Harmonia Mundi's two-disc tribute to mezzo-soprano Lorraine Hunt Lieberson focuses on her legacy in Baroque opera and oratorio, particularly the works of Handel. The recordings span a relatively brief time (1989-1995) from early in her career, beginning only about five years after she began singing professionally, so it's a testimony to the fact that so many of the elements that characterized her singing -- a voice of exceptional warmth, sensuality, depth, and color deployed in performances of devastatingly focused expression of the music's emotional core, whether in opera or concert works -- were solidly in place from the beginning. Hunt Lieberson's absolutely technical security freed her to devote her considerable gifts to bringing the music to life with absolute honesty. Her performances are so consistent in their tonal beauty, musical refinement, and transparent communicativeness that it becomes almost meaningless to speak of highlights or stand-out tracks. Her duet with counter-tenor Drew Minter in "To Thee, Thou glorious Son," is heartbreaking in its piercing emotionality. The solos from Messiah are so familiar to most listeners that they require truly spectacular performances to make an impact, and here they do; "But who may abide the day of his coming" practically blazes and "I know that my Redeemer liveth" shimmers with radiance. Nicholas McGegan, a frequent collaborator of Hunt Lieberson's in both live performances and recordings, leads the Boston-based Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra (and in excerpts from one opera, Freiberger Barockorchester) in stellar accompaniment, sensitive to the conventions of informed period performance practice and lively in expression. Harmonia Mundi's sound is consistently very fine, warm, detailed, and present. This gorgeous recording will be indispensible for Hunt Lieberson's fans.

Jorge Bolet, la quintessence de Franz Liszt

Sous ses doigts, la musique de Franz Liszt est apparue sous un jour nouveau, grâce à une vision à la fois poétique et lyrique, bien loin de la virtuosité gratuite et tapageuse trop souvent entendue. Avec le recul, son art élégant, noble et racé force l’admiration, car il représente le raffinement et la culture d’un monde à jamais perdu. C’est à l’automne de sa vie, au début des années 1980, qu’il enregistre pour Decca une anthologie en neuf volumes du compositeur hongrois qui fera date, à laquelle il convient d’ajouter d’autres gravures réalisées pour le label espagnol Ensayo, pour RCA dans les années 1970, pour Everest en 1960, ainsi que des enregistrements de studio et de radio dans les années 50, alors qu’il possédait encore tous ses extraordinaires moyens techniques.

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…

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.
