This week, I want to recommend an album that I would place without hesitation among my “desert island” discs: the Berlin Philharmonic’s recording of Brahms’ The Four Symphonies under the Italian conductor Claudio Abbado.
Alexander's Playlist: R. Strauss' Enoch ArdenBy Alexander NeefPosted in Alexander's Playlist

An Update on my Paris AppointmentBy Alexander NeefPosted in Alexander Neef
As you know, around this time last summer I was appointed the next General Director of Opéra national de Paris. At that point, preparations were getting underway for Turandot and Rusalka, and we were busy readying our Monumental campaign to bring Parsifal to our stage.
