If you're caught in a tight spot and desperately need a set of Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky's last three symphonies, then this double-disc from EMI may work as a quick fix. But if you need an exceptional recording of these works to last longer than one hearing (say, for the rest of your life), then skip this live twofer altogether, because its mediocre sound quality is sure to disappoint, and the performances, while decent, offer little compensation for the defects. In the best of times, one must be wary of EMI's reproduction because the tone quality can range from clear to muted to muffled, and certain audio "gremlins" can be obstacles to enjoyment. On this all-digital set by Antonio Pappano and the Orchestra of Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, the sound is afflicted by electronic distortion in several spots, and the volume at various points throughout seems unnaturally manipulated in mixing, making the orchestra's true dynamics hard discern. Add to this the unavoidable audience noises and what seems like someone humming along in soft spots and the package seems even less desirable. Yet these flaws would matter less if Pappano and his ensemble had something fresh to offer or if the interpretations weren't so close to standard-issue performances. But these readings sound like any major orchestra's recordings from the modern era, so it makes little sense to get this set when others of similar musical quality -- and some also include the underrated symphonies No. 1, No. 2, and No. 3 -- offer much better sound and value.

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.

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.

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.
