Psalmfest 10. This is the Day 11. Lord, Thou Hast Been Our Refuge 12.

Rocco ARTIST: Natalia Ushakova (soprano) • Susanne Bernhard (mezzo-soprano) • Kyungho Kim • Peter Maly (tenor) • Daniel Capkovic (baritone) • Frantisek Duriac (bass) • Bratislava Boys Choir • Pressburg Singers • Slovak National Theatre Opera Chorus • Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra • Friedrich Haider (conductor) • Ermanno Wolf-Ferrari’s The Jewels of the Madonna was a spectacular success in its day, yet after a triumphant world tour it gathered dust until its 1953 Italian premiere, since when it has received but a handful of performances, culminating in May 2015 with this highly acclaimed revival at the Slovak National Theatre, Bratislava. • Combining Italian lyricism with the dramatic realism of verismo and colourful folk-music, The Jewels brings mystical atmosphere and sublimely detailed musical effects to its highly suspenseful plot, delivering powerful choruses, seductive love songs, saucy serenades and orgiastic dances. HENRY PURCELL THEATRE MUSIC, VOL. 2 8573280 | 747313328079 1 CD | SRP US $12.99 CA $12.99 COMPOSER: Henry Purcell ARTIST: Johane Ansell (soprano) • Jason Nedecky (baritone) • Aradia Ensemble • Kevin Mallon (conductor) TRACK LIST: 01-10. The Married Beau, or the Curious Impertinent, Z. 603 11. The Sparnish Friar, or the Double Discovery, Z. 610 12-15. Sir Anthony Love, or the Rambling Lady, Z. 588 16. Aureng-Zebe, Z. 573 17-27. The Old Bachelor, Z. 607 • Despite his immersion in the composition of sacred music, Purcell retained a lifelong interest in the theatre- an aspect of his ouvre that has been neglected. • Among the authors of the five works on this recording were two of the most celebrated of the age- John Dryden and William Congreve- and for their ‘semi-operas’ Purcell produced incidental music and songs of vitality, wit, and imaginative text-setting that offer an intriguing look at the world of Restoration drama.

    NAXOS NEW RELEASE GUIDE NAXOS NAXOS ARAM KHACHATURIAN SYMPHONY NO. 2 & LERMONTOV SUITE XIA GUAN SYMPHONY NO. 2 “HOPE” 8570436 | 747313043675 1 CD | SRP US $12.99 CA $12.99 8570618 | 747313061877 1 CD | SRP US $12.99 CA $12.99 COMPOSER: Aram Khachaturian COMPOSER: Xia Guan • Besides his ever-popular ballet Spartacus (Suites Nos. 1-3 are on Naxos 8.550801), Khachaturian also wrote other stage music, including a splendid score for Boris Lavrenyov’s play about the great Russian author Mikhail Lermontov. • The composer described his powerful Second Symphony, written during the final years of World War II, as ‘a requiem of wrath, a requiem of protest against war and violence’. • At crucial junctures, three tubular bells toll, giving the symphony its memorable subtitle. ARTIST: Russian Philharmonic Orchestra • Dmitry Yablonsky (conductor) • The music of renowned Chinese composer Xia Guan has been received with acclaim in Moscow, Vienna, Tokyo and New York. • The solemn first movement of Earth Requiem, a commemoration of the devastating 2008 Sichuan earthquake, is heard here in an orchestral version that depicts ‘the suffering people who gaze upwards’. • The epic Symphony No. 2 ‘Hope’ is a reflection upon the co-existence of good and evil in mankind, agony and hope, in music of considerable breadth and increasing warmth. ARTIST: Nuremberg Symphony Orchestra • En Shao (conductor) NAXOS NAXOS ANTHONY BURGESS MR. W.S. - BALLET SUITE FOR ORCHESTRA JOSEPH LANNER VIENNESE DANCES 8573472 | 747313347278 1 CD | SRP US $12.99 CA $12.99 8573552 | 747313355273 1 CD | SRP US $12.99 CA $12.99 COMPOSER: Anthony Burgess COMPOSER: Joseph Lanner • Anthony Burgess, celebrated author of A Clockwork Orange, memorably filmed by Stanley Kubrich, once said, “I wish people would think of me as a musician who writes novels, instead of a novelist who writes music on the side.” • Initially thwarted in his desire for a professional musical career, Burgess returned to composition in the mid- 1970s, writing prolifically in many genres. • Mr. W.S. is an imaginative evocation of the Elizabethan era while Mr. Burgess’s Almanack is a variegated work of ingenuity and charm with a nob towards modernism. ARTIST: Brown University Orchestra • Paul Phillips (conductor) • Joseph Lanner was the inventor of the formal Viennese waltz, elevating it from a peasant dance to a refined art form enjoyed by high society. • While renowned in his day, Lanner seldom left Vienna and failed to acquire the same European fame as his more widely-travelled colleague and rival Johann Strauss I, but his music endures for its rich generic variety and lyrical, poetic style. • These dances range from boisterous and ‘immoral’ gallopades to the spooky Geistermusik of the Hexentanz, and a late masterpiece Die Schonbrunner, given 21 encores at Lanner’s final concert and including melodies quoted by Stravinsky in his ballet Petrushka.

No. 6 in C Major: Maestoso • Pianist Boris Gildburg sees Rachmaninov’s Etudes-tableaux, Op. 39 as cinematic short stories or colourful tone paintings. • In contrast, the unashamedly beautiful Moments musicaux are concentrated explorations of a single idea or mood, from struggle and pain towards light and genuine joy. • In these collections, which contain some of the composer’s most affecting music, Rachmaninov shows himself to be a master of the meticulously crafted short-form genre.

