For their first Deutsche Grammophon release as a duo, violinist Itzhak Perlman and pianist Emanuel Ax offer two enjoyable works they have played together in recital, Gabriel Fauré's Violin Sonata No. 1 in A major, Op. 13, and Richard Strauss' Violin Sonata in E flat major, Op. 18. The Fauré piece, the better known of his two violin sonatas, is a French Romantic work in a sweetly lyrical vein, and Perlman plays it with tender feeling, drawing out the soaring emotions of the long-breathed themes, while Ax maintains a propulsive accompaniment that gives the music urgency and, at times, some much needed volatility to balance its serenity. Strauss' violin sonata is a Brahmsian study, in keeping with his early conservative training, and its mannered style provides contrast with the more evenly flowing and assured Fauré. In this performance, Perlman's expression is richer and darker in tone, and Ax plays with calm restraint, despite the technical challenges that seem to invite a showier style. Deutsche Grammophon's recording gives Perlman and Ax comfortably close presence and nearly ideal acoustics for their instruments.

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.

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.

Nils Frahm, an Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.
