Mozart and Strauss would seem to be unlikely companions for a CD, especially such divergent genres as a violin concerto (Mozart's K. 219) and a symphony (Strauss' Symphonia Domestica). Indeed, these two compositions share little in common. The unifying point for the Audite album is conductor Vladimir Ashkenazy, who claims a passion for both of these composers. Ashkenazy approaches both works on the program with an equal balance of intellectual acumen and emotional enlightenment. The result for listeners is a performance -- particularly of the Strauss -- which allows the score to speak for itself without the conductor attempting to place undue importance on any programmatic after-thoughts. The DSO Berlin responds to Ashkenazy's leadership with close attention to articulation, balance, and intonation. The one mismatched component on the album, surprisingly, is violinist Pinchas Zukerman and his performance of the Mozart A major Concerto. While Ashkenazy's interpretation is very supple and elegant, Zukerman plays with a great deal of force and pressure. The live recording lets listeners hear (unfortunately) a great deal of production noise from his instrument as he unnecessarily strains to be heard over the orchestra, which does a splendid job of keeping the tone quiet during solo passages. Despite many successful collaborations in the past, this particular pairing of Ashkenazy and Zukerman is not as satisfying as it could be. Ashkenazy's Strauss, however, is comprehensive and thoroughly enjoyable.

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.

The Paradox of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Studio

Esa-Pekka Salonen is an acclaimed finnish conductor and prolific composer. With over 60 albums under his belt, he has heavily contributed to the history of musical interpretation. This is an interview with an exceptional musician, who discusses his unique approach to working on classical music in the studio.

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.
