No one would guess it from its flowery cover photo. But Hilary Hahn's opus 'Paris' takes us into the heart of three of the most extraordinarily moving moments written for the violin between the end of the 19th century and the early years of this century. Einojuhani Rautavaara's Two Serenades, were written in 2015 and 2016 for the American violinist. They are splendid, and exalt her origins, enhanced by memories of impressionist music and the mark of the inescapable Shostakovich – the latter from the first violin theme. The work is often reminiscent of Barber and Vaughan Williams, as if the Finnish composer had immersed himself in his patron's recordings of Barber's Concerto (Sony Classical) and the Briton's Lark Ascending (Deutsche Grammophon). In the first of the two pieces, Serenade to my Love, Rautavaara best captures the particularities of Hilary Hahn's sonority, more dark than radiant, warm in the mediums, never quite bright. A great connoisseur of his compatriot's music, Mikko Franck conducts these two pages with élan. In his hands the orchestral writing resembles shimmering garlands: there is often a hint of melancholy, a fully Finnish feeling, especially in its more dour aspects.

Interiority rather than brilliance is also the hallmark of this performance of Prokofiev's First Concerto (1916-1917). From an equally luminous perspective, Lisa Batiashvili's violin, for example, (with Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Deutsche Grammophon 2018) seemed more radiant, and varied in accentuation, at the risk of sounding slightly lurid at times. In 2009, for his first album, released by EMI Classics, Vilde Frang had proposed an exciting recording. It is magical, with a ghostly spirit and lunar poetry. Here, with the perhaps more unique tones of the Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra, Hilary Hahn offers a rather restrained expression. It is never distant, but rather melancholic! ... It is a pity, however, that this recording is only coming out just now. She has performed this work everywhere, and in a more luminous and superlative style (Lorin Maazel, with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra). Finally, Chausson's Poem remains more convincing. It is performance as prayer. © Pierre-Yves Lascar/Qobuz

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.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.

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.
