Like Vol. 1 of Audite's survey of Edvard Grieg's complete symphonic music, Vol. 2 cleverly combines familiar with more obscure. The part of familiar is filled by the Holberg Suite for string orchestra. It is curious that this should be one of Grieg's most well-known works as the composer was intentionally subduing the folkloric and nationalistic characteristics that defined him in favor of capturing the feeling of a Baroque dance suite. The majority of the remaining works on the album focus on Grieg's own transcriptions for string orchestra of his popular (in Norway) songs. The omission of the text from these songs has little impact on Grieg's unmistakable idiom, folksy charm, and rhythmic vitality. Performed by the WDR Sinfonieorchester Köln under veteran Scandinavian conductor Eivind Aadland, these works spring to life through Audite's rich, vibrant sound; spaciousness and extraordinary detail are especially noticeable on the album's SACD layer. Aadland's upbringing surrounded by Grieg's music is obvious in the natural, almost effortless way that he guides the orchestra, drawing out the elegant, vocal qualities of the compositions while simultaneously highlighting the rhythms and harmonies that characterize Grieg's folk popularity. The orchestra's strings play with warmth and clarity and an exceptional dynamic range.

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.

The Paradox of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Studio

Mason Bates' weird and wonderful electronic symphonies

What do you mean, you haven’t heard about Mason Bates (yet)? He is one of the hottest names on the North-American music scene. Born in 1977, Bates is a symphonic and lyrical composer as well as an electro DJ (under the alias DJ Masonic) – two completely opposing genres which he takes great delight in mixing. Around half of his symphonic and lyrical work consists, in one way or another, of electronic sounds. The majority of these sounds are “every day sounds”, which are prerecorded and later put into a score. On the release date of his brilliant opera The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, Qobuz interviewed this extraordinary person.
