For well over a decade, Mariss Jansons has been recording Gustav Mahler's symphonies in two separate cycles, one with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra on its RCO Live label, and the other with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra on BR Klassik. He recorded this RCO performance of the Symphony No. 7 in E minor in September 2016, and this hybrid SACD is superior to the version he recorded nearly nine years earlier. The symphony, nicknamed "The Song of the Night" for its nocturnal moods and also because of Mahler's own comparison of the first movement to Rembrandt's painting The Night Watch, is known for its eccentric instrumentation and unusual five-movement structure. Because it is one of Mahler's quirkiest works, at times seeming more like a series of picturesque tone poems than an organic, symphonic whole, it's easy to lose track of the trajectory that runs from the beginning to the end. Jansons maintains a steady pace and controls the tempos so the music acquires a growing sense of urgency and forward momentum; the symphony actually progresses as music and not only as a sequence of images depicting night turning into day. One advantage this recording has over the earlier BR Klassik disc is the relative lack of extraneous noises, including the near elimination of the sound of the conductor's humming, and the RCO's playing is exceptional throughout. Highly recommended.

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.
