In Vienna, Alexander Zemlinsky and Franz Schreker conducted experiments that could be seen as a middle road between the rigorous writing of Brahms, the orchestral opulence of Richard Strauss and the dodecaphonic radicalism of Schönberg, Berg and Webern. Unfortunately their experiments were cut short when the Nazis came to power and banned their music. Vasily Petrenko's colourful and imaginative conducting reminds us of these two composers' central importance for the history of early 20th-century music.

Based on one of Andersen's fairy tales, Die Seejungfrau ("The Mermaid") was Zemlinsky's musical response to his rejection by Alma Schindler, who preferred the young Mahler. As powerful as its Straussian models, this vast symphonic poem goes even further, with dislocated harmony and a resolutely forward-looking aesthetic. It uses a decidedly Tchaikovskian motif as a linking thread, perhaps accidentally. The magical climate of Zemlinsky's music captivates the listener from the first bars until the magnificent conclusion, when the mermaid throws herself into the sea, turning into foam, renouncing her love forever.



Released just a few years prior, Der Geburstag der Infantin ("The Infanta's Birthday") is based on the story by Oscar Wilde. It was originally a pantomime which the composer re-arranged as a suite for large orchestra. It calls for instruments that are unusual in a symphony orchestra, such as two guitars and four mandolins. This pantomime is a curious blend of French impressionism and German post-romanticism, shot through with Mahler's influence, and it débuted in 1908 with sets and costumes in the style of Velázquez. With its delicate, scintillating orchestration, it was a great hit in Vienna, which was then in the throes of modernity.  © François Hudry / Qobuz

Sibelius: The 10 key moments of his discography

The discography of the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius (1865 – 1957) is wonderfully rich, high-quality and diverse. Qobuz offers you an overview focusing on 10 particularly significant moments.

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.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.
