When it comes to his illustration of music at the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries, Martini had more to show than Plaisir d’amour alone. The Bavarian, would rise to glory at the French court and enjoy a privileged position among the sovereigns. Appointed Superintendent of the King’s Music in 1788, he fled France under the Terror before making a triumphant return to Paris with his opera Sapho, joined the Conservatoire in 1796, distanced himself from the stage and, finally, was reinstated as Superintendent in 1815. That same year, in Saint-Denis, he had the honour of hosting his Requiem Mass with a full orchestra, on 21 January 1815, when the remains of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette were transferred to the Royal Basilica. This Requiem in memory of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinettewas performed once again one year after, to mark the anniversary of the martyr King. However, this spectacular piece, written for three soloists, a full orchestra and choir, seems to date from 1811 and bears the musical accents of the Empire – fitting for a celebration of the monarchy! Hervé Niquet gives to this highly symbolic work of the history of France and Versailles, a resurrection that brings Martini back into the spotlight of the last monarchic splendour. © Château de Versailles Spectacles

For over 60 years the Argentinian pianist Martha Argerich has amazed audiences all over the world with her wild, impulsive playing and her constant risk-taking, overcoming every technical difficulty by turning each of her performances into a fascinating journey.

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.
