We asked illustrator Mary Jane Begin to create a brand-new composition from three (surprise) elements. The goal? To teach members how to think about composition in terms of visual interest and implied story. In these videos, Mary Jane creates thumbnail sketches to conceptualize the layout and chooses the thumbnail that best communicates the message.

Robert Volkmann had a distinguished musical career, but even within his own lifetime his peers seem to have viewed him with respect as a worthy composer rather than one of any originality. That was probably a fair judgement and his work passed out of the concert halls and into the history books after his death. This double CD set from CPO therefore provides the modern day listener with a useful conspectus of his orchestral writing.

It is not difficult to include Juan Crisóstomo de Arriaga's entire orchestral output on CD, such as it is. The "Spanish Mozart" produced only three overtures and a symphony before his premature death at age 19. Jordi Savall produced a great disc of the symphony, but included only two of the three overtures, for Astrée with Le Concert des Nations and La Capella Reial de Catalunya in 1995. Fuga Libera's Juan Crisóstomo de Arriaga: Música para Orquestra contains all three overtures in addition to the symphony, and while the performances don't have quite the mischievous sparkle of Savall's, Paul Dombrecht and the Belgian period-instrument orchestra achieve something quite different with Arriaga's music here.

Famous conductor and musician, Claudio Abbado was internationally known for serving up a repertoire of music from the poetry of Holderlin, the legend of Faust or works that depict German drama. He conducted several orchestras worldwide and received numerous awards for his masterful genius. His works include Mendelsshon's Midsummer Night's Dream and Robert Schumann's Piano Concerto.

Frank Bridge couldn't write a tacky note to save his life. It's instructive in this respect to compare this premiere recording of his early tone poem Mid of the Night to Hyperion's recent release of Granville Bantock's almost exactly contemporaneous Thalaba the Destroyer. Where Bantock stitches shameless cribs from Tchaikovsky into a ramshackle and repetitive musical structure, Bridge's thematic material covers large, well-sustained spans and consistently holds the listener's interest. The lovely central melody introduced by English horn against softly murmuring strings has real lyrical beauty, and Bridge times his climaxes with unerring precision. Isabella, dating from 1907 (three years later than Mid of the Night), features some splendidly passionate string writing and an even more tightly integrated structure.

Francisco Guerrero (1951-1997) was a Spanish composer who was developing music in the spirit of Xenakis when he died at age 46 in 1997. These excellent recordings of his orchestral works were made in 1999 and 2000 and capture his fierce, uncompromising vision. Jose Ramon Encinar leads the Orquestra Sinfonica de Galicia.

Adrian Boult's credentials in this repertoire are unassailable, and to have nearly all his stereo Vaughan Williams recordings for EMI so elegantly packaged and enticingly priced will be incentive enough for many a prospective purchaser. There's much to treasure here, not least those gently perceptive accounts of the first three symphonies, as well as the Fifth and the Ninth.

Dvořák was a composer steeped in the national and folk music of his Bohemian homeland, and his orchestral music combines a broad and soulful melodic sweep with the wit of sparkling orchestration. Naxos is proud to present the most comprehensive overview yet of his orchestral output, the complete symphonies complemented by three charismatic concertos and a wealth of folk- and narrative-inspired orchestral works. A number of the shorter, less familiar works have been especially recorded for this anthology.

Alice Ader’s first Debussy disc (Erato) won all the awards in the specialist press on its release twenty years ago and is still regarded as an unequalled benchmark. Now this unconventional pianist at last unveils her recording of the complete Ravel piano works. And what better moment could there be than Debussy Year to present these two hours or so of music in dialogue, en Miroirs as it were, with the œuvre of ‘Claude de France’? Ravel, the hot-blooded Swiss watchmaker, the discreet Lisztian, the mediocre pianist who made such extreme demands on his colleagues, the man of so many sublime paradoxes, deserves only the finest interpreters: those who take the time to explore his deepest recesses. Alice Ader, light-years away from the flashy gestures often encountered in this music, takes us to the very heart of one of the most secretive composers of his time.
