Christina Pluhar has the gift of conceiving rich, unique and enchanting programmes. Better still, she knows how to carefully choose the musicians best suited to undertake them. At the head of her incomparable ensemble L'Arpeggiata, since the early 2000s she has been unearthing numerous pearls of repertoire, which she threads into a necklace to create a masterpiece.

"Alla Napoletana" is no exception to the rule: Pluhar resurrects for the occasion numerous manuscripts collected over the last two decades, resulting in this programme dedicated to 17th century Naples. In the age when all was possible that was favourable to strange carnivalesque transformations, scholarly and popular music maintained a more than porous border, until they fused together for the listener's great pleasure. The marks of theatricality borrowed from the "commedia dell'arte" offer a striking relief to these pieces which are fascinating in their formal and textual originality and reveal to us great modernity as well as the freedom of the tone of their composers. The grand ancient and poetic theme of love—but especially of lovesickness—is portrayed in various ways: satire, parody, elegy...

If the tremendous qualities of the combined talents of Pluhar and her ensemble no longer need proving, we are also delighted by the performance of the soloists, in particular countertenor Vincenzo Capezzuto, who is hilarious in the more farcical pieces. © Pierre Lamy/Qobuz

In your panoramas...
Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.

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.

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.
