Like every year, the Vienna Musikverein welcomes the musicians of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra to its great hall! German conductor Christian Thielemann will be the man with the baton for the traditional 2019 New Year concert, which will open with Carl Michael Ziehrer’s Schönfeld Marsch op.422. Named as musical director of the imperial court balls in 1907, putting an end to the Strauss dynasty’s tenure in this position, Ziehrer wrote around 600 compositions for orchestra (waltzes, polkas, marches etc.) and 23 operettas, including the Schönfeld Marsch. Named as the head of the Viennese orchestra for the first time, succeeding many renowned conductors (from Daniel Barenboim to Lorin Maazel, Nikolaus Harnoncourt or Gustavo Dudamel), Thielmann is familiar with the Strauss dynasty’s repertoire - he recorded (amongst others) An Alpine Symphony, Op. 64 and Der Rosenkavalier (The Knight of the Rose) in March 2011 with the Wiener Philharmoniker. For this concert, which is broadcast in 92 countries, he leads the most beautiful of repertoires from the Strauss era (Künstlerleben op. 316, Die Tänzerin. Polka française op. 351, Lob der Frauen. Polka Mazur, op. 315…). © Sandra Dubroca/Qobuz

The term "Italian Masterworks" could be confusing; after all, these include overtures, interludes and symphonic and choral excerpts from some of the major works of the transalpine opera scene given to us by Riccardo Muti and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Only two arias find their way into the album, taken from Boito's Mefistofele, performed here by Riccardo Zanellato. All the recordings are from a concert in 2017, so they are not, therefore, recycling older things put together without orchestral sound unity. Muti commits himself to making his recording a kind of great lyrical mass, alternating between the orchestra on its own, the choir and the two arias, beginning with the overture of Nabucco and ending with the almost sacred Salve Regina from Mefistofele - in this case with the Chicago Children's Choir which joins the Orchestra's symphonic chorus. Beautiful choice, beautiful sequence, beautiful assembly. © SM/Qobuz

Hi-Res Booklet Onderscheidingen 5 de Diapason - Exceptional sound
What a curious and charming piece of work the First Symphony by Witold Lutosławski is! Written in 1947, it is still borrowing from Stravinski, Bartók, Prokofiev and clearly Roussel, and yet it display the composer's own personal ideas, and his flawless skill in orchestration. But he had not yet made the dodecaphonic style his own, nor the principle of randomness which would be found later in 1961's Jeux vénitiens (Venetian Games). In his case, randomness refers to musicians or groups of musicians having the freedom to play their different parts when they feel like it, or when the conductor gives them a cue. But for sure, this piece's formal framework is still constrained: every performance will shed a different light on it, but it is still the same work. The album finishes with the Fourth Symphony, the composer's last, written between 1988 and 1991, performed in 1993 with Lutosławski himself conducting before his death a few months later. In this work he makes a clear return to his harmonic and melodic ideas, which at times approach Mahler or Bartók, even though the discourse remains decidedly modern. The contrast between the First Symphony, Jeux vénitiens and the Fourth Symphony could not be more spectacular, and it gives a brilliant picture of the evolution of a musical genius who embraced a wide range of influences, constantly adapting them to his own style. © SM/Qobuz

Hi-Res Booklet Onderscheidingen 5 de Diapason - Gramophone Editor's Choice
With Symphony No.6 in A Minor "Tragic" written in 1904 (the title, for once, is not a publisher's gimmick, but was indeed given by Mahler in the programme for the first performance in Vienna in 1906), Mahler almost returns to the classical symphony format; we find more voices in the score (a technique that he had already used in No. 5) and a four-movement structure (whereas No. 5 was articulated in five movements thrown into three "parts", with the absence of a programme or philosophical content). Admittedly, the orchestra remains huge, with four woodwinds, eight horns, and six trumpets, not to mention an impressive arsenal of percussion instruments including alpine bells, hammer and xylophone, which he never used elsewhere; in this respect, Mahler contributed to putting an end to the late romantic trend of gigantic works for titanic orchestras. It must be said that the last movement, which lasts at least half an hour, is of a truly tragic expression with its indelible darkness. This frightened the critics, who found the work somewhat bloated. It is therefore up to the conductor to make the score as transparent as possible, the contrapuntal lines readable and the orchestral colours perceptible through the orchestral immensity. Equipped with his MusicAeterna, Teorod Currentzis embarks on the adventure. © SM/Qobuz

These early symphonies, conducted by Principal Conductor Vladimir Jurowski, showcase youthful Tchaikovsky at his best. The Second, 'Little Russian', is full of bright, dancing Ukranian folk melodies which build to a joyous final celebration bursting with life. The Third Symphony, nicknamed for its finale in the style of a 'polonaise', takes German and Polish musical styles and transforms them into a truly Russian symphony; one that hints at Tchaikovsky's later balletic works. © LPO Live

Composed against a cataclysmic backdrop of Stalinist oppression and the Second World War, Shostakovich's Eighth Symphony is a deeply affecting poem of suffering. The composer described it as 'an attempt to reflect the terrible tragedy of war', and it contains some of the most terrifying music he ever wrote. Here, Gianandrea Noseda conducts the London Symphony Orchestra with intensity and understanding, allowing the music to tell its own story as it travels from darkness into light, yearning more for peace than for victory. One of the leading conductors of his generation, Gianandrea Noseda holds several high-profile international positions in addition to his role as Principal Guest Conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra, including Music Director of the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington DC. His previous releases on LSO Live include acclaimed interpretations of the Verdi Requiem and Britten War Requiem, and this recording follows the digital release of Shostakovich: Symphony No 5, which will receive a full release in October 2019 coupled with the composer's First Symphony. © harmonia mundi
