Many of the earlier recordings of the French choir Accentus and its director, Laurence Equilbey, focused on late Romantic or 20th century repertory, including, one time, texted symphonic music by Mahler. Equilbey has turned her attention to the Classical period, however, first to Haydn, and then, with Accentus' fine 2014 recording of the Requiem in D minor, K. 626, to Mozart. That album was on Naxos, but now Accentus and Equilbey's period-instrument Insula Orchestra move to Parlophone/Warner Classics, with a bit of a bump up in sound quality: the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Saint-Omer is kind to Accentus' uniquely lush sound. You wouldn't necessarily think that sound would fit Mozart, but Equilbey proves herself a skilled Mozartian, forging clean contrasts between the rich choir and the vibrato-free Insula strings. The result here is a superb reading of the Mozart warhorse Mass in C major, K. 317 ("Coronation"), with its closely associated Vesperae solennes de confessore, K. 339. The mass features musical material so simple that you can't see how it could possibly be as beautiful as it is, but that's the nature of Mozart's mastery of musical time. What pushes this recording into the top rank of available "Coronation" recordings is the presence of fine soloists, most of all the divine Sandrine Piau on the soprano line. Sample the end of the "Gloria," where she adds an angelic, dancing "Amen" of the kind few other recordings have boasted. Throughout, Equilbey manages the relationships among orchestra, choir, and soloists well, and although the choir is coolly consistent, she gets the exuberance of the repeated "Credo in unum Deum" at the end of the "Credo," an unusual and telling feature of the mass. Strongly recommended Mozart.

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.
