The live albums released by Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony typically have appealing programs of showpieces that complement each other in a musical or stylistic sense. In the case of this 2015 CD of Antonín Dvorák's Symphony No. 9 in E minor, "From the New World," and Edgard Varèse's Amériques, the basis for the pairing is the abstract idea of America, rather than any direct musical connection. Dvorák's portrait of the New World is a Romantic evocation of the United States, though this image is filtered through an essentially Bohemian and European outlook, as well as Dvorák's genius. Varèse's modernist work for a massive orchestra casts America (South America, this time) as an exotic and threatening jungle, though he likely intended it to represent the wilderness of the imagination, rather than a specific place. For some listeners, the match-up may seem incongruous, albeit thought-provoking, though the performances are first-rate and the sound quality of this CD is exceptional, a hallmark of the Seattle Symphony's label. Dvorák's extremely popular symphony is sure to invite most listeners, but don't overlook Amériques, one of Varèse's most brilliant and exciting works.

8 Great Women of Electronic

From the pioneers of musique concrete to the stars of 21st century clubbing, Qobuz is celebrating eight women who have left their own distinct marks on electronic music over the past fifty years.

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.

Bernard Haitink, a Prophet in his Own Land

The great Dutch conductor who died recently at the venerable age of 92 proved the old adage wrong. Recognised by his peers throughout his own country from his youth, Bernard Haitink spent most of his vast career in the Netherlands, first conducting the Dutch Radio Orchestra and then the prestigious Concertgebouw in Amsterdam for 27 years, with whom he made many legendary recordings for PHILIPS, DECCA and EMI CLASSICS, including more than 450 recordings of a wide range of composers, among which Bruckner and Mahler enjoy pride of place.
