Considering the vast quantity of recordings that exist of Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 in B flat minor, the overwhelmed listener may wonder how this Capriccio release shapes up before deciding on it. It's an encouraging sign to see Christoph Eschenbach as the conductor, and his handling of the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin is all it should be: well-paced, sympathetic to the music and the soloists, and clear-headed. Yet the reputation of pianist Tzimon Barto doesn't precede him like Eschenbach's does, so listeners deserve to know that, while his playing is technically proficient and at time brilliant, his interpretive skills are open for discussion. No doubt Barto struggled to find ways to make this warhorse interesting, and it is certainly the case that he always keeps the listener guessing his moves. Unfortunately, he tends to favor exaggerated longueur and dramatic pauses, and the concerto becomes excessively drawn-out and tedious because of his vaguely melancholic reading. While this performance of the concerto may bring its share of controversy, the performance of Tchaikovsky's Variations on a Rococo Theme for cello and orchestra is much more engaging and energetic, thanks mostly to Dimitri Maslennikov's elegant cello solos, but also to Eschenbach's skillful direction. This extraordinary performance steals the show from Barto, and what was intended to be a filler piece is instead the most desirable offering of the two. The sound of the concerto recording is decent, but the recording of the Rococo Variations is quite clear and balanced, with credible presence for Maslennikov's part.

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.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.
