This eagerly awaited recording from Vasily Petrenko and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra follows their critically acclaimed performance of Elgar's Symphony No.1. BBC Radio 3 raved that Petrenko ''gets Elgar… absolutely understands the beating heart of it.'' More emotionally complex and ambiguous than the first, Elgar's Symphony No.2 seems to sense the apocalyptic events that would be unleashed just three years later.

Daniel Barenboim continues his acclaimed Elgar series with the landmark First Symphony. These new issues mark the first time that indefatigable maestro Barenboim has returned to recording Elgar’s symphonic works since the 1970s.
This recording is the latest step in maestro Barenboim’s Elgarian journey with the Berlin Staatskapelle, following on from well-received performances of Elgar’s Dream of Gerontius, the Cello Concerto (recorded live with Alisa Weilerstein for Decca), and Elgar’s Second Symphony – about which the Guardian wrote: “The surging, unquenchable energy of this account is obvious from the opening bars, which are borne on an irresistible flood of sound from the Berlin Staatskapelle

In the decades since its founding, the Scottish National Orchestra has earned a reputation as a distinguished ensemble with an extensive concert schedule, wide-ranging repertoire, and a significant representation on recordings. The SNO is the direct descendant of the Scottish Orchestra, founded in Glasgow in 1890; with the establishment of the Scottish National Orchestra Society in 1950 with monies from Glasgow, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, and Dundee, the SNO became a permanent ensemble. Throughout its first 40 years, the Scottish Orchestra had no permanent principal conductor, instead relying on a series of eminent guest conductors.

For this release from Zig-Zag Territoires, Heinz Holliger leads the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne in two works of Arnold Schoenberg, the string orchestra version of Verkl?rte Nacht, and the Chamber Symphony No. 2, followed by Anton Webern's Langsamer Satz, also arranged for string orchestra. All three pieces are tonal, predating the development of atonality and the later twelve-tone system, with which these composers are most strongly associated.

Gustav Mahler’s epic Symphony No. 2 ‘Resurrection’ with Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker, the Rundfunkchor Berlin and star soloists Kate Royal and Magdalena Kožená was recorded in concert at Berlin’s Philharmonie in late October 2010. The Symphony, scored for orchestra, soloists and chorus, tackles the great mysteries of life and death and was already among the most successful and popular of Mahler’s symphonies during his lifetime. Not only was the work premiered by the Berliner Philharmoniker (in 1895) but it is an important work in Simon Rattle’s musical trajectory. The partnership of Sir Simon and the BPO in Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 portends a ground-breaking new recording.
