There's no shortage of good recordings of Carl Orff's Carmina Burana on the market, and unless one has been neglectful in collecting SACDs of the big choral showpieces, there's probably little reason to indulge in this 2008 package from Chandos, except perhaps to honor the career of Richard Hickox. This recording was one of his last releases before his death in late 2008, and it is a fitting tribute to his excellence as a conductor that this live performance, with soprano Laura Claycomb, tenor Barry Banks, baritone Christopher Maltman, the Tiffin Boys' Choir, and the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, is given a brilliant presentation, thanks to the exceptional DSD multichannel technology used by the label. It's a solid performance, full of variety, drama, sonic depth, and ritualistic energy, and Hickox guides the vocal soloists and ensembles in a bold reading that never stints on color, excitement, and the expected bombast. The most noteworthy difference in interpretation is the way Hickox gives the vocalists considerable freedom in their lyrical numbers, and this gentle, almost dreamy feeling of rubato lends Carmina Burana some subtle expressive touches that are most welcome. All the same, if one already has a top-notch recording of this work, then this one will seem a bit redundant and not especially compelling. For all his virtues, Hickox is evenly matched by many fine conductors on other recordings, and for all its fine points, this performance does not trump its competition.

The Paradox of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Studio

Esa-Pekka Salonen is an acclaimed finish 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.

Nils Frahm, An Atypical Piano Master

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.

Women Composers: A Secret History

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho, music history has been marked by female figures who “dared” to write music. Is creation a male privilege? Our sound museum does hold more well-known and recognised male than female composers. Yet their works are no less exciting and there is absolutely no reason for them to play second fiddle, or be ignored altogether. Below, you’ll find a defence and illustration of female composition works through eleven musical portraits.
