Mariss Jansons is not known as a major Bruckner conductor, but he has recorded a handful of the symphonies with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra for the audiophile RCO Live label, and this 2016 hybrid SACD of the Symphony No. 9 in D minor is a vital addition to his discography. Jansons' previous recordings of Bruckner show a light touch, particularly in his clean textures and the feeling of propulsive motion in his tempos. His 2014 performance of the Ninth is similar, in contrast to more traditional recordings that are heavier in sound and ponderous in overall effect. Due to the advent of historically informed performances, Bruckner's symphonies are increasingly played faster and with leaner textures, in keeping with the practices of his time, and some of that revisionism is at play in Jansons' rendition, which otherwise is not updated with period instrumentation or seating. The timing at 54:44 indicates that Jansons takes it quite fast, compared with many other recordings, and the urgency of his interpretation should please listeners who grow impatient with overly reverent or stodgy Ninths. Aside from his speed and lighter approach, Jansons observes the convention of playing only the first three movements in Leopold Nowak's edition, so the opportunity to hear one of the scholarly completions of the finale is missed. But among recordings of this standard version, Jansons' performance is solid and well worth hearing.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.

Jonas Kaufmann in 10 Key Albums

With his flattering physique reminiscent of a handsome romantic, German Jonas Kaufmann has successfully modernised the image of opera tenors, long considered as unrepentant tumblers… Beyond his powerful and versatile voice, Jonas Kaufmann possesses an immense repertoire in several languages, masters all styles of opera, from Wagner to Verdi or Puccini, and sings the lied or the French opera to perfection. A great admirer of Fritz Wunderlich, he started his career “the old fashioned way”, in a company touring around small German theatres before taking off on his own towards a prodigious career. After a chaotic year in 2017 due to a ruptured blood vessel on his vocal chords, Jonas Kaufmann seems to have fully recovered and is working on countless new projects. Qobuz looks back on his career, highlighting 10 albums.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.
