The French pianist Fanny Azzuro is the winner of several international competitions, including the World Piano Competition in Cincinnati. Her penchant for Russian music is confirmed in her new album devoted to the twenty-four Rachmaninov Preludes. Fanny Azzuro was still just a student at the Paris Conservatoire when pianist Vladimir Viardo set her to work on Rachmaninov's Variations on a Theme of Corelli during a master class. From then on Russian music became one of her principal interests.



For Fanny Azzuro, Rachmaninov's twenty-four Preludes bear witness to the landscape of the Russian soul. They were very well described by the composer himself, as the pianist likes to say, quoting Rachmaninov: "The work must become a part of the pianist. Each note must bring an awareness of his true artistic mission". "Playing this music is exhilarating", she says, but Fanny Azzuro never loses the thread nor is she overwhelmed by the pathos and powerful expression of the Russian composer.

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.

10 Versions of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique

As a proper manifesto of French romanticism, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique marked the 19th century as much as Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring impacted the 20th. Composed in Paris − which at the time was a global crucible for artistic creation − these two masterpieces catapulted musical language into another dimension. On December 5th, 1830 the revolutionary work of 27-year-old Hector Berlioz deeply moved the musicians present in the small room of the old academy of music, among whom were Meyerbeer and Liszt, who were impressed by the extraordinary audacity of this piece presented just three years after Beethoven’s death.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.
