  Ignaz PLEYEL (1751-1831)
Symphonies in B flat and G • Flute Concerto in C

Sinfonia Finlandia Jyväskylä • Patrick Gallois, conductor & flute

During his long and energetic life, Ignaz Joseph Pleyel distinguished himself as a composer, publisher and piano manufacturer. His versatility, one of the keys to his survival in the turbulent years of the French Revolution, is also to be found in abundance in his vast musical output. This recording features two scintillating symphonies and Pleyel’s only authentic concerto for flute; all three works amply illustrate the reason why he achieved such an unprecedented level of popularity in the last two decades of the 18th Century.
  Evencio CASTELLANOS (1915-1984)
Santa Cruz de Pacairigua
El Río de las Siete Estrellas • Suite Avileña

Orquesta Sinfónica de Venezuela • Jan Wagner

Evencio Castellanos belonged to the generation of Venezuelan composers who established a new nationalistic style in the first half of the 20th century. One of his best known works, Santa Cruz de Pacairigua pays homage to the construction of a church in Guatire, near Caracas, quoting popular dance rhythms and melodies, as well as a Venezuelan medieval carol. El Río de las Siete Estrellas (The River of the Seven Stars), inspired by a poem about the Orinoco River, describes events of precolonial Venezuelan history leading up to the country’s independence in 1821. The Suite Avileña, a compilation of scenes alluding to the coastal mountain of El Ávila, borrows from popular songs and Christmas carols, and features the cuatro (a fourstringed version of the European classical guitar) and maracas, two of the most typical Venezuelan folk instruments.
