Overview

This is the tenth volume in a series devoted to the recordings of Austrian conductor Georg Tintner, whose suicide in 1999 represented a painful loss for the music community worldwide. These Naxos discs are not, as would normally be expected, mere repackaging of the many recordings Tintner made for the company, but are recordings that were originally made for the CBC's in-house label, several being with the Nova Scotia Symphony. This volume brings Frederick Delius' "Violin Concerto" into the company of seven of his shorter orchestral "favorites" and it was previously released as CBC SM 5134. Tintner takes his time with all of the Delius on this disc, and the results are very musical and representative of Delius' style. For a small (37-member) regional Canadian orchestra, the Nova Scotia Symphony is in tremendously good voice here. Violin soloist Philippe Djokic, professor of violin at Dallhouse University in Halifax, puts forward a thoughtful and sensitive reading of Delius' at times rather nebulous and austere-sounding "Violin Concerto." This is a splendid recording that is of equal stature or better than the finest Delius offerings available in digital sound. A debt of thanks is owed to Naxos for making these Georg Tintner recordings available again; the bargain price of the disc is merely icing on the cake.
