Had this been a conventional CD release, Mikhail Pletnev's studio recording of Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6 in B minor, "Pathétique," might have stood out as an excellent rendition of this extremely popular work, but like too many comparable recordings on the glutted market, it might have been lost in the shuffle. What makes it considerably more noticeable and desirable is the DSD recording and the hybrid-SACD format, which make it a stunner. The "Pathétique" is so familiar and beloved of audiences that it is easy to treat it casually, like aural wallpaper. But this 2011 PentaTone release makes the symphony sound utterly revitalized and refreshed, so listening to all the details and dimensions of the Russian National Orchestra's playing is a pleasure, and not an obligation. A work as perennial and, yes, timeworn as this piece can only benefit from the audiophile treatment, and the multichannel reproduction is as spacious, lush, and visceral as any live performance, bringing across full sonorities, vibrant bass lines, rich timbres, and cutting attacks. Pletnev also includes the Capriccio Italien as filler, a sunny piece that brightens the mood after the dark depression of the symphony, so this is a well-balanced program, in addition to being a sonic spectacular.

The Paradox of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Studio

Esa-Pekka Salonen is an acclaimed finish conductor and prolific composer. With over 60 albums under his belt, he has heavily contributed to the history of musical interpretation. This is an interview with an exceptional musician, who discusses his unique approach to working on classical music in the studio.

Women Composers: A Secret History

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho, music history has been marked by female figures who “dared” to write music. Is creation a male privilege? Our sound museum does hold more well-known and recognised male than female composers. Yet their works are no less exciting and there is absolutely no reason for them to play second fiddle, or be ignored altogether. Below, you’ll find a defence and illustration of female composition works through eleven musical portraits.

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.
