There is certainly no shortage of recordings of the Mozart works on this release by Norwegian violinist Vilde Frang, but the performers manage to stand out with intelligent programming and distinctive playing. The Violin Concerto No. 1 in B flat major, K. 207, and Violin Concerto No. 5 in A major, K. 219, work precisely because Frang does not try to make too much of them: her playing in these early Mozart works is brilliant and bright, and they function as something of an overture to the main attraction, the Sinfonia concertante in E flat major, K. 364. Frang who gets all the space in the graphics (and who can blame Warner Classics for this?), but in the Sinfonia concertante veteran violist Maxim Rysanov is an equal partner, and it's here that this recording really stands out. The usual way with this duo concerto is for the two soloists to match each other's styles and let Mozart's melodies come to the fore, but here is a real dialogue in the Romantic way. It's unusual, but it works, especially in the slow movement. The recording is in no way overdone; the chamber orchestra Arcangelo under Jonathan Cohen provides spare, crisp accompaniment, and the combination of the sparse texture with the distinct soloist personalities is compelling. The cadenzas in the violin concertos, one of them by Joseph Joachim, add another Romantic note. This album both hangs together well and is a great deal of fun. 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.

Julius Katchen: 50 Shades of Brahms

It may seem like every pianist alive today has tried their hand at Brahms - especially his last opuses from 116 to 119. But this hasn’t always been the case. Having started recording Brahms for Decca Records in 1962, the American pianist Julius Katchen was the first to complete the German composer’s entire piano works. Ten years later, the German pianist Peter Rösel followed in his footsteps, as well as a dozen or so others more recently.
