    Edward Gregson

    Instrumental Music

    £7.99
    Edward Gregson’s career has followed two parallel paths, one to the top tier of music education and the other towards the international reputation he now enjoys as a composer. This representative selection is Gregson’s own and spans more than half a century, from the youthful exuberance of his Oboe Sonata to specially prepared versions of two of his most evocative compositions, Three Matisse Impressions and Love Goddess. The selected soloists are drawn from two leading symphony orchestras with which Gregson enjoys special relationships.

    British Guitar Music, Vol. 2

    DOWLAND • BRITTEN • RUTTER • SCOTT • MAW

    £6.49
    The iconic guitarist Julian Bream commissioned music from a number of British composers with international reputations, thus creating a whole new repertoire of guitar music. He also played an important role in the revival of interest in the Elizabethan lute, his recitals bringing Early Music to a new audience. John Dowland’s beautiful Pavan is followed by Britten’s Nocturnal after John Dowland, written for Bream and one of the most
    significant guitar works of the 20th century. Cyril Scott’s Sonatina, overlooked for decades, is heard here in the premiere recording of Bream’s revised edition. Volume 1 can be heard on 8.557040.

    Ruggero LEONCAVALLO: Pagliacci

    Pietro MASCAGNI: Cavalleria rusticana

    £19.99 (£24.99)
    These two pinnacles of Italian opera, Pagliacci and Cavalleria rusticana have it all – love, infidelity, betrayal, jealousy and murder. Both are classic examples of verismo operas that dramatise the
    lives of ordinary people: Pagliacci fuelled by the tension between everyday life and the aesthetic world of the stage, Cavalleria rusticana juxtaposing unbridled passion with profound faith. Robert
    Carsen’s widely acclaimed 2019 production plays a masterful game of theatre-in-theatre, avoiding clichés and calling into question the nature of reality.

    Sergey PROKOFIEV

    Complete Symphonies

    £29.99
    Sergey Prokofiev’s seven symphonies are acknowledged as one of the major cycles of the 20th century, and these recordings with Marin Alsop and the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra have received widespread critical acclaim. From the crisp vitality of the youthful ‘Classical’ Symphony to the viscerally exciting Third, the Fifth Symphony which for Prokofiev represented ‘the grandeur of the human spirit’, and the deeply
    moving and heartfelt Sixth Symphony, this is an unforgettable collection crowned by the bitter-sweet Seventh Symphony, the composer’s final significant work

    Paul WRANITZKY

    Orchestral Works, Vol. 1

    £7.99
    Czech-born Paul Wranitzky, a contemporary of Mozart, was the most important symphonist in Vienna at the turn of the 18th century. To mark the ascension to the throne of Franz II in 1792, Wranitzky wrote the grand Symphony in C major, a work of regal quality and festive exuberance. Wranitzky’s mature symphonic style is on display in the Symphony in B flat major, with its expanded orchestral forces, contrasting textures and broad musical invention. Overtures from two operas offer a sampling of Wranitzky’s dramatic writing for the stage.

    Johann Simon MAYR

    Messa di Gloria

    £7.99
    Mayr’s Masses were in demand across Europe, and their composition is rooted in the Italian tradition of the messa concertata which demands division into separate vocal numbers. The Mass in E minor has long been recognised as an outstanding example of Mayr’s late style, with its polyphonic mastery and dialogues between singers and concertante solo instruments being exceptionally convincing. The Mass in F minor evokes both joy and deep melancholy, though accompanied, as always, by Mayr’s notable gift for melodic beauty.

    Georges ONSLOW

    String Quintets, Vol. 4 - Nos. 23 and 31

    £7.99
    Georges Onslow is best known for a body of chamber music that follows the musical lineage of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. A master of the quintet medium, Onslow offered variations of ensemble to players, the two presented here being cast for string quartet and double bass. The tempestuous Quintet No. 23 in A minor is charged with almost ceaseless nervous energy and Schubertian lyricism; the mature Quintet No. 31 in A major is both subtle and elegant, with a brilliant assemblage of details such as walking bass and violin-cello duets
