Mozart: Il sogno di Scipione, K126


Stuart Jackson (Scipione), Klara Ek (Costanza), Soraya Mafi (Fortuna), Krystian Adam (Publio), Robert Murray (Emilio), Chiara Skerath (soprano - two licenza arias)

Classical Opera, Ian Page

Classical Opera continue their continuing complete Mozart opera recording series with the one-act dramatic serenade 'Il sogno di Scipione', K126.

Composed in 1771 as a celebratory homage to Prince Archbishop Sigismund Schrattenbach of Salzburg, the Archbishop died before the piece could be performed. In the spring of 1772 Mozart amended the work so that it could be used in honour of Schrattenbach’s successor, Hieronymus Colloredo – the only necessary change was to alter the name of the dedicatee in the final recitative.

The story of Scipio’s Dream takes place in c.148 BC, while the celebrated Roman general is a guest in the palace of his ally Massinissa, King of Numidia (in modern day Tunisia). As Scipio falls into a deep sleep, he dreams that the allegorical figures of Fortuna (Fortune) and Costanza (Constancy) appear to him in Elysium and demand that he should choose one of them to follow for the rest of his days.

Mozart: Flute Quartets Nos. 1-4 (complete)

Mozart: Flute Quartets Nos. 1-4 (complete)


Aurele Nicolet (flute)

Münchner Streichtrio

Serene, almost heavenly in mood, the four masterpieces stand alone in Mozart's oeuvre. This is the only time he combined flute and solo strings - to bewitchingly elegant effect, be it in invention, emotion, or formal diversity. Each movement has a particular character, for instance the Andantino con Variazioni in the C major Quartet, a delightful cycle lasting over 11 minutes, or the Adagio in the D major Quartet, filled with the 'sweetest melancholy, perhaps the loveliest accompanied solo ever written for the flute' (Alfred Einstein).The great flautist Aurèle Nicolet (1926-2016), for years solo flute of the Berliner Philharmoniker, possessed a characteristically transparent tone that made him the ideal interpreter of Mozart: 'A tone of pure silver' is how the Neue Zürcher Zeitung described it in its obituary of Aurèle Nicolet. It is a singular stroke of luck that this recording was made with the Münchner Streichtrio, whose unique style was moulded by violinist Ana Chumachenco, now an internationally renowned pedagogue.

Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue & Catfish Row

Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue & Catfish Row


Gershwin:

Rhapsody in Blue

Porgy and Bess Suite (Catfish Row)

Summertime (from Porgy and Bess)

By Strauss

The Man I Love

My man's gone now (from Porgy and Bess)

I Got Rhythm (from Girl Crazy & An American in Paris)


George Gershwin composed his Rhapsody in Blue in 1924. In the same year, he launched his collaboration with his brother Ira, which produced countless songs. He never achieved his ambition of studying with Maurice Ravel, but was always enthralled by the symphonic poem and the concerto. His masterpieces, such as An American in Paris and the opera Porgy and Bess, greatly enriched the American musical heritage. Jos van Immerseel has always been fascinated by Gershwin, but it was the appearance of a new edition of the scores that prompted the pianist and conductor to record this extensive homage. Thanks to the very latest research undertaken by the University of Michigan, the Library of Congress and the Gershwin Estate, he and his companions in Anima Eterna have got closer than ever before to the composer’s intentions, making use of the appropriate instruments.

Returning to their roots with key works from the French repertory: the single quartets of Maurice Ravel and Claude Debussy and the Chanson perpétuelle of Ernest Chausson, in which they are accompanied by the mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey, who recently joined Alpha, and the pianist Alphonse Cemin.

The Quatuor Van Kuijk gives these works all their youthful impetuosity.

The quartet is already a BBC New Generation Artist, having won First Prize and the Haydn and Beethoven Prizes at the Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition, and First Prize and the Audience Prize at the Trondheim International String Quartet Competition.
