Description
Folk music, jazz, and tango disport in Darius Milhaud's popular Le carnaval d'Aix, a "fantasy for piano and orchestra" of 1926. Benjamin Britten's Young Apollo for piano and string orchestra, Op. 16, (1939) was commissioned by the CBC, with the composer as soloist in the first performance. Also on this lavish program are Gerald Finzi's Eclogue and a 1920 concert suite Richard Strauss composed from his incidental music to Molière's Le bourgeois gentilhomme.

"Young Apollo portrays the young god in all his hard, dazzling splendour. The opening is as icy-cold and brilliant as that of Les Illuminations … and the two works share the same voice…. The transformation of the opening theme into the closing gesture is typical of the composer's precocious talent during this period. A short reflective passage just before the end is sensitively handled by the soloist and the challenging bravura throughout the rest of the piece holds no fears for him…. Pierce is a pianist who need fear no comparison with the finest and the orchestral support from two Slovak orchestras led by the English conductor Kirk Trevor is excellent."—MusicWeb International
