Carried off by an intestinal perforation at the age of 33 in Puteaux, at the gates of Paris, this son of Catania is still greatly appreciated in his native city, where this new studio recording of Il pirata, Vincenzo Bellini's first major opera, first performed at La Scala in Milan in 1827, was made. With this work, the young Sicilian author distanced himself from the Rossinian style then in vogue by giving free rein to his incomparable melodic verve.

Chopin's unbounded admiration for Bellini is well known, and the melodic contours of his music ripple through the works of the Polish composer, who was not an admirer of too many other people. The Pirate is full of superb melodies, such as Imogene's aria 'Lo sognai ferito' in the first act, Gualtiero's cantilena 'Pietosa al padre' and the last scene of the work, whose instrumental introduction presages Norma's famous 'Casta diva'.

Recorded in the summer of 2020 at the Teatro Sangiorgi in Catania, a recently restored old Liberty style theatre, this new version, vigorously conducted by Fabrizio Maria Carminati at the head of the Orchestra e Coro del Teatro Massimo Bellini in Catania, is distinguished by its absolute completeness, with all the repeats, original cadenzas and variations written by the singers, and with its rarely performed Finale.

Latvian soprano Marina Rebeka reigns supreme over this recording released by Prima Classic, her own label. Alongside this immense bel canto, Javier Camarena was needed to overcome the extraordinary difficulties of a score that is not sparing of those vocal effects and top notes that can enchant an entire hall. A bel canto specialising in the works of Rossini, Bellini and Donizetti, the Mexican tenor triumphs on the great stages of the world, especially at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, where he is one of the very few singers to be recalled to the stage. © François Hudry/Qobuz

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”.

Mason Bates' weird and wonderful electronic symphonies

What do you mean, you haven’t heard about Mason Bates (yet)? He is one of the hottest names on the North-American music scene. Born in 1977, Bates is a symphonic and lyrical composer as well as an electro DJ (under the alias DJ Masonic) – two completely opposing genres which he takes great delight in mixing. Around half of his symphonic and lyrical work consists, in one way or another, of electronic sounds. The majority of these sounds are “every day sounds”, which are prerecorded and later put into a score. On the release date of his brilliant opera The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, Qobuz interviewed this extraordinary person.

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.
