Cecilia Bartoli takes us on a journey leading from Italy to Russia which traces the development of opera in St. Petersburg. Through the actions of three powerful Tsarists, the previously non-existent musical life of the entire nation was awoken: Anna of Russia (Anna Ivanovna), Elizabeth I (Elizabeth Petrovna, daughter of Peter the Great) and Catherine II (Sophia Augusta Frederica of Anhalt-Zerbst). In addition to attracting performers, they also attracted many Italian composers, the first of whom would be Francesco Araia, followed by Manfredini and Cimarosa, among others. The program of this album follows original themes adored by Bartoli herself, and includes some long lost treasures by other composers such as Hermann Friedrich Raupach - the first harpsichordist and composer of the court following the dismissal of Araia. It is by sifting through the archives of the Mariinsky Theatre that Cecilia Bartoli has gathered this anthology opera excerpts, most of which are previously unpublished.

What a story! Angela. The woman, the career, the discs.

PALERMO, October 2017. – Charming, funny, mischievous, open, this is the impression that Angela Gheorghiu gave us when we at Qobuz met her recently for the release of her latest album. You have to be wary of reputations, and especially of the one that paints Gheorghiu only as a capricious shrew. More than that, she’s a woman who reflects upon the image she gives off… and who wants to do her best. She struggles against what Philippe Beaussant called “Malscène” (junk scene) in an essay published in 2005 —as we say junk food in the world of cuisine. In tune with the academician and musicologist deceased in 2016, Angela Gheorghiu fights a desperate battle against directors who, according to her, destroy the masterpieces of lyrical art by denaturing them instead of serving them.

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.

In this new and atmospheric piece, he evokes the ferocious rivalry which set Porpora against Handel in London...
