    NP:

    Stravinsky
    Le sacre du printemps
    Czech PO
    Ančerl




    A sizzling performance. I’m not a download guy but I was hunting all three of the Stravinsky Ančerl Gold recordings and couldn’t find the physical releases for a decent price, so I downloaded these from Qobuz --- they were each $4.99. Not a bad deal.

    BBC Proms

    Live at the BBC Proms:
    Ryan Bancroft and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales perform Saint-Saëns’s Cello Concerto No .1 with Guy Johnston, before closing with Brahms's Fourth Symphony.

    Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
    Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas

    Purcell, arr. Stokowski: When I am laid in earth (Dido’s Lament)
    c. 7.35pm
    Elizabeth Ogonek: Cloudline (BBC co-commission: world premiere)
    c. 7.50pm
    Saint‐Saëns: Cello Concerto No 1 in A minor, Op 33

    c. 8.10pm
    Interval: Katy Hamilton talks to Nicola Heywood Thomas about tonight's programme and looks forward to highlights of the week ahead.

    c. 8.35pm
    Brahms: Symphony No 4 in E minor, Op 98

    Guy Johnston (cello)
    BBC National Orchestra of Wales
    Ryan Bancroft (conductor)


    Musical borrowings, reworkings and reinventions run through this season’s Proms. The invisible thread linking tonight’s concert really begins with Bach. A lilting chaconne from his Cantata No. 150 underpins the finale of Brahms’s Symphony No. 4, and the latter’s elegant synthesis of heart and head is itself the inspiration for American composer Elizabeth Ogonek’s Cloudline, a lyrical homage to ancient musical forms and techniques. The chaconne’s repeating patterns are echoed elsewhere in the circling bass line of Purcell’s powerful Lament from Dido and Aeneas. Cellist Guy Johnston is the soloist in anniversary-composer Saint-Saëns’s Cello Concerto No 1.

    Earlier today:

    Goldmark: Violin Concerto No. 1

    Nai-Yuan Hu - Seattle Symphony - Gerard Schwarz

    Don't let the cheesy album cover deter you. This is a superb recording of two great compositions that deserve a larger presence in the repertoire.





    Goldmark: Symphony No. 2

    Singapore SO - Lan Shui

    Essentially completing my Goldmark symphony cycle today.





    Tchaikovsky: Piano Concerto No. 1
    Vladimir Ashkenazy - LSO - Lorin Maazel

    Now playing from this new arrival:

    Shostakovich
    Symphony No. 4 in C minor, Op. 43
    Tatarstan National SO
    Sladkovsky




    As you can see, I went right for the hard stuff and Sladkovsky and his Tatarstan forces don’t disappoint.

    All top-drawer works in outstanding performances. A work from Berg that I never paid much attention to and blew me away many months ago was Der Wein (the Jessye Norman/Boulez performance). What an awesome work.
