Editorial Reviews

George Chadwick (1854-1931) was a leading American composer of his day. On this Dutton Epoch series recording, Boston Pops conductor Keith Lockhart leads the BBC Concert Orchestra in a selection of world premiere recordings, ranging from the delightful, affirmative Pastoral Prelude written when Chadwick was 36, to the gorgeous, impressionistic symphonic poem Cleopatra of 1904 with its ''lush and amorous'' tune for Cleopatra and ''big clashing battle scene.'' Also included are the Sinfonietta in D major of 1904 (effectively the composer's fifth symphony) and the Shelley-inspired 'elegiac overture' Adonais of 1899. This is immediately approachable and lyrical music, containing some of Chadwick's most memorable melodies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic_Boston_Bob October 5, 2012
By BobH
Format:Audio CD
Lost gems come to light. Keith Lockhart has unearthed some delightful pieces of George Chadwick from the New England Conservatory archives. A wonderful pleasure to the ear and for the mind. These pieces haven't been heard, in some cases for decades. Many have never been recorded. Maestro Lockhart brings these peices to light as the George Chadwick legacy deserves. This collection will do a great deal to bring Chadwick's music into our homes and concert halls again. If you are looking for some wonderful music and are willing to hear some of the best England and New England has to offer [Chadwick, Lockhart & BBC Concert Orchestra] please investigate this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Four Chadwick orchestral works, 3 in recording premieres December 28, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
George Chadwick was called "the dean of American composers" at his death in 1931, though his most important works were composed between the early 1880s and the end of the First World War. He was a master of the orchestra, so it is always good to hear major works in that genre that have never been recorded before. "Adonais" was a work that Chadwick held in high regard, though its somber character (as a memorial tribute to a pianist friend who died young), it is not likely to receive as many performances as the ebullient Symphonic Sketches or Tam O' Shanter, and therefore it is especially good to have this fine performance available. "Cleopatra" was the first work Chadwick composed with the "modern" orchestra of a Richard Strauss, and his hand at rich and varied orchestral color is especially clear in this tone poem. "A Pastoral Prelude" is a lighter score suggesting the freshness of the New England landscape on a morning in late spring. The one piece previously recorded is the Sinfonietta in D (here given its first digital recording). Keith Lockhart lives in Chadwick's city of Boston; the BBC Concert Orchestra has probably never played any of his music before, but they bring it off very effectively.
