This two-disc package from Emmanuel Pahud explores the music performed at the court of King Frederick the Great of Prussia. Frederick was an accomplished amateur flutist, and, thus, cultivated music for his instrument from the best composers of his day. This included Johann Sebastian Bach, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, and Johann Joachim Quantz. Frederick himself and his sister Anna Amalia also composed works featuring the flute. Pahud chose selections by each of these composers, filling the first disc with concertos and the second with chamber pieces and solos. These pieces span the period between the Baroque and Classical eras, but in general even Frederick's and C.P.E. Bach's sonatas have more in common with the former than the latter. They still employ the basso continuo accompaniment, however, all of it is very charming and agreeable, as much of the music of that era is. The pieces by the lesser known composers, such as Princess Anna Amalia and Johann Friedrich Agricola, may not be as musically sophisticated, but still have some appeal to the listener and a few challenges for Pahud. There are passages requiring virtuosic skill in most of the music, and in the solo sonata by C.P.E. Bach, Pahud's care for the music and nimbleness is plain to hear. He and his colleagues bring elegance and gracefulness to the music, even in the more lively, animated movements, making it all seem perfectly suited to the court of Frederick, the Flute King.

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.

Marc Ribot, the Anti-guitar Hero

For over thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.

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.
