Continuing PentaTone's brilliant super audio series of the music dramas of Richard Wagner, Marek Janowski, and the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra present Die Walküre in a thoroughly compelling performance that has stunning multichannel sound. Previous releases in this critically praised series have shown some variability in the reproduction of the live performances, and this 2012 concert reading at the Berlin Philharmonie shows some problems in the direction and volume levels of the voices, but these are perhaps the only weaknesses in what is otherwise a strong rendition. Some members of the cast are by now familiar names to listeners who have followed this series. With Tomasz Konieczny as Wotan, Iris Vermillion as Fricka, PentaTone stalwart Robert Dean Smith as Siegmund, and featuring Petra Lang as Brünnhilde, the leads deliver solid characterizations and their singing rises to the high standards of the previous installments. Also important in the overall excellence of the recording is the riveting playing of the Berlin orchestra, which is fully present, vibrant, and sure to please fans who have enjoyed this ensemble's tremendous range of timbres, attacks, and dynamics. While this Walküre may not replace the cherished historical recordings of older collectors, it is a remarkable achievement for a modern Wagner production, and all the more stunning for being only the second of the four Ring operas to be released by this label in 2013. As a celebration of Wagner's bicentennial year, this recording and its companions are a handsome tribute and well worth exploring.

Album Description

Continuing PentaTone's brilliant super audio series of the music dramas of Richard Wagner, Marek Janowski, and the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra present Die Walküre in a thoroughly compelling performance that has stunning multichannel sound. Previous releases in this critically praised series have shown some variability in the reproduction of the live performances, and this 2012 concert reading at the Berlin Philharmonie shows some problems in the direction and volume levels of the voices, but these are perhaps the only weaknesses in what is otherwise a strong rendition. Some members of the cast are by now familiar names to listeners who have followed this series. With Tomasz Konieczny as Wotan, Iris Vermillion as Fricka, PentaTone stalwart Robert Dean Smith as Siegmund, and featuring Petra Lang as Brünnhilde, the leads deliver solid characterizations and their singing rises to the high standards of the previous installments. Also important in the overall excellence of the recording is the riveting playing of the Berlin orchestra, which is fully present, vibrant, and sure to please fans who have enjoyed this ensemble's tremendous range of timbres, attacks, and dynamics. While this Walküre may not replace the cherished historical recordings of older collectors, it is a remarkable achievement for a modern Wagner production, and all the more stunning for being only the second of the four Ring operas to be released by this label in 2013. As a celebration of Wagner's bicentennial year, this recording and its companions are a handsome tribute and well worth exploring.

Gounod: the Romantic, the Mystic

A major artisan of the renaissance in French music in the second half of the 19th century, alongside his elder colleague Berlioz, whom he admired, and his followers Bizet, Saint-Saëns, and Massenet, who were inspired by his faith in Art, Charles Gounod (1818-1893), a mystic and a charmer, a romantic in search of a new classicism, owed his fame to a few masterpieces, which have overshadowed his daring. A flourishing discography allows us to discover the diversity of his music: instrumental, vocal, religious, and lyrical.

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.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.
