Overtures from comic operas and operettas are staples of the light music genre, and some of the most popular are included on this 2015 Naxos album by Lance Friedel and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. Because of their memorable tunes, exciting pacing, and colorful orchestration, these effervescent pieces were once ubiquitous in the concert hall and on radio and recordings. While many have slipped into semi-obscurity, among them Peter Cornelius' Overture to Der Barbier von Bagdad, and Adolphe Adam's Overture to Si j'étais roi, such perennials as Emil Nikolaus von Reznicek's Overture to Donna Diana, Ferdinand Hérold's Overture to Zampa, Otto Nicolai's Overture to The Merry Wives of Windsor, and Ermanno Wolf-Ferrari's Overture to Il segreto di Susanna remain favorites and are frequently used to introduce young people to classical music. The 11 selections represent French opéra comique, Viennese operetta, and Italian opera buffa, though the differences in style aren't especially noticeable, except for Domenico Cimarosa's Overture to Il Matrimonio Segreto, which is the sole example from the Classical era. Friedel and his musicians fully communicate the buoyant moods and theatricality of these bon-bons, and the reproduction is clear and detailed, with credible presence and fine separation of parts.

Undervalued: a Look Back on Female Composers

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho and Clara Schumann, several women have managed to break through the macho codes of the milieu and become composers. While the classical music landscape has been largely dominated by men in recent centuries, the work of their female colleagues, whether pioneers or contemporaries, is just as fascinating. Here we put eleven undervalued figures of female composition in the spotlight.

Strauss & Kempe: Elective Affinities

The name of conductor Rudolf Kempe (1910-1976) is indissociable from those of composer Richard Strauss and the Dresden Staatskapelle orchestra. As Warner is now re-releasing the recordings made between 1970 and 1975, Qobuz is putting the spotlight on the Straussian legacy of a precise, often incisive conductor, who always paid the greatest attention to the text and its charms.

Beethoven: Fidelio's Big Adventure

Based on a story from France during the Revolutionary Terror (the story of an intrepid young woman who disguised herself as a man to save her husband from the dungeon), Beethoven's unique opera has had a turbulent life, and has been reworked here and there over the years. New proof of the German composer's musical genius, Fidelio also permitted him to write a musical setting for a libretto that matched his political beliefs.
