It’s difficult to resist such a prestigious title. In January 2020, John Williams, 87, returned to Vienna to head the Wiener Philharmoniker in the Soldener Saal of the Vienna Musikverein. In another era, the sound of this album would have matched the event in all its spectacle, grandeur, radiance and sheer detail. Nevertheless, hearing such well put-together, brilliantly orchestrated and colourful music (Close Encounters of the Third Kind, 1977, Spielberg, and Jaws, 1975, also Spielberg) remains a pleasure at all times. With fervent enthusiasm on Devil’s Dance from The Witches of Eastwick (George Miller, 1987), violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter displays all of her virtuosity (and incredibly complicated violin playing) here without fear for the ‘lack of taste’ that she is so often reproached for! We now hope the Wiener Philharmoniker continue their exploration of the Hollywood music discography with diligence, daring to take on Bernard Herrman, Erich Wolfang Korngold, Copland and others. © Pierre-Yves Lascar/Qobuz

The Earth’s Song: The World of Gustav Mahler

What could have prompted Gustav Mahler to compose a work as unclassifiable as this one? Written between 1907 and 1908, a pivotal period in Mahler's life, The Song of the Earth occupies a special place within his oeuvre. It combines the “fin de siècle” spirit with the fascination for the exotic that was spreading amongst his peers at the time. Vienna was in turmoil when this music was composed, and the piece oscillates between the notions of farewell and new beginnings. With a lot of layers to peel back, The Song of the Earth definitely merits a closer look.

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.

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.
