Many will be familiar with pianist Maxence Cyrin’s style without even knowing it, as his superb cover of the Pixies’ Where Is My Mind has been played here and there and everywhere and sticks in your head all day long. Indeed, in several of his albums, Cyrin has been putting his own classical twist on popular hits, from Depeche Mode and Daft Punk to Beyoncé, bridging the gap between current music and a particular French sensitivity to sound that was also favoured by Ravel, Satie and Debussy. In 2015, Cyrin invited us into his realm of dark and deeply melancholic neoclassicism for the first time when he released an album of original compositions, Nocturnes, under the label Evidence Classics. His latest release, Aurora, released by Warner Classics, is a logical continuation. The album is captivating right from the opener Endless Poetry, and the following track Mer de velours (“Velvet Sea”) envelops your emotions entirely as your mind drifts away to the open sea. This album is mature and impresses with its outward simplicity, particularly the compelling Silk, which sounds as if it’s come straight out of a Tim Burton film. With this brilliant release, Maxence Cyrin has well and truly joined the ranks of contemporary piano music masters likes Philip Glass, next to the more spirited Max Richter, Chilly Gonzales and Yann Tiersen. That’s certainly no mean feat. © Yan Céh/Qobuz

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.

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”.

Bernard Haitink, a Prophet in his Own Land

The great Dutch conductor who died recently at the venerable age of 92 proved the old adage wrong. Recognised by his peers throughout his own country from his youth, Bernard Haitink spent most of his vast career in the Netherlands, first conducting the Dutch Radio Orchestra and then the prestigious Concertgebouw in Amsterdam for 27 years, with whom he made many legendary recordings for PHILIPS, DECCA and EMI CLASSICS, including more than 450 recordings of a wide range of composers, among which Bruckner and Mahler enjoy pride of place.
