Two cantatas by Telemann – logically unknown, as he wrote some 1,700 of them − only one by Bach – but one that reached cult status: Ich will den Kreuzstab gerne tragen (I will gladly carry the Cross) −, here’s what’s on offer by tenor Christoph Prégardien (of German origin despite the “é”), and… Wait a second: even though we don’t exactly know for whom Telemann’s cantatas were originally written, Ich will den Kreuzstab was designed for a baritone, not a tenor, and there is no version transposed by Bach himself. But Christoph Prégardien, who’s now over sixty years old, opted to play it humble (or safe) and work with a much deeper range than Tamino or Ottavio, knowing that tenors can very well experience a loss in quality. A commendable decision that allows him to add some beautiful years to an already long and successful career as well as a change in repertoire. His very lyrical interpretation of these three cantatas demonstrates his commitment to the opera, as these cantatas are real dramatic scenes. Telemann, in particular, appears astonishing as ever with his unreal imagination and constant elegance that never gets in the way of profound emotion. For the overture, exit music and intermissions, the Vox Orchester offers some purely orchestral pages from Handel, Hasse and Telemann. © SM/Qobuz

In your panoramas...
Glenn Gould, Extravaganza

How can I describe – let alone define – this truly one-of-a-kind pianist? As an alien, perhaps. An alien who whisks us away at supersonic speed before slowing down to land on an infinite world where there is time for everything. It is the acceptance and cultivation of his otherness (or his alienness?) that has made this unconventional pianist one of the greatest and most loved (and criticised) musicians ever.

Radu Lupu: an Understated Genius

Radu Lupu was a poet, magician and pianist who pursued the indescribable. The Romanian artist’s musical approach was brought to life by his tormented and fiercely introverted personality, which was always shrouded in mystery. When sat at his piano, he would knead the keys like dough, seeking a powerful, consistent sound. Radu Lupu passed away on the 17th of April 2022, leaving behind a relatively small, yet incredibly valuable, discographic legacy.
