Notes & Reviews:

This first volume of the Naxos 'Igor Markevitch Complete Orchestral Works Edition', to be followed by the seven volumes previously released on Marco Polo, brings together two relatively early compositions of astonishing technical and aesthetic assurance. The 'Partita' is in effect already his second 'Piano Concerto', written when the composer was twenty. The granitic oratorio 'Paradise Lost', whose premiere the composer himself conducted at the BBC in London barely three years later, is among the most important of the composer's works, bearing comparison with Stravinsky's contemporaneous 'OEdipus Rex' and 'Persephone', yet of striking individuality of vision.
