‘When we approach a composer, we like to immerse ourselves in his or her early works, in order to understand the evolution of the person behind the score.
‘It was quite naturally that the idea emerged of coupling a youthful quartet, no.10, composed at the age of sixteen, with a masterpiece by the mature Schubert, the “Death and the Maiden” Quartet no.14. As in the case of Mozart on our first recording, we wanted to present two different atmospheres with two quartets by the same composer.
‘This journey through time sheds a new light on the later works, because the process of getting to know the young Franz Schubert naturally means deepening our knowledge of his language, but also allows us to refine our appropriation of the style, sound and articulation specific to him. ‘In Quartet no.10, we tried to achieve purity in our playing, a crystalline sound that allows the music to unfold in the most fluid and natural way, keeping in mind the intimacy of the family living room for which these pages were written.
‘In no.14, more tormented, brusquer, more intense, we attempt to pay homage to the work’s symphonic dimension, and to its most sombre, most violent asperities. ‘Two sides to one man: the bright and dark faces of Schubert.’

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.
