Armenian composer Aram Khachaturian’s Violin Concerto in D minor is a colored and sensual piece. Full of eastern influences and harmonies, it was first composed for David Oistrakh who performed it in 1940. Since then, the piece has traveled all over the world, and has become almost as famous as Khachaturian’s signature composition, “Saber Dance”. Appealing and exuberant, Khachaturian’s concerto is peppered with folk melodies. The violinist Antje Weithaas, plays it, in a truly romantic tradition, with passion and melancholy. Also included in the record is Khachaturian’s Concert-Rhapsody, a piece written in 1961 for Leonid Kogan, and a distant cousin to Maurice Ravel’s Tzigane. When first performed, Concert-Rhapsody glorified its dedicatee’s virtuosity. Antje Weithaas’s rendition goes well beyond its first intention, making it an inspiring universal piece of work. © François Hudry/Qobuz

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.

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.

The Little Tramp: The Great Composer

As the Paris Philharmonic puts on a major exhibition dedicated entirely to his career, it’s the perfect opportunity to take a look back at Charlie Chaplin’s close ties with music. He may be famous as a legendary performer and director, but the man with the iconic bowler hat and cane also composed the music in his films himself.
