CD series featuring a specific venue are rarer than those issued by ensembles but in one way more promising: the venue can issue live performances that have manifestly been well received. Consider this Chopin recital by Argentine-born pianist Nelson Goerner, emerging as one of Europe's top Chopin specialists. The engineers from London's Wigmore Hall retain generous stretches of the applause that follows at the end of each work, and you can feel the audience warming to Goerner's approach as the concert proceeds. He is not an exceptionally powerful pianist, but his readings are poetic, with a strong sense of the long line in the opening Polonaise-Fantaisie in A flat major, Op. 61, and the Andante spianato and grande polonaise in E flat major, Op. 22. The shorter Nocturnes, Op. 62, placed between these works have a remarkable floating quality that draws you in consistently. The bulk of the program goes over to the 12 Etudes, Op. 10, which allow Goerner to showcase his technical precision in a quiet, confident way. Following his fellow South American Claudio Arrau, Goerner plays the etudes as a complete set, with only natural pauses between them -- plausible for those who like to hear them this way but questionable in view of the lack of any evidence that Chopin or his followers commonly did so. Still, an above-average Chopin recital on the contemplative side.

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.
