Housed by !K7, the German label behind the famous compilation series DJ Kicks, Niklas Paschburg drew inspiration from the shores of the Baltic Sea for his first album Oceanic in 2018. This time, he hid himself away on the Norwegian island of Svalbard, the place where humanity is building a conservational database of all existing types of grains and seeds in the Svalbard Global Seed Vault. Although he was quickly absorbed into the neo-classical category (“I love Nils Frahm’s music and I am so grateful to him and Max Richter for paving the way, but I also try and show that I can exist as myself”), he seems instead to belong to the ‘scene’ of globe-trotting musicians, like Molécule who went off to Greenland to sample some icebergs or Soundwalk Collective who spent two months composing on a sailing boat on the Black Sea.

The German artist, who has played the piano since he was 5 and has trained in classical but also jazz music, has created a glacial but radiant album as if he wanted to push the far Northern latitudes down south. Case in point: If, carried by a celestial piano and a stifled rimshot beat, or Cyan, written in the aftermath of a blizzard. The record was almost entirely composed in Svalbard, but parts were written upon Paschburg’s return, like Duvet which was penned during the summer in Brighton alongside Andy Barlow from trailblazing trip hop group Lamb. Duvet is a more intimate track, and features a bee that seemed attracted to the microphone and which Niklas Paschburg decided to leave on the final cut. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 Years of Freedom

Italian violinist Fabio Biondi – famous especially for his interpretation of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons with his orchestra, Europa Galante – refuses to be compartmentalised. We take a look back at the career of a musician blessed with a supple mind and an extraordinary talent for the Baroque violin.

Glenn Gould, Extravaganza

How can I describe – let alone define – this truly one-of-a-kind pianist? As an alien, perhaps. An alien who whisks us away at supersonic speed before slowing down to land on an infinite world where there is time for everything. It is the acceptance and cultivation of his otherness (or his alienness?) that has made this unconventional pianist one of the greatest and most loved (and criticised) musicians ever.

Radu Lupu: an Understated Genius

Radu Lupu was a poet, magician and pianist who pursued the indescribable. The Romanian artist’s musical approach was brought to life by his tormented and fiercely introverted personality, which was always shrouded in mystery. When sat at his piano, he would knead the keys like dough, seeking a powerful, consistent sound. Radu Lupu passed away on the 17th of April 2022, leaving behind a relatively small, yet incredibly valuable, discographic legacy.
