Label: Decca - Date: 1980

Edward Elgar's Cello Concerto in E minor, Op. 85, his last notable work, is a cornerstone of the solo cello repertoire. Elgar composed it in the aftermath of the First World War, by which time his music had gone out of fashion with the concert-going public.
The Violin Concerto of William Walton was written in 1938–39 and reorchestrated in 1943. The concerto, about a half-hour in length, is scored for violin solo and standard orchestra (the revision pared down the percussion section from the original).

Ida Haendel’s sinewy and athletic reading of the often under-rated Britten combines toughness with a cumulative dramatic impetus which is hard to resist. Berglund and the Bournemouth players respond with a terse and argumentative vigour, suitably balanced between resignation and defiant rhetoric, especially in the closing Passacaglia. The Walton Concerto, also dating from 1938-9, is played with an apposite blend of inscrutable panache, as in the irrepressibly brilliant central movement, and elsewhere, a sensuous, if occasionally over-indulgent languor. Rare lapses in the finale can be safely overlooked, in a performance of eloquence and undisputed stature.

In this third volume of Edward Gardners Walton series with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, James Ehnes leaves his violin to tackle the taxing soloist role in the Viola Concerto. In a recent Strad interview, Ehnes confesses: This is a piece I have loved since I was a teenager, so it is wonderful that the opportunity has come my way to record it… With Waltons Viola Concerto, none of the writing is impossible but a lot of it is close.

New chamber compositions by Telemann are now made available through intensive research. They are presented in modern score editions focusing on the Magdeburg Sunday Concerts (Sonntagsmusiken). The arias include pieces taken from complete sacred compositions and performed in Hamburgs principal places of worship during the church year 1726-27. The Eisenach court secretary Johann Friedrich Helbig was the author of the texts for the church compositions and the arias included in them.

For a single-package introduction to the music of William Walton, it would be hard to do better than this two-disc set from EMI. Not only is the selection impeccable (including the First Symphony, Belshazzar's Feast, the violin and viola concertos, plus the Partita, for orchestra), but the performances, with the composer conducting, are, for all intents and purposes, definitive.

'….We tackled the challenge of performing and recording without a conductor. Of course, when I otherwise perform this concerto with a conductor, I intensely learn and think through the orchestra part in my head. It is a challenge I am aware of, and I thus probably would never have had dared to perform this concerto without a conductor. But since I’ve often performed the Beethoven Concerto with the Camerata Bern without a conductor, I started thinking that the Brahms Concerto just might work as well.

This is one of the mere handful of great recordings of the Sibelius violin concerto. Not that there aren't many contestants in the field; in fact, it seems that almost every modern violin virtuoso wants to record the Sibelius, and perhaps this isn't surprising, since it's one of the Big Five (along with the Beethoven, Brahms, Mendelssohn, and Tchaikovsky) major violin concertos.

After two first recordings released by Zig-Zag Territoires and devoted to Ravel, Mussorgsky and Rimsky-Korsakov, Emmanuel Krivine and the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra devote this CD to two emblematic works from the end of Bartók’s life: the Violin Concerto No.2, first performed in 1939, and the Concerto for Orchestra, premiered in 1944. These are absolutely major works both in Bartók’s catalogue and from this period in the history of music, and are, moreover, close to the universe of Emmanuel Krivine. For the Violin Concerto, it is Tedi Papavrami who was invited by both the Orchestra and by Zig-Zag Territoires. Let us recall the astonishing recording that Tedi Papavrami recently made of Eugène Ysaÿe’s complete violin sonatas for this label.

Britain-to-Scotland transplant Sally Beamish wasn't just self-taught as an orchestral composer: you might say she learned by doing. According to her notes on this BIS release, one of a group covering her orchestral output, she had never written an orchestral piece or even studied orchestration when the city of Reykjavik, Iceland, commissioned her Symphony No. 1 in 1994. The result was a work full of unusual sonorities, rather loosely woven but constantly surprising, that drew on various features (formal and textural, not tonal) of the music of Scotland.
