The popular tone poems of Richard Strauss received glowing readings from Rudolf Kempe and the Staatskapelle Dresden in 1973 and 1974, and this 2011 reissue brings them to new listeners in a convenient EMI Masters twofer. A distinguished conductor who was widely respected for his artistry, though never known as a celebrity, Kempe recorded many fine albums for EMI, and his Strauss recordings received much critical praise for their interpretive subtlety and technical polish. Also sprach Zarathustra (famous for the opening fanfare used in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey), Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche, Tod und Verklärung, Don Juan, and Ein Heldenleben are brilliant showpieces Kempe shaped with intelligence and taste, and they are brought together here with the "Dance of the Seven Veils" from the opera Salome, and the "Waltz Sequence" from Der Rosenkavalier. Despite their age, these recordings still have a potent energy and resplendent musicality that transcend the slight disadvantage of the analog sound, and even though there are numerous all-digital offerings that can offer better audio, these recordings still sound great, with no apparent sacrifice of quality in the transfer from the original masters to CD.

Strauss & Kempe: Elective Affinities

The name of conductor Rudolf Kempe (1910-1976) is indissociable from those of composer Richard Strauss and the Dresden Staatskapelle orchestra. As Warner is now re-releasing the recordings made between 1970 and 1975, Qobuz is putting the spotlight on the Straussian legacy of a precise, often incisive conductor, who always paid the greatest attention to the text and its charms.

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.

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.
