Clyne, A.: Night Ferry / Bates, M.: Alternative Energy (Chicago Symphony, Muti)
CSO Resound: CSOR9011401

The two pieces on this new, digital-only release from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's in-house label were recorded live at their 2012 premieres. Mason Bates's Alternative Energy and Anna Clyne's Night Ferry were both commissioned by the CSO and premiered under the baton of the Orchestra's music director Riccardo Muti. "Muti and the CSO members...threw themselves into the music with considerable mega-wattage of their own." — Chicago Tribune


Other Featured New Releases:


Maxwell Davies, P.: Lighthouse (The) [Chamber Opera] (Neil Mackie, Keyte, Comboy, Members of BBC Philharmonic, Maxwell Davies) Maxwell Davies, P.: Lighthouse (The) [Chamber Opera] (Neil Mackie, Keyte, Comboy, Members of BBC Philharmonic, Maxwell Davies)
Naxos: 8.660354

Peter Maxwell Davies's haunting and thrilling chamber opera The Lighthouse is heard here in its première recording. It tells the story of the Flannan Isles lighthouse in the Outer Hebrides, discovered empty, the three keepers apparently having disappeared into thin air. It imagines what might have become of the three men, marooned in their storm-bound tower and overwhelmed by ghostly visions and crazed desperation, creating a dramatic story which remains a mystery to this day.
   
Schubert, F.: Lazarus [Oratorio] (Wegener, Winkel, Harmsen, A. Weller, Lichdi, Berndt, Stuttgart Chamber Choir, Hofkapelle Stuttgart, Bernius) Schubert, F.: Lazarus [Oratorio] (Wegener, Winkel, Harmsen, A. Weller, Lichdi, Berndt, Stuttgart Chamber Choir, Hofkapelle Stuttgart, Bernius)
Carus: Carus83.293

After the prize-winning first recording of Franz Schubert's opera Sakontala, Frieder Bernius has now turned to his oratorio Lazarus. Although it only survives as a fragment, Lazarus is often regarded as a forerunner of Wagner's Parsifal because of its recitative-arioso form, and still retains its place in the repertoire. For the live recording from the Bachfest Leipzig 2013, Bernius was joined by a distinguished line-up of soloists, the Kammerchor Stuttgart and the Hofkapelle Stuttgart.
   
Piano Recital: Han, Yoonie - Gluck, C.W. / Liszt, F. / Hahn, R. / Prokofiev, S. / Granados, E. / Wiprud, T. (Love and Longing) Piano Recital: Han, Yoonie - Gluck, C.W. / Liszt, F. / Hahn, R. / Prokofiev, S. / Granados, E. / Wiprud, T. (Love and Longing)
Steinway and Sons: Steinway30030

Love and Longing marks the debut release of Yoonie Han on the Steinway & Sons Label. This recording is one of a group of new releases from the Steinway label that highlights rising artists who have garnered critical acclaim and notable achievements. Yoonie Han has won the top prizes at the International Bachauer Piano Competition, Washington International Piano Competition, the Fulbright Concerto Competition, the World Piano Competition, and the Kosciuszko Chopin Competition.
