  • SPOHR

    SYMPHONIES NOS. 1 & 5

    $11.69 ($12.99)
    Virtuoso violinist, conductor and composer, Louis Spohr wrote ten completed symphonies. The first five demonstrate a remarkable creative growth inaugurated by Symphony No. 1 of 1811 which took the music of Spohr’s idol, Mozart, as a model. Whilst retaining individuality, classical precedents infuse it with festive vitality. “Truly beautiful and masterly” was Robert Schumann’s judgement of Symphony No. 5 in C minor, a work both expansively melodic and quintessentially Romantic – and possibly Spohr’s greatest symphonic statement.
  • SCHUBERT

    3 VIOLIN SONATAS, OP. 137

    $11.69 ($12.99)
    Schubert composed his three sublimely alluring Sonatas for Violin and Piano in the spring of 1816, though they had to wait until 1836 for posthumous publication by Diabelli, who re-named them ‘sonatinas’. With their sometimes subordinate role for the violin and deceptively uncomplicated style, these pieces sidestep the influence of Beethoven and return more to the world of Mozart’s later violin sonatas, particularly with the Sonata D 384. The minor-key works develop Schubert’s gift for drama and vocal melody further, including hints of his famous song Erlkönig from the previous year.
  • COSTA/LOPES-GRACA AND MORE

    PORTUGUESE MUSIC FOR CELLO & ORCHESTRA

    $11.69 ($12.99)
    This recording brings together for the first time some of Portugal’s leading composers in a unique programme dedicated to their works for cello and orchestra. The impressionistic and luxuriant harmonies of Luiz Costa’s Poema contrast with Fernando Lopes-Graca’s somber and austere Concerto da Camera, a commission from Mstislav Rostropovich. Luis de Freitas Brando’s Cena Lirica is an early, romantically expressive piece, while the Concerto by his eminent pupil Joly Braga Santos is a hauntingly poetic symphonic masterpiece.
