Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Mariss Jansons, Poulenc, Honegger - Poulenc > Gloria / Honegger > Symphony No. 3 'Liturgique' album
Mariss Jansons was appointed as the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra’s sixth chief conductor in September 2004. From 1988, he had appeared on many occasions as a guest conductor in Amsterdam. It will also appear in upcoming performances of Mahler’s Third and Eighth Symphonies conducted by Mariss Jansons. The Brazilian conductor Celso Antunes serves as the choir’s principal conductor. The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra was founded in 1888 and grew into a world renowned ensemble under the leadership of conductor Willem Mengelberg.
Mariss Jansons leads the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and the Netherlands Radio Choir in a vigorous performance of the piece with Luba Orgonásová as soprano soloist. Jansons doesn't shy away from the work's cheekiness, and with the full complicity of the orchestra and chorus, delivers a satisfyingly gleeful reading. Orgonásová, who has the most consistently reverent music in the score, sings radiantly. A huge emotional gulf separates Poulenc's carefree Gloria from Arthur Honegger's anguished Symphony No. 3 "Liturgique," written immediately after the Second World.

Honegger Symphony No. 3 Liturgique - I. Dies Irae.
Poulenc: Gloria, Honegger: Symphony No. 3 ~ Jansons. When I was younger the Poulenc Gloria attained semi-popular status, which is easy to understand given its glitzy surface and romping tunes (I've never quite believed in Poulenc's conversion from gay boulevardier to sober Catholic). Leonard Bernsteinr ecorded it with the NY Philharmonic, and there was another competitive version from Georges Pretre on EMI. Jansons gives us a surprisingly committed, even jazzy reading with lots of punch.
