All but forgotten are the name and music of performer and composer Bernhard Molique. In his lifetime (1802-1869), he was active as a gifted violin virtuoso and pedagogue, though many of his contemporaries were either ardent admirers or fervent critics. His rather extensive catalog of compositions, ranging from small chamber works to a symphony, is perhaps even less remembered today than his contributions as a violinist. This CPO album presents the third volume of the composer's string quartets, which may number as high as 13, though the exact quantity is unknown. Performed by the Mannheim String Quartet, this volume programs the First and Second quartets, two highly contrasting compositions to be sure. The first, in G major, is a classically rooted work that is decidedly unmemorable. Already by his Second Quartet, however, Molique developed a much more interesting voice. This time in C minor, Molique makes much more use of counterpoint, particularly in the quartet's outer movements. The inner movements, particularly the rather long Andante, are not as gripping or engaging as those of many of Molique's contemporaries, but his early quartets are still worth hearing for those interested in expanding their repertoire from this era. The Mannheim Quartet's performances are technically polished and as musically interesting as could be hoped for.

In your panoramas...
Koechlin, the Alchemist

Deeply rooted in both tradition and innovation, the immense work of Koechlin bewildered his contemporaries due to its many facets, its freedom and its philosophical dimension. The album finally allows us to grasp the full measure of this sound alchemist and brilliant prophet who, most probably, was born before his time… We’ll be thinking of him on November 27th, the date marking 150 years since his birth.

The Earth’s Song: The World of Gustav Mahler

What could have prompted Gustav Mahler to compose a work as unclassifiable as this one? Written between 1907 and 1908, a pivotal period in Mahler's life, The Song of the Earth occupies a special place within his oeuvre. It combines the “fin de siècle” spirit with the fascination for the exotic that was spreading amongst his peers at the time. Vienna was in turmoil when this music was composed, and the piece oscillates between the notions of farewell and new beginnings. With a lot of layers to peel back, The Song of the Earth definitely merits a closer look.

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".
