« Recorded live at the Barbican in March, Valery Gergiev's performance of the Seventh Symphony as part of his complete Mahler cycle with the London Symphony is typical of his no-holds-barred approach to a composer who himself always goes to the ultimate limits. Even by Mahler's standards, this work explores a huge range of emotion, while highlighting his tendency to undercut and contradict his own material. The weird and grotesque constantly subvert beauty and aspiration in this thrilling interpretation, right through to the ice-cold shudder that precedes the final chord.» (George Hall, Independent on Sunday, 10th August 2008)


« This is a terrific, gripping performance from Gergiev and the LSO of Mahler s Seventh Symphony, an edge-of-the-seat experience of a work that can often be elusive. Gergiev's starting point is to get the detail right. No stressed accent is ever underplayed, no subsidiary counterpoint or detail of colour goes unnoticed. Helped in these live performances by a highly energised orchestra eager to display its finesse, he brings an almost palpable darkness, fear and mystery to the three central movements, giving an impression, in the central scherzo, of hot, tormenting laser lights darting in from all angles, and imbues the outer movements with an almost frenzied momentum.» (Stephen Pettitt, The Sunday Times, 17th August, 2008)

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.

The Paradox of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Studio

Esa-Pekka Salonen is an acclaimed finnish conductor and prolific composer. With over 60 albums under his belt, he has heavily contributed to the history of musical interpretation. This is an interview with an exceptional musician, who discusses his unique approach to working on classical music in the studio.

Scriabin's Flamboyant Raptures

Somewhat overshadowed today by his compatriots Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky and Rachmaninov, Alexander Scriabin is nonetheless a key figure in Russian music. At the beginning of the 20th century, the composer and virtuoso pianist broke away from the Romantic legacy to offer a unique and innovative musical language which no one would follow. His work, deeply influenced by mystical philosophy and synaesthesia, would undergo a dazzling evolution in barely two decades, interrupted by his premature death at the age of 43.
