While many string quartets concentrate on the standard Classical and Romantic literature, the Telegraph Quartet takes a special interest in works that exist on the periphery of 20th century chamber music. The group's debut recording on Centaur, Into the Light, brings attention to three modernist works that are infrequently performed, though deserving of greater attention. Leon Kirchner's String Quartet No. 1 (1949) is perhaps the underdog of the program, for much of this composer's uncompromising music has been overlooked because it resists easy categorization. While neither 12-tone nor serialist, Kirchner's music fits into the postwar avant-garde with its jagged rhythms, intense dissonances, and sharply contrasting expressions, so listeners may need to hear this knotty work more than once to tease out its formal coherence and the lyrical impulses behind the abrasive surfaces. Anton Webern's Five Movements for String Quartet, Op. 5 (1909) is even more compressed in its material, freely atonal, and gnomic in expression, yet more than the other works on the program, it has found a niche in the repertoire as one of the most approachable works of the Second Viennese School. More immediately appealing, though not conventional, is Benjamin Britten's youthful Three Divertimenti (1936), which is playfully neoclassical, tonally sophisticated, and exciting in its virtuosic string writing. The album's timing at 40:15 is quite short for a CD, and some may feel that the Telegraph Quartet should have added another work or two to give better value to listeners, but the length of this album is just right, considering the intensity and density of the music. An impressive beginning for an adventurous group, this 2018 release puts the Telegraph Quartet on the map.

Herbert von Karajan et les grands maîtres du classique

Trente ans après sa mort, l’Autrichien Herbert von Karajan (Salzbourg 1908 - Anif 1989) incarne toujours la figure du chef d’orchestre. À la tête de l’orchestre philharmonique de Berlin, qu’il a élevé au rang de marque mondiale pendant presque trente-cinq ans (1955-1989), il a méthodiquement réenregistré le cœur de son répertoire : Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner, Verdi, Wagner, Strauss…

Ed Banger, 15 ans de liberté

Label emblématique de la scène électronique française, Ed Banger, mené d’une main de velours par Pedro Winter, a célébré ses 15 ans en 2018 en faisant jouer ses classiques par un orchestre classique. L’occasion de revenir sur la discographie d’un label qui, s’il a longtemps été à la mode, est aussi passé maître dans l’art du contre-pied.

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.
