Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition & Rimsky-Korsakov: Scheherazade, Op. 35

Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition & Rimsky-Korsakov: Scheherazade, Op. 35


Mussorgsky:

Pictures at an Exhibition

Rimsky Korsakov:

Scheherazade, Op. 35


For this second collaboration between the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra, Emmanuel Krivine and Zig-Zag Territoires, two major Russian works were chosen.

Both make the orchestra sound sumptuous with, for the first, the complicity of that fantastic colourist and orchestrator Maurice Ravel, and for the second, the skill of a composer nicknamed ‘the magician of the orchestra’. Emmanuel Krivine excels in these works, which demand much of all the musicians and necessitate as much commitment as perspicacity from the conductor, at the service of scores magnifying the fantastic musical instrument that is the modern symphony orchestra.

Rimsky-Korsakov: Scenes from The Invisible City of Kitezh & Sheherazade


Rimsky Korsakov:

Scheherazade, Op. 35

The Legend of the Invisible City of Kitezh and the Maiden Fevronia: excerpts


Although he was counted amongst Mily Balakirev's 'Mighty Handful' (which dedicated itself to pursuing a more purely Russian art music, as opposed to the Austro-German musical dominance of the era), both works on this recording show how Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov was able to draw influences from beyond Russia into his own unique compositional approach: the scenes from his opera 'The Invisible City of Kitezh' take on a dramatic, Wagnerian influence, whilst 'Sheherazade' is suffused with orientalism as it conjures images from the Thousand and One Nights.

“this Scheherazade is absolutely marvellous, one of the best available. If you think you have heard the score so often that it has become jaded, this is a recording to make you think again.” MusicWeb International, 28th May 2013

“every gesture and expression dovetails with what we hear. Subtle yet soaring, these orchestral performances are shaped by a conductor who enjoys every second of his job, and equally enjoys the musicians before him - the superb Concertgebouw players, peerless in technical finesse and the elegant colouring of phrase and line.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2012 ***

“Nelsons is engrossed in the music, and it’s impossible not to succumb to his obvious and infectious enthusiasm...That’s one of the unexpected joys of this concert; everyone is clearly having fun...A delightful overture, a competent concerto, and a Scheherazade to die for.” MusicWeb International, July 2012

Charles Dutoit conducts Rimsky-Korsakov

Rimsky Korsakov:

Scheherazade, Op. 35

Clio Gould (violin)

Russian Easter Festival Overture, Op. 36


Two of the greatest orchestral showpieces in the repertoire – Rimsky’s superbly scored and dramatic orchestral suite based on stories from The Arabian Nights, and his colourful depiction of the Russian Orthodox Easter festival, combining both traditional tunes with liturgical chant.

Charles Dutoit is one of the greatest exponents of this repertoire, and together with his new orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic, delivers performances of great passion and exhilaration.

The first of a series of recordings from Dutoit and the RPO to be released by ONYX.

“[Clio Gould] offers a ravishing account of the solo violin narrative thread linking the different episodes in the music. Her playing has a fragile beauty...the splendid performance of the Easter Festival Overture conjures up a heady atmosphere of bells and swirling incense. The playing is most refined...making one marvel again at Rimsky's colourful orchestration.” International Record Review, January 2011

Le Coq d'Or Suite


Pierre Nerini (violin)

L'Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Paris Conservatoire Orcheatra, Ernest Ansermet

While Ansermet's stereo Suisse Romande recording of Scheherazade is well-known and has been frequently reissued, his early (1954) Paris Conservatoire Orchestra recording of this piece is a relative rarity and here receives its first CD outing on Decca. It has, perhaps, that extra bit of fantasy over his later recording of the work and was beautifully recorded by the Producer/Engineer team of Victor Olof and James Brown at the Maison de la Mutualite in Paris. Its coupling receives its first release on CD - the Coq d'Or Suite, recorded two years earlier (in mono) and which tells the tale of the ill-advised King Dodon who meets his end by being pecked to death by a golden cockerel!
