Markevitch - Complete Orchestral Works Volume 5


Lorenzo il Magnifico


Lucy Shelton (soprano)

Cappella Carolina

The two vocal works featured on this disc encompass virtually the entire span of Markevitch’s compositional life, and the whole range of his style.

The works range from the gripping immediacy of Psaume, written at the age of 21, to the polished sophistication of Lorenzo The Magnificent, written a bare decade later yet almost marking the close of his brief output of original creative work.

Lorenzo The Magnificent is thus (apart from the remarkable orchestration amounting virtually to a recomposition of Bach’s A Musical Offering of 1949-50) Markevitch’s adieu as composer to the colours of the orchestra.

Igor Markevitch: Lorenzo il magnifico

I. Allegro con brio, ma sempre maestoso

II. Allegretto vivace e pastorale

III. Contemplazione della bellezza: Intermezzo strumentale (Andante con moto)

IV. Adagio (in modo tragico)

V. Vivo con spirito - Tranquillo (senza lentezza) - A tempo: sempre piu gioioso sino al fine

Igor Markevitch: Psaume

I. Allegramente

II. Lentamente

III. Con fuoco

IV. Sostenuto e molto tranquillo
