ID: STR57013

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.

Paul Patterson’s Phoenix Concerto gives solo oboist Emily Pailthorpe the character of the mythical Phoenix Firebird itself: mercurial, sensuous, mesmerising and captivating.

Commissioned by David Bowerman and first performed in 2009, this is the world premiere recording. Patterson writes “The fire, passion and power of the Phoenix are very present in the outer movements of this piece, with the last movement filled with mesmerising dance-rhythms. The oboe’s unparalleled ability to recreate the feel of exotic birgsong is showcased in the opening cadenza and central slow movement.”

Alongside this new work is Vaughan Williams’ beloved Concerto in A minor for Oboe and Strings, composed for another great exponent of the oboe, Leon Goossens, in 1944. Although superficially a work of pastoral serenity and bucolic piping for the soloist, there are undercurrents that remind the listener that it was composed in wartime.

The Howells Oboe Sonata is another world premiere, here in a new orchestration by Benjamin Wallfisch for strings with harp, played by Hugh Webb. In its original incarnation (not heard until after the composer’s death in 1982, and with heavily orchestral piano writing) the work presented problems to its dedicatee, again Goosens, who said he had „serious reservations“.

Of this new arrangement, however, Pailthorpe says: “I feel liberated… I can float my sound over the breadth of the ECO strings, and the harp texture is wonderful...”. She adds: “The Howells and the Vaughan Williams, both written in the early 1940’s, arise from the ashes of World War II and, in this sense, they seem fitting to include on this “Phoenix” CD.

Founder member of acclaimed chamber ensemble Conchord, Emily Pailthorpe is a graduate of the Julliard School and the youngest ever winner of the Gillet International Oboe Competition. She made her solo Wigmore debut in 2004 and guests as principal oboe with several leading international orchestras.

Requiem K 626 in re (tras.x quartetto Lichtenthal)

Requiem K 626 in re (tras.x quartetto Lichtenthal)
ID: STR11012
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano

Peter Lichtenthal (1780-1853), born in Mozart’s lifetime, became a passionate advocate of his music. Lichtenthal was a doctor by profession, but also a composer and musicologist who wrote an important early biography of Mozart in 1816. Lichtenthal transcribed several Mozart compositions for string quartet, string quintet, and other ensembles. His transcription of the Requiem Mass for string quartet was designed to preserve Mozart’s great melodies in a domestic setting, before the existence of sound recordings. Likewise the beloved Piano Concerto No. 20, transformed here into a version that could be played in many a bourgeois or upper middle class drawing room in the early nineteenth century. The Aglàia Quartet is one form of the larger Ensemble Aglàia, founded in Milan in 1992 and named after one of the three Graces from Greek mythology. They specialize in Baroque and pre-classical music performed on original instruments. They are joined here by Laura Alvini, one of Italy’s best-known keyboard artists for early music, both on harpsichord and fortepiano.
