Nowadays everyone knows (or should know) Martinů’s symphonies, as well as some of his brilliant symphonic poems such as The Frescoes of Piero della Francesca, but most of the orchestral works from his first maturity – recorded here in several volumes – remain largely ignored. With these volumes, you’ll hear how in 1915-1920, Martinů already wrote prime Martinů-esque works, in such a distinctive style – even though the orchestra can be reminiscent of Josef Suk, Debussy and Strauss, or even Rachmaninoff’s Isle of the Dead. In fact, just like Rachmaninoff’s work, the ballad Villa by the Sea (Vol. 3) is clearly evocative of a – very similar – Böcklin painting! Please note this is a discographic first (yes this can still be a thing for Martinů! As unlikely as it sounds), same for the eerie Míjející půlnoc (“Vanishing Midnight”, Vol. 3), a brilliant orchestral feat. The Shadow (Vol. 2), a ballet from 1916, at times features baroque idioms – it is indeed said that Martinů often drew inspiration from his predecessors, always with incredible musical originality. All in all, a must for the fans of a composer who, as it seems, still holds quite a few tricks up his sleeve. © SM/Qobuz

Beethoven: Fidelio's Big Adventure

Based on a story from France during the Revolutionary Terror (the story of an intrepid young woman who disguised herself as a man to save her husband from the dungeon), Beethoven's unique opera has had a turbulent life, and has been reworked here and there over the years. New proof of the German composer's musical genius, Fidelio also permitted him to write a musical setting for a libretto that matched his political beliefs.

Wilhelm Kempff: The Most Human of Pianists

An artist of another time, Wilhelm Kempff (1895-1991) believed in inspiration: he took on music as if it were a religion, with a respectful enthusiasm for the masters that came before him. With his velvet touch, sense of phrasing and storytelling quality, Wilhelm Kepff’s art was like that of a waking dream. Half poet, half divine, during a time when expression of emotion triumphed all. He recorded many times the works of his favourite composers, in particular his ‘god’ Beethoven, for whom Kempff is well known and left behind three complete sonatas in keeping with his own maturation and the evolution of his recording technique.

Julius Katchen: 50 Shades of Brahms

It may seem like every pianist alive today has tried their hand at Brahms - especially his last opuses from 116 to 119. But this hasn’t always been the case. Having started recording Brahms for Decca Records in 1962, the American pianist Julius Katchen was the first to complete the German composer’s entire piano works. Ten years later, the German pianist Peter Rösel followed in his footsteps, as well as a dozen or so others more recently.
