Artist: Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, John Storgårds Title: Per Nørgård: Symphonies 4 & 5 Year Of Release: 2016 Label: Dacapo Genre: Contemporary Classical Quality: FLAC (tracks+. Per Nørgård’smusic originates in an inextinguishable desire to explore the marvels of the world and the powers of music. His eight symphonies stand as milestones, composed through six decades, each with its own unique musical world. This recording by the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestraand conductor John Storgårdspresents two of Nørgård’smost dramatic works; the chaotic and troubled Symphony No. 4inspired by the schizophrenic Swiss artist Adolf Wölfli, and the fearless Symphony No. 5, in which the composer seems to embrace violent forces of nature.
Per Nørgård: Symphonies Nos. 4 & 5. 2016. This release is part of a thus-far-excellent Dacapo-Naxos series devoted to the symphonies of Danish composer Per Nørgård, with conductor John Storgårds leading the Oslo Philharmonic. Nørgård had the elderly Jean Sibelius as a mentor in the 1950s, and his music includes Sibelius' fascination with the Nordic landscape and his orientation toward vast, detailed orchestral canvases. Here, another Sibelian trait is added: a grim interiority that is especially gripping when combined with music that evokes the forces of nature.
Here are two releases, each charting a sea change in the vision of a most singular artist. One must also applaud the sheer virtuosity brought to bear by an orchestra of the calibre of the BBC Philharmonic. Elsewhere, these almost electric interpretations bring Turina’s Andalusia to life, be it in La procesión del Rocio, Danzas gitanas or the more intimate sound world of Rapsodia sinfónica for piano and string orchestra wherein Martin Roscoe proves an ideal soloist. Storgårds’ Fourth is excellent: he plumbs the depths of this most enigmatic of symphonies masterfully: only Karajan sees more in this morose Stygian drama. The Fifth sees impressive tempi integration in the first movement but the last lacks the great schwung Karajan brings to it. The Sixth also seems rushed.
Only 2 left in stock (more on the way). Last week, the New York Philharmonic announced that Danish composer Per Nørgård would be the latest recipient of the Marie-Josée Kravis Prize for New Music. New Yorkers should be relieved: the award prompted the observation that our Philharmonic had never actually performed any of Nørgård's work before. While the world premiere is worth hearing because Storgårds brings out some finer details in a few parts, I prefer Oramo and the Vienna Philharmonic not just for the more confident performance, but for the excellent sound on this disc, both in the stereo layer and the SACD . surround layer.
