Here’s a composer whose work we’d love to hear more often, whether it’d be in concert or recorded: Villa-Lobos. Some may have forgotten he wrote, among other things, a dozen symphonies from his first steps in the music world in 1916 to his mature years in 1957. And recently, arguably the best orchestra in Brazil – Orquestra Sinfônica do Estado de São Paulo (São Paulo Symphony Orchestra), here led by Brazilian maestro Isaac Karabtchevsky – performed and recorded Villa Lobos’ first two symphonies: the First, "O Imprevisto" (The Unforeseen) composed in 1916 and created around 1919-20, and the Second, “Ascenção” (Ascension) composed in 1917, reviewed throughout the years and created only in 1944. The vitality of this formidable and always hungry creator can undeniably be heard in these two masterpieces, although the influence of Brazilian folklore can’t quite yet be heard; indeed these symphonies were written when Villa-Lobos used to immerse himself in Milhaud and Debussy’s work, while drawing from the teachings of d’Indy and his Cours de composition musicale (Musical Composition Course). A composer worth rediscovering without any hesitation! © SM/Qobuz

Nils Frahm, an Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.

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.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.
