Some of Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky's most beloved music can be found in his three great ballets, which have become familiar to audiences in complete performances, as well as variously configured suites and arrangements. This hybrid SACD by pianists Mari Kodama and Momo Kodama offers transcriptions for piano duo by Sergey Rachmaninov, Anton Arensky, Eduard Leontyevich Langer, and Claude Debussy, which capture the brilliance and beauty of the original versions. One is struck by the faithfulness of the arrangers, who eschewed pyrotechnics in favor of accurately re-creating Tchaikovsky's music, and the keyboard versions often bring the orchestral sonorities and textures to mind. The selections also recommend themselves because of their tunefulness and accessibility, and it's likely that listeners will instantly recognize most of the pieces. For sampling, try the famous Adagio from Sleeping Beauty, the sparkling Overture from Nutcracker, or the Dance of the Cygnets from Swan Lake. The playing by the Kodama sisters is meticulous and finely polished, but their liveliness and virtuosity bring the music across with considerable excitement and a feeling of pure enjoyment.

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.

The Little Tramp: The Great Composer

As the Paris Philharmonic puts on a major exhibition dedicated entirely to his career, it’s the perfect opportunity to take a look back at Charlie Chaplin’s close ties with music. He may be famous as a legendary performer and director, but the man with the iconic bowler hat and cane also composed the music in his films himself.

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.
