Directed by the Munich conductor Frank Strobel (who also oversaw the mixing), the re-recording of the Metropolis soundtrack took place on the occasion of the restoration of this Fritz Lang classic, 83 years after its release. In 1927, the composer Gottfried Huppertz (1887-1937) was already a recognised film composer. Most notably, he gave the world the music for Nibelungen by the same Fritz Lang, in 1924. With Metropolis, he helped to establish film music as a respected form, at a time when the "genre" was in its infancy. Beyond the precision with which the score is written in terms of its correspondence with the images of a futuristic city, we find several fundamentals which would shape the golden age of a certain aesthetic in film music, in Germany, but also in Hollywood. First of all, it is composed in a tonal mode, epic and neo-romantic; it takes in many leitmotifs which describe both the characters and the themes of the film (love, rebellion, etc.) and finally, in spite of the general classicism, the Huppertz score is also a music of its time, Huppertz not hesitating to call in jazz harmonies and syncopated rhythms. And so this music contains all the elements which will be present across many of the film productions that would follow, including the Star Wars saga! ©NM/Qobuz

Album Description

Directed by the Munich conductor Frank Strobel (who also oversaw the mixing), the re-recording of the Metropolis soundtrack took place on the occasion of the restoration of this Fritz Lang classic, 83 years after its release. In 1927, the composer Gottfried Huppertz (1887-1937) was already a recognised film composer. Most notably, he gave the world the music for Nibelungen by the same Fritz Lang, in 1924. With Metropolis, he helped to establish film music as a respected form, at a time when the "genre" was in its infancy. Beyond the precision with which the score is written in terms of its correspondence with the images of a futuristic city, we find several fundamentals which would shape the golden age of a certain aesthetic in film music, in Germany, but also in Hollywood. First of all, it is composed in a tonal mode, epic and neo-romantic; it takes in many leitmotifs which describe both the characters and the themes of the film (love, rebellion, etc.) and finally, in spite of the general classicism, the Huppertz score is also a music of its time, Huppertz not hesitating to call in jazz harmonies and syncopated rhythms. And so this music contains all the elements which will be present across many of the film productions that would follow, including the Star Wars saga! ©NM/Qobuz

Bossa nova, the Eternal Wave

Since its creation in the late 1950s, Bossa-nova has become an indispensable part of Brazilian music. The style’s strong evocative power won over artists from all around the world and earned recognition for many first-rate musicians whose works are now seen as classics.

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.

The Little Tramp: The Great Composer

As the Paris Philharmonic puts on a major exhibition dedicated entirely to his career, it’s the perfect opportunity to take a look back at Charlie Chaplin’s close ties with music. He may be famous as a legendary performer and director, but the man with the iconic bowler hat and cane also composed the music in his films himself.
