Wolfgang Rihm's works often emerge in family groups, with one piece serving as the starting point for a whole hierarchy of others, but the starting point for the five movements of the Nähe Ferne symphony was another composer. Rihm was commissioned by the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra to write pendants to each of Brahms's four symphonies, and after they were performed, he assembled the set into a symphony of his own, adding to the sequence an orchestration ……

Under the direction of its Chief Conductor Alexander Liebreich, the National Symphony Orchestra of Polish Radio (NOSPR) is the leading ensemble in the country and is one of Europe’s major radio orchestras. As cultural ambassadors with a rich tradition, the orchestra has made its mark through performances of Polish composers, as it is impressively seen on this CD that features works by Karol Szymanowski and Witold Lutoslawski. It is the final recording of a three-part cycle of works by these influential Polish composers. The first two CDs were unanimously praised by international reviews.

This release offers a pair of fairly early Delius works; they may not be instantly appealing to those making a start with this idiosyncratic English impressionist, but confirmed fans will love them. The roots of Frederick Delius’ Appalachia lay in his experiences as an orange plantation manager in Florida in the late 1880s, where he heard the singing of African-American laborers and, according to his own testimony, first began to think about becoming a composer. The work is subtitled “Variations on an Old Slave Song with Final Chorus for baritone, chorus, and orchestra,” and everything about it is intriguingly confused. Florida is not part of Appalachia. Nor is the Mississippi River delta, which Delius claimed was the inspiration for the work, but which he apparently never saw.

The great Bohemian-born composer Gustav Mahler once said, "A symphony must be like the world. It must embrace everything." Over the course of its nearly 300-year life, the symphony has indeed embraced almost every trend to be found in Western concert music.

Célèbre pour son sens de la poésie et sa virtuosité hors pairs, le pianiste américain Emanuel Ax interprètera une œuvre majeure de Richard Strauss, Burlesque pour piano et orchestre, une œuvre exigeante écrite par Strauss à tout juste 21 ans. Lorsque Strauss compose son poème symphonique Une vie de héros à la fin du XIXe siècle, il a 34 ans. Il y exprime tout son talent, avec assurance, puissance musicale et une touche de pathos. Aucune autre de ses œuvres ne dévoile autant d’égocentrisme et d’aplomb. Dans le cadre de cet hommage à Richard Strauss, Andrés Orozco-Estrada et le Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra se confrontent à ce monument du répertoire orchestral.
