Founded in 2017, Mercury KX (MKX) is a beautiful label, hosting a whole generation of unique musicians who have been called "neo-classical" or "post-classical." Often these are classically trained virtuosos who have decided to turn their hand to composing in the field of minimalist music, or electronic music—ambient preferably—or even pop. This is a label without borders, hosting artists from Germany, Argentina, Australia, Iceland, England and elsewhere, in which we meet Ólafur Arnalds, Anoushka Shankar, Jean-Michel Blais and Isobel Waller-Bridge. Often instrumental, MKX's music invites us to travel: it evokes images and landscapes. And its artists seem to be in constant conversation with the world around them and nature, as perfectly illustrated by MKX x SXSW, four previously unreleased tracks livestreamed during the (virtual) 2021 edition of the SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas. This EP features Argentine pianist and cellist Sebastian Plano ("Purples"), the Australian pianist Sophie Hutchings ("Surrender to the Deepest Blue"), the masked German pianist Lambert ("Niort") and Australian pianist Luke Howard ("Passion / Sleep"). A certain form of melancholy mixed with cinematic sensations binds these spartan pieces together. All in all, it's a beautiful snapshot of the planet Mercury KX. © Max Dembo/Qobuz

Steve Reich in 10 Works

Steve Reich belongs to that very small circle of composers who can claim to have changed the face of contemporary music over the last fifty years. Qobuz presents a selection of ten of the most important works from his catalogue.

The Paradox of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Studio

Esa-Pekka Salonen is an acclaimed finnish conductor and prolific composer. With over 60 albums under his belt, he has heavily contributed to the history of musical interpretation. This is an interview with an exceptional musician, who discusses his unique approach to working on classical music in the studio.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.
