Conductor Simon Rattle is familiar with the rhapsodic Violin Concerto. In 1997, EMI Classics had published a version that became famous. It featured English violinist Nigel Kennedy, full of panache and wild virtuosity, especially in the final Allegro molto that must be taken both flexibly and firmly. The squaring of the circle! Kennedy and Rattle were exemplary. Here, Simon Rattle benefits from a much finer orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra, the quintessential Elgarian phalanx, whose tradition of performances in this field was revived in the last two decades by Sir Colin Davis (who died in 2013).


In the new Warner Classics version of this great concerto from the early twenty-first century, the performers favour moderation, with a sound that is sometimes rather monochrome. While Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider remains the modern herald of the work (with his perfect version accompanied by the Dresden Staatskapelle under Sir Colin Davis (RCA)), Renaud Capuçon's violin finds more colour in the chamber music, and the Sonata, recorded here with the excellent Stephen Hough, is of a very beautiful fluidity. These are 20 minutes of music which you should discover as a priority! © Pierre-Yves Lascar/Qobuz

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.
