The Choir of King's College, Cambridge, celebrates a century of its Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, which was inaugurated in 1918 under the direction of King's College chaplain Eric Milner-White. This double-disc collection of historic and modern recordings doesn't go back quite as far as those first Christmas concerts, nor even to the initial radio broadcasts that began in 1928, but 60 years of live broadcasts on the BBC are sampled generously on the first disc, while fresh recordings of the most popular carols are provided on the second CD. Led by Stephen Cleobury and his predecessors, David Willcocks and Philip Ledger, the performances have the reverent but joyous air associated with the finest British church music, and anyone who has a sentimental attachment to this traditional fare will be moved by the loveliness of the voices and the halo-like acoustics of the chapel. Lest any have misgivings about the recordings, the sound is respectable in the earliest track, which dates from 1958, while it becomes progressively cleaner and more focused over the later selections. Highly recommended for fans of Christmas concerts and exceptional choral singing.

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.

Picasso, when painting meets music

Picasso's modernist genius swiftly stretched beyond the pictorial and spread into music and dance, two art forms with which the Spanish painter always maintained a close relationship, to the point of influencing composer friends he met along the way.

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.
