Yup, it's a fantastic Eroica Fergus. He does a fine job across the board but his 3rd may be the best of the lot.

I am looking forward to hearing the entire cycle I must admit. I have not come across a poor review of it yet.

Daugherty: Fire & Blood; MotorCity Triptych; Raise the Roof
Detroit Symphony Orchestra
Neeme Järvi, cond.
NAXOS

Michael Daugherty; he of the Metropolis Symphony, UFO, Philadelphia Stories, and myriad other works inspired by modern American life and pop culture; is currently Professor of Composition at the University of Michigan School of Music. Here are three works commissioned and premiered by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra during Daugherty's four years as Composer-in-Residence from 1999 to 2003 -- recorded in live performance with nary a hint of audience noise till each work's concluding applause. Inspirations range from Detroit's magnificent Diego Rivera murals and the artist's heritage, politics, and illness-stricken wife to Rosa Parks and the Motown sound. The composer writes at length of his Motor City muses, but I'd like to leave allusions to the movement titles and merely describe the music and its imparted emotional impressions.

Volcano, the first movement of Fire and Blood for violin and orchestra, displays the scissoring, angular violin attacks heard elsewhere in Daugherty's oeuvre, here brought to us by committed soloist Ida Kavafian, punctuated by colorful orchestral explosions redolent of Mexico with perhaps an accidental tinge of Appalachia. Featured is an interlude of violent violin underlain by marimba, xylophone, and a plethora of percussion. In River Rouge, the second movement, Kavafian moves from abject screaming to somber contemplation. Mexican trumpets are taken up by the solo violin in a mournful and purposely nostalgic expression. In the finale titled Assembly Line, Kavafian digs into her strings while the orchestra bangs, slaps, soars, and sizzles in what's probably the work's closest approximation to the listener's initial expectations; i.e., the kind of relentless rhythmic raucousness of industry on parade painted notoriously by Prokofiev in his Symphony No. 2, but here hewing much closer to the personal amidst the collective rather than the collective per se.

MotorCity Triptych (triptych a la the Auto Club rather than any Renaissance art form) begins with Motown Mondays. Here is that marvelous R&B that smacks of orchestral Smokey Robinson - that's until things turn dramatic. We're suddenly thrust into a combination of a Midwest morning followed by explosive swashes of Brando and Bernstein's waterfront -- stirring stuff! A direct quote of Copland's opening tympani of Fanfare for the Common Man introduces Pedal-to-the-Metal with that trumpet again interceding from south of the border. Violent orchestral eruptions are interrupted by a screaming siren. The trumpet displays angst and anger before being assuaged by a seemingly reluctant acceptance...the city moves on! Rosa Parks Boulevard, the finale, is a soulful tour de force for the DSO trombones -- alternatingly mournful, tensely dramatic, delicately drunken, but always powerfully expressive. The unforgettable trombone theme pervades a colorful and varied orchestral workout.

Raise the Roof is for tympani and orchestra. While it gives those kettles a chance to shine, it's otherwise stylistically similar to what we've heard up to this point replete with prominent brass, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, and even a piano. As they've done on previous forays into this pseudo-classical cum jazz idiom, Järvi and the DSO eat it up! By the way, were you one of those who enjoyed drum solos?

I do have that Ormandy set of the Shostakovich 4 and 10 and agree it's very good.
But I went with the Shostakovich 11th last night, with Kondrashin conducting the Moscow Philharmonic.

If you would like another early German romantic violin concerto besides Beethoven´s and Mendelssohn´s, try Ferdinand Ries´ excellent Violin Concerto. Granted that he was no Beethoven, he was a very able and likeable composer. The Concerto for 2 horns is great fun. A very rewarding recording very well played, the Violin Concerto is played by baroque virtuoso Anton Steck who can do well in Romantic repertoire on this evidence.

Like Jared, today I´m in the company of Luba Orgonasova and Nikolaus Harnoncourt. For some reason this excellent recording of Dvorak´s Stabat Mater was deleted as soon as it was released. I guess contractual problems with one of the singers (I heard it was the bass, but don´t know for sure). Still, it´s a magnificent live performance. The chorus and orchestra from the Bavarian Radio are peerless, and with Luba Orgonasova as soprano soloist it´s a must-have.

Sorry for the delay in replying :oops:

Although I liked the recording, and am glad to hear/own it, it is probably one of the weakest versions I have in my collection...think I have been spoilt by the Causse/Gardiner recording which I think is thrilling and I adore it :D :lol:
