Roy Webb (1888-1982) was never remotely as well established as a composer as his mentor Max Steiner, but he composed his share of good music in the course of scoring 300 movies in a career lasting more than 30 years. This collection is devoted entirely to Webb's music for the movies of Val Lewton, the producer responsible for Cat People, I Walked With a Zombie, The Seventh Victim, The Body Snatcher, and Bedlam, among other notable low-budget suspense and horror movies of the early 1940s. Each of those scores is represented here, and it's a most interesting mix; no two sound alike, and each is more complex musically than meets the ear. Bedlam's music is the most traditional Hollywood music, deliberately evoking the 18th century setting of the film. Cat People and The Seventh Victim represent distinctly non-traditional suspense scores, built around memorable core motifs, dealing with their central characters' struggle with the forces of evil within and without; as it happens, Webb was at a disadvantage on The Seventh Victim in that the film's most effective musical moment was the party scene in which Johannes Brahms' "Waltz in A minor" was used to stunning effect over a telling piece of dialogue. His music for The Body Snatcher and I Walked With a Zombie are similar in that both utilize traditional folk sources as their bases: Scottish music in the case of The Body Snatcher and Haitian music in I Walked With a Zombie. The best parts of each score are represented, and they make more engaging listening than the other material, being less psychologically oriented and more extroverted, though "I Walked with a Zombie" would likely have worked better if it had included the sung material from the original film. The performance by the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra under William T. Stromberg is more than competent, and the tempi and timbres of the recording capture the essentials of the original film material, which is complex enough but not always that interesting as music. It's revealing that the annotation gives about as much space to plot summaries and biographical information on Lewton as it does to the music itself. Clearly the concept behind the CD is a marketable one, even if the music itself lacks some of the substance that one is accustomed to hearing in the work of Steiner, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, and others.

Los Grandes Angulares...
Nils Frahm, nuevas vías para el piano

Respetado tanto por los críticos de música clásica como por los aficionados a las sonoridades electrónicas, el talento de Nils Frahm concita unanimidad desde hace una década. Ya se sirva de un órgano de iglesia o de un sintetizador conectado a múltiples pedales de efectos, el pianista alemán mira siempre hacia el futuro y parece adelantarse a todos.

Jorge Bolet & Franz Liszt

Jorge Bolet arrojó una nueva luz sobre la música de Franz Liszt gracias a una visión a la vez poética y lírica, muy alejada del virtuosismo gratuito y chillón oído demasiado a menudo. Al inicio de los años 1980, Jorge Bolet graba para DECCA una antología del compositor húngaro que hará historia, a la que conviene añadir otras grabaciones realizadas para el sello español ENSAYO, RCA en los años 1970, EVEREST en 1960, junto con grabaciones de estudio y de radio en los años 1950, cuando su asombrosa técnica estaba en su apogeo.

Gounod romántico y místico

Artesano mayor de la renovación de la música francesa durante la segunda mitad del siglo XIX junto con su predecesor, Berlioz, al que admiraba, y sus discípulos, Bizet, Saint-Saëns y Massenet que veneraban su fe en el Arte, Charles Gounod (1818-1893), místico y seductor, romántico en pos de un nuevo clasicismo, debe su renombre a unas obras maestras que, sin embargo, reducen su envergadura. Una discografía en pleno auge nos permite descubrir la diversidad de su música: instrumental, vocal, sacra y lírica.
