Ably written around the figure of the woman in Schubert's Lieder, this new album by Carolyn Sampson and Joseph Middleton uses verse from poets Helmina von Chézy, Marianne von Willemer, or poems with a female protagonist, like Goethe's Mignon and Gretchen; Ellen in Walter Scott's Lady of the Lake by Walter Scott, translated into German. The album closes with the mother of mothers, on the famous Ave Maria. Dubbed "the best British soprano of early music by far" by the press in her own country, this English diva has a rare versatility, which allows her to move from the extreme difficulty of Semele (Handel) to Stravinsky's Noces, by way of Bach, which she sings with outstanding representatives of such different aesthetics as Masaaki Suzuki, Philippe Herreweghe and Riccardo Chailly.
Maturity has brought a new roundness and a very even plenitude to the spirited and sensual voice of Carolyn Sampson, who forms an excellent duet with pianist Joseph Middleton, who is often compared by the British press to the great Gerald Moore. The Times has even called him "the cream of the new generation", and he specialises in accompanying the world's greatest voices, racking up recording after recording and concert after concert. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Tim Burton in 10 Albums

Through feature-length and animated films, Tim Burton has created a fascinating world of cinema over the last thirty years where poetic wonders meet gothic aesthetic and macabre humor. With few exceptions, he worked on most of his films with a specific composer, Danny Elfman. Without Burton’s images, Elfman’s music would not feel the same, and vice-versa. In 2019, the two artists proved this one more time with their last collaboration: the deeply moving "Dumbo".

10 Versions of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique

As a proper manifesto of French romanticism, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique marked the 19th century as much as Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring impacted the 20th. Composed in Paris − which at the time was a global crucible for artistic creation − these two masterpieces catapulted musical language into another dimension. On December 5th, 1830 the revolutionary work of 27-year-old Hector Berlioz deeply moved the musicians present in the small room of the old academy of music, among whom were Meyerbeer and Liszt, who were impressed by the extraordinary audacity of this piece presented just three years after Beethoven’s death.
