Following a highly personal and splendidly reviewed Brahms recording, Fabian Müller follows up with "Passionato", an album centring not on a single composer, but on a “central masterwork of Western piano music”: Beethoven’s “Appassionata”. Radiating from this hub, Müller weaves a programme that shows why he is regarded as one of Germany’s most promising young pianists. It stands to reason that he is not the first pianist to apply his energies to this great work laid out on the grand scale, and Fabian Müller is well aware of this. “Each generation is entitled to rediscover these pieces for itself. Apart from that, it is simply not possible to play a piece the same way twice. So even if I know my favourite performances back to front, mine will still be the Appassionata of Fabian Müller”. This is the starting-point of his new album, geographically as well as musically. Having grown up between the Beethovenhaus and Schumannhaus in Bonn, he sees “much more of the Rhinelander than the Viennese” in Beethoven, flanking the Appassionata with Schumann’s G minor Sonata – a work of extremes. When Schumann requires the artist to play “as fast as possible” in the first movement, then “even faster” in the coda, Müller has his own personal answer: “It is more a feeling that is too strong to be expressed in a ‘normal’ manner. Drop everything and play for your life. That is the key. A feeling that something is flooding out of you”. Fabian Müller has already proved that he knows how to make Brahms’s piano music his own. His two Rhapsodies give the pianist the impression “that they could melt their way through anything; because, without alarm, they are always so burning, pervasive and penetrating”. As his third counterpart to Beethoven alongside Schumann and Brahms, he selects a composer whose oeuvre represents another strand in his musical identity. Wolfgang Rihm and his Piano Piece No. 5 “Tombeau” cast another shaft of light on the musical interpretation of how human feelings are experienced: “Beethoven combines emotion with a very strong structure, Rihm with huge ruthlessness, Schumann with songlike rapture, and Brahms something else again”? In "Passionato", Fabian Müller presents an album that takes the interpretation of Romantic piano music to a new level. It must be authentic, on the human scale, like Fabian himself. He was studying in Pierre-Laurent Aimard’s piano class in Cologne at the age of 15, went on to play Germany’s great concert halls, and has since won the ARD Music Competition and the “Ton und Erklärung” Competition. It is noticeable that Fabian Müller speaks about music as clearly as he plays it. “After all, understanding a work means appreciating its appeal and being able to imagine what makes it worth hearing. I think that everyone can benefit enormously from that. And that is why I shall never stop loving music. And most important of all: never stop sharing that with as many people as possible”. © Berlin Classics

Hi-Res Booklet
Jean-Baptiste Dupont is one of the most renowned organists of our time. His artistic prowess is reflected in his success at international competitions as well as his performing career across the globe. Trained in the French organ tradition, both in interpretation and improvisation, his new recording of Widor’s 8th Organ Symphony combines this tradition with the sound-world of a Cavaillé-Coll organ: the instrument at Saint-Sernin (Toulouse) seems to be custom-made for the most complex work by Widor who confessed that without the experience of listening to the Cavaillé-Coll instruments he would not have written any organ music. Jean-Baptiste Dupont is deeply rooted in the heritage of the French music tradition. His extensive expertise as an improviser leads to a particular state of consciousness within music: when interpreting repertoire works, he grasps and analyses the creative structures of the work on a deep level; in the moment of the performance, he experiences them like an improviser – the creative process of the composer becomes his own when he plays. © Audite

Hi-Res Booklet
Founded in 1983 by German siblings, the Mandelring Quartett has recorded extensively. It has produced complete works and anthologies that (perhaps for the time being) avoid Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven and concentrate on Schubert, Shostakovich, Mendelssohn, Onslow, Goldschmidt, Brahms and Janáček.In this new album, they wisely include Maurice Ravel's famous Quartet in F alongside the only piece of its kind composed by Fernand de La Tombelle, written seven years before the work by his younger brother. Long one of the vast crowd of those forgotten by the history of music, La Tombelle (1854-1928) was one of the founders of the Schola Cantorum in Paris alongside Vincent d'Indy. A movement of rediscovery, largely initiated by the Bru Zane Foundation in Venice, has been taking place in recent years around this prolific composer who was curious about everything from poetry to astronomy, photography, the plastic arts and gastronomy.His Quartet in E major, part of the French quartet revival with those of Vincent d'Indy, Chausson and Albéric Magnard, is a welcome discovery. La Tombelle's language, clearly inherited from the German composers of the 19th century, is that of a cultivated and humanist aristocrat, oscillating between classicism and modernity. The overwhelming sunlight emanating from the young Ravel's pure diamond can illuminate this rare work and at the same time overshadow it, depending on one's tastes, but the risk was worth taking. © François Hudry/Qobuz

After the critical success of her last two solo albums, Célimène Daudet comes back with her most personal project. "Haïti my love" is a passionate declaration to her Caribbean origins through the prism of her music and her little-known classical composers. Lamothe, Elie and Saintonge will know how to surprise you and take you on a musical journey that tells the rhythms, landscapes and colours of the country. Fascinated by Chopin, who influenced him a lot, Ludovic Lamothe was even nicknamed "the Chopin Noir" because of his dreamlike, deeply sensitive and lyrical music. So many unpublished gems just waiting to be shared and known! © nomadmusic
