Comment of Conductor

@I aimed to come up to composerfs intention as possible. That is a present standard recognition and I was conscious about former recording of Beethoven.

The reason for adoption of 1919 ver.F

@At the recording this time, I adopted this 1919 ver. for the biggest reason that it contains all main music of ballet.

 For the second reason, it unfolds along the outline of the story.

@Moreover, the formation is simple and I thought I can come up to composerfs intention well.

@There is a view that Stravinsky himself came to play 1945 version since certain period because royalty of 1919 version came to an end.

Notice for performanceF

1-  Introduction

At the beginning, Pizz. by C. Bass means heart tone of Kastchei and melody by Arco means his breathing sound.
Tb. seems like snore of Kastchei, but means prince. He sneaks into the garden of Kastchei and ambushes the Firebird that flies to the magic apple tree there.
The last Hr. means cry of the Firebird.
There are sounds that show whizzing by glissando of stringsf harmonics on this 14th subsection. There is an effect beyond my expectation!
I caught the twitter!
iFrom the beginning 1F58`2F07j
Ifm indistinct whether the composer intent or not, but the effect must be done as the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra has a forte for modern music playing.
It was the very best harvest of recording with this Orchestra.

-‚Q- Lfoiseau de feu et sa danse
-
‚R Variation de Lfoiseau de feu
@@@@From the appearance of the Firebird to its capture by prince.
@@@@Very complicated ensemble is produced so brilliantly. Players show their ability.

‚S- Ronde des princesses (Khorovode)
From the dance of princesses in captivity that pick the magic apples to the beginning of love with one of them.
When the
@ballet is choreographed by symphony, itfs regrettable that the beginning of love is postponed.
Here is a faint beating music.

-‚T- Danse infernale de roi Kastchei
This part is the greatest spectacle of this music. The performance is also quite thrilling.

-‚U- Berceuse
Absolutely sleepy! (Itfs an impression of persons that heard this performance.
j

-7 Final
Brand new large drum is used here. It is certainly large instrument that I canft reach by both hands. At last it is played as the sound of breaking of Kastcheifs egg. I want you to feel the naked sound at the hall indeed. It is just like pneumatic gun. It is so shocking.

        Afterward choral by ensemble of brass appears at last. Actually the atmosphere of pray is performed well, but for my regret, the recording is like brass band.

  The recording by Stravinsky himself with this Orchestra is saved. If the then score were left, I could refer his note on it. But I could not find.

  However the performance this time shows inductive excellence of this Orchestra thoroughly. It was cultivated through their approach to modern music and it is their characteristic.

 

 

Peter Ilych Tchaikovsky (1840-1893)

Fantasy Overture gRomeo and Julieth 1880

This version of 1880 is usually possessed in the library of every orchestra.
Introduction begins at the garden of Julietfs home. Hr. means shafts of moonlight appearing through the bark. After it becomes cloudy strings play pizz. as Romeofs steps.
When the moonlight shines, he stops and reminds the conflict between the young of both families in the day time.
Juliet appears at balcony and long for each other. Through a light love scene, the story makes movement.
The last ensemble by woodwinds means choral. And it ends in the regret form.
This is the repertory that the orchestra performs frequently. I had difficulty with removing their custom that remains partly
because I have a policy to be faithful to the score as possible. But I have a full realization that this orchestra is trained well. Above all, unison of strings goes very well. Fantastic!

 

@Not only the functional good point of this orchestra, but also deep emotion are great harvests that I could draw out, I think.

 

 

Polonaise (from opera gEugen Oneginh)

 

I heard about polish dance polonaise. It is faster in Russia and elegant and slowly in Poland.
This time, the tempo goes polish.

By the way, father of Tchaikovsky is a person of Poland. (A member of orchestra said.)
The members played this music for the first time. gBecause we are not the members of orchestra for opera!h someone said.
However, for it is famous music, they were highly motivated to play as this.

 

@I think it is great that I could introduce the deep sound of Warsaw Philharmonic Hall through this music this time.
I also think it is large harvest that functional high level performance of this orchestra could be recorded through gThe Firebirdh.
Moreover, Ifm glad that I could release their subconscious passion through gRomeo and Julieth and Polonaise.

@I want to thank the members of Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra, Deputy Director Mr. Wojciech Nowak, Personal Manager Mr. Tadeusz Boniecki and Ms. Beata M. Kowalczyk as our interpreter.
And I deeply thank Mr. Andrzej Sasin and Ms. Aleksandra Nagórko from CD Accord that helped recording. http://www.cdaccord.com.pl/@
Especially, I thank Mr. Teruo Murakami that accompanied with me from Japan. Besides, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to people that support this project and Director of NKB Ms. Hiromi Kitagawa that takes charge of general finance, English translation and negotiation with Warsaw Philharmonic.
