The rebirth of Xavier Montsalvatge

Posted by Soledad Sánchez Bueno on February 2, 2012  |  Leave a comment

This year marks the centenary of the birth of one of the most esteemed composers of our editorial house, the prolific Xavier Montsalvatge.

Numerous events will be performed during 2012 to honor his career and work.

TRITÓ joins tribute with a double-disc reissue released by our label in 2002. It brings together the masterpieces of the composer’s catalog (not the most performed): Sortilegis, Sinfonietta-Concerto, Metamorfosi de concert, Impromptu en el Generalife, Hommage à Manolo Hugué and the Concierto del Albayzín.

At that time, the album had been conceived not only as a tribute to the composer in his ninetieth year, but above all as a gift from a group of friends to the Maestro. It brought together many of the ideas that had emerged in conversations we had with Xavier Montsalvatge during his life.  Llorenç Caballero

This project would have been unthinkable without the presence of some of the great musicians of our time as Alicia de Larrocha, James Martin, Josep Colom and the Cadaqués Orchestra with Gianandrea Noseda as conductor.

Today our purpose is more ambitious, we want to help the music to appreciate and claim Montsalvatge from other countries, especially across the Atlantic.

Our conductors (I): Gianandrea Noseda

Posted by Cristina Martí on February 9, 2011  |  1 Comment

Starting today and for several weeks, we intend to present a series of posts that introduce the conductors who have recorded on the Tritó label. Our intention is to highlight the figure of these conductors, presenting a short biography and showing you the CDs available on our shop.

Gianandrea Noseda
Gianandrea Noseda

The first in this list is Gianandrea Noseda (Milan, 1964). He studied piano, composition and conducting in his hometown, and broadened his conducting studies under Donato Renzetti, Myung-Whun Chung and Valery Gergiev.
Gergiev invited him to be principal guest conductor at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg in 1997. In 1994 he won the Cadaqués Orchestra International Conducting Competition, and was later appointed Chief Conductor of the Cadaqués Orchestra, Principal Guest Conductor of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and Artistic Director of the Settimana Musicali di Stresa e del Lago Maggiore Festival in Italy. In 2007, Noseda became Music Director of the Teatro Regio di Torino.

In December 2001, he was appointed Principal Conductor of the BBC Philharmonic and took up the post in September 2002, renewing his contract in 2003. In 2005 he appeared on BBC radio in several projects, conducting Beethoven’s nine symphonies in Manchester. In October 2006, Noseda extended his contract for another two years and become Chief Conductor. It is expected that the 2010-2011 season will be his last at the helm of the BBC Philharmonic and that he will be named honorary director of the orchestra.
For further information, click here to view Noseda’s complete biography on the website of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.

Noseda conducts both symphonic and opera works. He has made several recordings with the BBC Philharmonic on the Chandos label, and nine CDs on the Tritó label while leading the Cadaqués Orchestra.

Gianandrea Noseda conducts Albéniz and Granados

Posted by Leticia Martin on April 24, 2009  |  Leave a comment

The recent tour of the Orquesta de Cadaqués, conducted by Gianandrea Noseda, with concerts in Girona (28 April) and Zaragoza (29 Abril) focussed on Spanish music. The repertoire consisted of pieces by Isaac Albéniz, to mark the centenary of his death, and Enrique Granados, and their works were interpreted using the orchestrations that Albert Guinovart was commissioned to write by Tritó Edicions.

The Orquesta de Cadaqués presented four pieces from the Suite Española (Cadiz, Asturias, Cordoba and Sevilla) by Albéniz as well as his Canciones Italianas, interpreted by Ainhoa Arteta. Las Tonadillas by Enrique Granados completed a first part in which the Orquesta de Cadaqués, Gianandrea Noseda and Ainhoa Arteta paid their own special homage to Spanish music.

The concert programme was completed by F. Schubert’s Symphony nº 4.

Gianandrea Noseda conducts Brahms

Posted by Leticia Martin on December 29, 2008  |  Leave a comment

The Cadaqués Orchestra conducted by Gianandrea Noseda presents the complete symphonies of Johannes Brahms in a double CD.

