Théodore Gouvy: Symphonie No.2 F major

Théodore Gouvy: Symphonie No.2 F major

Type: CD
Kolektion: Orchestral WorksSubkolektion: Orchester

Gouvy was more concerned with balance, moderation and good taste than in operatic glamour that would doubtless have brought him fame and fortune. But, as he came from a wealthy family, he never had to accept artistic compromise in order to survive, and was thus able to compose in the idiom that interested him most, even if it seems an unpopular one. Even the hard-to-please Hector Berlioz expressed with surprise “…that a composer of his importance should still be so little known in Paris…”
Born into a French family with its roots in Belgium, he was German by nationality and could not attend the Paris Conservatorie. He took private lessons and became a respected pianist, but far from the virtuosos in the music salons. The music he composed was far from fashion and might not have brought him acclaim in France, but it did earn him respect from his colleagues.

The name of Victor Fedotov, an outstanding Russian conductor, one of the most eminent figures in the Russian culture, is well known among the music-lovers all over the world. The People's Artist of Russia, Professor Victor Fedotov is a brilliant representative of the St-Petersburg school. Victor Fedotov was educated at St. Petersburg Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatoire, where he studied under Professor Ilya Musin. He graduated from the Orchestra Department in 1956 and the Department of Opera and Symphony Conducting in 1963. As a student, he already served as a conductor at the Conservatoire Opera Studio, performing The Mermaid by Dargomyzhsky, Evgeny Onegin and Queen of Spades by Tchaikovsky and many others. Since 1953 Victor Fedotov worked in the Mariinsky Orchestra as a member-artist. In 1963 he made his debut there as a conductor with Carmen by Bizet. He performed it by heart, without the scores; since then, maestro Fedotov kept the tradition of conducting by heart during all his career. All his artistic life was bound with the Mariinsky Theatre. An excellently educated musician, possessing phenomenal memory and marvelous capacity for work, he soon became one of the leading conductors of the Mariinsky Theatre. In 1964 together with Konstantin Sergeyev he took part in staging of the new version of Sergei Prokofiev's ballet Cinderella. Later he worked with Natalia Kasatkina, Vladimir Vasiliev, Oleg Vinogradov and other prominent ballet-masters. During his work at the theatre the conductor's repertoire totaled over 60 classical operas and ballets. He performed all ballets by Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev, ballets by Glazunov, Minkus, Asafiev, Glier, Shostakovich, Khachaturian, Petrov, other composers. His opera repertoire included works by Glinka, Tchaikovsky, Mussorgsky, Bizet, Wagner, Verdi, Rimsky-Korsakov, Shebalin, Uspensky. Since 1964 he started touring abroad. His first tour was with the Mariinsky Theatre to the USA and Canada. Later on, he toured as a guest conductor and musical director of new performances in major opera houses of the world. Since 1966, he regularly worked in the Royal Covent Garden Theatre in London. In 1967, he staged Evgeny Onegin by Tchaikovsky in Germany with the Dresden Staads Orchestra and famous singers Vladimir Atlantov, Boris Shtokolov and Irina Bogacheva as soloists. He performed in the Metropolitan-Opera, Grand Opera, Royal Theatre in Sweden, New State National Theatre in Tokyo and many others. Victor Fedotov appeared also as a symphonic conductor. Since 1965 he played with the world-famous Leningrad Philharmony Orchestra (Evgeny Mravinsky's orchestra), Royal Orchestra of Covent Garden in London, London Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmony Orchestra, Orchestra of the Vienna Theatre, Liceo of Barcelona, Gewandhaus in Leipzig, Japanese NHK, Tokyo Philharmony Orchestra and many others. Every year he participated in the important music festival Music Spring in Leningrad and did a lot to revive an imperial theatre tradition of symphony nights in Mariinsky. In 1973, a symphony concert commemorating Sergei Rachmaninov's centenary was held on the initiative of Victor Fedotov and under his conductorship. He made lots of recordings for CDs, radio and TV in Russia and abroad. His interpretations were highly appraised by the press. "For the connoisseur of Tchaikovsky the opportunity to hear how the score of the Sleeping Beauty was read by Victor Fedotov represents pleasure both extremely rare and really fascinating", a Daily Telegraph critic wrote. "The Orchestra under Victor Fedotov with his precise and broad gesture, has transferred with a rare transparency all the charm of music by Rimsky-Korsakov", the Powery-ecko newspaper observed in 1974. Sunday Telegraph wrote that "…a great skill of the conductor Victor Fedotov in possession of the orchestra and his amazing consolation with the musicians… became a practical lesson, how to conduct…" Maestro Fedotov prepared and staged quite a number of contemporary performances, many of them were world premieres. The composers he worked with paid a high tribute to his professionalism, his enthusiasm in work. Andrei Petrov, a famous composer, wrote about Victor Fedotov: "I had an opportunity to value many remarkable qualities of this conductor… he always works very enthusiastically… besides, he has a gift of "seeing" the music, not only hearing it; even during the proof rehearsals, it sounds for him very theatrically and expressively". Andrei Petrov's ballet Creation of the World, one of the most popular Russian ballets in the end of the century, was staged under the directorship of Maestro Fedotov in 1971. Julia Makhalina, a famous ballerina and a star of the Mariinsky Theater, said: “I will always admire Maestro Fedotov. I dance under his musical directorship since 14; I am sure that all performances he conducts are always successful.” Victor Fedotov was a professor of St. Petersburg Conservatoire, gave master classes in Russia and abroad. Many of his pupils work successfully at musical theatres and symphony orchestras all over the world. Victor Fedotov worked for Lenfilm Film Studio. With his participation, music for dozens of films of various cinema genres was recorded. In 1993 the film director Oleg Yeryshev made a film dedicated to Victor Fedotov and his children - talented musicians Polina and Maxim Fedotovs ("I live within Music, it is by Music that I live" - the Fedotovs"). He was awarded the highest in Russia honorary title for artists: People's Artist of Russian Federation. Since 1996, he was a member of the Petrovskaya (Peter) Academy of Arts and Sciences. In 1998, he got the Evening Standard award for outstanding achievements in classical music performing. One of the small planets of the Solar System was called “Fedotov” in his honor.

