Péter Eötvös has led a varied career: as a composer of works for theater, film, and the concert hall; as a collaborator in electronic music with Karlheinz Stockhausen and Pierre Boulez; as the director of EnsembleInterContemporain for over a decade; and as a conductor, leading major orchestras around the world. Gliding, Eötvös' 2019 release on BMC, presents four orchestral pieces written in the early 21st century. The earliest is Jet Stream (2002), a trumpet concerto, here featuring Håkan Hardenberger as soloist, and this work was followed by The Gliding of the Eagle in the Skies (2011), Dialog mit Mozart (2016), and Alle vittime senza nome (2017), all reflecting aspects of experimental compositional techniques as well as a clear-headed appreciation of the orchestra's technical capabilities. As a practical matter, Eötvös has focused on what works in a given piece, and despite preconceptions of difficulty or inaccessibility because of his involvement in the European serialist avant-garde, Eötvös' music is quite approachable and enjoyable. His use of tone colors and chamber-like textures in an orchestral context reflects his hands-on education as a conductor. Just as Mahler honed his orchestration skills over his years as a conductor and composer, so too has Eötvös, and his performances with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony are meticulous and authoritative, showcasing his exceptional musicianship and thorough attentiveness to instrumental sonorities.

Nils Frahm, an Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.

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.

Danny Elfman in Ten Albums

From fairy tales to wacky comedies, from the most extraordinary orchestral works to understated pieces, for almost forty years now Danny Elfman has been crafting his unique sound and injecting it into Hollywood productions by the likes of Tim Burton or Gus Van Sant. We look back over ten albums from his career, exploring both his essential works and less well-known compositions.
