Info:
As a boy Benjamin Godard (1849-1895) was a celebrated violin prodigy, but later turned to composition as his life's work. With the notable exception of the ever-popular Berceuse from the opera Jocelyn, the most of Godard's works have fallen out of the repertoire. A thorough romantic in the Schumann-Mendelssohn mould, Godard was best known for his short atmospheric pieces and stave works, while his short piano pieces have recently garnered new respect. Two of his most successful longer works are the Concerto Romantique and the Violin Concerto No. 2, both featuring deft virtuoso writing for the violin and the romantic sensibility of the mid-19th century.


Reviews:

The Strad
It's to Hanslip's credit that she is unafraid to risk the unfamiliar. She makes a triumphant success of this concerto, not least because her playing is as forceful and muscular as it is assured, and one hears in every entry how well thought-through are her approach and her grasp of the work's subtle musical nuance.


Classic FM
[Godard’s two violin concertos] combine the effortless melodic fluency of Saint-Saëns with the scorching pyrotechnics of Wieniawski. Chloë Hanslip plays them with total dedication and passion, soaring aloft on a magic carpet of golden legato tone, while fully reveling in the music’s virtuoso dash and sparkle. Bruch and Sarasate fans should definitely give this one a spin.


ClassicsToday
This is an absolutely delightful disc. French composer Benjamin Godard wrote tons of music before his early death (in his mid-40s) in 1895, and his Second Violin Concerto must surely rank high not just in opus number - 131 - but in musical quality as well. The booklet compares him to Saint-Saëns, and it's easy to understand why. The craftsmanship, winning melodic gift, sparkling orchestration, and somewhat conservative harmonic stance all point to the French master. Godard's sound, whether you agree or not with the comparison, is refreshingly un-Germanic, and a world away from the soggy faux-Brahms or faux-Wagner style so prevelant in English and French orchestral music of the period. This concerto has a finale with such a catchy main tune that you won't believe it isn't much better known.

The Concerto Romantique, in four movements instead of the usual three, also has a hidden gem in the form of its third-movement Canzonetta, while the Scènes Poétiques is a brief orchestral work that recalls the Chabrier of the Suite Pastorale. Chloë Hanslip plays both concertos with fearless virtuosity and a touch of rough tone now and again (perhaps exaggerated by the close balance), but also with an overall sense of fun that's wholly winning. In that irresistible finale of the Second Concerto she positively sparkles. The Slovak State Philharmonic, under Kirk Trevor, offers fine accompaniments, and certainly has improved as an ensemble in the years since its first recordings for Naxos. If you like good Romantic violin music, you'll snap this up without delay.

aliomodo, great upload as always! Your blog is delight to browse! :))))

Thanks for this. I look forward to listening to it. I assume that the op.35 canzonetta is that which appears (inadequately described) on a well-known Oscar Shumsky recording.

I have almost no Godard - apart from the Berceuse, just the 18 (piano) Etudes op.149.

I have started to listen and, yes, the canzonetta is the same BUT your tracks are misnumbered (that's where covers and logs come into their own for figuring out what's wrong).

Your tracks 01-11 are actually tracks 2, 3, 6, 8, 9, 10, 1, 4, 5, 7, 11.

Perhaps you could re-upload the file with the tracks correctly labelled and numbered!

@ all:

There seems to be a problem with the track order for the mp3 files. (Lossless download is fine.) Thanks to Philidor for pointing this out. I'll put a new link here in a short while...

Oh, and thanks for all the comments! I feel motivated now, and my next upload might come very soon! ;-)
