With his 'comic operetta' Candide, which opened unsuccessfully on Broadway in 1956, Leonard Bernstein and his librettist Lillian Hellman used Voltaire's play to hit back at the United States' terrible era of the anti-communist witch-hunt under the aegis of the infamous Senator Joseph McCarthy.

A dizzying tribute to European music, with its brilliant and tender pastiches of opera and operetta, Candide had suffered a long and difficult genesis, interrupted by setbacks, cuts and constant rewrites. A hybrid work between opera and operetta with a sophisticated and refined style, Candide was most assuredly not the work that the fans of musicals were expecting. Despite all the revisions and additions by new lyricists such as Stephen Sondheim and John Wells, the work never found its audience. And yet Bernstein worked on it until the end of his life, conducting and recording for Deutsche Grammophon a final 'definitive' version in New York and at the Barbican Centre in London in December 1989, only a few months before his death.

This new Anglo-American production, recorded live in the Barbican Centre in December 2018 on the occasion of Leonard Bernstein's centenary, is the work of director Garnett Bruce and conductor Marin Alsop, who was a student of Bernstein with whom she had a difficult relationship; the conductor, though so open-minded and generous, was uneasy with a woman at the podium. This version benefits from a golden cast with Leonardo Capalbo's Candide, Jane Archibald's Cunégonde (stratospheric 'Glitter and Be Gay') and the presence of prestigious 'veterans' such as Anne Sofie von Otter as the Old Lady and Sir Thomas Allen as Dr. Pangloss and the recitation. The whole work is conducted with precision, elegance and spirit under the exacting baton of Marin Alsop, who is one of the main architects of this re-appraisal of a work that urgently needs to be (re)discovered. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.

Orfeo Orchestra: 18th Century French Baroque, Resurrected

Orfeo Orchestra (conducted by György Vashegyi), a prolific performer of French baroque music since its birth, has been honoured in recent years by both Palazetto Bru Zane and the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles (CMBV) with invitations to record a series of explorations of French lyrical music – both baroque and classical.

Mason Bates' weird and wonderful electronic symphonies

What do you mean, you haven’t heard about Mason Bates (yet)? He is one of the hottest names on the North-American music scene. Born in 1977, Bates is a symphonic and lyrical composer as well as an electro DJ (under the alias DJ Masonic) – two completely opposing genres which he takes great delight in mixing. Around half of his symphonic and lyrical work consists, in one way or another, of electronic sounds. The majority of these sounds are “every day sounds”, which are prerecorded and later put into a score. On the release date of his brilliant opera The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, Qobuz interviewed this extraordinary person.
