With this CD of arias by Johann Christian Bach, male soprano Philippe Jaroussky edges further afield from the Baroque repertoire in which he has made his reputation, moving into the Classical period. A 2007 album, Carestini, was devoted to arias sung by the legendary castrato, including music by Gluck (from early in his career), Handel, Graun, and Hasse, and offered some excursions slightly beyond the Baroque, but J.C. Bach wrote the solidly Classical operas seria and concert arias represented here after Carestini's death, between 1760 and 1779. While Jaroussky is fully secure in this repertoire, bringing to it his typically immaculate and imaginative musicianship, impeccable intonation, and remarkable versatility, these arias don't offer the same kinds of opportunities for the dazzling virtuosic agility that characterize his performances of Vivaldi, or the heated emotional intensity of his Monteverdi. Nonetheless, Jaroussky fans who can amend their expectations, and anyone who loves the music of J.C. Bach, should be delighted by his expansion into the music of this era. Jaroussky is the consummate dramatic singer and finds and highlights the theatrical urgency of the arias. His singing expresses his obvious affection for and commitment to this music; each of the arias is marked by passion, whether tenderly yearning, as in Cara, la dolce fiamma, from Adriano in Siria; or furious, as in Tutti nemici, e rei, from the same opera; or both, as in the concert recitative and aria, Sentimi, non partir… Al mio bene. Jérémie Rhorer leads Le Cercle de l'Harmonie in exceptionally supple, graceful, and colorful performances of this music, which Jaroussky describes as "at once so subtle and so sparkling." Virgin's sound is open, clean, and lifelike. The CD can be used to access further material and performances online.

Radu Lupu: an Understated Genius

Radu Lupu was a poet, magician and pianist who pursued the indescribable. The Romanian artist’s musical approach was brought to life by his tormented and fiercely introverted personality, which was always shrouded in mystery. When sat at his piano, he would knead the keys like dough, seeking a powerful, consistent sound. Radu Lupu passed away on the 17th of April 2022, leaving behind a relatively small, yet incredibly valuable, discographic legacy.

The Earth’s Song: The World of Gustav Mahler

What could have prompted Gustav Mahler to compose a work as unclassifiable as this one? Written between 1907 and 1908, a pivotal period in Mahler's life, The Song of the Earth occupies a special place within his oeuvre. It combines the “fin de siècle” spirit with the fascination for the exotic that was spreading amongst his peers at the time. Vienna was in turmoil when this music was composed, and the piece oscillates between the notions of farewell and new beginnings. With a lot of layers to peel back, The Song of the Earth definitely merits a closer look.

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”.
