NEW ON NAXOS

The November 2017 edition of NEW ON NAXOS. Our spotlight recording is the third chapter of Richard Wagner’s epic opera cycle Der Ring de Nibelungen – Siegfried – performed by the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Jaap van Zweden. Recorded live in concert, this production features some of today’s best Wagnerian singers including tenor Simon O’Neill in the title role, soprano Heidi Melton as the Valkyrie Brünnhilde, and tenor David Cangelosi as the gnome Mime. This is also the third and final appearance of bass-baritone Matthias Goerne as The Wanderer.

Other highlights include:
• Violinist Tianwa Yang’s newest recording, performing Saint-Saëns’ Works for Violin and Orchestra, with the Malmö Symphony Orchestra and conductor Marc Soustrot. Cellist Gabriel Schwabe, who just released Saint-Saens’ works for cello and orchestra in October, joins Tianwa in the improvisatory La Muse et Le Poète.

• World première recordings of Terry Riley’s concerto The Palmian Chord Ryddle for electric violin and orchestra, and his organ concerto At the Royal Majestic – recorded by the GRAMMY® Award-winning team of Nashville Symphony Orchestra and conductor Giancarlo Guerrero, with soloists Tracy Silverman (electric violin) and Todd Wilson (organ).

• Dmitry Shostakovich’s film score to The Gadfly, recorded for the first time in its entirety by the Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz and conductor Mark Fitz-Gerald.

Image Works for Violin and Orchestra
Tianwa Yang is ‘an artist of exceptional technique and musicianship’ (BBC Music Magazine) and has established herself as a leading international performer and recording artist, winning the Annual Prize of the German Record Critics 2014 for her acclaimed recordings of Sarasate’s complete violin works. Her ‘stunning effortless virtuosity’ and ‘uncanny affinity for Spanish music’ (All Things Strings) make her the ideal advocate for the music presented on this recording. The Introduction et Rondo capriccioso is a glittering showcase imbued with the passion of Iberian dance, while the Havanaise in E major is a languorous habanera. Less frequently heard are the evocative Caprice andalou, the songful Romance in C major, the rhapsodic Morceau de concert, and the improvisatory La Muse et le Poete.

Image Overtures
Jacques Offenbach is best remembered for his operettas, but the dramatic Ouverture à grand orchestre is a rarely heard early piece that presages his future in musical theatre. The enduring popularity of Orpheus in the Underworld is due in no small part to the Can-Can, now one of the most iconic pieces in Western classical music. Another relative rarity is Vert-Vert, a commercial flop in its day but, as with all Offenbach, brimming with melodic invention.
