The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra: Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Henry Purcell, Op. 34

16:32
     
 Gennady Rozhdestvensky Conductor
 Rozhdestvensky, Gennady


Gennadi Rozhdestvensky never recorded Holst’s Planets. This Royal Festival Hall performance from 1980 is a freshly conceived interpretation which is both exciting and superbly played. The stereo recording has a spectacular dynamic range. The performance of Britten’s Variations & Fugue on a Theme of Purcell was given on a Far East tour in Osaka, Japan one year later. Osaka’s Royal Festival Hall has a wonderful natural acoustic which invests each instrument with great clarity and warmth.

“...Rozhdestvensky’s 1980 rendition of The Planets as presented here is outstanding, and his Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra is nearly as good.   This CD is a valuable souvenir of this conductor at his best.”

 
Fanfare - July 2012
 

“Britten’s Young Person’s Guide was taped at a BBC SO concert in Tokyo and it’s even better - a most attractively characterized performance, played with wit, zest and imagination, and reaching a terrific climax in the closing fugue.”
 
International Record Review - May 2012
 

 "Rozhdestvensky’s affinity with British music is evident in this marvellously airy, epic Planets  and sprightly Variations. Plain broadcast recording sound, but too enjoyable to be merely historic."  *****

Michael Scott Rohan - BBC Music magazine (Brief Notes section) - September 2012
