Into the seemingly endless European (and increasingly American) market for soothing, crossover piano steps pianist Aleksander Debicz, a native of Wroclaw and a graduate of the Chopin University of Music in Warsaw. As a graduate of the traditional Polish system of pedagogy, he has plenty of experience in traditional repertory, but he has also experimented in jazz, rock, and other worlds beyond the classics. This Cinematic Piano is not a collection of film music classics, but a set of short original pieces in an improvisatory mode: film music without an actual film, despite the highly descriptive titles (A Wannabe Spy, A Letter to Mr. Newman). Debicz has been compared to Ludovico Einaudi, and he is certainly after the same listeners, but there's a different feel to the music, more economical and less monumental. If you like Einaudi, you may well like this, but a better comparison is Michael Nyman, who did write actual film music, but has only rarely used the piano. The minimalist ethos is present with Debicz, but repeated arpeggio figures serve more as a starting point than as a structural organizing device. Even if Einaudi and company are not your cup of tea, you may well admire how Debicz has carved distinctive little scenes out of a bland popular language.

Steve Reich in 10 Works

Steve Reich belongs to that very small circle of composers who can claim to have changed the face of contemporary music over the last fifty years. Qobuz presents a selection of ten of the most important works from his catalogue.

Bruno Walter, Memories of a Departed Legend

Listening to Bruno Walter’s recordings, in light of the splendid remastered editions published by Sony Classical, you tap into a truly humanistic culture. A tremendous conductor, music was his vocation, a way of life and an art of thought. His recordings have conserved his art vocal music, intense but never sentimental, thanks to a clear linearity complemented by a versatile rhythm, ensuring clarity, coherence and vigour.

Strauss & Kempe: Elective Affinities

The name of conductor Rudolf Kempe (1910-1976) is indissociable from those of composer Richard Strauss and the Dresden Staatskapelle orchestra. As Warner is now re-releasing the recordings made between 1970 and 1975, Qobuz is putting the spotlight on the Straussian legacy of a precise, often incisive conductor, who always paid the greatest attention to the text and its charms.
