This modest disc of Christmas music from Steinway is meant to be purchased physically, although it is also available digitally. It comes packaged with an ornament, a miniature version of the Steinway lyre emblem that is gilded on each of the company's pianos. However, the music is something that should appeal to fans of Steinways who also enjoy Christmas music. Jeffrey Biegel is an ideal pianist for this project and represents Steinway and its instruments well. He is primarily a classical artist, but here proves he can play with equal musicality and charm in many different styles. On the opening track, arranger Andrew Gentile gives Sleighride ragtime and Gershwin-esque embellishments, a welcomed, refreshing refit of a work that's become something of a cliché. The arrangements of Silent Night, Christmas Lullaby, Grown-Up Christmas List, and Auld Lang Syne represent a smooth, piano jazz-style of performance. Christmas Is A-Comin' also begins that way, but halfway through turns into an animated stride version. For the more classically oriented, there are straight up works by Franz Liszt, Max Reger, Vladimir Rebikov, and Sergey Lyapunov, plus excerpts from the Nutcracker that lose none of their appeal in the piano transcription under Biegel's hands. There are also pieces that mix it up a little. The arrangements by Carolyne M. Taylor (whom Biegel has recorded previously) combine well-loved Christmas melodies with classical pieces. Hark! the Herald Angels Sing is a brief set of variations in the style of Beethoven. Fans who like only particular styles of piano playing may prefer to pick and choose their tracks, but fans of Steinway shouldn't be disappointed to get the entire package.

Nelson Freire, a Humble Virtuoso

A child prodigy in his native country, the Brazilian pianist who passed away in November 2021 kept his distance from the noisy fanfare of fame. His enormous hands and his natural and virtuoso technique always assisted his full, powerful and mellow sound. Here Qobuz looks back at the career of a musician that for a long time was the “best-kept secret in the world of the piano”.

Bernard Haitink, a Prophet in his Own Land

The great Dutch conductor who died recently at the venerable age of 92 proved the old adage wrong. Recognised by his peers throughout his own country from his youth, Bernard Haitink spent most of his vast career in the Netherlands, first conducting the Dutch Radio Orchestra and then the prestigious Concertgebouw in Amsterdam for 27 years, with whom he made many legendary recordings for PHILIPS, DECCA and EMI CLASSICS, including more than 450 recordings of a wide range of composers, among which Bruckner and Mahler enjoy pride of place.

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.
