The star artist on this Finnish release is mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter, and the orchestrations of the eight Sibelius voice-and-piano songs here by Aulis Sallinen were done with her voice specifically in mind. You can sample one of these (perhaps Sippan, "The Anemone") to see how you like the idea: von Otter sounds terrific, and Sallinen accomplishes the feat of staying out of her way. The side effect is that the songs don't sound much like Sibelius in terms of the orchestra. There will be less doubt about the two orchestral tone poems at the beginning, with Hannu Lintu leading a crack Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra. The two works come from the end and the beginning, respectively, of Sibelius' career. Tapiola, Op. 112, from 1926, is given an extraordinary performance, with forest sounds etched clearly out of the moody orchestral background and little explosions of noise popping out startlingly. The early En Saga, Op. 9, perhaps the piece in which Sibelius' Finnish voice began to appear most clearly, likewise gets a powerful rendition of its blood-and-guts final pages. And there will be no doubt at all about Ondine's engineering work, accomplished at the Helsinki Music Centre and catching every orchestral detail. A recommended Sibelius disc/hard drive segment.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.

Bruno Walter, Memories of a Departed Legend

Listening to Bruno Walter’s recordings, in light of the splendid remastered editions published by Sony Classical, you tap into a truly humanistic culture. A tremendous conductor, music was his vocation, a way of life and an art of thought. His recordings have conserved his art vocal music, intense but never sentimental, thanks to a clear linearity complemented by a versatile rhythm, ensuring clarity, coherence and vigour.

Strauss & Kempe: Elective Affinities

The name of conductor Rudolf Kempe (1910-1976) is indissociable from those of composer Richard Strauss and the Dresden Staatskapelle orchestra. As Warner is now re-releasing the recordings made between 1970 and 1975, Qobuz is putting the spotlight on the Straussian legacy of a precise, often incisive conductor, who always paid the greatest attention to the text and its charms.
