Beethoven Finale

Experience two sides of Beethoven: the fierce drama of his Eroica Symphony and the calm refinement of his Fourth Piano Concerto. Young Australian pianist Jayson Gillham performs the same concerto with which he took out first prize in the 2014 Montreal International Music Competition.

It’s Beethoven in town and country when we pair his Third Piano Concerto with the evocative and beautiful Pastoral Symphony. Our soloist is Nobuyuki Tsujii, blind from birth, who caused a sensation in the 2009 Van Cliburn Competition.

Beethoven’s Ninth is more than a famous symphony - it’s become a cultural icon. It’s a celebration of freedom, of joy, of civilisation and unity. Which is what makes the Ninth with its ‘Ode to Joy’ choral finale so timeless.

As I write, the Stefan Kruger Scholarship Panel is assessing 18 applicants. The winner will perform at our Award Evening on 8 November in the Mosman Art Gallery. As per tradition the 2016 Kruger Scholar, Rebecca Gill, will welcome in the 2017 scholar. This year we are fortunate that Simon Tedeschi, a long-standing Artistic Patron, will also be performing. Talking of our Artistic Patrons, this month, Richard Tognetti, will be conducting the ACO Soloists in a program of Vivaldi and Bach, which will also premiere Singing Trees, a new work by another Fine Music artistic patron, Elena Kats-Chernin. October heralds a new series on Fine Music. Chris Blower has devised nine programs featuring the concertos of Camille SaintSaens. They will be played in order of composition. Talking of the First Piano Concerto, one of his favourites, Chris noted the slightly worrying start for the French Horns, for rather like the Brahms’ 2nd Piano Concerto, it starts with a horn call. This is then echoed by another horn call in the distance. You can join this journey on the first and third Fridays of the month at 3pm.


Jason Noble, clarinettist, teacher and performer with Ensemble Offspring presents his second series looking at repertoire for the HSC music topics – Music of the Last 25 years and Australian Music. The 2014 episodes includes interviews with a HSC first of his1974 nine-one-hour marker and an experienced teacher/performer, Di Springford, each of whom will give a perspective on how to select a piece for the HSC performance. As with the first series, New Music for the HSC will be available on demand at for listening at any time.

BRILLIANT PERFORMANCE OF BAROQUE AT ITS BEST JULIA LEZHNEVA AND THE ACO playfully depict flourishing grasses and flying birds. In an interview for Decca recordings, Lezhneva explained that her attraction to the piece comes from her understanding that to be human is to be in harmony with everything around you. There is little doubt that Lezhneva embodies such a sentiment. The first half of the program continues in such a vein. Lezhenva will exit the stage as the ACO perform J.S. Bach’s Orchestral Suite in C Major, a charming set of dances of great musicality and ensemble interplay. Following this will be Handel’s Salve Regina, a piece that seems to transcend its religious connotations. The universal need for a mother and protection is as relevant today as it was in Handel’s time. It is the simultaneous reward and responsibility of musicians to have access to this timeless medium.

It is always interesting to discover how a musician came to play their instrument. Was it a family tradition or, perhaps, luck of the draw in primary school? A vocalist, however, is in a different category for their instrument chooses them. They are gifted with a voice that they can elevate from communication to spine-tingling music making. A woman with such a gift is Russian soprano opera singer and recitalist Julia Lezhneva. Two years ago, her performance at the Hobart Baroque Festival won her a Helpmann award. Now, she will be returning to Australia to perform more dazzling Baroque repertory with the Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO). When it comes to ‘gifted’ voices, Lezhneva discovered hers from a young age. At 17, she won the Elena Obraztsova International Competition and by 20 was named ‘Young Singer of the Year’ by German magazine Opernwelt. Now 26, Lezhneva is a respected interpreter of music from the 18th and early 19th century. The specific qualities of her voice, paired with her aesthetic approach, are suited to such a role. Lezhneva combines an angelic, pure tone with flawless technique, allowing the meaning of motets and hymns to communicate to audiences without the need for them to understand the words. The program with the ACO opens with a motet by the lesser-known composer, Nicola Porpora. In caelo stele clare fulgescant or Bright Star in the Sky is as ethereal as the words suggest. The voice and strings sweetly and 2

