NEW ON NAXOS

Here is the February issue of NEW ON NAXOS. This month’s spotlight recording is JoAnn Falletta and the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra’s newest recording of Ottorino Respighi’s popular Roman Trilogy – Roman Festivals, Fountains of Rome and Pines of Rome. This new album follows their 2007 release of Respighi’s Church Windows, Brazilian Impressions and Rossiniana, which was a Gramophone Editor’s Choice and nominated for a GRAMMY® Award.

Other highlights include:
• Opera Overtures by German composer Albert Lortzing, performed by the Malmö Opera Orchestra conducted by Jun Märkl.

• The very first release in our new ‘Music of Brazil’ series, featuring the works of Alberto Nepomuceno. Fabio Mechetti conducts the Minas Gerais Philharmonic Orchestra in these performances of Symphony in G minor, Prelude to O Garatuja and Série Brasileira.

• The world premiere recording of Johann Simon Mayr’s I Cherusci, recorded by the Simon Mayr Chorus and Concerto de Bassus with conductor Franz Hauk. Soloists include sopranos Yvonne Prentki and Andrea Lauren Brown, tenor Markus Schäfer, and bass Andreas Mattersberger.

Image Opera Overtures
Albert Lortzing’s works explore a variety of subjects, from romantic fairy tales to heroic calls for political freedom, which inevitably led to bans on performance. With the exception of recordings of the complete operas, of which there are in any case very few, these opera overtures are exceptionally rare on disc.

Alberto Nepomuceno was a herald of Brazilian musical nationalism and was active in the promotion of Villa-Lobos’ music. This is the first in a new series devoted to 19th- and 20th-century Brazilian composers with the Minas and Goiás orchestras.

Image Le Corsaire (DVD)
With its narrative of buccaneering bravado, exotic opulence, romance and traitorous intrigue, Le Corsaire is one of the most impressive narrative ballets of the 19th century, and it remains one of Adolphe Adam’s best-known works. Director of the Wiener Staatsballett, Manuel Legris, has choreographed a new version that draws on the rich performance traditions of Russia and France, and carefully combines spirited action, Adam’s delightful music, choreography, scenery and costumes into an elegant and impressive production which brings to life the colourful events that surround the leading couple of Conrad and Médora.

Image String Quintets Nos. 1 and 2
A fine coupling: the instrumentation of the Quintets (with two vioas) has kept them more niche in the catalogue when compared with the String Quartets. The New Zealand String Quartet has recorded numerous highly successful titles on Naxos. They are joined here by acclaimed violist Maria Lambros.
