At only 26 years of age, Jan Lisiecki already boasts an astonishingly extensive and prolific discography. So it should come as no surprise that he is releasing his eighth Deutsche Grammophon album, just one year after his last set of recordings. With Chopin's Nocturnes, the Canadian pianist returns to his beginnings as a piano player, back to simplicity.

The recent lockdown period has allowed many artists to flourish in the studio, and Jan Lisiecki is among them. Recording his album last autumn in Berlin's famed Meistersaal, the pianist described how the social standstill has given him a new understanding of time, work and his relationship with music: "They were the most pleasant and relaxed recording sessions I've ever experienced; they were perfect for the Nocturnes. I was able to engage with each piece at my own pace and live with them all in a way that felt completely natural and organic."

From an early age, Lisiecki found himself intrigued by the Polish composer’s work in a special way. It was the Nocturnes - especially Op.9 No.1 - that first sparked his connection with Chopin, and they remain significant to him to this day. Over 21 pieces, written by the composer between 1829 and 1847, the Canadian takes us into a world of emotions, timbres and those enchanted melodic-cantabile phrases so typical of Chopin, underpinned by rich harmonization. The genre was relatively new at the time, dedicated to the evening and the night and allowing each performer to evolve their personal emotions and creative freedom, something to which Lisiecki completely surrenders. Extremely simple, soulful and astonishingly slow, the individual nocturnes glide along the keys, almost as if the pianist were too modest to show his virtuosity, but entirely in the spirit of Chopin, who once said himself about music: "Simplicity is the final achievement." © Lena Germann/Qobuz

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.