Soprano Julia Lezhneva

In the second half, things take a dramatic turn. From the divine, Lezhneva will enter into the world of the operatic and a different set of timeless emotions. Vivaldi’s Ottone in

angelic, pure tone with flawless technique…

Villa tells the story of the Roman Emperor Ottone whose amour, Cleonilla, can’t resist flirting with two young men Ostilio and Caio. What unfolds is a passionate tale of jealousy, cross-dressing and, luckily, a happy ending for all involved. Handel’s Alessandro captures much the same sentiment. Two princesses are vying for the attention of Alexander the Great. His indecision causes much heartache but fortunately, in comic tradition, no lasting harm is done. Having performed in both of these operas, Lezhneva brings with her an in-depth understanding of the plots and characterisation. It will be interesting, then,

to see what she makes of the arias in recital. In this form, one is left with all of the emotion but none of the accompanying dramatic aids. There are no sets or costumes, only a purity of musical intention. Aptly for this ‘angelic’ woman, Lezhneva will bid farewell with Brilla nell’alma, In my soul shines a sweet contentment. Audiences will then be brought back to earth, in the gentlest possible way, with Handel’s Sonata à 5. Composed in Italy, perhaps for Corelli, it’s the perfect way to tie up an evening of Latin prayer and Italian opera. It has taken us many centuries to understand the true brilliance of the Baroque but a concert like this should be an affirmation to that judgement.

ACO TO EXPAND HORIZONS IN 2017 RICHARD EVANS ON NEW WORKS AND NEW ‘DIGS’ when Evans was General Manager of the esteemed theatre company. He commenced his role in earnest at the ACO in April this year. “It’s been great,” says Evans. “The ACO is a perfect combination, an organisation that is extremely highly regarded internationally with a prominent, powerful and successful Artistic Director at the helm. It’s a very stable organisation and well known in all its Australian territories. It’s great to be back in an organisation with music at its core,” he said. ACO’s Managing Director Richard Evans Fine Music magazine caught up with Managing Director of the Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO) after he landed home from the Orchestra’s latest tour of Europe and the US with five programs, including Barry Humphries’ Weimar Cabaret which played at Cadogan Hall, as well as Edinburgh and Tanglewood Festivals. Richard Evans says international markets are a key focus of the organisation having matured as a result of the “remarkable work over the years” by the ACO and its Artistic Director and Leader Richard Tognetti. “I’m interested in looking at our core markets and exploring what we might do there,” he said, “It’s not about doing more, but finding the resources to allow us to carefully look at new levels of collaboration”. Having notched up 565 concerts in 271 cities across 45 countries on 58 international tours, ACO players will add many more stamps to their passports in 2017, as Tognetti takes up a prestigious position as Artist-in-Residence at the Barbican Centre’s Milton Court. The residency takes place in November 2016 and March 2017. Along with a number of memorable concerts, it will usher the return of The Reef. This time Tognetti shares this thrilling celebration of music, film and the natural world with London audiences on 11 March. As for the rest of the ACO’s 2017 season, Tognetti goes for broke and clocks up a series of Australian firsts. He leads a band of fellow artistic adventurers and collaborates on the

creation of a full-length motion picture; he pairs two contemporary artists in a program that takes you from heaven to hell; he plays a ‘holy trinity’ of works as homage to arguably the greatest composer of all time; he has the ACO’s own musicians appear as soloists; and he assembles the ACO’s biggest cast ever to perform one of the best known and most-loved works in the Western classical repertoire with an international line-up of soloists and singers. One of the highlights is sure to be the world premiere of Mountain on 12 June at the Sydney Opera House (and subsequent national tour) - an epic cinematic and musical collaboration between the ACO and BAFTA-nominated Sherpa director Jennifer Peedom. In the tradition of other multimedia collaborations such as The Reef or The Crowd, Mountain reflects on the beauty, diversity and fragility of these timeless natural monuments: symbols of spirituality; havens from manmade devastation; essential to the planet’s eco-system. “It’s absolutely breathtaking,” says Evans, “It will be something to behold”. He says: “The thing about Richard is that he gets so excited about collaboration with other artists, he really gives everything to it, he’s a generous collaborator in that sense… that humility I think is what makes the results so extraordinary”. It was that sense of adventurous collaboration that initially brought the two men together; in 2002 the ACO worked with Bell Shakespeare

