This disc of early choral works by Bizet includes the cantata Clovis et Clotilde, written in 1857 when he was 18, won the Prix de Rome, and he wrote the Te Deum while in Rome in 1858. Both works show remarkable assurance for a composer so young. A precocious talent, he had written his popular Symphony in C when he was 17. The cantata, like the vast majority of pre-modern Prix de Rome winners, was written to fulfill a rigid set of procedural expectations that rarely unleashed a composer's most creative efforts. (Debussy's L'Enfant prodigue is perhaps the only winning piece to have anything close to a place in the repertoire.) Scored for soprano, tenor, baritone, and orchestra, Clovis et Clotilde concerns the fifth century Frankish king whose conversion assured the primacy of the Roman Church in the region. The music is reminiscent of French and Italian opera of the era, and offers evidence of Bizet's gifts as a dramatic composer. In the equally operatic Te Deum, for soprano, tenor, chorus, and orchestra, Bizet's debt to his teacher Gounod is transparent, and particularly recalls the older composer's St. Cecilia Mass, with which Bizet was intimately familiar. Of the soloists, tenor Philippe Do has a pleasant, open, and resonant voice, and he makes the strongest impression. Choeur Régional Nord-Pas-de-Calais and Orchestra National de Lille under the leadership of Jean-Claude Casadesus deliver earnest performances. Naxos' sound is warm and balanced.

Undervalued: a Look Back on Female Composers

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho and Clara Schumann, several women have managed to break through the macho codes of the milieu and become composers. While the classical music landscape has been largely dominated by men in recent centuries, the work of their female colleagues, whether pioneers or contemporaries, is just as fascinating. Here we put eleven undervalued figures of female composition in the spotlight.

Nelson Freire, a Humble Virtuoso

A child prodigy in his native country, the Brazilian pianist who passed away in November 2021 kept his distance from the noisy fanfare of fame. His enormous hands and his natural and virtuoso technique always assisted his full, powerful and mellow sound. Here Qobuz looks back at the career of a musician that for a long time was the “best-kept secret in the world of the piano”.
