EMI Classics' reissue of Carlo Maria Giulini's recordings of Rossini overtures is a mainstay of the catalog, and it's hard to beat for its first-rate performances and affordability. The overtures to La scala di seta, Il signor Bruschino, Tancredi, L'italiana in Algeri, Il barbiere di Siviglia, La cenerentola, La gazza ladra, Semiramide, and Guillaume Tell are the most famous of Rossini's works, though most of the operas associated with them are rarely performed (and with the exception of the popular Il barbiere di Siviglia, seldom recorded). The interpretations are spot-on and the playing is as lively, vibrant, and exciting as can be expected of these popular concert pieces. Giulini and the Philharmonia Orchestra recorded the tracks on this disc in 1961 and 1965, and the stereo sound is extraordinary for the time, thanks to the careful preservation of the original master tapes. The compilation was digitally remastered in 2004, so the reproduction is as good as one might wish, with no discernable analog hiss or any loss of audio quality. This album is an excellent choice for beginners who are building a basic classical collection.

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.

Nelson Freire, a Humble Virtuoso

A child prodigy in his native country, the Brazilian pianist who passed away in November 2021 kept his distance from the noisy fanfare of fame. His enormous hands and his natural and virtuoso technique always assisted his full, powerful and mellow sound. Here Qobuz looks back at the career of a musician that for a long time was the “best-kept secret in the world of the piano”.

The Paradox of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Studio
