Siegfried Idyll


This is the second volume of a set of multi-channel Hybrid SACD recordings by the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic under renowned conductor Edo de Waart that features the orchestral music of Richard Wagner. The new disc includes The Ride of the Valkyries, the Overtures ‘Die Feen’ and ‘Faust’, the Prelude to Act 3 of Die Meistersinger, and Siegfried-Idyll.

Edo de Waart was Chief Conductor of the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra from 1989-2004, and is now its conductor Laureate. His early career took off when he won the Dimitri Mitropoulos Conducting Competition in New York, and that resulted in his appointment as Assistant Conductor to Leonard Bernstein at the New York Philharmonic. On his return to Holland he was appointed Assistant Conductor to Bernard Haitink at the Concertgebouw Orchestra, and in 1973 he was appointed Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra.

Although at different times in his career Richard Wagner planned series of programmatic concert overtures and one-movement symphonies, he actually wrote remarkably little concert music. This disc contains the two most substantial concert works of his maturity, the Faust Overture and the Siegfried Idyll. These works are complemented on this recording by two of Wagner’s early operatic overtures, and by two excerpts from his later music-dramas. It is the second volume of a set of multi-channel Hybrid SACD recordings by the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic and conductor Edo de Waart to feature Wagner’s orchestral music. The first volume (OVCL00153) was released in January and included the Preludes to Act 1 of Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg and Preludes and Overtures from Parsifal, Lohengrin, The Flying Dutchman, Tristan and Isolde, and Tannhauser.

Recording of a concert in Carnegie Hall, New York on 20 November 1938

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg: Entry of the Masters


Although John Barbirolli made several commercial recordings during his seven years as conductor of the Philharmonic- Symphony Orchestra of New York (as the New York Philharmonic was then formally known), the Barbirolli Society offers us a unique oportunity with this issue of an off-the-air recording of a Wagner concert, performed in Carnegie Hall in November 1938. It comes as a valuable reminder of an important period of his career, one moreover which has come to be regarded, superficially and misleadingly, as a failure. The orchestra was immediately won over by Barbirolli’s personality and remained devoted to him. If these tough players – once known as ‘Murder Incorporated’ – had not liked him and respected his musicianship, it would have been impossible for the manager Arthur Judson, within five days of JB’s first concert, to have begun to mention a permanent appointment. On 7 December 1936, after five weeks’ work with the orchestra, the board offered him a three-year contract and this was renewed in 1940 for a further two years, by which time the war was a complicating factor. JB himself was overwhelmed and wrote to his future wife Evelyn Rothwell on 11 December 1936: ‘The orchestra played tonight as something I have dreamed of. . . The emotion of the orchestra at my appointment is something too touching for words. I can’t believe I am worthy of all this.’ The orchestra’s first horn player spoke of ‘the joy’ of making music with Barbirolli.

Royal Academy of Music Symphonic Brass, James Watson

The Royal Academy's brass department has established itself as one of the foremost in the world. The department's professors are active performers at the highest professional level, and include principal players with London's leading orchestras and world-renowned solo performers. In addition to the resident teachers, visiting specialists regularly teach at the Academy-further increasing the range of expertise which students can draw on. Brass students are prepared for every aspect of the profession, from period performance on original instruments through big band to the avant-garde and session work. Professor James Watson divides his time between playing, teaching and conducting. He studied trumpet at the Royal Academy of Music, where he now holds the position of Artistic Director and Head of Brass. James's orchestral work has included principal trumpet posts with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, London Sinfonietta, the Nash Ensemble and Philip Jones Brass Ensemble. Conducting positions have included Artistic Director of the renowned Black Dyke Mills Band, Artistic Director of the National Youth Brass Band of Wales and Vice President of the National Youth Wind Orchestra of Great Britain.

"Excellent playing in an entertaining recital…brilliantly played and detailed… Throughout, the playing and ensemble of these brass professionals of the future are excellent" Gramophone

“…the "Entry of the Gods into Valhalla"… opens with spectacular explosive force and the players maintain their bravado throughout. …this is a collection for brass aficionados. It is certainly splendidly recorded.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2009
