Oliver Knussen - Symphonies No.2 & No.3

Oliver Knussen - Symphonies No.2 & No.3
ID: NMCD175
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection:
Symphony

Two of Knussen's major works of the 1970s - Symphony No.2, a song cycle on texts of Georg Trakl and Sylvia Plath, and Symphony No. 3, a symphonic poem about Shakespeare's Ophelia - are coupled with Coursing, Ophelia Dances and other works.

This release on the NMC mid-price re-issue label Ancora was previously issued on Unicorn-Kanchana Records.
Composer/conductor Oliver Knussen celebrates his 60th birthday this year.
Knussen's Ophelia Dances will be performed by BCMG at his 60th birthday concert held at the CBSO Centre (Birmingham, UK)
A new release on NMC of works by Knussen is released this autumn, featuring BCMG, Ryan Wigglesworth and soprano Claire Booth.
Knussen started composing at the age of 6 and aged 15 he stepped in to conduct his symphony's première at the Royal Festival Hall, London in 1968 after István Kertész fell ill. After that debut, Daniel Barenboim asked him to conduct the work's first two movements in New York a week later.
This is a substantial sampler of Oliver Knussen's output in the 1970s. The two major works are the luminous Second Symphony, which takes the form of a 17-minute song cycle to texts of Georg Trakl and Sylvia Plath and Symphony No. 3, a symphonic poem about Shakespeare's Ophelia.

This release features Schumann’s symphonies edited by George Szell.

These versions were a result of the conductor’s tremendous experience combined with a most delicate feeling for style and were the choice of Rozhdestevensky for these performances.

Schumann: Symphonies Nos. 1-4 (complete) edited by George Szell

"Among the German composers, the first place, after Beethoven, indisputably belongs to Schumann… Schumann's symphonies yield to Beethoven's Ninth only … in thought, his overtures are more diverse and deeper than Mendelssohn's ones," the Russian composer and music critic César Cui said about Robert Schumann's symphonic works. The composer's symphonic heritage includes four symphonies written within the 1840-1850s: symphony No. 1 in B flat major (known as Spring), Op. 38; symphony No. 2 in C major, Op. 61; symphony No. 3 "Rhenish" in E flat major, Op. 97; and symphony No. 4 in D minor, Op. 120. This Firma Melodiya release features Schumann's symphonies edited by George Szell and performed by the Estonian Symphony Orchestra conducted by the celebrated Gennady Rozhdestvensky. "The remarkable conductor George Szell made superb versions of Schumann's four symphonies. These recordings have been made based on his versions … they are a result of the conductor's tremendous experience combined with a most delicate feeling for style…" that's how the maestro explained his choice of Szell's versions.

Firma Melodiya presents a set of selected symphonies by Nikolai Myaskovsky.

This composer’s music is not widely popular today, but he belongs in the group of Russia’s brightest music talents of the first half of the 20th century. His music organically combines old and new, traditions of classical music culture and keenness of expressionism, high tragedy of Beethoven and Tchaikovsky and boldness of avant-garde music. Dmitri Shostakovich considered Mayskovsky “the major symphonist after Mahler”, and Sergei Prokofiev wrote that Myaskovsky “was somewhat more a philosopher - his music is wise, passionate, gloomy and self-absorbed”.

Symphony was the most important genre to the composer. His twenty-seven symphonies, composed over a 40 year period, are a sort of personal diary, reflecting the complicated and winding path of his artistic evolution. At the same time, they are a music chronicle of the age, a response of the big artist to the most significant historic and cultural events of the time.

The set includes six symphonies from Myaskovsky’s later period (1935 to 1950) - Nos 16, 17, 21, 22, 25 and 27 - performed by the USSR State Academic Symphony Orchestra conducted by the outstanding Evgeny Svetlanov (the only conductor in the world to record all of Myaskovsky’s symphonies) and his predecessor in the State Orchestra, Konstantin Ivanov, one of the major representatives of the Soviet conducting school.

