La fanciulla del West – "The Girl of the West" – isn't, today, one of the best-known of Puccini's later works. Is that because Hollywood westerns have made us so familiar with cowboys and saloon girls who speak in English rather than Italian? Pulp spaghetti westerns might have brought us round somewhat to the idea of Italian spoken out west, only they tend not to be shown in Italian. Regardless, this verist tale, set in California and with a proto-Hollywood musical theme (it's a tad post-Debussyist at points) is not without its charms, and its characters are well-rounded. This new recording, made from a live performance at the Teatro di San Carlo, brings together the American Emily Magee as the tender Minnie, Italian tenor Roberto Aronica in the role of Johnson, the bandit-turned-good who will ride off with the belle at the end of the film – narrowly escaping the gallows – and our Sheriff is baritone Claudio Sgura. It's a fine distribution, with solid supporting roles. © SM/Qobuz

Orfeo Orchestra: 18th Century French Baroque, Resurrected

Orfeo Orchestra (conducted by György Vashegyi), a prolific performer of French baroque music since its birth, has been honoured in recent years by both Palazetto Bru Zane and the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles (CMBV) with invitations to record a series of explorations of French lyrical music – both baroque and classical.

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.

Mason Bates' weird and wonderful electronic symphonies

What do you mean, you haven’t heard about Mason Bates (yet)? He is one of the hottest names on the North-American music scene. Born in 1977, Bates is a symphonic and lyrical composer as well as an electro DJ (under the alias DJ Masonic) – two completely opposing genres which he takes great delight in mixing. Around half of his symphonic and lyrical work consists, in one way or another, of electronic sounds. The majority of these sounds are “every day sounds”, which are prerecorded and later put into a score. On the release date of his brilliant opera The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, Qobuz interviewed this extraordinary person.
