This two-disc package from Emmanuel Pahud explores the music performed at the court of King Frederick the Great of Prussia. Frederick was an accomplished amateur flutist, and, thus, cultivated music for his instrument from the best composers of his day. This included Johann Sebastian Bach, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, and Johann Joachim Quantz. Frederick himself and his sister Anna Amalia also composed works featuring the flute. Pahud chose selections by each of these composers, filling the first disc with concertos and the second with chamber pieces and solos. These pieces span the period between the Baroque and Classical eras, but in general even Frederick's and C.P.E. Bach's sonatas have more in common with the former than the latter. They still employ the basso continuo accompaniment, however, all of it is very charming and agreeable, as much of the music of that era is. The pieces by the lesser known composers, such as Princess Anna Amalia and Johann Friedrich Agricola, may not be as musically sophisticated, but still have some appeal to the listener and a few challenges for Pahud. There are passages requiring virtuosic skill in most of the music, and in the solo sonata by C.P.E. Bach, Pahud's care for the music and nimbleness is plain to hear. He and his colleagues bring elegance and gracefulness to the music, even in the more lively, animated movements, making it all seem perfectly suited to the court of Frederick, the Flute King. [The Deluxe Edition is a CD-sized, hardcover book with the discs included.]

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”.

Nils Frahm, an Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.

Steve Reich in 10 Works

Steve Reich belongs to that very small circle of composers who can claim to have changed the face of contemporary music over the last fifty years. Qobuz presents a selection of ten of the most important works from his catalogue.
