Aged only 17, Schubert conducted his first complete Mass setting, in F major, D. 105, in September 1814, gaining the approval of his former teacher Antonio Salieri.

An amazingly accomplished work for so young a composer, it follows Classical precedents, while already giving glimpses of Schubert's special lyrical gifts. It also makes effective use, particularly in the forward-looking Sanctus, of the vocal soloists, choir and an orchestra rich in wind and brass including three trombones.

The Mass in B flat major, D. 324, composed the following year and like its predecessor scaled for liturgical performance, similarly combines beauty with splendour.

Schubert's Masses Nos. 2, 4 and 6 are available on 8570864 and 8570381.

Whatever the case, it was extremely popular during the 18th and early 19th centuries, and was performed by Simon Mayr who copied the score around 1802.

Mayr's own festive Te Deum is believed to have been written for Napoleon's coronation as King of Italy in Milan Cathedral on 26th May, 1805.

Mayr's biographer Girolamo Calvi praised this effective work in the highest terms, declaring it a masterpiece.

'Never Far Away' features four orchestral pieces by Chinese composer Bright Sheng, Shanghai Overture, the short ballet The Nightingale and the Rose, and Tibetan Love Song and Swing. The title piece, Never Far Away is a wonderful harp concerto that stretches the instrument's capabilities to the limit. It was commissioned and is performed by the pre-eminent soloist Yolanda Kondonassis.

Hailed by The New York Times for her “powerful playing and musicianly energy,” Yolanda Kondonassis is considered one of the world's foremost harpists. She made her solo debut at age 18 with The New York Philharmonic and has since appeared as guest artist with countless orchestras around the world. This disc marks her fifteenth on the Telarc label.

Bright Sheng has been a trendsetter in the world of composition. In 2001, he was selected to receive the MacArthur Foundation's prestigious “Genius Award.” The award called Sheng “an innovative composer who merges diverse musical customs in works that transcend conventional aesthetic boundaries. He bridges East and West, lyrical and dissonant styles, and historical and contemporary themes to create elegant compositions with a distinctive signature.

A colleague of Mendelssohn, the Schumanns and Brahms, the virtuoso violinist Joseph Joachim was himself a composer of note.

His exuberant single-movement Opus 3 Violin Concerto from around 1851 was dedicated to Liszt, from whom he subsequently distanced himself. It is a tour de force by a highly gifted twenty year old.

The Opus 11 Violin Concerto followed six years later, its Classical three movements frequently coloured by Hungarian inflections, most strikingly in the 'gypsy finale' which calls for astonishing technical control, immense stamina and fiery abandon from the soloist.

Suyoen Kim is the Winner of the 2006 Hannover International Violin Competition. “Suyoen Kim plays with the technical brillance and musical maturity that have already brought her, at the age of 18, to the attention of conductors like Kurt Mazur and Seiji Ozawa.” The Strad

One of the leading members of the Munich School, most famously represented by Richard Strauss, Ludwig Thuille was a prolific composer whose Sextet today remains the best known of his many chamber works.

Influenced by Rheinberger, Liszt and Wagner, Thuille's Sextet also recalls Brahms's deft mastery, particularly with regard to his arching melodies, scrupulous handling of instrumental textures and technical skill.

His second Piano Quintet, likewise notable for its formal mastery and dramatic contrasts, boasts many passages of thrilling intensity, counterpoint and surging lyricism.

This third disc in Naxos's Martucci Edition, comprising the complete orchestral works, continues with the First Piano Concerto which, while indebted to Chopin and Mendelssohn and prefiguring Rachmaninov, nonetheless has its own expressive immediacy.

By turns sensuous and serene, nostalgic and intensely yearning, The Song of Remembrance is a rare example of a song cycle for voice and orchestra composed in nineteenth-century Italy.

Volumes 1 and 2 of the Naxos Martucci Edition are available on 8570929 and 8570930.

2009 marks the centenary of the death of Giuseppe Martucci.

“In recent years it has been an enormous thrill hearing my music being performed by The Dmitri Ensemble. This excellent, young ensemble brings a breath of fresh air to music making in this country, and are fortunate to have in their director Graham Ross one of the most exciting new musicians to appear on the radar.” James MacMillan

Naxos is delighted to mark James Macmillan's 50th birthday with this disc on Naxos, bringing together a number of different choral works from 1993 to 2005.

This disc contains two world première recordings and is produced by John Rutter , who spoke of the Dmitri Ensemble in the following terms : “They are the stars of the future.”

The fourteen works for piano and orchestra of Ferdinand Ries stand alongside those of Hummel as among the most important of their kind from the early decades of the 19th century.

Intensely lyrical and yet displaying at times a rugged Beethovenian grandeur, Ries's concertos are works of impressive musical stature.

The three works featured on this recording are all associated with Ries's English period: the Abschieds-Concert von England, composed to mark his retirement from the London stage; the brilliant Grand Variations on 'Rule Britannia', composed at Hastings in 1817, and the enchanting Introduction et Variations Brillantes, Op. 170 which takes as its theme Soldier, soldier, will you marry me?

Leopold Stokowski arranged nearly 40 works from Bach's catalogue for the modern symphony orchestra, and José Serebrier's second volume of Bach-Stokowski Transcriptions is as colourful and wide-ranging as the first (8557883).

In response to popular and critical demand the present selection begins with the most famous Bach orchestration of all, the celebrated Toccata and Fugue in D minor. This reached its widest public in Walt Disney's Fantasia and here introduces a programme of sumptuous arrangements, including other music from the pre- and post- baroque periods.

While children's voices have been heard in church music for centuries, music specifically composed for young choristers is a relatively recent, and most welcome, development.

As the attractive and diverse music by the fourteen composers represented on this delightful recording shows, children's choirs now have a wealth of outstanding repertoire to delight, challenge and initiate them into the world of music.

The Grammy award-winning New London Children's Choir, founded by Ron Corp in 1991, has been described by the Financial Times as “excellent” and by The Independent as “terrific.”

They have performed in the UK, Europe and North America to critical acclaim and boast an impressive discography, including two recordings of music by Britten for Naxos (8553183 and 8557203).

Now enjoying cult status since her 're-discovery' twenty five years ago, Hildegard von Bingen, the tenth child of an aristocratic family, entered a convent at the age of eight and spent the remainder of her eighty years as a nun as well as a mystic, the latter half as abbess of her own convent. Hildegard's great musico-poetic collection was completed around the year 1150. Symphonia armonie celestium revelationum (Symphony of the Harmony of Heavenly Revelations) is a collection of 77 songs and one music drama. The subjects of these songs are an idiosyncratic collection of individuals and groups - the pieces included on this recording are variously addressed to the Creator, the Redeemer, the Blessed Virgin Mary, St John the Evangelist, Apostles, Confessors, and Martyrs.
