The last (?), or at least one of the only, film score(s) by Bernard Herrmann not previously released on record or CD.  From the 1972 British film based on an Agatha Christie novel.  New digital recording.


I've never heard a note of Herrmann I didn't love.  Thanks for telling us about this one.

Aldilà Records is a Munich based label focussing on the presentation of great musicians of past and present times as well as on promoting unsung masterworks. It is led by Christoph Schlüren, conductor, music pedagogue, and one of Germany's most distinguished writers on music.

The programmes of Aldilà's CDs regularly show how the different aspects, on which the label focusses, come together. You will often find CDs dedicated to special performers, on which unsung works are presented along with well known pieces to show how good they can stand together with each other in terms of quality. Most CDs contain works of different composers, often from different times, with a special idea in the background on which the programme is built. There is, for example, a double CD by Hugo Schuler, an Argentinian pianist with a special talent for polyphonic music. Here Bach's Goldberg Variations and three Preludes and Fugues from the Well Tempered Clavier are combined with pieces of contrapuntal art from different times: a Fantasia by Froberger, and works by Heinrich Kaminski and Reinhard Schwarz-Schilling.

One of the next CDs, the publication of which is scheduled for February, will deal with the genre of String Trio. The Trio Montserrat (Joel Bardolet, Violin; Miquel Córdoba, Viola; Bruno Hurtado, Cello) will play Mozart's famous Divertimento, and then follow the path into the 20th century. The next piece is Paul Büttner's Trio Sonata from the 1920s, a work in seven short movements, which shows this great late romantic symphonist as a master of canonic writing in the tradition of his teacher Felix Draeseke. The programme is finished by Trios of Heinz Schubert and Reinhard Schwarz-Schilling, both belongig to the circle of Heinrich Kaminski. Like their mentor, both were contrapuntists by heart, heavily influenced by Bach's art, and wrote music of impassioned introvert solemnity. Schubert's Trio Sonata dates from the 1930s, it is written in three movements, containing a chorale-passacaglia and ending in a highly active fugue. Schwarz-Schilling's Trio is one of this composer's last pieces, written in the 1980s. It is a rather quiet work in two very concentrated movements.

The Youtube channel of Aldilà Records contains videos from the rehearsal sessions for this new CD, in which some movements of the pieces can be heard in full. You can get vivid impressions, too, of the Trio Montserrat's formidable musicianship and Christoph Schlüren's profound work as a chamber music coach (sessions were made in English language):

Dick van Gasteren is the founder-conductor of the Ciconia Consort, a chamber orchestra based in The Hague since 2012. To mark 400 years since the Pilgrim Fathers left the Netherlands for America, he devised this programme of music from the first half of the 20th century, reflecting the particular character of New World music as well as its roots in European romanticism. The result is a collection unique on album, in beautifully sprung new recordings full of vitality and sympathy. Arthur Foote (1853-1937) numbered among the first generation of classical composers to be educated primarily in the US, and in the arching phrases, transparent textures and rich harmonies of his E major can be heard the Romantic heritage of Brahms and Wagner which exercised a dominant influence over American conservatoires in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, before pioneers such as Ives and Antheil loosed the cultural bonds between the two continents. The Hymn is the second of A Set of Three Short Pieces for String Orchestra written by Ives in 1904: way ahead of its time, we might now think (and composed three years before Footes Suite), in its probing harmony which ventures deep into and even beyond the expressionist world of Arnold Schoenberg, while retaining a solemn, devotional quality in the slow-moving textures and the passionate viola melody at its heart. In contrast to the darkness and uncertainty of Ivess Hymn, the Shaker music quoted by Aaron Copland in Appalachian Spring radiates quiet content and security. The Ciconia Consort are joined here by Dutch colleagues to present the final version of Coplands ballet, originally written in 1944 to a commission by Martha Graham for a piece with a distinctively American theme.
