    Maurice Ravel - Orchestral Works Vol.6

    £7.99
    Composed between 1929 and 1931, Ravel’s two piano
    concertos reflect his enthusiasm for jazz, though one
    that was thoroughly absorbed into his own idiom. The
    Concerto in G major, originally conceived as a Basque
    rhapsody, is lightly scored but sports a vivacious
    percussion section, galvanising motor rhythms and a slow movement of astonishing beauty. The Concerto for the Left Hand, commissioned by Paul Wittgenstein who had lost his right arm in the First World War, is a single movement tour de force, as is Tzigane, a gypsy violin showpiece of dazzling virtuosity.

    Chamber Symphonies Nos.1 and 3

    £7.99
    Albéric Magnard became a French national hero when he died defending his home at the outbreak of the First World War and, although he wrote relatively little, his catalogue is full of expansive and beautifully crafted music. Magnard was a
    symphonist at heart, and with its evocations of landscape and expressive lyricism his Third Symphony was admired by Paul Dukas for its ‘perfect clarity’ and as an ‘all too rare creation’. The luminous Fourth Symphony is one of Magnard’s last surviving works – a masterpiece that successfully synthesises Wagnerian high
    drama with Classical transparency.

    Leopoldo MIGUEZ / Glauco VELASQUEZ

    Sonata for Violin & Piano Op.14 / Sonatas for Pian

    £7.99
    Leopoldo Miguez and Glauco Velásquez were both leading figures in Brazil’s classical music scene at the turn of the 20th century, bringing back influences from Europe to a homeland in a state of enormous social upheaval. The lyrical character of Miguez’s ambitious Violin Sonata, Op. 14 is developed in a far more sophisticated and contrapuntal manner to anything previously experienced in Brazil, while Velásquez’s two sonatas are even richer in nuance. The tropical Romanticism of these three works marked an important change in Brazil’s chamber music, from pieces intended largely for domestic use to works
    equal to the noble expression of its new Republic.

    Johannes BRAHMS

    A German Requiem

    £7.99
    Brahms’ fascination with music of the 16th to the 18th centuries was nurtured during his
    appointment in Vienna as conductor of the Singakademie. His own choral compositions
    had gradually moved from an almost pastiche Renaissance style towards a fully mature,
    Romantic approach, culminating in his large-scale choral masterpiece Ein Deutsches Requiem. This performance is sung in a new English translation prepared by Lara Hoggard that fits the original German declamation and with the piano four-hands accompaniment written by Brahms himself.

    Military Beethoven - Compositions & Transcriptions

    £7.99
    Most of the pieces on this album have been designated ‘WoO’ (Works without Opus Number) or bear the numbering from the Hess catalogue of unpublished or unfinished pieces. These include the piano transcription of the topically programmatic Battle Symphony (Wellington’s Victory or The Battle of Vitoria) and the genial variations on Rule Britannia and God Save the King. The Marches, Menuets and Ecossaises derive from a variety of sources, while there is a strangely tragic aspect to the Waltz in C minor.

    The Creatures of Prometheus

    £7.99
    Beethoven was commissioned to write his first stage work – a ballet score for Die Geschöpfe
    des Prometheus (‘The Creatures of Prometheus’) – for the dancer and choreographer Salvatore Viganò, nephew of composer Luigi Boccherini. In the myth, Prometheus is punished by Zeus for stealing fire for the benefit of mankind; in the allegorical ballet, Prometheus brings Enlightenment ideas of art and science to humanity. The overture remains popular and the finale – the theme of which Beethoven was later to use in his ‘Eroica’ Symphony – offers a heroic conclusion.
