The Swiss flutist Emmanuel Pahud has not shied away from going afield of conventional repertory over his career, playing a good deal of new music and even venturing into jazz. Yet perhaps nothing he has recorded thus far equals this album, his first on the Warner Classics label, which took over EMI's roster, for sheer daring. The album graphics do not really convey what's happening here. Yes, the 12 Fantasias for solo flute of Georg Philipp Telemann are included in full, but they're not played sequentially (which historically is probably fine). Instead, they alternate with other works, from the 20th and 21st centuries. The most famous modern flute piece, Debussy's Syrinx, is not included, but in a sense, all the other works are its descendant: the program begins just four years later, with the Sonata Appassionata, Op. 140, of Sigfrid Karg-Elert, and as annotator Denis Verroust points out, it was Syrinx that touched off what has become a full-scale revival of solo flute music. Pahud attempts to pair the Telemann sonatas with modern works that seem to reflect them. He has varying degrees of success here, but the sheer variety of the repertory he touches on is impressive, and so is the way he defamiliarizes the Telemann fantasias and gets you to pay attention to something other than the tonality. Some of the works use extended technique, but most do not, and a work like Estländler (2006) of Arvo Pärt makes a gentle, oblique connection to the fantasias that surround it. Two-plus hours of solo flute music is a lot, and Pahud, instead of choosing to conclude with something like the Pärt, throws a new Baroque element, a big set of variations by Marin Marais, into the mix. You might feel this is a bit much and yet admire the demands Pahud is making on the listener. About Warner Classics' SWR studio sound there can be little debate: it's superb, and it draws the listener strongly into what Pahud is doing.

The Swiss flutist Emmanuel Pahud has not shied away from going afield of conventional repertory over his career, playing a good deal of new music and even venturing into jazz.

Radu Lupu: an Understated Genius

Radu Lupu was a poet, magician and pianist who pursued the indescribable. The Romanian artist’s musical approach was brought to life by his tormented and fiercely introverted personality, which was always shrouded in mystery. When sat at his piano, he would knead the keys like dough, seeking a powerful, consistent sound. Radu Lupu passed away on the 17th of April 2022, leaving behind a relatively small, yet incredibly valuable, discographic legacy.

Mason Bates' weird and wonderful electronic symphonies

What do you mean, you haven’t heard about Mason Bates (yet)? He is one of the hottest names on the North-American music scene. Born in 1977, Bates is a symphonic and lyrical composer as well as an electro DJ (under the alias DJ Masonic) – two completely opposing genres which he takes great delight in mixing. Around half of his symphonic and lyrical work consists, in one way or another, of electronic sounds. The majority of these sounds are “every day sounds”, which are prerecorded and later put into a score. On the release date of his brilliant opera The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, Qobuz interviewed this extraordinary person.

Jordi Savall: Music, life and recording

It was a rainy October night in the Bugey. On October nights, it's always raining in the Bugey. It was around midnight. There were fifty of us, waiting in the cold, the wet and the rapt silence at the Ambronay Festival. All of a sudden, and without a sound, Jordi Savall was there, sopping wet in a white raincoat, like Bogart in Casablanca, holding onto a hard case shaped like a human body. Moving slowly, he drew out not a person but a viola de gamba, which he started tuning and stringing with the greatest care. And then the miracle descended upon the auditorium.
