Award-winning conductor and composer Johan de Meij’s First Symphony ‘The Lord of the Rings’ is a spectacular evocation in five portraits and scenes based on Tolkien’s tale of a grand quest and the struggle of good against evil. The Second Symphony is an ode to the symmetry of New York’s streets and its massive architecture, as well as a tribute to the American styles of Copland and Bernstein, while the cinematic effects of the Third Symphony form an epic paean to the entire earth in all its miraculous beauty.

Review By eurowinds,November 2013

Das kunstvolle CD-Cover »Planet NYC« bringt de Meijs Sinfonien auf einen gemeinsamen abgerundeten Nenner: magische Faszination. Der »Planet Erde« wird hier von Saurons flammendem Auge und einer urbanen Skyline umrandet. Treffender kann man de Meijs Meilensteine nicht visualisieren. Auf der ersten CD erklingen seine erste Sinfonie »The Lord of the Rings« und die zweite Sinfonie »The Big Apple«. Auf den zweiten Silberling ist »Planet Earth« gebrannt. Das Orchester hat hier alle drei Sinfonien in jeweils wechselnder Besetzung eingespielt, zumal die Aufnahmen aus den Jahren 1998, 2009 und 2011 stammen. Wer Johan de Meijs Sinfonien bisher von üppig aufgefächerten Bandas oder Harmonieorchestern gehört hat, wird

Das Booklet dieser mittlerweile 43. Auflage der »Wind Band Classics« bietet ausführliche Informationen zu Johan de Meij, seinen Werken und den hier ausführenden Interpreten. Für interessierte Genre-Neulinge, aber auch für Szene-Kenner stellt diese Edition ein absolutes »Must-Have« dar. Topaktuell war von Johan de Meij zu erfahren, daß die Einspielung soeben für den »Grammy« nominiert wurde und sich in der ersten Runde der Kategorie »Orchestral « befindet. In der kommenden Ausgabe von eurowinds werden wir ausführlich über die CD-Serie »Naxos Wind Band Classics « berichten. © 2013 eurowinds
