A stunningly beautiful musical gem

Jonathan Darlington together with the Duisburg Philharmonics has already shown in many productions at ACOUSENCE how he is capable of enriching his interpretations in the special atmosphere of playing in front of an audience with unique musical moments. With Anna Malikova, now a soloist directly speaking the same musical language meets this constellation, who at the same time with ease bests the demands of Brahms’ Second Piano Concerto - the perfect foundation for a recording of this magnificent piece with the dimension of a symphony and a complex solo part, heavily intertwined with the orchestra. The result is a striking recording, flowing exquisitely relaxed, yet played powerfully, with a firm grasp of the sensibility of the music and the closeness of the concert performance. Brahms’ big piano concerto in four movements - completely in the spirit of our philosophy and especially of the LIVING CONCERT SERIES.

Duisburger Philharmoniker (Duisburg Philharmonic Orchestra)
Jonathan Darlington

 

Jonathan Darlington interprets the two key works of the twentieth century in an enthralling live recording

The Duisburg Philharmonics on this album present two key works of the twentieth century united - and Jonathan Darlington once again creates a most exciting live recording with a dense atmosphere, which promises over one hour of stirring "concert experience".

Even though less than a decade separates the premieres of Claude Debussy’s orchestral work in three parts "La Mer" and Igor Stravinsky’s "Le Sacre du Printemps", these two works could hardly be any more different. While Stravinsky’s "Le Sacre du Printemps", following the clear specifications of a ballet scenario, appears almost unsettling with its elementary rhythms and powerful orchestral colours, "La Mer" appears much more "in flow" - it is inspired by the less visually predetermined perceptions, which the sea and nature brought forth in Debussy.
