Having already recorded Beethoven's Fifth and Seventh symphonies for Deutsche Grammophon with phenomenal success, Gustavo Dudamel leads the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela in a bracing rendition of the Symphony No. 3 in E flat major, "Eroica," the second album in a series that promises to become one of the most compelling Beethoven cycles in years. When Dudamel made his first Beethoven disc in 2006, he was just breaking into the classical world's consciousness and was still an unknown quantity for many listeners. Six years later, Dudamel is an international celebrity whose every recording is greeted with enthusiasm and critical praise, both of which are sure to attend this recording. Dudamel brings extraordinary energy and enthusiasm to his interpretation, and the orchestra draws on his charismatic power, giving an electric performance that sustains interest for the work's duration. The Third is always a test of a conductor's control of form and the music's propulsion, and Dudamel performs these seemingly contradictory tasks of making the music coherent and volatile, as it were, finding the meeting point of Classical restraint and Romantic passion at the core of Beethoven. That control and passion are also central to Dudamel's conducting, for they inform each other and make for music that satisfies the intellect while it sends tingles up the spine. The overtures to The Creatures of Prometheus and Egmont are provided as filler works that share certain musical elements in common with "Eroica," and are quite complementary choices. Deutsche Grammophon's sound is spacious and resonant, and the orchestra has wonderful physical presence in the close-up recording. Highly recommended.

10 Versions of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique

As a proper manifesto of French romanticism, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique marked the 19th century as much as Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring impacted the 20th. Composed in Paris − which at the time was a global crucible for artistic creation − these two masterpieces catapulted musical language into another dimension. On December 5th, 1830 the revolutionary work of 27-year-old Hector Berlioz deeply moved the musicians present in the small room of the old academy of music, among whom were Meyerbeer and Liszt, who were impressed by the extraordinary audacity of this piece presented just three years after Beethoven’s death.

Radu Lupu: an Understated Genius

Radu Lupu was a poet, magician and pianist who pursued the indescribable. The Romanian artist’s musical approach was brought to life by his tormented and fiercely introverted personality, which was always shrouded in mystery. When sat at his piano, he would knead the keys like dough, seeking a powerful, consistent sound. Radu Lupu passed away on the 17th of April 2022, leaving behind a relatively small, yet incredibly valuable, discographic legacy.

The Earth’s Song: The World of Gustav Mahler

What could have prompted Gustav Mahler to compose a work as unclassifiable as this one? Written between 1907 and 1908, a pivotal period in Mahler's life, The Song of the Earth occupies a special place within his oeuvre. It combines the “fin de siècle” spirit with the fascination for the exotic that was spreading amongst his peers at the time. Vienna was in turmoil when this music was composed, and the piece oscillates between the notions of farewell and new beginnings. With a lot of layers to peel back, The Song of the Earth definitely merits a closer look.
