Capricious, gleefully extravagant and no respecter of rules, Francesco Geminiani was a virtuoso violinist and a talented composer. He was also an art dealer, a collector, a painter, writer and musicologist in the early days of the discipline. In his day, this hurried and agitated man (two characteristics that can be found in the vivacity of his music) had a reputation and influence every bit as powerful as that of Corelli or Handel, which time has unfairly erased.


The magnificent Concerto Köln ensemble wanted to address this lack by lending all its lustre to Geminiani's music, choosing its quintessence ("Quinta essentia") for this splendid album. A great traveller, Geminiani journeyed all over Europe, spending a fairly long time in Paris before establishing himself for good in London, where he played violin concertos with Handel at court. The story is told of the theft of one of his manuscripts by a servant during a stay in Dublin, which provoked his death at the age of 74 a (more than) respectable age for the time.


He left behind many sonatas and concertos grossos in the style of Corelli, which were very much in fashion in the England of the time. His own style would, however, make its mark, and many composers would keep his memory through the use of multiple arrangements, such as his student Charles Avison. The thirty-three pages of this recording give a perfect illustration of the versatility of this essential baroque composer. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Album Description

Capricious, gleefully extravagant and no respecter of rules, Francesco Geminiani was a virtuoso violinist and a talented composer. He was also an art dealer, a collector, a painter, writer and musicologist in the early days of the discipline. In his day, this hurried and agitated man (two characteristics that can be found in the vivacity of his music) had a reputation and influence every bit as powerful as that of Corelli or Handel, which time has unfairly erased.


The magnificent Concerto Köln ensemble wanted to address this lack by lending all its lustre to Geminiani's music, choosing its quintessence ("Quinta essentia") for this splendid album. A great traveller, Geminiani journeyed all over Europe, spending a fairly long time in Paris before establishing himself for good in London, where he played violin concertos with Handel at court. The story is told of the theft of one of his manuscripts by a servant during a stay in Dublin, which provoked his death at the age of 74 a (more than) respectable age for the time.


He left behind many sonatas and concertos grossos in the style of Corelli, which were very much in fashion in the England of the time. His own style would, however, make its mark, and many composers would keep his memory through the use of multiple arrangements, such as his student Charles Avison. The thirty-three pages of this recording give a perfect illustration of the versatility of this essential baroque composer. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Jonas Kaufmann in 10 Key Albums

With his flattering physique reminiscent of a handsome romantic, German Jonas Kaufmann has successfully modernised the image of opera tenors, long considered as unrepentant tumblers… Beyond his powerful and versatile voice, Jonas Kaufmann possesses an immense repertoire in several languages, masters all styles of opera, from Wagner to Verdi or Puccini, and sings the lied or the French opera to perfection. A great admirer of Fritz Wunderlich, he started his career “the old fashioned way”, in a company touring around small German theatres before taking off on his own towards a prodigious career. After a chaotic year in 2017 due to a ruptured blood vessel on his vocal chords, Jonas Kaufmann seems to have fully recovered and is working on countless new projects. Qobuz looks back on his career, highlighting 10 albums.

Tim Burton in 10 Albums

Through feature-length and animated films, Tim Burton has created a fascinating world of cinema over the last thirty years where poetic wonders meet gothic aesthetic and macabre humor. With few exceptions, he worked on most of his films with a specific composer, Danny Elfman. Without Burton’s images, Elfman’s music would not feel the same, and vice-versa. In 2019, the two artists proved this one more time with their last collaboration: the deeply moving "Dumbo".

10 Versions of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique

As a proper manifesto of French romanticism, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique marked the 19th century as much as Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring impacted the 20th. Composed in Paris − which at the time was a global crucible for artistic creation − these two masterpieces catapulted musical language into another dimension. On December 5th, 1830 the revolutionary work of 27-year-old Hector Berlioz deeply moved the musicians present in the small room of the old academy of music, among whom were Meyerbeer and Liszt, who were impressed by the extraordinary audacity of this piece presented just three years after Beethoven’s death.
