Top 10 Classical Albums, November 2015

About this playlist

This month’s Classical playlist gives you some food for thought: alongside tributes to France and an exciting take on a “comfort food” classic — the Pittsburgh Symphony’s full-throttle new Beethoven Seventh — here are some contemporary composers well worth investigating. Ted Hearne probes the digital era of WikiLeaks with “Julian in a Nutshell,” a provocative musical deconstruction of an interview with Julian Assange, and Eric Nathan reflects on the tormented, avant-garde Renaissance composer Carlo Gesualdo in a piece that dramatizes the push-and-pull between past and present.
