Quite a few artists of African American background issue recitals of familiar material by Black composers, but violinist Randall Goosby's Roots is something different on several counts, and it's a fresh outing. First of all, Goosby mixes works by African American composers with those simply influenced by African American music, a seemingly simple idea, but how often does one hear Gershwin bumping up against William Grant Still? Second, his choices are not the obvious ones. Sure, there are some hits here, most prominently the excerpts from Gershwin's Porgy and Bess arranged by Jascha Heifetz. Goosby, a student of Itzhak Perlman, among others, nails these, but most of the music is not so common. The rapidly emerging Florence B. Price is represented by two works. William Grant Still's Suite for violin and piano is one of his most African American-inflected works, with a gorgeous slow movement. Perhaps the biggest find here is a contemporary piece, Blue/s Forms, of Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson (who is named after Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, also represented here). This solo violin work is a fascinating minimalist treatment of the blues unlike anything else out there. The finale is Dvořák's Violin Sonatina in G major, Op. 100, far less often heard than other works from the composer's American period, but fully their equal. Goosby is too closely miked here, but that is the end of the list of complaints about this fascinating and promising recital.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.

Sofia Coppola on Air

Beethoven: Fidelio's Big Adventure

Based on a story from France during the Revolutionary Terror (the story of an intrepid young woman who disguised herself as a man to save her husband from the dungeon), Beethoven's unique opera has had a turbulent life, and has been reworked here and there over the years. New proof of the German composer's musical genius, Fidelio also permitted him to write a musical setting for a libretto that matched his political beliefs.
