Released in 2014, these recordings of Gustav Mahler's middle symphonies, performed by Loren Maazel and the Philharmonia Orchestra, have been put together as a set, in the same cardboard slip-cover packaging as the first three symphonies, issued by Signum Classics in 2013. These are live performances, recorded in London's Royal Festival Hall, and the experienced listener will likely guess that they are a mixed lot that requires some sampling prior to purchase. Maazel has been variable in his Mahler recordings over the years, sometimes hitting high points, as he does in his exciting rendition of the Symphony No. 6 in A minor, "Tragic," and at other times having some near misses, as he does in his somewhat less compelling readings of the Symphony No. 4 in G major and the Symphony No. 5 in C sharp minor, which seem heavy and uninspired. But perhaps worse than the vagaries of interpretations is the concert sound, which ranges from extremely close-up and detailed to thick and murky, with noticeable imbalances between the sections, as if the orchestra was unevenly miked. While these are above average performances with interesting aspects, they face serious competition from many great performances that are readily available, so these CDs are perhaps of greatest interest to Mahler aficionados or fans of Maazel, rather than first-time listeners.

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.

Koechlin, the Alchemist

Deeply rooted in both tradition and innovation, the immense work of Koechlin bewildered his contemporaries due to its many facets, its freedom and its philosophical dimension. The album finally allows us to grasp the full measure of this sound alchemist and brilliant prophet who, most probably, was born before his time… We’ll be thinking of him on November 27th, the date marking 150 years since his birth.

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…
