What a brilliant idea to couple J.S. Bach's Harpsichord Concerto in D minor, BWV 1052, with C.P.E. Bach's Harpsichord Concerto in D minor, H 427! Both works, the father's and the son's, are powerful works with emotional themes, dramatic forms, and cadenzas that only a virtuoso could play. Plus, for all their virtuoso display, both works are at heart deeply expressive works that refuse to pander to mere technique. Thankfully, in this 1981 recording by Gustav Leonhardt, both works have a champion who, for all his tremendous technique, is less interested in displaying it than in getting to the heart of the works' expressivity. Leonhardt had recorded the J.S. Bach Harpsichord Concerto before and he would record it again, but this recording is every bit as fine as the best of them. But this is Leonhardt's only recording of C.P.E. Bach's D minor concerto and he gives it the performance of a lifetime. For all its structural and harmonic strangeness, C.P.E.'s Sturm und Drang concerto sounds completely compelling and nearly as good as J.S.'s high Baroque concerto. Seon's original sound was rich and real, and Sony's digital remastering is every bit as rich, if not quite as real.

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.

Picasso, when painting meets music

Picasso's modernist genius swiftly stretched beyond the pictorial and spread into music and dance, two art forms with which the Spanish painter always maintained a close relationship, to the point of influencing composer friends he met along the way.
