Alongside their British Isles Overtures series, the BBC NOW and the conductor Rumon Gamba launch a project to bring often neglected symphonic poems by British composers to wider attention and fame. This first volume presents some of the most individual, yet rarely heard, British tone poems written in the early twentieth century, by composers ranging from the long-established Ralph Vaughan Williams and William Alwyn to Balfour Gardiner and Granville Bantock, giants in their time. Works include Bantock’s atmospheric The Witch of Atlas, based on a poem by Shelley, Frederic Austin’s symphonic rhapsody Spring, Gardiner’s evocation of summer A Berkshire Idyll, recorded here for the first time, and Gurney’s mysterious A Gloucestershire Rhapsody, never performed before 2010.

Any recording of an opera by Benedetto Marcello will, for many, bring to mind his literary satire, IL TEATRO ALLA MODA, subtitled "a safe and easy method of properly composing and producing Italian operas according to modern practice." Within its pages, no one involved in the creation of opera-librettist, composer, singers, impresario-is spared. In one passage, the composer is admonished to "oblige the impresario to provide a great number of violins, oboes, horns, etc., preferring to let him economize on double basses, for these should not be used except in the preliminary tuning."

Piazze, provincia di Siena, 1935. È notte quando la quiete immobile della cittadina toscana viene squarciata da un grido. Di fronte alla folla riversatasi in pochi istanti tra le vie, il corpo inerme di un uomo ucciso da una serie di violente percosse: si tratta di Alberto Rinaldi, solo all'apparenza un comune medico di provincia. In realtà, un luminare della medicina del tempo. Grazie alle sue cure miracolose, infatti, tra i suoi pazienti si annoverano personalità di spicco in Italia e in Europa, fino in America. Malgrado l'attenzione dei giornali e della famiglia della vittima, però, le indagini e il processo si rivelano una farsa, nulla viene chiarito dalla giustizia e tutto scivola nell'oblio. Quattordici anni dopo, nel 1949, il presidente della repubblica Luigi Einaudi vuole conferire la nomina di senatore a vita al grande compositore e direttore d'orchestra Arturo Toscanini…

Bright and lively music from the Swedish composer Dag Wirén is unveiled here in surround-sound by the Iceland Symphony Orchestra and Rumon Gamba, only a few years after the completion of their Grammy-nominated and highly acclaimed series devoted to the neglected orchestral treasures of Vincent d’Indy. In this unique recording Gamba uses the large body of a full symphonic string section, rather than the somewhat smaller-scale chamber orchestra setup that has tended to be used for this music in the past. The effect is a more complete expression of the wit and strength of these works. Designed to ‘entertain and amuse’, as the composer put it in a note, the widely popular Serenade for Strings is here given an even more brilliant and powerful touch. Other, lesser-known works on the album similarly showcase a composer of fascinating range, who could write light and humorous pieces such as the Sinfonietta and the lively Symphony No. 3, as well as powerful, rhythmical, and serious works, of which the later Divertimento is an example.

A pochi giorni dal suo compleanno, un evento spazza via tutte le certezze del giovane Diego: tornando dal turno serale nel ristorante in cui lavora, trova il padre riverso sul tavolo della cena. Quel padre violento e sanguigno, a cui Diego è legato da un amore viscerale, lo ha lasciato solo nella casa con vista sull'autostrada, in un quartiere popolare di Messina. L'unico rifugio sicuro è la passione per la lettura e la cucina, in cui Diego rivela ben presto un talento straordinario. Ma ad attenderlo c'è un'altra sorpresa: al funerale del padre si presenta Giovanni, un giovane sfrontato e prepotente che gli sbatte in faccia una verità molto difficile da digerire, riportando a galla vecchi rancori e gelosie. Soprattutto quando si insinua nel letto di Ester, la migliore amica di Diego, da sempre sua complice e confidente…

Wilhelm Friedemann Bach was the first son of Johann Sebastian Bach and Maria Barbara Bach. He was taught by his father and soon he became proficient on several instruments. Although he was an organist for 20 years in Halle, he was one of the first musicians who strived for an independent life, trying to earn his living as a composer, performer and teacher. He struggled all his life, not helped by his difficult character, and he died in poverty in Berlin, totally forgotten.

Johann Joseph Fux (1660-1741) overcame his humble origins as son of peasant farmers brilliantly, eventually holding the prestigious post of Kapellmeister at the Hapsburg Court in Vienna for over 30 years, serving 3 Emperors in a row, all of whom were in the possession of a passion for music.
