Following her exceptional recording, Testament: The Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin, Rachel Barton Pine continues her exploration of Johann Sebastian Bach's chamber works in The Sonatas for Violin & Harpsichord, a 2018 release on Cedille. Joined by her friend and colleague, harpsichordist Jory Vinikour, Pine offers historically informed performances that have a richness and expressiveness similar to a modern interpretation. Pine's rich and luminous tone is a welcome change from the typically clinical sound sometimes heard in early music performances, and the spontaneity and ease with which Pine and Vinikour play these sonatas gives them a conversational feeling that is quite enjoyable. Pine plays a 1770 violin with a modern replica of an 18th century bow, so the instrument produces a variety of timbres, from a bright flautando quality to a nearly reed-like tone, as well as the vibrant but seldom gritty string sonorities. Vinikour's accompaniment gives Pine pride of place and seems a bit understated, though the harpsichord part is always clear and the trio sonata textures are reasonably well-balanced in the 24-bit digital recording. Also included with the sonatas is the variant movement, Cantabile, BWV 1019a, which is appended to the Sonata in G major, BWV 1019. Cedille's reproduction is transparent and close-up, so the listener gets a wonderful front-row experience. Highly recommended.

Mason Bates' weird and wonderful electronic symphonies

What do you mean, you haven’t heard about Mason Bates (yet)? He is one of the hottest names on the North-American music scene. Born in 1977, Bates is a symphonic and lyrical composer as well as an electro DJ (under the alias DJ Masonic) – two completely opposing genres which he takes great delight in mixing. Around half of his symphonic and lyrical work consists, in one way or another, of electronic sounds. The majority of these sounds are “every day sounds”, which are prerecorded and later put into a score. On the release date of his brilliant opera The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, Qobuz interviewed this extraordinary person.

François Couperin, the modern harpsichord

A favourite of Louis XIV, François Couperin (1668-1733) was the harpsichord superstar of the 18th century. At the time, the harpsichord was a prestigious instrument which was at the height of its fame (although it would return to obscurity in the following century), and Couperin revolutionised the way it was played, breaking a path that would later be trod by other virtuosos of the period like Dandrieu or Rameau. The Quebecois harpsichordist Olivier Fortin tells Qobuz the story of "Couperin the Great".

Koechlin, the Alchemist

Deeply rooted in both tradition and innovation, the immense work of Koechlin bewildered his contemporaries due to its many facets, its freedom and its philosophical dimension. The album finally allows us to grasp the full measure of this sound alchemist and brilliant prophet who, most probably, was born before his time… We’ll be thinking of him on November 27th, the date marking 150 years since his birth.
