    Hans Werner Henze - various works part five of five for either side of an hour's walk.


    Symphony no.7 (1983-84):

    ***

    (*** same recording but different artwork)


    Fünf Nachtstücke for violin and piano (1990):
    Violin Concerto no.3 (1997):




    Three Auden Songs for tenor and piano [Texts: W.H. Auden] (1983):
    Sechs Gesänge aus dem Arabischen for tenor and piano [Texts: Hans Werner Henze, with additional extracts from J.W. von Goethe and Hafiz] (1997–98):

    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    The Geneva Chamber Orchestra begin their concert with a work by Henryk Pachulski (1859-1921). Though born in Poland, he spent most of his life in Russia, working as a pianist, composer and teacher. His Suite dedicated to the memory of Tchaikovsky was written in 1897. After this rarity, Gautier Capuçon joins the orchestra in two celebrated cello concertos, and the programme is completed with Haydn’s ‘Hen’ symphony, so called because a clucking second subject in the first movement, reminded listeners of the jerky back-and-forth head motion of a walking hen.

    Presented by Fiona Talkington.

    Gautier Capuçon, cello
    Geneva Chamber Orchestra
    Marzena Diakun, conductor

    Henryk Pachulski: Suite Op 13, 'In memoriam P Tchaikovsky'
    Haydn: Cello Concerto No 1 in C major
    Haydn: Symphony No 83 in G minor, 'The Hen'
    Saint-Saëns: Cello Concerto No 1 in A minor Op 33

    Recorded at the Victoria Hall, Geneva, on 21 November 2020.

    Beethoven, Symphony No 3 'Eroica' - Vienna PO, Claudio Abbado.

    A live recording which sounds very good to my ears.
    But did I hear a slightly squawky note on a woodwind enterance, surely not from the mighty VPO - not that it matters it just makes the event more real for me.
    I do like live recordings, provided the sound isn't compromised.
