John Williams composed The Five Sacred Trees for Judith LeClair, the principal bassoonist of the New York Philharmonic in 1995, to honor the orchestra's 150th anniversary. The first performance was given by LeClair and the New York Philharmonic under Kurt Masur on April 12 of that year. The orchestra consists of three flutes and piccolo, two oboes and English horn, two clarinets and bass clarinet, two bassoons and contrabassoon, four horns, three trumpets, three trombones and tuba, timpani, harp, piano, celesta, and strings. Performance time is approximately 26 minutes. Inspiration for the work also comes from the writings of British poet and novelist Robert Graves.

Over the 90-year history of sound film, there have been a handful of instances where a director and a composer have formed a longtime partnership that resulted in a series of classical scores, creating music that stands the test of time. None, however, have been as long or as fruitful as the 43-year collaboration of Steven Spielberg and John Williams. None have encompassed such a wide range of subject matter or, more significantly, have had such an enormous impact on worldwide popular culture.

Music both old and new, but all of it inspired by the timeless modal harmony of medieval and Mediterranean cultures: this is the subject of John Williams's brilliant guitar disc for Sony, which also features his debut as a composer. The main work is his own "Aeolian Suite" for guitar and chamber orchestra, based on both original and 14th-century tunes (one of which, the "Saltarello," appeared on early-music pioneer David Munrow's disc called Instruments of the Middle Ages). The suite is a lovely piece of writing, deftly composed, and neither tacky nor pretentious. It's paired with an inspired assortment of spiritually related but diverse arrangements and original pieces by Satie, Theodorakis, Domeniconi, and an emotionally intense four-movement work called "Stélé," by Australian composer Phillip Houghton. Naturally, Williams performs each piece expertly, but most important, he makes his instrument sing, and that's just what the music demands. Simply super.

Label: Deutsche Grammophon | Rel: 2003

This is the second Deutsche Grammophon CD on which Jian Wang is the featured soloist; the first was an album of Haydn's Cello Concertos (463180-2). (He's also recorded the Brahms Double Concerto with Gil Shaham and Claudio Abbado – DG 469529-2.) The cellist was born in China in 1968, and studied at the Shanghai Conservatory. Thanks to the impression he made on the visiting Isaac Stern, he later came to the Yale School of Music to study with Aldo Parisot. DG gives the CD the omnibus title "The Baroque Album." Fair enough, but this is Baroque music as it was understood in the middle of the previous century, not as it is understood today. Three of the four works are played not quite as the composer originally imagined them. The Couperin (François, not Louis) is a 1924-vintage arrangement, scored for cello and string quartet, of five pieces from the composer's Concerts royaux.
