Musikalisches Opfer - Igor Markevitch: Orchestral Works, Vol. 8
Hailed as among the most singular youthful compositions of their time, Igor Markevitch’s astonishingly vivid original works have been released to critical acclaim by Naxos. Markevitch outdoes Webern’s famous orchestration of the six-part Ricercare by arranging J.S. Bach’s entire Musical Offering for three orchestral groups and solo quartet, and creating a masterful, fully integrated symphonic interpretation which would remain a personal favourite among his many striking productions. ‘…expressive performance…a very valuable addition to the series’ (International Record Review on original Marco Polo release). This is the final volume of the complete orchestral works of Igor Markevitch.
