The Haydn series continues with the Paris Symphony No. 87. Julien Chauvin and his orchestra keep shaking us up with historical instruments listening to Haydn’s works and several other forgotten scores from the same period. All of them were commissioned for the Concert de la Loge Olympique - ancestor and model for Julien Chauvin and his musicians – and all of them sank into oblivion during the 19th century, except for Haydn’s symphonies. The record offers an opportunity to experience some rare works of Grétry, Lemoyne and Ragué, and to revive the success that they once knew. © Aparté

This is the eagerly anticipated second volume of Rumon Gamba’s fascinating survey of lesser-known British musical gems. Two works (Cowen’s Rêverie and Hadley’s Kinder Scout) are world premiere recordings, and the entire repertoire is very rarely heard. Dating from 1903 to 1932, these works show the remarkable variety of compositional styles in Britain during that period. Owing to its strong rhythmic elements, Mêlée fantasque pre-echoes Bliss’s later ballet scores. Vaughan Williams’s Harnham Down, inspired by the Wiltshire countryside, is one of many works reflecting the British landscape (along with Goossens’s By the Tarn, Foulds’s April-England, and Hadley’s Kinder Scout). Not every composer’s inspiration was local or nationalistic though: Dorothy Howell’s Lamia, based on the eponymous poem by Keats, retelling Greek myth, caused such a sensation at its premiere at the Proms that it was repeated three days later! Eric Fogg’s Merok is based on a Norwegian folk tune, and named after a village at the head of the Geiranger Fjord. © Chandos

To mark the 60th birthday of British composer Jonathan Dove, Orchid Classics presents an album devoted to his extraordinary orchestral music, performed by the BBC Philharmonic. Under the direction of Timothy Redmond, the BBC Philharmonic performs works which span nearly two decades, from The Ringing Isle of 1997, to Gaia Theory, premiered at the BBC Proms in 2014. The Ringing Isle was inspired by Handel’s observation about the bells he heard upon arriving in England; Dove uses bell-ringing patterns and allusions to Gaunt’s famous ‘scepter'd isle’ speech from Shakespeare’s Richard II. Other highlights include Run to the Edge, a thrilling, vibrant work bursting with energy and colour; Airport Scenes, extracted from Dove’s comic opera, Flight; and Hojoki, a setting of a Japanese text which, appropriately, reflects on the significance of reaching the age of 60, and is sung here by countertenor Lawrence Zazzo, who gave the work’s premiere. © Orchid Classics

Here is a refreshing recording, offering a selection of a dozen of Offenbach’s overtures, carefully omitting some of his most famous pieces to give the listener a pleasant feeling of discovery with regard to an otherwise well-known and recorded composer. Who could pretend to know Les Bavards, Les Bergers, Monsieur et Madame Denis or Le Roi Carotte. Titles that invariably highlight the prolixity of the bourgeois entertainer that was Jacques Offenbach.Composed once the artist had finished the overall work, all these pieces can be assimilated to “potpourri overtures”. They borrow and combine the themes later developed by the singers, which serve as a refrain for the listener. Very few composers escaped the rule, with the notable exceptions of Mozart whose overtures are most often pieces in their own right, and Beethoven who, after composing three overtures for his only opera piece, wrote the one for Fidelio, which didn’t prefigure any of the themes to come.After the social satire characterised by a series of works incorporating the current context and jeering at politics and morals, Offenbach had to shift his focus following the fall of the Second French Empire, and opted to write fantasies and comic operas, up until his latest masterpieces. This album offers a panorama of Offenbach’s many styles, juxtaposing plagiarism, parody, the spirit of dance, and an innate sense of melody. © François Hudry/Qobuz

