Jarvi, CSO to record Berlioz

By Janelle Gelfand
The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Paavo Jarvi, 37, music-director designate of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, will record his first album with the orchestra in October.

        The disc for Telarc International (the label that records the CSO and Pops) will include Berlioz' Symphonie fantastique and the “Love Scene” from Berlioz' Romeo et Juliette.

        The recording sessions at Music Hall are scheduled for the days following Maestro Jarvi's CSO concerts Oct. 5-7.

        In January, Mr. Jarvi was named the CSO's 12th music director, succeeding Jesus Lopez-Cobos. The Estonian-American maestro will begin his tenure in September, 2001.

        Mr. Jarvi has made 16 recordings with other ensembles, and has a contract with EMI-Virgin Classics. This weekend, he is conducting Shostakovich's Symphony No. 10 with the Berlin Philharmonic in Berlin.

        Telarc plans two other recording projects in the 2000-2001 season. In September, the CSO and Mr. Lopez-Cobos will record Shostakovich's Symphony No. 1 and Symphony No. 15, in the orchestra's first recording of that composer.

        The CSO's third disc next season will include Debussy's “Iberia” from Images and three works by Turina with Mr. Lopez-Cobos, to be recorded in March.

        To honor Mr. Lopez-Cobos' tenure — the second-longest in CSO history — subscribers will receive a limited-edition CD with selections from the 22 Telarc recordings made by the CSO's 11th music director.

        New youth maestro: The Cincinnati Symphony Youth Orchestra has a new maestro.

        Miami University faculty member Jose-Luis Novo has been appointed assistant conductor of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. Among his duties, he will be music director of the youth orchestra. Mr. Novo will succeed Alastair Willis, who is leaving for the Seattle Symphony.

        Mr. Novo, who leads the Miami University Symphony Orchestra and the Oxford (Ohio) Chamber Orchestra, is pursuing his doctorate at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. A native of Spain, Mr. Novo played violin in the National Youth Orchestra of Spain, and in 1998 took that youth orchestra on a tour of Spain and Portugal.
