Luigi Cherubini composed only one symphony, as opposed to numerous operas, masses, motets, and cantatas, and it should come as no surprise to find that the Symphony in D major (1815) is unusual in other ways. Commentators have likened this singular work to symphonies by Mozart, Schubert, and Mendelssohn, yet aside from sharing a common musical language, it has little of their formal discipline and its style seems outside the mainstream of Germanic symphonic writing. In its loose structure, with many dramatic pauses, digressions, and interruptions, and with long-breathed themes that resemble arias, Cherubini's music actually seems much closer to that of Rossini. The operatic impulse is quite apparent in the antic outer movements, the songful Larghetto, and the stormy Menuetto, and this symphony must have struck early audiences as peculiar in its theatricality and something of a novelty. (Presumably, had it been a success, Cherubini would have composed many more symphonies than he did.) This 2007 recording by Piero Bellugi and the Orchestra Sinfonica di Sanremo presents the symphony in a solid reading, along with three overtures from Cherubini's operas Médée (1797), Faniska (1806), and Lodoïska (1791), and their bold operatic characteristics provide a helpful context for the featured work and balance the album rather nicely. Naxos' sound is quite clear and detailed, but somewhat lacking in presence and resonance.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.
