After "Inventions", Apotheosis is the third and last volume in a complete set of the Beethoven quartets that breaks new ground: it aims to regroup the works according to their position within the three broad creative divisions of the composer’s life – the formative years, the ‘heroic’ period and the ‘late’ period. This programme assembles the ‘late’ quartets in a new sense, in other words those works in which the stylistic innovations of each of these creative periods reach their full flowering. © harmonia mundi

Gounod: the Romantic, the Mystic

A major artisan of the renaissance in French music in the second half of the 19th century, alongside his elder colleague Berlioz, whom he admired, and his followers Bizet, Saint-Saëns, and Massenet, who were inspired by his faith in Art, Charles Gounod (1818-1893), a mystic and a charmer, a romantic in search of a new classicism, owed his fame to a few masterpieces, which have overshadowed his daring. A flourishing discography allows us to discover the diversity of his music: instrumental, vocal, religious, and lyrical.

The Sirens Cycle, the listening-sight of Peter Eötvös

Homer, Joyce and Kafka. These are the authors of the texts that are put into music by Peter Eötvös in the The Sirens Cycle (2016). The Sirens Cycle is a string quartet with coloratura soprano, in line with the concept—the addition of the voice—of Schönberg’s Second Quartet, Alban Berg’s Lyric Suite (in his sung variant or, at least, that can be sung) and Egon Wellesz’s Sonnets by Elizabeth Barrett Browning. The album concludes with Eötvös’ first quartet, Korrespondenz, a work dating from 1992, a kind of “mini-opera” without singing, that uses the correspondence between Mozart and his father during the year 1778 as a support. Omer Corlaix reopens the debate on this work for us, after talking about it with the composer himself, specially for Qobuz! The Sirens Cycle is our October Qobuzism on the BMC label. Let yourself be transported by the music of one of the most endearing composers of our time.
