Variations & Fugue on a Theme of Purcell

BBC Symphony Orchestra / Gennadi Rozhdestvensky

Gennadi Rozhdestvensky (b.1931) is the last living survivor of a great Russian quartet of conductors consisting of Mravinsky, Kondrashin and Svetlanov. He was the highly distinguished principal conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra from 1978 to 1981, an exciting period in the orchestra's history faithfully captured here.

During this period, he conducted many British composers, a favourite being Britten (the Russian premiere of A Midsummer Night's Dream), Vaughan Williams (a complete cycle on Melodiya), Walton, Elgar, Maxwell Davies (the premiere of Symphony No.2) and John Tavener.

These recordings of Holst's Planets and Britten's Variations & Fugue on a Theme of Purcell have never been issued before on CD. The Planets is new to Rozhdestvensky's extensive discography. Rozhdestvensky's 1980 Royal Festival Hall performance is a freshly conceived interpretation of The Planets which is both exciting and superbly played, and the stereo recording has a spectacular dynamic range.

The performance of Britten's Variations & Fugue on a Theme of Purcell was given on a Far East tour in Osaka, Japan in 1981. Osaka's Royal Festival Hall has a wonderful natural acoustic which invests each instrument with great clarity and warmth.

Rozhdestvensky's Tchaikovsky 4 on ICA Classics (ICAC5035) received the following review: 'The opening of Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony is immediately arresting as the brass pummels out a fateful summons. The strings respond in soulful terms, and when the music becomes animated we are thrown into the midst of emotional turmoil, Gennadi Rozhdestvensky the alchemist of an inspired performance that graced the Leeds Festival in 1979. Tchaikovsky's great score, its accents hammered out, its balletic motions subtly turned, is here given a fervent on-the-wing account that compels attention.' (
