Sounds of the 30s
A new recording with Riccardo Chailly, a top classical conductor, and Stefano Bollani, a top jazz pianist, following their phenomenally successful Gershwin Rhapsody/Concerto album. A new exciting programme focused on the magic ‘30s: a decade full of energy and creativity, in which several top classical composers were strongly influenced by such modern trends like jazz, tango and fox-trot.
“for me, the highlight of the disc is Victor de Sabata's Mille e una notte...Here Marx, Gershwin and Stravinsky rub shoulders with an already assured idiom in music played by Chailly and the Gewandhaus Orchestra with brilliance and refinement rather than forced gaeity and abandon. The de Sabata is worth the price of this record alone.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2012
“It’s a pleasure to hear how delicately, how transparently the Leipzig Gewandhausorchester accompany a well-behaved Bollani in the Ravel Concerto” The Arts Desk, 7th July 2012
