A very light but very lovely disc of mid-twentieth century violin concertos, this 1996 recording by Joshua Bell with David Zinman directing the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra coupling the concertos of Samuel Barber and William Walton along with Baal Shem, the concerto-in-all-but-in-name by Ernest Bloch, may be for younger listeners a first choice among digital recordings. American virtuoso Bell possesses the kind of agile technique, sweet tone, and easy elegance that make him an ideal soloist for these works. His Barber sings, his Bloch wails, and his Walton goes beyond the work's achingly glorious lyricism to its melancholic core. And while the Baltimore Symphony may not be one of the best-known American orchestras, under the astute and alert leadership of Zinman it has both the polish and power to support Bell with style and flair. Some older listeners may recall with fondness Stern's radiant performance of the Barber concerto and Heifetz's mercurial performance of Walton's concerto, but even old timers may concede that Bell's lighter performances are possibly more lovely -- and perhaps just as successful. Decca's digital sound is close and clear, but deep and full.

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.

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.

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.
