    AUGUST CD OF THE MONTH

    Derek Bermel – Migrations

    £7.99
    Migrations provides a generous view of Derek Bermel’s superb craftsmanship and eclectic style, in which classical forms, world music, jazz, blues and American folk music create a mix that reaches directly into the body and the heart. Commissioned by Wynton Marsalis, Migration Series has its roots in African American music, its impeccable counterpoint and biting rhythms expressed through orchestration that sounds like a city coming to life.

    Franco FACCIO

    Amleto ('Hamlet')

    £17.99
    First performed in 1865, Amleto (‘Hamlet’) represented a radical new development in Italian opera, the nuovo melodramma. Composer Franco Faccio and his librettist Arrigo Boito sought a greater degree of musical unity in staged productions and a more equal relationship between text and music. In Hamlet, a play that many then considered un-operatic, they found the perfect medium through which to explore the work’s philosophical and dramatic power – not least the great set-piece scenes: Amleto’s soliloquy ‘Essere o non essere!’

    Ludwig van BEETHOVEN

    The Creatures of Prometheus (version for piano)

    £7.99
    Ludwig van Beethoven was commissioned by the dancer and choreographer Salvatore Viganò to write the ballet The Creatures of Prometheus – an allegorical story based on the myth of Prometheus – and the composer’s piano version of the orchestral score was published not long after its premiere in 1801. Beethoven turned his symphonic style and skill in pictorial representation to conjure scenes of stormy excitement alongside elegant dances and the sublime aura of beauty surrounding the legendary musicians Orpheus, Amphion and Arion. The Finale is crowned by a theme that would later be used in the ‘Eroica’ Symphony.

    Dan LOCKLAIR

    Symphony No.2 'America'

    £7.99
    This world premiere recording of four recent orchestral works by acclaimed composer Dan Locklair opens with the powerful Symphony No. 2 ‘America’, the orchestral fireworks of which celebrate three significant American holidays. This work was summed up by Classical Voice North Carolina as ‘soon-to-be-a-hit’ for its highly rhythmical and lyrical character, typical features of Locklair’s music. Hail the Coming Day is a festive celebration of the consolidation of the towns of Winston and Salem in 1913, while the antiphonal dialogues of PHOENIX celebrate new life. The Concerto for Organ and Orchestra movingly unites ancient and modern musical techniques to create a work of dazzling and exquisite beauty.

    Sergey Ivanovich TANEYEV

    Suite de Concert, Op.28

    £7.99
    Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto is the quintessential national virtuoso showpiece, but other Russian composers have contributed strongly to the genre of works for solo violin and orchestra. Tchaikovsky’s student Taneyev, who rose to eminence in Moscow, wrote a memorable Suite de Concert that followed the model of the Baroque suite while infiltrating it with warm lyricism and brilliant variations.
