The Last Island

The Last Island

Chamber Music by Peter Maxwell-Davies


Davies, Peter Maxwell:

The Last Island for string sextet

A Postcard from Sanday for solo piano

String Trio

Two Nocturnes for piano quartet

Lullaby for violin and cello

Oboe Quartet

A Birthday Card for Jennifer for solo piano

Sonata for Violin and Piano

String Quartet Movement


Hebrides Ensemble

Peter Maxwell Davies’s later music powerfully evokes the isolated majesty of his Orkney island home, yet it also bears witness to his talent for friendship – to his associations, both personal and musical, with friends and supporters in Scotland and further afield. Among the warmest was with William Conway, whom Davies first encountered as principal cellist of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and for whom he wrote the demanding solo part of his second Strathclyde Concerto. And it was for the Hebrides Ensemble, founded by Conway in 1991, that Davies wrote several of the most impressive and personal works to arise from his late engagement with chamber music – a genre in which he had previously worked rarely, here revealed as the 'last island' of this remarkable and prolific composer's output. On its second Delphian album, the Ensemble reciprocates Davies's friendship with definitive performances of works from his last decade, including the single completed movement of a string quartet left unfinished at his death.

Christophe Colomb

La Perle du Brésil: Overture

Le Jugement dernier

Mélodies orientales: excerpts

Symphony No. 3


Brussels Philharmonic, Flemish Radio Choir, Hervé Niquet

Each volume in the ‘Portraits’ series is devoted to a French composer who has now largely been forgotten. With performances by many talentes artists, it presents a panorama of his works. The ‘Portrait’ of Félicien David aims to complement the discography already available with world premiere recordings of the composer’s works.

Among these are a glimpse of his orchestral output, with the Symphony no. 3 and the Overture to his opéra comique La Perle du Brésil, the work that really launched David on his operatic career. But it is above all Christophe Colomb (1847) that deserves mention, for this ode-symphonie with speaker was an ambitious follow-up to the success of Le Désert, performed at the Théâtre Italien some years earlier. Nevertheless, this anthology does not forget that Félicien David was also a figure of the salons, admired for his intimate music and especially his songs. The programme therefore offers a chance to

discover excerpts from the Mélodies orientales for solo piano, a selection of romances in the style of the 1840s, and the very rare early motets for chorus in varied scorings. The culmination of this Portrait is the restoration of Le Jugement dernier, which was intended as the concluding apotheosis of the opera Herculanum, but was finally deleted and has never been published until

today.

The Hilliard Ensemble, Kees Boeke Consort, Soloists from the Knabenchor Hannover, London Baroque

The blend between the voices is finely controlled, the tone mellow and the tuning spectacularly accurate, giving rise to an organ-like sonority that is genuinely thrilling,” wrote Gramophone magazine, praising the Hilliard Ensemble’s four singers, who excelled in an extraordinary variety of music over a 40-year career. This seven-CD collection extends from the Middle Ages to the Baroque, offering music by composers from England, France, Flanders and Germany.

“Nicholas Angelich was born to play Brahms,” was the Daily Telegraph’s judgement on the American-born, French trained pianist, hose artistry is at the heart of this collection of concertos, chamber music and solo pieces. His collaboration with Renaud and Gautier Capuçon was praised by Gramophone as “sure to kindle anyone’s enthusiasm for Brahms …The way they are able to strike a balance between Brahms’s energetic flow of ideas, his strongly delineated structures and his lyrical intensity is most satisfying.”

La Cetra Barockorchester & Vokalensemble Basel, Andrea Marcon

Andrea Marcon and La Cetra Barockorchester & Vokalensemble Basel sparkle in this new release of Handel's forgotten masterpiece Parnasso in testa, recorded shortly before their hugely successful Netherlands premiere of the opera in November 2016.

Handel’s sumptuous work from 1734 celebrates the marriage of Princess Anne and Prince William of Orange. It's packed with breathtaking arias, duets and choruses, all written with verve, drama and Handel’s sense of occasion. The renowned Baroque specialist Andrea Marcon gives it the attention it deserves with an outstanding vocal cast around his period-instrument group La Cetra. Opera News described Robin Johansen's performance in the Netherlands premiere as "[a] revelation ... superbly agile and fresh-sounding—but also expressive. The demanding role of Apollo is undertaken by rising star David Hansen, described by The New Yorker as "...a pure-voiced young Australian who is typical of a new breed of matinee-idol countertenors". And a performance at the Handel Festival in 2014 drew rave reviews "Altogether, with the virtuosic playing of the inspired Cetra orchestra under Maestro Marcon, so finely balanced with the stunning chorus and soloists, this concert performance of an infrequently performed serenata became ... one of the high points of the festival." (Opera con Brio)
