Renaud Capuçon's brace of the Brahms and Berg violin concertos makes this an attractive release for Virgin Classics, though the drab cover might make it easy to overlook, and the antique appearance of the artwork could make it off-putting to classical newcomers. Capuçon is one of the most engaging young stars of the violin, and his fresh playing suggests nothing of an old-fashioned or stodgy approach. Accompanied by Daniel Harding and the Vienna Philharmonic, Capuçon plays Brahms with a light, soaring expression that is highly appealing, and his Berg is gentle and reflective, with a transparent line that communicates emotion in a satisfying song-like manner. The impulse in both performances is lyrical, and Capuçon's instincts for preserving a connected melody and suspending it with little show of effort make both concertos marvelous artistic experiences. Virgin's reproduction is rich and warm, especially in the ensemble blend, though the violin is always front and center, and it is never overwhelmed by the orchestra at its fullest or most forceful.

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.
