Igor Levit n'a pas froid aux yeux. Le jeune pianiste germano-russe aime se confronter aux massifs, aux chefs-d'œuvre les plus complexes, les plus déroutants de l'Histoire. Ce nouvel album en témoigne une nouvelle fois. Après la publication des Sonates Nos. 30 à 32 de Beethoven, puis des Six Partitas de J. S. Bach il y a quelques mois, il allie ces deux mêmes compositeurs dans le cadre d'un même projet, les relie entre eux par la forme de la variation, et assemble ainsi dans un seul geste les deux plus grands cycles de variations qui aient jamais été composées en Europe Occidentale, et qui dépassent par leurs dimensions, et par leur ambition structurelle, polyphonique, le principe même de la variation, et font éclater littéralement l'instrument. Dans les Goldberg, Bach élabore trente variations sur une seule ligne de basse, très belle au demeurant. Avec les Diabelli, Beethoven radicalise encore davantage son écriture pour clavier, et s'amuse parfois cependant avec distance des maîtres du passé. Levit ajoute ensuite à ces deux massifs, l'œuvre d'un compositeur d'aujourd'hui, Frederic Rzewski, né en 1938 dans le Massachusetts, autre partition aux dimensions importantes : The People United Will Never Be Defeated! , Rzewski part d’un « protest song » composé par le chansonnier chilien Sergio Ortega, « ¡El pueblo unido jamás será vencido! » (« Le peuple uni ne sera jamais vaincu »), écrit dans le sillage de l’élection d’Allende et devenu mondialement célèbre lors du coup d’état de la junte militaire en 1973. Deux ans plus tard, Rzewski développait sur le thème un immense tissu de variations, d’une durée d’une bonne heure, voyageant à travers tous les modernismes possibles et imaginables. C’est là un véritable condensé de la musique contemporaine de Schönberg jusqu’à son propre temps : atonalité, sérialisme, postmodernisme, postromantisme rachmaninovien même, ainsi que les plus récentes expériences sonores en tout genre que n’aurait pas renié John Cage. Dans ce triple album, Levit propose durant plus de trois heures sa propre ballade, infiniment variée, sur le thème de la variation à l’infini. © SM/Qobuz

Descriptif de l'album

Igor Levit n'a pas froid aux yeux. Le jeune pianiste germano-russe aime se confronter aux massifs, aux chefs-d'œuvre les plus complexes, les plus déroutants de l'Histoire. Ce nouvel album en témoigne une nouvelle fois. Après la publication des Sonates Nos. 30 à 32 de Beethoven, puis des Six Partitas de J. S. Bach il y a quelques mois, il allie ces deux mêmes compositeurs dans le cadre d'un même projet, les relie entre eux par la forme de la variation, et assemble ainsi dans un seul geste les deux plus grands cycles de variations qui aient jamais été composées en Europe Occidentale, et qui dépassent par leurs dimensions, et par leur ambition structurelle, polyphonique, le principe même de la variation, et font éclater littéralement l'instrument. Dans les Goldberg, Bach élabore trente variations sur une seule ligne de basse, très belle au demeurant. Avec les Diabelli, Beethoven radicalise encore davantage son écriture pour clavier, et s'amuse parfois cependant avec distance des maîtres du passé. Levit ajoute ensuite à ces deux massifs, l'œuvre d'un compositeur d'aujourd'hui, Frederic Rzewski, né en 1938 dans le Massachusetts, autre partition aux dimensions importantes : The People United Will Never Be Defeated! , Rzewski part d’un « protest song » composé par le chansonnier chilien Sergio Ortega, « ¡El pueblo unido jamás será vencido! » (« Le peuple uni ne sera jamais vaincu »), écrit dans le sillage de l’élection d’Allende et devenu mondialement célèbre lors du coup d’état de la junte militaire en 1973. Deux ans plus tard, Rzewski développait sur le thème un immense tissu de variations, d’une durée d’une bonne heure, voyageant à travers tous les modernismes possibles et imaginables. C’est là un véritable condensé de la musique contemporaine de Schönberg jusqu’à son propre temps : atonalité, sérialisme, postmodernisme, postromantisme rachmaninovien même, ainsi que les plus récentes expériences sonores en tout genre que n’aurait pas renié John Cage. Dans ce triple album, Levit propose durant plus de trois heures sa propre ballade, infiniment variée, sur le thème de la variation à l’infini. © SM/Qobuz

Tim Burton en 10 albums

Qu’il tourne en prises de vues réelles ou en stop motion, Tim Burton a construit en plus de trente ans un monde cinématographique où le merveilleux poétique côtoie le gothique et l’humour macabre. À quelques exceptions près, c’est le compositeur Danny Elfman qui l’a épaulé dans cette aventure, formant un duo symbiotique : sans les images de Burton, la musique de Elfman n’aurait pas la même saveur et vice versa, ce qu’ils ont encore prouvé en 2019 avec le bouleversant “Dumbo”.

Julius Katchen, 50 nuances de Brahms

Si les pianistes de notre époque, toutes générations confondues, enregistrent la musique pour piano de Brahms à tour de doigts – surtout les derniers opus, 116 à 119, qui ont la cote –, il n’en a pas toujours été ainsi. Lorsque le pianiste américain Julius Katchen commence ses enregistrements brahmsiens en 1962, il signe pour Decca la toute première intégrale des œuvres pour clavier du compositeur allemand. Il sera suivi une dizaine d’années plus tard par celle de l’Allemand Peter Rösel, et, plus récemment, d’une douzaine de pianistes.
