The young pianist Sophie Pacini has been touted as the next big thing by Martha Argerich, something that should make you sit up and take notice. The evidence from this album is positive. The pairing of Beethoven and Liszt, the Viennese theme-worker and the exotic Parisian showman, is not that common today, but it certainly would have been in Liszt's own time, and Liszt might easily have played this exact program (and enjoyed the way Pacini plays it). Pacini opens with the Beethoven Piano Sonata No. 21 in C major, Op. 53 ("Waldstein"), given a detailed reading that isolates all the sixteenth notes and emphasizes the work's poetic qualities, as if to whet the appetite for the fireworks to come. And come they do, although this is rather poetic Liszt itself, not the keyboard-pounding stuff. Again, this is something with which Liszt would have had no problem. Pacini's strength lies in capturing the breadth of Liszt's conceptions, which would have seemed as amazing as his keyboard heroics to listeners of his own time. Sample the relatively rarely recorded transcription of the Overture to Wagner's Tannhäuser, which shows you something both of Liszt's pianism and of Pacini's. With fine sound from the Sendesaal Bremen, Warner Classics propels its young find to the front of the pack of new pianists.

The Song of the Earth: 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.

Scriabin's Flamboyant Raptures

Somewhat overshadowed today by his compatriots Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky and Rachmaninov, Alexander Scriabin is nonetheless a key figure in Russian music. At the beginning of the 20th century, the composer and virtuoso pianist broke away from the Romantic legacy to offer a unique and innovative musical language which no one would follow. His work, deeply influenced by mystical philosophy and synaesthesia, would undergo a dazzling evolution in barely two decades, interrupted by his premature death at the age of 43.
