Image Symphony No. 7; Lieutenant Kije Suite; March & Sch
Sergey Prokofiev’s final years were clouded by ill-health, and the Seventh Symphony was his last significant work, full of poignant nostalgia and restrained but deeply expressed emotion. The Love for Three Oranges consolidated Prokofiev’s reputation in the West in the 1920s, both this and the satirical tale of Lieutenant Kijé producing two of his most popular suites. This is the final volume of the acclaimed cycle of Prokofiev’s Symphonies with the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra conducted by Marin Alsop.

Image Childhood Manuscripts; Old Grandmother's Tales; 6
Revealing an increasing command of harmony, these childhood manuscripts show why, at the age of thirteen, Prokofiev was the youngest-ever student to be enrolled at the St Petersburg Conservatoire. Old Grandmother’s Tales, written in New York in 1918, is suffused with nostalgia whilst the Six Pieces for Piano, Op. 52 are vivid arrangements of some of his earlier works. The childhood manuscripts appear to have been recorded before on LP but it is unclear which of them has been previously released on CD.

Image Complete Piano Music, Vo. 47: Transcriptions from
Reflecting the life of Christ from the nativity to the Passion and Resurrection, Liszt’s oratorio Christus was premiered in 1873 and enjoyed considerable success. The movements he transcribed for piano are dynamic and virtuosic but also pastoral and meditative, including marches and passages of transfiguring beauty. The transcriptions of movements from the oratorio The Legend of St Elisabeth contains music of stirring power: plainsong, a hymn, a march and a Hungarian folk-song.

Muzio Clementi’s legacy to pianists is recognised as highly significant for his introduction of a new virtuosity and exploration of the possibilities of the then recently invented fortepiano. His three Sonatas, Op. 23 were published in London in 1790, their style reflecting Haydn’s tremendous popularity in the city at that time.

"Marco Antonio Cavazzoni – private harpsichordist to the Duchess of Urbino and Pope Leo X, friend of Titian and Bembo – composed some of the most important milestones in the history of instrumental music. They were published in Venice in 1523, the second edition of Italian keyboard music after that of Andrea Antico [Naxos 8.572983]. This album celebrates the 500th anniversary of the harpsichord on the cover (the world's oldest), which was owned by Leo X and undoubtedly played on by Cavazzoni."

Image Rachmaninov Edition: Complete Solo Piano Music & P
Idil Biret was introduced to Rachmaninov as a composer and performer at an early age in Instanbul by an uncle. She greatly admired his performance style and compositions and felt an immediate affinity to him. It was an encounter with the great Emil Gilels at the home of Nadia Boulanger in 1957 which led to her career in Russia where she often played Rachmaninov’s works. After hearing Biret play for him in Paris, Gilels asked Biret if she would like to perform in the USSR. She gladly said “yes” and soon an invitation came for an eight concert two week tour there in 1960 when she was only nineteen years old. After her first recital in Moscow, Goskonzert extended the tour to one month and added eight more concerts to make a total of sixteen. Biret made many more tours in the Soviet Union afterwards playing around 100 concerts there over the years. This release features Biret performing Rachmaninov’s complete solo piano music, as well as his piano concertos.

Image Chopin Edition: Complete Piano Music (15 CD)
In June 1989 Idil Biret received an offer from the then newly established Naxos label to record Chopin’s complete works for piano solo and for piano and orchestra. Without hesitation she accepted to undertake this monumental task. This was a project that would be the dream and dread of many a pianist and the past decades were full of projects to record Chopin’s complete works which remained unfinished for various reasons. Idil Biret was not known as a Chopin performer. Indeed until she started recording for Naxos she had played few of his works in public. During much of her career she had stayed distant from Chopin. Later, Biret studied with Alfred Cortot, considered by many as the greatest Chopin interpreter of the twentieth century, for two years when he was in his eighties. With him Biret worked on almost the entire Chopin repertory. Cortot’s teachings were in the great tradition of Chopin performance of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Biret remembers vividly “the glorious, magical sounds that came from the piano when Cortot put his hands on it; almost like that of a cello” as she recalled in an interview on BBC Radio. This release is a reissue of Naxos’s original Fryderyk Chopin complete piano music recorded by Idil Biret.

Image The Ambassadors (16 CD)
In the second novel of James’s celebrated late period, American Lambert Strether is sent to Paris on behalf of Mrs Newsome, his fiance, to collect her son, Chad. When Strether finds Chad he discovers an altered man and becomes introduced to a free and unconventional style of life that soon intoxicates him. His views begin to change; the morality of Woollett, his hometown, becomes foreign, and the ‘ambassador’ loses sight of his mission… Part tragedy, part comedy, The Ambassadors is a rewarding portrait about one man’s late awakening. • John Chancer is an award-winning narrator of many audiobooks. His soft American accent lends an authenticity to James’s inter-continental tale. • Following its successful run of unabridged Dickens titles, Naxos AudioBooks turns its attention to Henry James, with further titles planned for 2018. • Unabridged recordings of The Portrait of a Lady, The Aspern Papers, The Turn of the Screw and Washington Square are also available.

Image Women in Love (18 CD)
Considered the most widely read novel of the 20th century, D.H. Lawrence’s fiery fifth book continues the loves and lives of The Rainbow’s Brangwen sisters, Gudrun and Ursula. Gerald Crich, son of a wealthy colliery owner, captures the heart of Gudrun, while Ursula becomes enamored with Rupert Birkin, a school inspector - their complex relationship likely modelled on that between Lawrence, his wife Frieda, and John Middleton Murry and Katherine Mansfield. Things are far from harmonious, and the discord and conflict leads to many heated and elaborate philosophical discussions about modern society and the nature of love, while tragedy looms large. Lawrence held this to be his best book, and F.R. Leavis regarded it to be his most profound and rewarding. • Lawrence is valued by many as a significant representative of modernism in English literature, and a visionary thinker. • Reader Paul Slack was born in Nottinghamshire, Lawrence’s county, and has read Sons and Lovers for Naxos AudioBooks.
