Little by little, Francesco Corti begins to stand out with his colourful personality. In some respects, he reminds us of Ottavio Dantone and his vivid, overflowing imagination. Here, the masterful blend of rigour and fantasy is striking. And what a copious program – over 80 minutes long!
The Praeludium BWV 815a is the ideal entry point before a French Suite in E Flat major (No. 4) by J. S. Bach (here the 1722 version, which never appears constrained by its structure). Have we ever heard such natural polyphony, beautifully deployed harmonies and rhythmic diversity? In fact we have, with pianist Tatiana Nikolayeva in a 1987 concert in Salzburg (Orfeo).
Then come the (re)discoveries. If Leonhardt had once shown (Teldec) the beauty of Kuhnau's biblical sonatas, Francesco Corti gives Il lamento di Hiskia an unexpected depth. It takes on a truly transitional form between the French Tombeaux and the denser recitatives of Bach's Passions, whereas L'allegrezza del Re directly evokes France. After a short and unremarkable Hasse passage, Francesco Corti throws himself into Praeludium, Fugue & Postludium in G minor by Georg Böhm, which is perhaps even more poetic than its twin, Praeludium, Fugue et Allegro in E flat major by J. S. Bach (BWV 998) which the harpsichordist performs in an unrushed and improvisational manner, a performance style which can also be found in Capriccio Sopra’s overture lontananza del fratello dilettissimo BWV 992.
Ken Yoshida captures a wonderful recording of the sublime Andrea Restelli harpsichord which is modelled on a 1738 Christian Valer preserved at Nuremberg, played by one of the most intense artists on the young Baroque scene. Discover this recital in all its glory, it is certainly worth the listen. © Pierre-Yves Lascar/Qobuz

10 Versions of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique

As a proper manifesto of French romanticism, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique marked the 19th century as much as Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring impacted the 20th. Composed in Paris − which at the time was a global crucible for artistic creation − these two masterpieces catapulted musical language into another dimension. On December 5th, 1830 the revolutionary work of 27-year-old Hector Berlioz deeply moved the musicians present in the small room of the old academy of music, among whom were Meyerbeer and Liszt, who were impressed by the extraordinary audacity of this piece presented just three years after Beethoven’s death.

Martha Argerich: The Untameable Pianist

For over 60 years the Argentinian pianist Martha Argerich has amazed audiences all over the world with her wild, impulsive playing and her constant risk-taking, overcoming every technical difficulty by turning each of her performances into a fascinating journey.

Undervalued: a Look Back on Female Composers

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho and Clara Schumann, several women have managed to break through the macho codes of the milieu and become composers. While the classical music landscape has been largely dominated by men in recent centuries, the work of their female colleagues, whether pioneers or contemporaries, is just as fascinating. Here we put eleven undervalued figures of female composition in the spotlight.
