Jon Hopkins has been in a contemplative mood lately. In 2020, he fell in love with a hundred-year-old Tibetan bowl he had found in an antique shop in New Delhi. This sparked a series called Meditations with the title Singing Bowl (Ascension). Now the Royal College of Music London resident has returned, on solo (upright) piano, with a four-track EP. This is the little brother of his 2014 release Asleep Versions, a collection of four ambient covers of some of his favourite tracks. The album enjoys an all-British cast, with Roger and Brian Eno (Wintergreen), Thom Yorke (Dawn Chorus), Luke Abbott (Modern Driveway) and James Yorkston (Heron). On these four super-calm tracks we hear the piano at work, but also birdsong, or a clatter of dishes from the kitchen. It is as if he were inviting us into his musical meditation. "[...]whatever was going on outside my room is included and even accentuated," explains Hopkins. "I want people to hear not just the recordings but to feel how it felt to be there and make them. It was a deep experience." © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.

Nils Frahm, an Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.
