Bolero!: Orchestral Fireworks
4.8 out of 5 stars with 188 reviews
CD It's gutsy for a young conductor and a second-tier orchestra to take on a program of showpieces, but Oue and the Minnesotans acquit themselves well, exhibiting flair and color in pieces that need them to make an effect. The big works are Liszt's Les Préludes and Ravel's Bolero. The Liszt gets a terrific reading--just listen to the warmth of the strings as they sing the melody about 3'40'' in the delicacy of the wind phrases and the power of the grand climax. There's charm aplenty too, as in

4.7 out of 5 stars with 270 reviews
This was the set that really got the ''authentic instrument'' craze going. It was a big, ambitious project that promised a fresh look at familiar music, as well as lots of exciting new discoveries. Christopher Hogwood tailored his forces to match what we know of the actual size and constitution of the orchestras of the period, and since Mozart wrote symphonies in every country in Europe, including England, France, Italy, Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia, the result is practically a blueprint

Schmidt: Book with Seven Seals
4.2 out of 5 stars with 287 reviews
The present CD is the recorded document of a special performance. When Simone Young lay down her baton on 15 June 2015 after the performance of Franz Schmidts The Book with Seven Seals, it was the 45th programme in the 90th Philharmonic concert that she had conducted within the ten years of her term as Hamburg Artistic Director (August 2005 to July 2015). Thus the Hamburg State Philharmonic Orchestra did not require much persuading to issue this rarely performed work as a CD on the

Handel: L'Allegro, il Pensoroso el il Moderato
mpn: 724354541728, ean: 0724354541728,
4.1 out of 5 stars with 206 reviews
One of the best ideas Handel and his colleagues ever had was to make an oratorio out of John Milton's verse--specifically, of Milton's ''L'Allegro'' and ''Il Penseroso'' (''The Happy Man'' and ''The Pensive Man''), with the libretto cutting back and forth between the two poems to make a sort of dialogue, and with an added conclusion titled ''Il Moderato'' (''The Moderate Man''). The resulting work has never been as famous as Messiah, but it has always been a special favorite of Handel lovers.
