This isn't exactly the Artemis Quartett's first recording of any Beethoven quartets -- there was a disc attached to a BBC Magazine in 2003 with recordings of Beethoven's Opus 18 No. 2 and Opus 131. But for a quartet whose previous major-label experience has consisted of three discs -- one of György Ligeti, one of Dimitri Terzakis, and one coupling works by Berg and Webern -- Beethoven still seems like something of a stretch. But while the listener can tell from the edge of the quartet's attack and the intensity of its expressivity that the Artemis is a post-modernist quartet, the warmth and depth of its interpretations made it clear that it is also deeply in the tradition. Thus, while the intellectual rigor of the furious F minor Quartet Op. 95 compares the first Alban Berg Quartet recording, there is still something of the soul of the first Budapest Quartet's recording in the tone. And while the Fugue on a Russian Theme Finale of the enormous F major Quartet, Op. 59/1, is as vigorously argued as the Neues Leipzig Quartett's recording, there is something of the classic Amadeus Quartet's early '60s recording in the Adagio molto e mesto. One can only hope that this is the start of a complete Beethoven cycle. Heck, one can only hope there'd simply be more releases of anything the first-class Artemis Quartett wants to record. Virgin's sound is warm, deep, and true.

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.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.
