this month’s contributors

‘I first heard Emma Kirkby sing in the early 1970s, and since then she has always remained true to the distinctive character of her voice,’ says SIR NICHOLAS KENYON of our Lifetime Achievement recipient. ‘Emma’s immense achievements in the early music movement deserve to be celebrated.’ ‘Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto is not simply a work I love’, says CHARLOTTE GARDNER, author of this month’s Collection, ‘but it’s one whose immense discography constitutes a veritable feast of food for thought. The hours may have been long for this one, but the rewards were rich indeed.’ ‘It would have been nice to be able to spend more than just a few hours in Geneva’, says TIM PARRY, who visited Nelson Goerner to talk about Brahms’s F minor Piano Sonata for this issue’s The Musician &…

praemium imperiale awards honour anne-sophie mutter

Violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter has been named a recipient of a Praemium Imperiale Award. Given by the Japan Art Association, these Awards recognise leading figures in the fields of music, painting, sculpture, architecture and theatre/film ‘for their achievements, for the impact they have had internationally on the arts, and for their role in enriching the global community’. Each Laureate receives 15 million Yen (about £112K). As a virtuoso at the forefront of music for four decades now, Anne-Sophie Mutter’s legacy is substantial, owing to her acclaimed catalogue of recordings and high-profile premieres, and also to the nurturing of young artists through her foundation. Her newest recording, ‘Across the Stars’, has added a further unexpected dimension to her repertoire, offering recordings of music by John Williams prepared for her by the film composer…

ondine signs robert trevino

The conductor Robert Trevino has signed to the Ondine label. Forthcoming projects will feature both of this young American conductor’s orchestras: he begins with a bold statement, a Beethoven symphony cycle with the Malmö Symphony Orchestra, which will emerge from a Beethoven Festival this autumn; and there will also be a survey of American music by composers including Howard Hanson with the Basque National Orchestra. ‘I have had my heart set on Ondine for a long time,’ said Trevino, reflecting on the new partnership. ‘Their Sibelius recordings under Leif Segerstam have long been absolute favourites of mine, paragons of how both the production and interpretive side can come together to make something to treasure. I knew that I wanted to be part of that tradition.’ Ondine’s acclaimed catalogue boasts recordings from conductors…

beethoven from barnatan

Pianist Inon Barnatan and the Pentatone label are embarking on what they have called ‘the start of a longterm collaboration’. It begins – as with Robert Trevino’s new Ondine relationship – with Beethoven, in this instance concertos with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields under Alan Gilbert. Volume One, out in October, will feature the First, Third, Fourth and Triple Concerto, the latter featuring violinist Stefan Jackiw and cellist Alisa Weilerstein. Volume Two will be released next year. Barnatan and Weilerstein both appeared together playing Chopin and Rachmaninov sonatas on a Decca release in 2015; it impressed our critic Hannah Nepil, who said: ‘It’s hard to imagine many cellist-pianist duos more mutually fond of risk-taking’. ‘Hearing [Beethoven’s concertos] was one of my earliest musical memories,’ said Barnatan. ‘They have been a…
