The first volume of Audite's Complete Symphonic Works of Edvard Grieg includes two of his most popular orchestral works, the Peer Gynt Suites No. 1 and No. 2, along with the less famous Symphonic Dances, Op. 64, and the Funeral March in Memory of Rikard Nordraak. Mixing familiar and unfamiliar works is a good strategy for making each volume in this series accessible to listeners who might not know much Grieg, but the fine performances by Eivin Aadland and the WDR Sinfonie-Orchester Köln make the recordings even more appealing. The playing is vivid and engaging, and the orchestra sounds especially rich and colorful in the hybrid SACD format, which gives the music depth and realistic dimensions. While the orchestration is uncomplicated in Grieg's music, the freshness of his sonorities and the clarity of his lines are masterful, and Aadland is careful to preserve the simplicity and directness of the scores, particularly in the Peer Gynt suites. Because of the exceptionally wide dynamic range of the recordings, some attention to volume settings may be necessary.

Bruno Walter, Memories of a Departed Legend

Listening to Bruno Walter’s recordings, in light of the splendid remastered editions published by Sony Classical, you tap into a truly humanistic culture. A tremendous conductor, music was his vocation, a way of life and an art of thought. His recordings have conserved his art vocal music, intense but never sentimental, thanks to a clear linearity complemented by a versatile rhythm, ensuring clarity, coherence and vigour.

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…

10 Versions of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique

As a proper manifesto of French romanticism, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique marked the 19th century as much as Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring impacted the 20th. Composed in Paris − which at the time was a global crucible for artistic creation − these two masterpieces catapulted musical language into another dimension. On December 5th, 1830 the revolutionary work of 27-year-old Hector Berlioz deeply moved the musicians present in the small room of the old academy of music, among whom were Meyerbeer and Liszt, who were impressed by the extraordinary audacity of this piece presented just three years after Beethoven’s death.
