If the Hagen Quartett was a band, it would be Metallica. The naked brutality of its attack, the blazing virtuosity of its technique, and the concentrated intensity of its performances are interpretative strategies both ensembles advocate. In any repertoire from Haydn to Schubert to Janácek, the Hagen is inexorable and unrelenting, but in Shostakovich it is unbearable and overwhelming. The Hagen's 1995 recording of the Soviet master's Fourth, Eleventh, and Fourteenth quartets was a coup de maître of musical slash and burn, and this 2006 recording of the Third, Seventh, and Eighth quartets is a chef de oeuvre of sheer terror. Showing compassion only for the hopeless yearning of the Seventh's ghostly waltz and endless grief of the Eighth's shattered finale, the Hagen mercilessly assaults sonorities, push rhythms recklessly, and force tempos relentlessly, as if Shostakovich wrote not socialist realist music but the darkest death metal music. Although this approach might not work for every listener -- those for whom only Soviet despair does the trick need not apply -- even the most faithful party apparatchik will have to admit the Hagen has found a convincing alternative approach to Shostakovich's music -- pure, unmitigated fury. Deutsche Grammophon's digital sound is vivid, hard, and deep.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.

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.

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.
