Music by four Swiss composers : Bloch, Andreae, Honegger and Binet - CT-64-11

£5.99

Product description

Ernest Bloch (1880-1954) was 24, when he began work on the 'Macbeth' opera. The Swiss-born, US-based composer's conception of the music was to express the inner ferments of the characters, more important to him than the actual external drama. With little encouragement from his countrymen, with no financial subsidy, he was stirred by an immense inner force.

Side One : 1) Two Interludes from Macbeth, by Bloch (1909 ; 13:24)

Volkmar Andreae was in his day one of the leading conductors in Central Europe. As conductor of the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra he dominated Swiss music life for almost half a century, while he was one of the first men anywhere to champion the symphonies of Gustav Mahler. But his real gift lay in composition. His early style was influenced by Richard Strauss, but his music soon developed its own brand of late Romanticism. His compositions have been described as "by turns, exuberant and melancholic, and always sumptuously orchestrated".

Side One : 2) Music for Orchestra, by Andreae op.35 (1929 ; 10:00)

Concerto da Camera is a concerto in three movements for the unusual combination of flute, English horn, and string orchestra written by Arthur Honegger late in his career in 1948. He had previously composed Concertos for both Cello and Concertina, which were decidedly influenced by jazzier elements, but the Concerto da Camera is more eclectic in its influences, folk elements to the fore, especially in the first movement.

Side Two : 1) Concerto da Camera, for flute, English horns & Strings, by Honneger (1948 ; 15:45)

The collection finishes with Jean Binet's (1893-1960) Petit Concert for Clarinet and Orchestra. Binet was a pupil of Erenst Bloch's, when Bloch lived in the US.

Side Two : 2) Petit Concert for Clarinet & Orchestra, by Binet (6:20)
