    Ravel

    Antar

    £8.99
    The impact of Russian and Oriental culture on Ravel’s formative years retained a hold on him throughout his life. His colourfully reorchestrated selections from Rimsky-Korsakov’s symphonic suite ‘Antar’ and opera Mlada, with interpolations of his own music, as the incidental score for a theatre production are heard here in their première recording, revived and reconstructed alongside a new text that symbolizes the romance and chivalric spirit of Antar the warrior-poet and his beloved Abla. Ravel’s fascination with the exotic is brought together with Debussy’s influence in the ravishing and enduringly popular song cycle Shéhérazade.

    Shostakovich

    Chamber Symphony Op. 73s, Symphony for Strings Op.

    £8.99
    An eminent violist and conductor, Rudolf Barshai was responsible for five transcriptions of Shostakovich’s String Quartets and this recording completes the sequence with the Third and Tenth (Volume 1 is on 8.573466). Barshai recast String Quartet No. 3 as a chamber symphony for strings and woodwind, the latter adding a sense of foreboding to the texture and engaging in whimsical dialogues during a work full of terseness and piercing power. Fashioning a Symphony for Strings from the Tenth Quartet soon after its première, Barshai graphically charts its movement from innocence lost and then tentatively regained.

    Novak

    In the Tatra Mountains | Lady Godiva Overture | Et

    £8.99
    Emerging from the fertile background of Bohemian nationalism, Vítezslav Novák’s music achieved cult status in his homeland for its richness of melody and full-blown romantic orchestral colour. The
    lush timbres and monumental solemnity of In the Tatra Mountains were inspired by the composer’s journeys in this magnificent region. Eternal Longing is based on a poem by Hans Christian Andersen,
    while the dramatic Lady Godiva Overture, complete with tolling bells at the finale, was written by Novák in two days and is considered one of his most powerful works.

    Torroba

    Guitar Concertos Vol. 2

    £8.99
    Federico Moreno Torroba composed about one hundred works for the guitar, thereby reinforcing his status as one of Spain’s great twentieth-century composers. Homenaje a la seguidilla pays lively
    tribute to that characteristically Spanish song and dance, while the Tonada concertante is in turns playful and introspective.
