Shrouded in an awkward acoustic which is hardly customary for Berlin's Teldex Studio, the latest recording by Matthias Goerne and Korean pianist Seong-Jin Cho (First Prize in the 2015 Chopin Competition) is devoted to twilight Lieder by Wagner, Pfitzner and Richard Strauss.

Twilight ("Abendrot" in German), an essential component of German Romanticism, expresses the deep, dark side of the human soul, often in a tragic or dramatic tone, barely tempered by an oppressive light that prematurely withers the flowers of memory.

The famous Wesendonck-Lieder, for which Wagner was inspired by an impossible love whose harmonies foreshadow those of Tristan and Isolde, find in Matthias Goerne's deep voice a performer to equal their inspiration. The German baritone has long been a supporter of the music of Hanz Pfitzner, a contemporary of Richard Strauss who is often rather academic for Latin ears. What a pleasure to discover this bouquet of Lieder, which evoke the ever-renewed miracle of nature, and in which seasons and landscapes are robed in strong nostalgia.

Richard Strauss follows through the metaphors of the sun: darkening (Traum durch die Dämmerung), promising great future joys (Morgen) or eternal rest (Ruhe, meine Seele!); dreams of peace and beauty (Freundliche Vision) and the weariness of a fading life (Im Abendrot). This album reflects the black diamond of melancholy, and its three composers complement each other delightfully. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Picasso, when painting meets music

Picasso's modernist genius swiftly stretched beyond the pictorial and spread into music and dance, two art forms with which the Spanish painter always maintained a close relationship, to the point of influencing composer friends he met along the way.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.

Bruno Walter, Memories of a Departed Legend

Listening to Bruno Walter’s recordings, in light of the splendid remastered editions published by Sony Classical, you tap into a truly humanistic culture. A tremendous conductor, music was his vocation, a way of life and an art of thought. His recordings have conserved his art vocal music, intense but never sentimental, thanks to a clear linearity complemented by a versatile rhythm, ensuring clarity, coherence and vigour.
