For this 2014 Outhere release of Franz Schubert's Octet in F major, D. 803, the Edding String Quartet is joined by members of the Northernlight chamber ensemble, and the collaboration yields a particularly jubilant performance. The eight musicians interact with a conversant intimacy that shows great sympathy for the music and a natural ease with each other, yet the group produces a big, buoyant sound that suits Schubert's nearly symphonic conception. Not only is the Octet extraordinary for its six-movement structure and expansive time frame of close to an hour, it is also a marvel for its quasi-orchestral writing, a quality it shares with Beethoven's Septet in E flat major, the work that inspired it. The Edding String Quartet fills out the rest of the program with the Quartettsatz in C minor, D. 703, one of the great fragments in Schubert's oeuvre. Yet its moods of urgency and brooding pensiveness stand in sharp contrast with the sunny Octet, and its place at the end of the CD has a deflating effect on the recording's largely cheerful mood. The recording is crisp and clean, and the ensemble makes the most of the resonant studio acoustics.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.

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.

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.
