This release by Ensemble Resonanz is noteworthy in several ways. First, Ensemble Resonanz is not a Baroque group but has specialized mostly in contemporary music, sometimes in combination with standard repertory. Perhaps there's more money in even the much-recorded Pergolesi Stabat Mater than in their usual fare, or perhaps the motivation was purely artistic. Ensemble Resonanz plays in a historically oriented style, with period bows and, more strikingly, in meantone temperament. Listen to the intervals of a third; the major thirds are brighter, the minor thirds darker, and that plays into the most distinctive feature of the album: the radical emotionalism of the interpretation by Ensemble Resonanz and conductor Riccardo Minasi. Minasi takes the position that for an audience of the 1720s, Pergolesi's music was a real shock, not just the stylistic turning point represented in music history textbooks, but an absolute sensation. Performing the usual version of the Stabat Mater with two solo female singers and ensemble (it was probably written with two castrati in mind), Minasi offers lingered-on dissonances, sharp contrasts, and some striking tempos in, for example, the final "Quando corpus morietur," which seems to enter a kind of somber stasis. Soloists Giulia Semenzato and Lucile Richardot respond with great sympathy to Minasi's ideas. In support of his reading, Minasi can point to the fact that numerous works in the second quarter of the 18th century were attributed to Pergolesi in the hope of goosing sales. One of these, the Salve a duo of composer Joan Rossell, concludes the program here, and it's a gem that in Minasi's hands even extends Pergolesi's emotionalism. For intermezzo, there's a Sonata a quattro, Op. 1, No. 4, of Angelo Ragazzi. It was composed before Pergolesi but attests to the tremendous musical importance of Naples, which in the mid-18th century was one of the ten largest cities in the world. Harmonia Mundi's sound from the Friedrich-Ebert-Halle in Hamburg is too live; Minasi's intense reading can stand on its own without the extra engineering help, but this is a Stabat Mater that demands attention, even with all the options on the market.

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.

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.

Gounod: the Romantic, the Mystic

A major artisan of the renaissance in French music in the second half of the 19th century, alongside his elder colleague Berlioz, whom he admired, and his followers Bizet, Saint-Saëns, and Massenet, who were inspired by his faith in Art, Charles Gounod (1818-1893), a mystic and a charmer, a romantic in search of a new classicism, owed his fame to a few masterpieces, which have overshadowed his daring. A flourishing discography allows us to discover the diversity of his music: instrumental, vocal, religious, and lyrical.
