Rapsodie Espagnole


This latest CD from BR KLASSIK contains five great rhapsodies, devised and elaborated by very different composers from different regions, with a lot of imagination and local flavour. With his rhapsody "España" the Frenchman Emmanuel Chabrier focused on the Iberian music and folk music so popular at the time, as did his more famous compatriot Maurice Ravel with his "Rhapsodie espagnole", the four-movement structure of which still harks back to long-outdated symphonic forms. From the Hungarian-born Franz Liszt we have the famous "Hungarian Rhapsody" No. 2, and from the Romanian composer George Enescu the scarcely less famous and popular "Romanian Rhapsody". The American George Gershwin created what was probably the most famous example of the genre in the 20th century with his "Rhapsody in Blue" for piano and orchestra… The Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks under their chief conductor Mariss Jansons are a guarantee of outstanding interpretative quality for these large-scale rhapsodic musical works. The Russian pianist Denis Matusev – internationally famous ever since he won the Tchaikovsky Piano Competition in Moscow in 1998 – proves to be a sovereign and stylistically confident interpreter of George Gershwin’s concertante masterpiece, with its numerous jazz elements. The live recording of this concert was made in October 2015 in the Herkulessaal of the Munich Residenz.

MDR Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra, Kristjan Järvi

Kristjan Järvi and Naïve launch the Kristjan Järvi Sound Project. This original recording series presents the charismatic conductor's extensive classical, world music and jazz collaborations, while capturing the essence of this vibrant and original musical personality. The Kristjan Järvi Sound Project spans Järvi's prolific musical output with an ambitious release schedule over several years. Recordings will reflect all of Kristjan Järvi's activities, from Music Director of MDR Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Gstaad Festival Orchestra, to the Baltic Youth Philharmonic (BYP) and his acclaimed classical-world-hip-hop-jazz group, Absolute Ensemble. As a creative force on today's music scene, Järvi is known for his innovative classical music programmes and instinctive vision for cross-genre collaborations. The first album on the Kristjan Järvi Sound Project is 'Balkan Fever' featuring the vibrant colours of folk-influenced orchestral pieces by Enescu and Kodály, with hypnotic sounds, melodies and beats from the Balkans.

The album stars a trio of virtuosic Balkan musicians: kaval-player Theodosii Spassov, and guitarists Miroslav Tadic and Vlatko Stefanovski, whilst the live concert recording captures the highly-charged atmosphere of intoxicating classical-folk-jazz fusion. The result is an electrifying sound experience.

“The ever-resourceful Kristjan Jarvi and his MDR Leipzig players lay on the spice with a vengeance, push the dance element too.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2014

Philharmonic-Symphony Orchestra of New York, Leopold Stokowski

The extensive collection of recordings on the Guild label conducted by Leopold Stokowski has garnered world-wide acclaim from the most knowledgeable critics, and this new release is sure to join the list of widely-welcomed recordings of the master. Three very well-known orchestral pieces open the programme, which features the New York Philharmonic throughout, and which in turn reveal the Maestro's legendary command of orchestral colour and internal balance. But the disc is enhanced by the world premiere performance of the legendary score, Sun Splendor, by the unique American composer and musicologist, Marion Bauer, and a wholly exceptional account of Britten's Piano Concerto - the first American broadcast of the work, no less - played by the dazzling American virtuoso Jacques Abram, who, under Stokowski's inspired direction, delivers a performance of considerable virtuosity and distinction.