The ACO has been successful in raising funds and sponsorship in recent years, which Evans says is based very much on performance standards and “the quality of the music making being second to none”. This is the result of 20 years of building reputation and relationships: “People are attracted to success and excellence and the ACO has been unwavering in that”. One of the biggest challenges facing the ACO from Evans’ perspective, this year, is its relocation from its subterranean premises in Sydney’s Circular Quay to the new arts precinct at Walsh Bay. “We’re building new premises for ourselves,” explains Evan, “we’re going from not being very visible at all, to having whole new outlook, with new practice rooms, rehearsal and performance spaces, places for donors, subscribers and supporters… it will be a big transition for us”. Working towards a 2019 opening, the ACO has worked closely with the NSW government which is responsible for developing the project. Evans says: “Core to my job is the creation of an environment within which artists can make their best work. Moving into a creative hub at Walsh Bay will generate quite a different atmosphere and provide the opportunity to mix with artists from other art forms… and engender a sense of community that will add further layers to our work”.

“The creative process is different for everyone. Bach described himself not as an artist but a craftsman.” Rose see his musical journey to date as a reflection of the “pluralistic world we live in today - all these genres and so called ‘styles’ shouldn’t matter to 21st century musicians. “To me it is all a part of a process of discovery, absorption and facilitation of my response to these influences. I am simply influenced by what I enjoy, and then move on to something else.”

conducted by Rose the work is brought to life by his stellar 17-piece orchestra, featuring a new generation of Australian musical talent. “It was a big job getting that many musicians together,” says Rose. Rose has recently recorded another album with his quartet called Sandlines. This project is the culmination of an extended suite and is the exposition of compositional ideas that unravel upon the musician’s own terms with subtle, subliminal interactions of improvisation allowing the music to build from the notated material. “Sandlines reminds me of the tracks we leave behind on our life’s journey and one of the tracks Mind Over Matter is a soft post-bop tribute to the late Jeremy Rose.

has a beseeching quality, as if he’s saying, ‘Please adore this music, please love me!’,” says Beilman. Janáček’s only Violin Sonata offers a striking contrast, deeply personal and often very dark. “The Janáček Sonata’s second movement, the ‘Ballade’, is an unbelievable love story, but the entire piece is rooted in the sounds of nature. And the fourth movement is incredibly violent: the piano starts with a simple, singing melody and then the violin comes in with an almost battuto sound, like machine-gun

fire. There’s a very touching, very personal moment – and then it’s sliced through.” The second half pairs a new work by the Australian composer Jane Stanley with the Sonata No.1 by Saint-Saëns. “I love the timbres of Jane Stanley’s music,” says Beilman. “Many of her works that I’ve heard start from the depths of the instrument’s range and then emerge with an upwardlooking, reflective gaze. The Saint-Saëns is the most flamboyant piece you can end with, so we thought it would be a good juxtaposition.” Beilman is looking forward to returning to Musica Viva, having taken part in its inaugural chamber music festival a few years ago. “This festival combined chamber music from a number of different professionals across the field, but then there was also a youth orchestra component, so we were able to interact with some of the younger Australian musicians,” he says. “I spent ten days in Sydney and absolutely fell in love with it.” What he most enjoys here, he says, is “the music-making, the coffee and the audience. “I felt I got a very good sample of what musical life is like in Australia; it feels extremely optimistic. I’m sure it has a lot to do with how Carl Vine programs Musica Viva, but it does seem like the audiences want to absorb anything and everything you can throw at them. They listen very much with open ears.”

Stanley Kubrick was an American film director, screenwriter, producer, cinematographer, editor, and photographer and is frequently cited as one of the greatest and most influential directors in cinematic history. His films, which are typically adaptations of novels or short stories, cover a wide range of genres, and are noted for their realism, dark humor, unique cinematography, extensive set designs, and evocative use of music. The Orpheum announces a world premiere season of his entire feature output.

The world of Callum Henshaw My teacher Tim Kain has been particularly active in generating Australian guitar repertoire and instills in his students an appreciation for the quality music Australian composers produce. “Bleed-through is my first try at continuing this. In terms of performance, I play music from Australian composers, like From Kakadu because they’re Australian but because the music speaks so powerfully on the guitar,” says Henshaw.

