Arnold Rosner - Nicolas Flagello - Symphonic Masses (Rosner Symphony No.5/Flagello Missa Sinfonica)

I am endlessly grateful to Naxos for releasing some of Rosner's music in the recent past; while his
music has been on several labels including Albany Records & Harmonia Mundi France, Naxos is
the major player at least as far as reaching larger audiences go. Just like the prior Flagello/Rosner
post, I quite prefer the Rosner to put it mildly however Flagello is likeable and easily accessible.
Arnold Rosner's Symphonic Mass is his Symphony No.5 "Missa sine Cantoribus super Salve Regina"
and, like most of his works, it's a real knock-out; equally powerful and beautiful. Enjoy!




This disc brings together the first recordings of two symphonic Masses, orchestral works (without chorus) inspired by and structured according to the Ordinary of the Roman Catholic Mass. Both composers, one Roman Catholic (Flagello), the other Jewish (Rosner), were in their late twenties when they wrote their respective works, and both have pursued and aesthetic orientation that would generally be termed “neo-romantic”. However, while the two works are comparable in concept and dimension, they are dramatically different in musical style and impact (although the same traditional plainchant appears in the Gloria of each work).

Thanks a lot for this wonderful music. I already had a CD of Flagello but I didn't know Rosner! A real discover! Go on posting this kind of music! Franz

There is so much music to explore. One could spend several lifetimes finding new sounds/compositions. I will try The Rosner due to your high recommendation ! Many thanks

Hi Franz. Yes I like Flagello, I don't find his music to be fantastic but pretty engaging still. Happy to introduce you to Rosner's music, it's truly wonderful.
Thx for commenting!

zarg05 thank you for commenting. And do try Rosner, I hope you become hooked :) -Be sure to check an earlier post of Rosner's orchestral music on Laurel records; it's one of the best available discs.
Regards

Hey nhac there will be plenty of Naxos discs, it's the most important classical music co. out there I would say. They have come such a long way since it's inception years ago!!

I tried to download this cd as I was looking forward to finally hearing some of Rosner's music, but alas I keep getting a file corrupt or damaged message from my Zip program? Any ideas?

I had the same problem. I found that if I unzipped the files into my normal download folder without creating the folder (Path) in the zip file it worked fine.

Tzadik said...

Hi Jeff, I just d/l the file and it opens fine for me.-The only thing I can think of, is that I accidentally left a space between the extension (zip) and the "dot".
So, it end with . zip instead of .zip -Try removing the space between the extension and the dot so it's .zip If that doesn't work I will re-up it for you

Tzadik said...

Anon, so you did ultimately open the zip ok then?
