Shrouded in an awkward acoustic which is hardly customary for Berlin's Teldex Studio, the latest recording by Matthias Goerne and Korean pianist Seong-Jin Cho (First Prize in the 2015 Chopin Competition) is devoted to twilight Lieder by Wagner, Pfitzner and Richard Strauss.

Twilight ("Abendrot" in German), an essential component of German Romanticism, expresses the deep, dark side of the human soul, often in a tragic or dramatic tone, barely tempered by an oppressive light that prematurely withers the flowers of memory.

The famous Wesendonck-Lieder, for which Wagner was inspired by an impossible love whose harmonies foreshadow those of Tristan and Isolde, find in Matthias Goerne's deep voice a performer to equal their inspiration. The German baritone has long been a supporter of the music of Hanz Pfitzner, a contemporary of Richard Strauss who is often rather academic for Latin ears. What a pleasure to discover this bouquet of Lieder, which evoke the ever-renewed miracle of nature, and in which seasons and landscapes are robed in strong nostalgia.

Richard Strauss follows through the metaphors of the sun: darkening (Traum durch die Dämmerung), promising great future joys (Morgen) or eternal rest (Ruhe, meine Seele!); dreams of peace and beauty (Freundliche Vision) and the weariness of a fading life (Im Abendrot). This album reflects the black diamond of melancholy, and its three composers complement each other delightfully. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Steve Reich in 10 Works

Steve Reich belongs to that very small circle of composers who can claim to have changed the face of contemporary music over the last fifty years. Qobuz presents a selection of ten of the most important works from his catalogue.

Undervalued: a Look Back on Female Composers

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho and Clara Schumann, several women have managed to break through the macho codes of the milieu and become composers. While the classical music landscape has been largely dominated by men in recent centuries, the work of their female colleagues, whether pioneers or contemporaries, is just as fascinating. Here we put eleven undervalued figures of female composition in the spotlight.

Esa-Pekka Salonen is an acclaimed finnish conductor and prolific composer. With over 60 albums under his belt, he has heavily contributed to the history of musical interpretation. This is an interview with an exceptional musician, who discusses his unique approach to working on classical music in the studio.
