After his spectacular recording of Berlioz’s magnum opus, the opera Les Troyens, which was awarded internationally, the Berlioz enthusiast John Nelson has delivered a new version of La Damnation de Faust which also appears to be on track for dizzying success. For this recording made in concert by Daniel Zalay and his team of sound engineers in the Erasme Auditorium of the Palais de la musique et des congrès de Strasbourg (Strasbourg Convention Centre) on the 25th and 26th of April 2019, John Nelson reunited with the Strasbourg Philharmonic Orchestra, whose typically French style and German discipline he likes so much. The army of instrumentalists would have pleased Berlioz, with its eight double basses and six harps among others. John Nelson knows his way round this music like no one else, he knows to inject it with a particular energy all while respecting the musical colour so well defined by the composer. He is surrounded by the cast of dreams, with Faust masterfully portrayed by the tenor Michael Spyres who sings the French perfectly and knows how to embody the character by playing on the quality of his tonality. Joyce DiDonato is an opulent Marguerite, full of fire and totally engaged. Nicolas Courjal plays a very expressive Mephisto; his sombre tone underlines the darkness and bitter irony of the character he plays. The children’s choir Les Petits Chanteurs de Strasbourg and the powerful Gulbenkian Choir perfectly round off this ideal casting. A new milestone in the recording of Berlioz’s main works under John Nelson’s direction for the label Erato, this accomplished record precedes Roméo et Juliette which the same artists will undertake in 2020. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Though the celebrations in France were rather patchy in terms of official concerts, apart from the Festival Berlioz de La Côte-Saint-André, the anniversary of 150 years since the death of Hector Berlioz was marked with great pomp in London, where fervent Berliozian John Nelson, conducted the Requiem on the very day of the event, 8 March 2019, in the gigantic St Paul's Cathedral, at the heart of the "City" of the UK capital.With three hundred musicians and chorists, this was one of the high points of the Berlioz calendar and a real London 'happening'. To save French honour, a colossal concert was recorded and filmed by a team who came from Paris, under the artistic direction of Daniel Zalay. One can imagine the difficulty involved in recording such a sprawling team, spread out throughout the vast edifice that was built after the great fire of 1666. Miraculously spared by the German bombs of 1940, it has a powerful symbolism for Londoners.The English love for Berlioz reflects the love that the composer felt for Shakespeare, which can be seen throughout his works. "There is no city in the world, I am convinced" – he wrote – "where so much music is consumed as in London". He regularly read the London press and closely followed the reactions to performances of his works. This 2019 anniversary concert was inundated by Londoners and the venue was sold out well before the day of the performance itself. John Nelson commands his gigantic team with a masterly hand, in perfect time, and with a perfect familiarity with a composer that he loves above all others, as once did Sir Colin Davis. The Philharmonia Orchestra responds to his slightest indication. The tenor's brief part is magnified by the voice of Michael Spyres, who projects across the assembly from the pulpit. An immense musical and commemorative event, the memory of which will long be kept alive by this album. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Composed in 1824 by Hector Berlioz at the age of twenty-one and premiered at the church of Saint-Roch in Paris in 1825, the Messe solennelle has come down to us following an eventful history. After Berlioz declared that he had destroyed the score, the mass was considered lost until it was rediscovered in Antwerp in 1992. This remarkable work helps us both to appreciate the development of Berlioz’s style – already revolutionary in his early years – and to understand what he owed to his contemporaries, notably Cherubini, whose monumental Requiem Hervé Niquet has already recorded (Alpha 251). Scored for three soloists (soprano, tenor and bass), chorus and orchestra, the work consists of thirteen movements, material from which Berlioz was to reuse in several later works, notably in the ‘Scène aux champs’ of the Symphonie fantastique, which quotes the ‘Gratias’. On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Berlioz’s death, Hervé Niquet, fascinated by this work – ‘There’s nothing he doesn’t know about dramaturgy and vocal style. At the age of twenty!’ – decided to programme it (the concert at the famous Berlioz Festival of La Côte Saint-André was a memorable occasion) and record it in the Chapelle Royale of the Château de Versailles. © Alpha Classics

A new aesthetic calls for new forms: such is the challenge the composer set for himself in the two works presented here. In Les Nuits d’été, Berlioz pioneered, well before Mahler and Ravel, a song cycle for voice and orchestra. In Harold in Italy, scored for large orchestra and solo viola, he experimented with the symphonic genre. These period-instrument performances by Les Siècles, led by François-Xavier Roth, with violist Tabea Zimmermann, also feature Stéphane Degout in the vocal cycle, heard here in the composer’s own version for baritone. File under: out of the ordinary. © harmonia mundi

A most relevant classic thanks to Markevitch’s fiery and electric direction and the sheer excellence of the Orchestre Lamoureux, which he directed at the time. The conductor of Russian descent is completely frantic, and perfectly conveys the visionary nature of this essential chapter of French romanticism. Listening to this version, one can fully grasp the modernity of Berlioz’s language, which lends itself to the most avant-garde staging, a paradox for a piece written for concerts rather than the stage. The sound recording, captured in the early days of triumphant stereophony, is simply extraordinary. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Another facet of Berlioz! We may find it hard to imagine that the composer of such epics as Les Troyens started out as a guitarist... and that his first compositional experience was to transcribe songs, inherited from the Ancien Regime, for voice and guitar. The particular instrument that belonged to Berlioz and Paganini survives to this day; here it brings us closer to the repertoire suitable for a musicale hosted by Berlioz: airs for voice and guitar, but also art songs (a genre which the composer pioneered), along with chamber music and pieces for solo piano. Another way of listening to Berlioz! © harmonia mundi