Callum Henshaw A day in the life of classical guitarist Callum Henshaw usually involves coffee. And bicycles. And some guitar. Starting out on the instrument at the age of six, it soon became part of Henshaw’s daily life and he realised he wanted to pursue a career in music. Studying at ANU in Canberra put him in touch with his teacher Tim Kain who he cites as one of his greatest influences. “I have studied with him for almost seven years now, and increasingly I realise that not only is he a fantastic musician, but an amazing person whose nurture and care for the people around him is part of the reason his students have been so successful,” says Henshaw. Currently based in Darmstadt, Germany, studying at the Akademie für Tonkunst with Tilman Hoppstock, Henshaw’s many travels throughout Europe have been to perform and to compete in competitions. His latest CD offering, Echo & Return is a combination of iconic classical guitar works by Enrique Granados, Napoleon Coste, Manuel M. Ponce, as well as Australian works including Peter Sculthorpe’s From Kakadu and a brand new work, Bleed-through involving electronics by local composer Samuel Smith. “I think it is important to encourage new works for the guitar from around the world.

Echo & Return has been a long-term project that was interrupted by an injury that had to be overcome with perseverance and a new dedicated approach to practicing his instrument. “Half of the recordings were completed in 2013, the other half in late 2015 and the period between them was fraught with injury and mental illness. “I had a hectic two months of competitions and travel through Europe in 2014 which resulted in nerve damage in my upper spine and left me only able to practice for a few minutes at a time. So, while I worked on my recuperation through a combination of physical and cognitive therapies, I searched for music that could be tackled in short blocks of practice,” said Henshaw. He credits Ponce’s Folias as helping him through this trying time: “Each variation is exquisitely composed, but unusually short – none is longer than three minutes. They provided me with the right balance of musical and intellectual fodder, but didn’t require long sessions of playing. That’s not to say they’re not tricky”. The complete work (a theme, 20 variations and a fugue) runs for over 25 minutes and addresses nearly all of the technical possibilities on the guitar. “I’m still learning from it now,” explains Henshaw. “But really, I still have to be very disciplined with how long I practice for by using an obnoxiously loud timer to interrupt

my sessions every 20 minutes for a short break … and this goes on for three hours or more. “Apart from that I research for my doctorate, and try to make some time to be outside exploring the amazing mountain-biking available in Canberra and cooking a tasty meal in the evening,” he says. So what’s next for Callum Henshaw? “I have another, shorter album of quieter works in the pipeline, an Australian premiere of a new work by Leo Brouwer, and I should probably finish my PhD or my supervisor might have a heart attack,” he says.

YVA finalists and performers on 28 August in Sydney with winner Benett Tsai (front centre). Image - Charlie Chen October brings to a close the Young Virtuoso Award for 2016, with our broadcast of the Final that was held on 28 August in Sydney and hosted by Chloe Chung. The winner of the event was young cellist Benett Tsai. As part of this year’s YVA, we heard 17 semi-finalists over a series of months, each perform a radio-friendly recital program of between 45 and 50 minutes. Performing a program of this length requires stamina, skill and great musicality to sustain the playing energy and hold the audience captive. From these elite performers, six finalists performed in front of a packed house at the Verbrugghen Hall, Sydney Conservatorium of Music in August. Each musician showed why they were truly deserving of the opportunity to take part and to take away the generous prize money given to assist them in pursuing the furtherance of their studies and to contribute to what are destined to be illustrious careers in music. It was a great afternoon of diverse music with Alumna Edith Yam performing on the pipe organ and bass Christopher Nazarian receiving the Inaugural Mary Patricia Bell Award of $1,000. The winner was 12-year-old Benett Tsai who, although suffering from a slight fever, gave a mature and brilliant musical performance for one so young. He was delighted and overwhelmed by his first place and said he couldn’t believe it. He said he had not received such a generous prize of $10,000 before and it would be going towards his future overseas studies. Tsai’s winning repertoire was Hungarian Rhapsody by

Tsai now goes on to represent NSW in the MBS National Final being held in Melbourne in November, and a future solo performance in 2017 with the North Sydney symphony Orchestra.

