Rightly considered one of the greatest performers of Bruckner, Hans Knappertsbusch only left behind a single recording of the Seventh, made in Salzburg in 1949 with the Vienna Philharmonic (Orfeo). So this release, by the same publisher, is a godsend for both fans of Bruckner and admirers of this great German conductor.
In addition to its clearly outstanding sound quality, this new version, recorded at a Cologne Radio concert on 10 May 1963, packs an electric charge. The excellent Gürzenich Orchestra Cologne (which would go on to give fantastic performances of Bruckner's symphonies, conducted by Günter Ward) finds itself galvanised by a rejuvenated Knappertsbusch, who brings forth an extraordinary range of nuances, from superb flute or horn solos to devastating fortissimos, which suddenly unleash the accumulated charge. The Scherzo, which normally brings a gust of peasant joy is imagined here with a relatively moderate tempo, and it breaks like a cataclysmic storm, heralding an utterly tormented Finale. In the hands of such a composer, Bruckner's music becomes a great sensory experience, abyssal, incantatory, vertiginous: it is an experience of great depths as well as towering peaks. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 Years of Freedom

Italian violinist Fabio Biondi – famous especially for his interpretation of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons with his orchestra, Europa Galante – refuses to be compartmentalised. We take a look back at the career of a musician blessed with a supple mind and an extraordinary talent for the Baroque violin.

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”.

Bernard Haitink, a Prophet in his Own Land

The great Dutch conductor who died recently at the venerable age of 92 proved the old adage wrong. Recognised by his peers throughout his own country from his youth, Bernard Haitink spent most of his vast career in the Netherlands, first conducting the Dutch Radio Orchestra and then the prestigious Concertgebouw in Amsterdam for 27 years, with whom he made many legendary recordings for PHILIPS, DECCA and EMI CLASSICS, including more than 450 recordings of a wide range of composers, among which Bruckner and Mahler enjoy pride of place.
