About this Recording

MARKEVITCH, I.: Orchestral Works (Complete), Vol. 7 - Piano Concerto / Cantate / Icare (Hoek, Arnhem Philharmonic, Lyndon-Gee)

Igor Markevitch’s extraordinary precocity as a composer is startlingly revealed in this seventh volume of his complete orchestral music. The energy, invention and sheer expressive élan of his Piano Concerto, written at the tender age of sixteen, mark it as a work of amazing maturity. Cantate sets a text by Jean Cocteau to music originally commissioned by the Ballets Russes. Icare is likewise the reworking of another abandoned Ballets Russes project, L’envol d’Icare, which can be heard on Naxos 8.572153 (Volume 3).
