Frankfurt, Easter Sunday, 1830. On this holy day, the violin virtuoso Niccolò Paganini gave a recital of his 24 Caprices, Op. 1 to an enthusiastic audience: "How brilliantly and ineffably he captured the audience in his nets, which he wafted back and forth," wrote one of the spectators present that day. That spectator was Robert Schumann.

Enchanted by Paganini’s genius, he set about a literal transcription for piano of the Caprices Nos. 59111316 and 19 first published in 1832 as 6 Etudes sur des Caprices de Paganini, Op. 3. This was followed in 1832 by the 6 Concert Etudes, this time from Caprices Nos. 1261042 and 3. In contrast to the first cycle of 1830, the Concert Etudes, Op. 10 are a freer adaptation, reflecting Schumann's growing familiarity with the violinist's musical language.

A close friend of Robert and Clara Schumann, Johannes Brahms, wrote his twenty-eight Variations on a Theme by Paganini, based on the twenty-fourth Caprice, thirty years later in 1862. Clara nicknamed these two notebooks the "Witch's Variations", as they were so tricky to play.

It took the technical virtuosity of Joseph Moog to overcome the complexity of these re-imaginings of Paganini's work. The sound recording, which reproduces the acoustics of a concert hall, prolongs the listening experience and makes us really feel the fascination that these very difficult works can exert in the hands of those artists who, like Moog, have been able to perform them. © Pierre Lamy/Qobuz

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”.

Steve Reich in 10 Works

Steve Reich belongs to that very small circle of composers who can claim to have changed the face of contemporary music over the last fifty years. Qobuz presents a selection of ten of the most important works from his catalogue.

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.
