This release by soprano Ermonela Jaho appears on the Opera Rara label, which is dedicated to the revival of neglected operatic repertory. Some of the operas excerpted by Jaho, such as Umberto Giordano's Siberia, certainly fit the bill. Jaho's repertory here is determined by a historical consideration: she records the favorites of a soprano of the early 20th century, Rosina Storchio (said to have been the girlfriend of Arturo Toscanini), to whom she has a certain physical resemblance. There are other obscurities, including the La bohème of not Puccini but Leoncavallo, and there are some well-known pieces by Puccini and Massenet. What really makes this recital stand out, though, is Jaho's interpretive powers. Storchio is said to have had a voice of only moderate size, and this is also true of Jaho, but both, it is safe to say, have brought the house down when the right circumstances converge. Sample almost anywhere, but perhaps try "L'altra notte in fondo al mare," from Arrigo Boito's Mefistofele, which illustrates not only Jaho's dramatic powers but also the remarkable sound engineering here by Opera Rara, working at the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia in Valencia: an uncanny sense of the singer's presence is given, and the closeness of her interaction with the Orquestra de la Comunitat Valenciana under conductor Andrea Battistoni is apparent. The physical CDs are recommended here, for the booklet notes by Jaho and others fill out the context and bring the music alive. A connoisseur's historical release, perhaps, but one that is also highly recommended to newcomers to opera: Jaho conveys what the art form is all about.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.

Women Composers: A Secret History

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho, music history has been marked by female figures who “dared” to write music. Is creation a male privilege? Our sound museum does hold more well-known and recognised male than female composers. Yet their works are no less exciting and there is absolutely no reason for them to play second fiddle, or be ignored altogether. Below, you’ll find a defence and illustration of female composition works through eleven musical portraits.

Strauss & Kempe: Elective Affinities

The name of conductor Rudolf Kempe (1910-1976) is indissociable from those of composer Richard Strauss and the Dresden Staatskapelle orchestra. As Warner is now re-releasing the recordings made between 1970 and 1975, Qobuz is putting the spotlight on the Straussian legacy of a precise, often incisive conductor, who always paid the greatest attention to the text and its charms.
