"Wonderful Mystery", the story of Christ: to some, a real historical figure, to others, the son of God, and to others, an invention by the first Christians – for centuries Europeans have been cordially killing each other over these distinctions. Music, well-known for softening people's attitudes, has been played to celebrate the birth of Christ for centuries; and since the invention of musical notation there have existed many works celebrating the Nativity. The Huelgas Ensemble – wonderful for sure, but there's no mystery about their seriously hard musical and musicological work – are offering us here a range of Christmas pieces, starting with the late Middle Ages, around 1350, up to the start of the Renaissance: either anonymous or signed by Jean Mouton. There follows a broad selection of pieces from the Renaissance itself, be it Flemish, French or Spanish: Sweelinck, Lésbio, Manchicourt, de Weert. Almost as an aside, the Huelgas Ensemble offer us a few neo-Medieval forays, with British organist and church musician Bertram Luard-Selby and, more uniquely, Peter Cornelius, the author of the comic opera Der Barbier von Bagdad, incredible quantities of Lieder, but also a collection of Christmas songs, from which is drawn Three Kings, also written in a neo-historical style. © SM/Qobuz

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.

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.

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.
