The Opera Group's lively production of Edward Rushton's new opera, described as 'part satire on rampant consumerism, part psychological thriller.’

Edward Rushton’s new opera, The Shops is described as ‘part satire on rampant consumerism, part psychological thriller’. Its central character, Christoph Schmalhans, is an obsessive stamp collector. He manages to steal prize examples from museums with the aid of his girlfriend Francesca, who distracts attention by causing scenes. His activities eventually attract the interest of the police and psychologists. In between, there is a running commentary on the phenomenon of shopaholics, along with a song-and-dance number from members of a mutual support group.

Darren Abrahams (tenor), Anna Dennis (soprano), Phyllis Cannan (contralto), Richard Burkhard (baritone), Louise Mott (mezzo-soprano), Paul Reeves (bass)

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.
