  • The Queen of Golconda, extracts

  • Estrella de Soria, extracts

A collection of world première recordings! ‘The Battle of Leipzig’ is the real sensation here – a battle very much in Beethovenian style, but with plenty of typical Berwald features! And some charming and early pieces for violin and orchestra.
 

Suter / Jelmoli
CDS-1052-2
EAN: 7393338105220
Prisgrupp: GA1
 
  • Hermann Suter (1870–1926)
  • Symphony in D minor, Op.17
  • Hans Jelmoli (1877–1936)
  • Three Pieces for Orchestra from the lyrical comedy ‘Sein Vermächtnis’
Framförd av: Moscow Symphony Orchestra - Adriano
Another Swiss romantic! Herman Suter was a pupil and follower of Hans Huber. Mahler was very much the source of inspiration for Suter in his Third Symphony, in which a vivid and colourful scherzo is followed by an intensely lyrical third movement. Charming short pieces by Jelmoli complete the disc.
 

Pierre Maurice
CDS-1053-2
EAN: 7393338105329
Prisgrupp: GA1
 
  • Pierre Maurice (1868–1936)

  • Francesca da Rimini Op.6
  • Daphne Op.2 bis
  • Perséphone Op.38
  • Fugue pour instruments à cordes Op.20
Framförd av: Moscow Symphony Orchestra - Adriano
Sterling breaking new ground! Our first CD fromthe French-speaking part of Switzerland. Of the composers fromthis area, it was not only Honegger whomade amark in Europeanmusic.Maurice’s music is refined, in late romantic and sometimes impressionistic style.Many pieces on the disc give a lasting impression of an extremely gifted and dynamic personality with a full knowledge of orchestral writing. Grieg seems to have been a source of inspiration in ‘Pécheur’ and ‘Francesca’.
 

August Klughardt
CDS-1054-2
EAN: 7393338105428
Prisgrupp: GA1
 
  • August Klughardt (1847–1902)
  • Concert Overture in G major Op.45
  • Konzertstück for oboe and orchestra Op.18
  • Cello Concerto in A minor Op.59
  • Auf der Wanderschaft Op.67
Framförd av: Rolf-Julius Koch, oboe / Horst Beckedorf, cello / NDR Radiophilharmonie - Willy Steiner / Hans Herbert Jöris / WDR Rundfunkorchester Köln - Curt Cremer
From start to finish there is a remarkable quality in Klughardt’smusic. At times still played in concert halls in Germany and on the radio, his music shows remarkable craftsmanship. He is nothing other than a German Dvor`´ák – a true giant. The grand Overture is followed by two smaller concert pieces; the Cello Concerto is influenced in its sensual beauty byMax Bruch. The suite ‘Auf derWanderschaft’ is a perfect example of Romantic orchestral music in its charming depiction of nature. One of Sterling’s top releases and a very moving disc. Let this music be played everywhere! It is worth it.
 

Frederic Cliffe
CDS-1055-2
EAN: 7393338105527
Prisgrupp: GA1
 
  • Frederic Cliffe (1857–1931)
  • Symphony No.1 in C minor
  • Cloud & Sunshine
Framförd av: Malmö Opera Orchestra - Christopher Fifield
First English romantic on the Sterling label. Cliffe, who wrote very few works, was an intensely Bruckner-inspired composer with the same fondness of beautifully crafted theme work. The third movement is truly heaven. Cloud and Sunshine is also a very interesting work – the beginning really sounds as if it could be played by an organ! ‘
 

Hans Huber
CDS-1056-2
EAN: 7393338105626
Prisgrupp: GA1
 
  • Hans Huber (1852–1921)
  • Piano Concerto No.1
  • Piano Concerto No.3
Framförd av: Dan Franklin Smith, piano / Stuttgarter Philharmoniker - Michail Jurowski
The most interesting feature with Huber in younger years is the fact that his themes originally seem rather undistinguished. But he always find something convincing in them! This goes for the First Concerto. And Litolff’s Concerto Symphonique No. 5 is never far away... The Third Concerto is a completely different matter. Here he is absolutely personal, also in his choice of themes! The beginning is arresting in its refinement. A stunning complement to our complete Huber symphony cycle.
 

Émile Jaques-Dalcroze
CDS-1057-2
EAN: 7393338105725
Prisgrupp: GA1
 
  • Émile Jaques-Dalcroze (1865-1950)
  • Suite de Danses (1911)
  • Poème alpestre (1896)
  • Variations sur ‘La Suisse est belle’ (1895)
  • Suite de Ballet (1897)
Framförd av: Moscow Symphony Orchestra - Adriano
For all people interested in body and movement, the name Jaques-Dalcroze is not unfamiliar. He owned a special institute in Geneva and devoted much time and effort to the development of his theories. But he was certainly also a very secure and productive composer. This CD with some very charming pieces, reminiscent of Messager, will serve as a starting point.
 

Hugo Alfvén - Cantatas Vol.2
CDS-1058-2
EAN: 7393338105824
Prisgrupp: GA1
 
  • Hugo Alfvén (1872–1960)
  • Revelation Cantata, Op.31
  • Cantata for the 450th anniversary of Uppsala University, Op.45
Framförd av: Malmö Opera Choir - Arvo Volmer
The Revelation Cantata was a big favourite of the composer. A very emotional piece of music, indeed, while the Uppsala Cantata was more on a festive scale. Great music, nonetheless!
 

Fritz Brun
CDS-1059-2
EAN: 7393338105923
Prisgrupp: GA1
 
  • Fritz Brun (1878–1959)
  • Symphony No.3 in D minor
Framförd av: Moscow Symphony Orchestra - Adriano
At last a CD only devoted to this remarkable and highly original composer. He may have started as a romantic but he became very much more daring after his two first symphonies. Indeed, we encounter highly complex and monumental structures, with references to folklore as well.
 

Xaver Scharwenka
CDS-1060-2
EAN: 7393338106029
Prisgrupp: GA1
 
  • Xaver Scharwenka (1850-1924)
  • Symphony in C minor Op.60
  • Overture
  • Andante religioso
Framförd av: Gävle Symphony Orchestra - Christopher Fifield
A master of melody, Scharwenka developed his skill mostly as a piano composer and virtuoso. But he was also a very typical lateromantic orchestral composer and his symphony proves his excellentsense of pace and melody. The Andante should be a standard work for everybody longing for peace and stillness.
