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

Scriabin's Flamboyant Raptures

Somewhat overshadowed today by his compatriots Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky and Rachmaninov, Alexander Scriabin is nonetheless a key figure in Russian music. At the beginning of the 20th century, the composer and virtuoso pianist broke away from the Romantic legacy to offer a unique and innovative musical language which no one would follow. His work, deeply influenced by mystical philosophy and synaesthesia, would undergo a dazzling evolution in barely two decades, interrupted by his premature death at the age of 43.

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”.

Nils Frahm, an Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.
