Ivor Bolton and the Basel Symphony Orchestra continue their exploration into Fauré’s music with the third instalment in their series, devoted to religious music this time. Although he was the organist for the Madeleine Church in Paris, Fauré was not religious and only wrote a handful of religious pieces. While the Requiem is featured as the main attraction in this album and is still very well-known, by contrast, the Messe des pêcheurs de Villerville (Mass of the fisherman of Villerville) is a more simplistic treasure to be discovered.

This Messe was the product of his friendship with André Messager and was composed for four-handed piano in the small fishing village on the coast of Normandy between Trouville and Honfleur, where the two composers had gone on holiday. After the success of the first performance of the original version for women’s choir, harmonium and violin, Messager arranged the first four parts of this mass and Fauré the last. It was finally published in 1907 in a heavily amended form under the name Messe basse (“Low mass”, meaning a mass without music), but Ivor Bolton and his singers and musicians have performed the original version here.

Fauré received an honourable mention at the age of just eighteen when he submitted the magnificent Psalm, “Super flumina Babylonis” to a composition competition in the Niedermayer School in Paris. He won the first prize the following year with his composition dedicated to César Franck entitled Cantique de Jean Racine (“Chant by Jean Racine”), which is more widely known nowadays. Also featured on the album is the rare gem Passion, a prologue for Edmond Haraucourt’s play “Mystère En Deux Chants Et Six Parties” that was written in 1890 without Fauré’s music. © François Hudry/Qobuz

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”.

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.

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.
