French clarinetist Patrick Messina, principal clarinetist of the Orchestre National de France, has been heavily talked up by Yehudi Menuhin and others, and this 2012 release of Mozart's clarinet evergreens should thus find a large audience of listeners eager to sample his work. The results are mixed, but they show that the hype is at least potentially justified. The less successful of the two works on the program is, oddly, the one with another marquee name. Conductor Riccardo Muti leads Messina and the Orchestre National in the Clarinet Concerto in A major, K. 622. Muti is not really a Mozartian, and here he's rather uncomfortable; leaving aside the needlessly puffed-up orchestral tutti in the finale, he doesn't coordinate well with Messina, and the two seem unable to agree on just how hard to push their unusually fast tempos. There's nothing to make you pick this recording from among the dozens of other versions of this concerto out there, but the situation changes with the Clarinet Quintet in A major, K. 581, where Messina is joined by the Philharmonia Quartet of Berlin. This is an altogether tighter performance, and here you can see what the fuss is about with Messina: his uncanny quiet in the theme of the slow movement, for instance, will linger in the mind long after the performance is finished. Radio France's live sound is impressively clear, and in general, although imperfect, this album announces the arrival of a major clarinet talent.

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.

The Little Tramp: The Great Composer

As the Paris Philharmonic puts on a major exhibition dedicated entirely to his career, it’s the perfect opportunity to take a look back at Charlie Chaplin’s close ties with music. He may be famous as a legendary performer and director, but the man with the iconic bowler hat and cane also composed the music in his films himself.

Beethoven: Fidelio's Big Adventure

Based on a story from France during the Revolutionary Terror (the story of an intrepid young woman who disguised herself as a man to save her husband from the dungeon), Beethoven's unique opera has had a turbulent life, and has been reworked here and there over the years. New proof of the German composer's musical genius, Fidelio also permitted him to write a musical setting for a libretto that matched his political beliefs.
