Decca's 2010 recording of Bach's Christmas Oratorio is notable for the extraordinarily lively and supple leadership of Riccardo Chailly. The opening is breathtaking in it evocation of a bustling celebration, with both orchestra and chorus practically bursting with irrepressible excitement. He is equally effective in the moments of serene grandeur and in the gravity of the suffering foreshadowed in the passion chorales. It's an altogether fully realized and dramatically propulsive rendering of the oratorio. The Gewandhaus Orchestra uses modern instruments, but the players convincingly convey the rough energy and the refinement of the music. The sound of Dresdner Kammerchor is full but lean, warm but focused, and the singers bring great vitality and expressiveness to the choruses. All the soloists are very fine (and the blend in the ensembles is excellent), but tenors Martin and Wolfram Lattke standout out. Martin Lattke in the role of the Evangelist has a voice that is light but pure and secure, and he brings a headlong urgency to the narrative; even non-German speakers are likely to be held rapt by the naturalness of his beguiling storytelling. In the tenor arias, Wolfram Lattke has a limpid tone and phrasing, and the Shepherd's Aria is especially lovely. Soprano Carolyn Sampson, alto Wiebke Lehmkuhl, and bass Konstantin Wolff sing with effortless ease and a sure understanding of period style. Decca's sound is clean, detailed, and nicely ambient. This performance would make a fine introduction to the piece, and the felicities of the singing and playing should delight listeners who are already fans.

Album Description

Decca's 2010 recording of Bach's Christmas Oratorio is notable for the extraordinarily lively and supple leadership of Riccardo Chailly. The opening is breathtaking in it evocation of a bustling celebration, with both orchestra and chorus practically bursting with irrepressible excitement. He is equally effective in the moments of serene grandeur and in the gravity of the suffering foreshadowed in the passion chorales. It's an altogether fully realized and dramatically propulsive rendering of the oratorio. The Gewandhaus Orchestra uses modern instruments, but the players convincingly convey the rough energy and the refinement of the music. The sound of Dresdner Kammerchor is full but lean, warm but focused, and the singers bring great vitality and expressiveness to the choruses. All the soloists are very fine (and the blend in the ensembles is excellent), but tenors Martin and Wolfram Lattke standout out. Martin Lattke in the role of the Evangelist has a voice that is light but pure and secure, and he brings a headlong urgency to the narrative; even non-German speakers are likely to be held rapt by the naturalness of his beguiling storytelling. In the tenor arias, Wolfram Lattke has a limpid tone and phrasing, and the Shepherd's Aria is especially lovely. Soprano Carolyn Sampson, alto Wiebke Lehmkuhl, and bass Konstantin Wolff sing with effortless ease and a sure understanding of period style. Decca's sound is clean, detailed, and nicely ambient. This performance would make a fine introduction to the piece, and the felicities of the singing and playing should delight listeners who are already fans.

Radu Lupu: an Understated Genius

Radu Lupu was a poet, magician and pianist who pursued the indescribable. The Romanian artist’s musical approach was brought to life by his tormented and fiercely introverted personality, which was always shrouded in mystery. When sat at his piano, he would knead the keys like dough, seeking a powerful, consistent sound. Radu Lupu passed away on the 17th of April 2022, leaving behind a relatively small, yet incredibly valuable, discographic legacy.

The Earth’s Song: The World of Gustav Mahler

What could have prompted Gustav Mahler to compose a work as unclassifiable as this one? Written between 1907 and 1908, a pivotal period in Mahler's life, The Song of the Earth occupies a special place within his oeuvre. It combines the “fin de siècle” spirit with the fascination for the exotic that was spreading amongst his peers at the time. Vienna was in turmoil when this music was composed, and the piece oscillates between the notions of farewell and new beginnings. With a lot of layers to peel back, The Song of the Earth definitely merits a closer look.

Nelson Freire, a Humble Virtuoso

A child prodigy in his native country, the Brazilian pianist who passed away in November 2021 kept his distance from the noisy fanfare of fame. His enormous hands and his natural and virtuoso technique always assisted his full, powerful and mellow sound. Here Qobuz looks back at the career of a musician that for a long time was the “best-kept secret in the world of the piano”.
