"Seren" means star in Welsh, and few are the stars that burn more intensely than trebles, or boy sopranos, as Americans have it, for they have only a very short time, sometimes measured in months before it's all over. Treble Cai Thomas seemingly emphasizes this by inviting Aksel Rykkvin as a guest on Karl Jenkins' Ave verum. Just a few years ago, it was Rykkvin who was the star treble, but now he's a baritone. Thomas sets out here to play to his strengths. He has a Welsh song to reflect his heritage, the ubiquitous "Pie Jesu" of Fauré, a couple of slow Handel tunes, some modern crossover material, and a few pieces of pop minimalism. Perhaps Thomas' strongest pieces are the ones that stand out from the program: Charles Villiers Stanford's The Blue Bird and a really haunting version of the folk song The Ash Grove, but all of the music inhabits a moderate vocal range, is in moderate tempos, varying only in flavor. Thomas's voice rests easily in all the pieces, and, unstressed, it's gorgeous, with startling clarity and a tinge of melancholy that's especially affecting. Perhaps to add more variety, Thomas uses several backing groups; this works well, with his voice foregrounded slightly differently each time. Savor the voice while you may.

Il paradosso dello studio di Esa-Pekka Salonen

Esa-Pekka Salonen, acclamato direttore d'orchestra e prolifico compositore con oltre 60 album all'attivo, evoca il suo approccio al lavoro in studio, così specifico per la musica classica.

Nils Frahm: il pianoforte come non lo avete mai sentito suonare

Salutato dai critici di musica classica come dagli amanti di esperimenti elettronici, il talento di Nils Frahm ha messo d’accordo tutti negli ultimi dieci anni. Che usi un organo da chiesa o un sintetizzatore dotato di pedali per effetti, il pianista tedesco guarda sempre avanti. Impossibile non restarne affascinati.
