It was not long after Pablo Casals began championing the newly discovered Bach Six Suites for solo cello that violists began to adopt the suites as part of their own repertoire. Print editions edited by violists began emerging and soon recordings were being made as well. Viola recordings of the Six Suites are vastly outnumbered by the countless cello versions available, and those violists who have committed their performances to recordings have produced mixed results. This 2011 Analekta disc featuring violist Helen Callus is among the few truly exceptional examples. What distinguishes Callus' playing has as much to do with what she doesn't do as what she does. She does not heavily ornament her playing, nor does she distort the rhythmic dance qualities with overwrought rubato and exaggerated phrasing. Her playing is marvelously simple, straightforward, and unfettered, qualities that are lacking even in most cellists' recordings. Adding to this is Callus' pristine technique and spotless intonation. Her sound is not rich and deep as might be beneficial if playing the Brahms sonatas, but the lighter, focused tone allows for appropriately nimble tempos while maintaining clarity. The only exception to this is in the Sixth Suite, the only suite Callus transposes to a different key (to G major from the original D major). This transposition keeps the music from putting the performer high on the viola's A string where a less attractive sound may result, but creates some moments that are less radiant. Nevertheless, Callus' playing here is first-rate, and her no-nonsense approach to the suites is worthy of all listeners, not just viola fans.

Descriptif de l'album

It was not long after Pablo Casals began championing the newly discovered Bach Six Suites for solo cello that violists began to adopt the suites as part of their own repertoire. Print editions edited by violists began emerging and soon recordings were being made as well. Viola recordings of the Six Suites are vastly outnumbered by the countless cello versions available, and those violists who have committed their performances to recordings have produced mixed results. This 2011 Analekta disc featuring violist Helen Callus is among the few truly exceptional examples. What distinguishes Callus' playing has as much to do with what she doesn't do as what she does. She does not heavily ornament her playing, nor does she distort the rhythmic dance qualities with overwrought rubato and exaggerated phrasing. Her playing is marvelously simple, straightforward, and unfettered, qualities that are lacking even in most cellists' recordings. Adding to this is Callus' pristine technique and spotless intonation. Her sound is not rich and deep as might be beneficial if playing the Brahms sonatas, but the lighter, focused tone allows for appropriately nimble tempos while maintaining clarity. The only exception to this is in the Sixth Suite, the only suite Callus transposes to a different key (to G major from the original D major). This transposition keeps the music from putting the performer high on the viola's A string where a less attractive sound may result, but creates some moments that are less radiant. Nevertheless, Callus' playing here is first-rate, and her no-nonsense approach to the suites is worthy of all listeners, not just viola fans.

Martha Argerich, l'indomptable pianiste

Voilà plus de soixante ans que la pianiste argentine (naturalisée suisse) Martha Argerich enchante le public par son jeu sauvage et impulsif et par une prise de risques de chaque instant. Défiant les difficultés techniques, cet artiste flamboyante a fait de chacune de ses interprétations une aventure dont nous sommes les témoins admiratifs.

British blues boom, chronique d’une révolution

Si Joe Bonamassa revient avec “British Blues Explosion”, un an après le “Blue & Lonesome” des Rolling Stones, c’est que le « British blues boom » a été plus qu’un simple courant. L’intérêt des Anglais pour les icônes américaines du genre a engendré une véritable révolution, avec en tête la sainte Trinité de la guitare, formée par Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck et Jimmy Page. À l’aube des années 1960, une fabuleuse déferlante atteint les côtes de la Grande-Bretagne. Et ouvre la voie à de nouvelles dimensions musicales.

Jonas Kaufmann en 10 disques essentiels

Avec son physique avantageux de jeune premier romantique, l’Allemand Jonas Kaufmann a modernisé l’image du ténor d’opéra, souvent considéré comme un bateleur impénitent. Outre sa voix puissante et variée, Jonas Kaufmann possède un répertoire immense, en plusieurs langues, à l’aise à l’opéra dans Wagner comme dans Verdi ou Puccini, chantant le lied ou l’opéra français à merveille. Grand admirateur de Fritz Wunderlich, il a commencé sa carrière “à l’ancienne”, en troupe dans de petits théâtres allemands avant de voler de ses propres ailes vers une carrière phénoménale. Après une année 2017 chaotique due à un hématome sur les cordes vocales, Jonas Kaufmann semble parfaitement rétabli et travaille sur de très nombreux projets. En 10 disques, Qobuz tente de couvrir toutes les facettes de son immense talent.
