Charlemagne Palestine's From Etudes to Cataclysms, issued on the Sub Rosa label, is composed and performed on a highly unusual instrument: the Doppio Borgato. It is a modern descendant of the nineteenth century Pédalier or Pedalflügel, a piano with pedal board fancied by organists as an instrument on which to practice. Composers such as Robert Schumann and Charles-Valentin Alkan were so fond of this instrument that they wrote special compositions for it. The Doppio Borgato has 37 pedals and is far more generous in design and capabilities than the Pédalier of old, and on From Etudes to Cataclysms, Charlemagne Palestine takes advantage of such capabilities. The extreme minimalism of Palestine's compositional style might impress some listeners as not making quite enough of the Doppio Borgato. Listening to From Etudes to Cataclysms requires extreme patience, as much of it consists of long stretches of music that are no more than two notes, or two chords, rapidly played in succession. Of course, the point is not what is being played on the pedals themselves but the beating in the air of the repeated notes being sounded for such a long time. Most of us who listen to piano music associate it with the fingers and the fingerboard, and moving past that into concentrating on pure vibration generated with such minimal resources at hand for so long a time might be seen by some as a kind of masochism. However, listeners who don't need to perceive forward movement in music, or rather who respond positively to such challenges as these, then Palestine's From Etudes to Cataclysms might well prove rewarding. Certainly, Sub Rosa's recording is excellent; capturing every little beat in the air in addition to rendering what is played from the keyboard.

Steve Reich, l'animal minimal

Il est l'un des pionniers de la musique minimaliste. Mais aussi l’un des compositeurs contemporains les plus joués. A 80 ans, Steve Reich est une sorte d’intouchable gourou qui ne cesse d’influencer des hordes de musiciens jusque dans la sphère techno. Son évolution personnelle, son rapport au jazz ou aux musiques ethniques mais aussi la transmission de ses œuvres de génération en génération : le New-Yorkais se livre sans langue de bois.

Un nouveau monde entre électro et classique

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama… Depuis quelques années, tous ces noms en vogue ont été regroupés sous la vaste et imprécise étiquette “néoclassique”. A dire vrai, cette “scène” ressemble plutôt à une bande hétéroclite d’artistes fureteurs qui mêlent instruments classiques et production électronique – avec une connexion assumée aux pionniers du minimalisme américain – régalant les sens et ouvrant des perspectives des deux côtés de leur spectre musical.
