To mark his debut on Deutsche Grammophon with the Philadelphia Orchestra, Yannick Nézet-Séguin pays tribute to his legendary predecessor on the podium, Leopold Stokowski. The transcriptions of Bach's organ music are among Stokowski's most celebrated achievements, and none is more famous than his expansive arrangement of the Toccata and Fugue in D minor, which was prominently featured in Walt Disney's Fantasia. It's a classic showpiece for the orchestra, as are Stokowski's fulsome orchestrations of the "Little" Fugue in G minor, and the Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor. Somewhat less obvious is the choice of Igor Stravinsky's Le Sacre du printemps, though Stokowski gave the work its American premiere and recorded it for RCA Victor in 1929 with the Philadelphia Orchestra, so its place on this program is justified. Not that Nézet-Séguin would present a slavish imitation of Stokowski's interpretation, because modern standards of performance are so much higher than when the work was still a novelty, and the Philadelphia Orchestra today is far more skilled in playing this piece. Nézet-Séguin's reading is much faster and sharper than Stokowski's, and the digital reproduction is far superior for depth, tone colors, and details. Indeed, this is one of the finest modern performances of Le Sacre on CD, and fans of the piece will find much to get excited about. To round out the disc, a performance of Stravinsky's Pastorale is offered as an encore. Highly recommended.

Steve Reich in 10 Works

Steve Reich belongs to that very small circle of composers who can claim to have changed the face of contemporary music over the last fifty years. Qobuz presents a selection of ten of the most important works from his catalogue.

Picasso, when painting meets music

Picasso's modernist genius swiftly stretched beyond the pictorial and spread into music and dance, two art forms with which the Spanish painter always maintained a close relationship, to the point of influencing composer friends he met along the way.

The Little Tramp: The Great Composer

As the Paris Philharmonic puts on a major exhibition dedicated entirely to his career, it’s the perfect opportunity to take a look back at Charlie Chaplin’s close ties with music. He may be famous as a legendary performer and director, but the man with the iconic bowler hat and cane also composed the music in his films himself.
