WHEN PUNK MEETS CLASSICAL
In 1990, Nigel Kennedy garnered attention with his recording of Vivaldi's Four Seasons. Originally anticipated to sell just 30,000 copies, the record became the most popular classical record of all time with more than three million copies sold.
GRANDSEIGNEUR DU PIANO
Arthur Rubinstein steps off the stage and gives a musical retrospective of his life. In April 1975, he enchanted audiences a final time with a performance of the celebrated piano concertos that he had made his own, and of course Chopin was on the programme.
ONE OF THE GREATEST SCANDALS IN OPERA
The interpretation of Wagner’s “Ring” by conductor Pierre Boulez and director Patrice Chéreau went down in history as the “Centenary Ring”: applauds for 90 minutes and 101 curtain calls.
When sopranos Jessye Norman and Kathleen Battle perform at Carnegie Hall on 18 March 1990, with the aim of creating a tribute to the African American musical tradition, an aura of history pervades America’s most renowned concert hall.
This series is dedicated to stellar musical events that gripped the whole world and remained unforgettable until today – with touching interviews of today’s artists, celebrities and eyewitnesses. All episodes distributed by C Major Entertainment.