Miaskovsky:
Symphony No. 16 in F major, Op.39 - Konstantin Ivanov, conductor
Symphony No. 17 in G sharp minor, Op. 41 - Evgeny Svetlanov, conductor
Symphony No. 21 in F sharp minor, Op. 51 -Konstantin Ivanov, conductor
Symphony No. 22 in B minor, Op. 54 'Symphony-Ballad ' - Evgeny Svetlanov, conductor
Symphony No. 25 in D flat major, Op. 69 - Evgeny Svetlanov, conductor
Symphony No. 27 in C minor, Op. 85 - Evgeny Svetlanov, conductor

R. Vaughan Williams - Symphonies No.1, No.2, No.3, No.5, No.6, No.8 and No.9

Melodiya presents a complete set of Ralph Vaughan Williams’s symphonies conducted by Gennady Rozhdestvensky.Vaughan Williams was one of the largest figures of the English Musical Renaissance, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. A composer, conductor, organist, folklore student and publicist, Vaughan Williams today is mostly known for his large-scale symphonic works. The English composer’s nine symphonies sequentially reflect the evolution of his creative style (the first one was composed in 1903, and the last one not long before he died in 1958). Each of them seems to be a continuation, a development of the previous one (a sort of “chapters of one novel”), but neither repeats any other one in structure, composition, concept or music. Some of the symphonies are closely connected with national poetry (Walt Whitman), episodes from the English history or pictures of native countryside.Absorbing a wide range of sources realized in Vaughan Williams’s style - from old folk songs and religious hymns to musical impressionism and jazz - his symphonies are notable for expressive figurativeness and melodic resourcefulness, and open to any keen ear.The recordings of Vaughan Williams’s symphonies performed by the prominent conductor and recognized master of interpretation of 20th century music were made at concerts in 1988-1989 in Leningrad.

D. SHOSTAKOVICH - All Symphonies - Symphonies Nos. 1-15 (complete)

Symphony

Dmitri Shostakovich’s creations constitute a musical chronicle of the epoch. What we hear in his music is something that continues to alarm minds and souls of millions of people. His fifteen symphonies captured not only the great musician’s evolution - as if the entire 20th century with its great discoveries and perturbations, unprecedented progress and terrifying catastrophes breathes in their scores. These are unique documents of human spirit that will stay with us for good to tell us about their time, to stir heated theoretical and aesthetic disputes, to give us a reason for very different interpretations, and to command our admiration or sharp rejection. Whatever the case may be, they will never find an indifferent listener.
Firma Melodiya is preparing a number of large-scale projects for the Shostakovich anniversary year. We present the first of them - a set of the composer’s symphonies performed by the greatest masters of the Soviet conducting school and brightest interpreters of Shostakovich’s music - Evgeny Mravinsky, Kirill Kondrashin, Evgeny Svetlanov and Gennady Rozhdestvensky. The set also includes recordings made by Konstantin Ivanov, a predecessor of Evgeny Svetlanov as chief conductor of the country’s principal orchestra - the USSR State Academic Symphony Orchestra; Yuri Temirkanov, a successor of Evgeny Mravinsky, a great representative of the St. Petersburg conducting school; Rudolf Barshai, a founder of the first Soviet chamber orchestra and the one who inspired Shostakovich’s Fourteenth Symphony; and Maxim Shostakovich, the composer’s son who presented the world premiere of the last, Fifteenth Symphony.
The live and studio recordings of Shostakovich’s symphonies were made by Firma Melodiya from 1961 to 1984. The studio recording is peculiar for the fact it was realized shortly after the world premiere in the presence and under supervision of the composer. An unconfirmed legend among the former members of the Moscow Radio Symphony Orchestra has it that the recording was to be erased together with the other ones after Maxim Shostakovich defected from the Soviet Union. However, it survived among the Melodiya phonograms.
The edition comprises a lidded hard box made from lined cardboard, 9 digipacks and a thick hardcover booklet in English and Russian.
