Few recent versions of Johann Sebastian Bach's difficult concertos for harpsichord(s) bear witness to such a bubbling polyphonic life. The reduced size of il pomo d'oro, to one per part, probably had something to do with it, but the sense of listening of each musician, the harmonic tension like the breathing in the phrasing infused by Francesco Corti, the simple beauty of the sound texture, rich in a thousand cleverly organised details, will remain the great heralds of this second volume.


Listen, for example, to the Largo of the BWV 1056, with its "pizzicatos"  strings, which here sound as much like heartbeats as stab wounds. And on this carpet of sound, the Italian harpsichordist rolls out a line with infinite horizons, with soberly tender curves. The Larghetto of the BWV 1054, rarely so poetic and expressive, bears definitive witness - often forgotten - to the fact that Johann Sebastian Bach was a lover of acoustics, and its corollary resonance. The members of il pomo d'oro (especially in the medium and low registers, namely Stefano Rossi, Ludovico Minasi and Paolo Zuccheri) also highlight with acuity the rubbing that Bach used to spread his discourse. Striking, indeed. And the two concertos for three soloists (BWV 1057 and BWV 1044) exude similar beauties.


In the libretto, the Italian harpsichordist testifies that the musicians, during the recording session that preceded, only by a few hours, the strict lockdown of Italy in early March 2020, were no doubt already going through a period of doubt as to their professional and personal futures. Nevertheless, they were fully committed to the company, all of them then focused on celebrating the radiant power of the Leipzig Cantor's music. This will not escape anyone's attention.


A record that will quickly become one of your favourites! Let's hope that Corti continues with the multi-harpsichord concertos. © Pierre-Yves Lascar/Qobuz

Picasso, when painting meets music

Picasso's modernist genius swiftly stretched beyond the pictorial and spread into music and dance, two art forms with which the Spanish painter always maintained a close relationship, to the point of influencing composer friends he met along the way.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.

Women Composers: A Secret History

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho, music history has been marked by female figures who “dared” to write music. Is creation a male privilege? Our sound museum does hold more well-known and recognised male than female composers. Yet their works are no less exciting and there is absolutely no reason for them to play second fiddle, or be ignored altogether. Below, you’ll find a defence and illustration of female composition works through eleven musical portraits.
