Russo-Icelandic musician Vladimir Ashkenazy has long been something of an authority on the interpretation of Rachmaninov, both at the keyboard and on the podium. He has conducted several cycles of the composer's three symphonies that anyone would rank among the top readings in the catalog. It's not clear why the live concerts of which this release marks the last of the set, were recorded and released; they were made with the Philharmonia Orchestra in London in 2015 and 2016, when Ashkenazy was almost 80 years old. Whatever the case, it's a situation where everything goes right here. Ashkenazy has had a long relationship with the Philharmonia, and they follow his every move and mood. Despite Rachmaninov's general reputation for accessibility, the symphonies take careful thinking on the conductor's part if they are not to drag, and Ashkenazy excels at the relationship between long line and detail here. Moreover, he catches something deeper in the mood of the Symphony No. 3 in A minor, Op. 44. This work was written in the U.S. in 1939, and it has often been thought to represent nostalgia for Russia in an indefinable way. Sample the second movement, which in Ashkenazy's pulsing, somewhat rhythmically free reading weaves a kind of spell, and it won't seem so indefinable; it's an extraordinary meeting of conductor, musicians, and life experience. The Symphonic Dances, Op. 45, Rachmaninov's last completed composition and another with nostalgic overtones, is just as good, and less extraordinary only because the music is less complex. The live situation adds a tension that sets these readings above even Ashkenazy's other recordings, and its technical smoothness is impressive. If the track timings seem slower than usual in the finales, that's because the substantial applause for each work is retained. An essential release.

Dominique Visse ou la nouvelle Renaissance

Avec son look de vieux rockeur paré de bagues et de boucles d’oreilles, ses cheveux longs hirsutes, ses blousons en cuir semblant sortir de “Easy Rider”, le road movie culte de la génération hippie, et sa voix pointue comme une jambe de compas, Dominique Visse promène depuis plus de quarante ans sa personnalité singulière dans le monde souvent conventionnel de la musique classique. En 1978, il a fondé l’Ensemble Clément Janequin qui allait remettre au goût du jour la chanson polyphonique de la Renaissance française. On leur doit l’émergence de tout un répertoire à travers une discographie exceptionnelle pour le label Harmonia Mundi.

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.

Peter Thomas en orbite

En Allemagne aussi, ils ont leur Michel Legrand : Peter Thomas ! Ses musiques de film souvent déjantées ont fortement marqué toute une génération de spectateurs, dans les années 1960 et 1970. A tel point qu’il est souvent cité et samplé par de nombreux jeunes groupes pop, depuis les années 1990. Le compositeur culte s'en est allé le 17 mai 2020. Nous l'avions rencontré trois ans plus tôt, à l'aube de ses 92 ans.
