MAXIMILIAN STEINBERG: Passion Week; RIMSKY-KORSAKOV: Alleluia; Behold, the Bridegroom comes; Your bridal chamber; Do not weep for Me, Mother; Let all mortal flesh – Cappella Romana/ Alexander Lingas – Cappella Romana
Cappella Romana is at it again, swinging—successfully—for the fence.
Exciting performances in terrific sonics on Nos. 1 & 3, 2 not quite as good performance-wise.
MENDELSSOHN: Ein Sommernachtstraum – Soloists/ Wiener Singverein/ Tonkunstler Orch./ Kristjan Jarvi – Preiser
Great playing, great performance, but the narration will spoil it for many.
BIZET: Symphony in C Major; Jeux d’enfants, Op. 22; Roma–Suite for Orchestra, No. 3 -Orchestre de Paris/Paavo Jarvi – Virgin Classics
The three works Jarvi performs constitute Bizet’s repute as a composer of orchestral works.
JOHAN HALVORSEN Orchestral Works: Suite ancienne; 3 Norwegian Dances; Air norvegien; Chant de la Veslemoy; Symphony No. 2 “Fatum” in d minor – Marianne Thorsen, vioilin/ Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra/ Neeme Järvi – Chandos
These works will appeal to anyone partial to the music of Grieg and Svensen.
