WALTON - BARBER - Thomas Bowes, violin - Malmö Opera Orchestra - Joseph Swensen, conductor
ID: SIGCD238
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Violin

Walton’s Violin Concerto was composed during a trip to Villa Cimbrone in Italy, where he was bitten by a tarantula. This is reflected in the second movement, based on a ‘tarantella’. The piece has endured as one of his most popular works and is contrasted here with Barber’s Violin Concerto and famous Adagio for Strings. Born in Hertfordshire and graduating from the masterclass of Bela Katona at Trinity College of Music in 1982, Thomas Bowes joined the London Philharmonic in 1985 and a year later the Academy of St Martin in the Fields. In 1987 he gave his London recital debut and between 1988 and 1992 was the founding leader of the Maggini String Quartet. In 1989 he was invited to become the leader of the London Mozart Players, London’s oldest established chamber orchestra, making his BBC Proms debut with them and Jane Glover in 1991. Still in great demand as a guest leader, Bowes has led many of the UK’s finest orchestras In demand as a guest leader, he has led many of the UK’s finest orchestras - including LSO, Philharmonia, London Sinfonietta, SCO and BBC Symphony Orchestra. The Malmö Opera Orchestra and Joseph Swensen join him for this recording. Swensen has served as Principal Conductor of Malmö Opera (Sweden) since 2007 and is Conductor Emeritus of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.

Henri Joseph De Croes - Concerto for Clarinet & Partias

Henri Joseph De Croes - Concerto for Clarinet & Partias
ID: ACDBH048-2
CDs: 1
Type: SACD
Subcollection: Clarinet

Music by Henri Joseph de Croes has been transcribed by Miel Pieters en played by Vlad Weverbergh accompanied through the "Südwestdeutsche Kammerorchester Pforzheim" and a clarinet/string ensemble for the divertimenti.

Henri Joseph De Croes

In the late 18th century, the Thurn and Taxis family of Regensburg was not only well-placed aristocracy, but also held the monopoly on the post and carriage trade in Europe. Karl Anselm, the fourth sovereign of Thurn and Taxis, was a music lover, and he made his court orchestra into one of the most known in Europe. Thanks to the influence of his famous father, Henri Jacques De Croes, from Antwerp, Henri Joseph De Croes (Brussels 1758 - Regensburg 1842) began to play violin in this orchestra when he was just seventeen years old.

The Regensburg court orchestra played a central role in the development of the clarinet in the second half of the 18th century. The orchestra could count many different talented clarinettists in its midst, as well as other musicians who also played clarinet as their second instrument. The court library's rich collection contains no less than 36 clarinet concerti from the second half of the 18th century, including works by Johann Stamitz, Johann Zach, Theodor Freiherr von Schacht, Vaclav Knežek and Henri Joseph De Croes, among others.

The parthias are stylised pieces for a rather odd ensemble of two clarinets, two violas and contrabass. This instrumentation seems to have been standard at the Regensburg court; there are also parthias by Schacht and Knežek for the same sort of ensemble. A parthia (or 'partita' or 'partia') was originally the name for a solo piece, but German composers later used the term as a synonym for a suite. The parthias by De Croes date from 1780 to 1788 and from 1794. They are light pieces, alternating between andante and menuet with a sometimes surprisingly important part for the contrabass. They are written in an original, refined style and never become banal. Henri Joseph De Croes composed his Clarinet Concerto in Bb Major in 1790, one year before Mozart wrote his own Clarinet Concerto. This work sounds light, frivolous, and relatively undramatic, as well, but the strong melodies and fine orchestration show the hand of a talented composer.

Due to family problems (the death of his two children), political causes (the end of the Holy Roman Empire in 1806, the end of the monopoly on the post, and the end of the representative function of the court orchestra) and financial problems, the Henri-Joseph De Croes' oeuvre remained small: just one clarinet concerto, a few symphonies, one ballet, an opera (called The Warlock) and a variety of divertimentos and parthias.

A. VIVALDI - 4 Seasons of Love - IL Tempio Armonico
ID: STR33883
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Cello

Stradivarius is very proud to present Antonio Vivaldi’s masterpiece in a new recording. Il Tempio Armonico rediscovers the deepest essence of The Four Seasons with a performance based on the original manuscripts and carried out 'a parti reali', with arpa doppia and harpsichord as continuo. The outcome is a performance that succeeds in giving back the original freshness, charm and grace of Vivaldi’s masterpiece.

The CD is enriched by two other Concertos by Antonio Vivaldi: Concerto Madrigalesco RV129 and Concerto in C major RV114.

Since its foundation in 1999, Il Tempio Armonico, led by Alberto Rasi, aims for authenticity in performance practice and to re-create music's original appeal and vitality. The musicians of the ensemble are enriched by playing with numerous world-renowned groups and soloists including T. Koopman, J. Savall, M. Huggett and G. Carmignola.

In 2008 Bussotti visited Japan and gave seminars and composition lessons, also presenting an exhibition of his most significant pittografie (scores, drawings) at the Italian Culture Institute of Tokyo. These live recordings bear witness to the concerts that were organised in his honour: in which performances of 'indeterminate' or 'graphic' scores (typical of Bussotti) prevailed.

G. BATTISTELLI - L'Anarca
ID: STR57013
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

The score of Anarca is the fruit of Battistelli's great passion for the writings of Ernst Jünger. Powerfully struck by the novel On the Marble Cliffs, the composer resolved to transform the book into an opera. Originally the work was supposed to be staged in Frankfurt but this project was put aside out of concern for the political ramifications of the adaptation of a writer that had been so close to the Nazi ideology. Here Anarca is proposed with two other pieces performed by the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della Rai. The series Ricordi Oggi is enriched by Giorgio Battistelli's presence, now one of the most appreciated Italian composers.
