Once controversial and the subject of much debate for scholars and lay listeners alike, period performance practice (also known as historically informed practice) has been increasingly accepted by audiences, so a recording of Ludwig van Beethoven's symphonies played on original instruments and interpreted in authentic 18th century style is no longer a stumbling block. Indeed, just seeing the names of Frans Brüggen and the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century will give many people an immediate impression of what to expect: Classical music played by a small and lean orchestra, with glossy strings and distinctive woodwinds and brass, brisk tempos, repeats scrupulously taken, and all of the composer's intentions closely observed. Yet even with this easy predictability and the extreme familiarity of Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 in C minor and the Symphony No. 6 in F major, "Pastoral," these performances are actually quite fresh and exciting, thanks to Brüggen's engagement with his musicians and their responsiveness. The music they make is spontaneous and vigorous, and far from any misconception of period performances being the work of antiquarians, they play with as much passion and brilliance as any modern orchestra could. These live performances were recorded in Rotterdam in 2011, and the reproduction is exceptional for standard CD. Highly recommended.

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.

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…

Gounod: the Romantic, the Mystic

A major artisan of the renaissance in French music in the second half of the 19th century, alongside his elder colleague Berlioz, whom he admired, and his followers Bizet, Saint-Saëns, and Massenet, who were inspired by his faith in Art, Charles Gounod (1818-1893), a mystic and a charmer, a romantic in search of a new classicism, owed his fame to a few masterpieces, which have overshadowed his daring. A flourishing discography allows us to discover the diversity of his music: instrumental, vocal, religious, and lyrical.
