After having recorded and performed all thirty-two of Beethoven’s Sonatas in concert, Mari Kodama, the Japanese pianist who grew up in Paris and was a student of Geneviève Joy-Dutilleux has now made a rather original contribution to the “Year of Beethoven”, with a selection of relatively unknown transcriptions, almost all of which are first recordings.

This anthology includes piano interpretations of excerpts from Beethoven’s five string quartets in the style of the arrangements in vogue in the 18th and 19th centuries, which delighted many amateur musicians in private settings at a time when music only circulated through practice. Of course, these types of transcriptions are in great abundance, which Cyprien Katsaris demonstrated most tenaciously in his "A Chronological Odyssey" (Piano 21). Yet, what makes Mari Kodama’s choices so special here is that they have all been interpreted by Saint-Saëns, Balakirev and Moussorgski, who each added a little of their personality to the great maestro’s music.

The grand finale of the album is a special treat as the last tracks are variations of Mozart’s Quintet with clarinet K. 581 in a transcription for fortepiano that was attributed to Beethoven and first published in Edinburgh in 1812 under the name of “ A Wonderful aria with variations of Mozart by Lewis van Beethoven”. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.

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.

Bruno Walter, Memories of a Departed Legend

Listening to Bruno Walter’s recordings, in light of the splendid remastered editions published by Sony Classical, you tap into a truly humanistic culture. A tremendous conductor, music was his vocation, a way of life and an art of thought. His recordings have conserved his art vocal music, intense but never sentimental, thanks to a clear linearity complemented by a versatile rhythm, ensuring clarity, coherence and vigour.
