It's official: Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy has been rehabilitated. During his lifetime, Mendelssohn was considered the supremely skilled and wonderfully expressive epitome of the early Romantic composer. After his early death, however, Mendelssohn was eclipsed by the late Romantic excesses of Wagner, and then banned by the twentieth century genocidal excesses of the Nazis. But in the final years of the twentieth century, Mendelssohn was at last returned to his rightful position in the Romantic pantheon of composers. How can such things be measured? Simple: by the surfeit of recordings of Mendelssohn's music, especially of his chamber music. Arguably his most consistently impressive body of work, Mendelssohn's chamber music exhibits two of his best qualities as a composer: his formal balance and his intense but controlled expressivity. In this 2006 release of Mendelssohn's piano trios, violinist Julia Fischer, cellist Daniel Müller-Schott, and pianist Jonathan Gilad give both works tremendously persuasive performances. Although each young player is a virtuoso with his/her own solo careers, the performances here are amazingly cohesive -- check out the Second Trio's elfin Scherzo -- and obviously affectionate -- check out the First Trio's lyric Andante con moto tranquillo. While many listeners will already have their favorite performances of the trios, listeners who begin exploring Mendelssohn's chamber music with this disc by Fischer, Müller-Schott, and Gilad's piano trios will not go wrong. PenaTone's super audio sound is so transparent it doesn't exist -- only the sound of the instruments exists.

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.

Koechlin, the Alchemist

Deeply rooted in both tradition and innovation, the immense work of Koechlin bewildered his contemporaries due to its many facets, its freedom and its philosophical dimension. The album finally allows us to grasp the full measure of this sound alchemist and brilliant prophet who, most probably, was born before his time… We’ll be thinking of him on November 27th, the date marking 150 years since his birth.
