R.V.Williams - The Garden Of Proserpine - In The Fen Country - Fen And Flood: Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra -Paul Daniel, conductor

R.V.Williams - The Garden Of Proserpine - In The Fen Country - Fen And Flood: Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra -Paul Daniel, conductor
ID: ALBCD012

Type: CD
Collection: Vocal Collection
Subcollection: Voices and Orchestra

Vaughan Williams completed The Garden of Proserpine in 1899 and the work was begun in 1897 or 1898. For the twenty-something composer, it was a first attempt at a large-scale work, 489 bars long (at 24 minutes) for soprano soloist, chorus and full orchestra. Given that Vaughan Williams had only produced a handful of songs and some chamber pieces by this date, it is an impressive achievement that, in the closing pages, achieves that combination of radiance and nobility that is so characteristic of this composer in his later works. This is a premier recording.
In the Fen Country was completed in 1904 and first performed in 1909 by Thomas Beecham, the melodic outlines and the spirit of folk music is prevalent in this work.
Hadley’s Fen and Flood was inspired by the devastating events of the night of January 31 1953 when a deadly hurricane force wind created a storm tide up to 18 feet above mean sea level. Overall 2,400 people both here and in The Netherlands lost their lives. Vaughan Williams persuaded his friend Hadley to allow him to arrange the work for SATB. The new arrangement was first performed in 1956 and was dedicated to Vaughan Williams. This is a world premier recording.
The recording was recorded at The Lighthouse Poole with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Paul Daniel with soloists Jane Irwin, Mary Bevan, Leigh Melrose and the Joyful Company of Singers under Peter Broadbent.

ID: SIGCD272
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Vocal and Piano

Composing over 150 works for piano and voice over a period of 44 years, the songs of Francis Poulenc remain consistently popular to concert audiences the world over. Varying in their individual style and character in a way that defies generalization, Poulenc set music to a wide range of different French poetry - both ancient and modern, and from the serious to the surreal. This is the third release in our series that will build to encompass the complete songs of Francis Poulenc - performed by some of the greatest singers of the day and accompanied by the exceptional Malcolm Martineau.

Praise for the first disc includes:
"Lisa Milne performs wonderfully throughout this Poulenc disc. She really sings the French as to the Manoir born … A nicely balanced and arranged recital for all of these voices, so a promising start to this new Poulenc series."
Hilary Finch and Andrew McGregor, cD Review, BBc Radio 3

Oliver Knussen - Symphonies No.2 & No.3

Oliver Knussen - Symphonies No.2 & No.3
ID: NMCD175
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Symphony

Two of Knussen's major works of the 1970s - Symphony No.2, a song cycle on texts of Georg Trakl and Sylvia Plath, and Symphony No. 3, a symphonic poem about Shakespeare's Ophelia - are coupled with Coursing, Ophelia Dances and other works.

This release on the NMC mid-price re-issue label Ancora was previously issued on Unicorn-Kanchana Records.
Composer/conductor Oliver Knussen celebrates his 60th birthday this year.
Knussen's Ophelia Dances will be performed by BCMG at his 60th birthday concert held at the CBSO Centre (Birmingham, UK)
A new release on NMC of works by Knussen is released this autumn, featuring BCMG, Ryan Wigglesworth and soprano Claire Booth.
Knussen started composing at the age of 6 and aged 15 he stepped in to conduct his symphony's première at the Royal Festival Hall, London in 1968 after István Kertész fell ill. After that debut, Daniel Barenboim asked him to conduct the work's first two movements in New York a week later.
This is a substantial sampler of Oliver Knussen's output in the 1970s. The two major works are the luminous Second Symphony, which takes the form of a 17-minute song cycle to texts of Georg Trakl and Sylvia Plath and Symphony No. 3, a symphonic poem about Shakespeare's Ophelia.

Brian Elias - The House That Jack Built

Brian Elias - The House That Jack Built
ID: NMCD173
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Orchestral Works

Brian Elias studied at London’s Royal College of Music with Humphrey Searle and Bernard Stevens and privately with Elisabeth Lutyens.

Brian was born in Bombay (Mumbai) and lived there until the age of thirteen.

His ballet The Judas Tree won an Olivier Award for Best New Dance Work and an International Emmy Award for Performing Arts.

Doubles was awarded the Best Orchestral prize at the 2010 British Composer Awards 2010 ‘Purely as psychodrama, The House is gripping. But what makes it really memorable is the clarity and vigour of Elias's orchestral writing. Humming throughout with perky rhythms, never cluttered, and full of imaginative ideas (including the 21st-century equivalent of the Pizzicato Polka), it struck me as among the best things that the 53-year old composer has penned.’ The Times (2002).

The bold and dazzlingly inventive The House That Jack Built - inspired by the rumbustiousness, games and jeers of the playground - is coupled with the elaborate, intense Doubles (a large orchestral work commissioned by the BBC Symphony Orchestra) and A Talisman, for bass-baritone and small orchestra which is based upon Hebrew text inscribed on a silver 19th century amulet - intended to protect against the Evil Eye - which was given to Elias's mother in 1969 by her uncle, whose family emigrated from Kurdistan to Bombay in the middle of the 19th century.
