Cuban Symphonic Music

Works by Caturla, Farinas, Gonzalez Mantici, Lopez-Gavilan del Rosario und Nieto

Orquesta Sinfonica Nacional de Cuba
Enrique Pérez Mesa

MDG 601 1873-2

Info

Cuba is music. Our first association here may be with the Buena Vista Social Club from the famous film by Wim Wenders, but Cuban music holds many other treasures in store. The Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional de Cuba, performing under its principal conductor Enrique Pérez Mesa, now for the first time on MDG surveys the incredible variety of the Cuban music tradition, which originated long before the colonial period and above all in the nineteenth century and early twentieth century combined European influences, Caribbean joy of life, and and Afro-American ingredients to form a fascinating and unique idiom.

Robert Schumann (1810-1856)
Piano Quartet op. 47

Felix Draeseke (1835-1913)
Piano Quintet op. 48

Mozart Klavierquartett
Klaus Schilde, piano
Gottfried Langenstein, horn

MDG 615 0673-2

Info

This re-release combines the unfamiliar and the well known: the recording premiere of Felix Draeseke's Quintet for Piano, Violin, Viola, Violoncello, and Horn op. 48 and one of the central works of the chamber repertoire, namely Robert Schumann's Piano Quartet op. 47.
Draeseke's Piano Quartet in B flat major reveals his mastery in the field of motivic elaboration and veneration for the New German school. This great chamber work's expressive melodies and colorful harmonies make it a genuine romantic showpiece. And the tone color of the horn lends it that extraspecial touch.

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (1714-1788)

Organ Works (with varied repeats)

Yuval Rabin, Orgel

Ferdinand-Stieffell-Organ Endingen

MDG 906 1875-5

Info

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach was the pioneer of an epochal change. For the two hundredth anniversary of the birth of the most influential son of the great Johann Sebastian Bach, Yuval Rabin has taken on a very special project. This Israeli organist who exhaustively studied Bach's instructions for the treatment of repetitions in his doctoral dissertation now puts his findings to the practical test. Fascinating indeed - how "the true manner of playing the clavier," on the basis of a mere repetition, even in our quick-paced times makes for a most highly entertaining experience!
