Claudio Abbado's relationship with the Lucerne Festival was famous and highly productive, not only for his many concerts with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra, but also with guest orchestras, such as the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, who appear on this CD from Audite. The recording of Franz Schubert's Symphony No. 8 in B minor, "Unfinished," dates from 1978, seven years after Abbado had become the Vienna Philharmonic's principal conductor, while the 1988 performances of Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 2 in D major and Richard Wagner's Siegfried Idyll were recorded when Abbado had been conducting the Chamber Orchestra of Europe for nine years. These performances show responsiveness and flexibility, what one might expect from a skilled communicator like Abbado and two professional ensembles that knew the pieces thoroughly. Aside from the slight audience noise, the only quibble one might have with these live performances is Abbado's fairly conventional approach, which was mainstream for the time, but seems a bit dated today, in light of more historically informed performances. Fans of Abbado will be the most interested in these recordings, though they are also a good introduction for newcomers to his style of conducting.

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.

Mason Bates' weird and wonderful electronic symphonies

What do you mean, you haven’t heard about Mason Bates (yet)? He is one of the hottest names on the North-American music scene. Born in 1977, Bates is a symphonic and lyrical composer as well as an electro DJ (under the alias DJ Masonic) – two completely opposing genres which he takes great delight in mixing. Around half of his symphonic and lyrical work consists, in one way or another, of electronic sounds. The majority of these sounds are “every day sounds”, which are prerecorded and later put into a score. On the release date of his brilliant opera The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, Qobuz interviewed this extraordinary person.
