Gramophone Magazine, April 2013 Järvi and his Suisse Romande players seem to be having a whale of a time, or least that's the impression that these extremely vital performances perfect place to dip a toe into Raffian waters. Raff's Second isn't really memorable stuff, but his Four Shakespeare Preludes deserve much more regular airings, writes Andrew Clements. 3, 5 stars 3 out of 5 stars.

This disc marks the beginning of a new series of recordings devoted to the engaging, albeit neglected orchestral music of the Swiss-German composer Joachim Raff. We start with Symphony No. 2 and the Orchestral Preludes to four plays by Shakespeare: The Tempest, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, and Othello. Raff was one of the most influential musicians of his day, ranking alongside Wagner and Brahms. He was highly prolific, composing close to 300 works, and his music was widely performed. Joachim Raff 1822-1882 was a celebrated composer in his time, equally as famous as his older contemporaries Schumann and Liszt he was the latters assistant in Weimar in the 1850s. Raff wrote prolifically, composing eleven symphonies, yet his work fell out of favour and is rarely played today. Raff embraced programmatic music, and this side of the composer can be heard in his four Shakespearean Preludes. They pre-echo the tone poems of Richard Strauss, but again Strauss did it with more imagination and individuality. If you dont expect more, this smartly performed and beautifully recorded disc will probably delight you. Symphony no. 2, Four Shakespeare Preludes. Hybrid SACD. GB2013-02-01.
