Vaughan Williams: Symphonies Nos. 4 & 6

Antonio Pappano

Symphonien - Erschienen am 23. April 2021 | LSO Live

Hi-Res Booklet
Sir Antonio Pappano leads the London Symphony Orchestra in a pair of symphonies by Ralph Vaughan Williams that span the build-up and aftermath of the Second World War. Throughout the Fourth Symphony Vaughan Williams channels tension and power through the music in amongst moments of light and clarity. It evokes a sense of hardship and persistence, perhaps suggesting the ever-present threat of war in the 1930s. Written in 1947, the composer's Sixth Symphony also seems to reflect the hardships and devastation wrought by World War II. Melancholic in some movements, ferocious in others. © LSO Live

Rachmaninoff: Symphony No. 2

Sir Simon Rattle

Symphonien - Erschienen am 19. März 2021 | LSO Live

Hi-Res Booklet
There are two sides to the music of Sergei Rachmaninoff. There's the lush melodist who took Russian Romanticism well into the middle of the 20th century and compelled attention even as other composers were going in wholly different directions, and, though it's less recognized, there's the technician. The master orchestrator who rivaled Tchaikovsky in sustaining a musical arc over vast periods and in the variety of devices he used to do so. It is too simple to say that "Russian" Rachmaninoff emphasizes the first, and "British" Rachmaninoff the second, but it's accurate enough for Sir Simon Rattle, who has conducted a lot of Rachmaninoff and has already recorded the Symphony No. 2 in E minor, Op. 27 twice, once on video. Those who love Rachmaninoff for the big tunes and heavily nostalgic chains of suspensions might look elsewhere, perhaps to an oldie-but-goodie recording of the work by these same forces, the London Symphony Orchestra, led by Gennady Rozhdestvensky. However, the inner workings of the symphony have rarely been as clearly defined as they are here. Listen to the slow movement, which won't make one cry but which sustains its long line superbly. Feasibly, this is a result of the fact that Rattle conducted the work from memory; more likely, it's just general familiarity and a satisfying feeling of delving deeply into this work that is still hard to pin down, despite its supposed accessibility. The performance was spliced together from two live LSO evenings, and the orchestra's engineering team has captured Rattle's carefully wrought balances and his subtly ominous rumblings of the double basses at the beginning very well. © TiVo

Shostakovich: Symphonies Nos. 9 & 10

Gianandrea Noseda

Symphonien - Erschienen am 5. Februar 2021 | LSO Live

Hi-Res Booklet
Dies sind typische Schostakowitsch-Interpretationen der „zweiten Generation“: Die Werke müssen nicht mehr vorgestellt, es muss nicht mehr um Verständnis für diese Musik geworben werden – mit dem Nebeneffekt, dass der biografische Subtext, der in Schostakowitschs Musik – und insbesondere in den hier präsentierten Sinfonien neun und zehn – stets verborgen ist, nicht noch extra betont wird. Doch auch ein reines „Musizieren nach dem Notentext“ hält durchaus Fallstricke parat, denen Gianandrea Noseda in diesen Einspielungen mit dem London Symphony Orchestra hier größtenteils entgeht. Oft wird beispielsweise der Kopfsatz der Zehnten viel zu breit genommen und aus dem vorgeschriebenen Moderato ein Adagio gemacht – mit dem Ergebnis, dass die Musik auf der Stelle tritt. Nicht so unter Noseda, der ein natürlich fließendes Tempo wählt, mit dem er jedoch die vorherrschende Atmosphäre der Düsternis noch überzeugender einfängt als seine langsameren Kollegen. Auch die langsamen Sätze der Neunten und Zehnten erfahren tiefgründige, emotionale, doch nie sentimentale Deutungen. Zudem können hier die Bläsersolisten der Londoner (Klarinette in der Neunten, Horn in der Zehnten) aufs Schönste ihre Qualitäten unter Beweis stellen. Bei den Live-Aufnahmen wurde zum Glück auf Applaus verzichtet. Wenn es etwas zu kritteln gäbe, dann höchstens die Tatsache, dass das vorherrschende Prinzip der Nüchternheit in gewissen Passagen zu einer gewissen Spannungsarmut geführt hat: Das Stalin-Porträt im zweiten Satz der Zehnten zeigt ebenso wenig die Zähne wie die süffisante Final-Coda der Neunten. Doch die orchestrale und klangliche Qualität lässt über dieses kleine Manko hinweghören. © Schulz, Thomas / www.fonoforum.de

Debussy: La mer, Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune – Ravel: Rapsodie espagnole

