“The highlight of this enjoyable, beautifully filmed concert is the Largo from Dvorak's New World Symphony, one of the gentlest and most tenderly phrased accounts I've ever heard...Camerawork is lively and informative, but then Nelsons himself is a real boon, perhaps the most visually likeable conductor since Carlos Kleiber.” Gramophone Magazine, October 2013

“a terrific memento of a marvellous concert...The performance of the New World...is out of the top drawer, with the same outstanding qualities as their audio recording....Nelsons makes the Symphony sound fresh and vibrant, finding a genuinely new and effective perspective...the playing [in Song of the Nightingale] is superb and Nelsons manages to surprise and delight” BBC Music Magazine, November 2013 ****

Symphony No. 9 in E minor, Op. 95 'From the New World'

Live-Recording, Herkulessaal, October 2010

The Hero's Song, Op. 111

Philharmonie, April 2012


Andris Nelsons is a private student of Mariss Jansons. Andris is one of the most highly regarded young conductors and is under serious consideration as a potential successor to several blue-ribbon chief conductor positions.

This release presents a live recording of Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9 from the Munich Herkulessaal and Dvořák A Hero’s Song, Op. 111 from the Philharmonie im Gasteig, recorded in 2010 and 2012.

“At every stage in this performance, the listener is compelled to reappraise a familiar masterpiece. All in all, this is a stunning interpretation with constantly rewarding orchestral playing, as well as excellent recorded sound.” BBC Music Magazine, July 2013 *****

“it finds Andris Nelsons drawing the most sumptuously refined, pungently characterful and bracingly alert response from the Bavarian RSO. His is a no-holds-barred conception of powerful expressive scope, intrepid incident and obvious affection...A very strong recommendation.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2013

“it feels as if the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra has established a special rapport with Nelsons. Marshalling his sections with conspicuous assurance Nelsons leads a performance of innate energy and vibrancy. It feels a notch or two above the routine standard of playing that [the New World] often produces.” MusicWeb International, 6th August 2013

“Both performances convey a great deal of what is so special about Nelsons as an interpreter, and of the excitement he can generate on the podium. It's quite something to bring such freshness to the New World Symphony, whether it's in the sense of wonder with which he phrases the first movement's second subject, or the edge-of-seat drama he brings to the finale” The Guardian, 4th April 2013 ****

“The Nelsons fire and lustre are on full display in the live recordings on this Dvorák disc with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, a top-class band with a glow of its own...Yet it takes more than immaculate playing to bring a chestnut to life. Here there’s such freshness in Nelsons’ phrasings, such lyrical pungency and dramatic attack, that the piece became blissfully young: a new world indeed.” The Times, 29th March 2013 ****

Dvořák: Symphony No. 9


Dvorak:

Symphony No. 9 in E minor, Op. 95 'From the New World'

Czech Suite, Op. 39

My Home Overture, Op. 62


Following their acclaimed recordings of Dvořák’s Symphonies Nos. 7 and 8, Claus Peter Flor and the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra come to his Symphony No.9 ‘From the New World’.

Since its première, Symphony No. 9 has remained one of his most popular works. It was composed in America and, in the words of the composer, uses ‘simply written original themes embodying the peculiarities of the Indian music’, developing them ‘with all the resources of modern rhythms, harmony, counterpoint and orchestral colour.’

Dvořák performed the overture Můj domov (My Home) at the Czech première of the Ninth. Part of the incidental music for a play, the overture is based on two popular songs, one of which, Kde domov můj (Where Is My Home), would later become the Czechoslovakian national anthem.

Another of Dvořák’s ‘nationalistic’ works appears here – the light-hearted Czech Suite, consisting of five movements, all based on the dance rhythms of Bohemia, Moravia and Central Europe.

“the performance as a whole displays such unfailing purpose, sensitivity and freshness of new discovery that I felt I was encountering the music for the first time...The SACD sound throughout is superb, gloriously ripe, most judiciously balanced...I derived enormous pleasure from this release and feel sure you will too.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2013

“this will be one for collectors of the series, and I can guarantee it doesn’t disappoint on any level...I love the orchestra’s clean sound and rich resonance, the strings are silky smooth, winds musical and tastefully stylish in terms of vibrato, the brass superbly tuned and powerful where power is demanded.” MusicWeb International, April 2013

London Symphony Orchestra

Symphony No. 9 in E minor, Op. 95 'From the New World'

Wiener Philharmoniker


István Kertész made one of the first stereo cycles of Dvorák’s symphonies on Decca with the London Symphony Orchestra. Earlier still, in 1961, he recorded just the Ninth (‘From the New World’), with the Vienna Philharmonic – one of the tautest, most thrilling performances ever committed to disc. It is coupled here with a recording made seven years later with the LSO, and long out of the catalogue, that of the Wind Serenade. This release forms part of a survey, on Eloquence, of Kertész’s treasured Decca discography.

