Mezzo-soprano Marianne Crebassa has taken on sultrier tones, both vocally and visually, since her debut album of "pants"-role arias, Oh, Boy!, in 2016. Here, inspired by her own part-Spanish ancestry, she essays a set of Spanish and Spanish-influenced French orchestral and voice-and-piano songs. Not all of the selections are strictly the séguedilles promised in the title, but they all reflect the rhythms of the seguidilla folk dance or similar ones. Bizet is here, of course, but Crebassa wisely avoids full-on operatic interpretations of Carmen; her intention is to go more deeply into the emotional content of the Spanish style, often quietly melancholy and an over-the-top Carmen would have distracted from that. Some of the other selections are common enough recital pieces, but there are some impressive rarities as well. The song cycle Seis canciones castellanas by the Basque composer Jesús Guridi and the five-part Combat del somni of Mompou are rarely encountered. The Mompou cycle is something of a centerpiece, and Crebassa's reading may well be a standard. She is in absolutely gorgeous voice here, and the material seems to have fired her to reach new heights. Crebassa gets able support from Ben Glassberg, leading the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, from pianist Alphonse Cemin, from vocal duet partners, and especially from guitarist Thibaut Garcia, but there is one star of the show here, and it is Crebassa herself.

Steve Reich in 10 Works

Steve Reich belongs to that very small circle of composers who can claim to have changed the face of contemporary music over the last fifty years. Qobuz presents a selection of ten of the most important works from his catalogue.

Picasso, when painting meets music

Picasso's modernist genius swiftly stretched beyond the pictorial and spread into music and dance, two art forms with which the Spanish painter always maintained a close relationship, to the point of influencing composer friends he met along the way.

Wilhelm Kempff: The Most Human of Pianists

An artist of another time, Wilhelm Kempff (1895-1991) believed in inspiration: he took on music as if it were a religion, with a respectful enthusiasm for the masters that came before him. With his velvet touch, sense of phrasing and storytelling quality, Wilhelm Kepff’s art was like that of a waking dream. Half poet, half divine, during a time when expression of emotion triumphed all. He recorded many times the works of his favourite composers, in particular his ‘god’ Beethoven, for whom Kempff is well known and left behind three complete sonatas in keeping with his own maturation and the evolution of his recording technique.
