Horizon 3 - Recordings from the 2008-2009 season

Horizon 3 - Recordings from the 2008-2009 season
ID: RCO10003
CDs: 1
Type: SACD
Collection: World Premiere Recording

Recorded Live at Concertgebouw Amsterdam on 19, 20 March 2009 (Van der Aa); 22, 23 January 2009 (Ketting); 10, 11 October 2008 (Keuris, Gubaidulina, Nas).

With this third release in the Horizon series, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra once again underlines the importance it attaches in its concert programming to performances of contemporary music. The compositions featured on this CD represent a selection of recordings of contemporary works which the orchestra premiered in its 2008-9 season (some of which were commissioned by the orchestra) or of which few or no quality recordings are available. Two Dutch composers of the latest generation (Nas and van der Aa) are brought together here with two members of the older guard (Ketting and Keuris). Sofia Gubaidulina, for her part, represents the international contingent on this CD. In its performance of these works, the orchestra was led by conductors Ed Spanjaard, Markus Stenz and David Robertson. The CD also features soloist mezzo-soprano Christianne Stotijn, to whom van der Aa dedicated his song cycle.

"I wanted to feel the same excitement, the same itch, with new music as when I discovered a new piece by, say, Ravel in my teens"


After the extremely turbulent 20th century, of which the musical history may be defined as an endless series of "style wars", now, in the 21st century, composers seem to be freer than ever to choose whatever means of expression they want. But Jeppe Moulijn studied composition in an environment where there was little or no understanding for his impassioned embracing of late romanticism and the early 20th century. But Moulijn has not been standing still and now has left all naiveté behind. He is a composer of today.

This CD is a document showing this process, from the neo-romantic violin concerto
of 2005 to Et Fit Lux of 2012.

Moulijn's work can be described as expressive, rich in instrumental colours and details. It is accessible, without consciously aiming for it.

"Composers should think from the standpoint of the musician. And musicians should try to 're-create' like a composer"

Moulijn's work is first and foremost formed by his 20 years of experience as an orchestra conductor, and therefore of a musical tradition reaching from Bach to the present day.

Bartók: Duke Bluebeard's Castle, Sz. 48, Op. 11

An unforgettable live-concert recording, selected from the Philharmonia Orchestra and Esa-Pekka Salonen’s season of works by Béla Bartók - „Infernal Dance“.

Sir John Tomlinson Bluebeard
Michelle DeYoung Judith
Juliet Stevenson Narrator
Philharmonia Orchestra
Esa-Pekka Salonen conductor

Reviews of the concert from which this recording was taken:
„John Tomlinson and Michelle DeYoung were vocally so commanding as to render „choreography“ entirely superfluous. Tomlinson's cavernous voice seemed to embody the very interior world of his castle - its sadness, darkness, emptiness - his Hungarian so vivid and expressive in itself that it became another sonority in Bartok's aural palette. He was quite extraordinary. Musically stunning ..." The Arts Desk

"The part of Judith was well taken by Michelle DeYoung but it was the portrayal of Tomlinson that stole the show. At first predatory and prowling - no one can prowl like John Tomlinson - he visibly collapsed into himself as his secrets were exposed. And never was that magnificently gnarled tone put to better use." The Evening Standard

Signum are proud to reissue Classical Opera’s debut CD, ‘The A-Z of Mozart Opera’, selected for Gramophone magazine’s annual Critic’s Choice in 2007. Based on the coincidence that Mozart’s first opera (Apollo et Hyacinthus) begins with ‘A’ and his last (Die Zauberflo?te) with ‘Z’, this disc takes the listener on a chronological journey through Mozart’s operatic canon, featuring an aria or ensemble from fifteen of his operas.

“My personal pick for giving this year is the Classical Opera Company’s glorious The A-Z of Mozart Opera, which is fresh, diverse, insightful and illuminating (everything that such recital anthologies usually fail to be). ... “... uniformly superb interpretations... an auspicious de?but recording of intelligence, finesse and quality.” Gramophone
