Marco Polo released seven volumes in their series of orchestral works by Igor Markevitch, and these are currently being re-released on Naxos. The first volume in the Naxos series, however, contains the two works that got away from the original Marco Polo cycle, and this disc is as such essential to anyone who followed the original series. Now, Igor Markevitch's fame is still due to his work as a conductor - indeed as one of the most remarkable conductors in the twentieth century. But these releases of his orchestral music, should - if there is any justice - fill out that picture significantly. Indeed, I don't think I am exaggerating when claiming that this series reveals him as one of the most remarkable composers of the twentieth century as well. Markevitch is not merely a conductor who also composed (in the derivative but usually well-crafted manner typical of most conductor-composers); Markevitch's music is highly original, spectacularly enjoyable, and always fresh and bold. Indeed, Markevitch is perhaps the most convincing representative of Russian futurism (Prokofiev's forays into the genre perhaps excepted); even so, I readily admit that the stylistic range is rather limited, and one can perhaps understand why he gave up composing so early instead of continuing to write the same pieces over and over (despite admiration from the likes of Britten, Stravinsky, Milhaud and Bartok). Still, we should be truly grateful for having this remarkable body of music, and also be grateful to the Arnhem Philharmonic, Christopher Lyndon-Gee and Marco Polo/Naxos for making it available in more than acceptable - often superb - performances.Read more ›
