Antonio Pappano has never before recorded the tone poems of Richard Strauss, and he is in no way a Strauss specialist. However, that may change with this fine live recording of Ein Heldenleben, Op. 40, with the conductor's Orchestra dell'Accademia nazionale di Santa Cecilia. The Ein Heldenleben was recorded live in 2018, and the brisk concluding Burleske in D minor, with Bertrand Chamayou, is a studio recording, but there really isn't much of a lurch, and this is a testament to how much Pappano has made this orchestra and his sound his own. As for Ein Heldenleben, the performance is perhaps an opera conductor's view of the work, and this is all to the good. The program of the tone poem is as detailed as in any other Strauss ever wrote and, whatever the composer's occasional protestations to the contrary, more personal. Pappano gets the humor at many points, such as the unflattering portrayal of the Austrian critics in the second movement (they noticed, and responded in kind), and his reading of the third movement "Des Helden Gefährtin" ("The Hero's Companion"), which even Strauss admitted was a portrait of his wife, Pauline de Ahna, is lush, gentle, and yet full of surprises and fun; Pappano takes a bit of extra time here in a reading that otherwise sticks close to the norms. So it goes throughout; listeners will feel that they have been on the epic journey suggested by the title, even if that journey doesn't extend beyond the composer's studio. The Warner Classics/Parlophone sound from the Parco della Musica auditorium is quite warm and contains nothing to distract the listener.

Radu Lupu: an Understated Genius

Radu Lupu was a poet, magician and pianist who pursued the indescribable. The Romanian artist’s musical approach was brought to life by his tormented and fiercely introverted personality, which was always shrouded in mystery. When sat at his piano, he would knead the keys like dough, seeking a powerful, consistent sound. Radu Lupu passed away on the 17th of April 2022, leaving behind a relatively small, yet incredibly valuable, discographic legacy.

Undervalued: a Look Back on Female Composers

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho and Clara Schumann, several women have managed to break through the macho codes of the milieu and become composers. While the classical music landscape has been largely dominated by men in recent centuries, the work of their female colleagues, whether pioneers or contemporaries, is just as fascinating. Here we put eleven undervalued figures of female composition in the spotlight.

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.