In September 2018, the first volume of Franz Schubert’s complete symphonies was released under the bright, precise and joyful lead of Jan Willem de Vriend (featuring Symphony No. 2 and Symphony No. 4). This second volume mostly fulfils expectations, with a few unforeseen nuances. It’s worth mentioning that the Symphony No. 1 in D major written by sixteen-year-old Schubert is touching, in more ways than one. First of all because it is constructed with brazen confidence, and casually – without any attempt at hiding it – covers Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 in G minor, oscillating incessantly between major and minor modes with the subtle mastery of modulation, which the Austrian composer would use throughout his life.As for the Symphony No. 3, also in D major, it is more Haydn − who died only six years before Schubert started working on this piece – who inspired the young composer. While the structure stemmed from his London symphonies, the melodies already bore the marks and melodic contours of the future composer of Die schöne Müllerin. At the other end of the corpus is the Unfinished Symphony, written in a radically different language because in the meantime, classicism had mutated into apprehensive romanticism, with a form of weariness growing around this magnificent music, rich with dizzying melancholy. Dropped by its author, like many others he left unfinished, it yet seems to end in pain and disarray, as a masterful question mark upon our miserable human destiny… © François Hudry/Qobuz

In this fascinating recording the legendary Neeme Järvi explores two lesser-known French ballets by Sauguet and Ibert, complemented by the Ballet Suite from Massenet’s opera Hérodiade. Sauguet studied composition with Canteloube and Koechlin. He wrote in a variety of genres, notably for radio and for film, but his ballet scores – more than twenty of them – were central to his output. Les Forains (‘The Showfolk’) was first performed at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in March 1945. The cast was led by the work’s brilliant young choreographer, Roland Petit, and conducted by André Cluytens. Sauget’s wide-ranging influences, notably the orchestration of Richard Strauss as well as the works of Satie and les Six, give his work a flowing, openly melodic style that is immediately appealing and full of wit and charm. Following the success of Les Forains, and the formal establishment in October 1945 of Les Ballets des Champs-Élysées, Roland Petit and Boris Kochno devised a number of new ballets for the company. One of these was Ibert’s Les Amours de Jupiter, premiered on 9 March 1946 with a cast led by Petit himself as Jupiter. © Chandos

Without question the figurehead of classical Brazilian music will always be Villa-Lobos. But of course, that’s not counting his friend and unfaltering mentor, Alberto Nepomuceno, the man who founded the country’s national music school. With the encouragement of Edvard Grieg, from the 1890s Nepomuceno began to explore traditional popular music in Brazil and tentatively began to incorporate it into his compositions. As time went by, he did so more and more boldly and Villa-Lobos then picked up where he left off, building on the foundations he had laid. None other than Richard Strauss conducted the opening of his O Garatuja (which is featured on this album) at the Rio Opera during his first tour of South America, just a few days before the composer’s untimely death. His Série Brasileira from 1897 paved the way for many of the Brazilian styles that later emerged, such as for Milhaud who took themes directly from music on the streets at the time and incorporated a wide variety of percussion instruments into his music. This is an impeccable orchestral composition and a testament to the excellent teaching Nepomuceno received during his long period in Europe – in Germany he conducted the Berlin Philharmonic playing two of his works, in Austria he had a famous encounter with Mahler, in France he became friends with Debussy, Saint-Saëns and Indy and he also went to Norway, Switzerland and Belgium. Here, his music is performed by a very impressive orchestra based in Belo Horizonte called the Philharmonic Orchestra of Minas Gerais. © SM/Qobuz

The premiere of Mahler’s Third Symphony took place in June 1902 in Krefeld (not far from Düsseldorf), but it was indeed the Gürzenich Orchestra of Cologne which gave that first performance... greeted with acclaim – this was not always the composer’s experience with his masterpieces. Originally conceived as a hymn to Nature, in which the inert chaos of the opening movement is gradually left behind, the work calls for enormous forces (large orchestra, women’s choir, boys’ choir, and contralto soloist) and at each hearing leaves an unforgettable impression on the audience. Such was the case in October 2018, when François-Xavier Roth led the esteemed successors of the work’s first interpreters in this latest Mahler adventure. © harmonia mundi
