Violinist Hilary Hahn had made several critically acclaimed recordings before this 2004 outing, some of them as a teenage phenomenon. But perhaps it was this reading of Elgar's Violin Concerto in B minor, Op. 61, that served notice on the musical world: here was one of the foremost violinists of our time. The Elgar concerto is a punishing, long, difficult work that requires the player to keep hold of the long-distance plan while touching the listener's emotions at many individual junctures, and Hahn succeeds in every way. Elgar called the concerto "awfully emotional, too emotional, but I love it," and the fact that it was written for Fritz Kreisler has led some to prefer more vibrato-laden readings than the one delivered here. Elgar did conduct the premiere performance with Kreisler, but that did not close the book on possible readings, and Hahn's more Apollonian tone has spectacular results here. Sample the finale, starting about a minute in, and note the charisma and total aplomb with which she approaches the effusions of passagework and ornament. Her control over the long arc leads to exciting climaxes in both outer movements. Vaughan Williams' The Lark Ascending is a calm performance that will take the listener into the stratosphere for good, and the accompaniment to both works by the London Symphony Orchestra ranks among the great accomplishments of the aged Sir Colin Davis. Only inexplicably reedy sound from Deutsche Grammophon mars this masterwork, but the sound is still likely better than than that of the classic recordings with which this one can bear comparison.

Clara Schumann, entre artiste et épouse

Pianiste la plus renommée de son siècle, enfant prodige, compositrice, pédagogue… Elle reste surtout connue comme « la femme de Robert Schumann ». Avec sa musicalité et sa virtuosité sans précédents, Clara Schumann a ouvert une nouvelle ère et compte aujourd’hui parmi les plus grandes représentantes du romantisme. Et pourtant, ses œuvres sont toujours nettement moins mises en lumière que celles de ses contemporains, et en particulier de son époux. Jetons un œil sur la vie et l’œuvre de Clara Wieck/Schumann, artiste et compositrice qui était aussi une femme en avance sur son temps.

Marc Ribot, l’anti-guitar hero

Depuis une quarantaine d’années, le nom de Marc Ribot apparaît sur les pochettes d’albums signés Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso et tant d’autres. Et lorsqu’il ne prête pas sa guitare atypique aux plus grands, le New-Yorkais s’amuse, sous son nom, à démonter le rock, le jazz, le funk, la musique cubaine et tout ce qui passe sous ses doigts.
