Album Review

A Baedeker tour of Europe’s miseries, amidst the outrage in Ukraine

One would never imagine Stalinist oppression was raging all around her

Three sonatas by Brahms? The clarinet adaptation, to no surprise, doesn’t work

Orchestras should be ashamed of their aversion to the composer

2021 has yielded more memorable albums than you can count on the fingers of two hands

British pianist Peter Donohoe’s recital is a perfect pick-me-up for Covid gloom

I was completely absorbed by this opera as a sound production — maybe one day I’ll get to see the whole show

The Larghetto’s organic optimism transcends present woes and looks to bright eternity

Taken together, it’s not the kind of music you want to hear in isolation
