de Lassus: Responsories For Holy Week

de Lassus: Responsories For Holy Week


Ars Cantica, Marco Berrini

Around 1580 Lassus composed a four-voice setting of the eighteen Responsories for the second and third Nocturnes of Holy Week, probably intended for the services in the private chapel of his employer, Wilhelm V, Duke of Bavaria. In these miniature dramas Lassus skilfully supports the text, as was then required by the Council of Trent, illustrating the human tragedy of the Easter story with exquisite music that is all the more moving for its restraint.

Arnold Griller: Orchestral Music, Vol. 1

Arnold Griller: Orchestral Music, Vol. 1

Works for Chamber Orchestra


Griller:

Ensemble Seventeen

Concerto for Clarinet & String Orchestra

Distant Villages


Denis Myasnikov (clarinet)

Musica Viva Chamber Orchestra, Alexander Walker

The English composer Arnold Griller (b. 1937), son of the violinist Sidney Griller, grew up in London, surrounded by some of the worlds best-known musicians. In spite of this propitious beginning to his career, his considerable output remains largely unknown he has had to wait for his 80th birthday this year for a recording of his orchestral music. This first volume (another is in preparation) presents three of his major works. Grillers music turns out to be highly individual, often moving unexpectedly between moods of excitement and drive, wry humour and deep emotion. Grillers influences and interests range widely, from Domenico Scarlatti to such twentieth-century masters as Milhaud (his main teacher) and Stravinsky, and on to composers of today. Melodic lyricism, rhythmic intensity, textural clarity and contrapuntal complexity combine with a generosity of musical ideas to produce a unique style and voice.

Liszt: Songs for Bass Voice and Piano

Liszt: Songs for Bass Voice and Piano


Jared Schwartz (bass) & Mary Dibbern (piano)

Throughout Liszt’s long career, his songs – perhaps the most neglected part of his enormous output – took a radical approach to form, eschewing convention in search of a sincere musical response to each text. His free-spirited creativity meant that a single song would often call on a range of stylistic devices, among them bel canto vocal lines, unaccompanied recitative, orchestrally conceived piano textures and audacious harmonic procedures. This first recording of Liszt songs by a bass voice brings out both the power and poetry of his remarkable imagination.

Elgar: The New England Connection

Elgar: The New England Connection


Chadwick:

Symphonic Sketches

Elgar:

Enigma Variations, Op. 36


This new release from the BBC National Orchestra of Wales presents Edward Elgar’s Enigma Variations and George Chadwick’s Symphonic Sketches. George Chadwick and Edward Elgar lived almost parallel lives on opposite sides of the Atlantic. Born in rural Massachusetts in 1854, Chadwick was Elgar’s senior by three years. Elgar, born in Worcester in 1857, was to become everything Chadwick aspired to be yet wasn’t. Successful and respected as an academic, Chadwick was appointed director of Boston’s New England Conservatory in 1897. Whilst he helped establish the NEC as a major international conservatory, it was recognition as a great composer that he sought most. Elgar, on the other hand, maintained a lifelong suspicion of academics and yet rose to become one of the most venerated composers of his era.

Maria Krestinskaya (baroque violin: Giovanni Paolo Maggini, Brescia 1627), Grigory Krotenko (bassetto: Giovanni Paolo Maggini Brescia 1600, restored by Alexey Vorobyev, Moscow 2016), Imbi Tarum (harpsichord: after Giusti by John Byron Will, Portland 1983; organ: Norbert Kirchner 1995)

The rising Russian star violinist Maria Krestinskaya who has made recent collaborations with artists like Michael Chance, Paul O’Dette, Stephen Stubbs, Phoebe Carrai, Kristian Bezuidenhout, Bob van Asperen and Dmitry Sinkowsky, who all acknowledge her great potential, presents her debut CD as a solo artist. The six sonatas with continuo by Domenico dall’Oglio, probably a pupil of Giuseppe Tartini, are very attractive miniatures which allow for a wide variety of nuances, well suited to Krestinskaya’s virtuosic, yet highly sensitive, playing style.
