Born in Osaka, raised in Paris, educated at the Conservatoire National in Paris, and a student of Tatiana Nikolayeva and Alfred Brendel, Mari Kodama certainly has a distinctive pedigree. And with this, her fourth disc in a planned cycle of all Beethoven's sonatas, Kodama makes her bid to compete with her illustrious teachers. But while one cannot fault her polished technique or emotional playing, Kodama's Beethoven is not yet ready to join benchmark recordings by Schnabel, Kempff, Brendel, and others on the top shelf. Kodama's chosen repertoire is taken from the earliest of Beethoven's published sonatas, the three from Opus 2, but she plays them with an interpretive weight more appropriate to the more substantial later sonatas. The opening F minor Sonata has the relentless strength of the Tempest Sonata in its closing Prestissimo, the central A major Sonata has the unflagging intensity of the Appassionata Sonata in its central Largo, and the closing C major Sonata has the emotional weight of the Waldstein Sonata, especially in its ecstatic conclusion. These are fine qualities on the surface, but the relatively light content of the early sonatas does not yield them naturally, and Kodama appears to be reaching to create weight and solemnity where elegance and wit might be more appropriate. Super audio digital sound puts Kodama and her Steinway in the room with the listener.

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.

The Paradox of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Studio

Esa-Pekka Salonen is an acclaimed finnish 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.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.
