Swedish pianist Fredrik Ullén is already making a name for himself as a pianist who specializes in playing hyper-difficult, unplayable kinds of piano works through his success with Sorabji's mind-bending 100 Transcendental Studies. Relatively few might have expected Ullén's next salvo would be to pick up the cudgel of George Flynn, Chicago-based composer whose work stretches back decades but remains little known in Europe, and indeed, even at home. Flynn is a composer who never takes the easy way out; his music is highly individual, non-systematic; his catalog of pieces small and heavily worked through; and his personal idiom completely uncompromising. Flynn himself has long been established as the primary interpreter of his own work; however, there is no reason why Flynn's highly detailed and specific scores should not be interpreted by others. BIS' George Flynn: Trinity brings together the three works in Flynn's major piano cycle and puts them under Ullén's capable hands with startling and compelling results. Trinity was a project that kept Flynn busy some 25 years, starting with "Wound," perhaps Flynn's most famous piano piece, composed in 1968 as a reaction to the Vietnam War. Kanal -- in this context meaning the Polish word for "sewer" and inspired by Andrej Wajda's 1957 film of that name -- followed in 1976; the final movement, "Salvage," was not completed until 1993. In a certain sense, Trinity is a reflection on the Cold War, its politics and dynamics, and the choice of an exploding atom bomb for the front cover is an apt one -- this was the projected outcome of the Cold War, which was consumed with the activity of "simultaneously preventing and preparing for war," to paraphrase Albert Einstein. Flynn's music is highly virtuosic and is at times quite thorny -- especially in "Wound" -- but it is never distant or distracted; it is highly involved both emotionally and intellectually, and to listeners able to get past Flynn's foreboding and complex tonal idiom, it should prove engrossing. There is an element of the romantic in Flynn, but not of the reflexive kind; it is felt in the expressiveness of the writing, which is very pianistic, and in the sheer amount of passion he pours into every bar of this music. Ullén's readings are interesting, of professional grade, and emphasize a flowing quality in the music that is highly attractive, perhaps the performance of "Salvage" is the best example. Another interesting feature of this package is that on the second disc one will fill find a .pdf file of the entire score of Trinity -- many, many pages of carefully worked out score -- and to music-reading-enabled persons who find it difficult to make their way in this work, the .pdf will prove a godsend. George Flynn does not write his music to suit mass tastes, or even the tastes most common to the conservatory; it is bold, visionary music that has to be approached on its own terms. In BIS' George Flynn: Trinity, Ullén and BIS go the extra mile in making this significant cycle accessible to anyone stalwart enough to brave both its impressive peaks and to experience the devastation of its vast wastelands.

Compositrices, ces méconnues

De Sappho de Mytilène à Kaija Saariaho en passant par Clara Schumann, plusieurs femmes ont su déjouer les codes machistes du milieu pour passer à la composition. Si le paysage de la musique classique a largement été dominé par les hommes ces derniers siècles, les œuvres de leurs consœurs, pionnières ou contemporaines, sont tout aussi passionnantes. Défense et illustration de la composition au féminin en onze portraits musicaux.

Sofia Coppola on air

A l'occasion des 20 ans de la sortie de son film “Virgin Suicides”, Qobuz passe en revue quelques grands moments musicaux de la filmographie de Sofia Coppola, à travers ses collaborations avec le duo français Air ou Thomas Mars du groupe Phoenix.

Erased Tapes, un label pas si classique

Dès sa création en 2007, Erased Tapes s’est imposé comme un des labels les plus innovants des quinze dernières années, tout en rencontrant le succès auprès du public. Parfois trop vite réduit à sa vitrine néoclassique (Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds), le label basé à Londres mène des explorations aux confins de l’ambient, l’electronica et l’expérimental à travers un catalogue mené de manière harmonieuse par l’Allemand Robert Raths, que Qobuz vous propose d’explorer.
