Pianist Nicholas Angelich has earned kudos for recordings of mainstream 19th century repertoire. He doesn't stray far from that mainstream on Dedication, but he does have a novel concept: the three works on the album were each dedicated to the composer of one of the others. The notes to this Erato release sketch out only briefly the relationships among the three composers, who represented different strains in Romantic musical thinking, but recognized and respected the talents of the others. Do the dedications rediscovered here shed new light on the music? Certainly they illuminate aspects of musical thinking that the composers held in common. Liszt's Piano Sonata in B minor was his only mature work designated as an abstract sonata, and its dedication to Schumann, the mid-century carrier of the Beethovenian legacy, perhaps reflects that. Schumann's Kreisleriana, Op. 16, in turn reflects the harmonic adventures of Chopin (of whom Schumann famously enthused, "Hats off, gentlemen, a genius!), and Chopin's pair of études from Op. 10 are works of near-Lisztian virtuosity. Angelich does a fine job of delineating these aspects, for instance with a restrained Liszt B minor that emphasizes its sonata-form shapes. A logical, enjoyable Romantic piano recital.

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.

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 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.
