The decision to award a Qobuzism is made unanimously by the Qobuz team. In most cases, a Qobuzism is given to a “crossover” album in the best sense of the term, in that it will speak to all of our users.

By awarding a Qobuzism, we aim to draw attention to standout albums across a wide range of genres. In theory a Qobuzism is intended to alert you to an artist’s debut which has ventured into unexplored territory; but albums which merit this distinction can, in practice, come from anywhere! In each instance Qobuz endorses the album entirely, working with the artist in order to give them the greatest exposure possible – both within and outside of Qobuz. 

What we love is to give our Qobuz users the chance to discover recordings which are not necessarily what they would normally go for.

Hi-Res Booklet Onderscheidingen Qobuzism - 5 Sterne Fono Forum Klassik
It was in 2012 that Latvian Peteris Vasks composed Klātbūtne (Presence) for cello and string orchestra, on the instigation of Sol Gabetta. A whole world separates this recent work, inscribed in a rather tonal language  - in line, for example, of Schnittke, and sometimes Shostakovich  - to 1978's Grāmata čellam for solo cello, with which Sol Gabetta ends this new recording. This latter work, in two movements: Fortissimo and Pianissimo, is still tinged with the vanguard of the time, at least in the way it was designed by Witold Lutosławski and Krzysztof Penderecki. With Klātbūtne, Vasks offers some of the most moving and profound of today's written music to the cello of Sol Gabetta, who certainly knows how to draw out the true substance of the piece. We will also hear Musique du soir for cello and organ, an infinitely soft and beautiful melody, rooted in a nostalgia worthy at times of Gabriel Fauré himself . © SM / Qobuz
