Unlike collections that focus on a single composer, or sets of songs by various composers, this CD featuring soprano Susan Graham and pianist Malcolm Martineau includes one song each by 22 French composers, spanning almost a century. Arranged in groups according to style, essentially, but not strictly chronologically, the songs form a compendium of compositional trends from the 1860s to the 1930s, with one selection from the 1960s. They range from the romantic mélodies of Bizet and Franck to Poulenc's monodrama "La Dame de Monte Carlo." In additional to all the composers one would expect to find represented, there are real finds by the largely forgotten Emile Paladilhe and Alfred Bachelet. The warmth of Graham's voice is well suited to these songs, and she brings them a velvety legato. She is equally at home in the serenely lyrical songs, like Hahn's "À Chloris," and the more dramatic, narrative songs like Caplet's "Le Corbeau et le Renard," and the amusing, faux-spooky "Dance Macabre" by Saint-Saëns. Martineau provides a subtle and supportive accompaniment. Onyx's sound is clean and vibrant, with a good sense of presence.

Nils Frahm, an Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.

The Paradox of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Studio

Esa-Pekka Salonen is an acclaimed finnish conductor and prolific composer. With over 60 albums under his belt, he has heavily contributed to the history of musical interpretation. This is an interview with an exceptional musician, who discusses his unique approach to working on classical music in the studio.

Erased Tapes, a Not-so-classic Label

Since its birth in 2007, Erased Tapes has made a name for itself as one of the most innovative labels of the last 15 years and enjoyed great commercial success. Although some fail to see past its neoclassical shopfront (Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds), the London-based label explores the outer limits of ambient, electronica and experimental with a catalogue that's smoothly curated by the German Robert Raths. Qobuz takes a closer look.
