    New Releases: Rosanne Philippens Plays Prokofiev

    Critic: Leonard Ip


    Most of the pieces on this CD was written before Prokofiev became vexed by ideological discussions, and they reflect his quest among different cultures. With the exception of the solo sonata, they were composed in the West. Only after he settled in Moscow in 1936 did he experience the tragic fate of the great composers and writers under the Stalinist system, revered one day and maligned the next.

    New Releases: Grainger: Wind Band Music Vol. 1 (Naxos)

    Critic: Dennis Wu


    This is the first volume in a complete sequence of Percy Grainger’s music for wind band and it adheres strictly to his instrumental demands, whether for Hammond organ, Swiss hand bells or steel marimbaphone. Grainger, who considered the medium an unrivalled vehicle for emotional expression, wrote a series of Chosen Gems for Winds, which include beautiful transcriptions of music by composers such as Bach, Franck and Faure. This first volume also contains some of his greatest and most joyous creations—the immortal CountryGardens, Shepherd’s Hey and Molly on the Shore.



    New Releases: Brahms & Mahler: Piano Quartets (Naxos)

    Critic: Dennis Wu


    After a period as a court composer at Detmold, Brahms returned to the city of his birth, Hamburg, in January 1860. Here, in relative tranquillity, he explored the then rare piano quartet repertoire. The Piano Quartet No. 2 received a very sympathetic hearing in Vienna, Clara Schumann even preferring it to its immediate predecessor, the Piano Quartet, Op. 25 [Naxos 8572798]. Its lyricism is heightened by a romantically beautiful Adagio. Mahler’s vibrant Piano Quartet in A minor dates from 1876, the end of his first year at the Vienna Conservatory, where the only completed movement was first performed. (Naxos)
