Pendant une considérable partie de sa longue carrière dans les théâtres londoniens, Haendel présentait deux grandes œuvres nouvelles chaque saison, un nombre dépassé lors de la saison 1736-1737, lorsqu’il signa trois opéras entièrement nouveaux : Arminio, Giustino et Berenice. On était alors au faîte des quatre années de rivalité du compositeur avec une compagnie dissidente formée par une coalition de plusieurs transfuges et de quelques abonnés mécontents. Les deux compagnies rivales oscillèrent entre triomphes et échecs, mais toutes deux rencontrèrent de graves difficultés. Au cours de l’été de 1736, celle qu’on appelait l’Opéra de la noblesse souffrit de sérieux revers, à la joie de Haendel qui, en guise de revanche, monta la saison la plus ambitieuse qu’il eût jamais entreprise, présentant un répertoire d’une douzaine d’œuvres à Covent Garden, dont huit différentes productions d’opéras et quatre œuvres en version de concert au cours de la partie « oratorio » de la saison, pendant le Carême (alors que l’Opéra de la noblesse devait rester fermé au public). Il ne reprit cependant jamais Arminio, resté l’une des plus rarement données et, donc, des moins connues de ses grandes œuvres dramatiques londoniennes. Haendel commença à composer la musique le 15 septembre 1736, achevant l’ébauche de la partition le 3 octobre et terminant l’orchestration le 14 octobre. La partition faisait la part belle à deux très illustres castrats : Domenico Annibali qui tenait le rôle-titre, et Gioacchino Conti dans celui de son beau-frère Sigismondo. Une des spécialités de Conti était son contre-ut, que Haendel utilisa dans un éclatant morceau de bravoure, « Quella fiamma », qui fait également appel à une considérable partie de hautbois solo obligé, confiée alors à rien moins que Giuseppe Sammartini. Voilà donc un ouvrage dont on ne peut que souligner l’aspect puissamment virtuose, en particulier des deux voix de castrats, ici reprises par les contre-ténors Max Emanuel Cencic et Vince Yi, mais les autres rôles ne manquent pas non plus de nombreux morceaux de bravoure : Haendel pousse ses voix jusque dans les derniers retranchements ! L’ensemble Armonia Atena, dirigée par George Petrou, offre un superbe tapis baroque à ces flammes vocales. © SM/Qobuz


« [...] le chef germain Arminius (célébré en Allemagne sous le nom de Hermann) défait les cohortes du général romain Quintilius Varus en trahissant la famille de sa propre épouse, alliée des Romains. Sur cette trame propice aux affrontements, retournements et grands sentiments, Handel élabore une partition inégale, [...] puis somptueuse par la virtuosité vocale ("Fatto scorta al sentier" du rôle-titre), par l’orchestre ("Quella fiamma" et son hautbois volubile, "Mira il ciel" et ses cors fleuris) comme par la soudaine élévation de la plume jusqu’à des sommets imprévus (la poignante pastorale de Tusnelda qui clôt l’acte II, le duettino du III qui sonne comme un finale, "Vado a morir" d’Arminio où perce "He was despised" du Messie). Quoi qu’il en soit, Arminio n’a guère, jusqu’à présent, menacé Giulio Cesare ou Alcina. Une seule et courte série du vivant de Handel, un seul album enregistré il y a seize ans par Alan Curtis (Virgin). Album qu’à maints égards le nouveau éclipse. Et d’abord par une notion difficile à mesurer mais facile à percevoir : la vie. George Petrou et son orchestre athénien [...] ne se ménagent pas [...] Si le chant était l’atout maître de Curtis, du moins pour les rôles principaux (Genaux, McGreevy, Labelle), la nouvelle équipe lui cède rarement. Moins ferme, moins brillant que dans Alessandro (Diapason d’or de l’année 2013), Cencic est aussi plus humain, et ses doubles-croches restent sensationnelles. [...] les failles du plateau se font vite oublier. Seule compte la foi en une œuvre difficile. Et quelle foi !» (Diapason, mai 2016 / Ivan A. Alexandre)

