This 2007 recording of Amahl and the Night Visitors features the Nashville Symphony Orchestra and members of the Chicago Symphony Chorus. Conducted by Alastair Willis, it's a solid reading of the opera, but not one likely to supplant the original version of the 1951 production for NBC television, led by Thomas Schippers, who had an uncanny sense of the timing and rhythmic flexibility Menotti's scores need to be maximally effective, and to keep things flowing dramatically and musically. In the title role, Ike Hawkersmith sounds very young, and while his performance lacks the vocal polish of some Amahls, his youthful sound gives his performance a special poignancy. He comes across as a convincingly spunky and strong-willed pre-adolescent, which certainly fits the composer's conception of the character and is a nice change from the squeaky-clean choirboy sound of singers who are frequently cast in this role. The adults perform with conviction, but don't leave strong personal imprints on the roles of the Mother, the Kings, and the Page. The novelty of this release is the premiere recording of Menotti's late choral work My Christmas (1987), for men's chorus and chamber ensemble. It's a pleasant but entirely innocuous piece with little of the poetic or musical charm and integrity that make Amahl so enduringly and deservedly popular. George Mabry leads members of the Nashville Symphony Chorus and the Nashville Symphony Orchestra in a committed performance. Naxos' sound is clean and present, and creates a good sense of dramatic space.

Le sinfonie elettroniche di Mason Bates

Come, non conoscete (ancora) Mason Bates? Eppure è uno dei nomi più presenti sulla scena nordamericana. Nato nel 1977, Bates è insieme compositore (soprattutto sinfonista e lirico) e DJ di musica elettronica (con lo pseudonimo DJ Masonic): due poli apparentemente opposti, che lui invece si delizia particolarmente a mescolare. Circa metà della sua opera sinfonica e lirica include, in un modo o nell’altro, sonorità elettroniche, perlopiù suoni “di tutti i giorni”, preregistrati e restituiti in tempo reale in base alla partitura. In occasione dell’uscita della sua fantastica opera The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, Qobuz si è intrattenuto con questo personaggio fuori dai canoni.

Gounod romantico e mistico

Artefice principale del rinnovamento della musica francese nella seconda metà del XIX secolo accanto al suo predecessore Berlioz, che ammirava, ed ai suoi allievi Bizet, Saint-Saëns, Massenet, i quali veneravano la sua fede nell’Arte, Charles Gounod (1818-1893), mistico ed incantatore, romantico alla ricerca di un nuovo classicismo, deve la propria fama ad alcuni capolavori che ne sminuiscono il calibro. Una discografia in pieno sviluppo permette di scoprirne la musica nella sua diversità: strumentale, vocale, sacra e lirica.
