Laurent de Saint-Luc was born in 1669 into a family of musicians. The reputation of his father, Jacques de Saint-Luc, had gone beyond the borders of the Spanish Netherlands: he was known all the way to Paris – where, in 1647, he performed as a theorbist at the Chapelle Royale. While Saint-Luc's father was attached to the Chapelle Royale in Brussels from 1639 to 1683, Laurent never appeared among the court musicians. Perhaps we can deduce from this that from 1691, the son was no longer in the southern Low Countries. In addition to no position at the court being forthcoming, the political situation could have led him to leave Brussels, as the League of Augsburg had turned the region into a battlefield - in 1695, a bombardment destroyed two thirds of Brussels. Although France was an enemy, Saint-Luc made for Paris and stayed there a while, and several pieces seem to confirm his presence there in this period: L’Arioste moderne refers to a work by Mme Gillot de Beaucour dating from 1685; La Belle au bois dormant to Perrault's 1696 fairytale. It was in Amsterdam that his Suites pour le luth avec un dessus et une basse ad libitum, appeared, the Livre premier in 1709, and the Livre second in 1710, but we have nothing which allows us to confidently pinpoint the composer's whereabouts at those dates. The latest historical event to which his compositions refer (they are often very descriptive: The Defeat of the French by the Germans Before Turin, The Taking of Barcelona, etc.) is the taking of Lille, in October 1708. And after that... a mystery. Thereafter, the composer generally sticks to traditional forms, but which he can still renew, not just prefacing his allemandes with unexpected preludes, but even giving them overtures or a march, while substituting for sarabande and gigue with pieces like Pour endormir l’enfant or Pastorelle. A shiny and new ancient composer, then, and the silvery lutist Evangelina Mascardi gives an intense and tender reading. © SM/Qobuz

François Couperin, the modern harpsichord

A favourite of Louis XIV, François Couperin (1668-1733) was the harpsichord superstar of the 18th century. At the time, the harpsichord was a prestigious instrument which was at the height of its fame (although it would return to obscurity in the following century), and Couperin revolutionised the way it was played, breaking a path that would later be trod by other virtuosos of the period like Dandrieu or Rameau. The Quebecois harpsichordist Olivier Fortin tells Qobuz the story of "Couperin the Great".

Jordi Savall: Music, life and recording

It was a rainy October night in the Bugey. On October nights, it's always raining in the Bugey. It was around midnight. There were fifty of us, waiting in the cold, the wet and the rapt silence at the Ambronay Festival. All of a sudden, and without a sound, Jordi Savall was there, sopping wet in a white raincoat, like Bogart in Casablanca, holding onto a hard case shaped like a human body. Moving slowly, he drew out not a person but a viola de gamba, which he started tuning and stringing with the greatest care. And then the miracle descended upon the auditorium.

Mason Bates' weird and wonderful electronic symphonies

What do you mean, you haven’t heard about Mason Bates (yet)? He is one of the hottest names on the North-American music scene. Born in 1977, Bates is a symphonic and lyrical composer as well as an electro DJ (under the alias DJ Masonic) – two completely opposing genres which he takes great delight in mixing. Around half of his symphonic and lyrical work consists, in one way or another, of electronic sounds. The majority of these sounds are “every day sounds”, which are prerecorded and later put into a score. On the release date of his brilliant opera The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, Qobuz interviewed this extraordinary person.
