Between 2010 and 2013, Coro released Claudio Monteverdi's Selva Morale e Spirituale in three volumes, performed with scrupulous technique and polished sound by Harry Christophers and The Sixteen. Published in 1641, this anthology of sacred music ranks second only to Monteverdi's Vespro della Beata Vergine of 1610 as a comprehensive survey of the various styles and forms that he employed and the innovations he brought to Baroque music. The set includes single-voice motets, madrigals, instrumental pieces, mass movements, psalms, and multiple settings of the Salve Regina and the Magnificat, representing both the prima pratica of Renaissance counterpoint and the seconda pratica that comprised Monteverdi's novel techniques, which included solo vocal music set to homophonic accompaniment, the use of basso continuo, and the expansion of tonality and harmony for heightened expressions. The three albums are packaged in a cardboard slip cover, with no additional concessions to collectability, and the discs have been reissued without changes. Even so, this is a terrific package for marking the 450th anniversary of Monteverdi's birth, and The Sixteen's performances are transparent in texture and glorious in sonority, thanks in part to the high-quality recording in St. John's, Smith Square (Vol. 1) and St. Silas the Martyr, Kentish Town, London (Vols. 2 and 3).

Undervalued: a Look Back on Female Composers

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho and Clara Schumann, several women have managed to break through the macho codes of the milieu and become composers. While the classical music landscape has been largely dominated by men in recent centuries, the work of their female colleagues, whether pioneers or contemporaries, is just as fascinating. Here we put eleven undervalued figures of female composition in the spotlight.

Glenn Gould, Extravaganza

How can I describe – let alone define – this truly one-of-a-kind pianist? As an alien, perhaps. An alien who whisks us away at supersonic speed before slowing down to land on an infinite world where there is time for everything. It is the acceptance and cultivation of his otherness (or his alienness?) that has made this unconventional pianist one of the greatest and most loved (and criticised) musicians ever.
