music can offer a change of perspective

Performers offer us listeners many things – transcendent playing perhaps, or interpretative insight. But some of our most meaningful encounters with musicians happen when they challenge or change our perspective. Christian Tetzlaff is one of those artists, and his new album of the violin concertos of Beethoven and Sibelius is one of those records. Even the instrument he plays – a new one by Peter Greiner, rather than a vintage violin from by an illustrious luthier of centuries past – encourages us to think differently. As he recently told me, he’s not trying to make a statement, he just thinks it’s the best-sounding instrument. It’s a relatively rare stance. Free-thinking, convention-challenging – it’s there in the playing too. Rob Cowan, who reviews the album, and the musicians interviewed by James Jolly…

‘Post-concert dressing rooms don’t always make ideal interview scenarios’, admits writer PETER QUANTRILL, ‘but Iván Fischer waved away exhaustion and well-wishers to think deeply about the most famous symphony of all. “Beethoven is a prophet,” he told me. “He changes people’s lives.”’ ‘Hearing Christian Tetzlaff play the Beethoven Violin Concerto live in Berlin was a wonderful experience’, says JAMES JOLLY, ‘so it’s good that the recording reflects my memory of it. It was fascinating discussing music-making with him the following morning, and discovering what motivates this remarkable player.’ ‘It has been highly rewarding to become acquainted with, and exhume, so much of Stanford’s quality music that is still in manuscript’, says JEREMY DIBBLE. ‘Through this feature and many new recordings, I hope that he’ll be appreciated as the master of many idioms beyond his celebrated…

for the record

Conductor John Wilson has revived a classic orchestra from the past century, the Sinfonia of London, drawing on some of the leading players from London-based ensembles to make one-off recording projects. The Sinfonia of London was founded in 1955 by flautist Gordon Walker, drawing away many players of the London Symphony Orchestra, to record soundtracks. Among its most memorable albums was a recording with Sir John Barbirolli of Elgar’s Introduction and Allegro and Serenade for Strings, and Vaughan Williams’s Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis and Greensleeves, issued on HMV in 1963. In its initial incarnation it closed soon after, but was revived in 1982 by Howard Blake for the soundtrack of The Snowman, subsequently recording further soundtracks. Now, under Wilson, it will focus on making recordings for Chandos. Wilson already…
