Bizet: Carmen & L'arlésienne Suites

Bizet: Carmen & L'Arlésienne Suites


Bizet:

Carmen Suite No. 1

Carmen Suite No. 2

L'Arlesienne Suite No. 1

L'Arlésienne Suite No. 2


Despite the scandal it created when first staged in 1875, Carmen has subsequently become one of the world’s most popular operas. The love affair at its heart shocked contemporary audiences but the music is imperishably vibrant and exciting – so much so that, after the composer’s death, his friend Ernest Guiraud arranged two suites from the opera. Here the Toreador’s Song and the graphically sensuous Seguidilla and Habanera dances are heard in all their orchestral glory. The two suites from L’Arlésienne contain music of great charm and refined elegance.

Sonata in E flat Major, Op. 23 No. 3

Sonata in C Major, Op. 34 No. 1

Fantasia con variazioni


Juan Carlos Rodríguez (piano)

Muzio Clementi’s legacy to pianists is recognised as highly significant for his introduction of a new virtuosity and exploration of the possibilities of the then recently invented fortepiano. His three Sonatas, Op. 23 were published in London in 1790, their style reflecting Haydn’s tremendous popularity in the city at that time. The later Sonata, Op. 34 offers more dramatic contrast, sparkling with chains of thirds, hand-crossing and much use of octaves, comparable resources also being explored in the Fantasia con variazioni on the familiar song ‘Au clair de la lune’.

Symphony No. 7 in C sharp minor, Op. 131

The Love for Three Oranges: March

The Love for Three Oranges - Scherzo

Lieutenant Kijé Suite, Op. 60


Orquestra Sinfônica do Estado de São Paulo, Marin Alsop

Sergey Prokofiev’s final years were clouded by ill-health, and the Seventh Symphony was his last significant work, full of poignant nostalgia and restrained but deeply expressed emotion. The Love for Three Oranges consolidated Prokofiev’s reputation in the West in the 1920s, both this and the satirical tale of Lieutenant Kijé producing two of his most popular suites. This is the final volume of the acclaimed cycle of Prokofiev’s Symphonies with the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra conducted by Marin Alsop.

Saint-Saëns: Cello Concertos Nos. 1 & 2

Saint-Saëns: Cello Concertos Nos. 1 & 2


Saint-Saëns:

Cello Concerto No. 1 in A minor, Op. 33

Cello Concerto No. 2 in D minor, Op. 119

Allegro Appassionato in B minor Op. 43

Suite in D minor, Op. 16

Romance in F major, Op. 36

Le carnaval des animaux: Le Cygne


Composed during a period of social readjustment in post-war France, the First Cello Concerto marked Saint-Saëns acceptance as a composer among the establishment, and has long been one of his most admired works. Recognition for the fiendishly technical Second Cello Concerto took longer, although its tranquil central movement contains one of the most sublime melodies Saint-Saëns ever wrote. The supremely famous Le Cygne appears alongside the less well-known Bach-inspired Suite in D minor, and with the inclusion of the Romance this programme contains Saint-Saënss complete works for cello and orchestra. Cellist Gabriel Schwabe has appeared on the Naxos label with Brahmss two Cello Sonatas (8.573489): He counts among the best cellists of his generation (Concerti), Schwabe carefully molds every single note. I wish the tones could stay a bit longer just to be able to marvel at them better (Fono Forum)

Havergal Brian: Symphonies Nos. 8, 21 & 26

Havergal Brian: Symphonies Nos. 8, 21 & 26


Brian:

Symphony No. 8 in B flat minor

Symphony No. 21 in E flat

Symphony No. 26


New Russia State Symphony Orchestra, Alexander Walker

Each of the three symphonies on this recording represents a significant milestone in Havergal Brian’s long musical journey, and each demonstrates the breadth of his symphonic approach. No. 8 was the first of Brian’s symphonies to be performed and is one of his most gripping and unpredictable, full of sonic invention. Behind the more apparently genial and expansive No. 21 lies profound emotional complexity, while No. 26 embodies elements of a divertimento though it retains disquieting outbursts. Gramophone wrote of the previous Brian recording by these forces (8573408): “The New Russia State Symphony Orchestra do the music proud.” This issue completes the commercial recording of all 32 of Brian’s symphonies.

In the year of the 25th anniversary of Piazzolla's death, Argentinean-born violinist Tomás Cotik and Chinese- American pianist Tao Lin follow their critically acclaimed Tango Nuevo [8.573166] with more of Piazzollas richest and most exciting compositions. These fresh adaptations for mostly two or three musicians preserve and celebrate the Nuevo tango masters legacy. I think that lovers of tango music will definitely want this fascinating disc, wrote Fanfare of Tango Nuevo.

Cello Concertino No. 2 in G, Op. 41

Cello Concertino No. 1 in C, Op. 7

Cello Concertino No. 3 in A minor, Op. 46

Konzertstück in D minor, Op. 10


Martin Rummel (cello) & Mari Kato (piano)

Mari Kato

Based in Leipzig with a lengthy career as principal cellist of the Gewandhaus Orchestra, Julius Klengel was a renowned soloist and revered the world over as a great interpreter and pedagogue, whose works are still in use by students today. Composed in true Romantic style, the three Concertinos were written for teaching purposes, the first coming closest to the idea of a mini-concerto but all having virtuoso elements and expressive and lyrical central movements. The Konzertstück, Op. 10 gives the piano equal status with the cello to create a thrilling conclusion to any programme.

Pauline Haas (harp)

The harp is often said to be the Romantic instrument par excellence, and for this recording the award-winning young harpist Pauline Haas takes the listener on a journey through the repertoire, from the melancholic balladry of John Thomass The Minstrels Adieu to his Native Land to the stunning virtuosity of Albert Zabels Fantasy. Alongside Smetanas perennial favourite Die Moldau she presents her own arrangements, which include the apotheosis of romantic longing, the Liebestod from Wagners Tristan und Isolde.

Marta y Maria, Op. 4


Néstor Torres (flute)

Composer and Latin GRAMMY®-winning flautist Néstor Torres has inspired a generation of composers to write music that has made vivid contributions to the instrument’s repertoire. This disc represents his first foray into classical recording and his own unique fusion of Caribbean virtuosity and classical training can be savoured in his own composition, Marta y María. Tania León’s del Caribe, soy! encapsulates the pulsing rhythms, vibrant colour and improvisatory elements that represent the key features of the album and contrasts beautifully with the seductive allure and expressive depth of Miguel del Águila’s Miami Flute Suite.
