    DECEMBER CD OF THE MONTH

    Tony Banks - Five

    £5.00 (£7.99)
    Tony Banks, the renowned founder member and keyboard maven of the rock band Genesis, continues his acclaimed series of orchestral
    compositions with Five. The suite opens with Prelude to a Million Years, originally commissioned for and performed at the Cheltenham Music Festival. Banks’ signature melodic gifts and feel for cinematic scale are all in evidence in Five, just as they were in Six (8.572986) and Seven (8.557466), ‘a work of stirring beauty’ (ProgSheet).

    Franz SCHUBERT

    Winter Journey - Trombone Travels Vol.1

    £5.00 (£7.99)
    Winterreise is one of the greatest, most compelling and intense of all vocal song cycles. For
    the first of his explorations into the world of art song, Matthew Gee has turned to Schubert’s
    work in this unique arrangement for trombone and piano. English titles are used for the poems
    to emphasise the fact that text is no longer the primary expressive vehicle here. Instead, it is
    entrusted to the trombone, an instrument whose vocal qualities and ability to employ glissando,
    vibrato, portamento and microtonal inflections – allied to the use of various mutes – offers an
    astonishing array of tonal possibilities.

    Daniel-Francois -Espirit AUBER

    Overtures

    £5.00 (£7.99)
    Daniel-François-Esprit Auber’s music radiates both his amiable personality and the Parisian
    elegance of his times. The huge success of his operas resulted in a popularity for these
    overtures that rivalled that of Rossini, who was an early influence. Auber’s brilliant and energetic
    style infuses tales of romance both rustic and aristocratic, with moods ranging from dramatic
    heroism to dashing ballroom dances – all portrayed with the signature charm that made him a standard bearer of musical stylishness and good taste. Auber’s opera La Sirène can be found on
    Naxos 8.660436. This is the first volume of a project to record all the overtures to his 31 operas-comiques, seven opéras, three drames lyriques and seven other stage works.

    Pancho VLADIGEROV

    Bulgarian Suite

    £5.00 (£7.99)
    Pancho Vladigerov is considered by many to be the most influential composer that Bulgaria has
    yet produced, gaining fame between the World Wars and earning the admiration of Shostakovich.
    The three works recorded here are a testament to Vladigerov’s mission to bring Bulgarian music
    to international attention, successfully combining elements of folk music with European classical
    tradition. The Vardar Rhapsody has been called ‘the Bulgarian equivalent of Chopin’s Polonaise in A’, and the lively and exotic Seven Symphonic Bulgarian Dances is among the most notable of a series of works that fuse joyous regional melodies with sophisticated Western orchestration.

    Arvydas MALCYS / Peteris VASKS

    Baltic Inspiration - Piano Quartets

    £5.00 (£7.99)
    The Piano Quartet by much-admired Latvian composer Peteris Vasks is one of his longest and
    most imposing chamber works. Unfolding with inexorable expressive force, it utilises dancelike
    motifs and folk-inflected themes throughout. The pieces by Lithuanian composer Arvydas
    Malcys form a cohesive sequence akin to a three-movement piano quartet in which specific
    sound effects, emotional power and colourful textures are in perfect alignment.

    Leopold KOZELUCH

    Symphonies Vol.3

    £5.00 (£7.99)
    In addition to his influence as a pianist and leading keyboard composer in Vienna, the Bohemian
    Leopold Koželuch wrote an important body of symphonies that rank among the most significant
    of their time. The four examples here, heard in original, corrected editions, show consummate
    mastery of proportion, instrumental control and thematic development and all exude characteristic
    freshness and sophistication. The Symphony in B flat, titled L’Irrésolu is especially noteworthy
    not only as his most unusual work in the genre but for its sheer boldness of expression.
    Volume 1 can be heard on 8.573627 and Volume 2 on 8.573872.
