Harpist Lavinia Meijer's second solo album for Channel Classics includes works written between 1969 and 2006, and features composers from Great Britain, the United States, South Korea, and Japan. It's an attractive collection of pieces, and Meijer plays them with assurance. She is able to convey both the delicacy for which her instrument is known, as well as the raw strength that some of these modern works require. The Britten Suite, Op. 83, the oldest work here, may not be the composer's most profound statement, but it is certainly among his loveliest, suffused with an autumnal atmosphere, and he understood well how to exploit the harp's versatility. Spiders and Bugs, two suites by Paul Patterson, a student of Elizabeth Luytens and Richard Rodney Bennett, are pleasantly pretty but insubstantial pieces that don't deliver on the menace that their titles suggest. Visions in Twilight, an impressive work by American Garrett Byrnes, is mysteriously evocative, but it also creates a sense of high and sometimes unsettling drama, as if these twilight visions may not be entirely benevolent. South Korean Isang Yun's In Balance, written for Ursula Holliger, is also a substantial piece. Yun writes idiomatically for the instrument while incorporating, at least sporadically, a tonal palette more harmonically adventurous than that of the works that precede it. The CD closes with Takemitsu's Stanza II for harp and tape, which is bracingly astringent after the overall sweetness of the pieces that come before it, but which is also darkly atmospheric, with a surprisingly potent emotional punch. The sound of the CD is clean, with a strong sense of presence.

Le paradoxe du studio d’Esa-Pekka Salonen

Le Finlandais Esa-Pekka Salonen est un chef d’orchestre acclamé et un compositeur prolifique. Avec plus de 60 disques au compteur, il a fait évoluer l’histoire de l’interprétation. Dialogue avec un musicien exceptionnel qui évoque pour Qobuz son travail en studio et son rapport à l’enregistrement.

La grande aventure du Fidelio de Beethoven

Basé sur un fait divers survenu en France pendant la Terreur révolutionnaire (l’histoire d’une jeune femme intrépide se déguisant en homme pour tenter de sauver son mari emprisonné au fond d’un cachot), l’unique opéra de Beethoven a connu une destinée mouvementée, remanié de part et d’autre au fil des années. Nouvelle preuve du génie musical du compositeur allemand, “Fidelio” lui a aussi permis de mettre en musique un livret répondant à ses opinions politiques.

Compositrices, ces méconnues

De Sappho de Mytilène à Kaija Saariaho, l’histoire de la musique est jalonnée par des figures de femmes qui ont « osé » écrire de la musique. La création serait l’apanage des hommes ? Notre musée sonore compte en effet plus de compositeurs, connus et reconnus, que de compositrices. Pourtant, leurs œuvres ne sont pas moins passionnantes et il n’y a aucune raison de les considérer comme des objets de second ordre ni de les ignorer. Défense et illustration de la composition au féminin en onze portraits musicaux.
