Felix Woyrsch was born in 1860, around the same time as Richard Strauss and Debussy, and died in 1944, one year before Bartók. Until the start of the Great War he remained reasonably modernist, but after 1920 his style, which was firmly rooted in German post-Romanticism, was hard-pressed by the revolutions of Stravinsky, Schönberg, Hindemith, and even Strauss: although more conservative, he professed his admiration for his illustrious contemporaries. In his own words, he learned counterpoint from Palestrina, Gabrieli and Bach, composition from Mozart, Beethoven and Haydn and then later with Brahms and Wagner, and orchestration from Berlioz. This self-proclaimed pedigree didn’t lack panache! The Fourth and Fifth Symphonies date respectively from 1931 and 1935, the dawn of Woyrsch's life, but there is not the slightest trace of pessimism in any of this music and in fact, in spite of itself, it offers a strong dose of modernism stripped of all its romanticism. With these two very mature works discover a composer who defies classification. © SM/Qobuz

In your panoramas...
Glenn Gould, Extravaganza

How can I describe – let alone define – this truly one-of-a-kind pianist? As an alien, perhaps. An alien who whisks us away at supersonic speed before slowing down to land on an infinite world where there is time for everything. It is the acceptance and cultivation of his otherness (or his alienness?) that has made this unconventional pianist one of the greatest and most loved (and criticised) musicians ever.

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 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.
