For the benefit of those listeners who think that one harpsichord is pretty much like another, and that they all sound the same, we strongly recommend this album from Marouan Mankar-Bennis – a follower of Olivier Beaumont, Bob van Asperen and Pierre Hantaï, and who is now performing with Vincent Dumestre and his Poème Harmonique, amongst many other projects – which is dedicated to Jean-François Dandrieu (1682 - 1738). This is an imaginary suite, concocted by Mankar-Bennis and based on the four Livres for harpsichord, respectively published in 1705 ("Livre de jeunesse"), 1724 ("Premier livre"), 1728 and 1734, whose individual movements he has arranged into a great fresco, in the manner of a lyrical tragedy à la Lully: aPrologue of five pieces form a suite, and then five acts, each considered like a suite in its own right. The richness of the instruments here is extraordinary – they were picked out personally by Mankar-Bennis, of course – a copy of a Flemish harpsichord from the 17th century made by Joannes Couche, and a copy of a French instrument from the mid-18th century. By playing with the registers and the lute stops (the entire Prologue is played on the lute stops, although a listener would hardly expect that that's the only string to that particular bow), he draws out an incredible richness from his instruments, running from cannon blasts on Caractères de la guerre played "with the flat of the hand" as per Dandrieu's instructions (an ancestor to the cluster, then), to the songbird chirruping of the harpsichord's upper range on Le Concert des oiseaux, a foretaste of Messiaen if ever there was one. This is one for anyone not yet sold on the harpsichord...© SM/Qobuz

Wilhelm Kempff: The Most Human of Pianists

An artist of another time, Wilhelm Kempff (1895-1991) believed in inspiration: he took on music as if it were a religion, with a respectful enthusiasm for the masters that came before him. With his velvet touch, sense of phrasing and storytelling quality, Wilhelm Kepff’s art was like that of a waking dream. Half poet, half divine, during a time when expression of emotion triumphed all. He recorded many times the works of his favourite composers, in particular his ‘god’ Beethoven, for whom Kempff is well known and left behind three complete sonatas in keeping with his own maturation and the evolution of his recording technique.

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.
