Florilegium, the English early music ensemble founded by flutist Ashley Solomon in 1991, has been picking up the pace since the turn of the century occasioned some changes in personnel. Although the fortunes of the early music movement have been kind of up and down in the meantime, Florilegium has remained a constant, releasing at least one disc per year on the Channel Classics label and touring round the world. The 2005 release Bolivian Baroque was a gamble that has paid off handsomely in good reviews and renewed interest in the group. Subsequently, Florilegium has resumed, and with this volume presumably completes, its series of Georg Philipp Telemann's Paris Quartets, begun in 1999 when Florilegium was an almost completely different group. Those who love Telemann will be pleased that Florilegium waited, as these performances are about as ideal as possible for the Paris Quartets. Leader Kati Debretzeni's violin seamlessly intertwines with Solomon's Baroque flute in ensemble passages, and the pacing provided by the continuo is just right. While the group never strays far, if at all, from expected Baroque performance practice, there is nothing cold or mathematical about Florilegium's rendering of the Telemann -- it is conceived with the maximum emotional response in mind. Just listen to the "Modéré" movement within the Quatour No. 6 in E minor and you'll be hooked -- it is a moving interpretation, sort of like experiencing a cool, light rainstorm from the front porch at night. Florilegium's responsiveness to the pastoral and naturalistic tendencies in Telemann's music helps it speak with an eloquence that it clearly has, yet remains invisible on the printed page. That is what made the Paris Quartets so enormously popular in their day; playable by amateurs, and most of the people able to shell out for such a publication were aristocratic amateurs at that, but still containing a spark of inspiration that raised the nature of the music above the combined abilities of the players. Florilegium has captured that very quality, and the DSD Super Audio CD has radiant sound that will place the group right in the living room. If you are someone who loves Baroque music but "hates" Telemann, this disc is good enough to turn you around. Nonetheless, Florilegium's Telemann: Paris Quartets, Vol. 3, should be sought out by anyone who has an interest in high-quality chamber music playing at its finest -- one wonders if it is humanly possible for it to be better than this.

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.

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.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.
