Joaquín Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez is arguably the most popular work in the entire guitar repertory, and one might reasonably ask whether the world needs one more recording. No one, however, who hears this reading by guitarist Thibaut Garcia and the Orchestre national du Capitole de Toulouse, is going to ask again: it is exceptional. Garcia's performance has a remarkable quality of grace, and grace in reserve, with an uncannily smooth guitar tone. Is it a French, rather than a Spanish, Concierto de Aranjuez? Maybe, but Rodrigo was a student of Dukas, and the liveliness of the dialogues between the guitar and the various instruments of the orchestra, often lost in heavily Spanish-regional performances, are wonderful. Part of the credit, of course, goes to the orchestra and conductor Ben Glassberg. Three more works, as uncommon as the Concierto de Aranjuez is common, fill out the program. There are four short works by Regino Sainz de la Maza, a contemporary of Rodrigo (and the dedicatee and first performer of the Concierto de Aranjuez) who wrote music in a similar vein. The only glimmer of a complaint one might raise against this release is that its Aranjuez title (Aranjuez is an iconic Spanish town near Madrid) refers only to the first two works on the program; after Sainz de la Maza, the music is not just from France but quintessentially French. The Musique de cour d'après Robert de Visée of composer Alexandre Tansman, for guitar and orchestra, is a late piece of French neoclassicism, composed in 1960. It is not a transcription of music by lutenist-composer de Visée but a set of short lyrical fantasies on dances by de Visée, and it has a gorgeous dark quality captured expertly by Garcia. His transcriptions of de Visée close out a superb program, strengthened by ideally clear engineering of the guitar. A landmark recording.

In your panoramas...
Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.

Undervalued: a Look Back on Female Composers

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho and Clara Schumann, several women have managed to break through the macho codes of the milieu and become composers. While the classical music landscape has been largely dominated by men in recent centuries, the work of their female colleagues, whether pioneers or contemporaries, is just as fascinating. Here we put eleven undervalued figures of female composition in the spotlight.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.
