Serving as the Habsburg representative in Naples from 1728, Count von Harrach was, like any cultured man of his time, also keen on music. Back in his stronghold of Rohrau (Lower Austria) after his long stay of six years in Italy, he brought back all kinds of objects, paintings and scores that inspired this album, which has been designed by Maurice Steger, virtuoso of the "flautino", an instrument which was very fashionable in those days.

Small, easy to tune, handy and easily transportable, the recorder has given rise to a number of works written specifically for it. A dozen Italian composers rub elbows on the programme of this refreshingly voluble album. If Naples was one of the main centres of opera in the Italian peninsula, instrumental music also developed there with an equal brilliance.


The Swiss flautist Maurice Steger uses eight different instruments to interpret the works of Sammartini (in whose works he specialises), Hasse, Caldara, Vinci and Leo. And that's not to mention other small jewels cut by composers who are now totally forgotten but who formed an integral part of this huge gallery of musicians of eighteenth century Naples. We pass happily from the soprano flute to the Renaissance tenor flute, the viola or flutes which imitate the human voice. It is a rich panoply and produces as many distinct emotions as it does distinct sounds. © François Hudry/Qobuz

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.

The Paradox of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Studio

Esa-Pekka Salonen is an acclaimed finnish conductor and prolific composer. With over 60 albums under his belt, he has heavily contributed to the history of musical interpretation. This is an interview with an exceptional musician, who discusses his unique approach to working on classical music in the studio.

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.
