Few music lovers are aware of the importance and originality of Brahms’s three piano quartets, yet the composer completely reinvented the genre. These works contain some of his most profound inspirations, demonstrating both the orchestral power of his scoring and his interiority. They probably provided fertile ground for his ‘symphonic’ imagination, judging by the uncommon force and creative power with which it is expressed throughout these three scores. The members of the Quatuor Hermès and Geoffroy Couteau have completely grasped the nature of this music, and serve it with the requisite authority and tenderness in an outstandingly committed interpretation. © La Dolce Volta

The Earth’s Song: The World of Gustav Mahler

What could have prompted Gustav Mahler to compose a work as unclassifiable as this one? Written between 1907 and 1908, a pivotal period in Mahler's life, The Song of the Earth occupies a special place within his oeuvre. It combines the “fin de siècle” spirit with the fascination for the exotic that was spreading amongst his peers at the time. Vienna was in turmoil when this music was composed, and the piece oscillates between the notions of farewell and new beginnings. With a lot of layers to peel back, The Song of the Earth definitely merits a closer look.

Here we put eleven undervalued figures of female composition in the spotlight.
