111 Opera Masterpieces features some of the most popular selections from the world of opera, including mostly arias, ensembles, and choruses, but also with some orchestral excerpts. The operas are almost entirely from the standard repertoire, so the collection largely consists of 19th century Romantic opera along with some Mozart and Handel. While the repertoire accurately represents the most popular and familiar excerpts, the quality of the performances keep this from being an ideal introduction to opera. The singers are for the most part unknown and deliver competent but undistinguished performances, and the same can be said for the orchestras. The album should appeal to casual listeners who want to become familiar with the most famous selections from operas.

Descriptif de l'album

111 Opera Masterpieces features some of the most popular selections from the world of opera, including mostly arias, ensembles, and choruses, but also with some orchestral excerpts. The operas are almost entirely from the standard repertoire, so the collection largely consists of 19th century Romantic opera along with some Mozart and Handel. While the repertoire accurately represents the most popular and familiar excerpts, the quality of the performances keep this from being an ideal introduction to opera. The singers are for the most part unknown and deliver competent but undistinguished performances, and the same can be said for the orchestras. The album should appeal to casual listeners who want to become familiar with the most famous selections from operas.

British blues boom, chronique d’une révolution

Si Joe Bonamassa revient avec “British Blues Explosion”, un an après le “Blue & Lonesome” des Rolling Stones, c’est que le « British blues boom » a été plus qu’un simple courant. L’intérêt des Anglais pour les icônes américaines du genre a engendré une véritable révolution, avec en tête la sainte Trinité de la guitare, formée par Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck et Jimmy Page. À l’aube des années 1960, une fabuleuse déferlante atteint les côtes de la Grande-Bretagne. Et ouvre la voie à de nouvelles dimensions musicales.

Compositrices, ces méconnues

De Sappho de Mytilène à Kaija Saariaho, l’histoire de la musique est jalonnée par des figures de femmes qui ont « osé » écrire de la musique. La création serait l’apanage des hommes ? Notre musée sonore compte en effet plus de compositeurs, connus et reconnus, que de compositrices. Pourtant, leurs œuvres ne sont pas moins passionnantes et il n’y a aucune raison de les considérer comme des objets de second ordre ni de les ignorer. Défense et illustration de la composition au féminin en onze portraits musicaux.

Wilhelm Kempff, le plus humain des pianistes

Artiste d’un autre temps, Wilhelm Kempff (1895-1991) croyait à l’inspiration : il était entré en musique comme on entre en religion, avec une ferveur respectueuse pour les vieux maîtres qu’il servait. Avec son toucher de velours, son sens du phrasé et sa diction de conteur, l’art de Wilhelm Kempff était celui d’un rêveur éveillé, mi-poète, mi-devin, dans une époque où l’expression du sentiment primait sur tout. Il a souvent enregistré à plusieurs reprises ses compositeurs préférés, en particulier son dieu Beethoven, avec lequel on l’a si souvent identifié, laissant trois intégrales des sonates au fur et à mesure de sa propre maturation et de l’évolution des techniques d’enregistrement.
