Chandos CHAN 10791

D’Indy / Krenek / Schulhoff: Concerti Grossi – Soloists, Academy of St Martin in the Fields, Sir Neville Marriner

The Concert by d’Indy was his last orchestral piece, written at the age of seventy-five. It combines lean scoring and strong, lucid instrumental lines with romantic harmonic colouring. The first movement is cheerful and energetic, while the second exudes some of the melancholy of old age, but without any regrets. The energetic final movement stands as a declaration of personal optimism and hope for the future of France.

Ernst Krenek has been described as a one-man compendium of twentieth-century music. He himself expressed a conviction that ‘it is perfectly legitimate for a composer to look for something different just because it’s new and different, and he should stop apologising for being curious’. This is the world premiere recording of his Concertino, which Krenek wrote before being forced, as a ‘degenerate’ artist, to leave Austria in 1938.

Erwin Schulhoff was another composer perpetually swept up by the newest musical currents. Many composers of the day took enthusiastically to jazz as a means of breaking with the nineteenth century and freeing themselves to explore more unconventional genres. In the Concerto doppio, Schulhoff was drawn to the neo-baroque concerto grosso at least partly because of its affinity with jazz.

Since the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, led by Sir Neville Marriner, secured its first recording contract in 1961 it has gone on to become the most recorded chamber orchestra in the world, with a discography of more than 500 entries. It is joined here by the flautist Karl-Heinz Schütz, violinist Christoph Koncz, and cellist Robert Nagy, not to mention the pianist Maria Prinz who in 2011 came up with the idea behind this disc.

“… The performances from soloists and orchestra are adept, and Marriner’s lively direction makes a good case for this fare. It’s good to hear such buoyant music-making from a nonagenarian. Chandos’s sound is, per normal, first-rate.”

Don O’Connor – American Record Guide – March/April 2014   


 “… Marriner’s vigorous, well played and warmly recorded performances are self-recommending. If this interesting program tempts you, you should not be disappointed.”

Phillip Scott – Fanfare – March/April 2014

                               Performance ****      Recording ****

"... Altogether this is an attractive disc: all the ’ripieno’ soloists are excellent, Karl-Heinz Schütz’s flute and Robert Nagy’s cello calling for special mention. Marriner and the Academy of St martin in the Fields provide accompaniment of the necessary brio and point."

Calum MacDonald - BBC Music magazine - February 2014

"...Sir Neville Marriner’s powers as a conductor show no slackening in this lively and youthful sounding programme, and the Academy of St Martin in the Fields sounds at the top of its game on its home turf. This is a release with everything going for it.

Dominy Clements - - 28 November 2013

 "Three very different soundworlds - of Schulhoff, Krenek and D’Indy - form a fascinating programme and a delightful listen... Performances and recording are second-to-none: buy and explore!" *****

Guy Weatherall - Classical Music magazine - November 2013

“… this is an engaging and entertaining release from Chandos, nicely played and decently recorded …”

Michael  Jameson – International Record Review – November 2013

"...Rare repertoire indeed and one for the curious."

Peter Spaull - Liverpool Post - 24 October 2013

“…An interesting mix then, well played and recorded throughout, with the Krenek being the undoubted highlight. “
David Barker – – 1 October 2013
