John Williams is famous for his extensive career in the film industry and has composed film scores for Star Wars, E.T. and Indiana Jones, to name but a few. He is, however, less well-known for his many fabulous concertos for flute, violin, clarinet, bassoon, cello, trumpet, horn, oboe, as well as for tuba. This particular concerto was composed in 1985 to celebrate the centenary of the Boston Pops Orchestra, whose founder was also the principal tuba player for the orchestra (Williams was the principal conductor at the time having taken over from the infamous Arthur Fiedler who had occupied the role for half a century). Here, the little gem is performed by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Leonard Slatkin with the orchestra’s principal tuba, the larger-than-life Dennis Nulty, as soloist. John Williams’ work is recognizable by his wide range of overtures and dazzling fanfares (his repertoire outside of the world of film includes dozens of pieces for brass or wind orchestras), and a willingness to be a little cheeky in some of his more vivacious themes. This piece highlights how despite it being a large instrument supposedly restricted to playing low notes, the tuba is actually an instrument of tremendous agility and is capable of reaching the high notes incredibly easily. © SM/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.

The Little Tramp: The Great Composer

As the Paris Philharmonic puts on a major exhibition dedicated entirely to his career, it’s the perfect opportunity to take a look back at Charlie Chaplin’s close ties with music. He may be famous as a legendary performer and director, but the man with the iconic bowler hat and cane also composed the music in his films himself.

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.
