NEW ON NAXOS

The spotlight recording in the Junel 2018 issue of NEW ON NAXOS is the newest album from the National Orchestral Institute Philharmonic. Conducted by David Alan Miller for the second time, this disc features three 20th-21st American orchestral masterworks – John Harbison’s jazz-imbued Symphony No. 4, Steven Stucky’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Second Concerto for Orchestra, and Carl Ruggles’ tone poem Sun-Treader. The two previous recordings of the NOI Philharmonic both received ICMA nominations.

Other highlights include:

• This final volume in the series includes Concerto No. 13, which ranks alongside Devienne's finest concertos with its profuse thematic ideas and sophisticated orchestral writing. As a leading virtuoso in Paris, Devienne was perfectly placed to write Symphonies concertantes, glittering showcases that remain among the best of their kind. Giovanni Battista Viotti’s arrangement of one of his best-known Violin Concertos makes an ideal companion piece to the other works on this recording.

• A live recording of Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s Cello Concerto, by cellist Brinton Averil Smith and the Houston Symphony conducted by Kazuki Yamada. Also included are transcriptions for cello and piano by the composer – with several world premiere recordings – performed by Smith and his wife, pianist Evelyn Chen.

• Japanese composer Toshio Hosokawa’s orchestral triptych – Meditation, Nach dem Sturm and Klage – in response to the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, performed by the Basque National Orchestra under Jun Märkl. Featured vocal soloists are sopranos Susanne Elmark and Ilse Eerens, and mezzo-soprano Mihoko Fujimura. The disc also includes Autumn Wind with shakuhachi player Tadashi Tajima.

Inspired by the personality, prodigious technique and musicality of the cellist Gregor Piatigorsky, Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s Cello Concerto is a work of imposing scale and demanding virtuosity, but also with a rare beauty and warmth of expression.

Image La campana sommersa (DVD)
The opera La campana sommersa (‘The Sunken Bell’) is Respighi’s operatic masterpiece. A symbolist drama on a supernatural theme, it is steeped in beauty, mystery and foreboding, and orchestrated with the Romantic opulence familiar from his sumptuous trilogy of Roman tonepoems. Its triumph at the New York Metropolitan Opera in 1928 was repeated at La Scala, Milan, and this most recent production at the Teatro Lirico di Cagliari, worldrenowned for its staging of rarities, was hailed for its ‘brilliant production’ and magnificent performances.

Image Samsara; Phonologie Symphonique; Bacchanale
Toshiro Mayuzumi was one of Japan’s foremost 20th-century composers, enjoying a distinguished international reputation on a par with that of Toru Takemitsu. His enthusiasm for avant-garde Western music led him to study in Paris.The Phonologie Symphonique is a synthesis of Var?se-like acoustical experiment and serial techniques. The jazz-tinted Bacchanale is Mayuzumi's attempy to produce ‘a cosmos of sounds reflecting the vital energies of the origin of music’, and the symphonic poem Samsara is a musical expression of Buddhist teaching. A Marco Polo reissue. Other orchestral works by Mayuzmi can be heard on 8.557693.

Image Symphonies Nos. 1 and 2
Alexander Moyzes was one of the leading Slovak composers of his generation.

This is Volume 1 of the complete Moyzes symphonies recorded on Marco Polo in the 1990s.

Image Works for Flute, Vol. 2
Beethoven’s mastery in all genres extends to the sequence of music he wrote involving the flute. The Serenade in D major illustrates the creative purposes to which he put traditional material and the inventive contrasts he embedded in this six-movement work. Volume 1 is available on 8.573569.

Image Piano Quintet; Symphony No. 10
Gloria Coates’s personal sound-world is unlike any other in contemporary music. Her Piano Quintet is rooted in the poetry of fellow American pioneer Emily Dickinson, with half of the string quartet tuned a quarter-tone higher than the other, the strange beauty of the music emerging in glacial landscapes and shimmering microtones. Symphony No. 10 evokes the archaeological ruins of a Celtic tribe, inspiring a torrent of dramatic percussion and long held tones that curve and shake in a moving body of sound. First recordings. This is the seventh Naxos album of music by Coates.

