For listeners who know and love the orchestral music of Czech composers Josef Suk and Leos Janácek, this disc of symphonic poems and orchestral song cycles by their contemporary countryman Vitezslav Novák will be the next logical place to go. Although the two symphonic poems In the Tatras and Eternal Longing have been recorded many times, the cycle Melancholic Songs of Love has rarely been recorded, and the cycle South Bohemian Motives has never been recorded. Like Suk and Janácek, Novák started out as a full-blown Romantic composer; unlike them, however, he stayed a full-blown Romantic and his early and late works are all cut from the same bolt of shimmering, glimmering cloth. For those unfamiliar with Novák, his In the Tatras could be said to be a sort of Bohemian Alpine symphony with less musical bombast, while his Eternal Longing could be said to be a sort of Czech Also Sprach Zarathustra with fewer philosophical pretense. In the same vein, Novák's songs could be said to be moodier Eastern European versions of Strauss' songs, particularly the Vier letzte Lieder. These performances with Douglas Bostock leading the Carlsbad Symphony with soprano Daniela Strakova in the songs are entirely successful in making the best possible case for the music, and if for some listeners they don't succeed, it's only because those listeners lacks sympathy with Novák's fin de siècle aesthetics. Classico's sound is unhappily dim and gray.

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.

The Little Tramp: The Great Composer

As the Paris Philharmonic puts on a major exhibition dedicated entirely to his career, it’s the perfect opportunity to take a look back at Charlie Chaplin’s close ties with music. He may be famous as a legendary performer and director, but the man with the iconic bowler hat and cane also composed the music in his films himself.

John Barry, The Genius Jack of All Trades

Composing for the screen demands a taste and a skill for all styles: from disco for a nightclub scene, to a madrigal for a period drama, the cinema musician has to be ready for anything. And John Barry (1933 - 2011) was surely one of the greatest soundtrack composers, and one who was able to immerse himself fully into all genres of music and film.