Siddhartha: Inspired by the short story Siddhartha (1922) by Hermann Hesse, this work by Claude Vivier was commissioned by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation hut could not, for various reasons, be premiered as scheduled in 1976 by the National Youth Orchestra of Canada under the direction of Marius Constant. The Canadian conductor and composer Walter Boudreau, who conducted the first performance in I986, has supplied the following commentary on the work. “Siddhartha probably represents the most revealing musical testament of Claude Vivier‘s thought and, from a formal point of view, it is also his most successfiil work. lt is direct, perfectly sculpted music that begins with a simple melody and broadens marvellously into a fantastic galaxy of ideas and emotions. “It is very sensitive music as well. The composer listens intently to his creative self and communicates his total being to us with disarming simplicity. “Finally, it is self-reflective music that feeds on its own substance in order to expand. Siddhartha is a living organism, a kind of cosmic child haunted by the idea of death and the infinite.“ (Jaco Mijnheer)

Kolektion: Orchestral WorksSubkolektion: Orchester

This is the first release of one of the most praised and denied creative artists of the Bulgarian school of composing. His works have always been subject to controversy, most often ending with the repudiation of the respective opus. Still, with his very first compositions he established himself as an innovator, vanguard author, relentless to the commonplace and the conventional in constant search of new roads for the Bulgarian musical output. The album has the character of a retrospection tracing down the development of a talent. The combination of Iliev's Concerto Grosso (1949-50) - one of his earliest works in the traditions of post-neoclassicism, with his Fragments (1968) and his last Sixth Symphony (1984-85), gives an idea of the author's enormous creative and intellectual potential. Iliev himself conducts his Fragments, dedicated to the Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra directed by him with love and inspiration. The other conductors featured in this CD, Vassil Kazandjiev and Yordan Dafov, are two of the composer's closest friends and colleagues.

Performed by: A, Dikov (piano), D. Paliev (kettle-drums), D. Boboshevski (xylophone), I. Lazarov (drums)
