Thematic albums have become widespread, and often enjoy varying degrees of success. The pianist Leif Ove Andsnes, long known for his seriousness and exceptional musical talent, has chosen two crucial years of Mozart's output as the programme for this album and the one that is set to follow it. In 1785, Mozart was at the height of his genius. He had just been initiated into Freemasonry, which was then in vogue in Vienna; he had finished the 6 Quartets dedicated to his friend Haydn; he had begun composing the Marriage of Figaro and gave numerous "Academies", playing his own works on the piano.

These productive times form the basis of Leif Ove Andsnes's project, which brings together three contemporary and very different concertos, from the dramatic D minor (n° 20, K. 466), to the luminous C major (n° 21, K. 467), and the most original (and longest at 23 minutes), the powerful E flat major (n° 22, K. 482). The prodigious year of 1785 also saw the creation of the Fantasia in C minor which seems to recall the teachings of the fickle Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, the Masonic Funeral Music in the same dark tone and the Quartet with piano in G minor, another key in which Mozart wrote some masterpieces. By turns a pianist, a chamber musician and a conductor, the distinguished musician Leif Ove Andsnes offers up an album that is as historically coherent as it is musically successful. © François Hudry/Qobuz

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.

Nelson Freire, a Humble Virtuoso

A child prodigy in his native country, the Brazilian pianist who passed away in November 2021 kept his distance from the noisy fanfare of fame. His enormous hands and his natural and virtuoso technique always assisted his full, powerful and mellow sound. Here Qobuz looks back at the career of a musician that for a long time was the “best-kept secret in the world of the piano”.

Martha Argerich: The Untameable Pianist

For over 60 years the Argentinian pianist Martha Argerich has amazed audiences all over the world with her wild, impulsive playing and her constant risk-taking, overcoming every technical difficulty by turning each of her performances into a fascinating journey.
