Shibe gives works by Ravel, Satie, and de Falla elegantly idiomatic readings. Listeners will be grateful to have the Catalan Mompu’s ever delicate Canços i dansas 6 and 10, as well as his lively Suite Compostelana to enjoy as lovingly played here.

Composer: Richard Strauss
Conductor: Vladimir Jurowski

Jurowski succeeds really well in combining the visual of the score as well as its intellectual content, which makes the emotional moods tangible. The atmospheric density and varied musical substance that prevail here are not found in many other recordings.

L’isola is a serious opera about love, loss and misunderstanding with a happy ending, set on an exotic deserted island. What is special about this opera is that Haydn chose orchestral accompaniment for the entire work, with colorful and dramatic accompagnato recitatives.
