Anyone who would like to hear Otto Klemperer's legendary interpretations of Ludwig van Beethoven's symphonies should be aware that these remastered 1960 Vienna Festival performances from Music & Arts are no substitute for his classic EMI recordings, which have been hailed as landmarks and reissued numerous times. The sound engineers have done a decent job remastering these concert performances and cleaning up the tapes of unwanted hiss, but the limitations of live analog recording in the mid-20th century are still in evidence here. The sound overall is small, distant, and compressed, with an obvious loss of upper partials, and the Philharmonia seems squeezed into a box, with the thin upper strings' tone dominating and everybody else homogenized into a murky sonic mass below. Details are difficult to make out, and distinguishing the instruments requires a considerable boost of the volume. This is certainly a worthwhile set for scholarly purposes, and students interested in Klemperer's interpretations and tempos can still glean a lot from these performances. Klemperer's admirers may also wish to have this reissue as a complement to the EMI set, for the sake of comparing Klemperer's studio and live renditions. Even so, anyone seeking a basic set of the symphonies for first-time listening should try all-digital recordings before delving into this historical offering.

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.
