Much of James MacMillan's orchestral music is concerned with matters of Christian theology, and his concerto for percussion and orchestra, Veni, Veni, Emmanuel, may be counted among his most religiously inspired pieces. Outwardly, though, it is ambiguous and difficult to distinguish from purely secular music. Since all of MacMillan's motives and chords are derived from the plainchant hymn for Advent, some will listen for its permutations in the complex network of overlapping fragments. Others will be more interested in the elaborate percussion part, which Evelyn Glennie brings off with ferocious virtuosity and potent force -- always front and center, and fully audible, even when the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, under Jukka-Pekka Saraste, is at its loudest and most strident. The remaining selections on this CD are more personally quirky, mundane, and decidedly less cosmic in scope. After the Tryst, ...as others see us..., Dawn Rituals, and Untold are variously ironic, mysterious, sentimental, and whimsical. Selected members of the SCO, conducted here by the composer, play these chimerical pieces with abundant enthusiasm and involvement; but MacMillan's chamber music is too desultory and unfocused to compete with the dynamic Veni, Veni, Emmanuel. Originally recorded and released in 1993, this 2004 reissue has exceptional sound quality.

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.

Scriabin's Flamboyant Raptures

Somewhat overshadowed today by his compatriots Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky and Rachmaninov, Alexander Scriabin is nonetheless a key figure in Russian music. At the beginning of the 20th century, the composer and virtuoso pianist broke away from the Romantic legacy to offer a unique and innovative musical language which no one would follow. His work, deeply influenced by mystical philosophy and synaesthesia, would undergo a dazzling evolution in barely two decades, interrupted by his premature death at the age of 43.

The Paradox of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Studio

Esa-Pekka Salonen is an acclaimed finnish conductor and prolific composer. With over 60 albums under his belt, he has heavily contributed to the history of musical interpretation. This is an interview with an exceptional musician, who discusses his unique approach to working on classical music in the studio.
