    KODÁLY

    SONATA FOR SOLO CELLO

    £7.99
    Zoltán Kodály’s later years were dominated by a series of choral works but his early reputation centred upon chamber music, notably two string quartets, a Cello Sonata (8.553160) and the two masterpieces heard on this recording. The Duo for Violin and Cello, Op. 7 combines Classical form with folk influence, while the Sonata for Solo Cello, Op. 8, with its expanded harmonies and tone colours, is one of the greatest solo cello works since Bach’s Cello Suites. György Ligeti continued the Hungarian lineage with his Sonata for Solo Cello, a succinct but pivotal work in his compositional development.

    PETER BREINER

    SLOVAK DANCES

    £16.99
    Peter Breiner is one of the world’s most performed composer/arrangers, with a boundless musicality that has led him to create fusions of music from a variety of genres. Drawing on traditions established by Brahms and Dvorák and showcasing leading folk music soloists, his Slovak Dances are an exuberant and kaleidoscopic monument rooted in Slovak musical folklore. It comprises 16 symphonic fantasias on songs that evoke varying emotions with an autobiographical element that follows Breiner’s life from his origins in Humenné and Košice to New York.

    LISZT

    Transcriptions (Vol. 55)

    £7.99
    This programme of Liszt Transcriptions featuring Andrey Ivanov marks the first release in a recording partnership between Naxos and the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. Copenhagen-born Eduard Lassen spent 40 years in Weimar where he was to succeed Liszt as music director in 1858. Lassen was an accomplished stage composer writing music for Das Nibelungenlied and Goethe’s Faust that enjoyed considerable popularity, and from which Liszt made piano transcriptions, drawing on high points in the dramas. He also wrote music for a play by Spanish poet Calderón, to which Liszt responded by transcribing an extensive Symphonic Intermezzo.

    Joan MANÉN

    Violin Concerto No. 3 ‘Ibérico’

    £16.99
    Manén was an admired and prolific Catalan composer who wrote in all genres, from opera to transcriptions. He was also one of the leading violinists of his day and made the first recording of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto. Manén’s Violin Concerto No. 3 ‘Ibérico’ is a brilliantly written and unashamedly Romantic work that exudes Iberian vitality without recourse to Hispanic effects. Cast on a huge scale, the Symphony No. 2 ‘Ibérica’ calls for an exceptionally large orchestra, with music that is pastoral, Spanish-flavoured and, at times, solemn.
