An original Philips album of two light-orchestral masterpieces by Dvořák, with the Serenade for Strings receiving a first international reissue on CD.



While best known as a conductor of the central symphonic repertoire, and the operas of Berlioz and Tippett, Colin Davis always showed special affection for the music of Dvořák. He made this album in March 1968, conducting the orchestra with whom he enjoyed the longest and most fruitful relationship of his career, the London Symphony Orchestra. After some troubled times in the early 1960s, when Davis suffered a breakdown and the orchestra passed him over in favour of Istvan Kertesz as music director, they hit a sweet spot together in this album and several others such as the early volumes of their Berlioz and Tippett series together.
The Symphonic Variations remains a comparatively neglected work – astonishingly so, given its tremendous charm. When Hans Richter first conducted the work in Vienna, he declared that he could never remember a new piece achieving such a popular success. Brahms thought equally highly of it, and perhaps valued the quality of wit which is rarely found in Dvořák’s music. Davis certainly did so, and conducted the Variations throughout his career, including late in life with the LSO, but this first recording enjoys a particularly unfettered freedom of expression.
Affection also beams from every bar of the Serenade for Strings which Dvořák composed in 1876, the year before the Variations. This was a happy time for the composer, who was so often beset by suffering and personal tragedy, and it breathes the same joyous air as his Fifth Symphony and Second String Quintet, full of Czech and Viennese dance rhythms, which are handled by the LSO’s string section with rather more lightness of touch than on Davis’s later Philips recording with the BRSO.

Berlioz, la Fantastique en 10 versions

Véritable manifeste de l’émergence du romantisme français, la “Symphonie fantastique” de Berlioz aura marqué le XIXe siècle comme le “Sacre du printemps” de Stravinsky marquera le suivant. Créés à Paris, autrefois creuset mondial de l’effervescence artistique, ces deux chefs-d’œuvre ont fait basculer durablement le langage musical dans une autre dimension. Le 5 décembre 1830, l’œuvre révolutionnaire d’un Hector Berlioz de 27 ans émeut les musiciens présents dans la petite salle de l’ancien conservatoire, parmi lesquels Meyerbeer et Liszt, vivement impressionnés par l’extraordinaire audace de cet ouvrage présenté trois ans seulement après la mort de Beethoven.

Le paradoxe du studio d’Esa-Pekka Salonen

Le Finlandais Esa-Pekka Salonen est un chef d’orchestre acclamé et un compositeur prolifique. Avec plus de 60 disques au compteur, il a fait évoluer l’histoire de l’interprétation. Dialogue avec un musicien exceptionnel qui évoque pour Qobuz son travail en studio et son rapport à l’enregistrement.

Bruno Walter, souvenirs d’un esprit disparu

Écouter les enregistrements de Bruno Walter à la lumière des splendides remastérisations publiées par Sony Classical, c’est s’abreuver à une culture humaniste. Immense chef d’orchestre, la musique est pour lui un sacerdoce, un art de vivre et un art de penser. Ses enregistrements ont conservé son art du chant, intense mais jamais sentimental, grâce à une ligne claire animée d’un rythme souple, assurant clarté, cohérence et vitalité.
