La vida breve is the first great work by Manuel de Falla, not only on account of the brilliance of his achievement, but also because in this score the powerful musical personality of the composer shines through. It introduces an orchestral scope that was previously unheard of in Hispanic musical theatre; there are direct references to folklore; there is the very remarkable role of the choir, and the incredible ability to evoke the magic of the Albaicín in Granada. The idea of the story came to Falla when he read, in the periodical "Blanco y Negro", a short poem of clear social content, written by Carlos Fernández-Shaw, which would become the heart of the libretto. ‘I am filled with emotion at the prospect of releasing this disc, because for all Spanish conductors Manuel de Falla’s La vida breve is the highpoint of Spanish opera and a fundamental work in our repertoire.’ (Juanjo Mena) © Chandos

Although he was born in Germany, Simon Mayr lived his entire adult life in Italy and it was in this country that he established himself as a superb composer. He has composed around sixty operas which have all been performed in the most prestigious transalpine theatres in Milan, Rome, Venice, Naples, Turin, and later in cities across Europe, from Vienna, Prague and Dresden to Munich and London. I Cherusci from 1808 tells the timeless story of the bond between father and daughter, of sacred duty and of sacrifice in a plot that is set in Germany in the era of ancient Rome, the Cherusci being a proud and belligerent Germanic nation from what is now Lower Saxony. There is a Prince Treuta, a Tamaro (sung by a soprano who is also the bard), a great druid Zarasto (no, not ZarastRo, but Zarasto) and a Tusnelda, all of whom are Germans singing as you would expect…in Italian! The music foreshadows the rise of Rossini with its sophisticated harmony and meticulous orchestration, and is far from early Bel Canto. This is a world premiere recording featuring brilliant vocals from Markus Schäfer and the ethereal voice of soprano Yvonne Prentki. Frankly, it makes you wonder why on earth Simon Mayr’s works aren’t performed more often on the world’s greatest stages as he is a truly fantastic composer from this era and is just as comfortable in the lyrical drama as he is in mischievous musical comedy. © SM/Qobuz

This new Vivaldi album marks a double anniversary, the thirty-year anniversary of the close collaboration between Cecilia Bartoli and the famous English label Decca, and the twenty-year anniversary of the very successful first Vivaldian opus. This time leaving behind Giovanni Antonini and his Il Giardino Armonico ensemble, Cecilia Bartoli has selected French musicians well versed in Vivaldi’s music, as if to demonstrate the universal nature of the Red Priest’s compositions. In fact, Jean-Christophe Spinosi and his Ensemble Matheus have distinguished themselves with Vivaldi’s instrumental music since their early days. They started off their collaboration with five concerts, dedicated of course to the Venetian composer, in Munich, Prague, Baden-Baden and Versailles. For their first recording together they selected ten opera titles, nine of which weren’t featured on the 1999 album. The plethora of Vivaldi operas provides an endless supply to recitalists who can easily put together, as is the case here, an extremely lively programme featuring the most beautiful gems of an extraordinarily expansive composer whose melodic liveliness has been a constantly fascinating topic. This release is also beautiful in itslef (accessible on your Qobuz account), as it features a photo book containing beautiful portraits of Cecila Bartoli taken by Roman photographer Viviane Purdom, who has devoted her life to masterfully shooting great classical musicians. Happy anniversary indeed! © François Hudry/Qobuz

The Tetralogy in China: even Wagner himself would never have dreamt it, even in his wildest dreams of world conquest armed with his "Gesamtkunstwerk". But Hong Kong Philharmonic finished recording the Götterdämmerung in January 2018, led by their musical director Jaap van Zweden. It is the product of four years of public performances and live recordings, a fine recipe for preserving the vivaciousness and continuity of the work. And if Wagner had had such a high-quality orchestra at his disposal, maybe he would have had the Bayreuth festival set up on the bank of the Pearl River in order to see real justice done for his masterpiece... The record itself brings in some of the most experienced voices of the time. The "touchstone versions" have some stiff competition in the form of this new complete edition. The Hong Kong Philharmonic may lack some of the sometimes-weighty "traditions" of some other outfits, but they play this music as if it had just been written… © SM/Qobuz
