The Dresden Staatskapelle has a very special tradition of performing Ludwig van Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. It performed the then still highly controversial work for the first time in August 1838 under the baton of Johann Gottlieb Reissiger.

Auf ihrem neuesten Album hat das sowohl national als auch international mit Preisen ausgezeichnete Klavierduo Yaara Tal und Andreas Groethuysen die Slawischen Tänze op. 46 und 72 von Dvorák eingespielt. Sie gehören zu den bekanntesten Kompositionen des tschechischen Komponisten und wurden im Original tatsächlich für Klavier zu vier Händen geschrieben. Erst kurze Zeit später entstand die heute berühmte Bearbeitung für Orchester. Dvorák war mit seinen Slawischen Tänzen op. 46, die er nach dem Vorbild der Ungarischen Tänze seines Förderers und Freundes Johannes Brahms konzipiert hatte, der langersehnte Durchbruch auch jenseits der Grenzen seiner Heimat gelungen. Der primär kunstmusikalische Charakter der Slawischen Tänze zeigt sich aber besonders in eben dieser originalen vierhändigen Klavierfassung, was auch die Interpretation des Klavierduos Tal & Groethuysen hervorragend zu Gehör bringt.

Composed in 1902, this purely instrumental work followed upon three symphonies that had all included vocal parts. This and the opening trumpet motif, an allusion to the rhythm that begins Beethoven's Fifth have been interpreted as Mahler's return to a more conventional idea of the symphonic genre

Century rolls ; Lollapalooza ; Slonimsky's earbox by John Adams( Recording )

7 editions published in 2000 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of all the so-called minimalists working today, John Adams is the only one with any good ideas left. Witness this delightful release. The key to Adams's creativity is that he isn't bound by theoretical constraints on what "minimalism" should be. Century Rolls (1995) is a commission by Emanuel Ax, and it was inspired by the composer's listening to a CD recording of an ancient player piano. Century Rolls doesn't duplicate that sound, but it is, instead, an unexpected romp across new rhythmic territory. As for Mr. Ax, he comports himself very well, particularly in the difficult first Movement, which requires deft coordination of all forces involved. The brief Lollapalooza (1995) is more recognizably minimalist but with considerable orchestral color and shifting moods. And Slominsky's Earbox (1996) is a powerfully full-orchestra-driven canter. All this is to say that the CD is one of the best releases of Adams's career, and it will appeal to a very wide audience. --Paul Cook
