On June 2, 1640, a silent funereal procession proceeded to the Sint-Jacobskerk in Antwerp. The deceased was none other than the famous painter of the Baroque period, Peter Paul Rubens, and it seems clear – musicological research seems to have established the fact beyond doubt – that the requiem mass sung by the cathedral choir on this occasion was an eight-part work, i.e. a Dies irae printed in Antwerp 28 years ago and written by the Italian composer Orazio Vecchi (1550-1605). Of all the Masses published or available in Antwerp at that time, only the Missa pro defunctis by Vecchi, originally published posthumously in Italy by Phalèse in 1612 (with other masses of the same composer as well as Monteverdi’s Missa in illo tempore, the latter being an important artist in Rubens' life who began his career at the Mantuan court where he worked alongside the musician), deserves special consideration in the context of these funerals. The album offers the complete Mass setting, as well as liturgical works by a few other musicians who lived or worked in the region during Rubens’ life: La Hèle, Ruimonte and Lobo. The Belgian ensemble Graindelavoix, a dozen vocal soloists singing according to the uses of the time, is at the helm. In a way, you’ll be taking part in the funeral ceremonies of the great Rubens… © SM/Qobuz

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.

Strauss & Kempe: Elective Affinities

The name of conductor Rudolf Kempe (1910-1976) is indissociable from those of composer Richard Strauss and the Dresden Staatskapelle orchestra. As Warner is now re-releasing the recordings made between 1970 and 1975, Qobuz is putting the spotlight on the Straussian legacy of a precise, often incisive conductor, who always paid the greatest attention to the text and its charms.

Steve Reich, The Minimal Animal

He is one of the pioneers of minimalist music. But he is also one of the most-played contemporary composers. At 80, Steve Reich is a kind of untouchable guru who still exerts a powerful influence over musicians of many genres, even techno. His personal evolution; his relationship to jazz or world music; the transmission of his works down the generations: the straight-talking New Yorker tells all.
