Antonín Dvorák's Symphony No. 8 in G major, Op. 88, with its peppy, very Czech finale theme with the blaring horns, is generally taken to be among his most genial works. But that's not how the composer himself saw it. He said his intention was "to write a work different from my other symphonies, with individual ideas worked out in a new manner." Critics at the time got this, positively or negatively, and it's the work's formal variety that comes under the scrutiny of conductor Claus Peter Flor in this BIS release. BIS has had good luck recording out-of-the-Western-mainstream Southeast Asian orchestras, and they continue the streak here with Flor's Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, a group that was founded in 1997 and provides hope for the future of the core classical repertory to anyone who is looking for it. There is nothing in the playing to indicate that you are not listening to an orchestra from a major European city. But it's Flor's quick, astringent readings that are the real news. The fuzzy nationalist sentiment that has been attached to Dvorák's music ever since the beginnings of his popularity in England and America is generally weeded out. The result confirms the comparison of the work by annotator Jean-Pascal Vachon to Mahler's Symphony No. 1 ("Titan"): Dvorák's work comes across as a panorama of scenes slightly distantly observed. It's a fascinating take on the work. You may miss the warmth, and when you listen to the more explicitly programmatic tone poem Zlaty Kolovrat (The Golden Spinning Wheel), Op. 109, you may miss some evocativeness. But there's no shortage of recordings of this work, and a really fresh one certainly deserves a hearing. Another bonus is the comparatively rare Scherzo capriccioso, Op. 66, which rings down the curtain. The music was well recorded at the orchestra's home, the Dewan Philharmonic PETRONAS hall in Kuala Lumpur (Muddy Confluence).

The Earth’s Song: 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.

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.

Marc Ribot, the Anti-guitar Hero

For over thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.
