Quatuor Modigliani offers a complete survey of the string quartets of Franz Schubert. Though all of these works have been recorded and performed with varying degrees of regularity, the composer's late, mature quartets are much more popular in recordings and on the concert stage. Written when he was a teenager, Schubert's early quartets are influenced understandably by the music of the Classical period, especially Mozart and Haydn, to be performed by family members and schoolmates. The development of Schubert as a composer is heard throughout his quartets, even between the relatively short period from his first (1810) to tenth (1813), but especially apparent is the composer's growth during his hiatus from writing for string quartet. He set aside the form after completing his eleventh quartet in 1816 until another attempt was made in 1820. The resulting Quartettsatz was left unfinished, and even though it is only a single movement work, it was published as his twelfth quartet; the Quartettsatz arguably coincides with the beginning of his mature period. Following a period of severe illness, Schubert returned to the string quartet medium again in 1824 with the Rosamunde Quartet, named thus because it recalls a theme from the composer's incidental music for the play Rosamunde, Fürstin von Zypern. The Quatuor Modigliani delivers precise readings throughout and have developed a wonderful ensemble sound. With powerful dynamic contrast, the group navigates the stylistic changes that occurred during the prolific, tragically short life of this remarkable composer. Instead of presenting these works in chronological order, Quatuor Modigliani divides them into five different themed groups, one for each disc, such as "Harmony" and "The Art of Song." The reasoning behind these groupings is detailed in the booklet for physical buyers, and listeners can decide how well the case is made.

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.
