The work of late-Romantic Norwegian composer Gerhard Schjelderup had not appeared in classical catalogs until CPO released this disc of his 1910 symphonic poem Brand, loosely based on a drama by Ibsen, and his 1924 Second Symphony, "To Norway," each movement of which depicts a different Norwegian scene. In these performances by Eivind Aadland and the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra, Schjelderup demonstrates a more virile aesthetic than his Norwegian contemporary Johan Halvorsen. Brand is a big, burly work cast in a single half-hour movement featuring storm music, love music, battle music, and more storm music. "To Norway" is a program symphony in four movements illustrating The Sea, Spring, The Mountain Plateau, and The Highest Peaks in music that sounds strikingly similar to the storm music, battle music, and love music of Brand. Whatever it is meant to depict, Schjelderup's music sounds deeply derivative, with some passages strongly influenced by Strauss and others indebted to Wagner. For all Schjelderup's conspicuous energy, Halvorsen's more conservative but better defined artistic personality makes him the more appealing composer. Aadland and his Norwegian musicians are demonstrably doing all that can be done for Schjelderup, and anyone who absolutely has to hear every orchestral work produced in Scandinavia between 1850 and 1950 may not be overwhelmingly disappointed.

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.

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.

Orfeo Orchestra: 18th Century French Baroque, Resurrected

Orfeo Orchestra (conducted by György Vashegyi), a prolific performer of French baroque music since its birth, has been honoured in recent years by both Palazetto Bru Zane and the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles (CMBV) with invitations to record a series of explorations of French lyrical music – both baroque and classical.
