    HANS WERNER HENZE

    NACHTSTÜCKE UND ARIEN

    £11.99
    Hans Werner Henze’s uncompromising individualism and remarkable compositional legacy has ensured him a permanent place in the Western musical landscape. The works in this programme represent his abandonment of avant-garde extremes, and are very much part of this quality of durability in his music. Chief conductor of the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, Marin Alsop is an inspiring and powerful voice in the international music scene whose many Naxos recordings include a complete cycle of Brahms’ symphonies as well as the ‘outstanding achievement’ (BBC Music Magazine) of an acclaimed cycle of the symphonies of Prokofiev.

    ERIC COATES

    SPRINGTIME SUITE; FOUR WAYS SUITE; SAXO-RHAPSODY

    £11.99
    Eric Coates was a master of refined and beautiful melodies, making him a household name during the golden years of British light music in the first half of the 20th century. The Four Ways Suite takes us to all four points of the compass, including exotic China and the jazz rhythms of America, while Springtime evokes both sweeping optimism and soulful memories of a lost age. The virtuoso Saxo-Rhapsody is one of the era’s major saxophone works, and Sleepy Lagoon remains famous as the signature tune to BBC Radio’s Desert Island Discs. High Flight March was to be Coates’ last composition.

    FERDINAND RIES

    COMPLETE WORKS FOR PIANO AND ORCHESTRA

    £29.99
    Ferdinand Ries’ works for piano and orchestra stand alongside those of Hummel as the finest and most important of their kind from the early decades of the 19th century. Ries was long remembered as Beethoven’s friend, pupil and secretary, but these recordings reveal the intense lyricism and rugged Beethovenian grandeur of this pianist-composer’s piano concertos. A rich variety of companion pieces renowned for their brilliant juxtapositions of ravishing beauty and exceptional pianistic virtuosity are also included.

    HENRY PURCELL

    DIDO AND AENEAS

    £19.99
    Henry Purcell was a genius whose ability to combine French and Italian influences transported the English language to new levels of expression in music. Dido and Aeneas was pioneering in its day and is considered one of Purcell’s foremost theatrical works, with a moving tale of love, betrayal and tragedy that has proved to be of unceasing appeal to audiences for centuries. Deborah Warner’s brilliant stage direction combines period colour with present-day dynamism, while William Christie’s affection for this opera shines through in an overwhelmingly acclaimed performance filmed in December 2008 at the Opéra Comique in Paris.

    BENET CASABLANCAS

    L'ENIGMA DI LEA

    £24.99
    Benet Casablancas is widely acclaimed as one of the leading Spanish composers of his generation, and his first opera, L’enigma di Lea, is the fruit of his close collaboration with award-winning writer Rafael Argullol. Reality and myth intertwine and become one in this story of love, grief and passion, as Lea wanders through time and space, a castaway of existence, and the bearer of immortality and a secret that cannot be revealed. The winner of several awards, L’enigma di Lea was declared ‘a roaring theatrical success… beautifully staged and exquisitely sung’ by Barcelona Metropolitan.
