Recorded between 1956 and 1962, these performances represent the core repertoire of French Romantic music that Paul Paray explored during his tenure with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. A comprehensive collection that includes essential masterpieces along with several works that have fallen by the wayside, this five-disc set offers more than most listeners will want. Even so, a few will find it educational and enjoyable for its unusual contents and for the DSO's vigorous playing. Paray's energetic, vibrant reading of Saint-Saëns' Symphony No. 3 in C minor, "Organ," holds up quite well, even by contemporary standards; and the renditions of Bizet's Carmen and L'Arlésienne Suites are more exciting and theatrical than many other later recordings, which boast better sound but lack true drama. One may pick and choose among the less fashionable works by Barraud, Auber, Thomas, Hérold, and Lalo, and even find Paray's own Mass for the 500th Anniversary of the Death of Joan of Arc a bit tedious. But fans of Paray's conducting and buffs of historical recordings will relish this set's "time-capsule" quality, and gladly accept its eccentricities. The acoustics of Ford Auditorium, Old Orchestra Hall, and Cass Technical High School vary considerably, but Mercury has remastered these extraordinary recordings well and balanced the sound admirably.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.

Martha Argerich: The Untameable Pianist

For over 60 years the Argentinian pianist Martha Argerich has amazed audiences all over the world with her wild, impulsive playing and her constant risk-taking, overcoming every technical difficulty by turning each of her performances into a fascinating journey.

Strauss & Kempe: Elective Affinities

The name of conductor Rudolf Kempe (1910-1976) is indissociable from those of composer Richard Strauss and the Dresden Staatskapelle orchestra. As Warner is now re-releasing the recordings made between 1970 and 1975, Qobuz is putting the spotlight on the Straussian legacy of a precise, often incisive conductor, who always paid the greatest attention to the text and its charms.
