These recordings featuring the lion of Baroque ensemble music, Ton Koopman, were recorded in 2010 and 2011, and some have appeared in the past. These chamber pieces by Dieterich Buxtehude remain all but unknown, and they might seem an odd choice for reissue as a complete set. Challenge Classics seems to acknowledge as much by billing Koopman as the lead artist, although he was simply the continuo player. However, the set, covering three CDs in its physical version, offers absorbing listening for anyone, not just Buxtehude fans or Baroque specialists. The music is a fascinating mix of the free fantasy typical of Buxtehude with new Italianate sonata styles. The sonatas are in the multi-sectional (as opposed to multi-movement) form of the 17th century that would soon be swept away by Corelli and his clean three- and four-movement structures, but that synchronized beautifully with the musical imagination known to those who've heard Buxtehude's organ music. Especially interesting is the first volume, played by Koopman and company from manuscripts; these sonatas are for varied instrumentation (which was probably why they remained unpublished). Koopman matches the variety in his continuo group; he plays both harpsichord and a small organ, and the continuo also includes lute and, on the first volume, violone. The use of the organ may seem odd given that in the published sonatas a cembalo -- a harpsichord -- is specified, but an advertisement also suggested that the pieces were suitable "zur Kirchen und Tafel-Music" (for church and for table music). Presumably, Koopman, one of the world's great experts on Buxtehude, knew what he was doing. Whatever the instrumentation, the collision between Buxtehude's fantastic, somewhat monumental style and the more elegant Italian music that had made its way to northern Germany is compelling indeed, and although the musical public may not have been clamoring for an album of Buxtehude's complete chamber music, it's well worth having this one on the market.

8 Great Women of Electronic

From the pioneers of musique concrete to the stars of 21st century clubbing, Qobuz is celebrating eight women who have left their own distinct marks on electronic music over the past fifty years.

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.
