Countertenor Max Emanuel Cencic has emerged as a new star of the specialty partly through fearless programming, and this collection of Arie Napoletane, Neapolitan arias or arias from Naples, is no exception. There really isn't a "Neapolitan school." Rather, Naples was on the musical cutting edge in the second quarter of the 18th century, and the arias here represent both a classic opera seria style, in the pieces by the massively prolific Alessandro Scarlatti, and music by the composers who pointed the way toward the melodically simpler future of Gluck and eventually Mozart, like Leonardo Leo and Leonardo Vinci. These latter are hardly household names, and Cencic, offering several recorded premieres, renders a valuable service simply by finding and choosing the deliberate and sensuous arias heard here. Moreover, the album's stylistic contrasts play to Cencic's strengths. Countertenors have their specialties, but Cencic does it all well, from big heroic pieces like Nicola Porpora's "Quel vasto, quel fiero" (track one) from the opera Polifemo, to Leo's "No, non vedete mai" (track eight), from Siface. The next step, as with Handel and Vivaldi, is to mount a modern production of one of these pieces -- Cencic has laid all the groundwork in introducing the repertory. A curious feature of the album is the inclusion at the end of a Harpsichord Concerto in D major, credited to Domenico Auletta. The birth and death dates given for this composer actually correspond to those of that composer's father, Pietro Auletta. Nothing about this work appears in the album notes, and it seems to have been tacked on at the end, performed by the album's conductor, Maxim Emelyanychev, whose ensemble Il Pomo d'Oro is beautifully matched to Cencic's range of skills. The concerto form seems more likely for the younger Auletta, but whoever composed the thematically expansive work, it's another unique discovery on an album with a lot of them.

10 Versions of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique

As a proper manifesto of French romanticism, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique marked the 19th century as much as Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring impacted the 20th. Composed in Paris − which at the time was a global crucible for artistic creation − these two masterpieces catapulted musical language into another dimension. On December 5th, 1830 the revolutionary work of 27-year-old Hector Berlioz deeply moved the musicians present in the small room of the old academy of music, among whom were Meyerbeer and Liszt, who were impressed by the extraordinary audacity of this piece presented just three years after Beethoven’s death.

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.
