L'Arpeggiata, a vocal-instrumental ensemble led by Austrian theorbist Christina Pluhar, specializes in the music of the 17th century as well as the popular dance music on which much of it drew. The combination has resulted in uncommonly lively performances of music by composers who have hitherto been neglected simply because nobody else has quite managed to bring them alive. L'Arpeggiata has gone on to make several acclaimed recordings for the major Virgin label, but the six albums collected on this compilation, recorded for the small Alpha label in France between 2000 and 2005, are equally good and are a bargain in this package. The Baroque works covered, by Kapsberger, Stefano Landi, and Emilio de' Cavalieri, have been better represented in music history books than on recordings, and each disc yields some gems. Even better is the disc entitled "La Tarantella," a sort of reflection on the history, philosophy, and meaning of that famous Italian folk dance, and the one called All' Improvviso, which approaches popular dances of the Baroque era in the spirit, although not the rhythm, of jazz. There's not a dull moment anywhere in the set, and the music played here can very easily be made dull. You can even get Alpha's remarkable original booklets in digital form, although they're not included in the box set, and the production values of the original recordings were uniformly strong. Highly recommended.

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.

Women Composers: A Secret History

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho, music history has been marked by female figures who “dared” to write music. Is creation a male privilege? Our sound museum does hold more well-known and recognised male than female composers. Yet their works are no less exciting and there is absolutely no reason for them to play second fiddle, or be ignored altogether. Below, you’ll find a defence and illustration of female composition works through eleven musical portraits.
