In his monumental work L’Encre de la mélancolie, the philosopher Jean Starobinski explains at length how the feeling of melancholy has been described as one of the body's humours since Antiquity: this "black bile" which was the indicator of an evil power in which artists of all periods have indulged. This very strong and persistent feeling when faced with disease, war, epidemics and romantic disillusionment has been widely described in literature, fine art and, of course, music, as this album shows. The subtle layers of melancholy presented here range from simple disappointment to the darkest despair, introduced by a music that is in tune with our times, where we are threatened with global warming and the destruction of our ecosystems, and as the warning signs of the grave dangers facing humanity as a whole.

Choral conductor Adrián Rodríguez van der Spoel, who was born in Argentina, moved to the Netherlands where he founded Música Temprana, an ensemble that focuses mainly on the musical repertoire from the colonial period in Latin America. Together with his singers, he has decided to awake our consciences by holding up a mirror between 15th century Spain and our own period, with a selection of Spanish melodies and extracts from the famous collection of Canto de la Sibila describing a God implacable in the face of the destruction of the world. Even under the protection of the Virgin Mary, it dies buried under a rain of ashes.

Here is a recording that resounds like the tocsin warning through a musical vision of extreme modesty, expressing a diffuse desolation, which is perhaps that of our powerlessness in the face of our current issues. © 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.

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.

Marc Ribot, the Anti-guitar Hero

For over thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.
