It goes without saying that the title "Mystery Sonatas" by David Lang (born in 1957) is based on the Rosary Sonatas, also known as the "Mystery Sonatas", written in 1678 by Ignaz Biber. That said, Lang deviates from the model in several ways: his sonatas are for solo violin, while Biber accompanied some of them with a continuo. What’s more, Lang does not use the "scordattura" technique, the unusual violin tuning used by Biber to create incredible sonorities. This is not to say that Lang's work is not extraordinary, especially when you consider he wrote it for violinist Augustin Hadelich, who records it here as a world premiere. Another bridge between Lang and Biber is the three-part design: joy, pain and glory. Lang's affiliation with the minimalist movement is of course evident; however, his frequent incursions into rock, modernism and mockery have no place here, as he seeks above all to express an introspection around the mysteries - religious or otherwise - of life and beauty. Here, Hadelich beautifully takes all the composer's conceptions into his own hands. © SM/Qobuz

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.

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.

Bruno Walter, Memories of a Departed Legend

Listening to Bruno Walter’s recordings, in light of the splendid remastered editions published by Sony Classical, you tap into a truly humanistic culture. A tremendous conductor, music was his vocation, a way of life and an art of thought. His recordings have conserved his art vocal music, intense but never sentimental, thanks to a clear linearity complemented by a versatile rhythm, ensuring clarity, coherence and vigour.
