Internationally prominent violinist and conductor Gidon Kremer has sometimes championed music from his native Latvia. Of the composers heard here, he has performed and recorded the music of Georgs Pelēcis several times. Here Kremer, with his Kremerata Baltica and more local Kremerata Lettonica, offers an all-Latvian program that has an attractive kind of coherence, and the players seem energetic and fully committed to the music. All three of the composers, whose names all happen to begin with the letter P, have styles rooted in Baltic minimalism, but each inflects the general trend in a different way, with the Ground for Double Bass of Kristaps Pētersons reducing it to essentials. Listeners to the three-movement Fiori Musicali of Pelēcis who are unfamiliar with this composer may find this work a delightful revelation. The most diatonic of the works on the program, it begins with broad neo-Romantic music in a sentimental vein but gradually evolves into quite something else. The work certainly would hold its own on a program with Glass or Reich, and Kremer's release, in general, exposes valuable music not in common circulation. The sound from Latvian Radio's Riga Recording Studio is excellent.

Martha Argerich: The Untameable Pianist

For over 60 years the Argentinian pianist Martha Argerich has amazed audiences all over the world with her wild, impulsive playing and her constant risk-taking, overcoming every technical difficulty by turning each of her performances into a fascinating journey.

Radu Lupu: an Understated Genius

Radu Lupu was a poet, magician and pianist who pursued the indescribable. The Romanian artist’s musical approach was brought to life by his tormented and fiercely introverted personality, which was always shrouded in mystery. When sat at his piano, he would knead the keys like dough, seeking a powerful, consistent sound. Radu Lupu passed away on the 17th of April 2022, leaving behind a relatively small, yet incredibly valuable, discographic legacy.

The Song of the Earth: 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.
