The music on this album comes not from the early Italian symphonist Giovanni Battista Sammartini but from his older brother Giuseppe, who spent much of his career in London. The five-year age difference shows up in the older brother's music, some of which looks back to Vivaldi. The three concerti grossi on the album are interesting examples of a style that has reached its dead end: Sammartini tries to wedge the small-versus-large-group contrasts of the concerto grosso into incipient Classical phrase structures, with varied harmonic rhythm, non-terraced dynamic changes, and drives to the cadence. The way he does it involves ornate, virtuosic solos. The challenges to the soloists continue in the two oboe concertos on the album, fine additions to the oboe concerto repertory and fully able to stand comparison with Vivaldi's numerous wind concertos, along with which they might profitably be programmed. The three multi-movement pieces labeled overtures are really early Italian symphonies in everything but name, and especially the last one, with two horns, comes very close to the language of the younger Sammartini brother, whose work pointed directly toward the music of Haydn and Mozart. The Belgian historical-instrument group Les Muffati handles the technical difficulties of the music confidently. Conductor Peter van Heyghen takes what some may consider a fast-and-loose attitude toward the dynamic changes in the music, but overall he captures its variety and its situation in an era of dramatic stylistic change. The only real complaint is with the chilly, hollow sound environment of the Belgian church environment where the music was recorded.

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.

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.
