Will Ackerman continued weaving textures explored three-years before in Past Light, his deft guitar accompanied by side instruments such as bass, lyricon, violin, English horn, piano, cello, charongo, and zampona. The all-digital 1980s production is more heavily affected, thinner and more brittle than his early albums, yet despite the dated production, Ackerman moodily evokes a dark, quiet: dare we say 'lunar' ambience? Ackerman's guitar is content to settle into repetitive minimalist patterns, opening up a spacious canvas for the complementary instruments. Reflective and inquisitive, Conferring With the Moon has an idle, dreamy quality. The CD adds a couple of tracks that didn't make it on to the original vinyl release.

Picasso, when painting meets music

Picasso's modernist genius swiftly stretched beyond the pictorial and spread into music and dance, two art forms with which the Spanish painter always maintained a close relationship, to the point of influencing composer friends he met along the way.

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.

A tremendous conductor, music was his vocation, a way of life and an art of thought. His recordings have conserved his art vocal music, intense but never sentimental, thanks to a clear linearity complemented by a versatile rhythm, ensuring clarity, coherence and vigour.
