The German musician Christian Löffler is continuing his exploration of the archives of the Deutsche Grammophon label, which involved digging among shellac records, 78s  recorded in the 1920s and 1930s. The producer, known for his splenetic electronic works, revisited four Beethoven tracks in November 2020 on the occasion of the composer's 250th birthday. The version of the Pastorale reaches heights of reverie, and this nature-lover (he lives on the shores of the Baltic) stretches the string section towards the clouds. In addition to these four Beethovens, set at the end of the disc, Löffler offers reworks of compositions by Bach, Chopin, Wagner, Smetana and Bizet, often sampling the quieter passages to insert them with astonishing naturalness into his electronic flow. Convinced that German electronic musicians would have made excellent classical composers in the past, the artist's goal is quite clear here: to attract a new audience to “this timeless, wild-looking music”. ”When listening to the recordings, I got the idea that Beethoven’s music was actually very human and accessible but became somewhat unearthly with decades of replaying and overthinking it. I wanted to bring it back to the very basic feels”, Löffler explains. And he has! © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

Sofia Coppola on Air

To celebrate 20 years since the release of her film “The Virgin Suicides”, Qobuz takes a look back at some of the top musical moments from the films of Sofia Coppola, like her collaborations with French duo Air or Thomas Mars from the band Phoenix.

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.

Paul Van Nevel, the ancient music craftsman

The saviour of lost causes from the Renaissance? That’s him! The insatiable digger, tirelessly tracking down savant polyphonies from the Early Middle Ages in European libraries? Him again! The recording of the first opera ever written by a woman (Francesca Caccini)? That’s him still, Paul Van Nevel, musicologist, cigar enthusiast, art historian, and mainly, music director of the Huelgas Ensemble since 1970. Let’s take an eager look at the Van-Nevelian music universe.
