Few would pick Haydn's two cello concertos as his greatest works, but there is still no shortage of the pair, thought to be the survivors of a much larger group. This one, from Chicago's enterprising Cedille label, has several things to recommend it. One is the presence of the Cello Concerto in C major by Josef Myslivecek, composed in the late 1770s. Myslivecek was admired by Mozart, who was famously stingy with admiration, but the two eventually had a falling-out, probably over an opera commission that Myslivecek promised but did not deliver. His concerto postdated the first Haydn piece and may have been influenced by it; its instrumentation is identical. Its chromatic, rather intense slow movement is unusual, and in general the work is underplayed. The two Haydn concertos are also a bit unusual. American cellist Wendy Warner uses a bow from the early 19th century, and the Camerata Chicago is a small-to-midsized group at 25 players. But Warner, who plays some gigantic cadenzas, is a big Romantic cellist in the mold of her onetime teacher, Mstislav Rostropovich. The combination is unfamiliar but refreshing, and Warner and conductor Drostan Hall carry it off well, with careful balances. The focus is squarely on Warner, who is a very exciting player; even in this rather decorous music, her playing is full of lively little surges and surprises that keep the long outer movements going. The sound, recorded at a large church in exurban Wheaton, Illinois, is unspectacular, but this is a recommended recording for those who like Classical-era concertos done in the old concert-hall-sized way.

Marc Ribot, the Anti-guitar Hero

For over thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.

Beethoven: Fidelio's Big Adventure

Based on a story from France during the Revolutionary Terror (the story of an intrepid young woman who disguised herself as a man to save her husband from the dungeon), Beethoven's unique opera has had a turbulent life, and has been reworked here and there over the years. New proof of the German composer's musical genius, Fidelio also permitted him to write a musical setting for a libretto that matched his political beliefs.

The British Blues Boom, Chronicle of a Revolution

If Joe Bonamassa has come back with British Blues Explosion, a year after the Rolling Stones’ Blue And Lonesome, it has cemented the fact that the British Blues Boom was more than just a trend. More than a simple musical trend, it was the interest of a younger generation for the great American blues idols that had been ignored in their country, which led to a real revolution, with three major agitators leading the charge, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, considered in the UK as the “Holy Trinity” of rock and guitar. If they were far from being the only musicians involved, it is through their respective careers that we have discovered that blues, far from being an outdated musical genre, is some kind of getaway to other musical areas and has allowed for endless innovations.
