The title of this Onyx album, Hungarian Dances, does not appear to be overly original on its surface. What is unique, however, is from where it draws its inspiration. Rather than assembling a random program of Hungarian Dances, violinist Philippe Graffin selects his program in part from references made by Jessica Duchen's novel Hungarian Dances. With so many obvious opportunities for collaboration between the various arts, it's a shame that cooperative efforts like this one don't occur more often. For those who have read Duchen's novel, this album is a practically indispensible companion, adding an entirely new level of understanding to the writing. For those just in it for the music, this album still provides an engaging and varied set of pieces, many of which may be completely unfamiliar. A student of Josef Gingold, Graffin has the Hungarian, gypsy-quality sound totally mastered, playing with just the right amount of gruff aggressiveness and flamboyancy. His interplay with pianist Claire Desert is sparkling and entirely symbiotic. Intonation is generally quite solid, although some pitches escape Graffin in the highest registers of his instrument. In this style of music, however, precision is not always necessary or even desired, and listeners will almost surely appreciate Graffin's efforts.

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.

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.
