To mark his debut on Deutsche Grammophon with the Philadelphia Orchestra, Yannick Nézet-Séguin pays tribute to his legendary predecessor on the podium, Leopold Stokowski. The transcriptions of Bach's organ music are among Stokowski's most celebrated achievements, and none is more famous than his expansive arrangement of the Toccata and Fugue in D minor, which was prominently featured in Walt Disney's Fantasia. It's a classic showpiece for the orchestra, as are Stokowski's fulsome orchestrations of the "Little" Fugue in G minor, and the Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor. Somewhat less obvious is the choice of Igor Stravinsky's Le Sacre du printemps, though Stokowski gave the work its American premiere and recorded it for RCA Victor in 1929 with the Philadelphia Orchestra, so its place on this program is justified. Not that Nézet-Séguin would present a slavish imitation of Stokowski's interpretation, because modern standards of performance are so much higher than when the work was still a novelty, and the Philadelphia Orchestra today is far more skilled in playing this piece. Nézet-Séguin's reading is much faster and sharper than Stokowski's, and the digital reproduction is far superior for depth, tone colors, and details. Indeed, this is one of the finest modern performances of Le Sacre on CD, and fans of the piece will find much to get excited about. To round out the disc, a performance of Stravinsky's Pastorale is offered as an encore. Highly recommended.

The Paradox of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Studio

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.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.