The second place went to unaccompanied harpist Julie Kim who gave a flawless rendition of Albert Zabel’s La Source (Am Springbrunnen Op 23) and Carlos Saldeo’s Scintillation. She said it was a thrill to be included amongst such a great peer group and that her $3,000 in prize money would also be used to further her studies. Additionally, Tsai and Kim received the Newcastle Festival prize awarded by Dr David Banney for an engagement in 2017. Third place getter was pianist Paul Cheung, who enjoyed playing the Sauter piano and said he always loved performing in the Fine Music competition as it attracted such a high musical standard. He received $2,000 in prize money, playing Sonetto 123 del Petrarca and Prokofiev’s Sixth Sonata, op 82, 4th movement. The three other finalists each received $500. The broadcast of the Young Virtuoso Final presented by Chloe Chung, goes to air from 3-5.30pm on Saturday 15 October. Young Virtuosi co-ordinator Judy Deacon said: “As the mastermind behind the Young Virtuosi programs, it has certainly been a challenging and rewarding 11 years of volunteering. “To build up the Young Virtuosi programs and to expand on the great work that my predecessor Veronica Crowe as the staff education coordinator was able to do, has been a great honour,” she said. Deacon continues: “At all times my aim was to give as many young people as possible the experiences that Fine Music

had to offer whether as a performer, audio engineer, presenter, or in assisting with the organisational and administrative work needed to put to air 52 programs each year”. Deacon credits the success of the Young Virtuosi program at Fine Music to the team of 17, most of whom are under the age of 25. “Under my mentorship and guidance they have sacrificed their time whilst combining studies and work to be part of this peer supporting team,” said Deacon. “My special thank you goes to chief audio engineer Greg Ghavalas who contributed hours of his time not only recording but to mentoring many young audio personnel”. At the conclusion of this year’s Young Virtuoso award, Deacon is satisfied that again Fine Music has raised the profile of music in the community and exposed the awe-inspiring talent and skills of our young music-makers.

Mozart is served three ways in this alluring feast of classical treats. Bassoonist Ben Hoadley brings Mozart’s earliest wind concerto to life, delivering the fresh and engaging character sketch with aplomb. The composer’s last instrumental work – the much-loved Clarinet Concerto – is subtler but no less eloquent. Under the direction of renowned clarinetist Paul Meyer, the delicate interplay between the soloist and the ensemble gives rise to a performance that is all the more beautiful for its graceful sensitivity. The celebration concludes with one of Mozart’s greatest works – his deeply personal Symphony in G minor.

This year, we are using as a basis Beethoven’s own sketches for a new version of his 4th Piano Concerto. We also present an Australian premiere of an 18th century chamber version of Beethoven’s 2nd Symphony, recently discovered by AHE in the rare music collection of the British Library. Neal Peres Da Costa’s monograph Off the Record: Performing Practices in Romantic Piano Playing (Oxford University Press, New York, 2012) has received critical acclaim. Limelight Magazine hailed it as “engaging and thought provoking” … and a book that “no serious pianist should be without”.

Most of the guest stars in this celebratory concert are aged 16 years or under. The Australia Ensemble is delighted to be joined by the Sydney Children’s Choir and celebrated musical director Lyn Williams in a program named for one of her works, in a choral and instrumental collaboration of mainly Australian composers. The evening begins in the dubious surrounds of a Parisian nightclub with Guillaume Connesson’s Techno-Parade, before a celebration of the life of respected and recentlydeparted Australian composer Roger Smalley in his meticulous Piano Quintet. The warmly satisfying glow of Brahms’ String Sextet in G draws the season to a close, perhaps the pinnacle of this composer’s chamber music for strings.

In 1939 Billie Holiday first sang the song Strange Fruit (actually written by a white Jewish teacher, Abel Meeropol) and brought to raw prominence the inequity of much of America’s history. She was afraid to sing it, even in the integrated, welcoming environment of Café Society in New York’s Greenwich Village, and when she finished, there “wasn’t even a patter of applause. Then a lone person began to clap nervously. Then suddenly everybody was clapping”. In this program of blues, jazz, gospel, and more, The Song Company sing of the pain of alienation, and reach beyond the heartbreaking imagery of Strange Fruit to touch a place of reconciliation and healing. Program: Strange fruit; Motherless child; Go down, Moses; It ain’t necessarily so (revised version); Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen; and I’ll get by. October 2016

