Sir Andrew Davis is among the most distinguished interpreters of British music today and here turns to the works of Sir Arnold Bax. With the inclusion of the Phantasy for Viola and Orchestra, this album marks the completion of Chandos’s long project to record Bax’s complete orchestral music over time. Born in 1883 into a wealthy family in London, Arnold Bax began a love affair with Ireland as a young man. He moved there in 1911 and his Four Orchestral Pieces from 1912 – 13 are deeply influenced by the landscape of the countryside near his Dublin home. The first three are better known in revised versions, from 1928, as Three Pieces for Small Orchestra. Here ‘The Dance of Wild Irravel’ joins the other three movements for the premiere recording of the four Pieces as Bax originally conceived and orchestrated them.

Robert Volkmann had a distinguished musical career, but even within his own lifetime his peers seem to have viewed him with respect as a worthy composer rather than one of any originality. That was probably a fair judgement and his work passed out of the concert halls and into the history books after his death. This double CD set from CPO therefore provides the modern day listener with a useful conspectus of his orchestral writing.

It is not difficult to include Juan Crisóstomo de Arriaga's entire orchestral output on CD, such as it is. The "Spanish Mozart" produced only three overtures and a symphony before his premature death at age 19. Jordi Savall produced a great disc of the symphony, but included only two of the three overtures, for Astrée with Le Concert des Nations and La Capella Reial de Catalunya in 1995. Fuga Libera's Juan Crisóstomo de Arriaga: Música para Orquestra contains all three overtures in addition to the symphony, and while the performances don't have quite the mischievous sparkle of Savall's, Paul Dombrecht and the Belgian period-instrument orchestra achieve something quite different with Arriaga's music here.

Famous conductor and musician, Claudio Abbado was internationally known for serving up a repertoire of music from the poetry of Holderlin, the legend of Faust or works that depict German drama. He conducted several orchestras worldwide and received numerous awards for his masterful genius. His works include Mendelsshon's Midsummer Night's Dream and Robert Schumann's Piano Concerto.
