The works for cello and piano of Gabriel Fauré stemmed primarily from the antipodes of his career. Early on, he primarily composed miniatures, though the well-known Op. 24 Elegie was intended to be a movement of a sonata that never came to pass. The works from near the end of his life -- especially the two complete sonatas -- both feature surprisingly spirited, bright, eager moments despite the composer's failing health and hearing. Pianist Eric le Sage is joined by cellist François Salque on this impressive Alpha album. The sound quality achieved by le Sage, Salque, and the recording engineers at Alpha is what truly sets this album apart from others like it. The overall recorded sound quality is dry, crisp, close, and possessing a minimum of reverb. Even a bit more of any of these qualities and the disc would be sterile and uninteresting. But in their present combination, the outcome is one of exceptional clarity and focus, one in which listeners are transported to the very heart of the music. Salque and le Sage play with equal measures of austerity and simplicity, letting Fauré's sometimes overlooked sonatas speak to the openness and freedom achieved by the composer late in his career. The disc ends with a likewise enjoyable and gripping performance of the Op. 120 Trio with the addition of clarinetist Paul Meyer. As Vol. 1 of what is hopefully a survey of Fauré's complete chamber music, this installment is definitely worth checking out.

In your panoramas...
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".

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.

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.