Image Violin and Viola Works
The sonatas recorded here encompass almost the entirety of Hans Werner Henze’s creative life. Composed in difficult conditions just after WWII, the Violin Sonata covers the broadest range of human emotions, and is in some ways a study for the extraordinary First Violin Concerto (recorded by Sheppard Sk?rved on 8.557738). Steeped in Italian mythology, the Solo Violin Sonata is ‘a real piece of theatre’, as is the emotionally shattering Viola Sonata.

Image Venetian Solo Motets
Although Mayr became one of the most popular opera composers in Europe in the period preceding Rossini, he started out principally as a church musician, dividing his time between his native Bergamo and Venice. Tailor-made for the singers of the day, his Venetian solo motets are unusual in taking the form of small-scale religious operas.

Image Songs and Folk Songs

A milestone in the history of the novel, Samuel Richardson’s epistolary and elaborate Clarissa follows the life of a chaste young woman desperate to protect her virtue. When beautiful Clarissa Harlowe is forced to marry the rich but repulsive Mr. Solmes, she refuses, much to her family’s chagrin. She escapes their persecution with the help of Mr. Lovelace, a dashing and seductive rake, but soon finds herself in a far worse dilemma. Lovelace is a devil in disguise: he promptly imprisons Clarissa, and is determined to break her will. Terrifying and enlightening, Clarissa weaves a tapestry of narrative experimentation into a gripping morality tale of good triumphing over evil. The recording is divided into three volumes.

Image The Golden Bowl (22 CD)
Wealthy Maggie Verver has everything she could ever ask for - except for a husband, and a title. While in Italy, acquiring art for his museum back in the states, Maggie’s millionaire father Adam decides to remedy this and acquire a husband for Maggie. Enter Prince Amerigo, of a titled, but now poor, aristocratic Florentine family. Amerigo is the perfect candidate. Delighted, Maggie then reciprocates by choosing a partner for her widower father: childhood friend Charlotte Stant. The stage is set, and what unfolds is a deep and gripping exploration of fidelity and the politics of love and marriage. Published in 1904, The Golden Bowl displays Henry James at his finest: James weaves scene upon scene, set piece upon set piece, into a seamless whole, through a richly dense tapestry of beautiful, flowing prose. Along with The Ambassadors and The Wings of the Dove, it constitutes James’s final, and most rewarding, phase as a novelist.

Image Justine (10 CD)
Underneath the patina of civilized society lies the Sadean demimonde: a bundle of lustful appetites fueled by momentary impulse and a desire for unfettered indulgence. And the target of this savagery: Justine de Bertole, a pious and virginal heroine. While her amoral sister Juliette gets all the wonders in the world, virtuous and faithful Justine is subjected to punishment after punishment at the hands of sadistic and abusive deviants. Grotesque, inhumane and compelling, Sade’s novel overturns Rousseau’s views of the social contract, and the common trope that punishment only visits sinners, to deliver a passionate treatise on good and evil, virtue and sin.

Image Arabian Sands (11 CD)
Arabian Sands is Wilfred Thesiger’s stunning account of five years spent crossing the Arabian Peninsula by foot and on camels, with nomadic Bedouin tribesmen as guides. Traveling between 1945 and 1950, the British explorer treks through Yemen, The Empty Quarter, Oman and parts of the then Trucial States, crossing and re-crossing around 250,000 miles of this most inhospitable terrain. He was the first European ever to set eyes on the dunes and wadis of these deserts. Faced with constant challenges and trials beneath the punishing sun, his journey is also spiritual and enriching, as it requires the utmost courage, patience, generosity and humor. In clear and evocative prose, Thesiger documents a journey of unimaginable hardship and startling beauty, as well as a time, place and people on the cusp of change.
