This 2015 Deutsche Grammophon release of Franz Schubert's Symphony No. 9 in C major, "The Great," is actually the product of four concert performances from September 2011, two at the Bologna Auditorium Manzoni and two at the Bolzano Auditorium, so it is a live recording that has been skillfully edited. Bearing in mind Claudio Abbado's strong working relationship with Orchestra Mozart, this is likely the interpretation he had in mind, barring any mishaps in the performances that have been omitted. That said, it is a fairly safe and uncontroversial reading that doesn't differ much from most mainstream recordings, and the playing -- such as we hear -- is secure and polished, if not especially inspired or deeply felt. Because this is one of the last documents of Abbado's conducting career and a record of his rapport with an orchestra he founded, there is much to value from a historical perspective. However, because there are no sparks of electricity or special expressive moments, this recording of "The Great" will interest most of Abbado's fans but fewer Schubertians.

Undervalued: a Look Back on Female Composers

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho and Clara Schumann, several women have managed to break through the macho codes of the milieu and become composers. While the classical music landscape has been largely dominated by men in recent centuries, the work of their female colleagues, whether pioneers or contemporaries, is just as fascinating. Here we put eleven undervalued figures of female composition in the spotlight.

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.

Nils Frahm, an Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.
