Previously released as separate CD packages in 2013, this slip-covered set of Gustav Mahler's first three symphonies presents Lorin Maazel and the Philharmonia Orchestra in rather mixed live performances. Because there is serious competition from many superb recordings that are readily available, this reissue from Signum Classics will mostly be of interest to Maazel's committed fans and curious Mahler-obsessives who need to hear every extant recording. Otherwise, listeners can pick and choose. The Symphony No. 1 in D major is a routine reading that brings the work across with no nonsense (thankfully without an interpolation of the rejected "Blumine" movement), yet with no real inspiration either. Indeed, there is a marked sluggishness in Maazel's tempos that suggests either flagging energy or perhaps a lack of imagination or enthusiasm for this over-played work. The Symphony No. 2 in C minor, "Resurrection," is given an exaggerated ponderousness that robs it of any potential for real catharsis, and there is no sense of apocalyptic urgency from Maazel's underwhelming third movement to the perfunctory finale. The most enjoyable of the three performances is the Symphony No. 3 in D minor, which is comparatively free of sluggishness and excessive reverence, and the music feels fresh, vital, and exciting, as if Maazel and the Philharmonia had snapped out of a trance and decided to give the performance their all. Instead of buying this set, listeners should consider acquiring the Symphony No. 3 by itself, and skip the other two recordings.

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.

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.

Herbert Von Karajan and The Grand Masters of Classical Music

30 years after his death, the Austrian Herbert von Karajan (Salzbourg 1908 – Anif 1989) still embodies the musical conductor like no other. In charge of the Berlin Philharmonic for 35 years (1955-1989), Karajan helped to elevate the orchestra to a level of global prestige. Throughout his career, he methodically diversified his repertoire: from Beethoven, Brahms and Bruckner to Verdi, Wagner and Strauss…
