Cecilia Bartoli

Classical - Released November 19, 2021 | Decca Music Group Ltd.

Hi-Res
Seven dramatic arias. We would expect nothing less from Cecilia Bartoli, who loves to play the harpy, at least on stage and on record! In this album, recorded in Basel with the Kammerorchester Basel conducted by Muhai Tang, the Italian diva, so adored by the masses, performs arias composed by Mozart, Haydn, Mysliveček and Beethoven for the great sopranos of their own times.It was not uncommon in those days for arias to be tailored to the style, vocal abilities and range of the cantatrici and singers. Thus Bartoli brings back to life for us the memory of Josepha Duschek, Nancy Storace and the castrato Pietro Benedetti. "Unreleased" proclaims the title of the album, but only those unheard among Cecilia Bartoli's previous recordings, for the arias here performed are, for some, well known, such as Beethoven's Ah! Perfido, Haydn's great Scena di Berenice and Mozart's arias Ah, lo previdi, L’ameró, saró costante and Bella mia fiamma, addio.With the latter, beware of confusion with the aria Ch’io mi scordi di te, K. 490 performed here by Cecilia Bartoli, which is a substitute aria for a partial revival of Idomeneo and not the famous concert aria of the same name (K. 505) for which Mozart wrote a large solo clavier part for himself. The aria sung here by Cecilia Bartoli includes an important solo violin part that Mozart had intended for Count Hatzfeld, played here for our great pleasure by Maxim Vengerov, from whom we hear twice more within this programme. We should emphasise also the pure beauty of an aria from La Clemenza di Tito by Joseph Mysliveček, a contemporary and friend of Mozart who cries out to be rediscovered. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Sheku Kanneh-Mason

Classical - Released November 5, 2021 | Decca Music Group Ltd.

Hi-Res
Despite the Covid pandemic, the Kanneh-Mason siblings probably didn't have too much trouble finding the right partners to make music with. The whole family is bursting with young talent, all seven children are professional classical instrumentalists, and accordingly one imagines the lockdown in the Kanneh-Mason household would've been very musical.Fortunately, this productivity has also been recorded for all outsiders - at least as far as Isata (piano) and her brother Sheku (cello) are concerned. Both siblings have already been highly praised several times for their solo projects, and now they are releasing their first album together, Muse, as a duo on Decca.Isata and Sheku have already performed both Rachmaninoff's and Samuel Barber's cello sonatas together in concert around the world. When their tour had to be interrupted in 2020 due to the pandemic, the duo decided to simply move this unique music into a recording studio. With Barber's Cello Sonata, Op. 6 from the 1930s as well as some arrangements of his songs, the two performers give us a wonderful insight into the still lesser-known repertoire. One quickly gets the impression that it was a great pleasure for both of them to discover the dramatic work and to get to know Barber down to the smallest detail. The highlight of the disc, however, is probably the Rachmaninoff recordings. The wonderful Muza from his 14 Romances, Op. 34 is not only the album's namesake, but also conveys a perfect symbiosis between cello and piano. Without relegating either instrument to the background, the performers rather get the best out of the other. This becomes even clearer in the Cello Sonata, Op. 19, which the composer himself describes as an equal work between piano and cello. Although Rachmaninoff did not stray too often into chamber music, Sheku and Isata Kanneh-Mason manage to elevate it to one of his supreme disciplines. A family project that is more than successful. © Lena Germann/Qobuz