“This graceful performance of the New World may be a touch over-romantic for some but it has genuine depth. The wind playing in the Serenade is a constant delight.” BBC Music Magazine, February 2013 ***

Dvorak: Symphony No. 9 & Cello Concerto

Dvorak: Symphony No. 9 & Cello Concerto


Dvorak:

Symphony No. 9 in E minor, Op. 95 'From the New World'

Cello Concerto in B minor, Op. 104

Mario Brunello (cello)


Orchestra dell' Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Roma, Sir Antonio Pappano

A recording of two of Dvorak’s most loved works together on disc – the Symphony No.9 in E minor “From the New World” and his Cello Concerto in B minor.

These two works are not often paired together on recordings. They were recorded live during the 11/12 Santa Cecilia season.

Dvorak wrote the 9th symphony following a trip to America. It is imbued with the rhythms of native American immigrant folk music cast in the language of the 19th century romantic musical language. Antonio Pappano, born in America but working in the European tradition, sees this piece in new and fresh ways because of his own heritage. This is the first time Pappano has conducted the 9th symphony, although he has admired the work for years.

This will also be a rare recording of the first edition of the Dvorak Cello Concerto, completed in 1895 - before he accepted a few of the numerous changes suggested by his cellist friend Hanuš Wihan (to whom Dvorak dedicated the work), It is far less frequently heard and, according to Dmitry Markevitch (the respected Russian concert cellist, researcher, teacher and musicologist) “much more musical”.

Dvorak wrote the concerto towards the end of his highly productive stay in America – he was in New York for his third term as the Director of the National Conservatory. He was inspired after hearing the second cello concerto by Victor Herbert - a fellow teacher at the Conservatory – 1894. Up till then Dvorák had always refused, stating that the cello was a fine orchestral instrument but totally insufficient for a solo concerto.

The concerto smacks of the anticipatory pleasures that Dvorák felt at the prospect of returning home. It opens with a large-scale and dramatically powerful Allegro, before striking a more dreamy note in the Andante and culminating in a fast and furious finale with folk-like elements from Bohemia - a compositorial greeting from the New World to Dvorák's distant homeland.

It is performed by the renowned Italian cellist Mario Brunello. He won the International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1986 – the first Italian to ever do so, and has been catching the attention of musical authorities, including Maestro Pappano, ever since. He tours in Europe, America & Japan, appearing with leading orchestras and conductors (eg Semyon Bychkov, Myung-Whun Chung, Daniele Gatti and Valeri Gergiev).

“[Brunello] plays with great spirit and no little poetry; and, if he is not the most commandingly articulate, tonally seductive or full-throated protagonist...he generates a personable rapport with Sir Antonio Pappano...it's easy to like a performance whose heart is always in the right place...The account of the New World boasts comparable virtues, being abundantly characterful, pliable and consistently involving” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2012

“Never has the New World Symphony sounded less like a jaded old warhorse than in this vital, unfailingly musical account. Not even Pappano can prevent the finale seeming a letdown, but his élan, scrupulous dynamic control and attention to detail give delight.” Sunday Times, 2nd December 2012

“It is clear from the outset that melody is uppermost in Antonio Pappano's interpretation of the New World. The opening theme is phrased with great tenderness which makes the arrival of the louder, more dynamic material of the introduction a genuine shock. This balance of drama and lyricism makes for some compelling listening in all four movements. Where it falls down is in a slightly literal approach to development.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2013 ***

“Interpretively, Pappano takes nothing for granted in the New World, phrasing with purpose, eliciting vivid, expressive colours. The slow introduction is beautiful and affecting; in the body of the first movement, Pappano infuses the music with a rhythmic buoyancy along with the customary forward drive” MusicWeb International, 10th June 2013

He is also an excellent talker...But watching and listening confirms that, although he conducts from his heart, he has a strong intelligence guiding him. There aren't too many conductors around today who balance those crucial values as successfully as he does.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2012
