It’s not a typo: the duo is indeed called Cheng² Duo, in other words Duo Cheng squared. It makes sense considering the cellist is named Bryan Cheng, and the pianist Silvie (again, not a typo!) Cheng – yes, they are siblings. Despite what their last name may suggest, the Chengs are in fact from Canada and made their debuts as soloists with the country’s best orchestras before going on a world tour to pursue their now international career. The family cooperation, as a duo, led them to the present Iberian repertoire, made up almost exclusively of rewritings of works for piano, vocals and orchestra: only Turina’s Danzas fantásticas is performed in its original version for piano solo, and Cassadó’s Suite for cello solo… on cello solo, one could have guessed! What an incredible energy these two bring to the table! Some arrangements are in fact the work of big names such as Maurice Gendron, Cassadó or Piatigorsky. The Spain of Cheng² is packed with fire and flames – who could resist the Song of Wildfire, and of tenderness, of El amor brujo −, Falla’s Siete canciones populares españolas (Seven Spanish Folksongs) are a wonderful achievement. Here is a strong and beautiful album, presenting – with perfect conviction – well-known works but in new formats, thus shining a new musical light onto them. © SM/Qobuz

Jordi Savall: Music, life and recording

It was a rainy October night in the Bugey. On October nights, it's always raining in the Bugey. It was around midnight. There were fifty of us, waiting in the cold, the wet and the rapt silence at the Ambronay Festival. All of a sudden, and without a sound, Jordi Savall was there, sopping wet in a white raincoat, like Bogart in Casablanca, holding onto a hard case shaped like a human body. Moving slowly, he drew out not a person but a viola de gamba, which he started tuning and stringing with the greatest care. And then the miracle descended upon the auditorium.

François Couperin, the modern harpsichord

A favourite of Louis XIV, François Couperin (1668-1733) was the harpsichord superstar of the 18th century. At the time, the harpsichord was a prestigious instrument which was at the height of its fame (although it would return to obscurity in the following century), and Couperin revolutionised the way it was played, breaking a path that would later be trod by other virtuosos of the period like Dandrieu or Rameau. The Quebecois harpsichordist Olivier Fortin tells Qobuz the story of "Couperin the Great".

Mason Bates' weird and wonderful electronic symphonies

What do you mean, you haven’t heard about Mason Bates (yet)? He is one of the hottest names on the North-American music scene. Born in 1977, Bates is a symphonic and lyrical composer as well as an electro DJ (under the alias DJ Masonic) – two completely opposing genres which he takes great delight in mixing. Around half of his symphonic and lyrical work consists, in one way or another, of electronic sounds. The majority of these sounds are “every day sounds”, which are prerecorded and later put into a score. On the release date of his brilliant opera The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, Qobuz interviewed this extraordinary person.
