For this release from Zig-Zag Territoires, Heinz Holliger leads the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne in two works of Arnold Schoenberg, the string orchestra version of Verklärte Nacht, and the Chamber Symphony No. 2, followed by Anton Webern's Langsamer Satz, also arranged for string orchestra. All three pieces are tonal, predating the development of atonality and the later twelve-tone system, with which these composers are most strongly associated. Yet they also show a pushing of the boundaries of tonality, revealing the need both men felt for liberating harmonies and keys from the strictures of 19th century common practice. Verklärte Nacht is clearly in the key of D minor, though it's intense chromaticism makes it unstable and restless, rather in the style of Wagner's Prelude to Tristan und Isolde. The Chamber Symphony No. 2, rendered in neo-Classical style, clearly has a tonal orientation, but the quartal progressions and angular counterpoint create ambiguity and harmonic resolution is consistently avoided. Webern's movement, originally written for string quartet, is similar to Verklärte Nacht in its unstable chromatic harmonies, though it conveys much warmer post-Romantic expressions. Holliger and his musicians give these pieces clear, concise readings that focus the pieces and make them comprehensible, even in their densest passages. Zig-Zag's sound is exceptional in its presence and depth, and the transparent separation of parts is especially helpful for listeners following scores.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.

Nils Frahm, An Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.

Women Composers: A Secret History

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho, music history has been marked by female figures who “dared” to write music. Is creation a male privilege? Our sound museum does hold more well-known and recognised male than female composers. Yet their works are no less exciting and there is absolutely no reason for them to play second fiddle, or be ignored altogether. Below, you’ll find a defence and illustration of female composition works through eleven musical portraits.
