One might wonder what an album that only devoted a third of its length to singing has to do with the Fine Singing Magazine. It’s only that the singing offered—as it happens Bach’s Ich habe genug cantata—is so wonderful that the writer of those little words figured it was worth being included. The wonderful singer that we are talking about is the German baritone Stephan Genz, whose velvet voice, perfect elocution, and above all complete lack of any ego in a vocal emission extraordinarily tender, sends many previous recordings (including some “references”, like for instance Fischer-Dieskau whose style, according to your humble servant, is way too saccharine, pompous and affected, especially when singing Bach) back to the fold. Surprisingly, Genz is accompanied here by the Russian National Orchestra, which usually doesn’t stand out in this repertoire; and even rarer, this very orchestra is conducted by the metropolitan Hilarion (and not “Hilarion Alfeyev”: Hilarion is his monastic name, Alfeyev his civil name), a surprising polymath equally as comfortable with theology, ancient languages, philosophy and music, because he composes himself and doesn’t hesitate to conduct—with an extraordinary modesty in his musical elocution, we’re a thousand miles away from Bach conducted by Karajan, but also by some previous baroque fundamentalists…—the greatest works from the holy repertoire. So we would like to welcome Genz and the metropolitan Hilarion to the Fine Singing and Metropolitan Conducting Magazine!

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.

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.
