On sait que le langage baroque est une sorte d’espéranto musical dont les codes se sont répandus sur tout le continent européen, chaque nation venant inspirer, pour ne pas dire contaminer, l’autre. Contrairement au sédentaire Johann Sebastian Bach qui ne voyageait qu’à travers les partitions de ses confrères, son ami le très prolixe Georg Philipp Telemann a voyagé dans toute l’Europe et a retenu dans ses œuvres le style qu’il avait découvert en Pologne.

Felix Mendelssohn’s 5 symphonies demonstrate the composer’s extraordinary melodic gift, but also his adventurous spirit. While the First symphony – composed when he was only 15 years old – still reveals the influences of Viennese Classicism, he realized the sound of national landscapes with ground-breaking orchestral effects and harmonies in his Third (Scottish) and Fourth (Italian). The Second (Lobgesang) and Fifth, on the contrary, were inspired by Mendelssohn’s Christian faith, and the former uses choral forces and vocal soloists, stretching the boundaries of symphonic form even further than Beethoven had dared in his “Choral” Ninth. The 5 symphonies are presented chronologically, performed by the NDR Radiophilharmonie and conductor Andrew Manze, who won a Jahrespreis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik 2017 for their recording of the First and Third symphony.

Franz Schubert created an immense oeuvre during his short life, plagued by money issues, loneliness and a fatal syphilis infection. His music clearly expresses his personal troubles, but equally his love for life, resulting in some of the most lyrical and delightful melodies of Western classical music. Schubert Famous Pieces brings together several of his most beloved works, from the symphonies, late piano sonatas and chamber music to songs such as Erlkonig and Ave Maria. This compilation also contains a string quartet arrangement from the Signum Quartett of his song Der Tod und das Madchen that has never been released before.

After their acclaimed Cavalleria rusticana recording, Marek Janowski and the Dresdner Philharmonie now present Puccini’s Il Tabarro. Puccini composed this piece as the first panel of his Trittico (1918), a novel work combining three one-act operas, and also containing Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi. The explosive story about illicit love and revenge on the banks of the Seine recalls the Verismo of Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana. Beneath the Verismo surface, however, Il Tabarro is a highly modern piece, full of Impressionist harmonies, allusions to Stravinsky and dramatically significant self-borrowings.In this recording, Janowski and the orchestra particularly showcase the symphonic quality of Puccini’s music. They are supported by an outstanding cast of soloists, including Melody Moore as Giorgetta, Brian Jagde as Luigi and Lester Lynch as Michele, as well as the MDR Leipzig Radio Choir.
