SYMPHONY NO. 9 IN D MINOR

Chesky Records

Beethoven, Symphony No. 9 in D minor
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Rene Leibowitz, conductor
Inge Borkh, Soprano
Ruth Siewert, Contralto
Richard Lewis, Tenor
Ludwig Weber, Bass
The Beecham Choral Society

Richard Wagner wrote that Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony was the redemption of music into drama. Claude Debussy said that it was amazing that the work had not been buried under the mass of prose it had provoked. While it is true that the work has been criticized by some for its choral finale, it is revered by many, admired by more, and held in awe by almost all. It is one of the greatest achievements of Western Music.

Messiah
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Claude Debussy once remarked that it was amazing that Betthoven’s Ninth Symphony had not been buried under the prose it had provoked. The same is true of Messiah, which, in spite of changing views as to how it should be presented, remains the most beloved and most often performed oratorio ever composed.

Dominic Miller & Neil Stacey

domillercd
New Dawn
Naim CD066

New Dawn is a seamless tapestry of superb guitar skills from Neil Stacey and Dominic Miller, who have written all twelve tracks featuring original music for two guitars.

Dominic has played guitar with Sting’s band for 18 years and Sting has co-written two of the tracks.

New Dawn is light and melodic, beautiful and reflective.

This is music not to be missed! Neil and Dominic played Pizza Express in July. It was originally to have been two dates, but such was the demand for tickets to see them, that an additional three dates had to be booked including two on a Saturday night!

Håvard Gimse

gimsecd

Chopin Scherzi and Preludes
Naim CD028

Chopin is renowned for compositions that exploit the full potential of the piano. This beautifully played and recorded disc is a superb example of an extremely talented young pianist’s interpretation of these complex works.

Håvard Gimse has accompanied many orchestras, including the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra, which the Naim Label has recorded on several occasions. Håvard has also won numerous awards and accolades; the European piano competition, the Steinway prize and the prestigious Grieg prize being among them. His style and presentation are such that this disc warrants repeated, awe-inspired listening.

Ken Christianson recorded Håvard live and unmixed direct to two-track tape.
