There's a certain sameness to most of the hundreds of recordings of Mozart's violin concertos on the market: bright, graceful melodies with a French flavor, fetchingly sensuous, slow movements without a lot of depth, and sound that gives a metallic sheen to the strings and soloist. You get the last of these in this release by Norwegian violinist Henning Kraggerud, leading the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra from his instrument, but on the other two counts Kraggerud goes his own way to a fairly extreme degree. The booklet contains a little apologia for this that makes interesting reading, especially in the section pertaining to a competition jury on which the violinist once served. The performances themselves feature quick outer movements, nowhere more so than in the opening "Allegro" of the Violin Concerto No. 3 in G major, K. 216 (sample this track for the effect of the whole). The slow movements are also taken at a resolute pace. There's no way Kraggerud's slow movement in the Violin Concerto No. 5 in A major, K 219, could be considered as corresponding to the marked "Adagio," but he's got that covered too, pointing out that slavish devotion to Mozartian texts, even Urtexts (researched original versions), should be avoided. The overall result is a set of violin concertos that has some muscle, that looks forward to bigger works later in Mozart's life, that is Italian-Viennese rather than French in inspiration. And that shakes up a rather stale repertory, which is all to the good. The church sound, however, does not fit Kraggerud's aims.

Scriabin's Flamboyant Raptures

Somewhat overshadowed today by his compatriots Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky and Rachmaninov, Alexander Scriabin is nonetheless a key figure in Russian music. At the beginning of the 20th century, the composer and virtuoso pianist broke away from the Romantic legacy to offer a unique and innovative musical language which no one would follow. His work, deeply influenced by mystical philosophy and synaesthesia, would undergo a dazzling evolution in barely two decades, interrupted by his premature death at the age of 43.

Nelson Freire, a Humble Virtuoso

A child prodigy in his native country, the Brazilian pianist who passed away in November 2021 kept his distance from the noisy fanfare of fame. His enormous hands and his natural and virtuoso technique always assisted his full, powerful and mellow sound. Here Qobuz looks back at the career of a musician that for a long time was the “best-kept secret in the world of the piano”.

Martha Argerich: The Untameable Pianist

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.
