Even more than other works by this composer, the eight-movement Through the Mangrove Tunnels reflects the environment of Scott Lee's native Florida. The work has a basis of percussive, pointillist sounds that evoke the swamps' spooky atmosphere, but Lee adds to this basis a host of other sounds that reflect the stories of their human inhabitants, and the music is "polyphonic" in the broadest sense. The work is for string quartet, piano, and drum set, and Lee's treatment of all his instruments is flexible. The quartet weaves in and out of the basic texture, and the percussion instruments sometimes fall into fixed rhythms, which may be drawn from jazz or rock music. These junctures have important structural significance, introducing episodes that relate to the history of Lee's mangrove tunnels and Weedon Island nature preserve. This history includes Native American meetings, a movie studio, speakeasies, and other events dating back to the time of the Spanish conquistadors. The musical construction is eclectic, to be sure, but also logically put together, and overall, this is an exciting work that is both rigorously contemporary and fully accessible.

Radu Lupu: an Understated Genius

Radu Lupu was a poet, magician and pianist who pursued the indescribable. The Romanian artist’s musical approach was brought to life by his tormented and fiercely introverted personality, which was always shrouded in mystery. When sat at his piano, he would knead the keys like dough, seeking a powerful, consistent sound. Radu Lupu passed away on the 17th of April 2022, leaving behind a relatively small, yet incredibly valuable, discographic legacy.

Mason Bates' weird and wonderful electronic symphonies

What do you mean, you haven’t heard about Mason Bates (yet)? He is one of the hottest names on the North-American music scene. Born in 1977, Bates is a symphonic and lyrical composer as well as an electro DJ (under the alias DJ Masonic) – two completely opposing genres which he takes great delight in mixing. Around half of his symphonic and lyrical work consists, in one way or another, of electronic sounds. The majority of these sounds are “every day sounds”, which are prerecorded and later put into a score. On the release date of his brilliant opera The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, Qobuz interviewed this extraordinary person.

Koechlin, the Alchemist

Deeply rooted in both tradition and innovation, the immense work of Koechlin bewildered his contemporaries due to its many facets, its freedom and its philosophical dimension. The album finally allows us to grasp the full measure of this sound alchemist and brilliant prophet who, most probably, was born before his time… We’ll be thinking of him on November 27th, the date marking 150 years since his birth.
