If, usually, we associate Paganini to his twenty-four Caprices and the devilish virtuosity they demand of the violinist, you will see him here in a completely new light: the works for violin and guitar, much closer to Haydn and Mozart than to the devil’s hand that guided them for the Caprices. Written at the very beginning of the 19th century for some, and in the 1830s for the ones of the collections known as Centone di sonate, these works give prominence both to the violin and the guitar—we will remind you here that Paganini was also a phenomenal guitarist. As for the term “Centone”, it evokes a collection of pieces composed of elements reused from one or many other works; some kind of patchwork, in a way, and indeed the composer integrated there a bit of everything that was in fashion at the time, from the waltz to the polonaise, the pastoral to the march—we don’t necessarily know from whom or from where he took it, or if he just used the term to characterize the medley aspect of the thing. Fabio Biondi on violin and Giangiacomo Pinardi on Romantic guitar (an instrument from 1825) have a field day, and prove us that Paganini could be something other than a simple dispenser of virtuosity. © SM/Qobuz

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.

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.
