Feldman, M: For Bunita Marcus

Feldman, M: For Bunita Marcus


‘I have no problem with notes … none at all’, was Feldman’s cryptic comment on For Bunita Marcus. Throughout the seventy-two-minute duration of this extraordinary work, notes coalesce into wisps of melody which drift softly in and out of an immense silence. You are indeed, as Marc-André Hamelin writes, ‘about to enter a world unlike any other’.

Vier letzte Lieder

arr. Max Wolff (1885-1954)

Rebecca Evans (soprano)

Sie wissen's nicht, Op. 49 No. 5

Nicky Spence (tenor)


Roger Vignoles astutely notes that Strauss’s songs cannot be played ‘without a vivid sense of the orchestral colours and textures that they imply’, so how better to conclude our series of the complete songs than with the piano-accompanied versions of the Vier letzte Lieder? These wondrous valedictions are the summation of a great composer’s love affair with the voice, written at the very end of a long creative life.

John Sheppard: Media vita

John Sheppard: Media vita

& other sacred music


Sheppard, J:

Cantate Mass

Gaude gaude gaude Maria

Media vita


Even by the standards of a time and place—Tudor England—in which masterpieces of choral polyphony appear to have been virtually an everyday occurrence, there is something uniquely and intensely compelling about the surviving works of John Sheppard. This is music designed to be sung by liturgical professionals, and none rise to its demands quite like Westminster Cathedral Choir.

Barokksolistene, Bjarte Eike

'The Alehouse Sessions', curated and devised by Bjarte Eike, is an evolving insight into the music of the English 17th Century tavern. It shines light onto this tumultuous period through Purcell overtures, English sea shanties and Scandinavian folk songs, thrown in for good measure, brilliantly evoking the atmosphere of a raucous port pub in the 1690s. These sessions have already been hailed as "irresistible" [The Times], "superb" [The Scotsman] and "fabulously unrestrained" by The Guardian, "creating the effect of a late night jamming session", said BBC Music Magazine. "The signature of this project is the interaction on stage between the players and the audience...drawing its inspiration from the Shakespearian theatre where there was a direct communication between stage and hall", says Bjarte Eike. 'The 'Alehouse Sessions' will be on tour throughout 2017.

Chris Merrick Hughes: Eirenic Life

Chris Merrick Hughes: Eirenic Life


Hughes, Chris Merrick:

Prelude / NSV

Tenemos Historia

Dily's Dream

The Girl with the Jesus Towel

Exmoor Pony Gavotte

Safe Warm Sun (Calm Ending)


There are two sides to Chris Merrick Hughes. There's the notable producer, most famously of Adam & The Ants, with whom he also played drums, "Tears For Fears, and many other celebrated names. And there's the occasional composer of modern experimental music such as the sublime piano ruminations of his new album "Eirenic Life". Six tracks of deep emotional engagement, from brooding to wistful and even a little agitating, Hughes reckons. From a richly expressive 13-minute piece to a 47-second miniature, united by a desire to locate a place of calm and peace.

A CD version of the LP is included in the package.

Byrd: Cantiones Sacrae

Byrd: Cantiones Sacrae


Byrd:

Cantiones Sacrae 1575

Cantiones Sacrae 1589

Cantiones Sacrae 1591


Choir of New College, Oxford, Edward Higgenbottom

Within the earlier part of his long career William Byrd published three volumes of Cantiones Sacrae – sacred songs to Latin words. The first, in 1575, was a joint venture with his master Thomas Tallis, each composer contributing seventeen items. The others, called by Byrd the ‘Uber primus’ and ‘Uber secundus’ of sacred songs, appeared in 1589 and 1591; they contain respectively sixtee n and twenty-one items (several of them being in two or more se parately numbered sections). The present set of three CD’s contains a generous selection of items from these three collections. The first disc also includes three of Byrd’s keyboard pieces, interspersed with the vocal music.

Strauss, R: Elektra

Strauss, R: Elektra

Recorded: Sofiensaal, Vienna, September 1966


Birgit Nilsson (Elektra), Regina Resnik (Klytämnestra), Marie Collier (Chrystothemis), Gerhard Stolze (Aegisth), Tom Krause (Orest)

Wiener Philharmoniker, Sir Georg Solti

2CD + Blu-ray Audio

Booklet in English, French, German, includes repertoire notes by Michael Kennedy, essay “Myth and Psychoanalysis in Hofmannsthal’s Elektra” by Gerd Uekermann, session photographs, and synopsis and libretto.

“A classic superbly remastered, with Nilsson's searing anti-heroine and Solti building almost unbearable tension. Includes Resnik's raddled Klytaemnestra, Krause's heroic Orest and Marie Collier, at the peak of her career.” BBC Music Magazine, 2007

“Undoubtedly one of the greatest performances ever on record … There are many who believe, as I do, that Elektra was Nilsson's most exciting accomplishment for the gramophone, surpassing even her Brunnhilde. Her unflinching attack, magnificent high Bs and Cs, her subtle shadings … her depth of feeling … coupled with her absolute steadiness of tone, are something we are lucky to hear once in a lifetime … this is possibly Solti's most notable operatic recording. The nervous tension of this work finds a keen empathy in his gripping, taut and highly detailed conducting, to which the VPO responded with their finest playing, and every strand of the score, given—for once—complete, is caught by John Culshaw's recording.” Gramophone Magazine, 1986

Strauss, R: Salome

Strauss, R: Salome


Birgit Nilsson (Salome), Eberhard Wächter (Jokanaan), Gerhard Stolze (Herod), Grace Hoffman (Herodias)

Wiener Philharmoniker, Sir Georg Solti

2CD + Blu-ray Audio

Includes repertoire notes by Michael Kennedy (English), Jean-Claude Poyet (French) and Hans-Ulrich Fuss (German); session photographs; notes by producer John Culshaw about the recording and the Decca “Sonicstage” approach, and synopsis and libretto all in English, French, German

“Forty-four years after its initial release, Decca’s Salome holds a leading position in the discography due to Solti’s visceral conducting, and a strong cast centred on Nilsson’s commanding necrophiliac princess.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2012

“[A] very clear recording of the orchestra … all the detail of the extraordinary scoring, so often obscured in the opera house, can be easily heard throughout … The VPO answer Solti's extreme demands with their most aristocratic playing … Nilsson's account of the title role remains another towering monument to her tireless singing.” Gramophone Magazine, 1985

“Nilsson is splendid throughout; she is hard-edged as usual but, on that account, more convincingly wicked...Of this score Solti is a master. He has rarely sounded so abandoned in a recorded performance...Waechter makes a clear, young-sounding Jokanaan.” Penguin Guide, 2010 Edition
