How to put something into words that is difficult or impossible to grasp? Something like feelings or thoughts? One possibility would be to turn those emotions into music, as in Victor Hugo's famous quote, “Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent”.Lucas Debargue goes for one simple word - Żal. It describes a particularly complex feeling of sadness, regret, or loss, through which, however, greater enlightenment can be achieved at the same time. With this arguably unusual title, it quickly becomes clear that Żal is not simply a new interpretation of familiar material. Debargue, accompanied by violinist Gidon Kremer and his ensemble Kremerata Baltica, devotes himself in this project wholeheartedly for the first of his time to the works of Polish composer Miłosz Magin.


Almost all aspiring pianists are taught pieces by Bach, Beethoven or Chopin at an early age, and Lucas Debargue is no exception. Eventually, however, thanks to his first piano teacher, Christine Muenier, the latter had the opportunity to explore Miłosz Magin's music from the same beginning. When Debargue played Magin's Nostalgie du pays as an encore at a concert in Paris in 2017, he was contacted by none other than Magin's granddaughter herself. With the support of his close colleague Kremer, he decided to record a total of six of the composer's works, his sixth album to date on Sony Classical.


Beginning with the Andante for violin and piano, the spark of this enchanted music is immediate. The piano and the violin are introduced as equal instruments, dreamy, melancholy harmonies are developing, coupled with dance-like aspects, with the influence of Debussy and Ravel quickly apparent. In the following Piano Concerto No. 3, the impressionistic, partly atonal phrases become even more clear. Debargue proves himself once again here as an outstanding concert pianist - sensitive and sentimental and at the same time powerful and energetic in the middle movements - always serving the composer. This is also the case with Kremer, as he demonstrates in the later Concerto Rustico No. 1. Here the Polish roots of the composer become particularly clear, as Magin incorporates the two traditional dances Kujawiak (slow) and Oberek (rhythmically moving). Via the Four Vocalises and Nostalgie du pays, the performers close the album with the climax Stabat Mater, a highly spiritual work to which the artists pay all tribute and which musically and respectfully takes up its title Żal one last time. © Lena Germann/Qobuz

Album Description

How to put something into words that is difficult or impossible to grasp? Something like feelings or thoughts? One possibility would be to turn those emotions into music, as in Victor Hugo's famous quote, “Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent”.Lucas Debargue goes for one simple word - Żal.

The Earth’s Song: The World of Gustav Mahler

What could have prompted Gustav Mahler to compose a work as unclassifiable as this one? Written between 1907 and 1908, a pivotal period in Mahler's life, The Song of the Earth occupies a special place within his oeuvre. It combines the “fin de siècle” spirit with the fascination for the exotic that was spreading amongst his peers at the time. Vienna was in turmoil when this music was composed, and the piece oscillates between the notions of farewell and new beginnings. With a lot of layers to peel back, The Song of the Earth definitely merits a closer look.

Nelson Freire, a Humble Virtuoso

A child prodigy in his native country, the Brazilian pianist who passed away in November 2021 kept his distance from the noisy fanfare of fame. His enormous hands and his natural and virtuoso technique always assisted his full, powerful and mellow sound. Here Qobuz looks back at the career of a musician that for a long time was the “best-kept secret in the world of the piano”.

Nils Frahm, an Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.
