Der Ring Des Nibelungen (Orchestral Highlights), Siegfried-Idyll
4.6 out of 5 stars with 293 reviews
This new live recording of excerpts from Wagner's Ring sports some rough and ready playing at a couple of points, but it's also very exciting and in places absolutely spectacular. The Staatskapelle Dresden is historically Germany's finest orchestra (better than the vastly overhyped Berlin Philharmonic), and the collapse of Communism has finally given listeners in the West the chance to appreciate this great tradition of playing on a regular basis. Not only do you get all of the best orchestral

Paul Hindemith: Symphony in E flat / Nobilissima Visione, Orchestral Suite / Neues vom Tage Overture
4.5 out of 5 stars with 70 reviews
True to his German roots, Hindemith was a very serious guy, so he probably wouldn't be pleased to be told that the opening of the Symphony in E-flat sounds like the Star Wars or Superma film scores. But the music does have a truly heroic quality, and each of it's four movements is packed full of memorable material. The second movement is a funeral march of truly impressive grandeur. In short, anyone who cares about good modern symphonies really ought to hear this, and the couplings--a spicy

Braunfels: Orchestral Songs, Vol. 1
4.5 out of 5 stars with 188 reviews
Walter Braunfels achieved his breakthrough as a composer during the 1920s with the opera The Birds (based on Aristophanes). Shortly thereafter he was, alongside Richard Strauss, one of the outstanding and most frequently performed German opera composers. His extremely versatile compositional oeuvre includes numerous operas, orchestral works and choral works, as well as Lieder, chamber music and piano works. He was praised as a forward-looking representative of the New Music. The most famous
4.7 out of 5 stars with 43 reviews
Legendary performances on CD for the first time Walter Leigh, born in 1905 and killed in action near Tobruk in 1942, was a craftsman-composer of a sort commoner in the eighteenth than in the twentieth century. Almost all his music was written for immediate use; like Haydn, he would not have dreamed of fulfilling a commission without ascertaining the probable capabilities of his performers; he could plug in to any number of different idioms according to the needs of the occasion..
Dohnányi: Orchestral Works
4.7 out of 5 stars with 94 reviews
Ernst von Dohnányi was for many years a little-known and unjustly neglected composer. Chandos series of recordings of his orchestral works, performed by the BBC Philharmonic under Matthias Bamert, with a distinguished roster of soloists, significantly increased his public profile, and is now regarded as benchmarks for the repertoire. This box set features his most famous orchestral works and concertos, with contributions from such prestigious artists as James Ehnes, Howard Shelley, and
