This Rondine is surely Puccini's least-well known opera, the victim of a misunderstanding early on: commissioned in 1912 by a Viennese theatre, people jumped to the conclusion that Puccini was writing an operetta, and discarding his normal canon. But upon closer inspection, although it is full of ternary rhythms, it is no operetta. Its language is absolutely the one we know from Puccini's other works, that lightness of style seen under the Second Empire in Paris and on the Côte d’Azur. It was in 1917, with the First World War dragging on, that the work finally débuted, in neutral Monte Carlo. Although it was hailed as a success, Puccini's work quickly fell into obscurity and was buried under a hail of successive operas: Il Trittico (Il Tabarro, Suor Angelica, Gianni Schicchi) and Turandot, the latter left unfinished by the composer.
Recorded by Radio Munich in 2015 at a concert given at the Prinzregententheater, this new recording with excellent sound quality, is dominated by the troubled, wounded Magda, played by Romanian soprano Elena Mosuc, whose name is now inseparable from the Zurich Opera which has long been her musical home. Named Romania's "Woman of the Year", she has performed at many festivals, and on all the world's great stages. Her distribution is not at all Italian, but beautifully balanced for all that: it is a welcome alternative to the Gheorghiu-Alagna-Pappano version (from Warner), which was long believed to be definitive: the second act here is particularly accomplished. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Bernard Haitink, a Prophet in his Own Land

The great Dutch conductor who died recently at the venerable age of 92 proved the old adage wrong. Recognised by his peers throughout his own country from his youth, Bernard Haitink spent most of his vast career in the Netherlands, first conducting the Dutch Radio Orchestra and then the prestigious Concertgebouw in Amsterdam for 27 years, with whom he made many legendary recordings for PHILIPS, DECCA and EMI CLASSICS, including more than 450 recordings of a wide range of composers, among which Bruckner and Mahler enjoy pride of place.

Strauss & Kempe: Elective Affinities

The name of conductor Rudolf Kempe (1910-1976) is indissociable from those of composer Richard Strauss and the Dresden Staatskapelle orchestra. As Warner is now re-releasing the recordings made between 1970 and 1975, Qobuz is putting the spotlight on the Straussian legacy of a precise, often incisive conductor, who always paid the greatest attention to the text and its charms.

Maria Callas "dal vivo"

Breathtaking in its range, Maria Callas’s recorded legacy becomes all the more astonishing when we consider that her studio opera recordings were all made within the space of just over a decade: she recorded no fewer than 24 complete works between 1952 and 1960 (and most of them between 1953 and 1957). Soon after moving to Paris, she added Carmen and a second Tosca to the list, in 1964 and 1965 respectively. Her complete studio recordings, including a series of celebrated recital discs, all painstakingly remastered from the original tapes, were released in a luxury box set by Warner Classics in 2014. This is our reproduction, with the kind permission of Warner Music, of Michel Roubinet’s introductory text in the album booklet ‘Maria Callas Live’.
