    Over the course of the past week...

    g.jpg

    Madin: Te Deum pour les Victoires de Louis XV

    Anne Magouet (soprano), Michiko Takahashi (soprano), Robert Getchell (tenor), Alban Dufourt (tenor), Alain Buet (bass), Geoffroy Buffiere (bass)

    Stradivaria & Les Cris de Paris, Daniel Cuiller


    Link to complete album -

    https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...XKH0VPk_CK1Ut8

    "For the first time since its premiere in the eighteenth century, Henry Madin’s Te Deum for the victories of Louis XV rang out in 2015 in the Chapelle Royale at Versailles. Stradivaria, the Baroque ensemble of Nantes directed by Daniel Cuiller, and Les Cris de Paris, the chamber choir conducted by Geoffroy Jourdain, here revive the work of this composer born in Verdun in 1698 who was sous-maître de la Chapelle du Roi from 1738 onwards. The performance of the Te Deum, the longest setting composed during the Ancien Régime, is coupled with Diligam te, Domine, one of Madin’s principal works in the style of the grand motet for large chorus. At the single concert immortalised here, the two works came back to life in a highly symbolic historic venue."

    Two more composers named Nielsen I've discovered recently. Ludolf Nielsen is the other Dane I discovered a few months back.

    Svend Hvidtfelt Nielsen born 1958. This piece is for piano, bassoon, and bass clarinet. It most likely will appeal to modern music fans.



    Svend Nielsen born 1937. This one sounds influenced by Norgard. A beautiful piece!

    Short-term thinkers are rewarded with reelection, while those who dare to take seriously our responsibility to future generations commonly find themselves out of office.

    Morton Feldman: Rothko Chapel. William Winant (percussion), Karen Rosenak (celeste), David Abel (viola), & Philip Brett conducting the UC Berkeley Chamber Chorus. I'm getting to be hooked on Feldman, I think!

    The Rothko Chapel just ended, now this:





    I like the album artwork; in his latter years Feldman became obsessed with Persian rugs, and this is a funny way of illustrating that connection.

    I find the 7th a very inventive work. I am not so keen on the 8th.

    Strauss: Josephslegende and

    Festmarsch
    Feuersnot
    Liebesszene (from Feuersnot)


    Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Neeme Järvi




    Presto Classical 10th June 2013

    The Royal Scottish National Orchestra play this technically very difficult score magnificently, whilst Neeme Järvi creates real tension and nervous energy by his carefully calculated tempos and tempo relationships. Solos are well phrased and characterized, while orchestral balance is close on perfect...A really welcome addition then to anyone’s Strauss discography. Strongly recommended.
