This is about as appealing a disc of Rachmaninov's complete preludes for piano as one is likely to hear, but its impact may not be immediately evident. That caveat might at first seem a bit odd considering the first piece here is the famous Prélude in C sharp minor, one of the best known, as well as one of the loudest works the Russian composer ever penned, and one might reasonably expect that it would start the disc off with a bang. But Russian pianist Boris Berezovsky takes another approach to the work; rather than starting with the climax and trying vainly to get bigger and louder from there, he builds slowly and purposefully to a shattering climax that not only makes the performance, but redeems the piece from a century of brutal mistreatment. Berezovsky continues that approach throughout his performances, carefully and scrupulously sculpting each prelude, yet never skimping on passion, power, and energy, and ultimately delivering an effective and exciting set of performances. Though the digital sound of this 2004 recording is not quite as clear as it could be, it does have tremendous impact.

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.

10 Versions of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique

As a proper manifesto of French romanticism, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique marked the 19th century as much as Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring impacted the 20th. Composed in Paris − which at the time was a global crucible for artistic creation − these two masterpieces catapulted musical language into another dimension. On December 5th, 1830 the revolutionary work of 27-year-old Hector Berlioz deeply moved the musicians present in the small room of the old academy of music, among whom were Meyerbeer and Liszt, who were impressed by the extraordinary audacity of this piece presented just three years after Beethoven’s death.
