La Damnation de Faust,
Rec
 
 
"This marvellous book fascinated me from the very beginning. I could not put it down. I read it incessantly, during meals, in the theatre, in the street, everywhere." And so it was, following the composer's discovery of Faust Part One in 1828 that Goethe joined Virgil and Shakespeare to form Berlioz's trinity. Without taking the time to catch his breath, he set the verse passages of Grard de Nerval's translation to music and published them under the title Huit scenes de Faust. Eighteen years later, during his travels "in Austria, Hungary, Bohemia and Silesia" he decided to revise and develop the material into La Damnation de Faust, whereupon the same feverish urge took hold of him: "Once underway, I wrote the missing verses as the musical ideas came to me. I composed the score when and where I could, in the carriage, on the train, on steam boats", as if swept away by "the longing of too vast a heart, and a soul thirsting for elusive happiness."

A documentary which celebrates, over the period covering the end of the 1950s and the beginning of the '60s, the phenomenon of the Everly Brothers, arguably the greatest harmony duo the world has witnessed, who directly influenced the greatest and most successful bands of the '60s and '70s - the Beatles, the Stones, the Beach Boys and Simon and Garfunkel to name but a few. Don and Phil Everly's love of music began as children, encouraged by their father Ike. Little Donnie and Baby Boy Phil sang on Ike's early-morning radio shows in Iowa. After leaving school, the brothers moved to Nashville where, under the wing of Ike Everly's friend, the highly talented musician Chet Atkins, Don and Phil signed with Cadence Records. They exploded onto the music scene in 1957 with Bye Bye Love, written by Boudleaux and Felice Bryant. After Bye Bye Love came other hits, notably Wake Up Little Susie, followed by the worldwide smash hit All I Have to Do Is Dream and a long string of other great songs.

Despite enormous commercial success, Warhol struggled to be respected as an artist. At one point his work was accused of killing art. In the 1960s and '70s, pop art was considered almost blasphemous by the establishment. Its quality was at times overshadowed by the cult of Warhol's personality, but we've since come to accept his work as an insightful expression of the tipping point when mass production and consumerism started to dominate the society we live in.

The mysterious, unwavering chant of the English horn, punctuated by notes from the bassoon and the clarinet follows its chromatic descent over 20 bars as if plunging into an unknown world - a world where Iolanta has lived in seclusion since her birth. She is unwittingly blind, since no one has the right to reveal the fact to her. This simple tale of collective denial at the court of Provence, as narrated by the Danish writer Henrik Hertz in his play King Rene's Daughter, was discovered by Tchaikovsky in 1883. However, moved beyond words by the presence of the young actress Elena Konstantinova Leshkovskaya in the title role, it would be another five years before the composer decided to transform it into an opera. The composer found inspiration for his opera in Danish playwright Henrik Hertz's work recounting the romantic story of Iolanta, the blind daughter of King Rene.

The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is the most famous military spectacle in the world, and in 2017 it celebrates its 60th birthday. In this archive rich documentary, Bill Paterson tells the story of how the Edinburgh Tattoo grew from an all Scottish military pageant to an internationally renowned phenomenon, with acts from across the globe joining the traditional pipes and drums and military bands on the esplanade of Edinburgh Castle. Rarely seen archive brings to life a changing post-war world and shows how the public's attitude towards the forces has come full circle since the first official Edinburgh Tattoo in 1950. Conceived in an era when the military were hailed as heroes the show was in instant hit, but its popularity dipped in the '60s with the anti-war hippie generation. In 2017, with support for British soldiers in Afghanistan, the show is more popular than ever. The program features extraordinary performances from some of the 'showstoppers' over the years.

By performing Bach's Christmas Oratorio, Christian Thielemann, the new chief conductor of the Staatskapelle Dresden, fulfilled a long-cherished wish: he always wanted to conduct this work and in Dresden he found the ideal conditions. At the same time he brought it back on the schedule of the Staatskappelle after a pause of over 20 years. The Christmas Oratorio BWV 248 by Johann Sebastian Bach was written for the Christmas season of 1734 in Leipzig. Christian Thielemann leads the Staatskapelle Dresden along with a roster of top soloists: Sibylla Rubens (Soprano), Christa Mayer (Alto), Daniel Behle Tenor) and Florian Boesch (Bass).
