2020 and 2021 were not very conducive to live recordings. So, with Elīna Garanča, you’ll be all the more delighted to be able to discover these superb recordings taken from the last two editions of the Salzburg festival. With the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and under the baton of Christian Thielemann, the soprano presents the magnificent orchestral lieder from Wagner’s Wesendonck cycle as well as Mahler’s Rückert-Lieder.

In concert, the two works are often performed together because they follow two similar themes: intimacy and introspection. When Wagner composed his Wesendonck-Lieder for piano and female voice in 1857-1858, his world revolved around one person: Mathilde Wesendonck. This nostalgic love, which never really manifested itself, was recorded by Wagner in five lieder based on Mathilde’s own poems. Although Mahler’s Rückert-Lieder aren’t centred around a particular person or event – rather, they are five independent works based on Friedrich Rückert texts – the compositions are nevertheless deeply emotional and place personal experience at the forefront.

Elīna Garanča gets to the heart of this intimacy and introspection, helped by the orchestra, which rolls out a carpet of sound which is full of emotion. It’s not only the pieces themselves, but also the concert’s circumstances that give this live recording a special appeal. Garanča is at one with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra with vibrancy, finesse and impressive skill, without being drowned out by the instrumental mass. A real record/event. © Lena Germann/Qobuz

Marc Ribot, the anti-guitar hero

For over thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.
