  • Classical Symphony, Op. 25, in Full Score (Dover Music Scores)

    Prokofiev's first symphony, which he mischievously dubbed "Classical," is a sprightly piece based on the symphonic models of Haydn. "I thought that if Haydn were alive today he would compose just as he did before, but at the same time would include something new in his manner of composition," Prokofiev remarked. "I wanted to compose such a symphony...

  • Principles of Orchestration (Dover Books on Music)

    "To orchestrate is to create, and this cannot be taught," wrote Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov, the great Russian composer whose genius for brilliant, highly colored orchestration is unsurpassed. But invention, in all art, is closely allied to technique, and technique can be taught. This book, therefore, which differs from most other texts on the subject ...

    Henry Brant’s new guide to orchestration is, in fact, the result of his lifelong work as a conductor, composer, and teacher; its first page written in the 1940s, and its final page written in 2005. In observation of other orchestration texts throughout his life, Brant realized that many were incomplete, in that they gave instructions based on hop...

    Among the most popular and important modern British composers, Gustav Holst (1874–1934) was a true eccentric, given to odd enthusiasms and mystical musings. His spectacular symphonic work The Planets, first performed in 1918, established his international reputation and remains a staple of the orchestral repertoire to this day. Scored for huge or...

  • Classical music has had a few really popular stars, Puccini, Offenbach, Philip Glass, composers whose works were readily gobbled up by a waiting public the minute the ink was dry, but none could surpass the box office appeal of Johann Strauss Jr. For half a century the Waltz King played to sold-out houses in Austria, Europe, and America, and while demand for his memorably tuneful waltzes and polkas never ceased, neither did his capacity to supply them, with his catalog numbering more than 500.This Naxos disc is the first of 10 volumes collecting the best material from Marco Polo's monumental series of the complete Strauss orchestral works. Each volume features two or three of the most famous hits coupled with lesser known but often no less interesting items. Here, for example, you get the overture to 'Die Fledermaus' and the 'Emperor Waltz' alongside Strauss' very first published waltz, 'Sinngedichte' and the novel 'Explosions Polka,' which employs pyrotechnic party favors. The performances, by a variety of orchestras and conductors, are consistently fine and well recorded.

  • Antonio Vivaldi is best known for his many string concertos, yet he excelled in almost every genre. Vivaldi wrote countless chamber works, dozens of fine operas, solo voice motets, and sublime sacred choral works. Vivaldi's greatest choral works were written while he served as maestro of the famous Ospedale della Pieta in Venice. The Pieta was an orphanage for girls and Vivaldi wrote some of his most demanding music for his gifted students.The works on this disc display all the hallmarks of Vivaldi's mature style: melodic inventiveness, rhythmic vitality and a keen sense of drama. The orchestral accompaniment for these works is filled with the same color and lyrical richness that's found in Vivaldi's many concertos. There are many glorious moments in this music, perhaps the most memorable is the heavenly ascending vocal line of "Exortum est in tenebris" from the motet, "Beatus vir." Soprano Susan Gritton sings the work with crystal clear intonation and tonal beauty. The performances by all the vocal soloists and the excellent period instrument ensemble, the Kings Consort, make a very strong case for these little known but remarkable works.
