Symphony 6 - Martinu (tightly-knit work, rapidly changing moods) / Symph. in D major - Vorisek (Czech of Early 19C) - RHS 309

£5.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

(featuring the New Philharmonia Orchestra, conducted by Michael Bialoguski, in an Early Seventies recording, made in London. Front cover artwork by Max Ernst, "The Bottled Moon")

Bohuslav Martinu's (1890-1959) Sixth and final Symphony, subtitled "Fantaises Symphoniques", was composed between 1951-53. The fact that the Czech composer dedicated the Symphony, to his good friend, French conductor Charles Munch, is very revealing, as to the nature of the work : For Martinu, admitted that he wished to write something, for Munch, which reflected the rhapsodic and free style, of the Frenchman's conducting ; therefore - thought Martinu - a Symphony with rapidly changing moods, and - despite the reference to "Fantaises" in its title - a very tightly-knit structure, should be the order of the day.
Side One : Symphony No.6 "Fantaisies Symphoniques", by Martinu :-
1) I Lento - Allegro - Lento 2) II Poco Allegro. Lento.

Jan Vaclav Hugo Vorisek (1791-1825) composed his one, and only, Symphony in D major in the Austrian capital, Vienna in 1823, where the Czech-born composer lived, for the last twelve years of his short, but relatively happy, life. Indeed, it is a Symphony, that is scored in a manner that has subtle touches of two of Vienna's somewhat more famous -and, slightly earlier - inhabitants : Josef Haydn and Ludwig van Beethoven. It is one of Vorisek's most mature compositions, and the melodic inventions provide ideal material for development.
Side Two : Symphony in D major, by Vorisek :-
1) I Allegro con brio 2) II Andante 3) III Scherzo : Allegro ma non troppo 4) IV Finale : Allegro con brio.

Records graded visually to RRPG grades (record/sleeve) EX/EX.
