Notes and Editorial Reviews

I've no idea how long Rattle has been conducting
Szymanowski, but a good musical detective ought to be
able to work it out on the basis of this collection. In one
sense the evidence says 'not very long'; there's a huge
enthusiasm here, a missionary quality that bespeaks the
recent convert. On the other hand the care over matters
of balance, the knowledge of just those points where
Szymanowski's complexity needs very careful handling if
it's not simply to blur into opacity, suggest a conductor
who has been there before and knows the dangers. On
the side of 'four or five years at least' should also be set
Rattle's evident enjoyment at discovering analogies with
other and more obviously 'modern' composers: Ravel,
obviously, but also Berg; even a recollection that one of
Witold Lutoslawski's formative experiences was being
knocked sideways by Szymanowski's Third Symphony?
So on the whole I'd opt for 'four or five years at least',
with perhaps a conscious decision to delay recording this
music until the circumstances were right. What else could
the musical detective discover? That the CBSO Chorus
have (while waiting?) made good use of a Polish coach:
they sound not only thoroughly at home in the music but
in the language too. I suspect also that the clincher on the decision to
go ahead with this recording might well have been Rattle's realization
that in Elzbieta Szmytka he had a soprano who might have been born
to sing Szymanowski's pure, floated and very high-lying soprano
lines (in the Stabat mater and the Litany; in the symphony he uses a
tenor, which was Szymanowski's own first choice).
The result is very fine indeed: one of the most beautiful Szymanowski
recordings that I've heard. And yet 'beautiful Szymanowski' isn't all
that hard if the orchestra's good enough and the conductor capable.
Rattle's insistence that all of the music be heard, its bones and
sinews as well as its flesh, its urgency and passion as well as its
deliquescent loveliness, makes for uncommonly gripping
Szymanowski as well. He reminds one of the ancient roots, religious
and national, that are tapped in the Stabat mater and the Litany, and
of how much more there is to the Third Symphony than voluptuous
yearning: solemnity, for one thing, and a fierce ardour that can
indeed knock you sideways. The choice of soloists for the Stabat
mater is interesting: alongside Szmytka's radiant purity are Quivar's
throaty vibrancy and Connell's weighty darkness. Not a matching trio,
but I like the contrast; it adds to the rich differentiation of sonority
that Rattle draws from his chorus and orchestra. Garrison in the
symphony is a touch hard and strenuous, less enraptured than one or
two of the Polish tenors (and sopranos) who've recorded it, but he's a
musicianly and likeable singer. The recording, made in Symphony
Hall,Birmingham, is outstanding: lucid, rich andspacious, with
tremendous and perfectly focused climaxes.'

Rezensionen

T. Schulz in HiFiVision 7 / 94: "Die funkeln- den Klangfarben dieser sinfonischen Kantate, das permanente Schwanken zwischen Wohlklang und herber Dissonanz, die erotisch aufge- ladene Atmosphäre - all dies benebelt die Sinne wie guter, schwerer Wein. Später wurde Szyma- nowskis Tonsprache dann wesentlich herber, wie sein meditatives Stabat mater zeigt. Höchste Bewertungen für Interpretation und Klangqua- lität."
