Amsterdam's Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra has been unusually supportive of new music (ever since the days when they championed Mahler), not only commissioning new works but putting them into contexts audiences find relevant. Horizon 9, part of a series the orchestra has released showcasing these new works, is a good example. Two of the pieces on the album, both by Dutch composers, mark the 100th anniversary of Leonard Bernstein's birth in 2018. Boundless, by Joey Roukens, is explicitly designated an "Homage to L.B." and reflects the composer's outsized personality, while Richard Rijnvos' Amérique du Nord addresses the multiple American influences in his music, including jazz and pop, and artfully weaves them together. These works make a fine contrast with the two Eastern European works on the program, both with hints of minimalism but neither really minimalistic, and both original and accessible. Both are concertos of a sort, and treat the concerto form in rare ways. Peter Eötvös' Multiversum is a work for the intriguing combination of organ, Hammond organ, and orchestra, while Erkki-Sven Tüür's Solastalgia is a piccolo concerto with an environmental theme. Another attraction of the album is that it includes work by conductors who were in the Concertgebouw's orbit at the time of Daniele Gatti's dismissal: the Roukens is led by Alan Gilbert, the Eötvös by the composer himself, the Rijnvos by Gustavo Gimeno, and the Tüür by Stéphane Denève. A recommended program of new work from both composers and conductors.

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.

The Earth’s Song: The World of Gustav Mahler

What could have prompted Gustav Mahler to compose a work as unclassifiable as this one? Written between 1907 and 1908, a pivotal period in Mahler's life, The Song of the Earth occupies a special place within his oeuvre. It combines the “fin de siècle” spirit with the fascination for the exotic that was spreading amongst his peers at the time. Vienna was in turmoil when this music was composed, and the piece oscillates between the notions of farewell and new beginnings. With a lot of layers to peel back, The Song of the Earth definitely merits a closer look.

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.
