It is not clear just what the "troika" of the title refers to, but one can imagine two possibilities: the album is taking up the title of the "Troika" section from the Suite from Lieutenant Kijé by Prokofiev, the troika in question being a Russian sledge pulled by three horses, hence the name. But it could also refer to a triumvirate made up of the great Russian composers: Rachmaninov, Prokofiev and Shostakovich, each of whom is represented her by one sonata for cello and piano. But then: why not both? In any case, cellist Matt Haimovitz and his pianist companion Christopher O’Riley offer up a superb range of major works, supplemented with a few gems, some of which quite dark: the explosive version (by both artists) of a cello and piano transcription of Virgin Prayer: Put Putin Away, which won three members of the group Pussy Riot some time in labour camp for this punk blasphemy; as well as a version of the Beatles' Back in the USSR, and another number from the Russian rock star Viktor Tsoi. Haimovitz, known for his forays into less-classical territory, follows his own rule - which in no way detracts from the extraordinary musical quality of this album. © SM/Qobuz

In your panoramas...
François Couperin, the modern harpsichord

A favourite of Louis XIV, François Couperin (1668-1733) was the harpsichord superstar of the 18th century. At the time, the harpsichord was a prestigious instrument which was at the height of its fame (although it would return to obscurity in the following century), and Couperin revolutionised the way it was played, breaking a path that would later be trod by other virtuosos of the period like Dandrieu or Rameau. The Quebecois harpsichordist Olivier Fortin tells Qobuz the story of "Couperin the Great".

Koechlin, the Alchemist

Deeply rooted in both tradition and innovation, the immense work of Koechlin bewildered his contemporaries due to its many facets, its freedom and its philosophical dimension. The album finally allows us to grasp the full measure of this sound alchemist and brilliant prophet who, most probably, was born before his time… We’ll be thinking of him on November 27th, the date marking 150 years since his birth.

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.
