It is striking that two of the true classics in English orchestral music were composed within the short space of some fifteen years around the turn of the previous century. Edward Elgar's Enigma Variations have charmed as well as fascinated listeners since the first performance in 1899. In 14 remarkably diverse variations Elgar demonstrates his compositional mastery while creating miniature portraits of his closest friends, as well as of his wife and himself. By turns gentle, idyllic, tempestuous and boisterous, the pieces which often run seamlessly into each other nevertheless make up a coherent whole, like a group portrait taken during a country weekend.
In 1916 Gustav Holst completed another set of musical character sketches his suite The Planets, in seven movements. These have little to do with astronomy and even less with the Roman deities whose names they carry. Holst was rather inspired by astrology and the suite actually concerns human character as influenced by the planets.

BIS

Lorsqu’en 1973 Robert von Bahr créa le label Bis, il ne se doutait pas qu’il initiait une véritable révolution discographique. Armé de son seul savoir-faire, ce jeune ingénieur du son suédois proposait en effet des enregistrements d’une qualité inédite. Cette expertise technique séduisit rapidement les plus grands interprètes. S’instaurait ainsi une collaboration fructueuse entre art et artisanat qui donna lieu à de véritables monuments discographiques : les cantates de Bach par Suzuki, l'intégrale Sibelius réalisée à Lahti par Osmo Vänskä, les anthologies de musiques sud-américaines dédiés à Camargo Guarnieri, Francesco Mignone… Parallèlement, von Bahr et ses treize c...
