Age and the Ages. In music there are many composers and compositions that have stood the test of time. Benjamin Alard continues his survey of the keyboard works of J.S. Bach with Volume 6 covering the first part of the Well-Tempered Clavier and Jason Vieaux (pictured above) continues his exploration of Bach’s works for violin. A relatively young conductor (not yet 30 years old), Klaus Mäkelä, joins a long line of Scandinavian conductors doing cycles of Sibelius symphonies. At the other end of the spectrum, 97-year-old pianist Ruth Slenczynska signed a new recording contract with Decca. And don’t forget Mother Earth, at more than 4.5 billion years old and celebrated in April. Harpist Yolanda Kondonassis commissioned several new pieces for her release, Five Minutes for Earth.
