Two of the greatest symphonies from England's greatest symphonist, Vaughan Williams: what a find! To cut a long story short, he composed nine symphonies alongside other pieces, themselves no minor works. The Sixth, finished in 1947, is a real orchestral deluge, in which wailing, hysterical saxophones, macabre xylophones, delirious brass and terrifying, martial percussion all meet, in particular in the titanic Scherzo, which follows a sombre, ghostly fourth and final movement which never rises above a pianissimo (frequently with the note, "senza crescendo"), and in which we find neither theme nor development, but only a  powerful and meandering polyphony made up of rhythmic and melismatic micro-cells,  in which some of the more desolate moments presage Gorecki's Third - in short, this Sixth is an immense masterpiece. The album signed by the Hallé Orchestra directed by Mark Elder closes with the no-less-imposing Fourth from 1935, the first of Vaughan Williams's symphonies to be published without a title - pure music, detached from any external element. More severe than the three that preceded it, it is nonetheless possessed of a great depth and a sombre intensity, with a few amusing echoes of Hindemith, which could leave no-one indifferent. © SM/Qobuz

Sibelius: The 10 key moments of his discography

The discography of the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius (1865 – 1957) is wonderfully rich, high-quality and diverse. Qobuz offers you an overview focusing on 10 particularly significant moments.

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.

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.
