In barely a decade of existence, Merton College’s new choral foundation has ambitiously redefined the choral landscape of the great university city of Oxford through its twin commitment to excellence & innovation. Now, focusing entirely on American music of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, this latest in a series of thematically conceived recordings begins as a striking ‘double portrait’ of two composers who have written or arranged works especially for the choir.
David Lang’s austere choral postminimalism, informed by a background of Jewish liturgy and thought, provides a striking foil to Nico Muhly’s more richly referential approach; Muhly fell in love with the Anglican tradition as a young chorister in Rhode Island. Two solo organ works by Muhly, and a transcription from his mentor Philip Glass’s opera Satyagraha, widen the expressive gamut still further – from whimsical allusiveness to meditative calm – and are set in context alongside the more stylistically eclectic yet no less powerfully communicative sound-worlds of Libby Larsen and Abbie Betinis. Two final choral items draw on pre-existing traditions of the spiritual and the Baptist hymnal in moving demonstration of the New World’s ability to honour its past while gazing Firmly ahead. © Delphian Records

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.

Orfeo Orchestra, le chaînon manquant du XVIIIe siècle français

Très actif dans la musique baroque française depuis ses premières parutions au début des années 90, l'Orfeo Orchestra, dirigé par György Vashegyi, a été, ces dernières années, distingué par le Palazzetto Bru Zane et surtout le Centre de musique baroque de Versailles pour sa série d'explorations discographiques ambitieuses du répertoire lyrique français – baroque et classique.
