This is the first in a series of Antonín Dvorák's string quartets from the formerly East German Vogler Quartet, a group that has maintained its original membership since the mid-'80s and has made some fine recordings for the Profil label. Moving over to the acoustically somewhat less accomplished CPO, it performs a valuable service by delving into the lesser-known chamber music of Dvorák, a composer with a large worthwhile output that is mostly disregarded in favor of a few favorites. Not that the quartet couldn't have succeeded by sticking to those favorites; the String Quartet No. 12 in F major, Op. 96 ("American"), in the Vogler's hands can stand with any other version on the market. The Vogler favors rather sober, involved readings in a long Central European tradition, but here it loosens up with the tempo for a very stirring finale. The group emphasizes the degree to which pentatonic scales permeate the thematic material of the quartet. Less often heard are the Zypressen (Cypresses), B. 152, which exist both as songs and string quartet movements; the string quartet version here dates from 1887, and they are so evocative that they might as well have the song texts. These are underappreciated works -- unusually complex as songs -- in which Dvorák worked out some of the larger issues of his unerringly crowd-pleasing late style, and the Vogler delivers very tuneful, appealing performances. The two earlier quartets on disc two, both from the late 1870s, represent the poles of Dvorák's style during the period; the former is strongly Slavic in style, the latter a very careful essay in the style of Brahms whose contrapuntal density plays right up the middle of the Vogler Quartet's strengths. The sound, from Berlin's Siemensvilla studio, is actually perfectly clear, and this is a very strong double album that will give those of Dvorák plenty of pleasurable listening.

Jordi Savall: Music, life and recording

It was a rainy October night in the Bugey. On October nights, it's always raining in the Bugey. It was around midnight. There were fifty of us, waiting in the cold, the wet and the rapt silence at the Ambronay Festival. All of a sudden, and without a sound, Jordi Savall was there, sopping wet in a white raincoat, like Bogart in Casablanca, holding onto a hard case shaped like a human body. Moving slowly, he drew out not a person but a viola de gamba, which he started tuning and stringing with the greatest care. And then the miracle descended upon the auditorium.

François Couperin, the modern harpsichord

A favourite of Louis XIV, François Couperin (1668-1733) was the harpsichord superstar of the 18th century. At the time, the harpsichord was a prestigious instrument which was at the height of its fame (although it would return to obscurity in the following century), and Couperin revolutionised the way it was played, breaking a path that would later be trod by other virtuosos of the period like Dandrieu or Rameau. The Quebecois harpsichordist Olivier Fortin tells Qobuz the story of "Couperin the Great".

Mason Bates' weird and wonderful electronic symphonies

What do you mean, you haven’t heard about Mason Bates (yet)? He is one of the hottest names on the North-American music scene. Born in 1977, Bates is a symphonic and lyrical composer as well as an electro DJ (under the alias DJ Masonic) – two completely opposing genres which he takes great delight in mixing. Around half of his symphonic and lyrical work consists, in one way or another, of electronic sounds. The majority of these sounds are “every day sounds”, which are prerecorded and later put into a score. On the release date of his brilliant opera The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, Qobuz interviewed this extraordinary person.