François-Xavier Roth

Symphonien - Erschienen am 23. Oktober 2020 | LSO Live

Hi-Res Booklet
Since the appointment of François-Xavier Roth as guest conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra, Debussy and Ravel have been showing up increasingly often on concert programs there, and this is all to the good. This release from the orchestra's LSO Live label collects music from three such concerts, touching on three of the most familiar French Impressionist pieces of all. Yet there's no sense of going through the motions in these performances. There are enough interesting details in Roth's readings to make it difficult to summarize his approach, but in general, he manages the difficult trick of taking quick tempos without skating over Debussy's complex surfaces. Consider the Prélude a l'après-midi d'une Faune, which hardly seems to need another recording to add to the hundreds on the market, but Roth's reading is distinctive. At 9:37, he's a good minute faster than many of his competitors, including the Mark Elder Hallé version (although slower than that of the famously dry Pierre Boulez with the Cleveland Orchestra). The result is a performance that has a good deal of tension even as the faun frolics among the nymphs. La Mer is delicate and remarkably controlled with an uncannily glassy "De l'aube à midi sur la mer," and Ravel's Rhapsodie espagnole is crisply rhythmic while never sinking to mannerism. In all, despite a somewhat unconventional quality, these recordings of French standards are as absorbing as one could wish. © TiVo

Weber: Overture "Euryanthe"

John Eliot Gardiner

Klassik - Erschienen am 24. April 2020 | LSO Live

Hi-Res
While the full opera is now rarely performed, Weber's Overture to Euryanthe has taken on a life of its own in the concert hall and serves as a window onto some of the most exciting moments in the whole work. Gardiner programmed and recorded this piece as part of his Schumann series with the London Symphony Orchestra, and the brooding intensity of Weber's score hints at the music to come from his fellow countryman. © LSO Live

Schumann: Overture, Scherzo & Finale

John Eliot Gardiner

Symphonien - Erschienen am 10. April 2020 | LSO Live

Hi-Res
Sir John Eliot Gardiner and the London Symphony Orchestra bring their survey of Schumann's symphonic works to a close with the Overture, Scherzo & Finale. Dating from 1841, Schumann's Overture, Scherzo & Finale was originally conceived as a symphony, or 'symphonette' as he liked to call it, but having no slow movement he eventually republished it as this three-movement work. The work begins with a graceful and delicate Overture, which quickly transforms into a stormy Scherzo. The lyrical trio section that follows provides a welcome contrast before the fast, fugato style Finale brings the work to a rousing close. © LSO Live

Shostakovich: Symphonies Nos. 5 & 1

Gianandrea Noseda

Symphonien - Erschienen am 3. April 2020 | LSO Live

Hi-Res Booklet
Gianandrea Noseda and the London Symphony Orchestra continue their Shostakovich cycle with a pairing of the iconic Fifth Symphony alongside the composer's First. Few pieces of classical music have been the subject of so much debate and discussion as the Fifth Symphony of Dmitri Shostakovich. Following the 'justified criticism' of his opera Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk, the Fifth marked a turning point in his career, after which he balanced an even more precarious position as an artist under Stalin’s brutal regime. Completed by the composer at just 18 years old, Shostakovich’s First Symphony propelled him into the international spotlight. Breathtakingly unpredictable, the piece charts a course through soundscapes of blazing passion, melancholy introspection and caustic humour. © LSO Live

Bruckner: Symphony No. 6

London Symphony Orchestra

Symphonien - Erschienen am 25. Oktober 2019 | LSO Live

Hi-Res Booklet
Overshadowed by the beloved Fourth and Seventh symphonies, Anton Bruckner's Symphony No. 6 in A major is underrepresented in the concert hall and on recordings. A presumed lack of recognizable Brucknerian characteristics may be to blame for the symphony's relative neglect, though it may be overlooked simply because there are no biographical or editorial controversies attached to it to make it a cause célèbre. Even so, the Sixth is one of Bruckner's most original and surprising works, as it offers a variety of gorgeous themes, rich harmonies, and dynamic motives that change kaleidoscopically and keep the listener guessing, so its gradual acceptance may have more to do with changing critical attitudes than with what's actually found in the music. Simon Rattle has slowly added Bruckner's symphonies to his long discography, and he has already produced what may be the most enlightening Bruckner recording of the decade with the 2012 release of the Symphony No. 9 in D minor, featuring a restored Finale completed by Nicola Samale, Giuseppe Mazzuca, Benjamin-Gunnar Cohrs, and John Alan Phillips. Turning to Cohrs' 2015 Urtext edition of the Sixth, Rattle makes a strong case, giving it a matter-of-fact reading that lets the music speak for itself without preconceived notions or received traditions, almost as if it's being played for the first time. The London Symphony Orchestra plays with extraordinary clarity and vitality and responds to Rattle's steady direction with alertness and energy. LSO Live's glorious multichannel sound accounts for every note and gives this performance-focused instrumental details and sonic lushness, possibly the best recorded sound this symphony has ever received. © TiVo

