This is the first orchestral release of the new SWR Symphonieorchester Stuttgart. Not without a reason one has decided to choose a symphony by Shostakovich. This live recording under the baton of the experienced conductor Eliahu Inbal shows the extraordinary level on which this orchestra operates after five years of existence. Shostakovich’s 11th Symphony focuses on the so-called “Petersburg Bloody Sunday”, which – according to the Julian calendar – took place on January 9, 1905. Just like the classical symphony the work has four movements that blend attacca into one another so as to create a continuous narrative flow. There’s no denying that the 11th Symphony is not a symphony in the classic sense but rather a symphonic poem or programme symphony. Shostakovich always needed an overriding subject for his compositions to express the “central idea” of his music. © SWR Classic

With its cover art showing the flags of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia and its sombre title, “Baltikum”, this final record from the prodigious SWR Vokalensemble shows clearly its intentions: a commitment to contemporary baltic choral music. The ninth and final episode of a series that Marcus Creed and his vocal ensemble have dedicated to musical portraits of various countries.Of the seven composers presented here, only Arvo Pärt has broken out onto the international stage. This rich compilation allows one to discover music that is generally rather austere, of great beauty and with a meditative strength and sense of calm that characterises the music of baltic composers. A music which owes a lot to the tenacity of leader and violist Gidon Kremer who has dedicated himself for a long time to the discovery of baltic composers. Audiences from around the world can taste this impressive mix of the old and new, attracting listeners who would never go to concerts.This new album presents original, rather intense arrangements of folkloric songs by Estonian Veljo Tormis alongside the orchestral and atmospheric work of Latvia’s leading female musician, Maija Einfelde. Arvo Pärt's exhilarating cantata Dopo la vittoria forms an arc until it reaches total silence in his final choral work And I heard a Voice. Pēteris Vasks is represented with his moving ballad Litene, which commemorates victims of the fight for the liberation of Lithuania. Emerging from a particularly active musical breeding ground, are three young composers that complete this fascinating offering. © François Hudry/Qobuz
