In a word, the talent of Véronique Gens is stellar. The French soprano (who arguably sounds like a mezzo-soprano on this album) belongs in the category of the great singers from the golden age of opera in the 1960s. The repertoire on this album might be new to some listeners, as it features some works that are seldom heard: this is another strength of Gens, to introduce opera lovers to a greater body of work. She has rock-solid technique, repertoire that is well suited to her voice, clear diction, and excellent emotional depth that she engagingly conveys. Whether it is "Quelle fureur barbare" with its singspiel and three different moods; the subdued, brief, and reverential "Ah, mon fils"; or the magnificence and power-singing of "Prête à te fuir… Le soir pensive," it seems there is nothing the soprano cannot do. Her "Ah, ces perfidies grecs … Dieux, à qui recourir" shows a clean, cool voice with the sound of a mezzo-soprano as she delivers excellent recitative and puts a dynamic swell in the phrase where necessary. The listener really empathizes with her sense of urgency; it recalls Cherubino in "Non so più." Certainly, it does not hurt that she has an equally gifted orchestra accompanying her, conducted by Christophe Rousset. Les Talens Lyriques is a wonderfully dramatic orchestra that masters every dynamic contrast, feeling, and, presumably, every score marking with ease and non-stop energy. Apparently Gens respects her orchestra so much that it is given its own work on the album, a long yet fabulous overture by Salieri (which, admittedly, does have echoes of Mozart). One can hear Gens' low, chesty voice, where she still maintains her excellent technique in "Non, cet affreux devoir... Je t'implore," though it reveals a weakness of the artist: the occasional thinning of high notes. Gens creates her passion through her emphasis of the right words (such as in "Ah, faut-il me venger… Ma rivale triomphe") and through her connecting with the text as in "Prête à te fuir," where she is clearly telling a story. This piece in particular is exciting, for it is not like lighter Baroque opera, but rather a full orchestra that requires a full voice. There are moments of pure, throbbing feeling, for when she sings Berlioz's "Ah, je vais mourir," one truly feels her anguish, and that she will die.

Les aventures de Christopher Hogwood chez L'Oiseau-Lyre

Disparu en 2014 à Cambridge des suites d’une tumeur au cerveau, Christopher Hogwood fut un des principaux acteurs de l’immense lame de fond provoquée par le mouvement historique qui s’est emparé de la musique baroque et classique à la fin du XXe siècle. En créant son propre ensemble, l’Academy of Ancient Music en 1973, il a jeté les bases d’une nouvelle conception de l’interprétation historiquement informée, mettant à bas les traditions poussiéreuses. Chef d’orchestre, claveciniste, écrivain et musicologue anglais, il laisse un abondant catalogue pour le label L'Oiseau-Lyre, qui a accompagné son remarquable travail de défricheur.

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.

Giovanni Antonini & Il Giardino Armonico, la liberté retrouvée

A la tête de l’ensemble Il Giardino Armonico, qu’il a fondé avec Luca Pianca en 1985, Giovanni Antonini a commencé l’enregistrement des 107 symphonies de Joseph Haydn. Cette monumentale entreprise en est actuellement à son 8e volume et s’achèvera en 2032, à l’occasion des 300 ans de la naissance du Père de la symphonie. Retour sur le parcours de l’audacieux chef milanais.
