Finally, a happy record! It’s a simple recipe: take four experienced singers who know each other well, add two complicit pianists, then pick out some works that are bursting with happiness. It’s rare to find such happiness in Schumann and Brahms’ work. The two composers shared a tendency to lean towards melancholic music, a "Sehnsucht" style which is so characteristic of German romanticism.

Schumann wrote Spanisches Liederspiel Op. 74 in 1849. It’s a kind of love story, the first steps towards happiness. The work requires a theatrical and playful performance, which was perfectly accomplished here at this concert from the end of the 1974 Salzburg Festival, once the press had left the establishment. While there are few written traces that remain of this concert, the recording has preserved it for us. Here, Orfeo brings us this little miracle with four soloists at the top of their game, accompanied by two pianists who are well accustomed to the difficult task of supporting the singers. Shumann’s rare work is complemented by Brahms' famous eighteen vocal waltzes, given the collective title of Liebeslieder-Walzer Op. 52. An exceptional musical achievement. © François Hudry/Qobuz

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.
