Some of Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky's most beloved music can be found in his three great ballets, which have become familiar to audiences in complete performances, as well as variously configured suites and arrangements. This hybrid SACD by pianists Mari Kodama and Momo Kodama offers transcriptions for piano duo by Sergey Rachmaninov, Anton Arensky, Eduard Leontyevich Langer, and Claude Debussy, which capture the brilliance and beauty of the original versions. One is struck by the faithfulness of the arrangers, who eschewed pyrotechnics in favor of accurately re-creating Tchaikovsky's music, and the keyboard versions often bring the orchestral sonorities and textures to mind. The selections also recommend themselves because of their tunefulness and accessibility, and it's likely that listeners will instantly recognize most of the pieces. For sampling, try the famous Adagio from Sleeping Beauty, the sparkling Overture from Nutcracker, or the Dance of the Cygnets from Swan Lake. The playing by the Kodama sisters is meticulous and finely polished, but their liveliness and virtuosity bring the music across with considerable excitement and a feeling of pure enjoyment.

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.

Women Composers: A Secret History

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho, music history has been marked by female figures who “dared” to write music. Is creation a male privilege? Our sound museum does hold more well-known and recognised male than female composers. Yet their works are no less exciting and there is absolutely no reason for them to play second fiddle, or be ignored altogether. Below, you’ll find a defence and illustration of female composition works through eleven musical portraits.
