Judged by the period instrumentation, the small orchestra of strings and continuo, the historically informed interpretations of violinists Shunske Sato and Zefira Valova, and the ensemble Il Pomo d'Oro, this recording of Johann Sebastian Bach's violin concertos will likely interest connoisseurs of performances in the Baroque style, as well as casual listeners. However, because the venue for this recording is extremely resonant and the audio seemingly boosted in the mix, a first impression is that the ensemble is twice as big as it really is, and that the textures are inadvertently muddied, neither of which is expected of a well-produced recording by early music standards. If listeners can get past the acoustics and actually hear the nuances in Sato's playing, as well as the ensemble's skillful but understated accompaniment, then the experience is at least pleasurable, if not as pristine as might be desired. Sato plays the Concerto No. 1 in A minor, BWV 1041 and the Concerto No. 2 in E major, BWV 1042, and is joined by Valova in the Concerto in D minor for two violins, BWV 1043. Also included is the reconstructed Concerto No. 5 in G minor, BWV 1056R, which is a transposed arrangement by Johann Nikolaus Forkel, based the Harpsichord Concerto No. 5 in F minor, BWV 1056, which in turn was probably based on a lost concerto for violin or oboe. Violinists have some flexibility in including this work, though Sato seems to have a special love for it, so his energy and emotional involvement sell it.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.

Bruno Walter, Memories of a Departed Legend

Listening to Bruno Walter’s recordings, in light of the splendid remastered editions published by Sony Classical, you tap into a truly humanistic culture. A tremendous conductor, music was his vocation, a way of life and an art of thought. His recordings have conserved his art vocal music, intense but never sentimental, thanks to a clear linearity complemented by a versatile rhythm, ensuring clarity, coherence and vigour.

Herbert Von Karajan and The Grand Masters of Classical Music

30 years after his death, the Austrian Herbert von Karajan (Salzbourg 1908 – Anif 1989) still embodies the musical conductor like no other. In charge of the Berlin Philharmonic for 35 years (1955-1989), Karajan helped to elevate the orchestra to a level of global prestige. Throughout his career, he methodically diversified his repertoire: from Beethoven, Brahms and Bruckner to Verdi, Wagner and Strauss…
