Shortly after he arrived in Vienna in 1782, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart began composing his six "Haydn" Quartets, inspired by recent contact with his new friend, Franz Joseph Haydn. Not only had Haydn composed an important set of string quartets in 1781, which Mozart studied closely, he also played violin in a quartet with Mozart as violist. These influences led Mozart to compose his String Quartet No. 16 in E flat major, K. 428, and his String Quartet No. 19 in C major, K. 465, "Dissonant," which bookend the Divertimento in D major, K. 136, on this 2016 release from Alpha Classics. The Quatuor Van Kuijk, a French string quartet in spite of its Dutch name, deliver exciting and engaging performances of the string quartets, finding the right blend of flashiness and warmth that characterize Mozart's newfound maturity. Yet the youthful Divertimento is treated with comparable brilliance, if slightly less ardor, and all three works make a delightful program, showing important aspects of the development of the Classical style. The recordings are focused and detailed, though the acoustics of Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel in Waterloo create an aural halo that at times softens the Quatuor Van Kuijk's edge.

Gounod: the Romantic, the Mystic

A major artisan of the renaissance in French music in the second half of the 19th century, alongside his elder colleague Berlioz, whom he admired, and his followers Bizet, Saint-Saëns, and Massenet, who were inspired by his faith in Art, Charles Gounod (1818-1893), a mystic and a charmer, a romantic in search of a new classicism, owed his fame to a few masterpieces, which have overshadowed his daring. A flourishing discography allows us to discover the diversity of his music: instrumental, vocal, religious, and lyrical.

The Sirens Cycle, the listening-sight of Peter Eötvös

Homer, Joyce and Kafka. These are the authors of the texts that are put into music by Peter Eötvös in the The Sirens Cycle (2016). The Sirens Cycle is a string quartet with coloratura soprano, in line with the concept—the addition of the voice—of Schönberg’s Second Quartet, Alban Berg’s Lyric Suite (in his sung variant or, at least, that can be sung) and Egon Wellesz’s Sonnets by Elizabeth Barrett Browning. The album concludes with Eötvös’ first quartet, Korrespondenz, a work dating from 1992, a kind of “mini-opera” without singing, that uses the correspondence between Mozart and his father during the year 1778 as a support. Omer Corlaix reopens the debate on this work for us, after talking about it with the composer himself, specially for Qobuz! The Sirens Cycle is our October Qobuzism on the BMC label. Let yourself be transported by the music of one of the most endearing composers of our time.
