For this 2009 Onyx disc, Dutch cellist Pieter Wispelwey has assembled a fascinating program of postwar works for cello and executed it with terrific virtuosity and tremendous conviction. The disc opens with Walton's Cello Concerto accompanied by Jeffrey Tate and the Sydney Symphony, and follows it with four works for solo cello: Bloch's First Suite, Ligeti's Sonata, Walton's Passacaglia, and the concluding Ciaccona from Britten's Second Suite. The best program can be undone by a less than convincing performance, but Wispelwey's playing is never less than wholly compelling. With his stupendous technique, huge tone, and persuasive phrasing, Wispelwey is up to the music's most challenging demands, and the performances are remarkable for the intensity he brings to these works. The pieces on this program are predominantly passionate, and Wispelwey tightens the tension until it reaches a climax in Walton's Passacaglia and Britten's Ciaccona. Onyx's sound may be too atmospheric for some listeners, but the sense of space created by hearing the cellist playing in an enormous empty hall is practically palpable.

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.

John Barry, The Genius Jack of All Trades

Composing for the screen demands a taste and a skill for all styles: from disco for a nightclub scene, to a madrigal for a period drama, the cinema musician has to be ready for anything. And John Barry (1933 - 2011) was surely one of the greatest soundtrack composers, and one who was able to immerse himself fully into all genres of music and film.

Tim Burton in 10 Albums

Through feature-length and animated films, Tim Burton has created a fascinating world of cinema over the last thirty years where poetic wonders meet gothic aesthetic and macabre humor. With few exceptions, he worked on most of his films with a specific composer, Danny Elfman. Without Burton’s images, Elfman’s music would not feel the same, and vice-versa. In 2019, the two artists proved this one more time with their last collaboration: the deeply moving "Dumbo".
