Conductor Christina Pluhar and her ensemble L'Arpeggiata have made several recordings in which the improvisational bases of jazz and Baroque music are brought together. The ideas go back as far as the Modern Jazz Quartet's recordings of the 1950s, and Pluhar, on solid ground, has attracted plenty of critical attention and strong sales. Handel Goes Wild, as the title suggests, goes farther into the unknown. Pluhar asserts that the title refers to Handel's choleric personality, but it is also she who goes wild; the album's subtitle is "Improvisations on G.F. Handel," but it might be more accurate to say that Handel serves here as raw melodic material for further creative activity. Soprano Núria Rial and countertenor Valer Sabadus roll with whatever L'Arpeggiata throws at them, and there's nothing dull about the proceedings at all: the playing is not like the MJQ's, with its regular jazz rhythms substituted for Baroque pulses, but instead shifts freely between pieces and within a single aria. There is jazz, but there are also other styles of various kinds, and there is also straight Handel. Obviously, your mileage may vary here: you can sample Venti, turbini from Rinaldo, to hear what you're getting into. Whatever your personal verdict, the members of L'Arpeggiata are not dilettantes fooling with Handel; they know their stuff.

Marc Ribot, the Anti-guitar Hero

For over thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.

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”.

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.
