Philippe Herreweghe founded Collegium Vocale Ghent in 1970 and has been its primary conductor since, so it's no surprise that after 40 years, on this 2011 recording of J.S. Bach's B minor Mass, the conductor and choir project an organically unified approach to the masterpiece. From the opening Kyrie Eleison, the singers' intuitive understanding of each other is evident in the surging waves of sound expressing urgent supplications for God's mercy. Throughout, the group responds to Herreweghe's nuanced leadership with supple fluency. Herreweghe draws a bright, vibrant sound from his singers and instrumentalists. His approach to the music is fleet and buoyant, and the musicians respond to his tempi with agility. This reading is nearly 10 minutes shorter than the average version, but it never feels hurried. The group's instrumental ensemble, using period instruments, can produce a full, colorful, rounded sound in the larger choruses, but pares its tone to appropriate leanness in movements like the alto solo Agnus Dei. The horn obbligato in the bass solo Quoniam tu solus sanctus is particularly impressive, especially since it is played on a natural horn. The five vocal soloists are not international superstars but they are expert interpreters of this music, technically solid and distinguished in the purity and expressiveness of their voices. The sound of the Out Here CD is clean and crisp, and somewhat on the bright side. In music of this contrapuntal intricacy, that clarity makes it easy to hear Bach's elaborate interweaving of lines. The ambience is not lacking in warmth and depth, though, and the balance and stereo definition are excellent.

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.

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.
