"Piano Book" is a compilation of post-Bach piano music’s greatest hits. Lang Lang puts together a retrospective anthology beginning with J.S. Bach’s Prelude in C major from the first book of the Well-Tempered Clavier. The piece, in fully written arpeggio, which every piano student has studied to practice fingering, articulations, and harmonic tiering is followed by Beethoven’s Lettre à Elise. Lang Lang then invites Mendelssohn (La Fileuse), Chopin (15th Prelude from Opus 28), and Mozart (Allegro from Sonata "Semplice" or Variations on "Ah, vous dirai-je Maman") The record also includes lesser-known repertoire from such composers as Badarzewska-Baranowska, Czerny, or Clementi and a few Chinese classic and traditional / popular songs from diverse parts of the world.Lang Lang has fun, especially when he plays French music. Performing Debussy’s Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum, he enjoys each afterbeat, plays with the basses, and even sings. © Qobuz

After having explored the remaining cantatas of Johann Sebastian Bach’s ancestors, Vox Luminis and Lionel Meunier have undertaken here a recording, accompanied by instrumentals, of these sacred vocal compositions. They are pieces that connect us to the principles of the “spiritual concert” (Geistliches Konzert) and that, through their multi-parted structure, belong to the origins of the sacred genre of the cantata. It was through Johann Sebastian himself that we owe the knowledge of his musical ancestors. Around the age of fifty, he felt the need to collate and retrace his family tree, most likely originating from Hungary where the miller Vitus Bach always brought a cittern with him on his way to grinding wheat. The works of the Bach family presented here represent the first of the sacred German cantatas along with those of Bruhns, Buxtehude and Pachelbel. We can hear here the predecessors’ works that led to one of the first similar works by Johann Sebastian, his cantata “Christ lag in Todesbanden BWV 4”, was considered for a long time as one of the first compositions of its genre. In addition to its striking likeness to the form of cantata eponymous to Pachelbel, this composition contains numerous elements which can notably be traced back to the works of his ancestors. © François Hudry/Qobuz

"Handel’s Queens" features some of the most exquisite pieces of music written by Georg Friedrich Handel and his contemporaries for the two finest singers of the eighteenth century, Faustina Bordoni and Francesca Cuzzoni. Often wrongfully framed as rivals, these dazzling new recordings with Mary Bevan and Lucy Crowe reveal the distinctive yet versatile talent of the Italian vocalists. Conductor Bridget Cunningham continues her research and created "Handel’s Queens" and directs London Early Opera from the harpsichord.

With this new artistic proposal, French pianist Vanessa Wagner (who started her recording career by performing Scriabin and Rachmaninoff for Lyrinx, albums which are unfortunately unavailable) positions herself in a contemporary, resolutely contemplative and often dreamy state. Closely tied to the label InFiné − the label that released Statea on which she went exchanged with Murcof, both players of a great disenchanted saga −, Vanessa Wagner makes no secret of her inclinations for melancholic atmospheres. Wagner performs mini-versions of Moondog, Émilie Levienaise-Farrouch, Bryce Dessner, as well as more substantial works, easily recognizable by minimalist fans: Philip Glass’ Etude No. 9, Michael Nyman’s The Heart Asks Pleasure First, and Gavin Bryars’ Ramble On Cortona.Vanessa Wagner’s piano sounds dark. Fortunately, the album ends on the sublime Baltā ainava (“White Scenery”), the first piece of a great fifty-minute four-part partition by Latvian composer Pēteris Vasks, titled The Seasons. A rude, mostly dark cycle, however it is introduced by this rather bright, quite hypnotic, very atmospheric and truly mind-blowing piece: one can feel the white snow and the black, humid sun peeking through the mist, shining on the large steppes of Eastern Europe. © Pierre-Yves Lascar/Qobuz

Founded in 2015 by Swiss conductor and trombonist Lorenzo Ghirlanda, the German-based Vox Orchester is made up of around twenty young professional musicians from ten different countries, who have all grown up learning instrumental techniques and modes of playing characteristics of baroque music. Lorenzo Ghirlanda’s credo is that listening – and playing – ancient music is like discovering “new music”, because the young musicians’ fervour safeguards them from any form of routine or preconception. And it is precisely in this spirit that the Vox Orchester’s musicians author this album dedicated to Purcell and Locke’s music written for Shakespeare’s plays. While his texts have long conquered the entire planet, English music has often remained confined within the island’s borders. Recorded in 2018 in the auditorium of Radiotelevisione svizzera in Lugano, this music is the work of two English composers, prior to Handel’s arrival in London. Ghirlanda and his musicians’ interpretation aims to highlight the international nature of baroque music at that time, and more precisely the Italian influence Monteverdi, and later Corelli, had on European productions. © François Hudry/Qobuz

