Founded in 1983 by German siblings, the Mandelring Quartett has recorded extensively. It has produced complete works and anthologies that (perhaps for the time being) avoid Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven and concentrate on Schubert, Shostakovich, Mendelssohn, Onslow, Goldschmidt, Brahms and Janáček.

In this new album, they wisely include Maurice Ravel's famous Quartet in F alongside the only piece of its kind composed by Fernand de La Tombelle, written seven years before the work by his younger brother. Long one of the vast crowd of those forgotten by the history of music, La Tombelle (1854-1928) was one of the founders of the Schola Cantorum in Paris alongside Vincent d'Indy. A movement of rediscovery, largely initiated by the Bru Zane Foundation in Venice, has been taking place in recent years around this prolific composer who was curious about everything from poetry to astronomy, photography, the plastic arts and gastronomy.

His Quartet in E major, part of the French quartet revival with those of Vincent d'Indy, Chausson and Albéric Magnard, is a welcome discovery. La Tombelle's language, clearly inherited from the German composers of the 19th century, is that of a cultivated and humanist aristocrat, oscillating between classicism and modernity. The overwhelming sunlight emanating from the young Ravel's pure diamond can illuminate this rare work and at the same time overshadow it, depending on one's tastes, but the risk was worth taking. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of Freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.

Radu Lupu: an Understated Genius

Radu Lupu was a poet, magician and pianist who pursued the indescribable. The Romanian artist’s musical approach was brought to life by his tormented and fiercely introverted personality, which was always shrouded in mystery. When sat at his piano, he would knead the keys like dough, seeking a powerful, consistent sound. Radu Lupu passed away on the 17th of April 2022, leaving behind a relatively small, yet incredibly valuable, discographic legacy.

The Earth’s Song: The World of Gustav Mahler

What could have prompted Gustav Mahler to compose a work as unclassifiable as this one? Written between 1907 and 1908, a pivotal period in Mahler's life, The Song of the Earth occupies a special place within his oeuvre. It combines the “fin de siècle” spirit with the fascination for the exotic that was spreading amongst his peers at the time. Vienna was in turmoil when this music was composed, and the piece oscillates between the notions of farewell and new beginnings. With a lot of layers to peel back, The Song of the Earth definitely merits a closer look.
