2.0 étoiles sur 5 This is pretty thin gruel 10 juin 2011
Par G.D. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
I am a big fan of lush, dramatic late romanticism, but this strangely programmed disc contains too much barrel-scraping even for me. The rationale behind the program is flimsy at best; the music was written at approximately the same time, and Harris and Wagner were apparently friends - we get two melodramas by Schillings, one early symphonic poem by Siegfried Wagner, and two works by an English composer, Clement Harris (1871-1897), who died tragically young. But the music has little in common, thematically or stylistically or even with respect to genre.

I have enjoyed the installments in CPO's series of the music of Max Schillings. One of those discs included his long melodrama (narrator and orchestra) Hexenlied, a modestly interesting though overlong piece. The two melodramas here date from 1900 (Kassandra was orchestrated by Konrad Bach) and constitute pretty thin gruel. The best thing that can be said about them is that Schiller's poems are good, and they are decently narrated by Martin Neubauer. The music, on the other hand, is devoid of redeeming features; trite, boring and hollow, empty of ideas and unimaginative, annoyingly getting in the way of the poems.

Siegfried Wagner wrote some rather fine operas (do check out Sonnenflammen). The ambitious tone poem Sehnsucht seems, however, to retain a toehold in the repertoire as well (there are at least three available recordings). That does the composer no favors, for this is a rather uninspired, banal, overlong work (though it is clearly the best work on the disc). If you absolutely need a copy, try Werner Andreas Albert on CPO, but you don't really need a copy of this dull, clumsily organized and banally scored blob.

Clement Harris died fighting in the Greco-Turkish war before reaching compositional maturity. Truth to be told, however, he doesn't strike one as one of music history's might-have-beens; the two works given here don't reveal the faintest trace of talent. The symphonic poem Paradise Lost is thoroughly episodic (suggesting that Harris had no clue about that pesky form thing) and unfocused. The musical language is eclectic, but the lack of an original voice is the least of the problems - the lack of a single decent musical idea, and the helpless lack of ability to orchestrate his music are far more serious worries. Tenth-rate, completely amateurish hack music is a not too harsh judgment. The Festival March is absolutely horrible. Performances are nothing to write home about. They are appropriately dramatic, but obviously under-rehearsed and unrefined. The sound is dry and hollow. In sum, then, this one is strictly for the specialist.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 composers names are not adequately associated with the tracks 17 décembre 2013

I've never seen such a poor listing on a cd cover. It is not immediately apparent which composer is associated with the various tracks. Track 2, for example. Someone dropped the ball on this one. The last track is not identified with any composer's name.
