This Week's New Features - Thursday, June 5, 2014

Dvorák and America The centerpiece of this program is the first ever recording of the Hiawatha Melodrama, a concert work for narrator and orchestra designed to show the kinship between Dvorák's New World Symphony and Longfellow's poem The Song of Hiawatha, which Dvorák said had inspired him in the symphony. This recording thus celebrates the crosscurrent of influences between the Czech composer and American music and culture. more info
Messiaen: Turangalîla-Symphonie This new Ondine recording contains Olivier Messiaen's (1908-1992) magnum opus from the 1940s, the large-scale Turangalîla-Symphonie conducted by Hannu Lintu. Featured soloists include the renowned pianist Angela Hewitt as well as Valérie Hartmann-Claverie, who plays the rare electro-acoustic ondes martenot, which, alongside with the piano, has a substantial role in Messiaen's work. more info
Per Nørgård - Symphonies 1 and 8 With this world premiere recording, the Vienna Philharmonic offers new perspectives on the most visionary voice of Nordic music and one of the greatest symphonists of our time, Danish composer Per Nørgård. Conducted on this occasion by Finnish Sakari Oramo, these performances of Nørgård's Symphonies 1 and 8 – two milestones composed with almost six decades between them – are the legendary orchestra's first recording of new Nordic music. more info
Last Chance: Kullervo - Finnish National Opera
Kullervo - Finnish National Opera Kullervo is considered by many to be Finnish opera composer Aulis Sallinen's greatest achievement. This re-issue, recorded in 1991 prior to its 1992 world-premiere performance, includes a truly stellar cast of Finnish opera singers with Jorma Hynninen singing the title role of Kullervo. Other singers in prominent roles include Eeva-Liisa Saarinen, Matti Salminen and Jorma Silvasti. more info
