Beethoven's Symphony No. 6 in F major, Op. 68 ("Pastoral"), was transcribed several times; the version played here is by 19th century composer Selmar Bagge, and doubtless, many people heard the work for the first time through this medium. The seemingly indestructible Martha Argerich takes the lead part here, and the results are marvelous. Martha Argerich plays the "Pastoral" Symphony! A gift for the Argerich fan who has everything. Bagge's version takes steps to make the work pianistic, and Argerich steps up to the challenge; right from the entrancing opening measures of the first movement, the reading has the well-sculpted quality of a great symphonic performance. The second part is played by pianist Theodosia Ntokou, a protégée of Argerich's, and for many listeners, the big news here will be that the performance of the Beethoven Piano Sonata No. 17 in D minor, Op. 31, No. 2 ("Tempest"), is not by Argerich but by Ntokou, who emerges as influenced by Argerich but not a clone. She offers a fine, distinctive "Tempest" that dials back the drama in the outer movements and places the slow movement front and center in a fantasy-like treatment. It's an unorthodox reading that's fully thought out, and it adds to the evidence that Argerich may have found her successor. An entirely absorbing and delightful recording.

Martha Argerich: The Untameable Pianist

For over 60 years the Argentinian pianist Martha Argerich has amazed audiences all over the world with her wild, impulsive playing and her constant risk-taking, overcoming every technical difficulty by turning each of her performances into a fascinating journey.

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.

10 Versions of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique

As a proper manifesto of French romanticism, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique marked the 19th century as much as Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring impacted the 20th. Composed in Paris − which at the time was a global crucible for artistic creation − these two masterpieces catapulted musical language into another dimension. On December 5th, 1830 the revolutionary work of 27-year-old Hector Berlioz deeply moved the musicians present in the small room of the old academy of music, among whom were Meyerbeer and Liszt, who were impressed by the extraordinary audacity of this piece presented just three years after Beethoven’s death.
