Pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason presents us with her album entitled Summertime in which she explores the most significant realms of 20th-century American music, including the world of the spirituals whose roots run deep in American musical culture. We are offered some world premieres and some rarities (Coleridge-Taylor's pieces, Copland's The Cat and the Mouse) presented alongside some popular 20th century works (Gershwin's Summertime and I Got Rhythm in Earl Wild's arrangements, and Barber's Sonata). In this fine recording, Kanneh-Mason is virtuosic and totally captivating in the miniatures, and she displays much grace in Gershwin's Three Preludes, as well as in the great masterpiece of the programme, the Barber Sonata, which - without reaching the perfection of Kenny Broberg's recording, a version that has gone unnoticed and yet has been published by Decca Gold - is astonishing in its restrained lyricism and its decisive artistry of construction. A delightful surprise for your contemplative evenings in the summer of 2021. © Pierre-Yves Lascar/Qobuz

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.

Marc Ribot, the Anti-guitar Hero

For over thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.

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”.
