Symphonieorchester - Erschienen am 10. Juni 2016 | Lyrita

Auszeichnungen 4 étoiles Classica
The English composer Arthur Butterworth, who lived until 2014, claimed direct inspiration from northern landscapes, Scandinavian as well as British. He often, like Beethoven, developed his musical ideas while tramping through the countryside. The style displayed here in the Symphony No. 1 of 1957, which made Butterworth's reputation when it was premiered by Sir John Barbirolli at the Cheltenham Festival, remained untouched by modernism over the composer's long career. His work has occasionally been recorded, but was a natural for the Lyrita label's series of forgotten works rescued from BBC radio broadcasts; the broadcast of the Symphony No. 1 was conducted by the composer himself. (According to the label it required substantial reconstruction, but it sounds only slightly worse than the other two.) Sample the second movement of this work (CD 2, track 2) to hear the clear influence of Sibelius in Butterworth's music, overlaid with chromatic harmony and a love of writing for brasses that was apparent early in Butterworth's life. The outer movements are tumultuous and dramatic, and they remain crowd-pleasers. The BBC Northern Symphony and BBC Scottish Symphony stay on top of difficult scores and provide testimony to the generally high level of British orchestral playing during this period.

Auszeichnungen 4 étoiles Classica
The Lyrita label's series of albums based on BBC radio broadcasts of the 1970s revive not only a good deal of unknown music, but also some attitudes of a bygone day. From the notes here you learn, for example, that the opening chords of William Wordsworth's Symphony No. 1 in F minor, Op. 23, were greeted with listener complaints because of their dissonance, when in fact they're not really dissonant at all, but merely chromatic and fully anchored in the home tonality of F minor. Be this as it may, the F minor symphony is worth a fresh hearing. Wordsworth, apparently a distant relation of the poet, was a Scottish composer who studied with the great Beethoven scholar Donald Francis Tovey, and you can hear that in this concise symphony that sounds a bit like the later Havergal Brian in its superimposition of an extremely terse motivic language onto a late Romantic tonal vocabulary. Sample the opening movement (track 2) above all. Wordsworth called the symphony, just shy of 34 minutes long in total, "long-winded," which gives you an idea of what he was aiming for, and the work also reflects its wartime surroundings as it takes on layers of grim grotesquerie as it proceeds; sample the bitter finale for what may well be Wordsworth at his best. It's quite a powerful little symphony that any orchestra might profitably program, and it receives a crisp reading here from the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra under James Loughran. The more relaxed Symphony No. 5 in A minor, Op. 68, composed in 1960s, makes less of an impact, but is beautifully orchestrated. The 1968 Overture "Conflict" for orchestra, Op. 86, was said by the composer to have been abstract, not a reaction to the contemporary Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia; it too is less likely to stick with you than the Symphony No. 1 in F minor. The albums in this Lyrita series were taped off the radio by a BBC listener using high-end equipment, but they're still recordings made off the radio. Recommended for listeners interested in the large corpus of forgotten British music of the middle 20th century. © TiVo
