Orchestral Works

On the threshold of the 40th anniversary of death of the prominent 20th century French composer André Jolivet, Firma Melodiya presents a set of works by the French master.

“I want music to have its original ancient sense back, when it was an expression of a magical and invocating element of a religion which united people”, Jolivet wrote.

He was born in Paris to a family of an artist and a pianist, and became known as a member of the composers’ group La jeune France (Young France), which also included Olivier Messiaen. Edgard Varèse, one of the biggest master of musical avant-garde, was Jolivet’s teacher. Arnold Schoenberg’s works also had a certain influence on the young composer.

Jolivet’s works combined diverse features of 20th century art - on the one hand, new musical means (polytonality, atonality), echoes of jazz and non-European musical cultures and, on the other hand, choral polyphony of the renaissance era, and also clarity and accuracy of statement not devoid of theatrical affectation so characteristic of French art.

André Jolivet’s works are performed by well-known Soviet and Russian musicians such as Mstislav Rostropovich (cello), Alexander Korneyev (flute), Valery Popov (bassoon) and others.

Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra, Ensemble of Soloists of the USSR State Symphony Orchestra, State Symphony Orchestra of the Latvian SSR, Moscow Radio Symphony Orchestra, André Jolivet (Composer), G. Rozhdestvensky (Conductor), V. Sinaisky (Conductor), A. Jolivet (Conductor) & 7 more

Cello Concerto No. 2 (1966)

A. Borodin - Complete Symphonies More Orchestral Works - USSR State Symphony Orchestra - E. Svetlanov

A. Borodin - Complete Symphonies  More Orchestral Works - USSR State Symphony Orchestra - E. Svetlanov
ID: MELCD1001946
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Collection:
Orchestral Works
Subcollection: Orchestre

This collection includes some lesser known works by Borodin, including his Petite Suite for piano which is performed here in Glazunov’s instrumentation. Symphony No.3 was never finished. Borodin often played it to his friends and we can listen to it thanks to Glazunov writing down the first movement. All the works are interpreted by the expert Russian conductor Svetlanov.

Symphony No. 1 by A. Borodin composed in 1862-1867 and performed in 1869 is original in the image content. The music, epic according to its scope and Russian by nature, bears the genuine symphonism of the development of the major thematic grain. It was conceived in the land of endless valleys and grand deliberate rivers, it evokes in one's imagination the pictures of the spring waters, awakening of the life forces. The third movement of the symphony has the Oriental intonations. It took a long time (from 1869 to 1876) for Borodin to write Symphony No. 2. The premiere performance took place in 1877. The symphony was composed parallel with the opera “Prince Igor” which is close to the symphony by its imagery and character. The symphony was later called “Heroic” which is in perfect harmony with the music, full of spontaneous force, audacity and scope, the music monumental by its proportions, original by its image con tent which evokes in memory the Russian bylinas. Each of four movements is individual by nature: powerful, ponderous march of Allegro, irresistible in its flight Scherzo, songful Andante, reminding of the legendary singer Bayan, solemn Finale all this is united in the whole monumentary fresco painted with the bold wide strokes. Alexander Borodin began to work over the Third Symphony in winter 1883-84. The work over the Symphony continued up to the end of his life. He often played music of the Symphony to his friends, but he didn't write it down and unfortunately it remained unfinished. Now we can listen to it thanks to A. Glazunov who remembered the author's performing of the first movement of the Symphony and used Borodin's Scherzo, intended initially for a Quartet, for the second movement according to A. Borodins will. As a result of this now we have the score of two movements of the Third Symphony known as “Unfinished”. First the Symphony was performed on October 24, 1887 at a concert dedicated to A. Borodin's memory. The "Petite Suite" for Piano was written in 1885 in usual for the genre inter change of programme and dance miniatures. It is quite an original composition because of expressive manners and innovatory approaching of art task. "Petite Suite" is recorded on this disc in A. Glazunov's instrumentation. In Finale he used music of Borodin's piano Scherzo, repeating it twice in different instrumentation. Orchestral version of the Suite was premiered on October 28, 1889 in St. Petersburg, performed by the orchestra under Rimsky-Korsakov. Overture to the opera “Prince Igor” was written from memory and orchestrated by A. Glazunov, who heard its piano version in the author's performance. It is based on contrasts of Russian and oriental, polovtsian images, on opera's melodies and tunes.

Type: CD
Collection:
Symphony
Subcollection: Orchestre

This release features Schumann’s symphonies edited by George Szell.

These versions were a result of the conductor’s tremendous experience combined with a most delicate feeling for style and were the choice of Rozhdestevensky for these performances.

Schumann: Symphonies Nos. 1-4 (complete) edited by George Szell

"Among the German composers, the first place, after Beethoven, indisputably belongs to Schumann… Schumann's symphonies yield to Beethoven's Ninth only … in thought, his overtures are more diverse and deeper than Mendelssohn's ones," the Russian composer and music critic César Cui said about Robert Schumann's symphonic works. The composer's symphonic heritage includes four symphonies written within the 1840-1850s: symphony No. 1 in B flat major (known as Spring), Op. 38; symphony No. 2 in C major, Op. 61; symphony No. 3 "Rhenish" in E flat major, Op. 97; and symphony No. 4 in D minor, Op. 120. This Firma Melodiya release features Schumann's symphonies edited by George Szell and performed by the Estonian Symphony Orchestra conducted by the celebrated Gennady Rozhdestvensky. "The remarkable conductor George Szell made superb versions of Schumann's four symphonies. These recordings have been made based on his versions … they are a result of the conductor's tremendous experience combined with a most delicate feeling for style…" that's how the maestro explained his choice of Szell's versions.
