  • JUNE CD OF THE MONTH: COPLAND

    Symphony No. 3 | Three Latin American Sketches

    £7.99
    Detroit Symphony Orchestra | Leonard Slatkin

    Premièred in 1946, a year after the end of World War II, Copland’s iconic Third Symphony was described by the composer as ‘a wartime piece – or, more accurately, an end-of-war piece – intended to reflect the euphoric spirit of the country at the time.

    Symphony No. 2

    £7.99
    Samuel Adams | National Orchestra Institute Philharmonic | James Ross

    The second Naxos recording by the elite conservatory students of the National Orchestral Institute Philharmonic explores further examples of the breadth of American music. Randall Thompson, famed for his vocal works, is represented by his Symphony No. 2 which, with its
    syncopation and echoes of jazz, helped to establish a bright, vibrant American style.

    Villa-Lobos

    Symphonies Nos. 8, 9 and 11

    £7.99
    Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra | Isaac Karabtchevsky

    By the 1940s Heitor Villa-Lobos was widely recognised as Latin America’s greatest composer.
    Working in the United States gave him new perspectives, and his later symphonies move away from the folk influences and exotic effects of works written in the 1920s and 30s, such as the Bachianas Brasileiras, towards more concise, sometimes neo-classical, models. The Eighth and Ninth share a transparent lightness of touch while the Eleventh, described as a work of ‘immediate charm’, is the perfect introduction to the later work of Villa-Lobos.

    Yaniv d'Or | Dan Deutsch

    Thoughts Observed

    £7.99
    After exploring the music of his Sephardic ancestry on the acclaimed recording Latino Ladino (Naxos 8.573566), Yaniv d’Or brings a refreshing perspective to the Dichterliebe from Schumann’s proverbial ‘year of song’. French songs of the 19th and 20th centuries offer d’Or’s exotic voice further dimensions in the floating harmonies of the young Duparc and Debussy, including Reynaldo Hahn’s beautiful Bach pastiche, and concluding with the classical simplicity of Poulenc’s first songs.

    Rossini

    Adelaide di Borgogna

    £17.99
    Margarita Gritskova, Mezzo-soprano
    Ekaterina Sadovnikova • Miriam Zubieta, Sopranos
    Gheorge Vlad • Yasushi Watanabe, Tenors
    Cornelius Lewenberg, Baritone • Baurzhan Anderzhanov, Bass-baritone • Camerata Bach Choir, Poznan • Virtuosi Brunensis • Luciano Acocella


    Set in medieval Italy, Rossini’s rarely performed Adelaide di Borgogna is based on dramatic historical events that led to Otto the Great (Ottone) of Germany conquering the Kingdom of Italy. Despite its political and warlike subject, Adelaide di Borgogna is full of beautiful music, Rossini using lyrical moments to emphasise emotions and express the triangle of passionate love and rivalry between Adelaide, Ottone and Adelberto.
