It's common to find the Requiem in D minor, the Cantique de Jean Racine, and the Messe basse of Gabriel Fauré programmed together, and at first glance, this 2014 SACD release from Stephen Cleobury and the Choir of King's College, Cambridge, resembles many other recordings of these beloved works. What distinguishes this performance of the Requiem, though, is the period treatment it receives in Marc Rigaudière's fresh reconstruction of the 1889 liturgical premiere. The choir of men and boys is accompanied by the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, which employs a small string section, augmented by harp and brass, and the organist uses stops comparable to the registration of the organ in L'église de la Madeleine in Paris, where the work was first given. Somewhat surprising is the truncated offertory, the Hostias for baritone solo, which is the earliest version; for the sake of completeness, the full Offertoire in John Rutter's edition is provided separately (track 9). This isn't the first time Fauré's original version has been recorded, but this performance is remarkable for the pains Cleobury and his musicians have taken to render the work as close as possible to its first state. Similarly, the Cantique de Jean Racine is performed as originally written for choir and organ. This is a wonderful recording that will please listeners who are interested in historically informed performances, though many who love the better known 1901 orchestral version of the Requiem may be disappointed by the leaner feeling of this performance.

In your panoramas...
Glenn Gould, Extravaganza

How can I describe – let alone define – this truly one-of-a-kind pianist? As an alien, perhaps. An alien who whisks us away at supersonic speed before slowing down to land on an infinite world where there is time for everything. It is the acceptance and cultivation of his otherness (or his alienness?) that has made this unconventional pianist one of the greatest and most loved (and criticised) musicians ever.

Scriabin's Flamboyant Raptures

Somewhat overshadowed today by his compatriots Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky and Rachmaninov, Alexander Scriabin is nonetheless a key figure in Russian music. At the beginning of the 20th century, the composer and virtuoso pianist broke away from the Romantic legacy to offer a unique and innovative musical language which no one would follow. His work, deeply influenced by mystical philosophy and synaesthesia, would undergo a dazzling evolution in barely two decades, interrupted by his premature death at the age of 43.

Picasso, when painting meets music

Picasso's modernist genius swiftly stretched beyond the pictorial and spread into music and dance, two art forms with which the Spanish painter always maintained a close relationship, to the point of influencing composer friends he met along the way.
