Ludwig Senfl was a major figure among musicians in the German renaissance; he was gainfully employed for many years as a court composer for Emperor Maximilian I and collaborated with Heinrich Isaac in compiling the massive Choralis Constantinus. After casting off his priestly frock to marry, Senfl was actively involved in editing manuscript music and working as a freelance composer. His contribution was valued by both the established Latin and emergent Reformation church, and large numbers of his works were preserved; Senfl's music is of such uniformly high quality that sometimes it can be hard to pinpoint what stands out. The Choir of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, led by David Skinner and joined by period brass group QuintEssential and harpist Andrew Lawrence-King, do a splendid job of assembling a strong program of Senfl in Obsidian's Ludwig Senfl: Missa Paschalis, Motetten & Lieder. The Missa Paschalis is not presented as a unit, but presented in two halves with a scattering of Senfl's songs, and one instrumental piece, in between. This must've been devised in order to avoid monotony and to spread the program out more evenly among the various kinds of pieces under consideration, but it probably would have been preferable to present the mass as a whole. Nevertheless, one can organize one's player to deliver it that way, and it is an attractive and appropriately devotional performance of the Missa Paschalis, with the voices blending very well with the period horns. One might have liked a bit more of the soprano voices, but the overall balance is fine. Senfl's songs, featuring King's harp and two vocal soloists, are much quieter than the choral music and one may want to jockey the volume a bit.

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.

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.

Bruno Walter, Memories of a Departed Legend

Listening to Bruno Walter’s recordings, in light of the splendid remastered editions published by Sony Classical, you tap into a truly humanistic culture. A tremendous conductor, music was his vocation, a way of life and an art of thought. His recordings have conserved his art vocal music, intense but never sentimental, thanks to a clear linearity complemented by a versatile rhythm, ensuring clarity, coherence and vigour.
