    CAMILLE SAINT-SAËNS: PIANO CONCERTOS NOS. 1 AND 2

    £8.99
    Romain Descharmes | Malmö Symphony Orchestra | Marc Soustrot

    The sheer attractiveness of Saint-Saëns’s music has ensured its immortality in the canon of French romantic composers. Spanning almost four decades, his five piano concertos vary widely in character but offer some of his most exciting if unorthodox creations, and represent an important evolutionary phase in the French piano concerto. The Piano Concerto No. 1 in D major, widely considered the first by a major French composer, is a youthful and exuberant piece, and the virtuosic Piano Concerto No. 2 in G minor is one of Saint-Saëns’s most popular and frequently performed works in any genre.

    RICHARD WAGNER

    SYMPHONY IN C MAJOR

    £8.99
    Although he is best known for his innovative operas and iconic music dramas, Richard Wagner maintained a keen interest in symphonic composition throughout his career. This is the first of a two volume edition of his purely orchestral works, the second of which will appear In June. Written in his late teens and early twenties, these two symphonies stand as a tribute to Wagner’s passion for his great idol Beethoven. The Symphony in C major absorbs the energetic fire and rhythmic dynamism of Beethoven’s Seventh and Eighth Symphonies, while the Symphony in E major was alas left unfinished at its beautifully warm and lyrical Adagio cantabile.

    JENNIFER HIGDON

    ALL THINGS MAJESTIC

    £8.99
    Jennifer Higdon is one of the most distinguished composers working in America today, and her music is a perfect fit for the Nashville Symphony, which has long maintained a commitment to championing the country’s most important voices. All Things Majestic is a four-movement suite which vividly captures the breath-taking beauty of the American landscape, and her wonderfully expressive concertos for viola and oboe bring out the unique textures and sonorities of these frequently overlooked solo instruments. Higdon’s Viola Concerto was written for the distinguished
    violist Roberto Díaz, who plays it on this disc.

    BÉRIOT

    VIOLIN CONCERTOS NOS. 4, 6 & 7

    £8.99
    In 1896 The Strad described Charles Auguste de Bériot, whose playing created a sensation in London and Paris, as ‘the founder of the modern Franco-Belgian [violin] school’. His Violin Concertos include plenty of innovative features, such as ricochet bowing, double-stops and harmonics. These techniques and other innovations in formal structure are, however, all in the service of expressive communication and stylish elegance. The romantic Scène de ballet is perhaps Bériot’s best known work, while the Air Varié, Op. 5 follows a long tradition of writing variations on popular themes.

    DUTILLEUX

    SYMPHONY NO. 2 'LE DOUBLE'

    £8.99
    Henri Dutilleux’s perfectionism resulted in a distinctive and individual musical language of rare poetry and invention. The interplay of stereophonic and polyrhythmic effects and jazzy brass writing in Symphony No. 2 ‘Le Double’ forms, in the composer’s own words, ‘a musical play of mirrors and of contrasting colours’, while Timbres, espaces, mouvement is Dutilleux’s response to Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night, a ‘longing for the infinity of nature’.
