Federico Mompou outlived most of his generation, yet his work remained obscure and did not receive much attention until after his death in 1987. Mompou's rarefied music remained true to its origins in Catalan song and the French styles he adopted in his youth -- alternating between lyrical simplicity and impressionistic wonderment. Many of the pieces in Música callada (1959-1967) bear similarities to Satie, but the greater influence of Debussy is apparent in the music, which is often spiced with added-note harmonies and polychords of ambiguous tonality. While the Primer cuaderno is thoroughly modal and placid, the Segundo cuaderno offers more chromatic possibilities, and Mompou indulges in some unsettling, dense passages reminiscent of late Scriabin. The Tercer cuaderno and the Cuarto cuaderno are both quieter, mingling brief, song-like phrases with widely spaced pitches that are allowed to ring in sonorous haloes. Mompou's own performance of this work is controlled yet passionate, within the narrow bounds he set out in the music. The volume rarely rises to fortissimo, but even at the softest dynamics, Mompou plays in an intense reverie that is compelling. The sound of this disc is clear and full, and only a minimal amount of tape hiss is audible in the softest passages.

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.

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.

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.
