The Four Impromptus, D.899, Op.90 and the Moments Musicaux, D.780, Op.94 are essential pieces in Franz Schubert's abundant piano output. There are no rarities or forgotten nuggets in Alexandre Tharaud's new recording on Erato, but rather a return to the roots of what characterises the music of the Viennese composer: lightness and spontaneity. The titles "Impromptus" and "Moments Musicaux" do not deceive the ear: Schubert knew better than any of his contemporaries how to seize the fleetingness of a moment and how to capture it in short pieces with a partially improvised feel. It was perhaps Robert Schumann who best described the music of his eldest son: "What is for everyone the diary in which one writes down one's fleeting feelings and other thoughts, was for Schubert the sheet of music paper.


In addition to this programme, is a transcription for solo piano of the incidental music Rosamunde, Op. 26, D 797, written to accompany Helmina von Chézy's play Rosamunde, Princess of Cyprus. The dramatic work is now forgotten but the score remains famous. Tharaud shows a fine understanding of the original work, his transcription elegantly restoring the different sound planes of the orchestra. © Pierre Lamy/Qobuz

Glenn Gould, Extravaganza

How can I describe – let alone define – this truly one-of-a-kind pianist? As an alien, perhaps. An alien who whisks us away at supersonic speed before slowing down to land on an infinite world where there is time for everything. It is the acceptance and cultivation of his otherness (or his alienness?) that has made this unconventional pianist one of the greatest and most loved (and criticised) musicians ever.

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”.
