When pianist Glenn Gould created a pioneering radio documentary on The Idea of North, the music he chose to embody this was Sibelius – naturally. Few composers conjure up such immediate images: chill clear air, glittering snowfields, foggy autumnal marshes, the fresh radiance of the swift Northern spring.

The Search for Mrs. Bach

The Search for Mrs. Bach | Navigate | Scoop.it

A classical-music world dominated by the past will, inevitably, be one dominated by men. Instead of trying to invent a female Bach in prior centuries, let’s seek her in the present.

Symphony guide: Louise Farrenc's Third

Symphony guide: Louise Farrenc's Third | Navigate | Scoop.it
Farrenc’s symphony is as impressively energetic and structurally satisfying as any of Mendelssohn’s or Schumann’s symphonies – so does that make it “male” or “female”? Who cares? Enjoy getting to know this shamefully neglected work, writes Tom Service

8 great composers at Christmas: What did the great composers get up to at Christmas? We look at some of their letters to find out | Classical-Music.com | Navigate | Scoop.it
