With an ever-increasing string of prestigious prizes to Vox Luminis's name – their various Gramophone Awards including winning the 2019 Choral Category for their Buxtehude Abendmusiken – it's impossible not to expect high things of each new offering from this Belgian early music vocal ensemble under the direction of Lionel Meunier. All the more so, though, for this latest exploration of the German Baroque repertoire they've made their calling card, because not only is it the first time they've taken the music of Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber (c1644-1704) into the studio, but this recording also marks the beginning of a collaboration with another internationally acclaimed period ensemble, the Freiburger Barockorchester, which appears here in its consort formation.

The good news is that the results are magnificent. Complementing and bookending the Biber are a handful of works by Christoph Bernhard (1628-1692), Johann Joseph Fux (1660-1741) and Johann Michael Nicolai (1629-1685), and it's Bernhard's Herr, nun lässest du deinen Diener in Friede fahren that sits as the curtain raise – a luxuriously sighing beauty which gives us the pleasure of being introduced to the various artists one by one as it slowly blossoms out from its organ and solo violin opening. Before the voices even arrive, the luminous-toned and lucid-textured FBO have given us a profoundly soulful song without words, after which the gradual layering of fresh voices, everything wonderfully shaped and impeccably blended, is feeling so transcendental that you're almost wondering where they've given us the emotional peak too early, and left themselves nowhere further to go. But no. In fact, the intimate understanding of the texts, the warmed crystal purity of the voices (what a soprano sound....), the corresponding expression from the instrumentalists, the perfect balancing of all of these voices with each other, and the sheer freshness of the readings, don't dip for a second across the hour which follows. Further tutti highlights include the nimble, crisp articulation and urgent energy of the Biber Requiem's Dies Irae, a major-keyed movement more akin to jubilant dance than the sombre-toned hell and brimstone number that these words tends to bring to mind. Also the joyous, easy flow of the concluding Omnis terra adoret, K. 183 by Fux. Treats from the FBO alone meanwhile include the infectious playfulness with which the sweetly earthy-toned strings circle and bow to each other over Fux's Sonata a 6 in A minor; and throughout, the softly unobtrusive colour coming from the brass.

In short, this is feeling like the start of a beautiful relationship. © Charlotte Gardner/Qobuz

Los Grandes Angulares...
Nils Frahm, nuevas vías para el piano

Respetado tanto por los críticos de música clásica como por los aficionados a las sonoridades electrónicas, el talento de Nils Frahm concita unanimidad desde hace una década. Ya se sirva de un órgano de iglesia o de un sintetizador conectado a múltiples pedales de efectos, el pianista alemán mira siempre hacia el futuro y parece adelantarse a todos.

John Barry, en la variedad está el gusto

La música para el cine precisa una sensibilidad y destreza especial a fin de desenvolverse con dignidad en todos los estilos: del sonido discotequero para una escena de night-club a un madrigal para un film de época, el compositor cinematográfico debe saber desempeñarse en cualquier campo. Y John Barry no dejó de demostrarnos, una y otra vez, que fue uno de los mejores autores de bandas sonoras, capaz de abarcar todos los géneros cinematográficos y musicales.

Tim Burton en 10 álbumes

Ya sea con sus films en imagen real o de animación, recurriendo a la técnica de stop-motion, Tim Burton ha ido construyendo a lo largo de más de tres décadas un universo cinematográfico donde lo maravilloso y la poesía se amalgaman con lo gótico y el humor negro. Y, mayormente, ha sido el compositor Danny Elfman el encargado de acompañarle en esta aventura. Sin las imágenes de Burton, la música de Elfman no habría sido la misma, y lo mismo podría decirse al contrario. Como se sigue comprobando este 2019 gracias a la conmovedora Dumbo.
