Ivor Bolton and the Basel Symphony Orchestra continue their exploration into Fauré’s music with the third instalment in their series, devoted to religious music this time. Although he was the organist for the Madeleine Church in Paris, Fauré was not religious and only wrote a handful of religious pieces. While the Requiem is featured as the main attraction in this album and is still very well-known, by contrast, the Messe des pêcheurs de Villerville (Mass of the fisherman of Villerville) is a more simplistic treasure to be discovered.

This Messe was the product of his friendship with André Messager and was composed for four-handed piano in the small fishing village on the coast of Normandy between Trouville and Honfleur, where the two composers had gone on holiday. After the success of the first performance of the original version for women’s choir, harmonium and violin, Messager arranged the first four parts of this mass and Fauré the last. It was finally published in 1907 in a heavily amended form under the name Messe basse (“Low mass”, meaning a mass without music), but Ivor Bolton and his singers and musicians have performed the original version here.

Fauré received an honourable mention at the age of just eighteen when he submitted the magnificent Psalm, “Super flumina Babylonis” to a composition competition in the Niedermayer School in Paris. He won the first prize the following year with his composition dedicated to César Franck entitled Cantique de Jean Racine (“Chant by Jean Racine”), which is more widely known nowadays. Also featured on the album is the rare gem Passion, a prologue for Edmond Haraucourt’s play “Mystère En Deux Chants Et Six Parties” that was written in 1890 without Fauré’s music. © François Hudry/Qobuz

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.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.
