Beethoven: Coriolan Overture & Symphony No. 5

Beethoven: Coriolan Overture & Symphony No. 5


Beethoven:

Coriolan Overture, Op. 62

Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Op. 67


Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 was never recorded commercially by Klaus Tennstedt. Instead, there are two live recordings of the Symphony with the LPO led by Tennstedt: one from 1988 (on EMI nla), and a remastering of the 1990 BBC Prom concert performance on BBC Legends released in 2004 (nla). It is the 1990 recording which has been remastered once again and released by the LPO’s own label.

The best of Tennstedt’s abilities are heard in live concert recordings like this one. He was a musician of dynamism and spontaneous inspiration, and these performances are a reminder of the commitment and expressive intensity he extracts from the LPO, with which he held such a strong relationship throughout his tenure as Principal Conductor and beyond.

This is Beethoven in the interpretative tradition of mid-twentieth century conductors like Furtwängler, Klemperer and Karajan, but Tennstedt’s Beethoven has an added spring in its step and his tempos exploit the composer’s heroism. Rarely can one hear such freedom and intensity combined with such success as it is here in Tennstedt’s Beethoven 5th.

There are very few conductors like Tennstedt whose style depended so remarkably on the constant tug-of-war between meter and rhythm in the score. It’s a musical approach fraught with danger and only succeeds in the hands of a select few, where the relationship between both conductor and musicians live every note, every bar, every instruction from the podium, as one, from start to finish. This was the genius of Tennstedt.

These recordings were taken from live concert performances at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall in February 1992 (Coriolan Overture, an LPO archive recording) and at the Royal Albert Hall as part of the BBC Proms in August 1990 (Symphony No. 5, recorded by BBC Radio 3).

Beethoven: Triple Concerto

Beethoven: Triple Concerto


Beethoven:

Triple Concerto for Piano, Violin, and Cello in C major, Op. 56

Giuliano Carmignola (violin), Sol Gabetta (cello), Dejan Lazic (piano)

The Creatures of Prometheus Overture, Op. 43

Egmont Overture, Op. 84

Coriolan Overture, Op. 62


Cello superstar Sol Gabetta teams up with the celebrated musicians Giuliano Carmignola, violin, and Dejan Lazić, piano, to form a formidably talented ensemble for this new all-Beethoven recording. They will be joined by conductor Giovanni Antonini and the Kammerorchester Basel, a team who have great pedigree recording Beethoven’s works to critical acclaim.

The centrepiece of this album is Beethoven’s ‘Triple Concerto’, the Concerto for Violin, Cello and Piano in C Major, Op. 56. The choice of the three solo instruments effectively makes this a concerto for piano trio, and it is the only concerto Beethoven ever completed for more than one solo instrument.

The album also includes a number of Beethoven’s most well-known overtures. The famous Coriolan Overture features alongside ‘The Creatures of Prometheus’ and the Egmont overtures.

“full praise to the Sony production team for finding such a convincing balance, not just between soloists and orchestra, but between the soloists themselves. It all sounds wonderfully fresh and clear. So too does the perfomance. The Triple Concerto's eccentricites are joyously celebrated…[and] it isn't just the élan and lively intelligence that impress: I've rarely heard such a roundly enjoyable performance of the brief slow movement.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2015 *****

“Sol Gabetta [gives] a wonderfully lyrical account of the [Triple Concerto's] all-important cello role…Antonini and his Basle chamber players [are] prompt and sympathetic” Gramophone Magazine, October 2015

“Cellist Sol Gabetta, violinist Giuliano Carmignola and pianist Dejan Lazić are here something of a dream team: characterful, distinctive and focused on the same thing. They can be dynamic and crisply propulsive together, but this performance has a lightness of touch that in the finale spills over into playfulness and wit” The Guardian, 17th September 2015 ****

Coriolan Overture, Op. 62


In the latest instalment of the Decca Ansermet Legacy, Decca Eloquence introduces the Swiss conductor's recordings of Beethoven - his symphony cycle, overtures and the rare Weingartner arrangement of the Grosse Fuge. They are issued as three 2-CD sets.

Francois Hudry, the supreme commentator on the art of Ernest Ansermet writes, "the new vision he brought to the Beethoven symphonies was astonishing. Perhaps he was too early in what he did, in his respect for the text and in his weeding out of all the Romantic touches and subjectivity which held sway at the time. Without recourse to so-called 'authentic' instruments, Ansermet was trying to return to the composer's intentions, as given in the score, avoiding the imposition of any responses of his own on the audience."

In Beethoven, Ansermet heard not just a titan but a romantic, sensual man, not just a thunderer but composer of sensitivity and subtlety. Even the mighty 'Eroica' was allowed to a reveal a softer, perhaps even a more feminine aspect. Whether he was conducting Beethoven or Ravel, Ansermet had a fine ear for instrumental colour, and a talent for keeping rhythms well-sprung and flexible. At times, Ansermet's Beethoven even seems to anticipate the 'authentic' Beethoven performances that became popular in the 1990s, although Ansermet got his results without having to rely on the sometimes unpredictable behaviour of period instruments.

“[Ansermet] interprets Beethoven 4 with grandeur and authority and perfect spontaneity... Ansermet's reading of Coriolan is fine... The attack and chording, and the shaping of the overture otherwise, are all impressive, and the vividness of the drums is particularly striking.” Gramophone Magazine
