Why the devil the cover of this superbe Vivaldi album sports a doctored photo of a car built in Torino between 1957 and 1975, whereas these double concertos were written around 250 years earlier for Venice, nobody knows. But the result remains a miracle, and a triple miracle too : first, that the recording could take place since it has been sponsored by crowdfunding ; second, that the instrumental quality of La Serenissima and the soloists is so exquisite ; and third, that Vivaldi wrote so many highly original double concertos, some of which for « odd » couples – oboe and bassoon, violin and cello etc. –, others for pairs such as two oboes, two horns (a great rarity in these times). The album, after half a dozen double concertos, ends with another rarity : the Concerto per S.A.S.I.S.P.G.M.D.G.S.M.B. – yes, that’s the very title given by Vivaldi himself. Far from being a simple double concerto, is is one for three duets – two horns, two oboes, violin-cello, plus an additional bassoon – in which the composer explores all imaginable arrangements between groups. Whoever said, a few decades ago, that Vivaldi had written the same lame concerto five hundred times again and again (yes, Mr Stravinsky, that’s you we’re talking about) had no idea of what was available in the Vivaldian treasure trove. Ah yes, and as for the cryptic title : the hypothesis per Sua Altezza Serenissima il Signor Principe Giuseppe Maria de’ Gonzaga (or else di Guastalla) Signor Moi Benignissimo seems at least credible… © SM/Qobuz

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.

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.

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.
