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

7 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 558 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

Symphonie fantastique by Hector Berlioz( )

2 editions published in 1995 and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die unglückliche Liebe von Hector Berlioz zu einer Schauspielerin führte in nur 2 Monaten 1830 zur Komposition seiner Symphony fantastique. Sie gehört inzwischen zu den wohl populärsten Werken der klassischen Musik. Als "musikalisches Drama" mit dem Untertitel Episoden aus dem Leben eines Künstlers konzipiert, folgt das 5-sätzige Werk einem szenischen Programm, das bei der Uraufführung als Text an das Publikum verteilt wurde. Mit dieser revolutionären Neuorientierung der Form schuf Berlioz die Grundlage für das Genre der sinfonischen Dichtung, die im Lauf des 19. Jahrhunderts viele Meisterwerke hervorbrachte. Gekoppelt ist die Fantastische Sinfonie mit der viel gespielten, temperamentvollen Ouvertüre Römischer Karneval aus der Oper Benvenuto Cellini. Die Fantastische Sinfonie ist unverzichtbar für alle Bibliotheken, diese Interpretation von Jos van Immerseel und dem Ensemble Anima Eterna Brugge auf historischen Instrumenten ziert jeden Bestand
