Your attitude toward the English vocal octet (hey, truth in advertising) Voces8 may ultimately be determined by your general feeling toward smooth, crossover-oriented choral singing, conservative in style. But if you have the slightest sympathy toward that, there are good reasons to choose Voces8 over other similar groups: their sound is sensuous without being sentimental, the engineering here from Abbey Road Studios (with composer Jonathan Dove using John Lennon's piano in his work The Passing of the Year, no less) is superb, and above all, the group's programming concepts are inventive and manage to teach while they entertain. That has never been more true than on Equinox, a program that uses the concept of seasonal transition both literally and metaphorically, and thus weaves together sacred and secular material in an unusually effective way. Both growth and death are quietly addressed. The program likewise integrates Renaissance and contemporary material effectively: this is a staple of English choral recordings, but the marriage here seems deeper and more convincing. As for the engineering, Abbey Road's engineers are uncanny in capturing the quiet sounds of Graham Lack's This Ember Night (sample track seven for a taste of what awaits those with even moderately good equipment). The "ember night," one might add, is a pagan concept. The Passing of the Year, for chorus and piano, is undeniably relevant thematically, but whether the piano disturbs the mood is something that may vary by individual listener. On balance, an intriguing and splendidly made album of music for small vocal group.

Les aventures de Christopher Hogwood chez L'Oiseau-Lyre

Disparu en 2014 à Cambridge des suites d’une tumeur au cerveau, Christopher Hogwood fut un des principaux acteurs de l’immense lame de fond provoquée par le mouvement historique qui s’est emparé de la musique baroque et classique à la fin du XXe siècle. En créant son propre ensemble, l’Academy of Ancient Music en 1973, il a jeté les bases d’une nouvelle conception de l’interprétation historiquement informée, mettant à bas les traditions poussiéreuses. Chef d’orchestre, claveciniste, écrivain et musicologue anglais, il laisse un abondant catalogue pour le label L'Oiseau-Lyre, qui a accompagné son remarquable travail de défricheur.

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.

Giovanni Antonini & Il Giardino Armonico, la liberté retrouvée

A la tête de l’ensemble Il Giardino Armonico, qu’il a fondé avec Luca Pianca en 1985, Giovanni Antonini a commencé l’enregistrement des 107 symphonies de Joseph Haydn. Cette monumentale entreprise en est actuellement à son 8e volume et s’achèvera en 2032, à l’occasion des 300 ans de la naissance du Père de la symphonie. Retour sur le parcours de l’audacieux chef milanais.
