Nicholas McGegan à la tête de son Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale est devenu un des spécialistes des oratorios de Haendel, mais il n’avait cependant jamais abordé Joseph and his brethren (« Joseph et ses frères »), un oratorio narrant l’histoire familiale compliquée de Joseph et sa réconciliation avec sa famille juive en Egypte.
Composé en 1744, cet oratorio un peu délaissé est écrit sur un livret assez faible et oscille sans cesse entre le sacré et le profane, un va et vient qui semble être à l’origine du relatif oubli dans lequel il est tombé, à côté de chefs-d’œuvre comme Le Messie, Saül, Samson ou Belshazzar. Écrit, quelquefois mot pour mot, d’après un livret écrit vingt ans plus tôt par Apostolo Zeno pour un oratorio de Caldara, ce texte a souvent été accusé de sentimentalisme voire de mièvrerie à l’époque où on commençait à redécouvrir Haendel dans les années 1950. Ce qui passait parfaitement pour les auditeurs du XVIIIe siècle ne plaisait plus à la critique moderne.
La partition est pourtant du grand Haendel et renferme de grands moments dramatiques tels l’Ouverture et la scène de la prison au Premier Acte ou encore les airs de Pharaon et de Siméon, proprement opératiques. Ce deuxième enregistrement intégral de Joseph et ses frères permettra peut-être une réévaluation d’une œuvre un peu maudite, et ce grâce à la patiente ténacité de ses interprètes. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Descriptif de l'album

Nicholas McGegan à la tête de son Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale est devenu un des spécialistes des oratorios de Haendel, mais il n’avait cependant jamais abordé Joseph and his brethren (« Joseph et ses frères »), un oratorio narrant l’histoire familiale compliquée de Joseph et sa réconciliation avec sa famille juive en Egypte.
Composé en 1744, cet oratorio un peu délaissé est écrit sur un livret assez faible et oscille sans cesse entre le sacré et le profane, un va et vient qui semble être à l’origine du relatif oubli dans lequel il est tombé, à côté de chefs-d’œuvre comme Le Messie, Saül, Samson ou Belshazzar. Écrit, quelquefois mot pour mot, d’après un livret écrit vingt ans plus tôt par Apostolo Zeno pour un oratorio de Caldara, ce texte a souvent été accusé de sentimentalisme voire de mièvrerie à l’époque où on commençait à redécouvrir Haendel dans les années 1950. Ce qui passait parfaitement pour les auditeurs du XVIIIe siècle ne plaisait plus à la critique moderne.
La partition est pourtant du grand Haendel et renferme de grands moments dramatiques tels l’Ouverture et la scène de la prison au Premier Acte ou encore les airs de Pharaon et de Siméon, proprement opératiques. Ce deuxième enregistrement intégral de Joseph et ses frères permettra peut-être une réévaluation d’une œuvre un peu maudite, et ce grâce à la patiente ténacité de ses interprètes. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Jordi Savall : la musique, la vie, l'enregistrement

Il pleuvait à seaux en cette nuit d’octobre dans le Bugey, où il pleut d’ailleurs très souvent à cette époque de l’année. Il était autour de minuit. Nous étions une cinquantaine de passionnés à attendre dans le silence, l’humidité et le froid au Festival d’Ambronay. Puis, sans aucun bruit, Jordi Savall est arrivé, sanglé dans un imperméable blanc et trempé, façon Humphrey Bogart dans Casablanca, serrant une caisse en forme de corps humain contre lui. Avec des gestes lents, il en a extrait, non pas une mitraillette, mais une viole de gambe qu’il a commencé à manier et à accorder avec d’infinies précautions. Puis le miracle est descendu sur l’auditoire.
