Nearly all of RCA's releases in its Red Seal Classic Library series have been reissues. That's fine: RCA has many superlative recordings in its vaults, and reissuing them is the appropriate means to keep them in circulation. But this particular disc of Grieg's orchestral music performed by the Royal Philharmonic under the direction of Yuri Temirkanov has never been released before and is thus new to circulation. When it was recorded is anybody's guess -- the notes fail to mention recording dates -- but the evidence suggest the early '90s, the same period in which Temirkanov recorded the Tchaikovsky with the same ensemble for the same label. Why these recordings were not released at the time is harder to guess: at the time, not only was Temirkanov's star rising, but the whole classical recording industry was experiencing an enormous increase in business. More to the point, however, these are tremendous performances: strong, sensitive, soulful, and masterful. At the time, Temirkanov was clearly one of the best of the younger generation of Russian conductors with a powerful but flexible beat, a muscular but supple balance, and complete control over every aspect of orchestral music making. The Royal Philharmonic plays like the most brilliantly colorful and heroically muscular orchestra in England and it follows its Russian-born conductor like the Light Brigade at Balaclava. But beyond even the performances, it is the order of the music that makes this disc so noteworthy. In his selection of music from Peer Gynt, Temirkanov shapes a musically and dramatically satisfying whole, something that very, very few other arrangements have ever done. The remaining works on the disc -- the Norwegian Dances and the Wedding Procession -- are also superb, but the Peer Gynt all by itself justifies the release of this disc.

Erased Tapes, a Not-so-classic Label

Since its birth in 2007, Erased Tapes has made a name for itself as one of the most innovative labels of the last 15 years and enjoyed great commercial success. Although some fail to see past its neoclassical shopfront (Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds), the London-based label explores the outer limits of ambient, electronica and experimental with a catalogue that's smoothly curated by the German Robert Raths. Qobuz takes a closer look.

Nils Frahm, An Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of electronic experiences, Nils Frahm’s talent has managed to get everyone to agree 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.