Descriptif de l'album

Pendant une considérable partie de sa longue carrière dans les théâtres londoniens, Haendel présentait deux grandes œuvres nouvelles chaque saison, un nombre dépassé lors de la saison 1736-1737, lorsqu’il signa trois opéras entièrement nouveaux : Arminio, Giustino et Berenice. On était alors au faîte des quatre années de rivalité du compositeur avec une compagnie dissidente formée par une coalition de plusieurs transfuges et de quelques abonnés mécontents. Les deux compagnies rivales oscillèrent entre triomphes et échecs, mais toutes deux rencontrèrent de graves difficultés. Au cours de l’été de 1736, celle qu’on appelait l’Opéra de la noblesse souffrit de sérieux revers, à la joie de Haendel qui, en guise de revanche, monta la saison la plus ambitieuse qu’il eût jamais entreprise, présentant un répertoire d’une douzaine d’œuvres à Covent Garden, dont huit différentes productions d’opéras et quatre œuvres en version de concert au cours de la partie « oratorio » de la saison, pendant le Carême (alors que l’Opéra de la noblesse devait rester fermé au public). Il ne reprit cependant jamais Arminio, resté l’une des plus rarement données et, donc, des moins connues de ses grandes œuvres dramatiques londoniennes. Haendel commença à composer la musique le 15 septembre 1736, achevant l’ébauche de la partition le 3 octobre et terminant l’orchestration le 14 octobre. La partition faisait la part belle à deux très illustres castrats : Domenico Annibali qui tenait le rôle-titre, et Gioacchino Conti dans celui de son beau-frère Sigismondo. Une des spécialités de Conti était son contre-ut, que Haendel utilisa dans un éclatant morceau de bravoure, « Quella fiamma », qui fait également appel à une considérable partie de hautbois solo obligé, confiée alors à rien moins que Giuseppe Sammartini. Voilà donc un ouvrage dont on ne peut que souligner l’aspect puissamment virtuose, en particulier des deux voix de castrats, ici reprises par les contre-ténors Max Emanuel Cencic et Vince Yi, mais les autres rôles ne manquent pas non plus de nombreux morceaux de bravoure : Haendel pousse ses voix jusque dans les derniers retranchements ! L’ensemble Armonia Atena, dirigée par George Petrou, offre un superbe tapis baroque à ces flammes vocales. © SM/Qobuz


« [...] le chef germain Arminius (célébré en Allemagne sous le nom de Hermann) défait les cohortes du général romain Quintilius Varus en trahissant la famille de sa propre épouse, alliée des Romains. Sur cette trame propice aux affrontements, retournements et grands sentiments, Handel élabore une partition inégale, [...] puis somptueuse par la virtuosité vocale ("Fatto scorta al sentier" du rôle-titre), par l’orchestre ("Quella fiamma" et son hautbois volubile, "Mira il ciel" et ses cors fleuris) comme par la soudaine élévation de la plume jusqu’à des sommets imprévus (la poignante pastorale de Tusnelda qui clôt l’acte II, le duettino du III qui sonne comme un finale, "Vado a morir" d’Arminio où perce "He was despised" du Messie). Quoi qu’il en soit, Arminio n’a guère, jusqu’à présent, menacé Giulio Cesare ou Alcina. Une seule et courte série du vivant de Handel, un seul album enregistré il y a seize ans par Alan Curtis (Virgin). Album qu’à maints égards le nouveau éclipse. Et d’abord par une notion difficile à mesurer mais facile à percevoir : la vie. George Petrou et son orchestre athénien [...] ne se ménagent pas [...] Si le chant était l’atout maître de Curtis, du moins pour les rôles principaux (Genaux, McGreevy, Labelle), la nouvelle équipe lui cède rarement. Moins ferme, moins brillant que dans Alessandro (Diapason d’or de l’année 2013), Cencic est aussi plus humain, et ses doubles-croches restent sensationnelles. [...] les failles du plateau se font vite oublier. Seule compte la foi en une œuvre difficile. Et quelle foi !» (Diapason, mai 2016 / Ivan A. Alexandre)

Les rivaux : Haendel et Porpora à Londres

Après la récente parution du formidable opéra "Germanico in Germania" de Nicola Porpora, le contre-ténor Max Emanuel Cencic poursuit son hommage à Nicola Porpora par un album-récital, enregistré en compagnie de l’ensemble Armonia Atenea sous la direction de George Petrou. Dans ce texte inédit et savoureux, il évoque la rivalité féroce qui opposa Porpora à Haendel à Londres…

Picasso & la Musique

Le génie moderniste de Picasso a très vite dépassé le cadre pictural pour irradier la musique et la danse, deux arts avec lesquels le peintre espagnol a toujours entretenu un rapport étroit, allant jusqu’à influencer ses amis compositeurs rencontrés en cours de route.

François Couperin, le clavecin moderne

Favori de Louis XIV, François Couperin (1668-1733) était la vedette du clavecin au XVIIIe siècle, un instrument prestigieux qui connaissait alors son apogée (avant de retourner dans l’ombre au siècle suivant) et dont il a révolutionné l’approche, entraînant dans son sillon les autres virtuoses de l’époque, Dandrieu ou Rameau. Le claveciniste québécois Olivier Fortin revient pour Qobuz sur la destinée de « Couperin le Grand ».
