Graindelavoix and its director, Björn Schmelzer, have been praised for their imaginative approach to interpreting early music, especially for emphasizing the qualities of individual voices, as opposed to presenting a blended ensemble sound. This recording of vocal music from the Cambrai manuscript A 410 offers a few motets credited to Gobin de Rains and Eustache le Peintre de Rains, though most of the tracks are by that ubiquitous medieval composer, Anonymous. However, the figure Schmelzer looks to for inspiration is the architect Villard de Honnecourt, whose travels across medieval Europe suggested the methods and choice of repertoire for Graindelavoix's trilogy of CDs, Ossuaires, Confréries, and this third volume, Motets. Schmelzer employs male and female voices, which are accompanied by fiddle, guiterne, and lute, and the pieces represent the mix of sacred and secular music of the Cambrai region, near the area where Villard de Honnecourt operated. Of course, little of the history is apparent to the ear, and the music is what matters most to listeners, who may or may not appreciate the finer aspects of "cathedralism" and its impact on 13th century music. Instead, the melismatic vocals and austere instrumental music convey the appropriate atmosphere and expressiveness of northern French motets, creatively interpreted to the best of the group's abilities.

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.

Beethoven: Fidelio's Big Adventure

Based on a story from France during the Revolutionary Terror (the story of an intrepid young woman who disguised herself as a man to save her husband from the dungeon), Beethoven's unique opera has had a turbulent life, and has been reworked here and there over the years. New proof of the German composer's musical genius, Fidelio also permitted him to write a musical setting for a libretto that matched his political beliefs.
