Rimsky-Korsakov: Romances

Rimsky-Korsakov: Romances


Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov was a member of the young Russian school formed by “The Mighty Handful” along with Balakirev, César Cui, Modest Mussorgsky, and Alexander Borodin. Although his songs are not very frequently performed, his songs with piano accompaniment or, as the master himself termed them, the Romances, are a substantial element of his overall oeuvre. RimskyKorsakov’s song artistry is first and foremost a musical one. In the miniaturistic formats of his romances he fundamentally endeavored to interrelate the poetic statement and vocal interpretation. He was never interested in illuminating the darkest and innermost corners of psychic labyrinths with the light of his artistry. The mezzo-soprano Marina Prudenskaya, who was born in St. Petersburg, interprets our selection of his songs in the original Russian.

Tansman:

Sextuor - Ballet-bouffe (1923)

Łukasz Borowicz

Bric à brac - Ballet en 3 tableaux (1935)

Wojciech Michniewski


The stage had fascinated Alexander Tansman ever since his youth. The libretto for Sextuor, the first work heard here, was written by Alexandre Arnoux. Sextuor is a dramatic love story of the passion shared by a violin and a violoncello for a flute, and Tansman believed that here he had found ideal material for a ballet. And so it was: the work composed in 1923 was performed with great international success and made the young composer famous. Although he suffered a great loss when his mother died in 1935, Tansman found the strength to write a larger theatrical work. The result was the ballet Bric à brac. The director of the Grand Opéra in Paris wanted this ballet set between stalls of wood and corrugated iron at a flea market near the Porte de Clignancourt for a premiere during the 1939/40 season. However, the outbreak of World War II thwarted these plans. After long negotiations the work finally premiered on 30 November 1958.

Abel, C F: Symphonies (6), Op. 7

Abel, C F: Symphonies (6), Op. 7


What makes Abels symphonies so unique among those of his contemporaries is not their first movements in what was later known as the »sonata form« or their last movements, which without exception are formed, usually in rondo structure, by dances of folk character like fast contredanses and minuets, but rather their slow middle movements, mostly with the heading »Andante« and frequently »sempre piano« in dynamics, which speak a new and thoroughly individual musical language.

Berit Johansen Tange (piano)

Apocalyptic and paradisiac visions of good and evil meet aphoristic miniatures of nine small, mainly malignant insects. The rousing graphic imagery of Rued Langgaard (1893–1952) is on full display in this third volume of piano works by the deeply original Danish composer. Including three world premiere recordings, Berit Johansen Tange captures the mysterious forces, poetic gracefulness and absurd hysteria that are all part of Langgaard’s both dark and wondrous expression

Marianna Shirinyan (piano)

His instrument may have been the violin, but Niels W. Gade (181790) was a great admirer of piano virtuosos Felix Mendelssohn and Robert Schumann. In fact, the great Danish Romantic composer left behind a collection of piano works that inspired both professionals and amateurs. Breathing new life into a selection of these, Armenian-Danish pianist Marianna Shirinyan performs Gades poetic Aquarelles, the almost orchestral Sonata in E minor, four chopinesque Fantasy Pieces and the little Chanson danoise, here in its first recording.

Deus in adiutorium meum


Celebrating Monteverdi’s 450th anniversary - a key new release in this Monteverdi year.

Forming a response to Monteverdi’s timeless masterpiece Vespro della Beata Vergine (1610), these Other Vespers are centred around works from the end of his life, in 1640 following 23 years as maestro at St. Mark’s Venice. Including the celebrated Beatus vir.

A truly Venetian Vespers, arranged in a setting that could have been performed in Venice in Monteverdi’s time, with his sacred choral works alongside music of his contemporaries.

Culminating in Giovanni Gabrieli's powerful and moving Magnificat in 14 parts: for three separate 'choirs'.

To coincide with I Fagiolini's 30th anniversary: the ensemble has always enjoyed a close association with Monteverdi.

Robert Hollingworth is a Monteverdi specialist; this is an authentic take on the repertoire, including the incredible soundworld of the cornetto muto alongside four male voices of I Fagiolini, in the Palestrina/Bovicelli Ave verum corpus - the first recording of such a reconstruction.
