Béatrice et Bénédict, Berlioz's last completed work, is based on Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing, but the libretto, by the composer, dispenses with most of the intrigue of the original and reduces the plot to a single premise: Béatrice et Bénédict mask their affection for each other by squabbling, and then finally come to their senses and get married. Although designated an opera, it is closer in effect to an opéra comique because of its very extensive use of spoken dialogue.

Listening to this work so soon after hearing Zauberflote one is amazed anew that Mozart could write two such totally contrasted pieces within months of each other. Here, in the composer's last opera seria, we are in another world, one of formality tempered by the deep emotions engendered by love and jealousy. Instead of birdcatchers and Masonic rights we are dealing with historic figures in a supposedly historic context with down-to-earth feelings. For each Mozart finds precisely the appropriate music.

“This is unquestionably the most vital and authentic account of Idomeneo to date on disc. We have here what was given at the work's first performance in Munich plus, in appendices, what Mozart wanted, or was forced, to cut before that premiere and the alternative versions of certain passages, so that various combinations of the piece can be programmed by the listener. Gardiner's direct, dramatic conducting catches ideally the agony of Idomeneo's terrible predicament – forced to sacrifice his son because of an unwise row. This torment of the soul is also entirely conveyed by Anthony Rolfe Johnson in the title role to which Anne Sofie von Otter's moving Idamante is an apt foil. Sylvia McNair is a diaphanous, pure-voiced Ilia, Hillevi Martinpelto a properly fiery, sharp-edged Elettra.

Ravel’s much-loved Mother Goose Suite vividly portrays familiar fairy tales such as Sleeping Beauty and Hop-o’-my-Thumb, and is heard here in its expanded ballet version with a scene-setting Prélude. 1920s Paris was a hotbed of creative collaboration, and the children’s ballet L’Éventail de Jeanne (Jean’s Fan) brought together composers including members of Les Six to create a joyous mélange of influence and individuality, from Ferroud’s Stravinsky-tinted Marche to Poulenc’s catchy Pastourelle, and from Ravel’s glorious opening Fanfare to Schmitt’s truly grand Carnival Waltz finale. This is the first recording of the complete L’Éventail de Jeanne to be made by a French orchestra.

Brillante e ambizioso erede della casata Rhadamant, Phaethon è stato esiliato dal potente sophotech Aurelian e, per legge, chiunque lo aiuti o gli parli verrà a sua volta ostracizzato. Completamente solo per la prima volta nella sua vita, Phaeton ha un'unica speranza e cioè raggiungere Talaimannar, il luogo ove confluiscono tutti i fuoricasta come lui. Ma qualcuno, infrangendo la legge, gli rivela il vero motivo della sua cacciata dalla società: impedire a ogni costo il lancio della Phoenix Exultant, la straordinaria astronave che lui stesso ha costruito…

The first volume of this series (Naxos 8.550761) mixed the first two sonatas of Field's Op. 1 with the first nine Nocturnes. The Sonata Op. 1 No. 3 in C minor logically appears on this second volume, in a most successful performance. Dedicated to Clementi, the first movement shows distinct tendencies towards 'Sturm und Drang'. Neither movement is fast: the concluding Rondo (marked Allegretto scherzando) is bursting with wit and charm to balance the stress of the first. This piece alone justifies the modest outlay for this disc. The remaining tracks, the next nine Nocturnes in the series, demonstrate Frith's sensitivity. Importantly, he shows a laudable restraint with the sustaining pedal. His sweet cantabile is the result of an acute musical sensitivity, and he never overblows the scale of these miniatures.
