While string instruments gave rise to a new repertoire of chamber music at the end of the 18th century with new forms emerging such as the quartet and its derivatives, quintets, septet or octet, the same could not be said for wind instruments since their construction was constantly changing, preventing a cohesive sound when it came to playing together. These counter-productive technical constraints caused a delay in terms of new works.
The wind quintet (flute, oboe, clarinet, horn and bassoon) gradually came to the fore in the early 19th century, sparking a new craze before enjoying its golden age in the 20th century. The young Beethoven soon became interested in wind instruments, using them in a completely new way throughout his orchestral works. His Quintet for Piano and Winds Op. 16 from 1796 is reminiscent of Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet composed twelve years earlier. He later composed an arrangement for piano and strings, but the original sounds just as good, especially thanks to Beethoven’s new way of writing for wind instruments.
The two other works on this album are arrangements, as evidenced by the Piano Concerto from 1784, where the lost accompaniment is reconstructed for wind quintet. Being fond of mechanical music, people in the 18th century invented clocks allowing music to be played automatically by complex systems. Like his elders, the young Beethoven composed specific pieces presented here as arrangements for the Ma’alot Quintet accompanied by pianist Markus Becker for the other works in this original programme. © François Hudry/Qobuz

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.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.

The Little Tramp: The Great Composer

As the Paris Philharmonic puts on a major exhibition dedicated entirely to his career, it’s the perfect opportunity to take a look back at Charlie Chaplin’s close ties with music. He may be famous as a legendary performer and director, but the man with the iconic bowler hat and cane also composed the music in his films himself.
