Roslavets ‎– BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Ilan Volkov - Chamber Symphony, In The Hours Of The New Moon download album

This Chamber Symphony remained undiscovered and unpublished until 2005; however, it is a major addition to twentieth century Russian orchestral literature. The performance by the BBC Scottish under the direction of young Russian conductor Ilan Volkov is just about perfect - it is crisp, dynamic, and full of fire, but does not run roughshod over Roslavets' more delicate passages.

Conductor – Ilan Volkov. Orchestra – BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. First Recording of "Chamber Symphony". Recorded in Caird Hall, Dundee, on 4 and 5 June 2004 (In the Hours of the New Mood) and BBC Scotland Studio 1, Glasgow on 18 and 19 December 2005 (Chamber Symphony).

The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1935 by composer and conductor Ian Whyte. At the time, it was the first full-time orchestral ensemble in Scotland; it has now become one of five full-time BBC orchestras and one of Britain's leading orchestras. At its founding, it was a small ensemble principally used for broadcasting, but Whyte struggled to establish it as a truly Scottish ensemble dedicated to promoting music by Scottish composers. The orchestra has won two Gramophone Awards in the contemporary music category. For Hyperion, the group has released several world-premiere recordings of Scottish romantic music, and for BIS it has embarked on a cycle of the complete symphonies of Nielsen. The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra performs each year at the BBC Proms in London, as well as at the festivals of Edinburgh, Cheltenham, Huddersfield, and Bath.

Orchestra: BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Conductor: Ilan Volkov. The real gem on this CD is the symphonic poem: In the Hours of The New Moon. Written from about 1910-1913, here we see Roslavets at the heels of the leading explorers of the day: Debussy, Schoenberg, Scriabin. In fact this piece is like a very interesting synthesis of the styles of these 3 composers. That is not to say it is devoid of any originality, but one can easily detect these influences, and also it was a quasi-student piece.

The Chamber Symphony of 1935 receives it premiere recording here. Roslavets’ most important symphonic work, it is scored for only 18 players. The four-movement work is quite a contrast to the earlier impressionistic Nw Moon. Although Roslavets developed a harmonic technique somewhat like Schoenberg’s 12-Tone system – using synthetic chords – it wasn’t used in the Symphony. However, the work is extremely chromatic and the various themes which return in most of the movements are closely related to one another in a sort of anxiety-prone version of Franck’s cyclical construction
