The music of Greek film and theater score composer Eleni Karaindrou draws on elements of classical music and jazz, and sometimes on traditional Greek music, but it's not easy to classify as any of these. Karaindrou relies on small ensembles, with or without a small orchestra, creating a distinctive timbre for each piece. The music is low-key, but it's a remarkably flexible language. With Karaindrou herself on piano, top-flight chamber players Kim Kashkashian on viola and Vangelis Christopoulos on oboe, and Jan Garbarek's saxophone providing subtle jazz accents, the music has a remarkable fluid quality. ECM's sound in this live recording is strikingly clear (you can hardly tell it's live, and there's no applause or audience noise), but the label's usual minimalist graphics are a bit annoying here; it would have been helpful to know exactly what scenes the pieces were intended for: although some of the material (like Tennessee Williams' play The Glass Menagerie) is well known, titles like Laura's Waltz are very general. Still, the music grows on you as its colors emerge on repeated hearings, and the musicians of the Camerata Orchestra under Alexandros Myrat play with both sheen and obvious enjoyment. This is apparently something of a retrospective of Karaindrou's work, and it makes you want to hear more of it.

Radu Lupu: an Understated Genius

Radu Lupu was a poet, magician and pianist who pursued the indescribable. The Romanian artist’s musical approach was brought to life by his tormented and fiercely introverted personality, which was always shrouded in mystery. When sat at his piano, he would knead the keys like dough, seeking a powerful, consistent sound. Radu Lupu passed away on the 17th of April 2022, leaving behind a relatively small, yet incredibly valuable, discographic legacy.

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.

Marc Ribot, the Anti-guitar Hero

For over thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.
