It’s difficult to resist such a prestigious title. In January 2020, John Williams, 87, returned to Vienna to head the Wiener Philharmoniker in the Soldener Saal of the Vienna Musikverein. In another era, the sound of this album would have matched the event in all its spectacle, grandeur, radiance and sheer detail. Nevertheless, hearing such well put-together, brilliantly orchestrated and colourful music (Close Encounters of the Third Kind, 1977, Spielberg, and Jaws, 1975, also Spielberg) remains a pleasure at all times. With fervent enthusiasm on Devil’s Dance from The Witches of Eastwick (George Miller, 1987), violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter displays all of her virtuosity (and incredibly complicated violin playing) here without fear for the ‘lack of taste’ that she is so often reproached for! We now hope the Wiener Philharmoniker continue their exploration of the Hollywood music discography with diligence, daring to take on Bernard Herrman, Erich Wolfang Korngold, Copland and others. © Pierre-Yves Lascar/Qobuz

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.

10 Versions of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique

As a proper manifesto of French romanticism, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique marked the 19th century as much as Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring impacted the 20th. Composed in Paris − which at the time was a global crucible for artistic creation − these two masterpieces catapulted musical language into another dimension. On December 5th, 1830 the revolutionary work of 27-year-old Hector Berlioz deeply moved the musicians present in the small room of the old academy of music, among whom were Meyerbeer and Liszt, who were impressed by the extraordinary audacity of this piece presented just three years after Beethoven’s death.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.
