Cinco Danzas Gitanas, Op. 55

Rapsodia sinfonica, Op. 66

Martin Roscoe (piano)


This is the latest disc in Juanjo Mena’s ongoing series of Spanish orchestral music with the BBC Philharmonic and is his second featuring the works by Joaquín Turina, one of the leading Spanish composers of his generation.

The works recorded here are filled with the inspiration Turina found in his native Andalusia and particularly the city of Seville. La procesión del Rocío, Turina’s first orchestral work, was inspired by memories of a procession held in the gypsy quarter of Seville and is filled with lively dance rhythms. Canto a Sevilla, a song cycle with orchestra, is a heartfelt tribute to Seville and its culture, taking on themes such as the vibrant Easter Procession, Seville beautiful ornamental fountains, and even a ghost that haunts the streets at night. Danzas gitanas, a collection of Andalusian gypsy dances, introduces a nocturnal atmosphere into a style normally characterised by bright orchestral colours and extravagant rhythmic intricacies. The Rapsodia sinfónica, one of his last works, represents a more mature, reflective composer. The use of piano and string orchestra limits the available palette of colours, Turina instead deciding to focus on the intimate relationship between the ensemble and soloist, a role here filled by Martin Roscoe.

“The fact that Turina was a skilled orchestrator is manifest throughout this disc in performances of La procesion del rocio and the Danzas gitans that have a shifting, subtle spectrum of coour delineating the music's light and shade, its sunshine and louring clouds, its sensuality and sinew.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2014

Rapsodia sinfonica, Op. 66

Alicia de Larrocha (piano)

London Philharmonic Orchestra


Both the Albéniz works on this recording began life as piano pieces – the Suite española for solo piano (here orchestrated by Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos) and the Rapsodia española for two pianos, orchestrated by Cristobal Halffter. They are given immensely colourful performances here, in glorious ‘Decca Sound’, with Burgos’s 1967 recording of the Suite española still considered one of Decca’s demonstration records. Both the Rhapsodies are scored for piano and orchestra, and who better to demonstrate them than Alicia de Larrocha. This reissue forms part of a survey of her much-praised Decca recordings, some of them appearing on CD for the first time.

“She plays the piece with a bit more virtuoso flair and has been brilliantly recorded” Fanfare (Rapsodia española)

“a brilliant extravaganza of Spanishry … the unadulterated Decca stereo is here superb” Gramophone Magazine, October 1968 (Suite española)

“the sound of this Decca CD is quite superb … the strings are sensuously lustrous … Detail is remarkable but always presented within a believable ambience and the performances seem to gain extra life and spotaneity” Gramophone Magazine, October 1984 (Rapsodia española, Rapsodia sinfonica)

MOURA LYMPANY (1916–2005) was the last of the major Matthay pupils and she started working with him in 1937 when he was already 79. In 1938 she shot to international fame when she came second to Emil Gilels in the Queen Elisabeth competition. A brilliant technician, she followed in the footsteps of Scharrer and Joyce, though was perhaps temperamentally cooler that either.

Initially, she specialised in major works of the romantic and Russian repertoire and made the first complete recording of the Rachmaninov preludes (for Decca) in the 1940’s. She also gave the western premiere of Khachaturian piano concerto and subsequently recorded it; along with the Rachmaninov 2nd and 3rd concertos it become one of her signature works. The HMV recordings presented here, made before she returned to recording for Decca again in the later 1950’s, emphasize her virtuoso credentials and feature many of the piano’s most fearsome warhorses. This is repertoire she excelled in and her performances of, for example, Feux follets, or the toccatas of Ravel and Prokofiev, have rarely been equalled.

“Dame Moura's virtuosity quietly stuns. Her Mendelssohn, Liszt and Litolff are fleet and joyful; Granados's The Maiden and the Nightingale and Debussy's Clair de lune sing from the heart.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2013 ****

“The highlight of this collection is the Schumann Symphonic Etudes...Each of the variations is well-characterised. There is drama and energy on the one hand, and lyricism and richness of expression on the other, with superb attention to detail...This is an impressive tribute to a fine British pianist.” MusicWeb International, 2nd October 2013

In 1977 Decca released an LP entitled 'Concertos from Spain' which coupled two contemporary piano concertos - those by Montsalvatge (Concerto Breve, written for Alicia de Larrocha) and Surinach's Piano Concerto. The Surinach - a kind of Spanish Khachaturian - has never before been released on CD. Taking advantage of the extended playing time of a CD, this release includes two other concertante works for piano and orchestra - Turina's Rapsodia sinfonica (made famous by Eileen Joyce) and the Rapsodia espanola by a composer synonymous with de Larrocha: Albeniz.

SOMM has embarked on an exciting new series of recordings with the RPO and pianist Valerie Tryon and conductor Kenneth Woods.

The first disc in the SOMM series, of Turina's Rapsodia Sinfonica, Cesar Franck's Symphonic Variations and Manuel de Falla's Nights in the Gardens of Spain will be released in June. These are works which Ms Tryon has had in her repertoire for many years but which she records for the first time. Born in Portsmouth in 1934 she is an artist of great stature, remains as popular as ever and her recitals continue to enchant her audiences the world over.

She is scheduled to play the Grieg Piano Concerto at Fairfield Halls, Croydon with the RPO this autumn. SOMM will be recording her second disc (Rachmaninov's First Piano Concerto, Dohnanyi's Variations on a Nursery Theme and Richard Strauss's Burlesque) with the RPO and conductor Jac Van Steen in mid-July at the Henry Wood Hall.

“The best moments here are, for the most part, the quietest. For instance, the Franck's nocturnal interlude before its finale...presents atmosphere that could be cut with a butter knife. Woods draws the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra into a rapt stillness and Tryon merges her playing beautifully into the complete texture.” BBC Music Magazine, November 2013 ***

“The RPO are suitably emphatic and well-blended in the nicely scaled tuttis and Woods ensures momentum never flags [in the Franck]...A real treat; Tryon’s easy and evocative talent augurs well for her upcoming discs.” MusicWeb International, 11th July 2013
