Contemporary with Berlioz, Cherubini, and Gossec, Georges Onslow contributed to the small body of French symphonies at a time when opera reigned supreme in Paris and the influence of Beethoven was only beginning to be felt. In Onslow's hands, the Classical form undergoes Romantic expansion and heightened drama, though not as extreme as Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique, the sensation of 1830. Onslow's Symphony No. 1 in A major, Op. 41, was premiered the same year to glowing praise, and found favor across Europe afterwards as a model of style and melodic elegance. But growing comprehension of Beethoven's and Berlioz's innovations soon made Onslow's music seem passé, even to his admirers. The Symphony No. 3 in F minor of 1834 addresses this situation with greater theatricality and a fuller use of orchestral resources, taking the symphony further still from Haydn and Mozart in its scope, emotionalism, and power; in time, Onslow earned approval from Berlioz for its brilliance. The NDR Radio-Philharmonie, directed by Johannes Goritzki, presents both symphonies with fine articulation, fresh timbres, and symphonic propulsion, and show that these neglected works hold up quite well in comparison with almost any other French symphony of the time. CPO provides clear and balanced sound.

In your panoramas...
Glenn Gould, Extravaganza

How can I describe – let alone define – this truly one-of-a-kind pianist? As an alien, perhaps. An alien who whisks us away at supersonic speed before slowing down to land on an infinite world where there is time for everything. It is the acceptance and cultivation of his otherness (or his alienness?) that has made this unconventional pianist one of the greatest and most loved (and criticised) musicians ever.

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.

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.
