Little Composer Portraits: David T. Little Thursday, April 18,p. Little grapples with essential human issues through powerfully dramatic compositions.

Ever since her sensational SOLI SOLI Chamber Ensemble debut inwe have been eagerly crafting another collaboration together to include concerts in San Antonio, followed by a National Tour with the program, and a recording project to memorialize her unique and genre-bending music.

Contemporary and innovative in their approach, they draw inspiration from the deep traditions of Scandinavian Folk music. The ensemble has won five prestigious Danish Music Awards and toured throughout Europe and beyond, with performances in Japan and Australia.

This NYC debut is part of their first American tour. The band states, "Our approach to music sees us challenge the norms of the traditional music we were brought up with and attempt to shape it into how we imagine Nordic music can sound in The performance will be a celebration of the Martha J. Dodge Continuo Organ and a new harpsichord recently purchased from Willard Martin, both of which will be played by Benjamin Sheen.

This event is free and open to the public.

Delos DE Erich Wolfgang Korngold's score for the film The Sea Hawk has long been a yardstick for swashbuckling music, and the late Maestro James DePreist's version of it with the Oregon Symphony is as swashbuckling as any. Of course, there are a number of good performances of this work already available, and you probably have one of them, so the real find is Korngold's Symphony in F-Sharpof which there are few recordings.

Korngold premiered it inthis large-scale symphony a throwback to old-fashioned Romanticism at a time when it was no longer in vogue. Music critics largely dismissed the work as being out of touch with modern music.

Their loss; our gain. Like other Romanticists who continued on despite criticism, Korngold wrote music that was big, bold, inventive, and varied, much like the music of his mentor, Gustav Mahler. The Symphony in F-Sharp sounds a little bit cinematic, to be sure, but that's the source. It conjures up a vast, exotic, Sinbad-type adventure palette, especially in its second and fourth movements.

The long, funereal Adagiohowever, is more Mahler than anything else. The whole piece merits attention. In ordinary two-channel stereo, like my main system, it sounds overly reverberant but extremely dynamic, with good imaging and depth of field.

Played on my smaller, home-theater system in another room, the back speakers do come to life with pleasant reflections, reinforcing the illusion of a large, resonant concert hall.

The only hesitation I have comes when comparing it to a good recording in ordinary Album), like Charles Gerhardt's RCA issue of The Sea Hawkand noticing that without the room reflections the RCA sonics are much more lucid. Nonetheless, the Delos VR process is not so distracting as others I have heard and lends an air of realism to the proceedings often completely lacking in other recordings. Then, too, the surround effects seem less obvious for some reason in the Symphony, perhaps more subtly employed.

In the end, this is a good, innovative issue and deserves a wide audience with its unique music and sound. JJP To listen to a brief excerpt from this album, click below:.

Labels: Korngold. Bach: Violin Concertos CD review. Also, sinfonias, overture, sonatas. Harmonia Mundi HMM The album's title, "Violin Concertos," is something of a misnomer. It's much more than that. In addition to the two familiar Violin Concertos --BWV andplus the Concerto for Two Violins --Harmonia Mundi have filled out two discs with everything else that might be considered a Bach violin concerto, including pieces written for other instruments and transcribed often by Bach himself for violin.

Bach like many composers of his time was big on appropriating at least parts of his own earlier work for later compositions, so it's sometimes hard to categorize properly some of his material. Anyway, the current two-disc set includes not only "violin concertos" but sinfonias, trio sonatas, overtures, and the like. All the performers play on period instruments, Ms. Faust's a Jacobus Stainer Now, here's the thing: How well you take to these interpretations may depend largely on what you expect from a period-instrument ensemble.

In the past few decades we have come to figure on some excessively quick tempos and highly expressive styles, the historically informed crowd insisting this is how the music was played back in the day. But Ms. Faust and company may not have heard the news, because while most of it can be exhilarating, they can also play much of this music in a fairly sensitive, even conservative manner.

The slower parts aren't dull or routine by any means, but they are often reserved and refined. If you like your Bach played both sprightly and elegantly, these are for you.

The opening concerto is a good example of what I meant previously by everything not being exactly what it seems.

The Concerto for Violin BWV R is usually considered a harpsichord concerto, but educated conjecture suggests it may actually be a lost violin concerto.

So that's the way Ms. Faust and company play it, with a violin soloist. I'm not sure if that was her intent, but it works well in any case. Isabelle Faust And so it goes. The playing is precise but never aggressive, the manner often varying between strikingly invigorating and finely reserved.

Contrasts and stresses are kept to an appropriate minimum, though not passively so. Indeed, when occasion arises, the tempos and variations are well up to the task. There's nothing stuffy about these performances, even if they're not among the most imaginative you may have heard. All of which may please a lot of dedicated Bach fans who have become tired of hearing Bach's music being twisted this way and that. If there was something I didn't care for, however, it was the packaging information.

The outside of the three-panel Digipak lists no track info whatsoever. Inside the fold-out, we get a table of contents but without any track numbers, movement breakdowns, or timings. To find out anything specific about the program, you have to go into the booklet itself. And if you want to find more about each selection, you have to go to the part of the booklet in your language--German, French, or English--and then, well, hope to run into whatever you're looking for because instead of the notes referring to each selection as it appears chronologically in the program, the notes seem to discuss items randomly.

No big deal, but a trifle annoying. On the brighter side, the two-disc set contains almost two-and-a-half hours of music for the price of a single disc. So it does represent a good value for the money. And it's very well played and recorded. The first most noticeable thing about the sound is its lifelike characteristics. It has air and space, a realistic ambience, a good sense of depth, and mostly an impressively natural resonant bloom.

I say "mostly" because a couple of selections are perhaps a bit too reverberant. The miking distance is pleasantly moderate, not so close up as many of today's recordings seem to be. Dynamics, too, appear well judged, though with slightly muted impact in some instances, and definition is good without being sharp or bright. It's some of the most pleasing sound I've come across in Baroque music and should satisfy the even the most fastidious listener.
