Little by little, Francesco Corti begins to stand out with his colourful personality. In some respects, he reminds us of Ottavio Dantone and his vivid, overflowing imagination. Here, the masterful blend of rigour and fantasy is striking. And what a copious program – over 80 minutes long!
The Praeludium BWV 815a is the ideal entry point before a French Suite in E Flat major (No. 4) by J. S. Bach (here the 1722 version, which never appears constrained by its structure). Have we ever heard such natural polyphony, beautifully deployed harmonies and rhythmic diversity? In fact we have, with pianist Tatiana Nikolayeva in a 1987 concert in Salzburg (Orfeo).
Then come the (re)discoveries. If Leonhardt had once shown (Teldec) the beauty of Kuhnau's biblical sonatas, Francesco Corti gives Il lamento di Hiskia an unexpected depth. It takes on a truly transitional form between the French Tombeaux and the denser recitatives of Bach's Passions, whereas L'allegrezza del Re directly evokes France. After a short and unremarkable Hasse passage, Francesco Corti throws himself into Praeludium, Fugue & Postludium in G minor by Georg Böhm, which is perhaps even more poetic than its twin, Praeludium, Fugue et Allegro in E flat major by J. S. Bach (BWV 998) which the harpsichordist performs in an unrushed and improvisational manner, a performance style which can also be found in Capriccio Sopra’s overture lontananza del fratello dilettissimo BWV 992.
Ken Yoshida captures a wonderful recording of the sublime Andrea Restelli harpsichord which is modelled on a 1738 Christian Valer preserved at Nuremberg, played by one of the most intense artists on the young Baroque scene. Discover this recital in all its glory, it is certainly worth the listen. © Pierre-Yves Lascar/Qobuz

François Couperin, the modern harpsichord

A favourite of Louis XIV, François Couperin (1668-1733) was the harpsichord superstar of the 18th century. At the time, the harpsichord was a prestigious instrument which was at the height of its fame (although it would return to obscurity in the following century), and Couperin revolutionised the way it was played, breaking a path that would later be trod by other virtuosos of the period like Dandrieu or Rameau. The Quebecois harpsichordist Olivier Fortin tells Qobuz the story of "Couperin the Great".

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.

Jordi Savall: Music, life and recording

It was a rainy October night in the Bugey. On October nights, it's always raining in the Bugey. It was around midnight. There were fifty of us, waiting in the cold, the wet and the rapt silence at the Ambronay Festival. All of a sudden, and without a sound, Jordi Savall was there, sopping wet in a white raincoat, like Bogart in Casablanca, holding onto a hard case shaped like a human body. Moving slowly, he drew out not a person but a viola de gamba, which he started tuning and stringing with the greatest care. And then the miracle descended upon the auditorium.
