Simply magical. This release, beautifully recorded at the Villa Siemens in Berlin, initiates a complete set of Beethoven’s Violin and Piano Sonatas on BIS Records by two of the most extraordinary chamber musicians. Two musicians, of such sharp and intense refinement, violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann and pianist Martin Helmchen. It’s surprising to find these two artists on a label that isn't the home of their solo projects; Helmchen records for Alpha, and Zimmermann for Ondine. BIS, which is actually the label of Zimmermann’s brilliant trio, have recovered the Holy Grail, as the two musicians are in perfect musical harmony! Everything seems smooth, supple, the musical dialogue incomparably elegant, balanced and fitting. It was only after a few recitals that the first recording sessions took place in September 2019: the miracles that occur in concert seem to grace the recording sessions. If in doubt, start with the Third Sonata. © Pierre-Yves Lascar/Qobuz

In your panoramas...
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".

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.
