There is seduction and danger in Spices, Perfumes, Toxins! In his three-movement work, Avner Dorman offers an exciting blend in which percussion is the centerpiece - drums from the Far East encounter orchestral percussion and rock drums. Regional color and global sound merge in the music; Indian scales combine with minimalist patterns, and borrowings from Baroque arias become Eastern melodies, while the bass grooves with jazz feeling.
Beethoven's Coriolan Overture, composed at the same time as the Fifth Symphony, ends tragically. With symphonic format and realistic drama, the composer portrays a proud, defiant hero burdened with guilt as a traitor to his country. Although Brahms's first two symphonies still reflect his grappling with Beethoven, the third displays an original, bold style - metric shifts, alternation between major and minor, and extreme sensitivity, at times veiled in austerity.
