Maurice Ravel's brilliant orchestral version of Modest Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition needs no introduction, but the other works on this 2011 Onyx release may be less familiar to some listeners. The Symphony No. 2 in C minor, "Little Russian," of Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky is possibly the least performed of his symphonies, owing less to any real or perceived deficiency in the music than to the extreme popularity of the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth. This is a modest though competent work based on Ukrainian folk themes, and it has the composer's recognizable orchestral sound and nationalist style, without any of the biographical associations that have made people love Tchaikovsky for the wrong reasons. The original, raw version of Mussorgsky's Night on the Bare Mountain is far less frequently played or recorded than the tidy arrangement by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, though it deserves greater exposure because of its many unknown passages, startling effects, and impressive eccentricity. Kirill Karabits and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra play all three selections with commitment and energy, but it's safe to say that the Mussorgsky pieces were played with the greatest enthusiasm. The unpredictability of Night on the Bare Mountain makes it seem like tremendous fun to play, while Pictures at an Exhibition is stirring and vibrantly colorful, so the orchestra rises to the occasion because the score is magnificent.

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.

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.
