The catalog is brimming with superlative recordings of Grieg's Peer Gynt Suites from the monaural, stereo, and digital eras. This offering sets itself apart by pairing that popular standard with eight of Grieg's songs for voice and orchestra. Bjarte Engeset and the Malmö Symphony may be out-gunned by some bigger named conductor-orchestra combinations, but their performances here are still strong, energetic, and colorful. More importantly, the performances of the eight songs by Inger Dam-Jensen and Palle Knudsen are nearly as good as it gets in these much less familiar works. Dam-Jensen's clear, vibrant soprano is heartbreaking in "Solveig's Cradle Song," while Knudsen's big, virile baritone is heart-swelling in the ballade Henrik Wergeland. Engeset and the Malmö Symphony provide competent accompaniments. So, while the Grieg shopper looking for a Peer Gynt has many other choices, and many better ones than this, the inclusion of the songs makes this otherwise middle-of-the-road recording stand out. Produced by Morten Mogensen and engineered by Erik Nielsen, Naxos' 2006 digital sound, though not particularly warm, is sharp, colorful, and detailed.

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.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.
