This recording represents a slice of a vanished world: pianist Nelly Akopian-Tamarina studied in Moscow in the 1950s and 1960s, and her teacher was Alexander Goldenweiser, a friend of Scriabin and Rachmaninov, and a carrier of traditions stretching well back into the 19th century. Her career was interrupted by disfavor with Soviet authorities in the 1970s, but has been resumed in her old age with compelling results. Your mileage, certainly, may vary. These are highly individualistic -- not to say idiosyncratic -- versions of these Brahms standards. Check out the Four Ballades, Op. 10, where the final B major ballade checks in at more than three and a half minutes longer than the straightforward version of Alfred Brendel of some years ago. It would not be possible to differ more than she does from Brendel. Akopian-Tamarina is intimate, reflective, dreamy: too much so for some, brilliantly right for others. She tends to favor slow tempos, but the Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Handel, Op. 24, is explosively fast in parts. You might find that in the abstract world of the variation set she is pushing things too far, yet she finds the ecstasy in this oversized set, which was one of the few works in which Brahms seemed to investigate the lessons of late Beethoven. You wouldn't want this as your only recording of the Brahms Ballades and Op. 24 variations, yet you probably shouldn't ignore it, either.

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.
