Album Description

For a long time, the scores of Beethoven’s nine symphonies have been carefully studied by both conductors and musicologists alike. Combined, they have published “original editions” to correct the faulty editions which had arisen in the past from both the negligence of the first editors and general misinterpretation, due to indecipherable manuscripts.


In 1982, conductor Igor Markevitch had published a rigorous and well-documented edition alongside a team of experienced musicologists. In 1998, Norman Del Mar decided to conduct a new edition with Bärenreiter. This new work was immediately recorded by David Zinman with the Tonhalle Orchestra of Zurich. Though, sadly, it went almost unnoticed next to the “historically informed” versions which were popular at the time.


It’s now time for Yannick Nézet-Seguin's take released with Deutsche Grammophon, a complete recording based on a brand-new critical edition, namely: “The New Beethoven Complete Edition”. In this, we find minor details of articulation and expression. The crucial aspect of this new recording, made over four concerts in July 2021 with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, is the position of a young, gifted conductor who has perfectly assimilated to the playing styles that were rediscovered by his elders. Notably, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, whose complete works with the same orchestra caused a sensation upon their release in 1990 (Teldec).


The young Canadian, unlike Harnoncourt, Brüggen and Norrington, is far less radical. Yannick seeks—above all—to emphasise “the way Beethoven’s music can surprise us today.” His tempos are often brisk and his articulations salient, and his modest approach has resulted in music that’s thoroughly unpretentious. This playful, energetic and humble approach makes Beethoven’s music sound as topical as ever and employs a classicism which leaves no room for eccentricity. © François Hudry/Qobuz

10 Versions of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique

As a proper manifesto of French romanticism, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique marked the 19th century as much as Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring impacted the 20th. Composed in Paris − which at the time was a global crucible for artistic creation − these two masterpieces catapulted musical language into another dimension. On December 5th, 1830 the revolutionary work of 27-year-old Hector Berlioz deeply moved the musicians present in the small room of the old academy of music, among whom were Meyerbeer and Liszt, who were impressed by the extraordinary audacity of this piece presented just three years after Beethoven’s death.

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”.
