    Prokofiev: Symphony No. 6

    £8.99
    São Paulo Symphony Orchestra (OSESP) | Marin Alsop

    Prokofiev started work on his Sixth Symphony in 1945 and, unlike the victorious mood of the Fifth (Naxos 8.573029) it reveals a darker response to war and its consequences. The work was condemned by the 'Zhdanov decree' but composer and critics regarded the symphony highly, the noble yet anguished threnody of its central Largo balanced by the painful violence of the outer movements. The work's ending has been described as "one of the most shattering in the repertoire". With themes both capricious and sensuous, the Waltz Suite recycles material from earlier scores to create a remarkably effective quasi-symphonic entity.

    Kevin Puts

    Symphony No. 2 | Flute Concerto

    £8.99
    Adam Walker | Peabody Symphony Orchestra | Marin Alsop

    Awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 2012, Kevin Puts now stands in the forefront of contemporary American composers. His powerfully conceived Symphony No. 2 is a musical illustration of the events of 9/11 and traces a movement from unsuspecting bliss and rhapsody through violent upheaval to a reflective epilogue that contains both uncertainty and hope. Possibly inspired by thoughts of the Mississippi, River's Rush employs novel harmonies, while elegant transparency distinguishes the refined beauty of the Flute Concerto.

    John Field

    Piano Concerto No. 7

    £6.99
    Benjamin Frith | Northern Sinfonia | David Haslam (Concerto No. 7) | Royal Scottish National Orchestra | Andrew Mogrelia

    Dublin-born prodigy John Field enjoyed a wide reputation and great popularity. He was renowned as a soloist for his delicacy of nuance and as a composer for his cultivation of that most poetic of forms, the nocturne. His Piano Concertos were eagerly anticipated and the première of the Concerto No. 7 in Paris on Christmas Day 1832 was attended by both Chopin and Liszt. Ingeniously structured in two movements, its Rondo finale evokes the ballroom and Russia in a series of constant contrasts. The Irish Concerto is a reworking of the first movement of Field's Piano Concerto No. 2 in A flat major. Piano Concertos Nos 1-6 can be heard on 8.553770, 8.553771 and 8.574221.

    William Mathias

    Choral Music

    £8.99
    Albans Cathedral | Michael Papadopoulos | Peter Foggitt | Orchestra Nova | Tom Winpenny

    William Mathias was one of the foremost British composers of the 20th century and one of the very few of his generation from Wales who established an international reputation. The lively Christmas sequences Ave Rex and Salvator Mundi contrast with the splendour and tenderness of the rarely-performed anthem An Admonition to Rulers. Also included are the joyful Wassail Carol, the popular organ solo Toccata Giocosa, and première recordings of All thy works shall praise thee and The Lord's Prayer - respectively the composer's first and last choral works.

    Maximilian Steinberg

    Passion Week

    £8.99
    The Clarion Choir | Steven Fox

    Passion Week is a long-lost choral masterpiece composed by Rimsky-Korsakov's favourite student, heir apparent and son-in-law, Maximilian Steinberg. A product of his interest in the sacred and mystical, it is a tour de force of the systematic use of medieval Church Slavonic chant melodies and shares with Rachmaninov's All-Night Vigil the colourful use of choral textures. Steinberg's settings are complex and rich, with a diverse and sometimes daring harmonic palette, offering eleven movements of distinctive and expressive content that reveal an artist's search for identity at a time of increasing hostility to religion
