A predecessor to Bach in Saint-Thomas in Leipzig, Johann Kuhnau was an immense character in his day: an all-around musician of course, but also an eminent polyglot—Latin, Greek, Hebrew—, writer, jurist, theoretician and mathematician. Unfortunately, the overwhelming majority of his body of work is now (or, let’s hope, for now) lost, especially his operas, a Passion, many cantatas (from which only the text remains and not the music), and several major didactic works. Damn… Let’s rejoice however that at least these few cantatas and sacred works are given to us here—of whom two are world premiere on disc—moreover, performed by the excellent ensemble Camerata Lipsiensis, while the organ sections are played on a Silbermann in its original condition from 1721, in the Saint Georg church in Rötha, Thuringia, fives leagues to the South of Leipzig. It is a small sound marvel that, it must be said, had cost a great fortune to build almost three hundred years ago, and you can hear it. As for Bach’s fans, they will discover in the course of several sections of Kuhnau some very recognizable things… the turns were probably bequeathed from a Cantor to another! The fact remains that Bach held Kunhau in high regard, and he was right to do so. © SM/Qobuz

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.

Picasso, when painting meets music

Picasso's modernist genius swiftly stretched beyond the pictorial and spread into music and dance, two art forms with which the Spanish painter always maintained a close relationship, to the point of influencing composer friends he met along the way.

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.
