Here's one of those recordings that throws multiple unorthodox ideas at the listener; you don't think it could possibly work, but it has a unity that springs from creative intensity. French group Les Basses Réunies consists of Bruno Cocset, known as a cellist but here playing viols, plus a keyboard-and-contrabass continuo duo. The viols, in alto, tenor, and bass sizes, are "alla bastarda," a slippery term designating both an unorthodox way of playing a viol (hence the name) and eventually a new type of viol. They're copies of instruments from the seventeenth century, one of them pictured in the still life shown on the package and analyzed by art historian Dénis Grenier, an unusually direct correspondence between music and art among the releases in this series, which mostly have relied on abstract ideas. Cocset plays the three sonatas for viola da gamba and continuo, BWV 1027-1029. A seventeenth century viol brings a distinctively antique voice to these sonatas, but there are further surprises in store. Cocset embeds each sonata in a little trilogy beginning with a chorale prelude and ending with an organ trio sonata or, at the end, another chorale prelude -- all played by keyboard and viol, with or without double bass, with the viol taking over one line or one hand of the organ part. The whole project seems to take Bach's music merely as a point of departure for further creative activity, but Bach can stand up to a lot, and the music takes on a unique air of mystery and spiritual melancholy, almost as if one of the French viol masters of the late seventeenth century had somehow lived long enough to witness and react to Bach's maturity. An offbeat project even by the standards of the Alpha label, this should appeal greatly to any fan of the long tradition, running from Mozart to Wendy Carlos and beyond, of breaking Bach down and making something new of his music.

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.

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.
