Scots violinist Nicola Benedetti has achieved phenomenal popularity not only in her native Britain, but increasingly beyond. And she has done so, not by aiming at the large crossover market from the start, but with a series of major concerto releases. She's not on the level of Anne-Sophie Mutter as yet, but she's certainly a significant talent who has earned the right to a crowd-pleaser, and that's what she offers here. She accomplishes her goal in an original way, to boot. The Silver Violin title, and the associated graphics, refer to the silver screen, and what Benedetti offers here is a group of film music excerpts. The whole is put together in a nicely unified way; even though the subject matter of, say, Schindler's List, might be miles removed from that of the 2004 British weeper Ladies in Lavender, an extravagant romantic mood links the sections Benedetti plays. She reaches beyond film music for several tracks by Erich Korngold, whose music, to be sure, led directly to a Hollywood career, and Korngold's Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 35, expertly executed by Benedetti, was a fine choice to break up the sequence of single moods without straying too far from them. Another noteworthy feature is the presence of several excerpts from Shostakovich's film scores. Written under duress to please Soviet cultural authorities, these works haven't been treated kindly by history, but Benedetti locates some pure melodic gems in them. The Mahler Piano Quartet in A minor, although a piece of bona fide film music (it appeared in the psychological thriller Shutter Island), fits less well with the program than the rest of the music; the sudden appearance of chamber music doesn't quite work (the tango by Gardel, track 3, works better in this regard). But in general Benedetti has her violin play a variety of roles effectively and delivers a satisfyingly lush concept album.

Nils Frahm, An Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.

Women Composers: A Secret History

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho, music history has been marked by female figures who “dared” to write music. Is creation a male privilege? Our sound museum does hold more well-known and recognised male than female composers. Yet their works are no less exciting and there is absolutely no reason for them to play second fiddle, or be ignored altogether. Below, you’ll find a defence and illustration of female composition works through eleven musical portraits.

Bruno Walter, Memories of a Departed Legend

Listening to Bruno Walter’s recordings, in light of the splendid remastered editions published by Sony Classical, you tap into a truly humanistic culture. A tremendous conductor, music was his vocation, a way of life and an art of thought. His recordings have conserved his art vocal music, intense but never sentimental, thanks to a clear linearity complemented by a versatile rhythm, ensuring clarity, coherence and vigour.
