Serving as the Habsburg representative in Naples from 1728, Count von Harrach was, like any cultured man of his time, also keen on music. Back in his stronghold of Rohrau (Lower Austria) after his long stay of six years in Italy, he brought back all kinds of objects, paintings and scores that inspired this album, which has been designed by Maurice Steger, virtuoso of the "flautino", an instrument which was very fashionable in those days.

Small, easy to tune, handy and easily transportable, the recorder has given rise to a number of works written specifically for it. A dozen Italian composers rub elbows on the programme of this refreshingly voluble album. If Naples was one of the main centres of opera in the Italian peninsula, instrumental music also developed there with an equal brilliance.


The Swiss flautist Maurice Steger uses eight different instruments to interpret the works of Sammartini (in whose works he specialises), Hasse, Caldara, Vinci and Leo. And that's not to mention other small jewels cut by composers who are now totally forgotten but who formed an integral part of this huge gallery of musicians of eighteenth century Naples. We pass happily from the soprano flute to the Renaissance tenor flute, the viola or flutes which imitate the human voice. It is a rich panoply and produces as many distinct emotions as it does distinct sounds. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Undervalued: a Look Back on Female Composers

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho and Clara Schumann, several women have managed to break through the macho codes of the milieu and become composers. While the classical music landscape has been largely dominated by men in recent centuries, the work of their female colleagues, whether pioneers or contemporaries, is just as fascinating. Here we put eleven undervalued figures of female composition in the spotlight.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.
