Thomas Hengelbrock conducts Bach's Magnificat

Bach's Magnificat was written for Christmas Day 1723, to celebrate Mary's joy after the Annunciation. Mendelssohn's Vom Himmel Hoch also celebrates the birth of Christ, in a style that references Bach's. Thomas Hengelbrock traces affinities between both composers: a passion for moral song, the divine, Christ, and light.

Mario Lanza Torna a Surriento

Born Alfred Arnold Cocozza in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he was exposed to classical singing at an early age by his Abruzzese-Molisan Italian parents. His mother, Maria Lanza, was from Tocco da Casauria a province of Pescara in the region of Abruzzo. His father, Antonio Cocozza, was from the town of Filignano a province of Isernia in the region of Molise. By age 16, his vocal talent had become apparent. Starting out in local operatic productions in Philadelphia for the YMCA Opera Company while still in his teens, he later came to the attention of longtime (1924–49) principal Boston Symphony conductor Serge Koussevitzky. In 1942, Koussevitzky provided young Cocozza with a full student scholarship to the Berkshire Music Center at Tanglewood, Massachusetts. Reportedly, Koussevitzky would later tell him, "Yours is a voice such as is heard once in a hundred years."[8]
