With this hybrid SACD of the Symphony No. 7 in C major and the Symphony No. 9 in B minor, Howard Griffiths completes his impressive series with the NDR Radio Philharmonic Orchestra of the complete symphonies of Louis Spohr. A prominent figure of the early Romantic era, Spohr composed in a conservative style derived primarily from Mozart, which over time became little more adventurous than Weber, and he was skeptical of the bolder innovations of Beethoven, Berlioz, Liszt, and Wagner. Even so, these are programmatic symphonies, in keeping with the Romantic taste for musical depictions, so the Seventh Symphony bears the subtitle, "The Earthly and the Heavenly in Man's Life," and the Ninth is called, "The Seasons." Spohr's symphonies are fairly general in their scene painting and philosophical underpinnings, so they are not as specific in narrative details as, say, Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique or Liszt's Dante Symphony. But the music is appealing for its warm orchestration and memorable melodies, and the frequent flashy passages for solo violin in the Seventh are a cheerful reminder that Spohr was a great violin virtuoso, rivaled only by Paganini, and he clearly wrote them for himself. The pair of symphonies is rounded out with a set of charming waltzes, Souvenir of Marienbad, which was inspired by the waltzes of Johann Strauss I.

Bernard Haitink, a Prophet in his Own Land

The great Dutch conductor who died recently at the venerable age of 92 proved the old adage wrong. Recognised by his peers throughout his own country from his youth, Bernard Haitink spent most of his vast career in the Netherlands, first conducting the Dutch Radio Orchestra and then the prestigious Concertgebouw in Amsterdam for 27 years, with whom he made many legendary recordings for PHILIPS, DECCA and EMI CLASSICS, including more than 450 recordings of a wide range of composers, among which Bruckner and Mahler enjoy pride of place.

Steve Reich in 10 Works

Steve Reich belongs to that very small circle of composers who can claim to have changed the face of contemporary music over the last fifty years. Qobuz presents a selection of ten of the most important works from his catalogue.

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.
