Composer William Grant Still is almost invariably represented on orchestral programs by his Symphony No. 1 ("Afro-American"), but in his day he was championed by Stokowski and Rodzinski among others, and heard his works played by major symphony orchestras. The Fort Smith Symphony in Arkansas under conductor John Jeter has undertaken a complete cycle of Still's orchestral music, and the first thing to be pointed out about it is that this regional small-city ensemble sounds startlingly good. Still's subtle orchestration requires clean string and wind sections, and the Fort Smith players suggest an orchestra from a much bigger city. If there's fault to be found it's in the rather empty acoustic of Fort Smith's Best Corporation Performing Arts Center. But check out the gorgeous wind writing in the slow movements of both the Symphony No. 2 in G minor ("Song of a New Race") and Symphony No. 3 ("The Sunday Symphony"), where Still lightly inflects impressionist orchestral writing in an African-American direction. The wind section, and Jeter's control over them, is impressive here. What's attractive in both symphonies is Still's subtle incorporation of African-American idioms, which may creep in as a movement develops as a sort of comment or byway. The Symphony No. 1 is more obviously "African," but these later works have a unique lyrical charm. The opening Wood Notes, which here receives its world premiere, is the only clinker; it's heavily derivative of Dvorák, minus the good tunes. Otherwise this is a strong traversal of some neglected music and an album that, for all the hand-wringing about the state of classical music in the U.S., shows that it's alive and well in a small Southern city.

Los Grandes Angulares...
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.

Tim Burton en 10 álbumes

Ya sea con sus films en imagen real o de animación, recurriendo a la técnica de stop-motion, Tim Burton ha ido construyendo a lo largo de más de tres décadas un universo cinematográfico donde lo maravilloso y la poesía se amalgaman con lo gótico y el humor negro. Y, mayormente, ha sido el compositor Danny Elfman el encargado de acompañarle en esta aventura. Sin las imágenes de Burton, la música de Elfman no habría sido la misma, y lo mismo podría decirse al contrario. Como se sigue comprobando este 2019 gracias a la conmovedora Dumbo.

Steve Reich, animal minimal

Es uno de los pioneros de la música minimalista. Pero también uno de los compositores contemporáneos más asiduamente interpretados. A los 80 años, Steve Reich ha alcanzado estatus de gurú incontestable con enorme influencia en varias hornadas de músicos, incluidos los de la esfera techno. Su evolución personal, su relación con el jazz o con las músicas étnicas, pero también la transmisión de su legado de una generación a la siguiente: el neoyorquino se expresa sin pelos en la lengua.
