The complete Bach cantata cycle by Masaaki Suzuki rolls on with some of the secular cantatas, among the composer's least-known works. This is odd for several reasons. The two cantatas recorded here were designated "drama per musica," and the secular cantatas in general are as close as we have to operas by Bach. Further, the secular cantatas are often humorous and topical in nature in a way that Bach's other music is not. No stimulus, in fact, is known for the composition of Geschwinde, Ihr wirbelnden Winde, BWV 201, better known as Der Streit zwischen Phoebus und Pan, or The Dispute Between Phoebus and Pan. The text, by Bach's frequent collaborator Picander, is a little reflection on learned (Phoebus is the advocate here) vs. lighter, more popular music (embodied by Pan), and this was surely a topic on Bach's mind with the advent of new comic styles in the 1720s; in just a few years his music would be characterized as outmoded, and his supporters would pull this piece out of the closet in retort. Bach does not play up the rustic imagery included by Picander, but even so the interpretation by Suzuki and several of his regular stable of soloists is a bit on the cool side. They actually fare a bit better in the birthday-celebration cantata Auf, schmetternde Töne der muntern Trompeten, BWV 207a, a work in which Bach made use of twice-recycled material (the Brandenburg Concerto No. 1, BWV 1046, is involved). This too is intriguing for those interested in a deep dive into Bach's parody technique, and the performances are all clean, and the texts intelligible. Recommended.

Picasso, when painting meets music

The modernist genius of Picasso quickly went beyond the pictorial frame to irradiate music and dance, two arts with which the Spanish painter has always had a close relationship, even influencing his composer friends met along the way.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.

Sofia Coppola on Air

To celebrate 20 years since the release of her film “The Virgin Suicides”, Qobuz takes a look back at some of the top musical moments from the films of Sofia Coppola, like her collaborations with French duo Air or Thomas Mars from the band Phoenix.
