It doesn't require too much imagination to hear an orchestra in your head as you listen to Beethoven's warm-hearted Septet of 1799, and indeed his First Symphony followed just the following year. Then beyond its symphonic qualities, there's its moments of delicious chamber intimacy, plus the ear-tickling novelty of its groundbreaking scoring for clarinet, horn, bassoon, violin, viola, cello and double bass. All in all, to say that it gives chamber players plenty to get their teeth into is an understatement, and perhaps especially those chamber players whose “day job” is in an orchestra – that's to say, giving musicians whose daily music making is all about the interplay between strings, brass and woodwind, a rare opportunity to take those skills into the one-to-a-part chamber domain. This live recording, made in August 2020 in the Concert Hall of KKL Lucerne (the Lucerne Festival being one of the few that managed to mount a live offering in Covid Year) certainly bears that theory out. Nimble, joyously interactive (just listen to the close duetting going on in the fourth movement variations), it delivers both on grandeur and profundity, and intimacy and humour.

Before we get to the Beethoven though, we're treated to the “Nannerl-Septett” divertimento a young Mozart wrote twenty three years earlier in Salzburg, probably in celebration of his sister's name day. While his Salzburg years are full of divertimenti written for the court's garden festivities, this is an especially ebulliently frothy one – something the Lucerne soloists bring across with naturalness and elegance over a beautifully shaped reading whose own sweet chamber delicacy is contrasted by zinging echoes of the operatic world Mozart was by this point also increasingly making his mark in.

Heard live, this concert must have represented a wonderful moment of highest-level escapism from the world's troubles. Now the rest of us can now enjoy it too, with the added benefit of being able to press “Repeat”. © Charlotte Gardner/Qobuz

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.

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.

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".
