Of all of the works written by Camille Saint-Saëns for cello and orchestra, the ones most frequently heard are those undertaken primarily by students: the First Concerto and the Op. 43 Allegro Appassionato. Though many professional artists have also recorded these somewhat rudimentary pieces, it really takes something special to make them sell with listeners. On the other end of the spectrum are the Second Concerto and the D minor Suite. Far from student works, these two compositions not only demand intense technical prowess, but also keen musical insights capable of guiding listeners through their much more abstract musings. Enter cellist Johannes Moser. His performance of the First Concerto with the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra is exceptionally dynamic, employing almost unheard of vitality and brisk tempos, free use of rubato, and sense of purpose. Equally impressive is his execution of the much more difficult Second Concerto and D minor Suite, in which Moser takes listeners by the hand and guides them every step of the way through these two sometimes under-appreciated works. His technique and intonation are rock solid, and his control of timing, pacing, and dynamics yield a wholly satisfying musical experience. Moser's tone is pure and penetrating in the higher registers and deep and throaty on his G and C strings. The Stuttgart RSO provides a brilliantly effervescent backdrop, never getting in the way of soloist.

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.

Beethoven: Fidelio's Big Adventure

Based on a story from France during the Revolutionary Terror (the story of an intrepid young woman who disguised herself as a man to save her husband from the dungeon), Beethoven's unique opera has had a turbulent life, and has been reworked here and there over the years. New proof of the German composer's musical genius, Fidelio also permitted him to write a musical setting for a libretto that matched his political beliefs.
