Throughout the history of music, many composers have had encounters with performers that would shape much of their output for years to come. Brahms had Joachim, Shostakovich had Rostropovich, and Lalo had Sarasate. In fact, Sarasate was the impetus for a great many violin compositions in the 19th century, but his impact on Lalo's writing was perhaps the most significant. The little-known Op. 20 Concerto was Lalo's first major success, followed immediately by the perennially appreciated Op. 21 Symphonie espagnole. The final work Lalo wrote specifically for Sarasate is the Fantaisie norvégienne, which came four years after Symphonie espagnole. While the middle composition has endured as a violinist and audience favorite far more than the outer two works, all three were clearly written with Sarasate's legendary technical prowess and passionate, Romantic playing. This BIS album features violinist Jean-Jacques Kantorow performing with the Granada City Orchestra under Kees Bakels. Kantorow's playing possesses many of the characteristics listeners may imagine when thinking of Sarasate: meticulous intonation, intense vibrato, dazzling bow technique, deft glissandos into big shifts, and gripping interpretive skills. The only thing that falls a bit short of expectations is Kantorow's sound, which, though always audible over the sensitive orchestral accompaniment, is not as big, robust, or powerful as might be hoped for. Still, finding all three of these works together on one album performed by a clearly gifted artist is a rare treat, and listeners are encouraged to check it out.

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.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.

Wilhelm Kempff: The Most Human of Pianists

An artist of another time, Wilhelm Kempff (1895-1991) believed in inspiration: he took on music as if it were a religion, with a respectful enthusiasm for the masters that came before him. With his velvet touch, sense of phrasing and storytelling quality, Wilhelm Kepff’s art was like that of a waking dream. Half poet, half divine, during a time when expression of emotion triumphed all. He recorded many times the works of his favourite composers, in particular his ‘god’ Beethoven, for whom Kempff is well known and left behind three complete sonatas in keeping with his own maturation and the evolution of his recording technique.
