Dmitry Shostakovich's pair of cello concertos are both works from the prime of his career, where his music reflected in often startling detail the composer's long struggles with Soviet authority. Consider for example the finale of the Cello Concerto No. 1, Op. 107, which offers up a Georgian folk song that was said to be a favorite of Josef Stalin. The music proceeds to the expected triumphant conclusion but can never quite shake off the little folk song. The two concertos were both written for Mstislav Rostropovich, who could handle their impressive technical difficulties, and good recordings by Rostropovich and others already exist. Still, this one from cellist Dmitry Kouzov, a Russian player who has been active in the U.S., and the St. Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra (apparently the St. Petersburg State Academic Symphony Orchestra, with its name shortened to meet American marketing demands) is well worth consideration. Kouzov has a dark, burnished tone that fits well with the gloomy slow movements of both concertos, and he is positively electrifying in the finale of the Cello Concerto No. 2, Op. 126, where the cello, at often blistering speeds in the passagework, seemingly goes into battle with military fanfares and snare drums. It is a striking portrayal of the role of the classical composer in a militarized state, as relevant today as it was in 1966. The first concerto is one of Shostakovich's towering statements of individuality in the face of the history's strongest collectivist impulse, based throughout on the theme D-S-C-H (D, E flat, C, B), and Kouzov catches even the small gestures in which this theme is present. Although released by an American label, this is a Russian performance through and through, with the instinctive feel for the complexity of emotion in Shostakovich's music that tends most often to come in Russian interpretations. The music was recorded at the Melodiya label's studio in St. Petersburug. Although the musicians involved are not generally regarded as A-listers, this release provides strong competition to the leading Shostakovich cello concerto versions.

Hélène Grimaud, Élue farouche

Petit tour d’horizon de la discographie d’Hélène Grimaud, à l’occasion de son cinquantième anniversaire et de ses trente ans d’activité discographique. De Denon à Deutsche Grammophon, en passant par Erato puis Teldec, retour sur un parcours incontestablement personnel, sincère et glorieux.

Charlie Chaplin, compositeur

À l’occasion d’une grande exposition qui lui est consacrée à la Philharmonie de Paris, retour sur les liens étroits qu’entretenait Charlie Chaplin avec la musique. Interprète et réalisateur légendaire, l’homme à la canne et au chapeau melon était également l’auteur de la musique de ses films.

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.
