New Seasons is a project undertaken by oboist Albrecht Mayer to create "new" concertos for oboe, based primarily on the operas and oratorios of George Frideric Handel. He and arranger Andreas N. Tarkmann used arias, sometimes including bits of recitative, and gave the vocal lines to the oboe, flute, and bassoon without changing too much of the accompanimental parts to create a cycle of four concertos. Compared to Handel's original instrumental music, these are naturally more lyrical and sometimes more declamatory, but it is surprising how often the music is very dance-like. Lively, moving rhythms are not what is normally expected in vocal music, but it makes the arias used here very natural sounding as concerto movements. Mayer and Tarkmann do not always follow the slow-fast alternation of movements traditionally found in most Baroque instrumental music. In each of the concertos there is a very short, slow movement, ending on a false cadence that implies it is meant to be some sort of introduction or lead-in to the subsequent movement. However, the spacing between tracks plus the fact that most of them lead right into another slow movement contradicts this notion. Each concerto is separated by a transcription or two of some of Handel's most famous melodies, such as "Ombra mai fu" and "The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba." It almost seems to say "If you know this tune, you aren't listening to one of the concertos," and is a little distracting. Otherwise, all of the music is elegant and gracefully performed by Mayer, his fellow soloists, and the Sinfonia Varsovia, regardless of whether it's a merry jig or solemn meditation, and very warmly captured. Some may question why anyone would want to create "new" Baroque concertos for oboe when there are so many already existing. But the idea of creating concertos out of vocal music is an interesting one, expertly carried out here.

John Barry, factotum de génie

Composer pour l’écran nécessite un goût et un savoir-faire pour tous les styles : du disco pour une scène de night-club ou un madrigal pour un film en costumes, le musicien de cinéma doit pouvoir répondre présent partout ! Et John Barry est sans doute l’un des compositeurs de BO qui a su se fondre le mieux dans tous les genres cinématographiques et musicaux.

Le pèlerinage de Gardiner à travers les Cantates de Bach

John Eliot Gardiner a grandi sous un des deux portraits authentiques de Johann Sebastian Bach que ses parents avaient jalousement gardé, en le cachant dans leur ferme du Dorset pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Devenu l’un des « papes » de la musique baroque, la dévotion totale de Gardiner à Bach a produit un ouvrage passionnant, Musique au château du ciel, paru en français chez Flammarion. « Comment une œuvre aussi sublime a-t-elle pu jaillir d’un homme aussi ordinaire et si opaque », se demande Gardiner dans un ouvrage empli de tendresse et d’une rare érudition, qui n’est pas une nouvelle biographie du compositeur allemand, mais la somme de sa propre expérience d’interprète lui dictant des considérations esthétiques et une analyse sensible des fondements harmoniques, contrapuntiques et polyphoniques de son œuvre. Une tentative réussie de découvrir l’homme à travers sa musique.

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.
