Vox Clamantis, under the direction of Jaan-Eik Tulve, has established itself as Estonia’s foremost small vocal ensemble, at home in the worlds of both old and new music. Their ECM New Series discography, accordingly, has ranged from Gregorian chant and Perotin (as on "Filia Sion") to present-day composers including Arvo Pärt ("The Deer’s Cry"), Erkki-Sven Tüür ("Oxymoron") and Helena Tulve ("Arboles lloran por lluvia"). On "The Suspended Harp of Babel" Vox Clamantis turns its attention to Cyrillus Kreek (1889-1962), whose work also took nourishment from ancient sources as well as from contemporaneous musical currents.

One of the innovators of choral music in Estonia, Kreek drew extensively upon folk music and was a pioneer in the documentation of it, recording, transcribing and preserving for posterity hundreds of songs, both sacred and secular. His arrangements of these folk songs and folk hymns, as well as his settings of psalms, provided a bedrock for choirs in an idiom of his own, described by Paul Griffiths in the liner notes here as “restrained and yet glowing”. Cyrillus Kreek, born in the village of Saanika, was a contemporary of Arvo Pärt’s teacher Heino Eller, and both studied at the St. Petersburg Conservatory in the years before the First World War. Kreek’s music, emphasizing simplicity, clarity, and the natural quality of the human voice, influenced many composers in Estonia including Veljo Tormis (who also creatively deployed folk song in choral contexts) and Tõnu Kõrvits. The quietly radiant aura of his work is enhanced on the present recording by the contributions of Marco and Angela Ambrosini playing nyckelharpa and by Anna-Liisa Eller on kannel, the Estonian zither.

Marco Ambrosini’s preludes and interludes imaginatively extend the spirit of Kreek’s pieces and in the case of Kui suur on meie vaesus ("Whilst great is our poverty"), call the music forth, the nyckelharpa drone summoning the kannel to pick out the melody of the folk hymn, preparing the way for the entrance of the singers. Throughout the album the purity of the voices is striking – the liner notes speak of “voices with the transparency of spring water”.
Kreek’s music is celebrated in Estonia with a yearly festival, and there is a museum dedicated to the composer in Haapsalu. Documentation of his work outside his homeland has, however, been scant to date. "The Suspended Harp of Babel" – valuable both as entry point into Cyrillus Kreek’s sound-world and for its pre-echoes of Estonian music to come - is likely to trigger overdue recognition for a unique composer and researcher.

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, cette artiste flamboyante a fait de chacune de ses interprétations une aventure dont nous sommes les témoins admiratifs.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 ans de liberté

Le violoniste et chef italien Fabio Biondi, célèbre notamment pour son interprétation des “Quatre Saisons” de Vivaldi avec son orchestre Europa Galante, est de ceux qui rejettent toute forme de cloisonnement dans la musique. Retour sur le parcours d’un musicien doté d’une grande souplesse d’esprit et figure incontournable du violon baroque.

Guido Cantelli, l’aristocrate de la baguette

La réédition massive et parfaitement restaurée des enregistrements de studio de Guido Cantelli, au début des années 1950 pour EMI et RCA, viennent raviver le souvenir d’un chef d’orchestre dont le lumineux témoignage commençait singulièrement à s’émousser. « Chef d’orchestre des temps nouveaux », Guido Cantelli était un aristocrate de la baguette, toujours à la recherche du beau son à travers un strict respect des partitions qu’il dirigeait avec ferveur.