CD Reviews The Haydn Album Australian Haydn Ensemble ABC Classics


I’ve been enjoying listening to the new Australian Haydn Ensemble (AHE) CD over the past few days having had a chance to listen from the train to Newcastle during the spectacular and beautiful section where the line runs beside the grand scenic Hawkesbury River and the sparkling open stretches of Brisbane Water. The CD is called The Haydn Album which could imply dull programming but a quick look at the selection

✶ ✶ ✶✶

Heaven forbid Utzon’s iconic building should be any further ‘compromised’… yet I recall an SSO performance of ‘the 9th’, where the forte chorus entry (bar 213) almost lifted the ceiling. Joy indeed! There are similar thrilling moments in the Missa Solemnis, yet while matching the magnificence of the Choral Symphony, it also often convinces by understatement: the tenors at Et incarnatus, the hushed mood at Et sepultus, the beginning of the Sanctus, the solo violin in the Benedictus. More than once in the

of works dispelled that thought immediately. The program is a highly engaging crowd pleaser which I’m sure was test-driven in live performances to ensure audience appeal. In the spirit of the youthfulness of the AHE, the three works are all from Haydn’s early maturity and were written by a young genius for young performers. The Cello Concerto for example was written for 21 year old Josef Weigl as were the cello solos in the symphony Le Matin. Haydn himself was barely 30. The Keyboard Concerto in D was published in 1784 when Haydn was just 20 years old. The joy of listening to this CD comes from many overlapping marvels that are your constant companions during whole experience. Firstly, the ‘glow’ in the sound

of the whole ensemble that comes from the impeccable intonation and unity of purpose and communication between the players. Then there is the virtuosity of the individual musicians in the AHE playing with precision but also clearly and joyfully, and who would certainly be earning plenty of gold ducats from Prince Anton Esterhazy if he were still with us to enjoy the performance. Dynamics too are used, skilfully, often, and with great effect, unlike so many ensembles who miss the opportunity to use the light and shade from dynamics to shape the music.

Andrea Bocelli is an Italian classical crossover tenor, recording artist, and singer-songwriter. Born with poor eyesight, he became permanently blind at the age of 12 following a football accident. Kristin Lewis was born in 1985 in Little Rock, Arkansas and is described as a lyrico-spinto soprano known for her Verdi repertoire. A lyrico-spinto soprano has the limpidity and easy high notes of a lyric soprano, yet can be “pushed” on to achieve dramatic climaxes without strain. She has performed in many famous opera houses around the world and is currently based in Vienna. And of course Zubin Mehta is the distinguished Indian conductor of Western classical music and Music Director for Life of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and the Main Conductor for Valencia’s opera

house. I must say that this Aida is an excellent performance of this most impressive of Verdi’s operas. The Orchestra e Coro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino is wonderfully controlled by Mehta as is the chorus work throughout. Bocelli/Radames is in excellent form as shown by his rendition of his Se Qual Guernier io fossil whilst Lewis/Aida is introduced to the action with her dramatic aria, Ritorna Vincitor, The women and men of the resounding chorus produce some invigorating marching music and are found to be totally dependable to produce some very effective dramatic musical moments. It’s quite clear that this recording has all the hallmarks of a very impressive work.

score Beethoven writes Mit andacht (with devotion) and this rapt, devotional nature has found an ideal interpreter in the late Nikolaus Harnoncourt. Though raised a Catholic, Beethoven’s faith had little to do with the conventional church; his object of worship was a Supreme Creator whose glory was reflected in music and nature; his reverence for this God was deeply felt, so the Missa is possibly one of his most personal compositions. He described it as his “greatest work” (mind you, that wording was directed at prospective publishers). Today we’re agreed that concert pitch is A440Hz but it was variable in Beethoven’s time; this recording uses A430 (not that this gives much relief to the sopranos’ high tessitura) and Concentus Musicus – known for authentic performance – use period instruments.