This symphonic cycle, despite being one of the least extensive, is one of the keys to understanding the transition from classicism to romanticism and orchestral music from the 19th century to the present day.

The ODC ensemble, smaller than usual for this repertoire, becomes a brilliant tool in the hands of the Italian conductor, who knows every nuance of the score and brings out the best in each of the musicians with a splendid labour that results in masterly performances.

All the symphonies were recorded at the Auditorio de Zaragoza after a tour of various Spanish cities.

The Orquesta de Cadaqués accepted the challenge of making the first recording of this complete set by a Spanish ensemble, with a magnificent result that is on a par with the key recordings of this repertoire. A recording that was an important undertaking in both its artistic and technical aspects and which will surprise and please both the connoisseurs if this repertoire and those who are listening to it for the first time.

The Orquesta de Castilla y León and Cadaqués Orchestra perform Shostakovich

Posted by Redacción on February 19, 2008  |  Leave a comment

The Orquesta Sinfónica de Castilla y León and Cadaqués Orchestra, conducted by Gianandrea Noseda, joined musical forces during the Ibermúsica season for a performance of Dimitri Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 4 in D minor. The performance, lauded by public and critics alike, is now available on CD from Tritó recorded at the Centro Cultural Miguel Delibes in Valladolid shortly before its inauguration last year. This symphony, one the Russian composer’s most important works, reflects in its passages the convulsive period of Stalinist Russia in 1936 and make the piece, in the words of Luis Suñén “protean, uncommonly moving, in which the life of a man appears utterly bared. This an extraordinary example of how true it is that music speaks for itself .” A rendition that balances the entire range of emotional elements in the work, from triumph to despair, outstanding both for the work of the Italian conductor and the teamwork of the two orchestras, which after having collaborated on previous occasions, record here together for the first time.

Re-edition of the Granados’ Opera Goyescas

Posted by Redacción on November 22, 2007  |  Leave a comment

Tritó announces the re-edition on CD of the live performance of  “Goyescas o Los majos enamorados” by the Catalan composer Enrique Granados, recorded at the Auditori Enrique Granados in Lérida, as part of the events to commemorate the 700th Anniversary of the University of Lérida, on 21 and 22 April 1997. It is performed by the Orquestra de Cadaqués conducted by Gianandrea Noseda, the Coral de Bilbao and the soloists Carmen González, Josep Ruiz, Maite Arruabarrena and Alfonso Echevarría. The recording is of Albert Guinovart’s orchestral arrangements, whose intention was to “clarify as far as possible the instrumentation while respecting the original manuscript, and to heighten the most meaningful aspects, as well as strengthen the melodic aspect of the orchestra.” Every measure of this work is marked by the spirit of Granados, a fundamental figure in Catalan musical nationalism and romanticism. Still we should stress in this recording some of its masterful moments, such as the Intermezzo, or moments as sublime as the entire third part, which from the interlude to the last measure is of incomparable beauty. The opera Goyescas is based on an earlier piece by the composer, of the same title, but written for the piano. Granados drew his inspiration from Goya, specifically the sketches he did for this tapestries for the Crown, which the composer saw during his stay in Madrid in 1898. His words on the subject, found in a range of texts and letters, are quite clear: “In my Goyescas I have concentrated my entire personality. I fell in love with Goya’s mind and with his palette; and thus with his Maja, señora; with his Majo, aristocrat; with him and with the Duchess of Alba, with his quarrelling, with his loves, with his flirtatious remarks.”

A year to remember

Over the course of the year 2004 there have been numerous performances of Jesús Rueda’s works, several of which merit special mention. Last May James MacMillan conducted the Spanish Radio and Television (RTVE) Orchestra in a performance of Rueda’s 1st Symphonies and 2nd Symphonie.

The prestigious Arditti String Quartet also honoured him with a concert consisting entirely of his quartets in September at the Alicante Contemporary Music Festival. Finally, the Cadaqués Orchestra, conducted by Gianandrea Noseda, performed his work Elephant Skin during their tour of Spain this past October. The main concert was held at the Madrid Auditorio as part of the Ibermúsica concert season.
