Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Berlin Philharmonic welcomes 2011 with stars Garan?a and Dudamel blazing bright.

The 2010 New Year's Eve concert from Berlin frames two of the most prominent stars on DG's roster in the gilt-edged splendor these two young masters merit: "One in a million" mezzo (The Independent) El?na Garan?a, and the world's most sizzling conductor, Gustavo Dudamel.

Recorded live, this gala performance sparkles with a selection of arias and orchestral works that include excerpts from one of El?na Garan?a's most celebrated roles, Bizet's Carmen, and a more reflective, lyric role, Marguerite in Berlioz's Damnation of Faust.

As well as providing world class accompaniment, the Berlin Philharmonic makes a
Read more stirring contribution to the program with the overture to Berlioz's thrilling Roman Carnival and excerpts from Manuel de Falla's ballet, The Three-Cornered Hat.
