This recording of Zemlinsky's Lyrische Symphonie is not altogether as bad as it could have been. It could have been slower and then it would last longer and that would have been worse. And it could have a worse recording that would make it sound even more opaque and that would have been worse. And it could have worse singers who would make it sound even duller and that would have been worse. And it could have a worse conductor and then it would be even drabber and that would have been worse. And it could have a worse orchestra and then it would be even more poorly played with even worse tone and worse ensemble and that would be worse. But, no matter how much worse the singers and the conductor and the orchestra and the recording could have been, the piece itself could not have been any worse if it tried. A tawdry knock-off of Das Lied von der Erde with a dollop of sex and sensuality for extra texture, Zemlinsky's Lyrische Symphonie starts awful and progresses through appalling to abysmal. When this recording was made in 1978, the Zemlinsky revival was just starting. It's too bad it got this far.

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.

Picasso, when painting meets music

Picasso's modernist genius swiftly stretched beyond the pictorial and spread into music and dance, two art forms with which the Spanish painter always maintained a close relationship, to the point of influencing composer friends he met along the way.

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.
