Many will be familiar with pianist Maxence Cyrin’s style without even knowing it, as his superb cover of the Pixies’ Where Is My Mind has been played here and there and everywhere and sticks in your head all day long. Indeed, in several of his albums, Cyrin has been putting his own classical twist on popular hits, from Depeche Mode and Daft Punk to Beyoncé, bridging the gap between current music and a particular French sensitivity to sound that was also favoured by Ravel, Satie and Debussy. In 2015, Cyrin invited us into his realm of dark and deeply melancholic neoclassicism for the first time when he released an album of original compositions, Nocturnes, under the label Evidence Classics. His latest release, Aurora, released by Warner Classics, is a logical continuation. The album is captivating right from the opener Endless Poetry, and the following track Mer de velours (“Velvet Sea”) envelops your emotions entirely as your mind drifts away to the open sea. This album is mature and impresses with its outward simplicity, particularly the compelling Silk, which sounds as if it’s come straight out of a Tim Burton film. With this brilliant release, Maxence Cyrin has well and truly joined the ranks of contemporary piano music masters likes Philip Glass, next to the more spirited Max Richter, Chilly Gonzales and Yann Tiersen. That’s certainly no mean feat. © Yan Céh/Qobuz

Jonas Kaufmann in 10 Key Albums

With his flattering physique reminiscent of a handsome romantic, German Jonas Kaufmann has successfully modernised the image of opera tenors, long considered as unrepentant tumblers… Beyond his powerful and versatile voice, Jonas Kaufmann possesses an immense repertoire in several languages, masters all styles of opera, from Wagner to Verdi or Puccini, and sings the lied or the French opera to perfection. A great admirer of Fritz Wunderlich, he started his career “the old fashioned way”, in a company touring around small German theatres before taking off on his own towards a prodigious career. After a chaotic year in 2017 due to a ruptured blood vessel on his vocal chords, Jonas Kaufmann seems to have fully recovered and is working on countless new projects. Qobuz looks back on his career, highlighting 10 albums.

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.

Women Composers: A Secret History

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho, music history has been marked by female figures who “dared” to write music. Is creation a male privilege? Our sound museum does hold more well-known and recognised male than female composers. Yet their works are no less exciting and there is absolutely no reason for them to play second fiddle, or be ignored altogether. Below, you’ll find a defence and illustration of female composition works through eleven musical portraits.
