Even when playing Bach on a modern piano, most pianists interpret the composer's music through a Baroque stylistic lens: sharp attacks, quick releases, little to no pedal, a palate restricted to black and white and shades of gray, and a sense of austerity. Running against this trend, Soviet pianist Tatiana Nikolayeva plays Bach as if he were a Romantic composer. Fittingly, then, for this Regis disc licensed from A-Tempo in Prague, Nikolayeva fittingly chose a program of transcriptions with a similar emphasis: six by Busoni, including the demonic Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565; the titanic Chaconne from the Partita in D minor, BWV 1004; one by Myra Hess; the serene "Jesu bleibt meine Freude" from the Cantata No. 147; and one by Wilhelm Kempff, the haunting "Siciliano" from the Sonata in G minor, BWV 1031. These are all deeply Romantic performances. Nikolayeva's tone is rich and full with a bass that echoes deeply. Her lines are legato, each singing with complete independence. Her sonorities are lushly colored and balanced between clarity and warmth. Nikolayeva favors a very flexible tempo rubato, especially in slow movements, and her phrasing shapes the music extensively. Though they may antagonize purists, these are compelling performances that find universal themes in music three centuries old. Skillfully remastered by Paul Arden-Taylor from performances taped in Moscow in 1980, the sound here is surprisingly clear and real.

Even when playing Bach on a modern piano, most pianists interpret the composer's music through a Baroque stylistic lens: sharp attacks, quick releases, little to no pedal, a palate restricted to black and white and shades of gray, and a sense of austerity.

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.

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.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.
