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

Danny Elfman in Ten Albums

From fairy tales to wacky comedies, from the most extraordinary orchestral works to understated pieces, for almost forty years now Danny Elfman has been crafting his unique sound and injecting it into Hollywood productions by the likes of Tim Burton or Gus Van Sant. We look back over ten albums from his career, exploring both his essential works and less well-known compositions.

Orfeo Orchestra: 18th Century French Baroque, Resurrected

Orfeo Orchestra (conducted by György Vashegyi), a prolific performer of French baroque music since its birth, has been honoured in recent years by both Palazetto Bru Zane and the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles (CMBV) with invitations to record a series of explorations of French lyrical music – both baroque and classical.

The British Blues Boom, Chronicle of a Revolution

If Joe Bonamassa has come back with British Blues Explosion, a year after the Rolling Stones’ Blue And Lonesome, it has cemented the fact that the British Blues Boom was more than just a trend. More than a simple musical trend, it was the interest of a younger generation for the great American blues idols that had been ignored in their country, which led to a real revolution, with three major agitators leading the charge, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, considered in the UK as the “Holy Trinity” of rock and guitar. If they were far from being the only musicians involved, it is through their respective careers that we have discovered that blues, far from being an outdated musical genre, is some kind of getaway to other musical areas and has allowed for endless innovations.
