Blond Eckbert - Judith Weir

Blond Eckbert - Judith Weir
ID: NMCD106
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Vocal Collection
Subcollection: Choir

Blond Eckbert, Judith Weir's first opera, is based on Ludwig Tieck's folk-like tale of a quiet elderly couple whose secluded life eerily unravels as their fantastical past catches up with them. The music's apparent simplicity, with echoes of Weber's Freischütz - belies its underlying darkness.

Originally released on Collins Classics in 1994.

The Rite of Spring - Igor Stravinsky - BBC National Orchestra of Wales - Thierry Fischer, conductor

The Rite of Spring - Igor Stravinsky - BBC National Orchestra of Wales - Thierry Fischer, conductor
ID: SIGCD205
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Orchestra

The conclusion to a three part-series of Igor Stravinsky‘s ballets from Sergei Diaghilev,s Ballet Russes, performed by BBC National Orchestra of Wales under Thierry Fischer. These recordings capture the excitement and vibrancy of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in live performance at their home of BBC Hoddinott Hall, Wales.

Almost no musical work has had such a powerful influence or evoked as much controversy as Stravinsky's ballet score The Rite of Spring. The work's premiere on May 29, 1913, at the Théatre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, was scandalous. In addition to the outrageous costumes, unusual choreography and bizarre story of pagan sacrifice, Stravinsky's musical innovations tested the patience of the audience to the fullest.

This disc also features Francis Poulenc‘s ballet Les Biches, premiered at the Ballet Russes in 1924. Originally commissioned by Diaghilev to write a piece based on Glazunov‘s Les Sylphides, Poulenc instead chose to base his piece on the paintings of Watteau that depicted Louis XV and various women in his "Parc aux biches"

Type: CD
Subcollection: Choir

Carmina Burana is a scenic cantata composed by Carl Orff in 1935 and 1936. It is based on 24 of the poems found in the medieval collection Carmina Burana. Carmina Burana was conceived as part of Orff's musical trilogy, the Trionfi, a musical triptych that also includes the cantata Catulli Carmina and Trionfo di Afrodite. Carmina Burana was first performed by the Frankfurt Opera on June 8, 1937. Shortly after the highly successful premiere, Orff wrote his publisher, Schott Music: "Everything I have written to date, and which you have, unfortunately, printed, can be destroyed. With Carmina Burana, my collected works begin." The version performed here, for soloists, mixed choir, children's choir, 2 pianos and 6 percussionists was prepared by Orff's disciple Wilhelm Killmayer in 1956 and authorized by Orff himself. From disaster films to disco songs, Orff's "Carmina Burana" (or at least "O Fortuna"...) is arguably one of the most popular and recognizable pieces of classical music in the world. This fresh, new approach, performed by the unquestioned master of the contemporary choral arts, Rupert Huber offers an exciting, fresh take on this familiar warhorse!

Hubert Parry Songs of Farewell - Tenebrae - Nigel Short, director

Hubert Parry Songs of Farewell - Tenebrae - Nigel Short, director
ID: SIGCD267
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Choral Collection
Subcollection: Choir

Following a string of five-star reviews for their previous discs of 20th-century French choral music (Poulenc’s Figure Humaine - SIGCD197) and Renaissance polyphony (Victoria’s Requiem Mass - SIGCD248), the professional chamber-choir Tenebrae go from strength to strength with this new recording of British partsongs and choral music - centered on Hubert Parry’s Songs of Farewell.

Composed towards the end of Parry’s life, the Songs of Farewell have taken on something of an epithetical interpretation; they are almost a musical summation of his compositional life, reflecting Parry’s love of English renaissance madrigals and partsongs as much as the influence on his work from German composers like Brahms - made more complicated as these works were composed as the country (and its music) fell out of favour at the start of the Great War. This disc also includes works by Tavener, Sullivan, Holst, Rodney Bennett, Howells, Elgar and Vaughan Williams.

Beethoven - Symphony No.9, Choral

Beethoven - Symphony No.9, Choral
ID: SIGCD254
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Voices and Orchestra

Beethoven’s euphoric Symphony No.9, like his symphony No.5, is one of those pieces of classical music which transcends the barrier between musical genres - one of the few pieces of the classical canon in the popular consciousness. Few can fail to be uplifted and caught up in the joyous Ode to Joy finale. For this performance, recorded live at the Edinburgh International Festival in 1994, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment were joined by the renowned conductor and long-time collaborator, Sir Charles Mackerras, a partnership between him and the OAE that lasted almost a quarter of a century.

This is Signum’s second release with the OAE, following a release of Monteverdi’s Vespers (SIGCD237) earlier this year. The next release, planned for December, will feature Sarah Connolly performing Mahler’s Totenfier and Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen with the OAE under Vladimir Jurowski.
