Four French composers, two from our time—Ida Gotkovsky and Gracian Finzi—, two from the early twentieth century—Mel Bonis (apocope of Mélanie) and Lili Boulanger—share the cover of this album from Trio Empreinte, a rather rare ensemble because it brings together a saxophonist, a violinist and a pianist for an admittedly rather limited repertoire, though very interesting nonetheless. You won’t find  any traces of the Boulezian vanguard’s ravages in Gotkovsky’s or Finzi’s style (that some would consider as improvements…), and if both play off atonality and micro-tonality, it stays in line with a language inherited from the immediate post-war period, from Messiaen, Dutilleux, etc. Mel Bonis holds a rather special place, because in the course of her pretty long existence, she rubbed shoulders with Debussy, Franck, Satie, Chausson and Pierné. And despite some apparent sonic kinship, she hadn’t met Poulenc at the time she composed her Suite en Trio because the work dates from 1899, which is the year that Poulenc was born! She’s a composer well ahead of her time then, though she suffered from the fact that she was “just a woman” at a time when this still irked fogeys and old grouches. Finally, Lili Boulanger’s Clairières dans le ciel can only make you regret even more that this musician died so young. This is a rare repertoire that you’ll enjoy discovering, especially when it’s played this way. © SM/Qobuz

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.

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.
