Armand-Louis Couperin was a much younger cousin of François Couperin, born in 1727. By the time these harpsichord pieces were published around 1750, new musical currents were in the air, even in France, and Armand-Louis had the bad fortune to be one of the first composers killed in a traffic crash. He was all but forgotten for 200 years, but he has received attention lately from various harpsichordists. None has had quite the charisma of the great Christophe Rousset, whose attentions here may well propel this music back into the harpsichord repertory. Couperin's pieces have the same kind of descriptive titles familiar from the several preceding generations of French harpsichord music, but to portray him as a conservative hopelessly out of touch with trends in the middle 18th century is inaccurate. Listen to the second movement of the suite Les Quatres Nations, titled "L'Angloise," with its Alberti bass. There are many other broken-chord figurations uncharacteristic of the High Baroque French style or even of Rameau, and some pieces here might be taken for Domenico Scarlatti. Others might be called fusions of Scarlatti and François Couperin. This is an exciting prospect, and it is this fusion, this balance of elements, that is the genius of Rousset's playing. He loses neither the melodic element nor the brilliant ornamentation, and the result is compelling music that will be new to many listeners. One can't ask for much more than that.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.

Jonas Kaufmann in 10 Key Albums

With his flattering physique reminiscent of a handsome romantic, German Jonas Kaufmann has successfully modernised the image of opera tenors, long considered as unrepentant tumblers… Beyond his powerful and versatile voice, Jonas Kaufmann possesses an immense repertoire in several languages, masters all styles of opera, from Wagner to Verdi or Puccini, and sings the lied or the French opera to perfection. A great admirer of Fritz Wunderlich, he started his career “the old fashioned way”, in a company touring around small German theatres before taking off on his own towards a prodigious career. After a chaotic year in 2017 due to a ruptured blood vessel on his vocal chords, Jonas Kaufmann seems to have fully recovered and is working on countless new projects. Qobuz looks back on his career, highlighting 10 albums.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.
