Practically any CSO Resound recording is worth hearing, not only for the extraordinary clarity and depth of the audio, but most especially for the fine concert performances of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, which almost never disappoint. This live 2013 recording by Riccardo Muti and the CSO of the suite from Sergey Prokofiev's ballet Romeo and Juliet is certainly a first-rate reading, and the energetic playing and vibrant sonorities come across with remarkable details and presence, thanks to the superb engineering. The delicate string effects that are laced through the orchestration are wonderfully executed, and the rounded tones of the woodwinds and the powerful brass give the recording a special timbral richness. Yet as exemplary as this recording is, it is unusually short for a standard CD, timed at 48:50. Some listeners may balk at the program's brevity and compare it with available recordings of the complete ballet or presentations of the suite that offer a filler piece or two. Taken on its own merits, though, this recording is exceptional for its glorious music and vivid reproduction, and there will be many who will be happy with the disc as it is.

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.

Picasso, when painting meets music

Picasso's modernist genius swiftly stretched beyond the pictorial and spread into music and dance, two art forms with which the Spanish painter always maintained a close relationship, to the point of influencing composer friends he met along the way.

Orfeo Orchestra: 18th Century French Baroque, Resurrected

Orfeo Orchestra (conducted by György Vashegyi), a prolific performer of French baroque music since its birth, has been honoured in recent years by both Palazetto Bru Zane and the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles (CMBV) with invitations to record a series of explorations of French lyrical music – both baroque and classical.
