Baker, C:

The Glass Bead Game

Leonard Slatkin

Awaking the Winds

Leonard Slatkin

Shadows: Four Dirge-Nocturnes

Leonard Slatkin

The Mystic Trumpeter

Hans Vonk


Claude Baker is a much-honored composer whose music is alive with connections and inter-related ideas. The Glass Bead Game feasts on dreamlike associations and, through deliberately invoking other composers’ music, thrilling collage. Awaking the Winds is, by contrast, ‘absolute’ music, and in a resonant single-movement structure. The haiku is explored in Shadows in which parallels between written texts and music are accomplished with great refinement and poignancy. Inspired by Walt Whitman’s poetry, The Mystic Trumpeter offers a commentary that includes musical quotation and deft tone-painting.

“Baker clearly relishes the sound of the orchestra; his writing often falls gratefully on the ear...The performances here are everything that could be wished...the players clearly relish the always idiomatic music they are given to play.” MusicWeb International, January 2013

Adams, J: Scheherazade.2

Adams, J: Scheherazade.2


“Josefowicz, who has been a champion of the composer’s music for decades, gives a performance here that explains why Adams has such faith in her: suave and sensual, yet assertive and full of longing. The St Louis Symphony play with authority under David Robertson and the recording is beautifully balanced.” Gramophone Magazine, December 2016

“The textures, with the extra spice of cimbalom thrown into the mix, are never less than beguiling, and violinist Leila Josefowicz throws herself into a generous role like a serious actor in Shakespeare” BBC Music Magazine, January 2017 ****

Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue, An American in Paris

Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue, An American in Paris


Gershwin:

Piano Concerto in F major

Lullaby for Strings

Cuban Overture

Second Rhapsody

Promenade (Walking the Dog)

arr. for orchestra

Rhapsody in Blue

I Got Rhythm Variations

Porgy and Bess Suite (Catfish Row)


This release set presents the reissue of a Classic, the golden standard set by the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra conducted by Leonard Slatkin of orchestral music by George Gershwin.

Included are the Rhapsody in Blue, An American in Paris, the Piano Concerto, Catfish Row, Cuban Overture and “I got rhythm variations”.

Slatkin and his St Louis forces play with infectious drive and brilliance, without overdoing the “jazzy” character, a perfect symbiosis of classical and jazz. Pianist Jeffrey Siegel has the right stamina, bravura, wit and guts.

Originally released on the legendary VOX label.

“The performances are consistently brilliant. Siegel takes a fairly relaxed approach in the Piano Concerto - as he does in the Rhapsody in Blue - but his playing has an authenticity about it…the standard of orchestral playing is of the highest order and Slatkin and his musicians are in inspired and spectacular form…if there’s a better set of Gershwin’s orchestral music on the market then I’ve yet to hear it.” MusicWeb International, May 2015

Tchaikovsky: LAC (after Swan Lake)

Tchaikovsky: LAC (after Swan Lake)

Recorded live at Grimaldi Forum, Monaco, 2013


Tchaikovsky:

Swan Lake, Op. 20 (excerpts)


Anja Behrend (Le Cynge Blanc), April Ball (Le Cynge Noir), Stephan Bourgond (Le Prince), Alvaro Prieto (The King), Mimoza Koike (The Queen), Jeroen Verbruggen (Le Confident du Prince), Bernice Coppieters (Sa Majesté la Nuit)

Les Ballets de Monte Carlo & Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra, Leonard Slatkin

Jean-Christophe Maillot has re-worked Swan Lake with the writer Jean Rouaud (1990 Prix Goncourt winner) to bring a new drama to this pillar of the classic repertoire. This new adaptation, filmed in a special studio-setting at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco, brings a modern-day relevance to the timeless story of Siegfried and Odette. Designed by leading visual artist Ernest Pignon-Ernest, with costumes by Philippe Guillotel, and performed to a specially conceived and mastered soundtrack of Tchaikovsky’s score performed by the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra, directed by Leonard Slatkin, the production has been hailed as ‘outstanding’ (Le Figaro), while the Jerusalem Post asserted ‘Swan Lake will never be the same after the tempestous Lac’. This film of Lac won the top award at the 2103 Golden Prague, as ‘Best Performing Arts Program’, where it was described as ‘A ravishing stage production offering the spectator a thrilling interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece through contemporary dance’.
