Both as conductor and as pianist, Daniel Barenboim seems to be in fine form as he enters his ninth decade; the present release is part of a series of albums and concerts marking his 80th birthday in 2022. It is true that encores, as a rule, are not the most virtuosic of pieces, but Barenboim picks some difficult ones, like the Chopin Etude in C sharp minor, Op. 10, No. 4 ("Torrent"), and it is hard to detect any sign that he is slowing down. The album of encores is not a new idea, but Barenboim's take on the concept shows his typical seriousness of mind. With the exception of the two final pieces by Albeniz and Debussy, the program consists of short pieces from the heart of the Romantic repertory by Schubert, Schumann, Liszt, and Chopin. There isn't a bit of the lighthearted fluff or the unexpected obscurity that often serve as encores. Each one is profoundly done, displaying Barenboim's remarkable control over rubato and slight shifts in tempo and reflecting a lifetime's experience of thinking about these pieces, some of the pianist's longtime favorites. There is a strong sense of hearing these pieces anew even though they are, for the most part, extremely familiar. This album makes a fine Barenboim souvenir, and it is an illustration of why he has become a truly beloved figure.

The Earth’s Song: The World of Gustav Mahler

What could have prompted Gustav Mahler to compose a work as unclassifiable as this one? Written between 1907 and 1908, a pivotal period in Mahler's life, The Song of the Earth occupies a special place within his oeuvre. It combines the “fin de siècle” spirit with the fascination for the exotic that was spreading amongst his peers at the time. Vienna was in turmoil when this music was composed, and the piece oscillates between the notions of farewell and new beginnings. With a lot of layers to peel back, The Song of the Earth definitely merits a closer look.

Scriabin's Flamboyant Raptures

Somewhat overshadowed today by his compatriots Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky and Rachmaninov, Alexander Scriabin is nonetheless a key figure in Russian music. At the beginning of the 20th century, the composer and virtuoso pianist broke away from the Romantic legacy to offer a unique and innovative musical language which no one would follow. His work, deeply influenced by mystical philosophy and synaesthesia, would undergo a dazzling evolution in barely two decades, interrupted by his premature death at the age of 43.

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”.
