Symphony 1 - Sibelius (Borodin-influenced, final flowering of 19C Symphonic-Style - ASD 2366)

£6.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

(featuring the one and only, Sir John Barbirolli, conducting the Halle Orchestra)

Jean Sibelius (1865-1957) did not embark on a symphonic work, until he had considerable compositional experience (- he already had the likes of comparative-masterpieces, such as : "En Saga" {1892} ; "The Swan of Tuonela" {1893} ; and, "The Return of Lemminkainen" {1895} under his belt -), and so, it was no surprise that this considerable, 1899 work is sometimes described as "The Final Flowering of the Nineteenth Century Symphony".

Unlike its successor, in which Sibelius firmly imprinted his own, unmistakable Finnish style, Symphony No.1 in E minor, does betray a definite Borodin influence. This is especially so in the First Movement, whose subject matter contains an obvious ode to the Russian's own First Symphony. The counterpoint, however, is that if Sibelius did take note of Borodin's Symphony No.1, then he almost certainly absorbed the Russian's influence with such thoroughness, that the Finnish composer did not sacrifice virtually any of his own musical personality.

Side One : Symphony No.1 in E minor Op.39 :-
1) I Andante, ma non troppo - Allegro energico 2) II Andante (ma non troppo lento) 3) III Scherzo (Allegro - Lento {ma non troppo} - Tempo I).
Side Two : Symphony 1 ... (conclusion) :-
1) IV Finale (Quasi una Fantasia) Andante - Allegro molto.

The album concludes, with excerpts from Sibelius' own take on the Maeterlinck poetic play "Pelleas & Melisande". The Finn was the second composer to write music to Maeterlinck's work - this being incidental 1905 music -, whilst the Frenchman, Claude Debussy had composed an equivalent, entire opera, three years prior.
Side Two : 2) Pelleas & Melisande Op.46 :-
i) At the Castle Gate ii) Melisande iii) The Death of Melisande.
