Schindler's List: Theme


Best-selling Scottish virtuoso Nicola Benedetti moves dramatically from the 18th-century world of Italia to the 20th-century world of cinema.

As a long-time champion of the lush Violin Concerto by the great stage and screen composer Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Nicola Benedetti has chosen to build a programme around his late Romantic concerto masterpiece.

This unique collection of violin classics, written specifically for the movies, includes the poignant lament from Schindler’s List.

Dmitri Shostakovich, recognised as the Soviet Union’s greatest film composer, is represented by the beloved Gadfly Romance, as well as the similarly lyrical Andante from the film The Counterplan

The contemporary British cinema is represented by the haunting main theme and specially-composed Fantasy for Violin & Orchestra from the 2004 hit Ladies in Lavender

“Benedetti decorates this repertoire with gleaming high-register pirouettes, plus vibrato throbs and hesitations that never descend into schmaltz...Such good taste is a pleasure, though her discretion can make the music paler than necessary.” The Times, 24th August 2012 ***

“The lush, romantic sound of Hollywood – 1930s to the present – suits her well” The Observer, 26th August 2012

“Benedetti's decision to place [the Concerto] in this particular context actually serves to enhance its musical stature. Certainly her performance is beautifully honed with a particularly atmospheric account of the central Andante...she has an instinctive grasp of the ebb and flow of Korngold's melodic lines and avoids the obvious temptation of becoming overtly mannered in order to intensify the musical expression.” BBC Music Magazine, November 2012 ****

“Benedetti’s latest album has lots to commend it...Karabits and the Bournemouth Symphony provide full-blooded backing. Extracts from two Shostakovich film scores are indecently enjoyable” The Arts Desk, 27th October 2012

“her broadly romantic approach and genuine affection for this Hollywood-inspired concerto shine out...Benedetti is joined by star accordionist Ksenija Sidorova in a show-stopping performance which will have you on your feet! The warm acoustic of the Decca recording comes in appropriate widescreen sound.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2012

Bruno Walter’s Mahler: The Early New York Recordings

Bruno Walter’s Mahler: The Early New York Recordings


Mahler:

Symphony No. 1 in D major 'Titan'

Symphony No. 2 'Resurrection'


New York Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra & Westminster Choir, Bruno Walter

This account of the “Resurrection” is notably more rhetorical and dramatic than Walter’s several later recordings.

Bruno Walter had a missionary zeal for Mahler’s multidimensional music.

These are two previously unreleased recordings.

“The notion that Bruno Walter’s Mahler was “soft-centred” used to be a commonplace of English criticism...These [performances], previously unissued and taken from broadcasts from Carnegie Hall, New York, in 1942, confirm that his approach was anything but soft. They bristle with fierce energy and whiplash playing. No 1 is particularly impressive.” Sunday Times, 26th August 2012

“Rhetoric and searing drama charge the first movement with unprecedented levels of intensity...As to the closing minutes, no performance in my experience quite equals them for a sense of unbridled exhilaration, the Westminster Choir singing their hearts out like no other on disc. It'll likely move you to tears and I have no hesitation whatever in naming this the pre-eminent 'historic' Mahler Second” Gramophone Magazine, December 2012
