Even listeners who rightly treasured their LPs of Tippett's first three symphonies by Colin Davis and the London Symphony had to be grateful when Richard Hickox and the Bournemouth Symphony recorded all four of Tippett's symphonies for CD. After all, not only are Tippett's symphonies arguably in the same class as Elgar and Vaughan Williams', but, incredibly, they had rarely been recorded by anyone after Davis. So even if listeners who found Davis' recordings virtually definitive, they were still curious to know what the works would sound like under a different conductor. As it turns out, under Hickox it sounds bigger, brawnier, and more symphonic. Where Davis was all about linear energy, Hickox is all about orchestral weight. So while his First and Second don't have the same tensile lyricism as Davis', they do have more weight and muscle, and while his Third doesn't have the same ecstatic radiance of Davis', it does have more contrast and drama. Since Davis and the LSO didn't record the Fourth, no comparisons are possible, but Solti and the Chicago did and, compared with Solti's impetuously forceful performance, Hickox's more massively measured performance comes off equal to or better than his predecessor's. Are Hickox's recordings better than -- more definitive than -- Davis'? No, perhaps not, but they are still superb and still fascinating and anyone who loved the earlier recordings will in all likelihood love the later recordings as well. Chandos' sound is big, loud, and clear.

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.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.
