Respighi’s colourful music could have been written with the clear, full-bodied Chandos sound in mind. Following on from where Geoffrey Simon began for the label in the Eighties, Edward Downes is now exploring the more symphonic side of Respighi’s output, showing there is more to him than the Roman trilogy (if not that much, qualitatively). The present disc includes two of his four concertante works for piano and orchestra, the extended Toccata (according to Tozer’s booklet note, the longest such work in existence) and the quirky Slavonic Rhapsody, with its humorous sideswipe at Dvorák. More characteristic of Respighi is the concert overture derived from his opera Belfagor, about the exploits of a Till Eulenspiegel/Don Juan figure, portrayed with suitably colourful sound-painting. All these, together with the Bachian Three Chorales, are played with marvellous verve and commitment – the BBC PO under Downes has a way with this out-of-the-way repertoire that few can equal. The sound quality on this disc is nothing short of stunning.

Exclusive artist at Deutsche Grammophon, Julie Fuchs follows in the footsteps of her illustrious predecessors and invests songs and iconic tunes from the jewels of the stage and cinema of the roaring twenties. The texts in the spotlight develop themes widely discussed after 1918 pacifism, feminism and liberation of morals, birth that find a new resonance after the war in Poulenc's opera-bouffe, whose modernity and irrepressible fantasy plunge their roots in the vibrant interwar years when Paris was still the capital of the world.

Prima opera scritta da Beckett in francese, Mercier e Camier è senz'altro il suo romanzo più divertente. È la storia di due amici che decidono di lasciare la loro città (una mai nominata ma riconoscibile Dublino). Il progetto del viaggio viene frustrato da continui intoppi, contrattempi, incontri con personaggi strani e inquietanti, perfino un omicidio, e i due, alla fine, decideranno di fare ritorno alle rispettive case senza essere andati da nessuna parte, se non al bordello cittadino. Ancora a metà fra il romanzo e il teatro, Mercier e Camier è il punto di svolta nella scrittura di Beckett che, di lì innanzi, da un lato procederà al trittico Molloy, Malone muore, L'innominabile, dall'altro darà vita ad Aspettando Godot..

Wer Samuel Harfst bereits live erlebt hat weiß, dass er in keine Schublade passt. Ein Straßenmusiker der es ins Vorprogramm von Whitney Houston schaffte. Ein belesener Schreiber der nichts mit Noten anfangen kann. Ein kritisch denkender Künstler auf der Suche nach dem göttlichen Funken. Was erst einmal nach “Entweder oder” klingt ist bei Samuel Harfst ein “Sowohl als auch”. Samuels Art zu Glauben schließt die Zweifel nicht aus. Viel mehr überwindet der Glaube die Zweifel wie ein Fliegender die Schwerkraft.

Genre: Classical, Sacred | Label: Ricercar | Catalog: RIC301

Samuel Scheidt was one of the most interesting Lutheran composers of the early 17th century. Like his famous contemporary Heinrich Schütz, he combined the polyphonic tradition with the new styles from Italy. His Cantiones Sacrae for eight voices mark the summit of Renaissance musical style; even though Protestant chorales are integrated into the work, Scheidt does not hesitate to use expressive effects that originated in the Italian madrigal style.

"I heard the shot strike the sides of our ship; the whole scene grew indescribably confused and horrible; it was like some awfully tremendous thunder-storm, whose deafening roar is attended by incessant streaks of lightning, carrying death in every flash and strewing the ground with the victims of its wrath: only, in our case, the scene was rendered more horrible than that, by the presence of torrents of blood which dyed our decks."
