Classical CDs Weekly: Bach, Mahler, Rachmaninov, Webern

Boulez's invigorating Mahler, Holliger's benign Bach and Trpceski's exciting Rachmaninov

Heinz Holliger: stylish in BachIngpen and Williams Ltd

A legendary septuagenarian wind player from Switzerland returns to the repertoire with which he made his name 50 years ago, and there's an exciting live reading of a gloomy fin-de-siècle symphony conducted by a contemporary French giant. The same conductor also treats us to a sparkling Stravinsky rarity, and a youthful duo lighten the mood with some Russian fireworks on Merseyside.
