Beyond great playing and great conducting, there are two things the Wiener Philharmoniker's annual New Year's Concerts need to succeed: tradition and variation, the tradition of programming only works by the Strauss family plus a handful of other acceptable nineteenth century Viennese dance composers and the variation of programming familiar as well as unfamiliar works in new and interesting configurations. The 2008 New Year's Concert commemorated in this two-disc set certainly fulfills those two requirements. Along with Strauss favorites like the Tritsch-Trasch Polka, the Radetzky Marsch, and An der schönen, blauen Donau are six works that have never before been programmed for a New Year's Concert, among them the Napoleon Marsch, the Versailles Galop, and a lively little dance simply called the Parisienne. The reason for this French fixation is simple: for the first time ever, a French conductor appeared on the podium of a New Year's Concert in 2008. Georges Prêtre, the conductor in question, has led the Wiener Philharmoniker off and on since the '60s, and on the basis of the performances here, they appear to have a relaxed, affectionate relationship that suits the spirit of the music. The Viennese musicians play with their customary opulent tone and elegant virtuosity, and, with their willing collaboration, Prêtre does amazing things with tempo rubato. He'll hold a beat to build suspense and combine ritardandos with crescendos to increase the pressure. To keep things moving. he'll push a phrase forward, pause for a moment at the top, then plunge on into the next phrase. Though not himself Viennese, Prêtre clearly knows and loves Viennese dance music, and with the Frenchmen at the helm, the rare repertoire sparkles while the favorite takes on an added luster. Recorded in clean, warm sound with plenty of applause between selections, the performances here are sure to delight fans of the symphonic waltz genre.

Marc Ribot, the Anti-guitar Hero

For over thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.

Steve Reich in 10 Works

Steve Reich belongs to that very small circle of composers who can claim to have changed the face of contemporary music over the last fifty years. Qobuz presents a selection of ten of the most important works from his catalogue.

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.
