The connections between Jean Sibelius and Einojuhani Rautavaara are manifest: the elderly Sibelius championed the music of the younger Finn, and musical connections are rampant once you start listening for them. These two violin concertos, amazing as it may seem, have apparently never before been recorded together, and the Rautavaara concerto, from the 1970s, is not at all a common item. This speaks well for the young German virtuoso Tobias Feldmann, for whom this album marks an orchestral debut: he could easily have chosen common repertory works instead. And he nails the difficult Rautavaara, with its cadenza-like opening movement and passagework-filled, perhaps Bach-influenced finale. The Sibelius, with the broad dynamics and loose formal construction of its opening movement, makes an ideal pairing with Rautavaara's work, and Feldmann has the requisite star quality for it. If there's any complaint, it's that conductor Jean-Jacques Kantorow and the Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liège falter a bit in the Sibelius finale's syncopations, but Feldmann is right there to pick up the energy. Also worthy of kudos is the Alpha engineering team, which makes the most of the orchestra's home base, the Salle Philharmonique de Liège, and provides an almost tactile sense of contrast between Feldmann's flashy leaps and the massed string sounds of the Rautavaara. A superb debut, and one that should be in the library of anyone who loves Sibelius, Rautavaara, or both.

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.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.

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.
