Beethoven: Symphonies Nos. 1-9 (complete)

Beethoven: Symphonies Nos. 1-9 (complete)


Michael Gielen celebrates his 85th birthday in July of this year and the sum of his artistry is reected in this Beethoven cycle. This special commemorative collection features the maestro’s most recent Beethoven recordings from 1997-2000.

“In my opinion, all things considered, Gielen’s is now the most consistently satisfying Beethoven symphony set available, from any era...A firm sense of the work’s architecture, or structural integrity, is always juxtaposed with an absolute treasure trove of surprisingly rendered inner detail” MusicWeb International, 12th August 2013

Bruckner: Symphony No. 9 in D Minor

Bruckner: Symphony No. 9 in D Minor


Norrington has released a series of acclaimed Bruckner performances on CD. His fresh approach injects a healthy dose of “worldliness” into these works.

“Where Norrington is fearless is in Bruckner’s on-the-spot shifts of tempo or key.” Gramophone

“As might be expected, Sir Roger employs instruments of the day, with a head-count that Bruckner might have expected and an appropriate seating plan. Bowing, phrasing and articulation are all in keeping with the manners of period and there's the usual Norrington embargo on vibrato...Excellent sound and, I suppose, good to have as food for thought, which is invariably what Norrington is all about.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2012

Schumann: Requiem, Der Königssohn & Nachtlied

Schumann: Requiem, Der Königssohn & Nachtlied


Schumann:

Requiem in D flat major, Op. 148

Nachtlied for chorus & orchestra, Op. 108

Der Königssohn, Op. 116


Ingeborg Danz, Christoph Pregardien, Sibylla Rubens, Yorck Felix Speer & Adolph Seidel

KammerChor Saarbrucken & Deutsche Radio Philharmonie, Georg Grun

These are stunning recordings of three rarely performed Schumann masterworks. The Requiem is beautifully scored and inhabits a world between Fauré’s otherworldly peace and Berlioz’s thunderous Last Judgement.

“Der Königssohn is one of four ballads that Schumann composed in 1851, which are precursors of a whole genre of narrative concert pieces in the second half of the 19th century. It may not be top-drawer Schumann, but it offers a sense of the composer creating something new.” The Guardian, 26th May 2011 **

“this version of Nachtlied will leave no-one in doubt that this choral-orchestral miniature is a significant find. Der Königssohn is similarly enjoyable” BBC Music Magazine, August 2011 ****

“The soloists lend distinction, especially Christoph Prégardien as the young king-to-be, and Georg Grün's flexible direction doesn't undermine the pulse that each movement needs if it's to sustain any impression of coherence.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2011

“Whatever the aesthetic ambiguities of the work, Georg Grün and his musicians give the Requiem a creditable, straightforward performance. Balances tend to favour orchestral detail over a more precise choral presence...The soloists acquit themselves well.” International Record Review, September 2011
