In the work of Peter Maxwell Davies, the traditions of the British pastoralists and of Sibelius (almost a British composer for the critical role that country played in putting his music into the canon) potentially seem reconciled to modernist trends. Whether you'll find the Symphony No. 3 a good example of that reconciliation is probably a matter of taste, but the reappearance of this recording will be welcome for Maxwell Davies fans. The album was originally issued in 1994 on the small Collins Classics label; Naxos reissued it in 2012. The Symphony No. 3 itself was written in 1984 and premiered by another conductor; the composer's decision to record it again, leading the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, was perhaps born of a decision to set the record straight, so to speak. The work's outer slow movements are massive and often lugubrious. They have long-range harmonic schemes, combined with a set of proportions supposedly derived from Renaissance architecture (good luck hearing these, and note that some of the Renaissance music thought to be based on architectural proportions has turned out not to be, after all). Midway through the work, Maxwell Davies says in his notes, he realized he was really writing about the seascapes that inhabit some of his other works, and those by so many other British composers besides. Does it work? It's heavy stuff, but it's both evocative in the small scale and absorbing in its larger design. The small folkish suite Cross Lane Fair, brand new at the time of the original recording, wraps up the album on a happier note, and you couldn't ask for performances that more competently reflect the composer's intentions.

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.

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.

Steve Reich belongs to that very small circle of composers who can claim to have changed the face of contemporary music over the last fifty years. Qobuz presents a selection of ten of the most important works from his catalogue.
