Born in Madrid in 1991 into a family of musicians, Pablo Ferrández is one of the most outstanding cellists of the new generation. This, his first album for Sony Classical (released six years after an album of Dvořák and Schumann Concertos for Onyx Classics) is a testament to his daring musicality, combined with a profound sound. There is also a great deal of delicacy in the phrasing and expression, as witnessed first and foremost in Elegy, Op. 3 No. 1. by Rachmaninov, whose great Sonata in G minor, Op. 19 forms the heart of the programme. Alongside his acolyte and friend, the pianist Denis Kozhukhin (a Pentatone artist whose Brahms recital in 2017 was memorable), he displays a great sense of structure and an ideal measure of restraint, without the slightest Romantic (romanticising) excess, notably in the Finale, which is totally pristine. Sumptuous - it is just a pity that the sound recording dries up the timbres of the two instruments a little. "Pablo Ferrández is truly a singular artist ... marvellous intonation, very refined vibrato, absolutely impeccable left and right hands, and a true musician", said Anne-Sophie Mutter a few years ago of her young colleague. She was not wrong.

This recital, entitled 'Reflections' also features some Spanish pieces, namely two excerpts from Manuel de Falla's 7 Canciones populares Españolas, namely Nana and Asturiana, and Oriental from Enrique Granados' Danzas españolas, before concluding with the famous El cant dels ocells, a traditional Catalan piece arranged in 1939 by Pablo Casals. In these miniatures, which he alternates with transcriptions of other pages by Rachmaninov (Vocalise), Pablo Ferrández continues to fascinate with the beauty of his sonority, a veritable black sun, and penetrating phrasing  ̶ Asturiana, magic! © 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.

Nils Frahm, An Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.

The Little Tramp: The Great Composer

As the Paris Philharmonic puts on a major exhibition dedicated entirely to his career, it’s the perfect opportunity to take a look back at Charlie Chaplin’s close ties with music. He may be famous as a legendary performer and director, but the man with the iconic bowler hat and cane also composed the music in his films himself.
