To mark Seiji Ozawa's 75th birthday celebration, Decca has assembled an impressive box set of his finest recordings for the label, which amounts to 11 CDs of almost 12 hours of exceptional music, brilliantly performed by five great orchestras. The program has its share of warhorses, namely Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique, Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5 in E minor, and his crowd-pleasing "1812" Overture, but there is much here that's far off the beaten path and worth investigating. The opening disc presents Bartók's Music for Strings, Percussion, and Celesta, followed by the Concerto for Orchestra, so this is evidently a cue to take this set seriously. Other important choices are a handful of works by Takemitsu, whom Ozawa has championed for many years, a complete recording on one disc of Mahler's Symphony No. 2, and a CD of 20th century orchestral arrangements of music by Bach, possibly the most controversial and quirkiest of the set with its odd-lot transcriptions by Stravinsky, Schoenberg, Webern, Stokowski, and Saito. The rest of the set is perhaps less thought-provoking, but certainly just as enjoyable, with an assortment of popular works by Ravel, Poulenc, Rimsky-Korsakov, Richard Strauss, and Wagner, and a closing disc devoted to music on the theme of Romeo and Juliet by Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Berlioz, and Bernstein. Ozawa's fans may have some of these great recordings already, but because this package exposes the listener to much of his work that is special and hard to find, it is definitely worth spending a little time to examine its contents in depth.

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.

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.

The Paradox of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Studio

In France this summer for the Rencontres musicales d'Évian, where he conducted the Symphonic Orchestra of La Grange au Lac, the acclaimed Finnish conductor and prolific composer of over 60 albums Esa-Pekka Salonen discusses his unique approach to working on classical music in the studio.
