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
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subkolektion: Orchester

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"

Beethoven - Symphony No.9, Choral

Beethoven - Symphony No.9, Choral
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subkolektion: 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.

Orlando Di Lasso - Psalmi Poenitentialis. Kammerchor Josquin Des Prez

Orlando Di Lasso - Psalmi Poenitentialis. Kammerchor Josquin Des Prez
ID: RK9606
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Kolektion: Renaissance

Erst nach dem Tod des prunksüchtigen Herzogs Albert V. von Bayern im Jahre 1584 konnten die bereits 1559 in seinem Auftrag entstandenen Bußpsalmen-Motetten, die er zeitlebens jeder Öffentlichkeit entzog, gedruckt werden. Lasso wählte als übergreifende Idee die Ordnung nach den 8 Kirchentonarten; dafür fügte er den sieben Bußpsalmen einen weiteren Text hinzu, den 148. Psalm. Für diese CD wurden der 1., 3., 6. und 7. Bußpsalm ausgewählt. Die elf Sänger interpretieren diese überaus subtile Musik mit feiner Sensibilität, die melodischen Linien schweben gleichsam im Raum der romanischen Basilika des Klosters Lehnin. Als besonders reizvoll erweist sich die gemischt solistisch-chorische Besetzung des Ensembles. So entsteht ein Gesamtklang, in dem Individualität und Fülle verschmelzen und das Hören dieser CD zu einem meditativen Erlebnis wird.

Rex Lawson (pianola)
BBC Singers - David Hill and James Morgan, conductors

Gabriel Jackson was Associate Composer with the BBC Singers from 2010 to 2013 and this disc collects the very best of this unique collaboration between composer and professional choral ensemble. The central work 'Airplane Cantata', premiered by the Singers in 2011, is an evocative tribute to the pioneers of flight and aircraft design, combining texts from early newsreels and pilots' journals, and featuring renowned pianola player Rex Lawson.

It is one of the first full length pieces written especially for the pianola since the 1930s. Gabriel states that in writing this piece he satisfied his obsession with aviation: “…the technology, the bravery and daring of pilots, the aesthetic beauty of aircraft, the transcendence of flying - and when thinking about what a piece for voices and pianola might be about, I was very struck by the fact that the (brief) heyday of the pianola coincided with the pioneering years of aviation.” The variety of texts used includes eye-witness accounts by Louis Blériot and the musings of Amelia Earhart. The seven-movement work makes full use of the amazing keyboard dexterity possible with the pianola’s virtuosic resources and contains the instrumental Toccata Aeronautica, a staggering showpiece movement for pianola alone, giving full opportunity to show what it can achieve, but which a pianist, restricted to ten fingers, could not. World-renowned pianolist, Rex Lawson, prepared the piano rolls making use of a computer programme which translates staff notation into a machine to punch the rolls, which he devised himself. Rex is a leading exponent of the pianola and works tirelessly to promote this once hugely-popular, but now rather misunderstood instrument. Gabriel Jackson won his third British Composer Award for 'Airplane Cantata' in 2012; his Choral Symphony, also included here, was shortlisted in 2013. This disc follows in Signum's popular series of recordings showcasing the work of the BBC singers and their associate composers. Previous discs include works by Judith Bingham and Edward Cowie.

Mark Williams leads the Choir of the Jesus College Cambridge through an evocative selection of choral works inspired in varying ways by the songs of Solomon.

Songs of love have been written from the earliest records of human existence. None are more passionately ecstatic than the Song of Solomon, which occupies a unique place in the Holy Bible in both style and content. It contains lyric poems of love and courtship, as might have been sung at Jewish weddings. For Christians, these poems speak to the beauty of the union of Christ and his ‘bride’, the Church. The present collection presents a diverse group of choral works written between the 16th century and the present day, with most inspired by this unique sacred text.
