Pasta and Vino Rosso! The great Stefan Pop takes you on a delicious journey through the Italian opera world of Verdi.
When Giuseppe Verdi (1813 - 1901) started working on the opera Nabucco in the early 1840s, it was hard to foresee a promising career that would make him the most successful opera composer of all time. On the contrary: Verdi was already around 30 years old when he celebrated his breakthrough at Milan's La Scala with Nabucco, his private life had been hit hard by misfortune and he was on the verge of letting his composing pen disappear into his desk drawer forever due to a lack of success. Fortunately, he did not do so and became Italy's best-known and most popular opera composer.

Genre: Classical

Unquestionably Manuel María Ponce stands as one of the composers for the classical guitar of all time. Rare would be the virtuoso who does not acknowledge his brilliance. However, to reach such heights, history had to gift us a providential encounter with the greatest ambassador of the guitar in the 20th century: Andrés Segovia. Their profound relationship of friendship, respect, and admiration, evidenced through a fraternal correspondence and declarations, began in 1923. At that time, Ponce was a professor of Harmony at the National Conservatory of Mexico and a music critic. Manuel Ponce composed the Sonatas between 1923 and 1929, all commissioned and dedicated to Andrés Segovia. They constitute the first collection of Sonatas written in the 20th century by a non-guitarist composer, forming a fundamental and unique corpus in the concert guitar repertoire. Each Sonata possesses stylistic and formal characteristics that Segovia himself detailed.

After Welcome to the Black Forest (The Sounds of MPS), a magnificent compilation in 24-bit Hi-Res quality released exclusively for Qobuz in February 2022, highlighting the variety of MPS Records' eclectic catalogue, now comes Reunion in the Black Forest - The Sounds of MPS Vol. II! With this second volume, also available exclusively on Qobuz, the German label founded in 1968 by Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer proves yet again the breadth of its repertoire. Jazz-rock, swing, hard bop, Latin jazz, vocal jazz - nothing is missing from this compilation. It features Oscar Peterson on a brilliant live version of “On a Clear Day (You Can See Forever)” and other equally legendary pianists such as Red Garland, Chick Corea and Monty Alexander (the stunning “Monticello” kick starts the compilation with a 5-star rhythm section featuring Eugene Wright on bass and Bobby Durham on drums).Another gem from Reunion in the Black Forest is the languorous “Candlelight” by Joe Henderson's quartet with Chick Corea, Ron Carter and Billy Higgins, as well as a swinging cover of The Beatles' “Hey Jude” by Ella Fitzgerald. For those with a taste for real groove, “Au Right” by a youthful George Duke (a 1971 recording when Californian keyboardist was only 25!) promises to excite even the most conservative listener. The 20 tracks on this compilation are a musical delight.

Genre: Classical

The Soviet-born Israeli cellist Mischa Maisky has a distinctive, arch-Romantic style that carries forward a Russian tradition of intense expressivity. The only cellist to have studied with the Russian giants Mstislav Rostropovich and Gregor Piatigorsky, he has himself become an influential teacher. Maisky was born January 10, 1948, in Riga, Latvia, then part of the Soviet Union. The Latvian form of his name was Miša Maiskis. His older brother Valery was an organist and harpsichordist. Maisky took up the cello at eight and entered the Riga Conservatory, but he chafed under the school's rigid curriculum. In 1965, he moved to the larger city of Leningrad (now St. Petersburg), and he quickly flourished.
