Although it was released by Virgin Classics and aimed at the classical and opera markets, Love Songs and Lullabies is a CD that will also appeal to world music and Latin enthusiasts. Uniting acoustic guitarist Sharon Isbin with vocalists Thomas Allen (baritone) and Benita Valente (soprano), this project acknowledges not only European classical and opera traditions, but also, the popular music of Italy, Portugal and Brazil. Arrangements of the works of Brahms and Schubert are heard along with songs by great Brazilian composers such as Antonio Carlos Jobim ("Canta Mais"), Heitor Villa-Lobos ("Estrela E Lua Nova") and Luiz Bonfa ("Manha De Carnaval"). The latter is simply gorgeous. Introduced in the 1959 Brazilian film Black Orpheus, the haunting "Manha De Carnaval" has been interpreted by countless jazz artists, but here, it gets a very operatic treatment. However, Latin music lovers who have a hard time getting into opera and classical needn't be intimidated by this CD -- Love Songs and Lullabies is as accessible as it is engaging.

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.

10 Versions of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique

As a proper manifesto of French romanticism, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique marked the 19th century as much as Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring impacted the 20th. Composed in Paris − which at the time was a global crucible for artistic creation − these two masterpieces catapulted musical language into another dimension. On December 5th, 1830 the revolutionary work of 27-year-old Hector Berlioz deeply moved the musicians present in the small room of the old academy of music, among whom were Meyerbeer and Liszt, who were impressed by the extraordinary audacity of this piece presented just three years after Beethoven’s death.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.
