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

Strauss & Kempe: Elective Affinities

The name of conductor Rudolf Kempe (1910-1976) is indissociable from those of composer Richard Strauss and the Dresden Staatskapelle orchestra. As Warner is now re-releasing the recordings made between 1970 and 1975, Qobuz is putting the spotlight on the Straussian legacy of a precise, often incisive conductor, who always paid the greatest attention to the text and its charms.

Tim Burton in 10 Albums

Through feature-length and animated films, Tim Burton has created a fascinating world of cinema over the last thirty years where poetic wonders meet gothic aesthetic and macabre humor. With few exceptions, he worked on most of his films with a specific composer, Danny Elfman. Without Burton’s images, Elfman’s music would not feel the same, and vice-versa. In 2019, the two artists proved this one more time with their last collaboration: the deeply moving "Dumbo".
