In the 19th and early 20th centuries, the operas of Jules Massenet were regularly performed and quite popular, and even though he was increasingly regarded by his colleagues as old-fashioned, works such as Manon, Werther, and Thaïs continued to be staged around the world, right up to the present. However, a full-fledged revival of Massenet's earlier works has yet to occur, and the ballets and other pieces extracted from Le Cid, Le roi de Lahore, Phèdre, Les érinnyes, and Don César de Bazan are unlikely to make this 2014 Chandos release an instant hit with the public. Bearing in mind that there are always delightful melodies and attractive scenes in Massenet's best music, listeners with even a slight appreciation of French Romantic music will find something to enjoy here. Also, considering the indefatigable efforts of Neeme Järvi and the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande to expand the concert repertoire with neglected but admirable orchestral music, they are quite successful at what they set out to achieve. However, the single drawback of this album is the absence of Massenet's greatest hit, the Méditation from Thaïs, which is offered separately as a free download at the label's website. That may lure listeners to explore other offerings in the catalog, but owners of this SACD should have received the track up front, without being required to switch from the multichannel format to a digital file. Even so, the absence of the widely available Méditation isn't a deal breaker for those who choose to explore Massenet's less familiar but charming music, which is well represented.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.

Bruno Walter, Memories of a Departed Legend

Listening to Bruno Walter’s recordings, in light of the splendid remastered editions published by Sony Classical, you tap into a truly humanistic culture. A tremendous conductor, music was his vocation, a way of life and an art of thought. His recordings have conserved his art vocal music, intense but never sentimental, thanks to a clear linearity complemented by a versatile rhythm, ensuring clarity, coherence and vigour.