The brilliantly inventive Francesco Tristano Schlimé is having fun with these Tokyo Stories. The Luxembourgish pianist’s numerous references shine through with primed balance, as if rejuvenated by the artist’s mastery of multi-style collages. While very contrasting, each title flows naturally to the next. Although a minimalist, almost repetitive style is used to full effect, it never hampers the very clear desire to constantly renew rhythms, like in Insomnia, or Electric Mirror that becomes a beautiful tribute to Johann Sebastian Bach, one of Francesco Tristano Schlimé’s idols. The more fragmented style of Pakuchi, with its overlapping layers and light jazz rhythms, appears to veer towards territories of contemporary creation rarely explored by “electro” artists. Tokyo Stories rarely explores – to our great delight – the spacey and meditative atmospheres so popular to the overwhelming neo-classic-pop piano scene. Only momentum and impetus matter here. A stellar album that truly highlights Francesco Tristano Schlimé’s multifaceted musicality at the highest level. © Pierre-Yves Lascar/Qobuz

Piano sonatas are not what immediately comes to mind when we think of the East, or Lebanon to be precise. It is more the smells, the tales of One Thousand and One Nights, the perfumes and the delicious cuisine. It would be in vain, therefore, to search for traces of conventional Eastern themes in this second album that Tatiana Primak-Khoury has dedicated to composers of her country. At the forefront of this album can be found the international and cosmopolitan figure Anis Fuleihan (1900-1970), a Lebanese composer brought up in Cyprus who spent a great part of his career in New York before returning to Beirut to take on the leadership of the musical Conservatoire. The descendant of an Armenian family, Boghos Gelalian (1927-2011) moved to Lebanon after the loss of his parents. He then studied with French organist Bertrand Robillard, familiarizing himself with Eastern compositional techniques. A hotel pianist, he moved on to work as an arranger for Radio Lebanon, before gaining a name for himself through international competitions. Houtaf Khoury, born in Tripoli in 1967, is the youngest of the composers represented here. He came to Lebanon in recent times, traversing military conflicts, civil wars, political crises and social uprisings. Conscious of the role that art can play, Khoury expresses in his music an ardent plea for a more human world. As for Waleed Howrani (born in New York in 1948), he is one of the most well-known piano virtuosos in the Middle East. After having worked in the Beirut Conservatoire, he continued his studies with Emil Gilels in Moscow. Seriously ill and unable to continue his career, Howrani followed right to the end his dream of being a composer. His 1995 Lebanese Rhapsody is a very genuine ode to his youth. It is also the only truly “Eastern” piece in this album and shows, above all, the diversity of Lebanese composers. © François Hudry/Qobuz

His life accidentally cut short days before his thirty-sixth birthday, the tenor Fritz Wunderlich is cemented in memory as an incomparable interpreter of Mozart and Schubert. In a dazzling manner, this album shows how incomplete Wunderlich’s reputation is and how, since his early days, he was an extraordinary interpreter of the music of his time. Recorded by the south German radios between 1956 and 1960, the works presented here originate from a group of musicians that were ignored and reviled by the Nazi regime but remained present in the country against all odds.Such is the case of Günter Raphael, the choirmaster and organist at St. Thomas Leipzig, who lost his job in 1934 after being classed “half-Jew” by the authorities. Well-liked in the post-war GDR, he possessed a distinct sense of humor shown in Sonate Palmström in which he musicalized the absurd poems of Christian Morgenstern and combined a variety of elements such as jazz, pop music and cabaret. A pioneer in Germany of baroque music played on period instruments, Fritz Neumeyer composed for his friend Wunderlich a delectable neo-classical suite of Studentenlieder (“Student Songs”) based on humorous texts from the 17th Century that the tenor interprets with his usual enthusiasm.This passionate publication also provides extracts of operas and sung lieders as well as the diverse ensembles of Dietrich von Bausznern, a friend and classmate of Fritz Wunderlich, Everett Helm, Heinrich Feischner, Hans Pfitzner, Hermann Reutter, Alban Bery (Wozzeck) and Carl Orff, to which the editors have added an air of Stavinski’s oratorio Oedopus Rex. These superbly restored recordings offer a dive into a mysterious, post-war German universe while presenting another side of an artist we thought we already knew well. © François Hudry/Qobuz
