Elgar:

Enigma Variations, Op. 36

In the South (Alassio), Op. 50

Introduction & Allegro for strings, Op. 47


Roger Norrington and the Radio-Sinfonieorchester Stuttgart de SWR present a programme of works by the most English of composers, Edward Elgar. Included is “In the South”, a somewhat neglected masterwork which has rarely been recorded.

“Norrington captures the humour, the mercurial changes in mood and shading very plausibly. While one may miss the ripe, luxurious sound of a modern string section, the clarity that emerges has a lot to tell us about Elgar's textures - in this, one may well be reminded of Elgar's own recordings.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2011 ****

“the SWR RSO is evidently a fine orchestra, but Norrington's insistence on such a chaste string sound inevitably brings a coolness to music that demands more expressive warmth. In other respects, these performances are uncontroversial” The Guardian, 20th October 2011 ***

Li Chuanyun (Violin); Robert Koenig (Piano)

Hailed by the international media as “a massive talent with astonishing dynamic and expressive range…,” Chuanyun Li is one of the foremost violinists of his generation from China and internationally. An active member of the Yip’s Children Arts Centre since 1986, he has studied under the sponsorship of entrepreneur Mr Choi Kin Chung with Professor Yaoji Lin from Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing and won numerous prizes, including the 1st Prize in the 5th Wieniawski International Youth Violin Competition at 11. He studied with Dorothy DeLay, Itzhak Perlman and Hyo Kang in the Juilliard School of Music and continued his studies with DeLay and Kurt Sassmannshaus at the University of Cincinnati Conservatory of Music and with Joey Corpus in New York City with the support of the Clarisse B Kampel Foundation. Li has toured extensively in China, Japan and the US and collaborated with such orchestras as the Rotterdam Philharmonic with Valery Gergiev, Detroit Symphony with Neemi Järvi, Hong Kong Philharmonic with Edo de Waart, Queensland Symphony Orchestra with Michael Christie, China National Symphony with Xincao Li and Singapore Symphony with Lan Shui, among others. Hänssler Classic is proud to present the first recording of this exciting young artist to be made available outside of China.

Even 30 years ago, Roger Norrington surprised audiences with his historically informed interpretations of Romantic music. Over the past decade working with the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra (SWR), he has crafted what has been called the "Stuttgart Sound", “Stuttgart sound”, which developed out of Norrington's conviction of the vibrato-free performance, and which he developed to perfection with the Romantic repertoire. With works from Mozart and Haydn, (of which several CDs are available at hänssler CLASSIC in interpretations by Norrington), the conductor has has discovered the world of the high Romantic period step by step. These 10 CDs present a wide range of controversial music-making, that in addition to the wonderful music also provides plenty of material for future discussions.
