Albert Roussel / Orchestre De Paris, Christoph Eschenbach - Symphony No. 2, Bacchus et Ariane mp3 album
One of the greatest musical discoveries I've made in years," is how Christoph Eschenbach describes Albert Roussel's rarely played Second Symphony. Composed between 1919 and 1921, it's generally reckoned to form Roussel's despairing response to the first world war, though much of the thematic material derives from an earlier, discarded opera. Critics considered it formless: it's far from that, though its slithery harmonies and a pervasive sense of music sluggishly struggling to constitute itself out of chaos occasionally make for difficult listening.
Roussel's ballet Bacchus et Ariane includes a gripping blend of both. The composer extracted the best of his ballet music into two suites, both of which are featured on this disc. Intellectually stimulating and emotionally stirring, Christoph Eschenbach and the Paris Orchestra navigate Roussel's portrayal of this lonely mythical tale with great beauty and often gut-wrenching emotion. The First Suite, although somewhat less popular and recorded than its twin, features outstanding performances in its numerous chamber music-like passages by a number of the Paris Orchestra musicians. Roussel is perhaps better known for his Symphony No. 3, one of the famous 50th anniversary Boston Symphony Orchestra commissions of conductor Sergey Koussevitsky. The Second Symphony, more lyrical than Bacchus, is as intensely musical as it is varied.
Offer, Roussel - Symphony No. 2. Orchestre de Paris, Christoph Eschenbach. BBC Music Magazine, July 2006, Mor. elease Date: 8th May 2006. The Orchestre de Paris is in superlative form, both in the Symphony and the ballet Bacchus et Ariane, providing a marvellous lesson in nuanced gallic colours, all captured in fine sound. the symphony - Roussel's longest - is also the most complex and elusive. The juxtaposition with the two Bacchus et Ariane concert suites (much more enjoyable than the Daphnis ones) makes for a rich programme, all brilliantly played by the Orchestre de Paris.
The Orchestre de Paris found itself in an unusual situation in 1989, when its performance of Ravel's Boléro became a hit on the Dutch pop chart. The recording, made in 1982 under the direction of Daniel Barenboim, was released as a CD-single to coincide with the success of the song "No more boleros" by the Dutch pop singer Gerard Joling, which included parts of the Ravel work.
