Polish violinist Janusz Wawrowski attempts something quite interesting here and largely succeeds: he wants to transfer the virtuoso ethos of the Romantic era to repertoire of the 20th and 21st centuries. He looks the part in the graphics with his traditional Polish jacket, and he begins convincingly with one of the standards of the virtuoso repertoire, the Violin Sonata in E major, Op 27, No. 6, of Eugène Ysaÿe, and he pushes the violinistic limits even further with Luciano Berio's magisterial, borderline unplayable Sequenza VIII for violin solo (1976), which gives the album its name and which defines both its own tonal system and its own sonic field, often to the violinist's detriment (you might as well sample this, track 9, to get an idea of Wawrowski's formidable powers). But Wawrowski balances these with works that allude to the national and pictorial strands of the virtuoso repertoire, including two Polish works (by Grazyna Bacewicz and Krzysztof Penderecki) and a real rarity, the pictorial but dense, four-movement Eventyrsuite (Adventure Suite) of Norwegian virtuoso and teacher Bjarne Brustad. The program takes leave of tonality early on and never really returns to it, concluding with two world premieres of works from the 2010s. One might wish for a few more strands of the earlier repertoire to be woven into the later stages of the program, but there isn't a dull work in the bunch, and Wawrowski's playing is nothing short of awe-inspiring in the fireworks. A unique release from an emerging star.

The Earth’s Song: The World of Gustav Mahler

What could have prompted Gustav Mahler to compose a work as unclassifiable as this one? Written between 1907 and 1908, a pivotal period in Mahler's life, The Song of the Earth occupies a special place within his oeuvre. It combines the “fin de siècle” spirit with the fascination for the exotic that was spreading amongst his peers at the time. Vienna was in turmoil when this music was composed, and the piece oscillates between the notions of farewell and new beginnings. With a lot of layers to peel back, The Song of the Earth definitely merits a closer look.

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.

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.