    NAXOS NEW RELEASE GUIDE NAXOS NAXOS CARL CZERNY GRAND CONCERTO IN A MINOR CAMILLO TOGNI COMPLETE PIANO MUSIC, VOL. 3 8573417 | 747313341771 1 CD | SRP US $12.99 CA $12.99 8573430 | 747313343072 1 CD | SRP US $12.99 CA $12.99 COMPOSER: Carl Czerny COMPOSER: Camillo Togni • Carl Czerny, one of Vienna’s most illustrious musicians, was Beethoven’s student and devoted friend. • Renowned today for his piano treatises, he was also a prolific composer in almost every genre, but it is the music for his own instrument that has aroused the most curiosity. • The Grand Concerto in A minor, a work both serene and spirited, is historically important as one of the first romantic concertos ever written. • The lyricism and playful bravura of the Grand Nocturne Brillant is balanced by the delicious Rossini Variations de Concert. ARTIST: Rosemary Tuck (piano) • English Chamber Orchestra • Richard Bonynge (conductor) • A pupil of the legendary pianist Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli and composition student of Alfredo Casella, Camillo Togni became one of Italy’s most progressive and multi-faceted composers in the latter half of the 20th century. • While the Serenate represent an anti-romantic move away from chromaticism towards serialism, the Tre fantasie scherzose, with their glimpses of Liszt, Scriabin and Rachmaninov, recall the nineteenthcentury custom of paraphrases based on well-known themes. ARTIST: Aldo Orvieto • Fausto Bongelli (piano) NAXOS NAXOS BOHUSLAV MARTINU THE WHITE DOVE - SONGS, VOL. 4 TIBOR HARSÁNYI A HUNGARIAN IN PARIS 8573447 | 747313344772 1 CD | SRP US $12.99 CA $12.99 8573556 | 747313355679 1 CD | SRP US $12.99 CA $12.99 COMPOSER: Bohuslav Martinu COMPOSER: Tibor Harsányi • The final volume in this revelatory song series charts a twenty-year period during Bohuslav Martinu’s life. • The early The Three Virgins, H 73 exudes an impressionist atmosphere enhanced by Martinu’s advanced harmonic language whilst the New Slovak Songs, H 126 was the result of a highly successful rapprochement between Czech and Slovak art, reflected in music of beauty and inventiveness. • Nursery Rhymes, H 283bis, though composed in perilous times, is full of wit and joy. • American Record Guide wrote of Volume 3: ‘[Jana Hrochova] has a golden tone and crisp diction, and Koukl plays with warmth and clarity.’ ARTIST: Jana Hrochová (mezzosoprano) • Giorgio Koukl (piano) • A student of Kodaly in Budapest, the pianist, composer and conductor Tibor Harsanyi travelled to France in 1923 where he joined an elite group of expatriate composers, including Martinu, Tansman, and Tcherepnin, known as ‘l’ecole de Paris’. • The music on this recording presents a survey of Harsanyi’s stylistic development, from one of his earliest works, the Sonatina, with its essentially Romantic roots, to his final work, the Viola Sonata, notable for its mixture of sensuousness and earthiness that connects it to the earlier compositions. • The Violin Sonata reflects currents of modernism in Paris, including American jazz, as well as the music of his compatriot Bartok.

She also, however, has masterfully performed twentieth century repertoire, as is shown in this 15-CD box set. • Composers featured on this set include Bartok, Berg, Faure, Prokofiev, Ravel, Schonberg, Shostakovich, and many more. •“We are in the presence of one of the greatest virtuosos of our time. I do not see in her generation any other pianist who possesses an equal mastery of the keyboard, in the service of such a mature mind so rich in imagination.” (Nouvelle Litteraires, 1959) 8501504 | 730099150347 15 CD | SRP US $69.99 CA $69.99 COMPOSER: Béla Bartók • Alan Berg • Pierre Boulez • Leo Brouwer • André Boucourechliev • Niccolò • Castiglioni • Ulvi Cemal Erikn • Gabriel Faure • Gabriel Fauré • Ertugrul Oguz Fırat • Jean Francaix • Wilhelm Kempff • Paul Hindemith • György Ligeti • Nikolai Myaskovsky • _lhan Mimaroglu • Arvo Pärt • Sergei Prokofiev • Maurice Ravel • Ahmen Adnan Saygun • Arnold Schoenberg • Alexander Scriabin • Dmitri Shostakovich • Igor Stravinsky • Micahel Tippett • Anton Webern ARTIST: Idil Biret (piano) 9 NAXOS OF AMERICA | NAXOS OF CANADA | NEW RELEASE GUIDE

Part I: Lamentations 02-04. Part II. The Triumph of Faith 05-08. Part III: The Call to Song 09-13. Part IV: The Garment of Praise 14-18. Part V. The Leave-Taking • Randall Thompson’s choral works retain the affection of American choral singers and conductors alike. • The Requiem is his masterpiece, written in response to the loss of close friends and colleagues. • Using a wide-ranging selection of Biblical verses, it takes the form of a dramatic dialogue between two choirs, a ‘chorus of mourners’ and a ‘chorus of the faithful’, concerning eternal life. • Recorded here for the first time in its complete form, this Requiem is an emotional and dramatically intense journey of conflict and resolution, and entirely unique within American music history and the requiem tradition as a whole.
