Peter Bruns (cello)

Staatskapelle Dresden, Michael Helmath

Cellist Peter Bruns writes of this recording: "Interpretation starts when musicians "read between the lines" and do not merely reproduce the notes - only then can one talk of interpretation at all… Interpreters always balance the written notes and playing instructions with their own feelings and knowledge." Exercising his considerable musical scholarship and his natural virtuosity, Brun's has crafted a truly revelatory performance of one of the most beloved works in the cello repertoire. This innovative, fresh and tastefully programmed disc is a welcome addition to any collection.

Dvorak: Complete Symphonies Volume 1

Dvorak: Complete Symphonies Volume 1


Dvorak:

Symphony No. 1 in C minor, B9 'The Bells of Zlonice'

Rhapsody in A minor, Op. 14


Deutsche Radio Philharmonie Saarbrücken Kaiserslautern, Karel Mark Chichon

This release marks the first appearance of Karel Mark Chichon, the principal conductor of the German Radio Philharmonic Orchestra working together with the music label SWR music. The Brit decided to make the complete symphony works by Antonín Dvořák to his project. That wasn’t enough though! On this recording, the symphonies are linked together with other orchestral works by the Czech master – in this case together with the Slavic-nationalistic based rhapsody Op.14. The other releases will especially contain overtures and interludes from Dvořák’s operas as well as works of selected elegancy, which are rare to come by on a recording.

Dvořák’s first symphony with the surname “Die Glocke von Zlonice“ is despite its humongous orchestral apparatus full of magic and tunefulness. Its spacious areas and climax may remind from far distance of Anton Bruckner, though there are folksy twists as well as bright changes of moods and a colourful string sound, which present the work on its own note. The firstling from 1865 wasn’t though enough for Dvořák’s standards - he made it disappear in a drawer. The symphony’s first performance was in 1936 and only in 1961 it appeared in print.

The conductor Karel Mark Chichon is considered as one of the most exciting musicians of our time. He amazes an international audience with his temper, passion and sense for moods – traits he can specifically make use of at the music by Antonín Dvořák – and which make him and his orchestra such an amazing experience.

Symphony No. 7 in D minor, Op. 70

Symphony No. 8 in G major, Op. 88


Norrington returns to the works of Dvořak. Both he and his SWR ensemble have ample opportunity in these works to display their unflagging virtuosity. He has previously released Dvořak’s 9th Symphony with this orchestra (HAEN93251) “It is a very remarkable performance” International Record Review

“in these performances, the interpretative stakes are raised by Roger Norrington's cultivation of orchestral string playing that eschews vibrato. The radically different effect will not appeal to all. While the string sound is more focused, it is also slighter and throws more emphasis onto the wind and brass, and the players of the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra step up at every stage.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2011 ***

“Some expected Norrington attributes (uncluttered textures, minimal vibrato, etc) help focus the bare essentials of both masterpieces, the Seventh emerging as mellow but austere, the Eighth as a breezy 'dance symphony' in all but name...Norrington definitely stacks up, and if you accept the principles that underline his approach, I wouldn't hesitate, especially as the sound quality is extremely good.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2011
