windows with rocks and mud, invite Cleopatra and the Amazons to their court to celebrate their successful protection of so many men. Hippolyta declines but sends Cleopatra with her blessing. Once there, she is joyfully reunited with the gladiator Apollodorus and her faithful maidservant and right hand Charmian. The Cyrenes offer to ally with her against her enemies in Ptolemy's Ruling Council. The alliance between Cleopatra and Caesar (wherein she was smuggled to him rolled up in a carpet, and he assisted her in defeating her enemies in Egypt, part of history) is presaged. At the close of the piece, Cleopatra returns to bid goodbye to the Amazons. She finds them naked, covered in blood, having just sacrificed a horse. Hippolyta is holding the horse's castrated penis. She repudiates her earlier alliance with the Amazons and returns to Cyrene alone, to her military campaign to become the queen history knows.

This title details the riveting rivalries and salacious scandals that have rocked the racing industry in North America. It highlights the top performers and the biggest disappointments. It profiles the people behind the horses, from owners and breeders to trainers and jockeys. Known as the Sport of Kings, horse racing has been around the track, so to speak. Out of the gates as early as ancient Greece's Olympic Games, racing would truly find its footing centuries later when Arabian horses were brought to England during the Crusades. Soon nobles with deep pockets were striking friendly wagers, and by Queen Anne's reign, races with big purses were off and running - and making their way across the pond. In the United States, horse racing has given the world of professional sports - even baseball - a run for its money. In "Horse Racing's Most Wanted[trademark]", readers will have the inside track on the sport that draws more than a million viewers every spring with the Triple Crown. Only eleven horses have swept this illustrious series in its 130-year history. Race alongside these near-mythical champions, the jockeys and trainers who spurred them on, and the countless many that came, raced, but did not conquer. Whether or not it's the Derby, this sport is exciting. It helsp you to learn about the fastest fillies, oddest names, greatest tracks, studliest sires - and more. Author David L. Hudson Jr. returns to "The Most Wanted[trademark] series" with more than fifty lists that cover the sport's surprising upsets, tragic falls, and photofinish races. No matter if you win, place, or show, this book is a sure bet.
