Barber: Concertos in RCA Red Seal's "Classics Library" series is a combination of selections drawn from two full-price discs taken from RCA's 1990s back catalog of St. Louis Symphony Orchestra recordings. Leonard Slatkin is an ace commander of the orchestra when it comes to the specialized business of supporting soloists. Although he has since moved on, Slatkin's relationship with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra was his happiest, and certainly the most productive in terms of recordings. The disc opens with Kyoko Takezawa's delicate traversal of Barber's Violin Concerto, Op. 14. As good as it is, it is hard to imagine how this recording could outdistance the incredible popularity of Gil Shaham's Deutsche Grammophon recording of the same work. Takezawa's finely balanced, seamless combination of Romantic warmth with no-nonsense Classicality is preferred to Shaham's more emotionally overwrought reading. However, from an engineering standpoint it is obvious that the soloist could stand to be a little louder in relation to the orchestra, a situation that remains much the same in Steven Isserlis' radiant reading of Barber's Cello Concerto, Op. 22. The Barber Piano Concerto, Op. 38, performance here won the Grammy award for best concerto performance in 1991, and it is easy to see why. This was pianist John Browning's second go-round in this work on record, the first being with George Szell and the Cleveland Orchestra in 1964, an explosive and angry performance that has never appeared on CD. As with many "second chance" recordings of great soloists in works that are still new at the first juncture, Browning has grown into the piece. Though he retains the force and frustration that make this work Barber's most atypical concerto, Browning mines its lyric vein even more effectively than in his first recording. Although remastered in the 24-bit realm, this new disc does not seem to have the same punch and presence that the old 16-bit version did. Notwithstanding this minor caveat, at mid-price Barber: Concertos is an incredible bargain, and if one would like to have these works grouped together on a single disc, it is an ideal option.

Clara Schumann, entre artiste et épouse

Pianiste la plus renommée de son siècle, enfant prodige, compositrice, pédagogue… Elle reste surtout connue comme « la femme de Robert Schumann ». Avec sa musicalité et sa virtuosité sans précédents, Clara Schumann a ouvert une nouvelle ère et compte aujourd’hui parmi les plus grandes représentantes du romantisme. Et pourtant, ses œuvres sont toujours nettement moins mises en lumière que celles de ses contemporains, et en particulier de son époux. Jetons un œil sur la vie et l’œuvre de Clara Wieck/Schumann, artiste et compositrice qui était aussi une femme en avance sur son temps.

L’Oratorio de Noël de Bach

Encore lui ! Chaque fin d’année, c’est simple : l’Oratorio de Noël (BWV 248) de J. S. Bach est indétrônable. Au vu du nombre de concerts, mais aussi d’enregistrements, aucune autre œuvre sacrée n’a atteint un tel niveau de popularité et de diffusion. Trois cents ans après, Qobuz revient sur la genèse d’une des œuvres les plus connues du compositeur allemand.

Blandine Verlet, les années Philips

En vue du 80e anniversaire de la naissance de Blandine Verlet (disparue en décembre 2018), Universal Music France a réédité l’intégralité des enregistrements que la claveciniste réalisa pour la maison Philips entre 1970 et 1982. Une somme longtemps disparue, rééditée en partie en haute définition, à redécouvrir de toute urgence, notamment pour les prises de son Philips de l’époque, souvent miraculeuses. Universal a autorisé Qobuz à reproduire la longue et détaillée notice de présentation du livret, écrite par notre spécialiste classique.
