The marketing of this collection of Beethoven's piano sonatas (minus the two small student pieces of Op. 49) may have overshadowed its musical content. The charismatic Korean pianist HJ Lim first gained a following on YouTube, where she posted her work from France in order to keep in touch with her parents back home. Her gutsy decision to plunge into the entire Beethoven cycle has been released digitally by EMI, at a bargain price, and heavily advertised on Facebook. Lim's sheer ambition is displayed in her organization of the set, which is not chronological but instead uses "themes": Heroic Ideals, Eternal Feminine -- Youth, Assertion of an Inflexible Personality, Nature, Extremes in Collision, Resignation and Action, Eternal Feminine -- Maturity, and Destiny. It might be objected that these are not satisfying as categories, and indeed they don't really hold together well, nor emerge convincingly in Lim's playing, which seems to approach each piece is a sort of free-flowing, rhythmically irregular way. Yet Lim defends her programming in a remarkable set of (digital) notes, making extensive biographical references to Beethoven's own writings and those of his assistant Schindler, among others. This is quite an intellectual feat for one who has made it through the rigors of conservatory training, and in many specific locations Lim's observations are both persuasive and generative of fresh interpretations. To take just one example, the placement of the Piano Sonata No. 21 in C major, Op. 53 ("Waldstein"), in the "Nature" segment is surprising yet revelatory, as Lim turns the slow movement into a series of murky forest whispers and the finale into a blaze of sunny Romantic transcendence. She does a good job of backing up her more outrageous ideas with Beethoven's own words, many of them dealing with his always tempestuous love life, and at the local level, if not in wider thematic thrusts, her interpretations make sense, and she has the technical chops to pull them off. The best word for Lim at this point is "prodigy"; her talent is impressive but needs focus, and she gets extra points for a star quality that is well suited to the way EMI is trying to present this release. That star quality is, moreover, something much needed in mainstream classical music.

Bernard Haitink, prophète en son pays

Le grand chef d’orchestre néerlandais nous a quittés le 21 octobre 2021 à l’âge vénérable de 92 ans. Reconnu par ses pairs et dans son pays dès sa jeunesse, Bernard Haitink accomplira la majeure partie de son immense carrière aux Pays-Bas, d’abord à la tête de l’Orchestre de la Radio néerlandaise puis du prestigieux Concertgebouw d’Amsterdam pendant vingt-sept ans, avec lequel il enregistrera de nombreux disques devenus légendaires.

Suzanne Danco, une soprano sincère et sensible

Disparue en août 2000, la cantatrice belge Suzanne Danco reste bien vivante dans le souvenir des mélomanes à la faveur de nombreuses rééditions, dont le superbe coffret de 8 disques publié par Decca Eloquence Australie. Mozartienne accomplie, la soprano belge fit les beaux jours du Festival d’Aix-en-Provence dès ses débuts en 1948, avant d’enregistrer des versions de référence de Shéhérazade de Ravel avec Ansermet, qui la demandait sans cesse pour toute une série de disques essentiels. Ayant eu la chance de la connaître de très près, l’auteur décrira donc l’artiste comme une amie chère.

Strauss & Kempe : des affinités électives

Le nom du chef Rudolf Kempe (1910-1976) est indissociable de ceux du compositeur Richard Strauss et de l’orchestre de la Staatskapelle de Dresde. À l’occasion de la réédition par Warner des enregistrements réalisés entre 1970 et 1975, Qobuz met en lumière, entre autres, le legs straussien d’un chef à la direction précise, souvent incisive, toujours soucieuse du texte et sensible à ses voluptés.
