Elgar's Enigma Variations, Cockaigne Overture, and Serenade for Strings have been recorded extremely often, but rarely any better than they are here by Mark Elder and Hallé -- Manchester's rebranded Hallé Orchestra. They truly capture the essence of the fin de siècle English master, offering both spit and polish and élan. Elder emerges as a terrific interpreter, delivering a kaleidoscopic and emotionally ranging Variations. Almost as good is his spirited account of the Serenade with a playful opening Allegro piacevole and an affecting central Larghetto. But best of all, perhaps, is Elder's swaggering Cockaigne, with its impetuous themes, sparkling colors, and glorious climax. As a bonus, the release includes the world-premiere recording of the Variations' original Finale, which differs from the definitive version only in that it doesn't include the coda. While the published version is far more successful, the dedicated Elgarian will want to at least hear the master's first thoughts.

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.
