Quitte à nous répéter (mais on ne risque pas trop grand’chose à bien répéter, dans le milieu musical…), l’on n’est pas toujours aussi bien servi que par soi-même : nombre de compositeurs sont d’exécrables chefs d’orchestre lorsqu’il s’agit de donner leurs propres œuvres. Ce n’est certes pas le cas de Benjamin Britten qui sut merveilleusement diriger sa musique – ainsi que celle des autres, d’ailleurs. Pour la Discothèque idéale, il nous a semblé indispensable qu’y figure l’enregistrement réalisé par Britten en personne de son premier opéra, Peter Grimes, non pas dans la foulée de la création mondiale (assurée en 1945 par Reginald Goodall), mais en 1958 avec une distribution légèrement différente, même si le rôle principal reste chanté par Peter Pears. L’ouvrage avance sans pitié, dans un lyrisme exacerbé et une certaine âpreté orchestrale parfaitement en osmose avec le livret et le contenu orchestral, les rôles féminins ne tombent pas dans le mièvre ou le belcantisant, et le chœur – un véritable personnage à part entière – se donne entièrement, avec passion et fougue. Ajout indispensable à l’Idéale Discothèque qobuzienne. © SM/Qobuz

Descriptif de l'album

Quitte à nous répéter (mais on ne risque pas trop grand’chose à bien répéter, dans le milieu musical…), l’on n’est pas toujours aussi bien servi que par soi-même : nombre de compositeurs sont d’exécrables chefs d’orchestre lorsqu’il s’agit de donner leurs propres œuvres. Ce n’est certes pas le cas de Benjamin Britten qui sut merveilleusement diriger sa musique – ainsi que celle des autres, d’ailleurs. Pour la Discothèque idéale, il nous a semblé indispensable qu’y figure l’enregistrement réalisé par Britten en personne de son premier opéra, Peter Grimes, non pas dans la foulée de la création mondiale (assurée en 1945 par Reginald Goodall), mais en 1958 avec une distribution légèrement différente, même si le rôle principal reste chanté par Peter Pears. L’ouvrage avance sans pitié, dans un lyrisme exacerbé et une certaine âpreté orchestrale parfaitement en osmose avec le livret et le contenu orchestral, les rôles féminins ne tombent pas dans le mièvre ou le belcantisant, et le chœur – un véritable personnage à part entière – se donne entièrement, avec passion et fougue. Ajout indispensable à l’Idéale Discothèque qobuzienne. © SM/Qobuz

Le tour du monde choral de Marcus Creed

Marcus Creed incarne, auprès des auditeurs de chant choral, et davantage encore a cappella, un idéal de constance, d'exigence et d'exploration. Cette série chez Hänssler avec l'Ensemble vocal de la Radio de Stuttgart propose un tour du monde de la musique chorale, des Amériques au Japon en passant par les grandes nations vocales d'Europe.

Nils Frahm, le piano debout

Salué par les critiques de la musique classique comme par les amateurs d’expériences électroniques, le talent de Nils Frahm a mis tout le monde d’accord ces dix dernières années. Qu’il utilise un orgue d’église ou un synthétiseur flanqué de pédales d’effet, le pianiste allemand regarde toujours vers l’avant et c’est pour ça qu’il semble si séduisant.

Martha Argerich, l'indomptable pianiste

Voilà plus de soixante ans que la pianiste argentine (naturalisée suisse) Martha Argerich enchante le public par son jeu sauvage et impulsif et par une prise de risques de chaque instant. Défiant les difficultés techniques, cet artiste flamboyante a fait de chacune de ses interprétations une aventure dont nous sommes les témoins admiratifs.
