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.

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.

Nelson Freire, a Humble Virtuoso

A child prodigy in his native country, the Brazilian pianist who passed away in November 2021 kept his distance from the noisy fanfare of fame. His enormous hands and his natural and virtuoso technique always assisted his full, powerful and mellow sound. Here Qobuz looks back at the career of a musician that for a long time was the “best-kept secret in the world of the piano”.

Bernard Haitink, a Prophet in his Own Land

The great Dutch conductor who died recently at the venerable age of 92 proved the old adage wrong. Recognised by his peers throughout his own country from his youth, Bernard Haitink spent most of his vast career in the Netherlands, first conducting the Dutch Radio Orchestra and then the prestigious Concertgebouw in Amsterdam for 27 years, with whom he made many legendary recordings for PHILIPS, DECCA and EMI CLASSICS, including more than 450 recordings of a wide range of composers, among which Bruckner and Mahler enjoy pride of place.
