Alexei Lubimov's 2012 album of Claude Debussy's Préludes for piano is a generous offering, for in addition to presenting Books I and II complete on two discs, it also includes transcriptions for two pianos of the Trois Nocturnes and the Prélude à l'après-midi d'une faune. ECM New Series is best known for its polished releases of contemporary music, though the label has increased its catalog of early modern music, and this package is a fine addition. Lubimov plays with refinement and control in his solo performances, and his palette of tone colors is varied, with a nuanced touch and subtle shadings of phrases. The feeling Lubimov communicates is close to reverie, though the music always has shape and never becomes loose or merely atmospheric. In the transcription performances where Lubimov teams up with Alexei Zuev, there is a bolder, more direct handling of the music, perhaps in recognition of the original orchestral sound, but also because the thickened textures of two pianos admit less delicacy. The reproduction is clean and resonant, so notes are clearly captured despite the abundance of pedaling and the blurred effects so often found in Debussy.

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.

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.

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.
