In an earnest attempt to present a balanced program of Sergey Rachmaninov's solo piano music, pianist Alessio Bax has set the 10 Preludes as a centerpiece for his 2011 album on Signum Classics and added selections of early and later pieces to round out the portrait. Yet because Rachmaninov's post-Romantic style didn't undergo the dramatic changes that mark distinct periods in the music of his friend Alexander Scriabin, this scrupulous observance of youthful and mature works does not reveal as many differences as Bax hoped. What is revealed, though, is Bax's abundant enthusiasm for the composer, whose demanding music has been a formative influence on his playing, ever since he was exposed to Rachmaninov's recordings in childhood. Bax's passionate outpouring of expression and physical prowess make this a convincing recital, and anyone who enjoys the virtuoso tradition of pianism that is embodied in the Preludes will also find much to like in the other pieces, which date from as early as 1887, up to the 1920s. While the sound is clean and reasonably resonant, the piano's tone seems a little diminished by the spacious acoustics of Wyaston Hall, Monmouthshire.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.

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.

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.
