The string quartet Brooklyn Rider, whose name is inspired by that of the Russo-German Blaue Reiter group of artists, has gained attention and audiences for its accessible performances and recordings, which reach far beyond the concert-music tradition for their source materials. With The Brooklyn Rider Almanac the group has commissioned short quartets from a variety of composers who come mostly from jazz and rock; these in turn were asked to base their pieces on a creative figure who had served as a muse in recent years. Some, such as progressive bluegrass singer/songwriter Aiofe O'Donovan (William Faulkner) and jazz guitarist Bill Frisell (John Steinbeck), turn to nonmusical figures, and here the inspiration would be a bit hard to detect without knowing ahead of time. This is a bit disappointing in the case of Frisell, an immensely influential figure who arguably has provided the conceptual basis for much of what Brooklyn Rider does. For the composers who have chosen musical muses, however, the references are quite clear. Jazzman Vijay Iyer seems to have been enlivened by the challenge of paying homage to James Brown on a string quartet without having the whole thing come off as a novelty, and Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche reveals an affinity even his fans may not have known about for German electronic artist Jens Massel. Like much of what Brooklyn Rider does, the collection is uneven, but typical again is the directness and engaging quality of the whole.

Jonas Kaufmann in 10 Key Albums

With his flattering physique reminiscent of a handsome romantic, German Jonas Kaufmann has successfully modernised the image of opera tenors, long considered as unrepentant tumblers… Beyond his powerful and versatile voice, Jonas Kaufmann possesses an immense repertoire in several languages, masters all styles of opera, from Wagner to Verdi or Puccini, and sings the lied or the French opera to perfection. A great admirer of Fritz Wunderlich, he started his career “the old fashioned way”, in a company touring around small German theatres before taking off on his own towards a prodigious career. After a chaotic year in 2017 due to a ruptured blood vessel on his vocal chords, Jonas Kaufmann seems to have fully recovered and is working on countless new projects. Qobuz looks back on his career, highlighting 10 albums.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.

Martha Argerich: The Untameable Pianist

For over 60 years the Argentinian pianist Martha Argerich has amazed audiences all over the world with her wild, impulsive playing and her constant risk-taking, overcoming every technical difficulty by turning each of her performances into a fascinating journey.
