Early seventeenth century Italy was essentially a Catholic police state and nothing that had anything to do with the Church was left unsupervised. After the Sack of Rome and the Reformation, in Milan as elsewhere in Italy, music was directed to be simple, solemn, and sublime in that order. In response, as this splendid disc by Le Poème Harmonique directed by Vincent Dumestre demonstrates, the composers of Milan dissimulated. Vincenzo Ruffo, maestro di cappella of the Duomo, dropped his elegantly ornate madrigal style and wrote the austerely beautiful Missa Quarti Toni but imbued with the same sense of luminous joy. The Archbishop of Milan told Aquilino Coppini to provide contrafacta -- new words for pre-composed music -- for the glory of the God and Coppini turned in sanctified versions of Monteverdi's erotic madrigals but with the same sense of rapturous ecstasy. The Cardinal from Rome ordered that only fauxbourdon -- "false bass" or two-part harmony -- was to be sung in church and musicians evolved the fauxbourdon into richly ornamented but absolutely lucid and with the same sense of the transcendent bliss. As these sumptuously executed and passionately dedicated performances prove, even the Church could not eliminate spirituality from church music. Alpha's sound, notes, and graphics are, as always, executed at the highest possible level.

Nelson Freire, a Humble Virtuoso

A child prodigy in his native country, the Brazilian pianist who passed away in November 2021 kept his distance from the noisy fanfare of fame. His enormous hands and his natural and virtuoso technique always assisted his full, powerful and mellow sound. Here Qobuz looks back at the career of a musician that for a long time was the “best-kept secret in the world of the piano”.

Undervalued: a Look Back on Female Composers

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho and Clara Schumann, several women have managed to break through the macho codes of the milieu and become composers. While the classical music landscape has been largely dominated by men in recent centuries, the work of their female colleagues, whether pioneers or contemporaries, is just as fascinating. Here we put eleven undervalued figures of female composition in the spotlight.

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.
