Alfred Schnittke's polystylism was part of the wave of post-modernism that swept through music in the last quarter of the 20th century, and his Symphony No. 3 is one of the most salient examples of this practice. The symphony is cast in the traditional four movements, though the outer movements are marked with slower tempos than the inner movements, so the conventional symphonic framework appears to have been turned inside-out. Yet the most surprising aspect of this work is Schnittke's freewheeling display of various historical and modern styles without using direct quotations, instead employing signifiers in the form of musical spellings (e.g., the name B-A-C-H spelled out in pitches). This indicates that Schnittke had chosen more abstract content than he had used in earlier quotation-laden works. This audiophile recording by Vladimir Jurowski and the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin provides a first-rate explication of Schnittke's method, in part because of the extraordinary sound of the multichannel recording, but also because of the compelling performance, which holds the listener's attention from beginning to end. PentaTone's reproduction creates a spacious audio field where myriad details are clearly separated, so the musical events are easy to sort out, even in the densest passages. A score may still be necessary to tease out the symphony's deeper mysteries, which are manifold, but Jurowski and his orchestra have given a performance that may be definitive for some time to come.

The modernist genius of Picasso quickly went beyond the pictorial frame to irradiate music and dance, two arts with which the Spanish painter has always had a close relationship, even influencing his composer friends met along the way.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.

Nils Frahm, An Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.
