This recording may be aimed primarily at Shostakovich fans: the Symphony No. 1 in F minor, Op. 10, written when the composer was 19, is not terribly often recorded, and the four shorter pieces that follow it are rarer still. But the music can stand on its own for general listeners. The symphony is an entertaining four-movement work, but it may be the weakest of the group in the rather calm performance by Spanish conductor Gustavo Gimeno, leading the Orchestre Philharmonique de Luxembourg. The rest of the music, though, presents an excellent overview of Shostakovich's early development. The jocular Scherzo for orchestra in F sharp minor, Op. 1, and Scherzo for orchestra in E flat major, Op. 7, make an instructive pair: the earlier work contains hints of the edgy Shostakovich humor, and the E flat Scherzo presents it full-blown. The most conservative work on the program is the Theme and variations for orchestra in B flat major, Op. 3, a student exercise that sounds like Tchaikovsky. The Five Fragments for orchestra, Op. 42, played without a break, are tonally daring pieces of the kind that got the composer in hot water in the 1930s, and they're well worth revival. The performances are clean throughout, attractive for those who prefer their Shostakovich without too much of a Russian vein, and generally this is a strong choice for a good shelf or hard drive of Shostakovich.

The Paradox of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Studio

Mason Bates' weird and wonderful electronic symphonies

What do you mean, you haven’t heard about Mason Bates (yet)? He is one of the hottest names on the North-American music scene. Born in 1977, Bates is a symphonic and lyrical composer as well as an electro DJ (under the alias DJ Masonic) – two completely opposing genres which he takes great delight in mixing. Around half of his symphonic and lyrical work consists, in one way or another, of electronic sounds. The majority of these sounds are “every day sounds”, which are prerecorded and later put into a score. On the release date of his brilliant opera The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, Qobuz interviewed this extraordinary person.

Nino Rota directed by Giuseppe Grazioli

Four years ago, Decca issued the first volume of Nino Rota’s complete orchestral works, directed by Giuseppe Grazioli. Between the recent release of the fifth opus (with La Strada as a main driver) and the preparation for the sixth, we met with the Milanese conductor to learn more about this fascinating, gigantic and essential endeavour.
