Stravinsky & Stokowski: Rite of Spring/Bach Transcriptions
In his Deutsche Grammophon orchestra recording debut, Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads The Philadelphia Orchestra in a tribute to the ensemble’s storied past while looking toward a bright future. Recorded at the Kimmel Center, the album features Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, which Stokowski and the Orchestra premiered in the US in 1922, and Stokowski’s transcriptions of works by Bach and Stravinsky.
Mahler: Symphony No. 5
Mahler’s Fifth Symphony is a pivotal work both with respect to the composer’s life and career. As with Beethoven’s path-breaking “Eroica” Symphony, this piece seems to strike out in new directions and initiates a “middle” period and new musical concerns. As with Beethoven’s personal crisis around 1802, when he first began to come to terms with his hearing loss, Mahler, too, experienced both trauma and a new state of personal affairs around the time he wrote the Fifth Symphony.
Berlioz: Romeo & Juliet
The newest addition to our online catalog is a recording of Berlioz's Romeo and Juliet led by Chief Conductor Charles Dutoit and featuring mezzo-soprano Ruxandra Donose, tenor Gregory Kunde, baritone David Wilson-Johnson, and the Philadelphia Singers Chorale.
Prokofiev: Symphony No. 4 in C Major, Op. 112
The Orchestra is led by one of its preferred guest conductors, the rising international star Vladimir Jurowski, in his debut recording of the piece. It is Jurowski’s first released recording with this orchestra -- a notable occasion for Philadelphia Orchestra followers.
For fans as well as casual listeners, this will surely be a must-have. Apart from the inspired interpretation and immaculate sound of the ensemble, it is documentation of the unfolding of a synergistic connection between conductor and ensemble.
