Philippe Jordan's 2017 release on Erato brings together Modest Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, as orchestrated by Maurice Ravel, and Sergei Prokofiev's Symphony No. 1 in D major, "Classical," two popular works that showcase the orchestra brilliantly. Originally composed for piano, Pictures at an Exhibition is a virtuoso showpiece for pianists, and Ravel, inspired by Mussorgsky's attempt to translate paintings into sound, used the orchestra to give the work vivid tone colors and richer textures. Prokofiev composed the Classical Symphony away from the piano, finding it more helpful for developing his themes. Yet he took the modest 18th century symphony into the modern era, introducing piquant dissonances and abrupt key changes to tweak conservative sensibilities, and playfully used the orchestra in ways Haydn and Mozart never imagined. Jordan and the Orchestre de l'Opéra National de Paris deliver vigorous performances of both works, and the exceptional recording brings out the clarity of the parts and Jordan's subtle phrasing and shading of sonorities.

In your panoramas...
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.

Bernard Haitink, a Prophet in his Own Land

The great Dutch conductor who died recently at the venerable age of 92 proved the old adage wrong. Recognised by his peers throughout his own country from his youth, Bernard Haitink spent most of his vast career in the Netherlands, first conducting the Dutch Radio Orchestra and then the prestigious Concertgebouw in Amsterdam for 27 years, with whom he made many legendary recordings for PHILIPS, DECCA and EMI CLASSICS, including more than 450 recordings of a wide range of composers, among which Bruckner and Mahler enjoy pride of place.

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.
