David Zinman and the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich have received extraordinary praise for their polished recordings of Gustav Mahler's symphonies, and kudos will surely greet the appearance of the Symphony No. 8 in E flat major, the most ambitious work of the cycle and the greatest challenge to a conductor's ability to marshal several ensembles into one immense entity. Hallmarks of Zinman's earlier Mahler recordings and RCA's superb engineering are the crispness and clarity of details, and the ensemble sound is exquisitely balanced between the chamber groupings within sections and the towering orchestral climaxes. The same is true in this recording of the Eighth, a work with such massive forces and widespread logistics that getting close microphone placement is difficult, and finding the proper sound levels for several hundred singers and instrumentalists is crucial. Fortunately, this performance sounds warm and intimate in the sparest sections and heaven-storming at the fullest, all without seeming to be artificially manipulated at the mixing board. Zinman, the nine vocalists, the four choirs, and the orchestra deliver this majestic symphony with exceptional enthusiasm and concentrated energy , so the music never bogs down in sluggish tempos or becomes muddy in tone. The high level of excellence of this performance will remind experienced listeners of some of the finest recordings made of this work, and it surely matches any other rendition released on SACD. The power and passion of the singing and the playing matches the depth and spaciousness of the reproduction, thereby making this a delight for both Mahler fans and audio buffs. Highly recommended.

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.

Picasso, when painting meets music

The modernist genius of Picasso quickly went beyond the pictorial frame to irradiate music and dance, two arts with which the Spanish painter has always had a close relationship, even influencing his composer friends met along the way.

Mason Bates' weird and wonderful electronic symphonies

What do you mean, you haven’t heard about Mason Bates (yet)? He is one of the hottest names on the North-American music scene. Born in 1977, Bates is a symphonic and lyrical composer as well as an electro DJ (under the alias DJ Masonic) – two completely opposing genres which he takes great delight in mixing. Around half of his symphonic and lyrical work consists, in one way or another, of electronic sounds. The majority of these sounds are “every day sounds”, which are prerecorded and later put into a score. On the release date of his brilliant opera The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, Qobuz interviewed this extraordinary person.
