Big-hearted, open-hearted, warm-hearted, take your pick: whatever its other attributes, Carlo Maria Giulini's 1975 recording of Beethoven's Missa Solemnis with the London Philharmonic Orchestra & Chorus has a heart as big as all outdoors. Under Giulini's tender hands, the Missa Solemnis is above all else a lyrical work, a work where every line sings and every instrument is a voice. One gets the sense that Giulini loves every note and every musician and every moment of the performance, and his affection transforms his Missa Solemnis into a festival of love. This is, of course, a good thing and pretty much what Beethoven was driving at when he said of the Missa Solemnis that it "comes from the heart," but love is not all there is to the work. And while Giulini's Missa Solemnis has a lot of heart, it doesn't have much else going for it. Which is not to say that it is not superbly sung and played; Giulini's British musicians give him their best. It is to say that the work is not all there. The profound soulfulness, the transcendent spirituality, the overwhelming sense that the numinous is imminent: all of it and everything is drowned in Giulini's sea of love. As heartfelt as Giulini's is, stick with Otto Klemperer's 1965 recording, one of the most sublime recordings ever made. EMI's stereo sound was a little dim and distant in its day and the digital remastering is only a little better.

Bernard Haitink, a Prophet in his Own Land

The great Dutch conductor who died recently at the venerable age of 92 proved the old adage wrong. Recognised by his peers throughout his own country from his youth, Bernard Haitink spent most of his vast career in the Netherlands, first conducting the Dutch Radio Orchestra and then the prestigious Concertgebouw in Amsterdam for 27 years, with whom he made many legendary recordings for PHILIPS, DECCA and EMI CLASSICS, including more than 450 recordings of a wide range of composers, among which Bruckner and Mahler enjoy pride of place.

Scriabin's Flamboyant Raptures

Somewhat overshadowed today by his compatriots Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky and Rachmaninov, Alexander Scriabin is nonetheless a key figure in Russian music. At the beginning of the 20th century, the composer and virtuoso pianist broke away from the Romantic legacy to offer a unique and innovative musical language which no one would follow. His work, deeply influenced by mystical philosophy and synaesthesia, would undergo a dazzling evolution in barely two decades, interrupted by his premature death at the age of 43.

This is an interview with an exceptional musician, who discusses his unique approach to working on classical music in the studio.
