John Williams’ Violin concerto No. 2 is dedicated to violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter and draws inspiration from her style, energy and playing. Given her fame and success, the American composer often found himself humbly reflecting upon what exactly his work could offer her during its composition.

John Williams put his all into this work, drawing upon his vast understanding of the symphonic repertoire (and evidently his exceptional memory!). There’s no specific references within this composition since it’s woven from musical elements from all over the place. It’s a composite piece, but it’s ultimately rather personal.

Anne-Sophie Mutter’s melodic playing is given the opportunity to really shine on this recording, since the composition includes all manner of violin techniques and styles (and provides luxurious orchestration). Originally created on the 24th of July 2021 by the Boston Symphony Orchestra, conducted by the composer on his ninetieth birthday, Concerto No. 2 was recorded shortly afterwards in October of the same year. It was also coupled with new arrangements of a variety of film music (The Long Goodbye, Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark), which were made especially for Anne-Sophie Mutter. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Undervalued: a Look Back on Female Composers

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho and Clara Schumann, several women have managed to break through the macho codes of the milieu and become composers. While the classical music landscape has been largely dominated by men in recent centuries, the work of their female colleagues, whether pioneers or contemporaries, is just as fascinating. Here we put eleven undervalued figures of female composition in the spotlight.

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”.
