This is Volume Six of the Rihm Edition, another excellent entry in Hanssler's composer-curated series of recordings by the orchestras of the SWR (Southwest German Radio). This time around we find Sylvain Cambreling leading his SWR Sinfonieorchester Baden-Baden und Freiburg in two concertos. "Uber die Linie II: Musik fur Klarinette und Orchester" (1999 – 37'07) was written for Jorg Widmann, composer, clarinettist, and Rihm protege….

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 ……

He does not always regard a finished work the last word on a subject—for example the orchestral work Ins Offene… (1990) was completely rewritten in 1992, and then used as the basis for his piano concerto Sphere (1994), before the piano part of Sphere was recast for the solo piano work Nachstudie (also 1994)…

Wolfgang Rihm - Dis-Kontur, Sub-Kontur, Unbenannt IV  Music

The hammer strokes at the beginning of his Dis-Kontur (1974) bear only a fleeting resemblance to those in Gustav Mahler’s Sixth Symphony. But Rihm’s are of an entirely different cut altogether: after all, what we hear is not a “final rage”, but a violent outburst standing at the beginning of a long musical development. “I believe that it is important today to compose music that is totally lost to the world and only knows itself,” said Rihm about Dis-Kontur in 1975. “Only such music will be able to heal the art of composing where it was bruised by buzzwords.” It was already in his next composition, Sub-Kontur (1974/75), that Rihm took yet another step in the same direction. But while he did not level the hammer strokes of Dis-Kontur, Rihm did not allow his listener to meet them head-on either. Instead, he chose subtler means to express them. “Both pieces are big chunks chewing up symphonic topoi. In a way, Dis-Kontur is a symphonic march. Sub-Kontur is a kind of adagio that pushes upward from below, or so I thought back then.” In his Unbenannt IV (2002/03), a concerto for organ and orchestra of sorts, Rihm wanders about in search of the sonically and spatially varied relationships between the solo instrument and the orchestra groups. What he is looking for here is the “organic whole” (Rihm) constituted by orchestra and organ. A particularly gripping release in the series Musica Viva! – from col legno web site

Majestic and profoundly moving, Mahler’s 2nd Symphony (‘Resurrection’) constitutes one of the towering monuments of late-19th-century symphonic music and one of the composer’s most popular works. It was therefore logical that Jean-Claude Casadesus, a living legend of the conductor’s art, chose this work, which has accompanied him for many years, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of his Orchestre National de Lille.

Label: Naxos | Tracks: 08 | Rls.date: 2017

Each of the three symphonies on this recording represents a significant milestone in Havergal Brians long musical journey, and each demonstrates the breadth of his symphonic approach. No. 8 was the first of Brians symphonies to be performed and is one of his most gripping and unpredictable, full of sonic invention. Behind the more apparently genial and expansive No. 21 lies profound emotional complexity, while No. 26 embodies elements of a divertimento though it retains disquieting outbursts. Gramophone wrote of the previous Brian recording by these forces (8.573408): The New Russia State Symphony Orchestra do the music proud. This release completes the commercial recording of all 32 of Brians symphonies on Naxos and Marco Polo.
