Thematic albums have proven popular with many classical musicians in a stifling world filled with intimidating masterpieces. Here, violinist Lisa Batiashvili takes us on an autobiographical journey, mapping out important places and memories of her life and career through music, from her native Georgia to Paris, Berlin, Buenos Aires and Hollywood.


In these very romantic arrangements by Nikoloz Rachveli layered with nostalgic sound effects from films, the virtuoso violinist pays a special tribute to Charles Chaplin with the music he composed and used in his films, beginning with City Lights, after which she named the album. “Chaplin was very popular in Georgia when I was a child. He was a multi-talent, not only acting and making movies but writing gorgeous music. For me, he represents the beauty and creative imagination of the 20th century”.


The choice of music in this album is very personal, with pieces ranging from Bach to Astor Piazzolla, Johann Strauss, Michel Legrand and many others. Joining Lisa Batiashvili are fellow Georgian singer Katie Melua, guitarist Miloš Karadaglić and German jazz trumpeter Till Brönner. © François Hudry/Qobuz

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.

Nils Frahm, An Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.
