Ah -- smart programming. It's as satisfying to see as it is to hear. While smartly programmed live performances will often feature one work of wide recognition and popularity to draw in the audience and then expose people to lesser-known works, so do well-considered CD programs. In this case, the "blockbuster" is Saint-Saëns' Third Violin Concerto, likely his most significant contribution to the violin repertoire. Of course it's not enough for a piece simply to be popular; it must also be performed well. Violinist Jean-Jacques Kantorow and the Tapiola Sinfonietta deliver a brilliant performance that is unlikely to disappoint. Kantorow's playing is elegant, powerful, and exciting. His palate of tone colors is quite varied, ranging from dark and sultry to sparkling and effortless. The orchestra provides an equally convincing effort, making its accompanimental role tight and energetic while always stepping to the side when the soloist reenters. This performance of Saint-Saëns' Third is definitely appropriate for first-time listeners and aficionados alike. Now that the album has captured everyone's attention, it continues with a set of five miniatures also by Saint-Saëns -- two for violin and orchestra, two for piano and orchestra, and one for string orchestra alone. All of these works are equally as exciting, well-written, and worthy of attention as their more popular brethren. Especially in the case of the Op. 52 Caprice for violin and orchestra, listeners are exposed to a more modernistic side of Saint-Saëns' compositional style. The performances by both soloists and orchestra are every bit as proficient and captivating as the first work on the album.

In your panoramas...
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.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.

Erased Tapes, a Not-so-classic Label

Since its birth in 2007, Erased Tapes has made a name for itself as one of the most innovative labels of the last 15 years and enjoyed great commercial success. Although some fail to see past its neoclassical shopfront (Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds), the London-based label explores the outer limits of ambient, electronica and experimental with a catalogue that's smoothly curated by the German Robert Raths. Qobuz takes a closer look.
