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

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

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

It was an excellent idea to bring together the Suite from Rimski-Korsakov's Golden Cockeral with the complete ballet The Firebird by Stravinsky on one single album. We specify "complete ballet" because he often records one of the three suites that were later established for the concert hall rather than for the ballet. The idea is brilliant in that it highlights the heavy influence of Rimsky-Korsakov on the young Stravinsky, whose Firebird logically pursues the magical orchestral sounds developed by Rimsky-Korsakov. Not to mention that The Golden Cockeral> precedes The Firebird only by one year, 1909 for the first, 1910 for the latter. And suddenly, the old master appears in all his mind-blowing modernity! The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic is here under the precise and sharp direction of Vasily Petrenko, who underlines all the subtleties of both scores. © SM/Qobuz
