At only 26 years of age, Jan Lisiecki already boasts an astonishingly extensive and prolific discography. So it should come as no surprise that he is releasing his eighth Deutsche Grammophon album, just one year after his last set of recordings. With Chopin's Nocturnes, the Canadian pianist returns to his beginnings as a piano player, back to simplicity.


The recent lockdown period has allowed many artists to flourish in the studio, and Jan Lisiecki is among them. Recording his album last autumn in Berlin's famed Meistersaal, the pianist described how the social standstill has given him a new understanding of time, work and his relationship with music: "They were the most pleasant and relaxed recording sessions I've ever experienced; they were perfect for the Nocturnes. I was able to engage with each piece at my own pace and live with them all in a way that felt completely natural and organic."

From an early age, Lisiecki found himself intrigued by the Polish composer’s work in a special way. It was the Nocturnes - especially Op.9 No.1 - that first sparked his connection with Chopin, and they remain significant to him to this day. Over 21 pieces, written by the composer between 1829 and 1847, the Canadian takes us into a world of emotions, timbres and those enchanted melodic-cantabile phrases so typical of Chopin, underpinned by rich harmonization. The genre was relatively new at the time, dedicated to the evening and the night and allowing each performer to evolve their personal emotions and creative freedom, something to which Lisiecki completely surrenders. Extremely simple, soulful and astonishingly slow, the individual nocturnes glide along the keys, almost as if the pianist were too modest to show his virtuosity, but entirely in the spirit of Chopin, who once said himself about music: "Simplicity is the final achievement." © Lena Germann/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.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.