Shostakovich: Symphony No. 4

London Symphony Orchestra

Symphonien - Erschienen am 20. September 2019 | LSO Live

Hi-Res Booklet
Shostakovich's Symphony No. 4 in C minor, Op. 43, was composed in 1936, just as the composer was getting in trouble with the Communist Party for the first time. He withdrew the work before its premiere, which probably saved him from even worse trouble. By the composer's own testimony, it was an ambitious work, one that sought to strike out in new directions. In places, there is the acid, satirical tone of the opera Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District (the work that did, in fact, land the composer in hot water), but there's much more: the Symphony No. 4 is a sprawling work that encompasses frenzied energy, triumph, and despair. In the words of conductor Gianandrea Noseda, it is "noble, trivial, vulgar, tender, grotesque." In its scope and sheer length, it is inspired by Mahler, although its use of sonata form it is pure Shostakovich. Noseda and the London Symphony Orchestra embrace the Mahler aspects, leaning into the deepening mood of despair in the finale (did any other composer anticipate so well what was to come?) and taking the fugue in the middle of the first movement at a truly careening, demonic clip where the LSO can't completely keep up. The sprawling outer movements don't completely hold together, but this is perhaps a function of the material, and the essential nature of the work comes through in a consistently exciting recording. © TiVo

Schumann: Symphonies Nos. 2 & 4

London Symphony Orchestra

Symphonien - Erschienen am 20. September 2019 | LSO Live

Hi-Res Booklet
On its face, this 2019 release by John Eliot Gardiner and the London Symphony Orchestra seems fairly straightforward and standard, with an overture at the opening and two symphonies by the great Romantic composer Robert Schumann occupying the rest of the program. Yet listeners may consider that it is far from routine on further investigation. The overture to Genoveva is the only part of Schumann's 1850 opera that is regularly performed nowadays, though it remains relatively obscure when compared to other overtures that serve to open concerts. Heard more frequently, the Symphony No. 2 in C major has had a fairly stable performance history, though like Schumann's other symphonies, it hasn't achieved the status of greatness accorded to the symphonies of Beethoven or Brahms, and remains in the second tier of 19th century symphonies. The Symphony No. 4 in D minor, however, may startle listeners who were expecting the long-established version of 1851. Instead, Gardiner has chosen the original 1841 version, which Clara Schumann described as unfinished sketches, but which Brahms favored over the revised version and revealed it to be complete when he published it in 1891. Chronologically, this was actually Schumann's second symphony, though it was first published after the two intervening symphonies and became the Fourth by default. Schumann's leaner orchestration has not been smoothed over or thickened with the later excessive doublings of woodwinds and strings, and while the form is almost identical to the later version, experienced listeners should note the many differences which are evident in this reading. The live recording by LSO Live captures the orchestra's sound with great clarity and fine details, which certainly makes Schumann's richly scored music easier to follow with pleasure. © TiVo

Hi-Res Booklet
LSO Live celebrates the 90th birthday of one of the conducting world’s greats, Bernard Haitink. Few artists have a deeper understanding of the music of Beethoven than the celebrated Dutch conductor, who is known for his mastery of the great symphonic repertoire. This album focuses on Haitink's interpretations of Beethoven's concerto writing, coupling a new recording of Piano Concerto No 2 by Maria João Pires with a virtuosic performance of the Triple Concerto by Lars Vogt, Gordan Nikolitch and Tim Hugh, which was originally made alongside Haitink's now iconic cycle of the composer's complete symphonies. © LSO Live

John Adams: Roll Over Beethoven

LSO Percussion Ensemble

Klassik - Erschienen am 15. Februar 2019 | LSO Live

Hi-Res
A duo of pianists from the London Symphony Orchestra’s percussion ensemble present the world premiere recording of Roll Over Beethoven by John Adams. Roll Over Beethoven pays homage to the electric vitality of Beethoven’s intensely physical, expressive world, and takes fragments from his Diabelli Variations and the Piano Sonata No. 31 Opus 110 and transforms them in the unique black box of Adams’ own musical language. In only twenty short minutes, Adams manages to generate an absorbing structure that, in his words, ‘takes these tiny musical fractals through a grand tour of a harmonic and rhythmic hall of mirrors. © LSO Live
