There are somewhere past 100 recordings of Strauss' Don Juan in the international catalog and somewhere past 50 recordings of his Eine Alpensinfonie. In order to make a dent in such formidable competition, any new recording of these works needs to have something special going for it. In this 2007 recording of the works with Mariss Jansons leading the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, that something special is not the performances. This isn't to say that the performances aren't excellent. Here, as always, the Dutch musicians demonstrate why they are one of Europe's greatest orchestras with vivid colors, brilliant soloists, effortless ensemble, and a deeply polished tone that cannot be mistaken for any other orchestra. And with his skill, control, and energy Jansons once again shows why he is a top-rated conductor. But though the performances are admirable, they can hardly be said to be better than dozens of earlier performances, some of them by the same orchestra. Instead, what truly distinguishes this recording is the recording itself. Captured live in super audio surround sound, this disc is stunningly present and staggeringly immediate. Don Juan's brash opening sweeps the listener up and away and carries them straight through Eine Alpensinfonie's boldly pictorial effects. Whether this makes enough of a difference will depend on the listener and his/her playback system.

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.

8 Great Women of Electronic

From the pioneers of musique concrete to the stars of 21st century clubbing, Qobuz is celebrating eight women who have left their own distinct marks on electronic music over the past fifty years.

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.
