The back cover of this Czech release promises "certainly the most intense chamber programme that might be dedicated to the joint memory of Sviatoslav Richter and Dmitry Shostakovich," and the performances live up to the billing. The first half of the program is given over to a pair of string quartets from the year 1960, around the point where Shostakovich's inward turn following his denunciation by Soviet cultural commissars merged with his reflections on the violence of modern war to create a uniquely modern tragic dialogue. The String Quartet No. 8 in C minor, Op. 110, often heard in a string orchestra arrangement but more powerful in the original, was composed after Shostakovich visited Dresden and saw its total annihilation, little changed by that time (the rebuilding of the city did not begin until some years later). Whether the work was dedicated to the victims of fascism, as the composer said, or to those of the Soviet state, as has later been suggested, is in a sense irrelevant; the work develops Jewish melodies and the Dies irae into a fever pitch of despair unleavened by any hint of sentimentality. The shorter String Quartet No. 7 in F sharp minor, Op. 108, is made from the same material, somber but tense. The sizable Piano Quintet in G minor, Op. 57, that rounds out the program dates from before the war and takes another of Shostakovich's inspirations, the late chamber music of Beethoven, as its model. It ends a very dark program with gravity and calm. The Czech Prazák Quartet and Russian pianist Evgeni Koroliov never flag, either technically or emotionally, in a work of the most difficult tragic content, and together they deliver a first-rate recording of Shostakovich's chamber music. Excellent booklet notes are given in English, French, and German.

The Sirens Cycle, l’écouter-voir de Peter Eötvös

Homère, Joyce et Kafka. Voilà les auteurs des textes que met en musique Peter Eötvös dans The Sirens Cycle de 2016. The Sirens Cycle est un quatuor à cordes avec soprano colorature, dans la lignée conceptuelle – l’adjonction de la voix – du Second Quatuor de Schönberg, de la Suite lyrique d’Alban Berg (dans sa variante chantée ou, du moins, chantable) ou des Sonnets pour Elisabeth Barrett-Browning d’Egon Wellesz. L’album se conclut avec le premier quatuor d’Eötvös, Korrespondenz une œuvre qui date 1992, sorte de « mini-opéra » sans chant, qui prend appui sur la correspondance de Mozart et de son père pendant l’année 1778. Omer Corlaix revient pour nous sur l’œuvre, après en avoir parlé avec le compositeur lui-même, spécialement pour Qobuz ! The Sirens Cycle est notre Qobuzissime d’octobre 2017 sur le label BMC. Laissez-vous porter par la musique de l’un des compositeurs les plus attachants de notre époque.

Gounod romantique et mystique

Artisan majeur du renouveau de la musique française dans la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle aux côtés de son aîné, Berlioz, qu’il admirait, et de ses disciples, Bizet, Saint-Saëns, Massenet qui vénéraient sa foi en l’Art, Charles Gounod (1818-1893), mystique et charmeur, romantique en quête d’un nouveau classicisme, doit sa célébrité à quelques chefs-d’œuvre qui réduisent son envergure. Une discographie en plein essor permet de découvrir sa musique dans sa diversité : instrumentale, vocale, sacrée et lyrique.