As the last recording in an auspicious career, Harnoncourt (who died in March this year) could not have chosen a better piece for his valedictory. - Michael Muir

CD Reviews Shostakovich Violin Concerto No 1, Glazunov Violin Concerto Nicola Benedetti, violin Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra Kirill Karabits, conductor DECCA


The struggles of Dimitri Shostakovich, both professionally and personally have been well documented over many years and no more so than the events surrounding the time of the composition of the Violin Concerto No 1 in A Minor originally his Op 77. When the work finally appeared from the drawer, bearing the new Op.99, its impact on the Soviet psyche was real and evident. To this end, it remains one of the most difficult of all works for violin and orchestra from both a technical and emotional standpoint. Nicola Benedetti has, in All You Need is Bach Cameron Carpenter SONY


This is a fantastic compilation of Bach’s organ music. This album features Carpenter’s signature International Touring Organ (ITO) with which he has created a program containing a wide-range of

her latest release, provided a very unique and introspective account of this incredibly personal work of Shostakovich. Her translucent entry into the opening nocturne is both elegant and expressive without being overpowering. This movement, so aptly named, provides a dark and eerie insight into what might be interpreted as the calm before the storm of the satanic scherzo that follows. Initially she approaches the scherzo in a restrained manner leaving her room to expand and develop the first theme before the orchestra, skillfully led throughout by Kirill Karabits, launches into a demonic tutti which sets her up to launch into a thrilling and explosive end to the movement. Her best playing is left for the slow passacaglia which Shostakovich used to great effect throughout several of his works, namely the 4th movement of the 8th Symphony. The orchestra provides a repertoire which showcases Bach’s genius. Contrapunctus IX from The Art of Fugue is excellent, it captures the authentic art of organ playing in Bach’s works. One listen through of this work simply will not do it justice, it requires patience which will enable any listener to truly appreciate this work. Trio Sonata for Organ No. 3 in D Minor, BWV 527: III. Vivace is another exquisite work which has a great sense of flow. Carpenter’s

cohesive and underlying ground bass whilst Benedetti soars willfully above with some highly thoughtful and emotive playing. The integrated cadenza gives her the chance to wow us with her technical prowess before the runaway Burlesque finale rounds off a fresh, clean and thoroughly satisfying account of this masterpiece. The Glazunov Concerto, composed before World War 1 is a far more conservative concerto and Benedetti makes it her business to add depth and body to this generally neglected work. Highly recommended. - Frank Shostakovich recordings definitely carry a vibrant yet elegant energy, which is worth a listen even if Bach is not your usual cup of tea. In addition, the French Suite No. 5 in G Major, BWV 816 provides a stark contrast to the previous work, a lighter work in texture and atmosphere, and more exciting. Every detail has been carefully executed, no element has been overlooked or under expressed. - Leslie Khang

cal icons Satie and Gainsbourg. These are the reworking of Gnossienne No.3 retitled For Satie and the iconic La Javanese both of which work incredibly well alongside the well-worn Cole Porter classic I love Paris in a trio format with James Wapels on drums and Brendan Clarke on bass. On other tracks there are some excellent tenor contributions from Karl Laskowski accompanying Cody’s polished composition and pianism. Mostly these are the reflections of the city of Paris in which he lived for more than 25 years and that has no doubt been a formative influence for his current musical output. On this album, modern contemporary improvised music doesn’t get much better or more enjoyable

than this and Cody proves that he is the master of form. - Barry O’Sullivan

This 1960 album is a gem! It’s Benny Carter’s masterpiece as an arranger and composer, a suite written especially for his friend Count Basie and his Orchestra (the fabled “New Testament” big band) which not only had power but an array of distinguished soloists including the trumpeters Joe Newman and Thad Jones, trombonists Al Grey and Benny Powell, and in the reeds, the two Franks, Wess on alto and flute and Foster, sharing the tenor solos with Billy Mitchell, and the great latter-day rhythm section anchored by Freddie Green’s guitar. This edition of the Basie band was all about teamwork. The writing is more Basie than Carter who demonstrates his grasp of the style of this great big band with music that is exciting and

authentic, recalling the band’s original roots in Kansas City, Missouri and also paying tribute to the city’s many jazz clubs when Basie played there in the 1930’s; there would be smooth riffs by the reeds then Basie and the soloists would take over; Rompin’ In Reno is a good example. As is Vine Street Rumble where, after the reeds, brass and have set the scene with a strong, rhythmic foundation, Basie and Mitchell solo strongly. (I think it is Mitchell, not Foster, as the liner notes are in Japanese). If you love big band jazz, as I do, especially from the 60’s, it doesn’t get any better than this by one of the greatest ensembles of the past 50 years. - Kevin Jones

