Japanese-born violinist Midori emerged as a sensational child prodigy, making her New York Philharmonic debut at the staggering age of ten. She was quickly taken under the wing of conductor Zubin Mehta and began her recording career began. Unlike so many child prodigies whose rapid ascension to fame often results in just as rapid of a burnout, Midori has retained her standing as a respected and sought-after artist and humanitarian. Her early recordings clearly demonstrate her almost unbelievable technical prowess while her later albums have shown that she has built upon the solid technical foundations to include sincere, satisfying musical understanding as well. This Newton Classics album stems from early in Midori's career -- 1987 -- with recordings of the Paganini First Violin Concerto and Tchaikovsky's Sérénade mélancolique, Op. 26, and Valse-scherzo, Op. 34. While her playing at this young age is far from cold, it is definitely more rigid and less fluid than her adult contributions. The pyrotechnics in the Paganini concerto are certainly the highlight of the album as Midori effortlessly tosses them off as though she's playing nothing more than a scale. The two Tchaikovsky works offer fewer opportunities to show off technical abilities and as such are slightly less dazzling than the Paganini. Fans of this exceptional artist will, however, find merit in this album as a testament to the increase in musical introspection that has come to Midori with age.

8 Great Women of Electronic

From the pioneers of musique concrete to the stars of 21st century clubbing, Qobuz is celebrating eight women who have left their own distinct marks on electronic music over the past fifty years.

Marc Ribot, the Anti-guitar Hero

For over thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.

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”.
