The piano etudes of Philip Glass were, like 19th century examples of the form, technical studies. Glass, in fact, wrote them over two decades as a way of improving his own piano skills. Yet they are also, like Chopin's etudes, little compositional studies that establish a set of parameters and explore it in a basic way. They offer the excellent means to come to grips with Glass' musical language, and they reveal the personalities of their performers more than most of his other compositions. Icelandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson emerged to acclaim as part of a joint recital of all 20 etudes at the Barbican in London, and his work here fulfills the promise shown. After an overture from Glassworks (1981), Ólafsson launches into a sequence of 11 etudes. He doesn't follow the original order, but this is all to the good: the Glass etudes are self-contained pieces, and his progression is convincing. Ólafsson's touch is light, sweeping, dreamy, and evocative of the mystical side of the composer's personality. He catches the logic of each etude as it unfolds the implications of the very simple material with which it begins. And he makes an unusual decision: one etude, and the opening Glassworks excerpt in a return appearance as a postlude, are "reworked" by Christian Badzura with the addition of a part for string quartet. Ólafsson's own notes don't offer any justification for this, and the forces in Glass' music are less optional than in that of his contemporaries. But it's strangely compelling, and after the especially lush "Etude No. 20" -- as good a place as any to start sampling -- the addition of the string quartet to the Glassworks music seems to take the mood to a higher plane. This is a very fine Glass recording, beautifully engineered in an Icelandic hall.

Nils Frahm, nuevas vías para el piano

Respetado tanto por los críticos de música clásica como por los aficionados a las sonoridades electrónicas, el talento de Nils Frahm concita unanimidad desde hace una década. Ya se sirva de un órgano de iglesia o de un sintetizador conectado a múltiples pedales de efectos, el pianista alemán mira siempre hacia el futuro y parece adelantarse a todos.

Bernard Haitink, profeta en su tierra

El gran director de orquesta holandés falleció el 21 de octubre de 2021 a la respetable edad de 92 años. Reconocido por sus compañeros de profesión y en su propio país desde su juventud, Bernard Haitink pasó la mayor parte de su inmensa carrera en los Países Bajos, primero dirigiendo la Orquesta de la Radio Holandesa y, después, la prestigiosa Concertgebouw de Ámsterdam durante veintisiete años, con la que grabó numerosos discos legendarios.
