In many ways, this is an admirable recording of three quartets by Schubert. England's Belcea Quartet is a fine young quartet with a cogent ensemble, cohesive tone, and capable technique. And it seems to really mean what it plays: the A minor quartet is passionately sincere, the "Quartetsatz" is furiously earnest, and the early E flat major quartet is fervently committed. EMI's sound is immediate and vivid. It seems likely, however, that the disc will be more for fans of the Belcea Quartet than for lovers of the quartets of Schubert. The Belcea's interpretations are as yet still unfocused and its arguments not quite coherent. In the slow movements, it tends to lean ever-so-slightly toward sentimentality and the fast movements often slip structurally. Nevertheless, these performances will undoubtedly satisfy the Belcea's fans and win them many more.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.

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.
