Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach was admired and often cited as an example by Haydyn, Mozart and Beethoven, but just like these three musicians he too struggled to find an audience for his music. As one of Johann Sebastian’s sons, he was a custodian of his father’s rather daunting legacy.

The composer dates back to the beginning of the classical area but his music already seemed to show hints of romanticism. The very essence of his music and his originality has been considered as a “theatre of the soul” (Gilles Cantagrel) – the emotional staging of the music interspersed with surprises and sudden modulations, fiercely dynamic oppositions and silences sometimes heavy with anguish. Like all the artists of his time, Carl Philipp was a prolific composer and wrote nearly fifty concertos for the harpsichord, which was his favourite instrument, along with the clavichord on which he took great pleasure in improvising for hours at a time.

Christian Zacharias is familiar with the composer and has already devoted several recordings to his work. For this concert in November 2019 with the Auvergne National Orchestra, who he conducts from behind his own instrument, he selected the Concerto in D minor, Wq. 23, H. 427. It is a piece which illustrates the innovativeness of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s style perfectly, particularly in the Poco Andante, whose expressive effusion prefigures Mozart’s greatest concertos. The extraordinary Rondo in C minor with its harmonic instability is featured as an encore and takes us to right to the edge of the abyss before leaving us there with its question-like inconclusive ending. A musical style that seemingly initiates and embodies the “Age of Sensibility” to which Hadyn and Mozart later greatly contributed. © François Hudry/Qobuz

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.

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.
