This 2009 recording of Strauss' Ein Heldenleben and Rosenkavalier Suite with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra offers a clear image of conductor Andris Nelsons' style of interpretation. This was more difficult to see in his previous recording with the Birmingham musicians, a release featuring Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony and Hamlet overture, which raced from one extreme to the other, from very loud to very quiet, and from very fast to very slow, in a manner that seemed imposed on the music. Here, Nelsons' fluid but always controlled tempos fit more with the music's mercurial character, and in fact enhance it. In Ein Heldenleben, the hero seems bravely impetuous and his spouse sweetly seductive through Nelsons' adroit tempo modifications, and the Rosenkavalier Suite holds together because of Nelsons' use of tempo to articulate form. Anyone who enjoys Strauss' music is likely to be pleased with these performances. While the City of Birmingham Symphony does its best with these difficult scores, it still sounds like a provincial orchestra with somewhat scrawny strings and sometimes overly blatant brass. Orfeo's digital sound, though lush and warm, is not nearly as clear and detailed as it might be.

Bruno Walter, Memories of a Departed Legend

Listening to Bruno Walter’s recordings, in light of the splendid remastered editions published by Sony Classical, you tap into a truly humanistic culture. A tremendous conductor, music was his vocation, a way of life and an art of thought. His recordings have conserved his art vocal music, intense but never sentimental, thanks to a clear linearity complemented by a versatile rhythm, ensuring clarity, coherence and vigour.

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.
