This release by composer and pianist Danaë Xanthe Vlasse received a Grammy award for Best Classical Vocal Solo Performance, but it has also been reviewed in New Age publications and might just as easily fall into that genre. The album consists of a group of pieces (there is nothing that really makes them a single composition) for various forces, not all of them vocal, and recorded over a period of several years. The titles refer to various figures from Greek mythology, in a nod to Vlasse's Greek heritage. One might be hard-pressed to detect this without the textual indications; the pieces could serve pretty well as science fiction scores or music for a New Age retreat. This said, the harmonies of sopranos Hila Plitmann and Sangeeta Kaur are attractive, and the small chamber orchestra is held together by the periodic appearances of Vlasse's piano. The music gets points for variety and for being unlike anything else out there, except perhaps for Vlasse's previous compositions. The album offers a bit of an insight into what a U.S. West Coast audience might think of when the term "classical music" is used, and it's appealing on its own terms.

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.

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.

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.
