    Symphony No. 3 'Organ Symphony'

    £6.99
    Leonard Slatkin | Vincent Warnier | Orchestre National de Lyon

    To celebrate the inauguration of the newly restored former organ of the Palais du Trocadéro and Palais de Chaillot in Paris, the Orchestre National de Lyon and their organist-in-residence, Vincent Warnier, present two major works for organ and orchestra by Camille Saint-Saëns, both of which are historically linked with the great Cavaillé-Coll organs. The composer himself conducted the French première of Cyprès et Lauriers at the Trocadéro in October 1920, entrusting the solo part to Eugène Gigout.

    Caroline Mathilde - Ballet Suites

    £6.99
    BBC Philharmonic

    Sir Peter Maxwell Davies' ballet Caroline Mathilde premièred in 1991 and has been highly acclaimed ever since. Its story concerns the tragic marriage of Caroline to Christian VII of Denmark and is cast in a musical language that embraces expressionism, drama, parody, and overt lyricism. The two concert suites chart the young queen's fall from grace and her eventual banishment into exile. Chat Moss is a richly textured tone poem, while by contrast the Ojai Festival Overture is a lively and extrovert concert piece reflecting Maxwell Davies' fondness for American landscape and culture.

    Piano Trio No. 2

    £6.99
    David Adams | Gould Piano Trio

    One of Britain's leading composers and educators of his day, Stanford considered chamber music an essential representation of 'absolute music'. His mastery of extended instrumental forms truly comes of age in the First Piano Quartet, a work which breathes a confidence and fluency to rival Brahms. An adventurous harmonic palette distinguishes the Second Piano Trio, the Beethovenian pathos of its slow movement contrasting with the defiant turbulence of its cyclically related outer movements. The Gould Trio is 'magnificently stylish' (Gramophone) in their recording of Stanford's First Piano Trio (8.572452).

    British Music for Cello & Piano

    £6.99
    This survey of British cello music focuses on three composers whose critical fortunes have never quite matched their undoubted musical gifts. William Wordsworth always displayed independence of mind and considerable melodic invention, and his cello works reflect a kinship with the music of Bartók and, later, Shostakovich. The short-lived William Busch is represented by his Suite, both a passionate oration and a brilliant dance. Much earlier in the twentieth century the prolific Josef Holbrooke composed a Fantasie-Sonata that is irresistibly lively and virtuosic..

    Frederico Moreno Torroba

    Concierto En Flamenco [Guitar Concertos Vol. 1]

    £6.99
    Málaga Philharmonic Orchestra | Manuel Coves

    An outstanding figure in the history of modern Spanish music, Federico Moreno Torroba is best known for his guitar works, his traditional style embracing the folklore and character of Spain. The playful Diálogos entre guitarra y orquesta adds the luminous sonorities of harp and celesta to its colourful orchestration. Aires de la Mancha is evocative of this distinctive region in central Spain, while the Suite castellana includes Torroba's first ever composition for guitar, Danza. This is the first of three volumes of Torroba's complete works for guitar and orchestra.
