Close your eyes and think of England; it's easy to do with this generous two-disc compilation of recordings showcasing the classic English choral sound of the Choir of King's College, Cambridge. The selections range from the Renaissance to the present day, with a predominance of sacred music and pieces associated with English ceremony; the disc opens and closes with coronation pieces for George II (Handel's Zadok the Priest) and Edward VII (Parry's I was glad), respectively. Noteworthy is the inclusion of pieces by John Tavener (Song for Athene) and John Rutter (the Pie Jesu from the Requiem). Both these works have been associated with tragedies: the funeral of Princess Diana in the former case and the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and July 7, 2005, in the latter, and it looks as though they've earned their places in the great British tradition. The best news is that this collection, unlike so many others consisting of recycled recordings, hangs together nicely. The Parry features not the Choir of King's College, but another group, the Cambridge University Musical Society Chorus. The recording dates range from the late '60s until the late 2000s decade. And there's a great variety of themes, soloists, and performing forces. Despite all this, and perhaps because the engineering of such music has traditions of its own, you never feel like you're listening to a collection of tracks thrown together; the music is intelligently sequenced and carefully remastered. Recommended for anyone who wants to luxuriate in a bit of British grandeur.

Strauss & Kempe : des affinités électives

Le nom du chef Rudolf Kempe (1910-1976) est indissociable de ceux du compositeur Richard Strauss et de l’orchestre de la Staatskapelle de Dresde. À l’occasion de la réédition par Warner des enregistrements réalisés entre 1970 et 1975, Qobuz met en lumière, entre autres, le legs straussien d’un chef à la direction précise, souvent incisive, toujours soucieuse du texte et sensible à ses voluptés.

Nils Frahm, le piano debout

Salué par les critiques de la musique classique comme par les amateurs d’expériences électroniques, le talent de Nils Frahm a mis tout le monde d’accord ces dix dernières années. Qu’il utilise un orgue d’église ou un synthétiseur flanqué de pédales d’effet, le pianiste allemand regarde toujours vers l’avant et c’est pour ça qu’il semble si séduisant.

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.
