The musical chameleon Emil Nikolaus von Reznicek is one of the late German Romantic composers, whose multifaceted style makes him difficult to classify. Prior to the inauguration of CPO's grand edition of Reznicek's major works a few years ago, he was known to classical music fans solely as the composer of the Donna Diana Overture. In the meantime things have changed: on our many Reznicek releases listeners can experience for themselves all the Stunts seriously intended ones, mind you performed by this master of metamorphosis.

Orchestral | Label: Melodiya (MELCD100233)

Firma Melodiya presents an album of Maurice Ravel’s symphonic works dedicated to the great French composer’s 135th birthday. “Music, I insist, must in spite of everything be beautiful,” as Ravel declared his artistic credo. When the composer lived, his works were frequently a subject of relentless criticism. He was accused of imitating his contemporaries, compliance with outdated standards and banality. However, Ravel’s music has been loved by millions of listeners for more than half a century now, which lets him take a deserved place in the pantheon of the world’s classical music. Devoting attention to all genres and forms, Ravel had a special predilection to orchestra. Being one of the most important figures of musical impressionism, he was a great master of the instrumental palette. Not he was a stranger to romantically passionate impulses.

Nickolai Rimsky-Korsakov was a master orchestrator who became especially known for his colorful use of woodwinds and brass, perhaps as a result of his conducting the Russian Navy Band in his early days. He put this talent to excellent use in his "Capriccio Espagnol," which is based on Spanish folk tunes, according to the composer. There are five sections: Alborada, Variazioni, Alborada (repeated with changed orchestration in a different key), Scena e canto gitano (gypsy street song), leading into Fandango asturiano. There is a brief concluding reference to the Alborada in the coda. Rimsky-Korsakov was likely inspired to compose this orchestral piece by Tchaikovsky's similar "Capriccio Italien."

This release features his Symphonie no. 2 op. 57, his Trois Morceaux op. 51, and his Symphonie gothique op. 23 performed by the Munchner Rundfunkorchester, conducted by David Reiland.

Around the beginning of the 20th century, Ralph Vaughan Williams, together with his friend Gustav Holst, deliberately began to free his compositional style from ‘German influences’, moving towards a more British musical style and finding inspirational models in English folk music. Most of the works recorded here are lesser-known pieces by the composer, but each clearly reflects Vaughan Williams' uniquely personal style.
