The title Handel in Darmstadt may be puzzling for general listeners, for Handel never passed any extended period of time in that southwestern German city. The title refers not to the travels of the composer himself, but to those of some of his works, which were copied into a so-called Darmstadt Harpsichord Book along with those of other German composers. One of these other composers was Christoph Graupner, in whose music the performer, Quebec harpsichordist Geneviève Soly, has specialized; part of her aim is to show the existence of a stronger connection between Handel and Graupner than has generally been recognized. This is a specialist matter, but there's also a good deal to interest the general Handel lover here. These are all early works of Handel, and they've never been brought together in quite this combination. They show a young composer with total master of the flamboyant Italian instrumental sonatas (a young genre itself at the time), the formal French suite, and the intricacies of German counterpoint, and adding his own peculiar economy of timing to each one. The opening Chaconne for keyboard in G major, HWV 435a, makes a good sample; it's neither a virtuoso work nor a technical exercise, but a rigorous yet unfailingly pleasing exploration of musical space. Soly is technically competent and versed in the music of the era, although her readings of the dance movements are rather plain. The sound environment of the Quebec church where the music was recorded is empty and enervating, but Soly's notes, in French and English, are informative and thorough.

La grande aventure du Fidelio de Beethoven

Basé sur un fait divers survenu en France pendant la Terreur révolutionnaire (l’histoire d’une jeune femme intrépide se déguisant en homme pour tenter de sauver son mari emprisonné au fond d’un cachot), l’unique opéra de Beethoven a connu une destinée mouvementée, remanié de part et d’autre au fil des années. Nouvelle preuve du génie musical du compositeur allemand, “Fidelio” lui a aussi permis de mettre en musique un livret répondant à ses opinions politiques.

Le pèlerinage de Gardiner à travers les Cantates de Bach

John Eliot Gardiner a grandi sous un des deux portraits authentiques de Johann Sebastian Bach que ses parents avaient jalousement gardé, en le cachant dans leur ferme du Dorset pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Devenu l’un des « papes » de la musique baroque, la dévotion totale de Gardiner à Bach a produit un ouvrage passionnant, Musique au château du ciel, paru en français chez Flammarion. « Comment une œuvre aussi sublime a-t-elle pu jaillir d’un homme aussi ordinaire et si opaque », se demande Gardiner dans un ouvrage empli de tendresse et d’une rare érudition, qui n’est pas une nouvelle biographie du compositeur allemand, mais la somme de sa propre expérience d’interprète lui dictant des considérations esthétiques et une analyse sensible des fondements harmoniques, contrapuntiques et polyphoniques de son œuvre. Une tentative réussie de découvrir l’homme à travers sa musique.

Herrmann & Hitchcock : le duo était presque parfait

De 1955 à 1966, le cinéaste Alfred Hitchcock et le compositeur Bernard Herrmann ont travaillé ensemble sur une poignée de chefs-d’œuvre comme Psychose ou La Mort aux trousses. Une collaboration aussi exceptionnelle que houleuse…
