This is a re-release of a recording from 2005: and even back then, Matt Haimovitz was enthusiastically exploring unusual repertoires, like these Preludes and Fugues by Bach, transcribed by Mozart in 1782. In fact, Mozart didn't only take pieces from the Well-tempered Clavier: he also borrowed fugues from The Art of the Fugue, with two sonatas for organ, and even something from Wilhelm Friedmann. As for the adagio preludes, four are by Mozart himself: only two are taken from the Cantor. This selection represents a kind of bridge connecting Bach and Mozart, as much in terms of form as content. The piece for string trio is wholly the work of the divine Wolfgang Amadeus: this piece isn't a transposition by any of our other three compères. Another 100% Mozart offering is the fantastic Divertimento KV 563 from 1788, the only work for string trio within this collection, aside from the explorations of Bach's catalogue. The E-flat major scale – the same as used on The Magic Flute – and the dedication to Mozart's fellow lodge-member Michael Puchberg (who was also a very generous friend, frequently rescuing Mozart from dire financial straits) make this piece a favourite among Freemasons. It includes a magisterial demonstration of how, even when limited to a string trio, Mozart could still conjure up a symphonic spirit and a tragic atmosphere, in particular in the heart-rending Adagio and the no-less moving minor variations on the Andante. The greatest of Mozart, achieved with strikingly scanty means. © SM/Qobuz

In your panoramas...
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.

Koechlin, the Alchemist

Deeply rooted in both tradition and innovation, the immense work of Koechlin bewildered his contemporaries due to its many facets, its freedom and its philosophical dimension. The album finally allows us to grasp the full measure of this sound alchemist and brilliant prophet who, most probably, was born before his time… We’ll be thinking of him on November 27th, the date marking 150 years since his birth.