2002-2003, I was determined to get a copy of especially as it was claimed she was the equal of Diana Krall and, in another life, I was the first jazz writer in Australia to draw attention to the Canadian-born singer’s ability before she became famous. I was unable to get a copy but now, more than decade later, I have at last had the pleasure of listening to the Chicago singer - and it was well worth the wait. As an interpreter of melodies of The Great American Songbook she is Krall’s equal, York’s smoky voice, caressingly warm and intimate, suits to perfection these timeless melodies as she stamps them with her own personality. That a singer of this quality has recorded only four albums in 15 years is a travesty! She should have four

times as many. This album is the proof. She is consummately backed by three of my favourite musicians: Warren Vache, the best thing to happen to the jazz cornet since Ruby Braff; pianist John diMartino, her co-arranger on the date; and, on three tracks, guitarist Russell Malone. The group is completed by bassist Martin Wind and drummer Greg Sergo. Malone’s guitar adds much to York’s sublime reading of Thanks For The Memory which vies with the achingly poignant How Long Has This Been Going On as the outstanding track. York has been singing since 1980 and her honeyed maturity has resulted in the perfect vocal album. - KJ

EMI 763509.2 3:24 Count Adolar’s dead sister Emma cannot rest until the ring that’s entombed with her is watered with the tears of a wronged maiden, a secret known only to Adolar and his beloved Euryanthe. Count Lysiart bets that he can win Euryanthe for himself. Adolar stakes his fortune on her fidelity, but insists Lysiart must show proof of any victory. Eglantine is secretly in love with Adolar. She wheedles Emma’s secret out of Euryanthe, steals the ring from the tomb and gives it to Lysiart, the proof he needs to win the bet. When Euryanthe arrives to join Adolar, Lysiart denounces her. Adolar believes him, gives up his possessions, and rushes into the forest, taking Euryanthe, intending to kill her and then himself. A serpent attacks. Euryanthe protects Adolar. He cannot bring himself to kill her after that and abandons her instead. The King of France rescues her. Eglantine is about to marry Lysiart. A disguised Adolar challenges his rival. The King, to punish Adolar, tells him Euryanthe is dead. Eglantine rejoices and reveals the whole plot. Lysiart kills her, and is arrested. Euryanthe and Adolar reunite. Adolar’s sister finds peace at last. Wagner, R. Trauersinfonie on motifs from Euryanthe by Weber (1844). Dresden PO/ Michel Plasson. EMI 5 56358 2 7 Weber, C.M. Overture to Oberon (1826).

14:00 IN CONVERSATION with Michael Morton-Evans 26

Teresa Zylis-Gara. Image - Louis Melancon


Fresh from his defeat of the Saxons, King Arthur praises the fighting prowess of the knights of the Round Table, particularly Lancelot. That night Lancelot meets with the Queen, Guinevere, for a lovers’ tryst but the two are spied on by Mordred who is jealous of both and is plotting Arthur’s downfall. Lancelot fights and wounds him. Believing he has killed Mordred, Lancelot flees to his castle with Guinevere. Mordred survives and reveals the truth to the king. While waiting for Lancelot to return and deny Mordred’s accusations, Arthur consults the wizard Merlin who foretells the downfall of the Round Table.

In Rome in 64AD, Poppea, mistress of the Emperor Nerone, elicits a promise that he will repudiate his wife Ottavia to make Poppea the Empress. Seneca, upholder of the ancient virtues, urges Ottavia to show restraint and dignity. When Nerone reveals his plan to depose Ottavia in favour of Poppea, Seneca’s calm remonstrations incite him to hysterical anger. Under Poppea’s ínfluence, Nerone orders Seneca’s death. Ottavia, unable to bear the indignity of the situation, orders Ottone to kill Poppea; he involves Drusilla in the plot. Amor, God of Love, stays Ottone’s hand. He escapes but Drusilla is arrested. Both are exiled and Nerone announces the banishment of Ottavia. The coronation of Poppea follows with the tribunes and consuls of Rome paying homage. The opera ends with Poppea and Nerone singing of their love. Piano dell Madonna (1640). Julie Hassler, sop; Le Concert Brisé/William Dongois. Accent ACC 24261 9 Mainerio, G. Five dances.
